Having never grew up with Rayman, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this game. Rayman himself has an ingenious design, great character and excellent controls. I loved controlling Rayman through every well-crafted level. I'd be lying, however, if I said that it could at times feel cheap; some levels feel like they are designed to kill you. It also doesn't help that lives are hard to come by. It all can feel very harsh and I admit I used the extra continue cheat many times. But I never grew tired of the game and eventually overcame it, yelling "Yeah!" as I got through every level.
