    One of the best 3D platformers i have ever played.
    The game was super fun and the graphics looked FANTASTIC.I´m glad they brought back using punches instead of throwing lums,the new powerups are a nice touch and a welcomed change to the gameplay and the platforming is as good as it has always been.The story was very nice,André the Black Lum starts turning all the red lums to Hoodlums(A.K.A. More black lums) and Rayman has to stop them.Globox accidentally swallows André and Rayman helps him get to a doctor to get André out and stop him from taking over the world.The humor was really good too,it made me laugh and made me chuckle at times.One thing that kinda annoyed me was that it was kinda easier than the other 2 previous games but it still was challenging and also the game is kinda short and you will beat it in a day or less.Overall,the game was fantastic it´s just kinda short,it´s really underrated and you should get it if you come across it.

    A HUGE disappointment!!! I was REALLY looking forward to this game. Rayman 2 was a great game and I was only expecting the same when i bought A HUGE disappointment!!! I was REALLY looking forward to this game. Rayman 2 was a great game and I was only expecting the same when i bought Rayman 3. However despite being a graphically superior game to Rayman 2, with beautiful environments and awesome lighting, the gameplay is downright repetitive and boring. Throughout playing it, i was always hoping for that moment where it would get exciting and fun but i never found it. Its just tooooo repetitive. There's only 1 way of attacking and that's with your fists, unlike other platform games where there's tonnes of different attacks. Yes it was the same in Rayman 2 but the story and gameplay in Rayman 2 was just better. This game brings nothing new to the table. The humour was actually sorta lame as well, and i didnt like how they made the characters speak english! i preferred their jibberish like in Rayman 2. I really dont know how this game got such good ratings!...because from reading them i was convinced it was a good game...but it looks like the reviewers that gave the game lower scores are the right ones this time. If i wanna play platform games i think i'll pull out my N64 and play some banjo kazooie or donkey kong 64....now they were awesome platformers! As for Rayman 3, it's going on eBay. Full Review »
