    What went right with Rayman 3? What went completely wrong with PAC-MAN World 3?

      different dev team from pac-man world 2 and the fact that they just repurpose a different game instead of properly making a true pac-man world 3

      I remember playing this after playing World 2. I did not like it as much it was not that great but it had a style to it. I liked it enough to want to play it again though.

    Rayman 3 was quite disappointing after 2.

      It definitely lacked Michel Ancel's vision but I think Rayman 3 had much cooler environments and moods.

    I won't lie: in recent years I've actually gotten most (but not all) dream projects I've waited for since I was a kid.
    There is only one large projects that remains that I still care for.
    Rayman 4.
    Or, rather, a true sequel to Rayman 2.
    And I know I will never get it, and it hurts, I've been waiting for 25 years.
    But at least I still have Rayman 2 and it's still a masterpiece.

    I replayed this literally two days ago.
    It was fricking GREAT. I remember it being worse for some reason.
    I mean you can list the flaws all you want
    >it's unfocused, blah blah level design blah blah structure villain comes out nowhere blah blah turret sections the desert is a pain in the ass with the narems repeating their goddamn one liners blah blah
    but it's still fricking GREAT. And FUN.
    I had more fun with this than replaying 2. I'd say 2 is objectively the better game but I feel no shame saying that I enjoyed 3 more.

    What's the best way to play Rayman 2? Which one is easier to emulate?

    • 3 weeks ago

      I'm inclined to say Dreamcast because you don't have to deal with the tinkering required to get the PC version running on a modern computer.

        Can't you just pirate the GOG version?

        • 3 weeks ago

          Gog version doesn't have controller support and you have to install some shit to map your controller to keyboard presses. Also it's fricky on higher resolutions and widescreen and you have to waste time configuring nGlide and more shit. It's just a pain in the ass to set up.
          >t. I own the gog version

          They are both on pc, natively, on Good Old Games. The catch is that Rayman 2 has differences in every port they made, so there is no one version of Rayman 2. All ports are slightly divergent from each other.
          >N64: Midi soundtrack with new melodies by a different composer, Rayman doesn't have a full 3D hand
          >PS1: Ported by a different developer who shortened and shuffled around levels and added completely unique minigames including a different final boss. It has full english VO too.
          >PC: The N64 version with more polygons and the PS1 soundtrack, but N64 voices
          >Dreamcast: The level selection was completely overhauled, and level design and enemy placements changed.
          >PS2: Called Rayman "Revolution", is a completely modified version of all the previous ones where the level select has been replaced by a hub world with side-quests and NPCs. Levels have been redesigned again, and there's NEW english dubbing different from PS1.
          PC is the easiest and safest way to play, with GOG, but you arguably won't get the "Ultimate" Rayman 2 experience. Many think it's the Dreamcast port. I think it's Revolution. The N64 version has an incredibly cool intro music though: https://youtu.be/HwRWnFI2Juw?si=TqW3dSPd_4yPVdlD&t=12

          The biggest difference on Dreamcast is the isle of doors instead of the hall of doors. I don't recall enemy placement differences but I probably didn't notice.
          The PC version also has ingame lore descriptions of some ingame elements if you press one of the F keys, don't remember which one.
          It's neat but I'd recommend just emulating the Dreamcast version, works on a fricking calculator and it's 60fps 480p (but you obviously bump the internal resolution)

          That's just my opinion, anyone is free to pirate the gog version if they want.

            Maybe that's just the 3DS port then. The 3DS version is a port of the Dreamcast game and I'm sure the enemy placements were slightly altered. Nothing was exactly how I remembered it and I grew up with the PC port.

              As far as I know the 3DS version doesn't change "that much" from the Dreamcast version.
              Checking out the wiki the Dreamcast version does really tweak out some things and adds some areas and cutscenes compared to the PC version.

              Man this game has always been a mess to track down. I wish someone made a comprehensive video of all the changes.

                I'm solely speaking from experience when saying that the Dreamcast version is indeed quite different from PC other than just the Isle of Doors being made. The 3DS version should simply be a port of DC but the caveat is it's glitchy so a lot of sounds and visual effects get canceled out due to bugs. It doesn't even play the shooting sound when you fire, because of a glitch. But it was super playable and enjoyable, and I liked it in 3D.

                I'm speaking mostly from hazy memories. I've beaten the PSX, PC, DC version but apart from each other. PC as a kid, DC as a teenager, PSX as an adult. The rest I played but didn't beat.
                My memories are probably less reliable than yours.

        DS version is the N64 edition but the MIDI soundfont is fricked so it sounds garbage on DS, and controls like utter shit with the D-pad. It also runs like dogshit compared to any other port. I managed to beat it though.

    It was actually the first Rayman game I played. And I remember loving it so much. I also loves Jak 2 and to some degree 3 but I never played Jak and Dexter. But I did play the Dexter spinoff on the psp.

      Jak & Daxter is skippable but a nice and well made platformer for sure. Jak 2 is kino alongside Rayman 2, 3 and Ratchet 1~3.

        Nice, I thought I missed out on Jak and Dexter never came around playing it.
        Does anyone remember PlayStation sending out these demo disks which had videos from upcoming games? I still remember one featured DMC 2 and I wanted to play it so badly but my parents wouldn't allow it.

        Those "people" would be 8 years old back then. The people flaming everything new the week before it releases in 2023 are the people shouting in happiness while playing Rayman 3 on their PS2s and Gamecubes in 2003.

        No, i played Rayman 1, 2 and 3 as they were released and they were all a blast. Only had 1 friend at the time who played them and he also liked.
        I cant even understand what is the criticism people in this thread claim Rayman 3 received.

    the original rayman trilogy still remains one of the best video game trilogies ever in that each game has an entirely different feel to it and give you an entirely different experience but each one delivers so incredibly well on what it wants to accomplish that they can all be appreciated in their own way for it
    Although 2 is still my personal favorite and the closest I feel to calling a game a "masterpiece"
