    Most of the racing is exciting and a treat for the eyes, but there should have been more in the way of multiplay.
  2. The fact that I got so involved in the solo portion of a multiplayer game meant they were doing something right. [June 2002, p.99]

    As a multiplayer game, though, the fun doesn't last as long as it should. [July 2002, p.76]
  4. Addictive and fun whether you're entertaining a group of friends or a party of one. [June 2002, p.110]
  5. The low asking price and endearing charm of the Rayman universe prevent this decent attempt at a story-less “Rayman 2” spinoff from completely bombing out
  6. It's entertaining for a while, but unless you add alcohol and gambling, it won't dominate your life. [June 2002, p.38]
  7. 50
    It's too bad that only about half of Rayman Arena is fun to play. [August 2002, p.65]

    Rayman gone multiplayer. Never saw it coming. Well it's not a half bad game, with elements of racing, and battling, a overall decent Rayman gone multiplayer. Never saw it coming. Well it's not a half bad game, with elements of racing, and battling, a overall decent game if you have the multitap for 4 people. Just one thing, Graphics are terrible but if your straightforward game play, get this one. Expand
