I really want to see a proper non-casual Rayman 4 with a plot of Mr.Dark, Razorbeard and Andre returning to seek revenge on Rayman with similar gameplay to 2 & 3. Too bad we'll only be getting 2D Rayman games if we even get anymore...
>>
The first three games are all amazing, 3 being my favorite. Origins/Legends look lame so I haven't bothered with them.

3 is my favourite 3D Rayman. Legends is my favourite 2D one.

Generally People say 2 is the best 3D one and for the best 2D one it's a toss between the first one and Origins.
>>
>>259194736
Good news for ya. There's a project called Rayman 1.5 : Revenge of the dark. Look it up and wait patiently a year or moar.
>>
I was a huge fan of Rayman when I was younger.

I was also autisticly mad about the fact that Rayman 2 was in 3D and didn't have the same feel as the first one, so I never got around to play it.

Was it even good?
>>
I loved first rayman, second rayman was even better and 3rd was very good imo. I'd like to see rayman 4 that is not another fucking 2D game. Maybe the fanmade one will be cool
>>
>>259194815

I liked origins personally, and I adore the first two games.

In legends they brought back a lot of the origins levels but neutered the difficulty, and the "reward" unlocks were stupid 8bit themed versions of music stages with filters over the screen so you literally can't see what the fuck is going on, was incredibly disappointing

compared to that origins is excellent
>>
>>259194952
It was good. Still holds up well to this day since 3D platforming hasn't really changed at all since then.

Give me Rayman 4 and keep it 3D.

I still play the ever living shit out of the original trilogy from time to time. Rayman 2 and 3 were actual proper PC ports. Though to my knowledge the "Raving Rabbids" shit was going to be R4, but due to time constraints they cancelled that and turned it into a mediocre party game. Sad. As for Origins and Legends they're pretty good but I liked the original three better.
>>
>>259194296
Rayman 1 & 2 are amazing games, some of the best in their genre, must-play's for everyone. 3 is pretty good. Origins and Legends don't quite match up to 1 & 2 but they're still very good, and they look beautiful and handle well.

Personally, I'm a little disappointed about the difficulty of Origins and Legends, it was too low, especially since the player has infinite lives.
>>
Rayman Legends and Rayman Origins are some of the best playing and best looking games. If you haven't played them, go play them like right fucking now.

>>259195767
I was genuinely excited for this when I first watched it. I ended up buying Raving Rabbids anyway but it didn't even work on my PC. Probably for the best.

Originally, the "Raving Rabbids" minigames were supposed to be a part of Rayman 4 (you know, like, minigames). But then a Wii was released, and Ubisoft was interested in scrapping the entire platformer part of Rayman 4 and make more minigames. Now I can't say for sure, but I think Ancel was mad, and in order to calm him, Ubisoft let him develop Beyond Good & Evil 2 (they didn't want to make another one because the first one's sales were not enough for Ubisoft).

I now have all the Rayman games thanks to a gog.com sale a while back and Legends being on sale last week.

I started Rayman Forever and holy fuck is this difficult. I thought it couldn't get worse than Band Land but Blue Mountain is kicking my ass.

I also started playing Legends, fun game that's a ton easier so far. Seems like I'd be better off waiting till I can play through the game in multiplayer though.

Anyway why is Forever so hard holy fuck.

Just passing by to show some love to Legends. It gets shafted too often just because it's "too easy" but it really has a lot of pros that outweight its cons by far.

One of the most charming and made-with-love 2D platformers of the recent years, along with its prequel and Kirby Epic Yarn.

I certainly hope anyone in this thread has played Beyond Good and Evil made by the same person. Because it's certainly onpar with Rayman 2 in nearly every way.

3 was my favorite. I first got it on PC but like most people posted already, couldn't get past the fucking knaaren. Scary shit that was. I played each game in order 1 - 2 - 3 and funny enough i enjoyed them in the reverse order 3 - 2 - 1.

I got rayman 3 on my gamecube and played the shit out of it. Finished it over 10 times. Rayman 2 is a close 2nd but only because it had less dialogue and voice overs. Can't believe i never figured out that billy west did the voice of murphy! I actuallly played rayman 2 on about 5 different consoles (n64, pc, playstation, ds, 3ds) and it never gets old.

I loved the general feel of adventure that the 3d rayman games offered and it just felt so immersive with those soundtracks too. Rayman 1 was ok but the platforms were dodgy, the jumping felt heavy and the difficulty got over the top at certain bits to the point where you can't progress without taking a hit from certain obstacles. I really wish there would be another 3d rayman game. Something about the colorful worlds and atmosphere just felt so fun to play in.

I wasn't phased at all by Cave of Bad Dreams, with the exception of the black fart/caterpillar parts obviously, I even didn't get scared by the slide/chase near the end, considering the jaws closing on you a neat as hell idea.

But the black caterpillars, fuck no. I asked my younger brother to pass the sections with them.
Thought I were less scared of some of them when I realized that some of them have yellow eyes instead of white and that the former don't chase after you, but move on predestined tracks.

