I CAN'T BELIVE IT'S BACK AND ON PS2!
I CAN'T BELIVE IT'S BACK!I remember i had and played it on nintendo 64 and played it for hours!(i still have it and rayman3 for ps2, but have a broken 64)Prety good graphics for its age.I actually forgot the story, but i do remember that you collect masks and give it to a guy on a stone and he adds it in the stone and i also remember that the little guys are fighting over the crown and who is king and(SPOILER ALERT DONT SEE END OF REVIEW IF YOU LIKE SUPRIZES)at the end they all agree that all of them could all be a king.
Personally, I believe that Rayman 2 is a good game, it gets pretty easy once you've gotten used to it. It tends to have the same comedic humor used in Rayman 3, especially the newly added cut scenes. If you have played this game on other systems such as the dreamcast , this one is probably the most difficult but each new boss makes the story much more entertaining.This game type of game that once you've beaten it, you will create a new file and play it all over again. If you have played this game on other platforms its good to take a look at this version of the game to see what they have changed. The graphics look updated and new, everything that was once 2d is now 3d which tends to cause a framerate drop from 60 to 30 sometimes. Aside from all of the game's natural glitches (goes for the other ones with some new glitches.) This is a great game. Instead of the gibberish they speak in the other ports of the game you can have them speak English, French and even back to the old gibberish language they used to speak known as the Raymanian language. If you have this game on the other systems, and you own a ps2, I would recommend that you would take the chance and get this game. It will bring back memories if you have ever played rayman 2 before. It would also be a good collectible for Rayman fans. The good side to this game is: -The graphics. Its the most major change in this game. It's almost as good as Rayman 3. -Level changes and removals. All levels in the previous versions of the game still exists, however a few of them have been removed and used as mini games. -This version of the game is loaded with mini-games including the ones that were already there. -The new music. It still has the same old Rayman 2 music, but with new music as well. It gives that Rayman 3 feeling while you're playing Rayman 2. -The use of the adventure field. It makes the game seem big. There are about 3 main fields if I'm not mistaken. The downsides to this game is: -The glitches. Its a 3d game, it happens. - Sound glitches, for example the helicopter sound can get stuck even after you're not flying anymore sadly this is solved by saving your game and just simply restarting, Another known problem is that the music can be over powering the voices. Fortunately the music problem can be solved very easily. Simply adjust the volume level in the game and if needed on the Television set as well. - The ability to skip cutscenes wasn't added in this game. Its a good game but sometimes that will slow you down. -Cages don't make you level up. You have to beat the mini-games. -For your first time the adventure fields can be a bit confusing.
Perfect Game! Solid 10!
I got this game along with a few others with my PS2. I was expecting Rayman 2 to be hard and frustrated, but I loved every single moment of it. If you are bored or have nothing do in the summer like me, get it and be entertained for hours. It had good music, gameplay, and controller functions were well made. Best part: Any age can play it! Its that easy. And don't forget, every gamer has their own preferred taste. Don't let the negative reviews alter your thoughts. Sometimes you gotta go with your gut!
if you love rayman as much as i do, dont get this.
this is ALMOST the worst rayman 2 remake (being the ds version) after you beat a stage nearly ALL MUSIC IS GONE! the need to buy power ups wastes time since you are practicaly forced to search every inch of the game so you can even make a scratch to the robot pirates, gameplay does feel smooth however. worth $2.99
