    The best platformer currently available for the GBA; Ubisoft beat Mario at his own game... for now.
  2. Features great graphics, amusing animation, and terrific game play.
  3. Looking good doesn’t hurt the game, but it’s RA’s accessibility that makes it a game that every fan of platform gaming should have. There’s a sense of fun about RA.
  4. It looks great and provides a decent challenge. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    This port of the PlayStation classic is easily the most beautiful looking game in the GBA launch lineup, with huge, colorful, and astonishingly well-animated characters and backgrounds.
  6. It offers solid platform-based gameplay and a good deal of enjoyment for those patient enough to reap its rewards.

    This game is fantastic. One of the launch titles for the Gameboy Advance, this game truly demonstrates what the system is capable of. The enviroments are lush and beautiful, character animtions are fluid and stunning, the gameplay is difficult, but it has that "I can do it" feeling to it. If you like 2-D platformers, don't miss this game. Expand

    Rayman passed untouchable in the GBA, similar to the PS adaptations that made the franchise important. What i want now, is too Ubisoft stop being lazy, and make more of this frantastic series. Expand

    Make no mistake this game is *hard* and there will be times when you want to throw down your GBA in frustration. However Rayman is an absolutley classic platformer with plenty of variation and huge reply value. Expand

    Rayman Advance is easily one of the most challenging GBA titles. For that reason, I nearly ripped of my finger in frustration (sarcasm.) But the graphics are colorful and the animation is jaw-dropping. I just wish that the game had more music in it that isn't so repetitive. Expand

    All you do is throw fists that's it you can duck and jump and do what ever mario can do. The music is great untill you find there's only 2 or 4 songs in the game! if you go through this site you'll find a couple of reviews I'm a true gamer and I know what I'm talking about. Expand
