Rayman 2 is the first 3D entry in the series and has seen a variety of ports, however, the gameplay remains the same (not counting the GBC version). Now one platforms in a 3D plane, and movement is slick and intuitive. While Rayman doesn't have many movement options like Mario 64, he does have a double jump and the ability to hover. Rayman fights by strafing and shooting out energy balls. As one continues through the game one gets different power-ups to these energy balls making gameplay not go stale. One also has to collect Lums in order to advance in the game. The game has good level variety and has mini-games as well to mix-up the gameplay a bit.
