    No Wii love?

    Come on Ubisoft, you give only shitty shovelware to the Wii, and the PS3 and 360 gets Rayman 3?

    I mean? Why? What do you have against Wii owners?

    That wasn't my point..

    My point was, the Wii gets shit from Ubisoft, while 360 and PS3 get far better titles, such as this, from Ubi.

    won't matter much but if you have the gamecube version of rayman 3, wii owners are ready to play already, just without the hd glory and that

    Oh hey, remember that one highly rated multiplatform rayman that made it to the wii? It came out like an entire week ago, but it looks like this:

    Ubisoft really hates the wii, eh? :P

    So now they're moving on from milking Rayman 2 to milking Rayman 3? Hopefully once they're done with this one we can finally get a new 3D Rayman platformer.

    Rayman 3 was pretty great though, much better than 2.

    Some people get on the net just to find things to complain about - and if they don't, they'll invent something...

    Well I'm sure if the Wii hadn't had such a crappy online service and space restrictions they may have considered a none HD release on WiiWare. Ubisoft aren't releasing this as a retail, its digital only. If you want it, you can buy the Gamecube version for very little or you can load it up on the Gamecube back up loader. This way you can still get a good version rather than the potential crap port that Ubisoft does with its old games.

    Now its my time to bitch about the "no PC love" which stops me from bitching about the poor quality HD releases Ubisoft have done so far that made the games look worse than their PS2/GC/Xbox counterparts.

    Nice, I absolutely love Rayman 2&3. That`s also why I prefer 3D Rayman games, even though I love the 2D ones as well. Hopefully these re-releases will cause developers to start develope some more 3D plattformer again. I kinda miss them...

    Also I think these last gen games somehow look better in blurry SD then in HD!

    Damn you Ubisoft.
    Go make a NEW Rayman game already.
    HD Makeover? Pffft..
    More like a half-arsed attempt at a makeover. (See Rayman 3D for further details)

    There was a Rayman 3? I mean, I remember the second one (I played the crap out of it on the N64 but didn't have a memory card, so I played through the beginning a lot) and the hooplah over the rabids, but this went under my radar.

    I'm not sure if this is really a necessary port, but whatever.


    They just did.

    Ubisoft makes poop in general. Even more so on the wii than others. I’d like to see them publish Girls Slumber Party on the PS3 and see how that would sell. Rayman Origins wasn’t going to be on the wii, since it was going to be a DD only. Then again, I’ve been disappointed by a lot of devs/pubs with the wii & PC games, so it is no surprise they didn’t make it for the wii (or PC). I believe there is also a Rayman 3 game for the PC too.

    I was thinking about picking it up, but I heard Rayman 3 is really short. Well, on the plus side, it isn’t Rayman 2 HD.
