Review

Rayman is a side scrolling platformer released in 1995, and while the title character may not have any limbs, he certainly packs a punch. After the Crash Bandicoot series, I consider is my favourite Playstation One game.

Many sequels followed, but none live up to the original. Rayman 2: The Great Escape was ruined with 3D graphics, a style that was not abandoned until 2011 with the release of Rayman: Origins for the Nintendo Wii. Origins did just like the name suggests, took Rayman back to its 2D side-scrolling roots. However, it still falls short. The graphics may be cleaner, but they are flat, the action is far too fast paced, and the environments are far too 'loud'.

There is no beating Rayman one. The environments are so unique; different to any other games of a similar genre. There are worlds made of sweets, worlds made of musical instruments, even the obligatory jungle level is distinctive, as it look like a swamp rather than a traditional rain forest.

Rayman also has a unique range of abilities (relative to when it was made). He has powerful disembodied fists that go flying off to hit his enemies, he has stylish hair that helps him hover like a helicopter, and with the help of some blue elves, sometimes he can shrink to the size of a mouse.

Rayman is a very challenging video game, yet maintains the ability to entertain both hardcore and casual gamers at the same time. If you do get stuck, there are passwords you can look up online that you can use to unlock levels. This can be used as an alternative to a memory card, which is a feature I've never seen in any other game. It is great classic and can be downloaded for current Playstation consoles at Sony Entertainment Network.
