    Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc was an amazing game when it was released and with the addition of trophies and updated graphics in Rayman 3 HD, Ubisoft shows that it is equally amazing today, nine years later.

    Rayman 3 HD is a fine restatement of a very good platform that could no doubt be enjoyed by the younger players. Unfortunately the little flaws of the original were not corrected, but overall it's a very good HD edition.

    Those wanting a burst of nostalgia will love this but it's a bit too old to grab most modern gamers. [Issue#217, p.81]

    Rayman 3 is very fun to play even after eight years. Sadly Ubisoft didn't change much of the game except the graphics. There are numerous bugs that bother the game and the camera movement isn't working well either. Besides that it's a very good downloadable title.

    Despite some of its flaws, with the addition of trophies and updated graphics, Rayman 3 HD remains a good game some nine years after its original release.

    Despite the game's age and thanks to the graphical update, the colorful environments still look beautiful, just don't expect any miracles from a game that's almost ten years old. The only thing that gets in the way of the fun you're having is the sometimes jittery camera. [May 2012, p.86]

    This quirky platforming exercise raises man smiles. [May 2012, p.116]

    It's a shame that Rayman 3 HD is little more than an upscale of its initial release; it features the same models and the same wayward camera, which reduces its appeal when compared to more modern platformers. However, it still has bags of imagination and these flaws don't entirely diminish its appeal, only dent it. Rayman 3 HD is still a great platformer – it's just one that's showing its age.

    Its set in a bizarre world, with a straightforward story, quirky humor, and - some might say - it's trying too hard to break the fourth wall, but I actually had fun playing Rayman 3 HD.

    The changes from the series' traditions and the usual gameplay design may put off some, but fans of the Super Mario 64 era of platformers should very much like Rayman 3's gameplay experience. Ubisoft did a solid job of handling the game technically and brightening up the visuals for the high-definition era as well.

    The dialogue and voice acting is also well done, though can get repetitive. What lets the game down is the camera, which is a big problem as it can hinder progress and leave you frustrated.

    The textures are cleaner, the animation's smooth, and the humor remains, but gameplay is still rooted in 2003.

    Rayman 3 HD suffers from an obvious aging. Nevertheless it remains a fun and enjoyable platform. Especially recommended for those who did not played it in 2003.

    Awful camera angles, awkward controls and a fair few glitches are still present. [June 2012, p.81]

    This is the weak link in the main Rayman series. It's fine, but there's nothing remarkable about it.
