  1. If the difficulty was lowered and Battle mode was more revised, Rayman Arena could have been a much greater game.
  2. A shoddy port of an otherwise average game.
  3. Rayman as an arcade racer/shooter is just not fun – and this interpretation is almost completely void of inspiration and innovation.

    For some insane reason, the developers decided that you have to insert both discs in sequence every time the game boots... It's just completely preposterous. [Feb 2003, p.96]

    My boys love this game. To watch them race and enjoy it makes the game worth every penny. Putting in both discs is annoying but so what.

    This game (which I've played as Rayman M) is just awesome.
    It's really fun, and I keep coming back to it every year or so.

    I might not like it like Rayman 2 Rayman 3, but it's still amazing and I usually don't even like this sort of games but here the gameplay's just so fun, the graphics are cool, seeing the loved characters from Rayman 2 come back is really cool... And also the new ones (Razorwife xD).
    And the soundtrack? Hell yeah. Definitely lives up to those of Rayman 2 and Rayman 3 (which have some of my favourite game soundtracks ever).
    Highly recommended.

    Seems Ubisoft tried to make an interesting cut of racing with Rayman. The result isn't perfect (and perhaps that's also why this game is not completely compatible with modern systems), but it's an OK racingarcade title, which is certainly ok as a time filler and some short gaming sessions, especially if you're a fan of the series (Yes, even close to 20 years after release - assuming you manage to make it run properly on you computer)