Oh, and the bouncing eyes, too.
If I had to access to the cave of bad dreams master on the marsh I simply closed my eyes, spammed attack and spinned in a circle for around 10 seconds before proceeding.
>>
Even though Michel cancelled what could've been an awesome new title in the series, it seems the Rabbids apparently really worked out in Ubisofts favor, regardless of all the Rayman fans wanted to tear them apart, they've ended up having a bunch of sequels and spinoffs.

Rayman 3 is pretty cheap on XBL if you have a 360, likewise I'm sure it's on PC just as cheap somewhere. I got Rayman 1 and 2 off GOG, just know Rayman 1 is horribly butchered by GOG with a fucked up soundtrack.
>>
>>259204418
The Rayman 3 HD port was awful, I use to have it on PS3. Screwed up textures in the water, sometimes the game would freeze for no reason. No thanks. PC version of Rayman 3 is the best version.

As for Rayman 1 and 2 I'd rather buy an original copy as I hear the GoG versions of R1 and R2 were flawed.
>>
Tried to play Rayman 1 recently.
This game is so hard holy shit.
>>
Rayman 1-3 are fucking fantastic games

10/10 Soundtracks and they just give off such a magical fucking vibe I just dunno

3 was actually pretty funny too, Teensie dialogue was great
>>
>>259204579
You sure about that HD port? I beat it twice on my 360 and never encountered any issues. That being said maybe I wasn't paying much attention but it worked flawlessly and looked fine for me.
>>
>>259204694
I'm not sure if there is an actual difference between the PS3 and 360 version but I do remember it having issues. I've actually 100%ed and got all the trophies/achievements (Seriously the perfection trophy is ridiculously fucking broken), and I did encounter a lot of freezing and fucked up textures. The water was rainbow colored in the Land of the Livid Dead.

Rayman 1/Forever was FFFFFACKING BULLSHIT, but still pretty fun.
Never played much of 2, but I remember having a ton of fun with 3.
Though I wish they had kept the original story for Origins, it was still a great game.
Haven't played Legends, but it looks like just more of Origins with some sweet rhythm levels.

Every time I try, I quit at like the second last level. On Top of the World? Iron Hill? Something like that. Bigass temple and you ride the rocket thing.

Anyways, the one Lum cage I can never never figure out is the one in the fire mask dungeon. It's where you ride the plum down the huge lava flow, and at the end, you can turn around and look up and see the fucking cage on the ceiling with no possible way up there. What gives?
>>
>>259206495
I don't quite remember what level you're talking about but I'm gonna guess Sanctuary of Stone and Fire. The section where you ride down the lava flow on the plum (Ugh, fuck that part) I think you need to turn right while flowing down towards the exit to the area in which there will be a secret path leading to a cage.

It was so long, and I didn't get to play it long-term because of my asshole brother lending my shit to other people without my permission. Hated when he did that. But forbid I play his Dreamcast without asking him. I forgot about it altogether but I know I loved 3 and the little homage to 1 which confirmed he was a kid at the time.

And the Rabbids pissed me off, because I thought we'd get an adventure and not some minigame collection. And even worse when it succeeded. All the Rabbids shit that came out afterward. Even with Origins and Legends it's still not enough. 3D Rayman is dead forever. That concept art from Rayman 4 hit me hard. We were gonna get Rayman 1 back into the mix in 3D.

>>
>>259207243
How the fuck did you manage that?

Origins is a way smaller game.
>>
>>259207367
I figure that Legends was overall easier, especially because of the groups of Lums that you collect, rather than the individual. Plus, being more familiar with the game/engine meant I was speedrunning as soon as I dropped into Legends.

Worst level is the retro level with the beanstalk and classical music, because of the jump you have to make near the near with two rows of lums that is incredibly easy to fuck over your run if you're off by a bit. I wasted an hour on that

Also, if Mosquito was back, I would love to see the bosses of Rayman 1 make an appearance.

I played some Rayman 3 a few days ago. Still a silly game with a nice soundtrack and some surprisingly fun combat. Those funkyboard levels were always fun too. I think the main Rayman series (1-3, Origins, Legends) is one of the few series that has been consistently good since my childhood.

Is it wrong of me to say Rayman 3 may have the most solid controls of any 3D platformer ever? It just works so damn well.

There isn't really any platforming elements, it's more of Michel's take on trying to make his own Zelda, kind of. Just a huge blend of adventure/puzzle, but it totally has the magical feel of Rayman.

On Origins vs Legends I liked Legends better because while Origins was harder it was also a lot more annoying. You had to be extra careful and pick up every single little lum and at some point I just wasn't having fun.

Legends eased up on making me autistic and focused the challenge on moving quickly from point A to Point B.

