We speak to gaming legend Michel Ancel about Rayman's latest adventure.
Seems Awesome.. still remember the the Rayman i played in my Nokia N-Gage and i loved it.. i hope my experience will be same for this game too.. Lookng forward for this game.. wish they could release it in PC as i dotn own either XBOX360 or PS3 but yea planning to get PS3 but then PC would be awesome.. xD
I remember playing Ray-Man when I was younger. It looks cool. I think my 5-year old son may become a new fan too!
looks good but i hope the whole game isn't that fast paced i liked slowing down and trying to find the caged guys in the original
not on PC?! ooohhhhhh :( why.. just why!!! x_X maybe cause it's hard to share a pc with the guys on the living room jeje fun game thought
I like the idea of an indie outlook of complete development freedom, and it's interesting that for once a major publisher is working with this kind of idealism. I think this can only be a good thing, since you're getting the innovation of free ideas, but the funding of big budget publishers. I hope more publishers will take the plunge with this outlook.
This is going to be one of those games that is considered Art. I LOVE the fact that its 2D again. Love ALL the games, but definitely 2D was most memorable.
Really liking the art direction and in 1080P it's going to look pretty sharp. It's been quite a while since I've played a Rayman game and I can't wait for this one. We need more games created my Michel Ancel, like say.. Beyond Good & Evil 2 :-).
I will take beautifully polished 2D graphics any day over half-assed 3D. You know the graphics I am talking about, where the characters are made out of clunky, jagged, low detail 3D rendered shapes running on a 2D plane. Looking forward to this one.
Just because it's not in 3D doesn't mean it's going to be bad. Why does a game have to be limited to a certain format? Going 3D certainly didn't help Sonic very much. Mega Man works better in a 2D setting. Then you've got the downloadable games like Shank and Super Meat Boy which greatly utilizes and embraces the format. Personally, I think this looks like a hoot and can't wait to check it out.
This game looks great. I don't see why this being 2D discourages people from looking forward to it/wanting it. Most of the games I have had noteworthy experiences with were 2D games... I guess living through the SNES and Genesis days just makes me appreciate 2D more than those that grew up with the PS1/N64/Dreamcast, or perhaps even the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox. There are still excellent 2D games coming out these days, though. Outland and Limbo were great fun and very engaging and compelling experiences from an artistic standpoint. Outside of downloadable games, the Wii has a good collection of 2D (and I use that term somewhat loosely) games :?. 2D's simplicity grants a very exact nature to games in terms of control and gameplay. Anyway, this game's art is very unique and I've seen few games look this good while maintaining such a high level of detail. The gameplay looks extremely promising as well, and Ancel's view of how games should be developed and thought of only fuels my want for this game.
the artwork is absolutely fantastic, never played a rayman game but ill prob pick this up, the gameplay looks great too!
I would have preferred a 3D platformer like Rayman 2 and 3 but I'll take this any day over the Rabbids. It feels like this version of Rayman is more aggressive/edgy. I get a strong Ren & Stimpy vibe from Rayman and Globox. PS: Michel Ancel is French.
@DukeMagnum They also have a studio in France, where Rayman has, is, and will always be made so Joe295159 got it. Source: A more informed French Canadian
@DukeMagnum This is not a French Canadian accent. I'm 99.9% sure he's from France. French Canadians speak with a lower pitch than that. source: I'm a French Canadian.
i like Rayman 2 and 3 but this is bad move on psn and guess what im pass not getting this ubisoft dont how make rayman games anymore and this guy get fired for makeing it 2D pp dont want that so it will fall and next they made mistake turn back 3D i bet you so i pass im off rayman games im selling up the 2 games thx by ubisoft
for all those who don't know.. http://www.gamespot.com/n64/action/rayman2thegreatescape/review.html?tag=tabs%3Breviews
FUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!! I got so excited when I saw there was a Rayman preview.. Then I saw it was 2D... Rayman 2: The Great Escape was one of my favorite video games of all time and I still await the day that a worthy successor to one of the greatest 3D platformers will come out. Although this game looks solid, I really wish they they took the risk and went 3D with it.
Game looks awesome! being only a 17 year old gamer, rayman was one of my first 3D games on PS1...never completed it though it was too hard XD
Ubisoft has a Montreal studio... they speak French there. He is probably a French speaking Canadian. Anyway... I will be buying this. Never played a Rayman game before because frankly, when the first one game out platformers were dying or going 3D. As a dude who hadn't played a lot of 3D games at that point, I wasn't interested in anything that wasn't 3D. Now that I'm a older and have seen my share of 3D, I can better appreciate the 2D gameplay, in both its precision and simplicity.
Is he South African, or European? That accent sounds familiar... Anyway, definitely looking forward to this. The art looks awesome.
Dabbled in a rayman game when my nephew had one never really found it fun so I'm going to pass on this one.
