“It’s one of the best 3D platform games out there.” – EGM




Rayman 2’s variants are both cool and slightly liberating. Both ‘big box’ editions use the standard retail release for the inside pack-in. Meaning if you come across the outer box and just the freebies, you can slap any copy of Rayman 2 into the box and complete it. Ubi Soft didn’t even bother making a different retail SKU for these – they all share the same barcode.

First up is the Beach Ball Variant that comes in a larger box. The beach ball was sealed in a plastic bag, and includes a small repair sheet. Once blown-up (See video under the Media Tab), it’s a huge clear beach ball with Rayman in the middle. One of my favorite variants, be wary if you ever get this. If the beach ball hasn’t been opened – and you want to inflate it, use an air pump. Using your breath will introduce moisture into it, expediting the collectible’s time line to an untimely demise.

Big Box Release – Includes retail game, beach ball, and repair sheet.

The Watch Edition is a much thinner box with an open window to see said watch, which was not contained in plastic. The watch looks to be a wind-up with no battery, a plus for keeping it on a shelf among many other things for decades to come. Confirmed to have been sold at least at K-Mart.
