Best Rayman Games

Rayman is an action video game series developed by Ubisoft.

The Top Ten

1 Rayman 2: The Great Escape

One of the most underrated games of the 90s

This is undoubtedly the best game in the series. Funny, entertaining, plenty of story... Challenging enough to keep your interest.

I literally grew up on this game and even today believe it to be maybe just the best video game of all time. It didn't take itself to seriously while still keeping a heartfelt, dark tone to the game. Excellent level design, large variety of playstyles, a simple yet captivating plot, a handful of cool boss fights and one of best soundtracks ever made, with dozens of well orchestrated, memorable tunes interchanging in every level. As much as I am entertained by the video games of today, whenever I return to Rayman 2: The Great Escape I am always pleasantly surprised by its lasting greatness and reminded of how well old games can entertain us through the limitations of the time it was made. A masterpiece.

This is not only the best Rayman game, but in my opinion this is the best game ever! I played this game a few years ago and I LOVED it! It's just the magical world, the music, the characters, the atmosphere. I loved every second of this game, so people. Play it!

(I played this when I was six years old, so I don't know if I would enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it ten years ago but it's really a good game! )

2 Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc

One if the best games ever - ryandpo16

The best rayman ever! - ryandpo16

The day I found out this game existed was the best day of my life. I was 6, and I loved this game with all my heart. Still play it today and I'm 18

A game I got before New Super Mario Bros came to my life.

3 Rayman Legends

A huge amount of content: Several worlds with differing themes, a VERY large number of levels from Rayman: Origins, musical rhythm stages, challenge stages to unlock new characters, and a timed challenge stage for each of the main world stages, as well as lots of skins to unlock, daily and weekly challenges, and a small competitive local multiplayer game. The soundtrack to this game is one of the best I've ever heard. The design of the levels is top notch, with fluid and fun gameplay. There's always something new, and something to look forward to in this game. It's quick and easy to get into, but pushes players into striving for the best they can do. This game really is a Legend.

Damn near perfect. If it was more challenging, it would be perfect. Still a masterpiece either way.

Rayman Legends is the best of the best! Should be recommended for everyone because this is a really simple and relaxing-ish game! 10/10

Yeah. Even though there is some problem

The giant toad is easier than the dragon

4 Rayman Origins

Just plain fun

Just play it if you haven't.

Well my favourite character GLOBOX comes in

This game brought the classic Rayman back and in beautiful 2D, hand drawn graphics. This game is the winner because, it was challenging, had plenty of unlockables, 4-player modes, and was an overall masterpiece in regards to the gameplay and music. I have played all the other "regular" Rayman games, and this one takes the cake.

5 Rayman

The OG Rayman, this is where it all started

Easily the best rayman game that has been produced. I have played all the rayman games from when I was six years old. The reason this is the best game in the series (and all time! ) was the challenge and difficulty. Bosses were great, music was great, levels were brilliant and diverse, not just the same like every other game! Everything about it was great. Definitely recommend playing this!

I received rayman 1 as a gift when I was 5 years old and it took me around 2 years to complete just using sheer persistency. I now look back at this game and realise there is an essence of magic about this game, the art and music were beautiful and complemented the gameplay perfectly. Compared to the other raymans, this one was slightly more challenging and felt rewarding to complete. Definitely a game I could play over and over every couple of years.

For me this is second best Rayman game, just after Hoodlum Havoc. Probably hardest Rayman game since you have to get all cages so you get to sixth world and in this game they are very well hidden. One of the best of 2D platformers released in 90's

6 Rayman Raving Rabbids

I prefer the original series before the raving rabbids ones, but these are OK - dragon13304

It’s super fun! Would recommend to anyone who likes minigames and Rayman!

This game, although not a true Rayman game, is an amazing mini game collection and for what it is, this game pretty $%^$ good.

7 Rayman Arena

I still remember this game, it was really fun to play! It really was an awesome game, me and my brothers would always play this game when we got a chance. I loved racing in this gaming, even though you had to make it by foot The characters were pretty awesome too :D - Globox

Great have this game myself

8 Rayman M

Arguably my favourite multiplayer game of all time, nothing quite beats your friend squealing as the sticky bomb counts down to zero! Probably wouldn't feel as awesome compared to modern day multiplayer games, but was definitely a classic!

It is. Not the best rayman game ever but it is pretty badass and way better than all the rabid games

Its a great game

Uhmmm... People, Rayman M and Arena is the exact same game.
It is know in america as Arena, because Ubisoft would�'t have the esrb to mistake the M for Mature, so they change it to Arena.
Other then that, M and Arena is the same game, and it is really fun

9 Rayman Raving Rabbids 2

It's just... So... Generally... Fun

10 Rayman 3 (GBA)

Fantastic and unique game with a similar style to Rayman 2, though made to 2D in a fantastic and original way

Criminally underrated 2D platformer. Well-made levels, tight controls, secrets to find, cool bosses, and the second truly original 2D Rayman game.

The Contenders

11 Rayman Golf

Rayman Golf is better than Mario Golf for sure!

12 Rayman 3D

It's actually Rayman 2 but on a portable device! Can it be any better?

13 Rayman DS

Reale fun, exelent controles. It even gives you a joi stick on the touch screen.
