Our zany, disconnected hero, Rayman, is back. This time on the Sega Dreamcast and in an all new, fully 3D adventure. Evil Robo-Pirates from deep in space have invaded Rayman's world and are enslaving all of its inhabitants. Rayman and his friend Globox travel to the Great Forest where a large army of pirates is waiting and engage in a fierce battle with them.
Rayman, using his powerful energy spheres, destroys many of the metal monstrosities while Globox creates small rainstorms over their heads in order to rust them. In the middle of the fierce battle, Rayman is distracted by a vision. Appearing in his mind, Ly — Rayman's magical fairy friend — tells him that the pirates have broken the heart of the world and have scattered its energy into a thousand pieces.
Rayman is caught off guard by the terrible news and is captured by one of the gigantic robots. As he tries to create an energy sphere, Rayman realizes that his powers are gone. The destruction of the Primordial Core has left him powerless. While Globox escapes, Rayman is taken and held prisoner by the pirate's leader — Razorbeard. Now Rayman must find a way to escape from the dreaded pirate ship and save his world from being conquered by the evil Robo-Pirates.
In Rayman 2: The Great Escape, you must guide Rayman across 54 levels and 21 worlds in order to reassemble the shattered Primordial Core and unite the Four Masks that will awaken Polukus — The mighty spirit who can help save Rayman's world. To help Rayman succeed, you must use all of his abilities, which includes: jumping, shooting energy spheres, swimming, and activating Rayman's helicopter skill. You must also help Rayman face special events such as flying rockets, riding whirlwinds, and surfing lava flows.
Rayman 2: The Great Escape for the Sega Dreamcast features exclusive bonus levels, Internet downloads, and a brand new multi-player game. It is a 1-4-player game and is VMU and Jump Pack compatible. Rayman's world is in grave danger. Help him escape from the evil pirate's ship and reunite the shattered Core. Without you and Rayman all hope is lost. ~ Damien Thorpe, All Game Guide
