  1. Rayman 3's most awesome attribute, as incredible as the movies, dialogue, and gameplay are, is a level of visual splendor that defies everything I've come to know about lighting effects in a video game. [Mar 2003, p.47]
  2. Ubi Soft gives their mascot the star treatment and it pays off in a game that captures the real fun of platform hopping, environmental puzzle solving, and boss character combat. Rayman 3 is a treat.
  3. It's the gameplay in Rayman 3, though, that really keeps you hooked. [Apr 2003, p.84]
  4. I didn't find this game particularly challenging but it's still loads of fun.
  5. The camera and the linear fashion of the levels didn’t make me a Rayman convert but I did have fun – especially with those drug-inspired transition sections. Far out, man!
  6. 70
    I hesitate to call it a nice try, because in some ways it didn't even really do that.
  7. Snide voice acting turns cutesy bit players Globox and Murfy into electronic annoyances, and Hoodlum Havoc revels in its lame humor. [Apr 2003, p.68]
