Rayman 2: The Great Escape
Reviewed by Ty Massei
Graphics: 7 out of 10
Gameplay: 7 out of 10
Sounds: 5 out of 10
Hardness factor: 5 out of 10
Overall factor: 6 out of 10
Graphics: Graphics are okay, but there is nothing spectacular about
them. Things look pretty plain (dark and dreary usually), and uninteresting.
Plain and uninteresting seems to be the theme of this game however.
Sound: Sound is a little too boring. If you play the game with your TV on
mute, you'd never know anything was missing.
Gameplay: A 3D game that's a lot like banjo-kazooie. You play as a character
named Rayman who has no arms or legs, and you must find fairies in a level.
You can do some interesting moves with Rayman, but you must earn them
first, so right away the game gets uninteresting. Bosses are interesting,
as are some of the 'racing' parts. Some parts of the game can be fun, but
you'll find yourself waiting for them.
Hardness factor: Not really hard at all. Sometimes Rayman's lack of
flexibility will cause you to get harmed, fall off of a cliff, and so on,
but it's usually not that big of a problem.
Overall: 6 out of 10. Droll graphics, boring sound, but the gameplay, at
times, saves the game. You may have fun with this game for a little
while, but don't expect to play this game over and over if you buy it.
