My Take on the Game
As a fan of the original Rayman game, this game truly brought be me back to the beginning. I was so impressed with not only the gameplay, but also with the storyline and graphics. The game was fun and gives you a lot of variety, especially with the fact that you can play as either Rayman or Globox. The levels are fast paced and you can always go back to do better the next time which was also a nice addition. The 3D action was fun as this was a new addition to the mix this time around and it was a fun addition. Overall, I was very impressed with the whole game and to be honest I had a hard time putting the game down even to let my own kids play!
