Right well I'm almost 17 and I still think Rayman is one of the best games ever made. The "double-figure" thing is absolute garbage. Obviously doesn't appreciate the classics, which are and always will be.. the best games. A must buy game for any serious gamer!

Ive just turned 15 in May just gone, and in late August just managed to recover out of an old box an even older copy of Rayman. I waited until my parents left for work (Dont want them to catch me playing on this game and getting ridiculed for it =P ), popped in the disc, and switched on my Playstation.

Instantly we are bombared with bright, appealing and physically attractive colours (which to quote the box, said it used "65,000 colours") and a 2D RPG game playing style jumping platforms and punching enemys with a light-hearted, almost apologetic touch to it with a satisfying "CRACK!" to it.

So, you advance to next levels, and levels so... scarily unusual and oddly drawn only a artist who has take too much LSD could think of it. Brilliant nontheless though, and you encounter dangers which are incredibly surreal!

Well, thats all there is to it.

I first played this game when I was about 6 and Im now 18, and i've bought this game again to relive my childhood kinda, its challenging but enjoyable, and I remember getting really fuzzled about it and flinging the game controller across the room (i think most people did that) It may be old, but its fun! and as the phrase goes 'they don't make them like that anymore' hehee

You may remember Rayman as a simple platformer back in the day with all kinds of fancy upgrades for the protagonist and a plot that didn't get you too involved. You may also remember that the Playstation rushed to get the most 3D games out, but Rayman was casual and stayed behind happily. The game is a side-scroller as one might expect, unlike the sequels, and tells the story of how this regular Hero must stop Mister Dark from stealing all the Electoons.

Rayman is the standard walk, run and jump platformer with some nice twists. Rayman will be able to ride mosquitos, use his hair as a helicopter, learn all kinds of punching moves and more! The levels are wonderfully designed and so are the creative enemies you'll face. The soundtrack is gorgeous and is one you simply can't ignore. To hear it once more is to hear the sweet sound of nostalgia.

If this game has one defining flaw though it's its difficulty, and boy is it high. This game is merciless on pitfalls, enemy strengths and the infamous knockback upon hit escapade we've all experienced from Castlevania. Plus, lives are scarce and health is the same. If you're an adult, get used to not being as agile as you were before.

A great game despite the frustration, this is without a doubt something that should be on your shelf!

I played this game years and years ago and I am now 21 and still love the attentive game playing, the 2D styling and the annoyingly addictiveness of it all.

Similar to a Crash Bandicoot format you work yourself through various styled environments including jungles, a musical sky and boulder filled mountains. The object is to find 6 cages on each section and fight and defeat enemies.

There are many levels and frequent boss levels which, even at my age, can be reasonably difficult. Especially the rock mountain one.

But the pure joy of this game and its ever alternating universe is the reason there is now a franchise of Rayman games. Jumping on disappearing clouds, using hair to fly, getting powers off a fairy and grabbing floating pink rings are some of the simple joys of what many have called a timeless classic.

Because of my love for this game I bought Hoodlum Havoc a few years ago which is a 3D advancement but it is more confusing and have played it about twice briefly.

Nevertheless this is quite challenging at times but 100% fun packed novelty that should delight many gamers or neutrals getting started.

9/10

The only word I can think of to describe this game is wow. Just wow plain and simple.

I've owned this game since I was about five and am currently 16, yet I am still in love with it. The levels still give me difficult even after playing it many time (Especially the mountain levels). With boss levels that will blow your mind due to the creative designs and incredible colour work which to this day I still can't get over.

The music often leaves me feeling elated as the combinations of instruments they use is awe inspiring. Something which is not often found in modern day games.

I think the other Rayman games have degraded in quality, but this one remains a timeless classic. A must buy.

I got this game when I bought the first playstation for my son. For years we couldn't figure out how to get pass big momma. I would be up until 2 or 3 o'clock accumulating lives to defeat Big Momma. Eventually it was laid to rest for a few years. Suddenly we had an urge to play the game again only to find it wouldn't load so we bought another.. defeated big momma and finished the game. Now twenty years later I am ready to enjoy Rayman again but can't find the disc so I scoured the Internet for a replacing and it's like meeting a very dear friend again! So at 60 years old who says you can't play Rayman. Best game we ever had.

I would give this game 99/100 because as well as having really great graphics it's brilliant game play through the whole thing. I especially like level 4 Picture City because of all the different colours. I would recommend this to any Rayman fans. It's 2d madness in 1 small CD and I think it's the best Ray man game ever made. The classics are the best.

It's really hard to believe that this game is nineteen years old. The graphics look like a piece of art and it's incredibly imaginative in both the artistry and the general plot of the game. The controls still work great and are very smooth, it's one of the very few games from that era which have barely dated at all.

I'm 15 at the moment and I have Rayman 1-3 and Rayman Rush plus some others. I have to say, this is a truly amazing game, one of the best ever. It might be an old 2D PS1 game, but this doesn't stop it a bit.

For a start, it's a very colourful game (it says on the game it uses 65,000 colours!). The characters are beautifully done and the levels are great to navigate through. But best of all is the backgrounds: they are stunning to look at and make the whole thing much more enjoyable.

The best thing about this game is the music. It's some of the best ever composed and playing along to it is magical and enjoyable itself. It fits the mood of each level perfectly. It's really enticing and often, I want to get to a certain level just to hear the music!

Despite it's age, this game is a good challenge aswell. It's the best of all the Rayman games. I wish they would make more like this

Forget Burnout and FIFA and all the rest. If you want an amazing, classic game, this is right up your street!