That being said fuck the WiiU version for forcing me to be Murphy in single player. Boring and the Ai was stupid as all hell.
>>
>>259216473
I highly recommend just playing the PS1 version on an emulator instead, you had all the music, and better graphics. The R1 PC port was unfortunately back in the day of when PC ports were mostly shit.
>>
>>259216473
That was even a problem at the release of the game. My game had no sound effects and my friend's had no music.
Rayman Gold fixed it tho
>>
>>259216473
It's a bug. No idea how you would go about solving it.

When I first got the game, it was running perfectly on my potato, but last time I tried to play it I had no music either.
>>
>>259216835
It's a bug? I thought I read it wasn't included in the game because of memory constraints.
>>
>>259217474
Yes. I think it may something to do with it not recognizing newer sound cards.
Also, the game is a 2D platformer with pixel graphics distributed on a CD. There is no way it could have memory issues.

Also, what emulator are you using?
I can't imagine any PS1 game causing problems today.
>>
Rayman 2 and Rayman Origins are two of my favorite games ever.

Rayman and Rayman Forever are also good.

The "humor" in Rayman 3 is so bad I wanted to die playing it. No idea what they were trying to do with that game.

I plan on playing Rayman Legends soon but it kind of looks like gimmicky bullshit to me, I don't know...

If you like 2, chances are you'll like 3. To my understanding Ancel was barely involved in the development of 3 so be prepared for something different.

Does it run on modern systems? Guess I can try emulating it otherwise.

I ran 2 on 7 about a three years ago without a hitch. Got it for pre-ordering Origins. Haven't tried it on 8, but I haven't had any other compatibility issues yet.

Rayman 1 isn't really comparable to 2/3
Rayman 2 > Rayman 3
PS1 version is the best version

Rabbids is an unforgivable mistake from Ubisoft, it's stupid, but it just made me not want to try out the new games.

Of Rayman 2? Why do you say that?
>>
>>259232512
I probably went overboard there, but fuck me I had more fun on the Crow's Nest on the PS1 than I did on the N64
>>
>>259232973
What were the differences?
>>
>>259233071
N64 had the second segment as the flying around the ship redirecting the missiles and what not. PS1 was more like a first person space shooter.

It's not much, but it was bloody intense as a kid.

>>259232412
The first Raving Rabbids was decent though. Some mini games didn't work at all, did they test that shit?

At least the GBC version was ok and rayman 2 was made as another 2 port but 3 was out so they added hoodlums and just said the pirates were there too as part of the plot

Stop.
Origins was supposed to be a prequel to 1, when it still was a downloadable game.
Raving Rabbids was 4

Does it say "Rayman 4"
No. It says "Rayman FUCKING ORIGINS"

No. When I was younger, I expected a decent small thing that played well and wrapped up the story.

I got an isometric piece of shit.

No, the game has enemies from the first game and pirate ships from rayman 2. It has nothing to do with 3

You better be talking about Rayman 1 and not those shitty Origins.

Seriously, the platforming is weak and easy as hell, the boss battles can hardly even be called that, and the game is just about going fast and not even in a hard way to maintain, except the tricky treasure chases, but that isn't what Rayman is about.

Like just compare this shit.

Why is Michel Ancel so based?

I dont like the new Raymans.
Like, I welcomed their return to 2D and everything but something about it feels and looks off.

Playing a bit legends now and its also awfully easy.
Rhythm levels are cool though.

>>259240395
Rayman 1 is unplayable. You can't even fucking run until near the end of the game.

did he say when its getting released?

Yeah, let's forget about everything that's great about Origins/Legends and call it shit because it's easy.
>>
>>259241689
Only thing I can think of was the art direction and the nymphs.

Daaaamn, those nymphs.
>>
>>259242014
What about the controls? Or the OST? Those are pretty important.
>>
Rayman 1: 9/10 at the time, 8/10 now
Rayman 2: 9/10
Rayman 3: 10/10
Rayman Origins: 8/10
Rayman Legends: 9/10
Rayman M: 8,5/10
>>
I actually liked all of them. I also love the fact they always try something a bit different for every game, safe for Legends.

meant 3DS

>>259242864
PS2 for rayman 1 to 3
try to get gold for 1, revolution for 2 and any version of 3
>>
>>259242864
PC for sure, pref. with gamepad.
>>
>>259242325
Decent controls are expected of any game and while a game might have a great OST, that certainly can't be the determining factor of what makes a game great.

All that is on that wiki page is all we really know, and with a nickname like "The bringer of night" you probably won't be that good of a guy.
>>
>>259243879
Holy shit, I did not know that.

>>259244171
He doesn't actually seem that bad. His followers maybe but I see him more of a deistic god than an evil one.

anyone here ever 100% it? i always remember getting 100% for every zone was difficult as fuck because i always missed something

Reflux seemed also very proud and maybe a bit honorable (although not too much) and he gave some powers to Rayman after he defeated him. So maybe he just favors the strong?

By the way, if there are any speedrunners looking for games, Rayman 3 is an excellent speedgame, lots of glitches to exploit, still a lot of strats to be found and the times arent really optimised.
