The Rayman 3D games weren’t bad, but for me the 2D Rayman games are the best.
YES! Completely agree. REALLY couldn’t get into the 3D rayman games but the 2D ones are incredible and have an unique charm, a “je ne sais quois”, if you will.
This is why it’s a crime I STILL haven’t played Rayman Origins :(
Excepting the GBA port which I loathed, I had never played a Rayman game before getting Rayman Origins when it went majorly on sale in the 3DS store… and I absolutely loved it. Comparing it with other versions later, it really is one of the perfect handheld platformers… so yeah, you’re missing out.
