  1. The levels are masterfully designed, the learning curve is smooth and gradual, and the variety in gameplay makes this game appropriate for both novice and expert gamers alike.
  2. Da Gameboyz
    The game is a near perfect expression of the 3D platform genre and its addictive gameplay will have you returning to it again and again.
  3. Daily Radar
    Although it doesn't make full use of Sony's new 800-pound gorilla, it does have spectacular and colorful graphics, ingenious level design, a wonderful cast of characters and an enormous game world to explore.
  4. Jaw-dropping graphics, sound and gameplay herein combine and form a lone fabulous, must-have package.
  5. 100
    It's the best version of one of the best 3D platform games ever made.
  6. Despite a few blemishes, it's hard to call this game anything but beautiful.
  7. One of the most engaging, entertaining, and original games for the PS2.
  8. In spite of its upgrades, Revolution suffers in some areas compared to other versions of Rayman 2, particularly the Dreamcast game.
  9. Rayman is more like "MYST" -- a beautiful journey where nothing much is required of you, and nothing much really happens. And with the sun shining, the waterfalls sparkling, the magic mushrooms making pyramids, and a tummy full of Lums, that's just a pretty peachy place to be.
  10. There's no better platform game available for the PS2.
  11. 88
    It's one of the greatest achievements in the history of 3D platform games and should be given the same admiration given to titles like Miyamoto's "Mario 64."
  12. The stunning look of the game is just about the most beautiful thing we have ever seen.
