  1. You've got to admit Rayman is incredibly cool, but no measure of awesomeness can cover up troublesome controls, average visuals and mediocre gameplay.
  2. With a little more foresight into the viewpoint, things could have become infinitely more playable and turned out to be a far more rewarding experience.
  3. Certainly, the lack of interactive environmental features combined with the expansiveness of the game's levels could lead to burnout after a while.

    While replaying completed levels to raise scores and collect more lums will unlock secret areas, the core simplicity of the gameplay may not tempt many players to romp again where they have romped before.

    Pacing and unlockables are top-notch. [May 2005, p.92]

    A competent game, but it's also thoroughly forgettable. [May 2005, p.73]
  7. 40
    Simply put, it has no hook. It offers nothing of interest to an even semi-seasoned gamer. It's as dull a foray into platforming as you'll find on your local store's shelves, and another unfortunate example of this license being diluted.

    Although a platform game with a bird's eye view is very innovative, the view is tilted, which means you will not be able to distinguish the height when jumping and you will die hundreds of times. The way to attack is very imprecise and killing enemies is a matter of luck and mashing buttons. It's impressive that I did not give it less rating considering that it is almost UNPLAYABLE, maybe because of how big the map is and to be able to see it. That is pretty good.
