Rayman is a platformer with a difference. It may look all cutesy-pie, but it's one of the toughest, most innovative games around. The graphics are super, full of colour (around 65,000 of them, approximately) and unflinching attention to detail, and the 250 digitised sound effects complement the look wonderfully.
Gameplay is a joy, and with each power Rayman earns in his quest, new areas of the game - places you may have already visited but been unable to complete - are opened up, making for an incredibly long lifespan.
Still wowing audiences old and new, Rayman is an essential purchase for all PlayStation owners who want a long-lasting platform challenge. Rayman is a game that grows on you the more it is played.
