Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is chronologically the third part of the adventures of the incredibly likeable character, the eponymous Rayman, whose body seems to be constructed of completely separate parts. The game employs a new, innovative combat system that offers unique gameplay possibilities, making it bigger and more complex than the highly praised Rayman 2: The Great Escape. A bigger emphasis was put on the story aspect of the production, which makes Rayman’s friends, Globox and Murfy, play a more important role in the plot.
The main enemy of Rayman and his friends is the army of Hoodlums. In the course of the game, the protagonist traverses new, previously unavailable locations. We will visit both beautiful, magic-filled places as well as completely destroyed swamps and heathlands inhabited by many hostile creatures. The game offers over 20 various kinds of opponents. Each of them has different weapons and unique fighting style. Rayman also possesses a new, incredibly powerful weapon – the so-called Power Fist.
Visually, the game presents higher quality than Rayman 2. The animations were improved, thanks to which both Rayman and the rest of the characters look more pleasurable to the eye. The game is well-suited for younger players due to its design and comedic character.
