About Rayman Arena Rayman Arena offers two modes of gameplay, the first of which, Race Mode, throws players in an every-toon-for-itself foot race where speed, short cuts, and tricks must be used in order to win with the fastest time. Whether players run, climb, or helicopter, Race Mode will prove to be no walk in the park. In Battle Mode, players enter the Arena for an all out lum fight where craftiness, like freezing your opponent and lum-shooting skills, can turn the tide to becoming the ultimate gladiator of the Arena. Featuring bonus levels, bonus modes, new characters and skins, the Rayman universe just got a whole lot bigger!
