Op Gamers Central hebben ze een preview geplaatst van Rayman 2: The Great Escape. Rayman heeft het 2D wereldje na kritiek van de pers verlaten en gaat nu lekker verder in 3D. Hier de conclussie van de preview:
While all the reaction to the game so far seems to be positive, I am not convinced that gamers will be enthralled enough with the gameplay to turn it into a best seller. This is not necessarily UbiSoft's fault; it's just that I believe that the game's status as a platformer may limit its success to a degree. This is a shame because from what I've seen so far, Rayman 2 is a quality product, with top-notch visuals, diverse landscapes and a reasonably engrossing storyline. While the AI and the sound could have been improved, I think that overall Rayman 2 is made of all the right stuff. If Rayman 2 gets the type of recognition that it deserves, then I think that our limbless hero could make his way into many gamers' shopping baskets this Christmas.
