Other versions

Rayman 2 released for a huge amount of platforms, including the Nintendo 64, Game Boy Colour, DS and 3DS, The Sony PlayStation 1 and 2, Windows PCs and various mobile platforms. The best version of the game is still debated, though the Dreamcast version is certainly a contender. The Dreamcast version of the game has more particles and decoration props, along with darker/different textures due to a new shading engine. It also has a completely different version of the Hall of Doors and the addition of the Globox Village.
