I finally got a new Dreamcast after having my second one die about six months ago. I picked up Rayman 2 for pretty cheap after seeing the amazing reviews that it got when it was new (I think IGN gave the DC version a 9.6). From what I have played, I think that, while it is not a timeless classic, it certainly holds up pretty well. First of all, the game runs at a flawless 60 frames per second, which goes a long way towards tolerating an older game, it also helps separate the Dreamcast version from the ones on older systems, like the N64, which does not run as smoothly. The visuals are actually quite good: the game uses fairly simplistic designs and 2D foliage and background art, but it stands up pretty well, even when compared to Gamecube or PS2 games. The gameplay is very solid as well: the controls are extremely tight, and the jumping feels natural and smooth; however, there is some problems with a few of the moves, but nothing that is really detrimental to the overall experience. Overall, I'm having fun, and if I can get a few more hours out of this title, I think I can safely call this money well spent.
