Only you can find out! You are currently playing Rayman 2: The Great Escape game for free on Arcade Spot. Overview Rayman 2: The Great Escape is a 3D platformer that was developed by and first released in 1999. To this day it stands as one of my all-time favourite games. It updated many of the graphics, replacing any 2D models with 3D renders, and redistributed the 1,000 lums throughout the game including moving the hidden 1,000th lum out in the open.
The intro of the game felt a lot more dramatic, and the world map was something I dug a lot more than the Dreamcast version's Crash Bandicoot 1-esque island map. Responsible for introducing the player to various game mechanics and items, Murfy clearly is an important ally for those new to the game. Dreamcast is just a plain general enhancement from the original versions, looks the best of all versions, and runs at 60fps constant.

The Dreamcast version is the best, it has more content exclusive mini-games and has improved graphics 2D sprites being replaces by 3D models, etc. It looks great, with good colours, good framerate, and hardly any fog.
While I personally find the Dreamcast version to the be the definitive format, the game has been ported so often that you should have no excuse not to pick it up and play on something in your house. While I'm kinda crazy and would play most of these versions al after each other if you would only play one version I suggest Revolution as it gives you more content that's pretty good and the best visuals plus the original music and the made-up language. Alright let's get to it. You have no idea how much I love you right now. All the other versions are mainly based on the Dreamcast version if I'm not mistaken. It looks great in 1080p and use for 360 controller support. If you enjoyed playing the game, give it a thumbs up.
