    I was looking around at Circuit City today, and they have this big bin for alot of old PSX games and DC games, I found Rayman 2 for DC for 19.99, new sealed. I had the game a long time ago and I wanted it again, but I was reluctant since you can get some PS2 games for 20 bucks, but I thought I'd get it anyway. They had Chu Chu rocket for 7.95, and alot of other things too. Blaster Master for PSX for 8 bucks. Anyway, I went over to check out with Rayman and it was marked wrong!! It was only 9.99!! So I got it for 10 and some change. A new sealed version. I've seen them on ebay and EB used for like 20-30 bucks. So I think I got a pretty good deal, I'm looking foreward to playing it. Is the PS2 version any good?

    The PS2 version isn't as good as the DC version, but any version of Rayman 2 is better than 99% of the other games on the market. Check it out with a VGA box sometime.

    Where'd all those butterflies go in the first level on the PS2? Too many polygons, I guess. The DC has no problem with it.

    And the Dreamcast version runs in 480p.

    I still haven't seen a PS2 (yes, I own one) platform or fighting game that can show up DC Rayman 2 and Soul Calibur on the DC.

    Rayman 2 is one of my few treasured DC games. Unfortunately, it was WAY too short. I beat it in 3 days (granted, I stayed up extremely late and started playing early).

    Morgan, your prolific videogaming exploits are well-known; [​IMG] however, I think for less persistent and/or skilled players it's the perfect length.

    I played it through and won the game on my N64, and now I'm going through a second time and having just as much fun on the DC. This game can be played over and over again. I was actually pleasantly surprised at the variety and quantity of levels.

    Yes, Joseph, the PS2 version used some terrible english voices for the characters. A poorer version all-around.
