About Rayman :
Rayman has become Ubi Soft’s mascot throughout the world, from the United States to China. This surprising character, created by Michel Ancel, is now limbering up to put his skills to the test in a third adventure. But, first of all, let’s remind ourselves of how he saw the light of day.
Rayman was born in 1994 from the sketches of Michel Ancel – a young graphic designer whom no-one had then heard of, with a passion for Russian, Chinese and Celtic fairy tales. Ubi Soft decided to give the character a chance by developing his first adventure, throwing everything they’d got into the project. Thus began the Rayman adventure!
The first warning shot across the bows. Rayman was released on the new PlayStation console in 1995 and was an instant runaway success. For the first time, a video game publisher in the West was offering a serious alternative to the famous Japanese characters! Rayman – the legless, armless hero, with his big, mischievous eyes – could perform all kinds of increasingly aerial movements. He had get-up-and-go and a great sense of humour. He could run, jump, shoot his fist through space, or use his hair like helicopter rotor blades, making it spin round to take flight. In this first adventure, Rayman confronted the dreaded Mister Dark and succeeded in restoring order to his devastated world.
The sparkling colors, the variety of the music (unmatched in quality at the time) and Rayman’s maneuverability soon made the game a mega-hit. And, thanks to his dismembered appearance, Rayman stood out from the rank and file of other game characters! The fan sites boomed, and the cool, unflappable hero had become a star! Meanwhile, Rayman’s second great adventure was at last under way.

Raman 2 The Great Escape is a 3D game where you will have to finish up your levels by swinging, jumping, sliding and shooting your enemies. There are many levels which keeps you curious about the game. The game is best for kid due to its childish gameplay. There are some moves like jumping and then shooting the balls of energy which lets the player to enjoy. There is quiet a plenty of fight in the game where it adds up some tension.
The movement in the game is controlled by tapping icons. The controls are tried to indulge properly so that you can enjoy it. Somewhere there is needs of manual adjustment like moving or swiping from left to right. The only thing which annoys is the screen ratio. That means some area in the screen are not seen. They get hidden and for that you have to move from all corners to view those parts. Some time enemies and tombs goes off-screen.
The style of decoration, the hero himself, the characters, the gameplay … frankly nothing has changed, which is not displeasing, quite the contrary. Indeed, this game is a delight in every way: graphics, we think from a fairy tale, is absolutely charming, the characters met, enemies or friends, are all a refreshing exotic, the sounds are a delight, and the music, composed specially for the game are much more only bring a simple background atmosphere, they contribute greatly to the feeling of fullness that exists in Rayman 2.
The little guy who waddles on screen has kept all his dexterity. His magic hand, he twirls before catapulting forcefully before him, is still effective, his hair always used helicopters to stay longer in the air and jumps and hangs elegantly as always … These actions are performed without a hitch, as the gameplay and the gameplay have been worked and to the extreme, so probably to please everyone. Moreover, Rayman 2 is intended to pleasure younger, the shading is simplistic (to save his friends), and the style of the characters in the game, humor, highly visual, fully corresponds to the target. However, the quality of being magnificent achievement, one can only take a liking to stagger in this universe infinitely rich, and whatever our age!
The view used is not completely ideal, since it tends to swirl around a bit of hero. Fortunately, the buttons allow you to adjust the case to his taste, but better management of the corners had not been luxurious. Apart from that, in Rayman 2, it wanders in a score of world we encounter zany characters also attached by or contemptuous, there is water skiing, air combat, racing in leg missiles etc.. short, you never get bored one second.
