Rayman Arena

Rayman Multiplayer, titled Rayman Arena in France, Spain and the United States of America, is a multiplayer party game developed by Ubisoft Studios Milan and published by Ubisoft.

It consists of two modes: an arena fighting mode, and a racing mode. It is a 1-4 player game. In Rayman M, the Artifical Intelligence becomes more challenging as the story continues. In Rayman Arena, there are three levels of difficulty: Beginner, Pro, and an unlockable Master. There are also 4 cups to be won in both the Battle and Race modes.

Rayman M had been released in Europe in 2001 for the PC and PlayStation 2. The PC and PlayStation 2 versions of Rayman Arena were actually Rayman M, only edited in very minor ways, most noticeably changes from Rayman M in the intro movie, load screens, etc, to Rayman Arena. The PC version has become very popular among users since they tend to spread the word out to other online gamers. For those of you who prefer a PC rather than a console I invite you to check out a list of my favorite mmo blogs where they talk about the best online games.

The PlayStation 2 version had changed since Rayman M, though not by very much, like the fact that each character is equipped with freeze bullets which freezes a character for five seconds when shot.
