    In short, they say that it's a great port, of a great game from 10 years ago. It seems to me they can't point out anything truly bad/wrong about it at all, except for the fact it's the same decade old Rayman 2 for Dreamcast.
    So in short, it's a very good port of the Dreamcast version, if you've never played Rayman 2 or are a Rayman 2 fan, this is an excelent launch title to get.

    This isn't actually the first review. There were several reviews out before this...

    Old-fashioned doesn't mean bad.

    Should it be a 7 or 8?

    Link it then.
    I have been searching everywhere for the past 5 days for a critic review of it, couldn't find a single one until now.

    @KingVamp - IMO yes, they seem to not like retro games. Still, it confirms it's a very good and true-to-original port of the dreamcast version.

    How?
    There was an embargo on reviews of ubisoft's games until release date.

    I'm relieved...

    I bought the game, and heard it sucked (Port wise). I played the original a little, and it's a great game. I just want to play through the entire game, so as long as it was ported well, I'm satisfied.

    Ditto. Since it's a very good and true to original port of Dreamcast's version, but with sterescopic 3D, I'm glad I stuck with this as my only launch title game choice.

    Although to be honest NGamer kind of rates stuff too high. Plus, there were a lot of tweets talking about it and how it was.

    Apparently there's this freezing/initial save problem with the game but that's only happened to one person so for AFAIK

    Yea, that's NGamer, the person that reviewed it admits he hates Rayman, which invalidates his review because he's biased against it.

    Also, I wouldn't call any of those real reviews until they say more than a couple of sentences about them.

    EDIT: As someone on their own forums pointed out:

    Hmm...

    I'm surprised that Ubisoft would have the balls to port a game and say that's it's "something new". If they just went outright and said "This is a port with 3D", I'm sure the game would have gotten a higher score. The screenshots look very nice.

    10 years ago? It has to be new to someone. [​IMG]

    I was a bit skeptical of this game because of how Rayman DS ended up (ugh), but I bought it alongside Super Street Fighter IV 3D earlier when I went to midnight launch in UK.

    ...Bloody hell.

    All I can say is the 3D in Rayman is amazing. And the game is great. Seriously. If you liked Rayman 2, you will love this.

    Is it the same as the N64 one?

    I had that, but sold it years ago.

    It's based on the Dreamcast version, not the N64 one, but yeah the N64 Rayman and the DC one were essentially the same game. Updated graphics, a bit less silly difficulty curve, amongst other things.

    Once again, I am so relieved. I bought it on Tuesday (3DS doesn't come out until Sunday), and opened it because of hype. I then thought I made a big mistake because I started seeing everyone saying it was a terrible port (Which doesn't surprise me because it's Ubisoft...).

    I like rayman games, if its a port from the dreamcast version (which i also have) then it should be good. Nintendo should make a port of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver in 3D.

    Why do you think Ubisoft would have made a bad port?

    I think this and PilotWings will be my 2 launch titles. Not that I have the funds to buy either just yet...

    Just waiting on my free $50 GameStop gift card from u.talk.back to arrive.

    picked it up with my 3ds enjoying it so far but I'm a fan of rayman, havent had the 3d effects on much I seem to find it harder when they are on.
