    Rayman Ds is a lush and wonderful port of Rayman 2: TGE!

    The controls work perfectly, the graphics are updated, and the charm is still here in this port.

    On nintendo life, this got a 4.

    Why?

    I say no reason. Don't forget; this game came in 2004. Do you like this? Do you have a dsi? Buy Rayman for dsiware.

  1. It's hard to imagine anyone splashing their moolah on Ninty's new handheld and being happy to entertain themselves with pedestrian ports of antique titles such as Rayman DS.

    The absence of the thumb stick perhaps dampens game play the most. Like we saw with "Mario DS," 3D platformers are heavily reliant on analog control, and the DS touch screen makes for a very poor analog stick indeed.

    A not-all-that-great port of a fantastic platformer, losing a ton in the translation of what made Rayman 2 so great in the first place. Sub-standard control and muddy graphics muck up the original's tight gameplay and vivid imagery.
