Product Description Review

The armless and legless Rayman was always the most surreal video games character out there; Mario and his pals might be a peculiar bunch but the world that Rayman lives in makes the Mushroom Kingdom look like Slough. And as Rayman 3 begins our hero is rudely awoken to find out his hands have been stolen, which leaves him in the peculiar position of being just a pair of feet with a torso and head floating weirdly above them.

The errant body parts are quickly recovered, though, as you discover the evil André's plot to take control of the heart of the world, or something. Rayman 3 is at heart a fairly traditional platformer, albeit one with a stronger emphasis on combat, thanks to a well-implemented targeting system. The fact that Rayman's hairdo works like a helicopter allows you to avoid otherwise fatal falls relatively easily (a bit like Mario's backpack) and also ensures that the game is less frustrating than the norm.

The other main addition to the gameplay is five special costumes, which, for a short period of time, gives Rayman the use of a Ratchet & Clank-style swingshot or giant metal fists. Unoriginal it may be but thanks to the surreal graphics and atmosphere there's plenty here for everyone to enjoy, whether they liked the other Rayman games or not. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE Platformer!!!! 1 Jun. 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Rayman 3 is the first PS2 game I have bought since the slightly disapointing Crash Bandicoot:The Wrath of Cortex and it is BRILLIANT!!!
Following on from the hugely sucessful Rayman 2 for the PS1, Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc exceeds all fans high expectations. Slick graphics, Exceptional gameplay and wonderful player/character interactions, this game can be enjoyed by any age group.
Move over, Crash, Ubisoft have done it again. Rayman 3 kicks butt!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cartoonie game I've played for a while 28 Sept. 2003
Format:Video Game
This really is the best cartoonie platform game I've played for a long while. The graphics are bold, smooth and clear even on our 32" widescreen TV. Talking of which the game is optimised for widescreen and the sound is perfect through my dolby 5.1 system. The game play is good as the game teaches you how to play as you go along (saves you reading the instructions!). The bonus games are great too. As you play and gain points collecting crystals you unlock bonus (mini) games. They are quality mini games too like the older 2d version of rayman and games like tennis. You can play these mini games at any point and not lose where you are on the main game as it saves your progress on your memory card. The saves and loads are quick and hardly noticable. An alround great game something for everyone and you learn as you go along - so it obviously gets harder as you go - but this just keeps you interested and coming back for more. If you like platformer / puzzle type games this is for you and you wont be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Many Memories 21 April 2012
By Will
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of the many games I bought for a recently purchased PS2 for some good nostalgic gaming. It's a fun game but can prove to be a bit boring sometimes. Good overall though. I remember playing this game back in the old days... Despite it being a bit tedious and difficult at times, this game is amazing with good visuals for its time, funny cutscenes, fun gameplay and an interesting and large world.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game is a great one ! 6 Aug. 2009

The game is still as good as the first one what my daughter played on PS1. She says it has supercool stuff to help Rayman defeat the Hoodlums, different worlds become uncovered aswell as new creatures such as Mawpaws, Squabs and a lot more. The game involves precision where needed to defeat the Hoodlums and claim victorious. She also said that the game was a great one to play with it's great graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect. 13 Jan. 2012
By Mogwai
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
All of the key ingredients are involved in this game. It's everything that a platformer should be however the camera is sometimes annoying and I personally dislike the voice acting. There's also a rather annoying lip synch problem that is really bad if, like me, you suffer from OCD. But overall this is a good game that is well worth your time and money.
