Review
Rayman 3 - Hoodlum HavocWhen Globox (Raymans' good buddy) accidentally swallows the Lord of the Dark Lums, a fanatic army of trigger-happy Hoodlums wreaks total havoc to get their Lord back! Unfortunately Globix is now forced to live life with the evil Lum Chief bouncing around inside his belly! Rayman now needs to start an epic journey to purge the Dark Lum Lord from the manic Globox, search the lands for new powers, and do battle with hordes of Hoodlum soldiers and huge evil bosses.
Rayman along his journey through diverse worlds, must now fight huge transforming bosses and whole armies, with more than 20 different types of enemies, including the Hoodlums, Evil Dark Lums, and the savage Knaaren. Fortunately there are several scattered power-ups for Rayman to collect with brand-new abilities such as Shock Rockets, Heavy Metal Fists, and the Throttle Copter (a quick vertical boost pack for catching air). Power-ups do not apply only to increase Raymans' power but some will allow to perform certain abilities such as to swing over water or smash through obstacles that will then provide with other power-ups to open an earlier door at the beginning of the stage and so on. So, puzzles are plenty to discover and solve in order to proceed.
Rayman controls are fluid and easy to master, with responsive analog control and the return of his helicopter ears technique. An extra feature to this installment is that, you can now lock onto targets by holding the R button.
There are several cut-scenes and cinematics between stages to keep the story fresh and funny too. Note that, the GameCube version features exclusive content compared to the other releases of the game, which include several mini-games. Additional content could be unlocked by connecting the Game Boy Advance version of the game to it!
Rayman 3 is an excellent 3D arcade platform. It's pretty, it's quite a challenge, and is loaded with rewards!

Rayman 3 was considered one of the prettiest 3D action platform titles back then, with plenty of soft colors, several lighting effects, beautifully painted textures, and solid animations. Developers gave incredible attention to detail, great variety, lots of challenges and humor. Frame-rates are smooth at any time during gameplay too. It's really an eye catching game even when played nowadays!
The sound is excellent too, offering plenty of nicely composed soundtracks along with several sampled SFX and lots of digitized voice dialogues.
