IGN (Sep 13, 2000)
The game has very few flaws, it's one of the best designed platform games of all time, and if you don't have a Dreamcast and you consider yourself a fan of 3D platform adventure games, there's no reason why you shouldn't go out and buy this game right now. It's right up there with Ape Escape as the system's best platform game and it's a better overall gaming experience than any of the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon games.

Nach Nintendo 64 und Dreamcast überzeugt nun selbst die technisch schwer umsetzbare PlayStation-Version von Raymans zweitem Abenteuer auf ganzer Linie. Den Ideenreichtum der Programmierer und Leveldesigner haben wir schon hinlänglich gelobt, deshalb sei noch mal klar hervorgehoben, dass euch bei Rayman 2 auch auf Sonys CD-Schleuder um das zur Zeit beste Jump&Run-Vergnügen handelt. Generell gilt aber bei allen Versionen: Wer eine durchgespielt hat, sollte vom Kauf einer weiteren aufgrund doch eher geringer Unterschiede absehen, außer er ist zum Rayman-Fetischisten geworden, der ohne die kleine Knuddelfigur nicht mehr zurecht kommt. Oh Gott, ich fürchte bei mir ist es schon fast soweit!

If you are to have any platform game in your PSX collection, you have got to have this one. It has all the ingredients you need and more besides. Excellent graphics and sound, coupled with smooth controls make this an absolute pleasure to play. Levels are nicely varied, and the humour from start to finish is a joy to behold. One word of warning though, make sure you keep in contact with the outside world, this game could well have you tied to your TV for weeks to come! And if your arms and legs start disappearing, consult a doctor immediately!

Als je van platfromgames houdt dan mag je Rayman 2: The Great Escape zeker niet missen.
After the long wait we finally got our hands on Rayman 2, and if all those sliding release dates were put back to tighten up on gameplay then the wait has definitely been worth while. Overall it's very similar to Croc. A 'must buy' for the kids and a probable purchase for those who don't like their games to be too taxing on the mind.

Rayman 2 signe en résumé une très bonne performance en renouant avec la Playstation. Un titre qui devrait s’assurer un bel avenir grâce à son charme unique et à sa réalisation de haut vol. En bref, un soft à mettre entre toutes les mains !

Auch diese Version konnte mich rundum begeistern. Ubi Soft schaffte es perfekt, die fantasievolle Märchenstimmung und die kunterbunte Grafik auf Sonys betagte graue Kiste zu portieren. Lediglich die Sprachausgabe stört mich persönlich doch ziemlich, da diese überhaupt nicht zum Spiel passt – Rayman spricht einfach nicht, basta! Ansonsten ist aber alles gelungen, wodurch auch PS-Besitzer bedenkenlos zugreifen dürfen.
GameSpot (Aug 30, 2000)
By including a wonderfully humorous story, excellent game mechanics, and solid graphics and sound, Ubi Soft has created a game that appeals to all types of gamers and shouldn't be overlooked by gamers who only own a PlayStation. But those of you who own multiple platforms should definitely pick up the N64 or Dreamcast version instead.
PSM (Aug, 2000)
As an overall experience Rayman 2 is wonderful. It might not be able to take on the likes of Ape Escape, but it easily caters to a much broader market. Almost any gamer, regardless of age or skill, should have little problem finding enough enjoyment and challenge in Rayman 2. And if that wasn't enough, the game also includes a Special Bonus Level that's an homage to the first game. What more could you want?

Por su parte la de PSOne se tiene que conformar con ser la peor versión en consola de sobremesa, puesto que los escasos añadidos (incluido el doblaje al español) no compensan la considerable cantidad de contenido eliminado. Eso sí, Rayman Revolution (PS2) no desmerece para nada al título de Dreamcast, ya que cuenta con la ventaja de conservar el doblaje al castellano pero pierde puntos por algún que otro problema de framerate. Si hubiera que elegir entre los dos juegos para portátiles, la opción más acertada sin duda es Rayman 3D (disponible en N3DS), a pesar de que se llevó más palos que flores por parte de la crítica. En cualquier caso y lo juguemos donde lo juguemos, Rayman 2: The Great Escape es título muy divertido y que cumplió las expectativas para ser la primera entrega en 3D de la serie. Viendo la senda que está tomando Ubisoft, quién sabe cuándo veremos la siguiente.
