Slightly disappointing sequel to fantastic platformer 0

"Rayman Origins" is a bona fide 5 star game. It had wit, charm and a beautiful colorful palette. And it problably had the best in-game music since the days of the SID-chip. Me and my girlfriend played the s--t out of that game and loved every second of it.Now the time has come for Ubisoft's try to repeat the success. Are they lucky this time around? Yes and no.+ The hub was a huge improvement over "Origins". Also good use of extra features such as invasion and Kung Foot (but scratch the Lucky ...

Rayman Legends takes the joyful formula from Origins and injects an extra dose of colour and joy 0

Rayman has always been a fairly weird franchise but the Raving Rabbids trilogy launched our French friend into a level of insanity that seemed unrecoverable. However, 2011 saw Rayman return to his slightly less crazy 2D platforming roots with Rayman Origins, and 2013 has seen Rayman spawn a sequel that very much improves on everything Origins did right. Full to bursting with colourful charm, Legends is in every way the brilliant reboot that Rayman so desperately needed. Legends has a story but ...

Superb, bloody buy it! 0

2011’s Rayman Origins was a game that resonated with many, many gamers.

It was initially intended to be a Wii U exclusive due to release in the early days of the Wii U, it was seen as the potential killer...

Ubisoft should be proud that they released the best 2D platformer in over 15 years 0

Sometimes I wish I could just leave a phrase and be done with a review, not to be lazy, but to leave an impactful statement that would get everyone talking. You see, something hit me when I was playing Rayman Legends and it led me to a conclusion that Rayman Legends is the Super Mario Galaxy 2 of Rayman’s gaming career. What I mean by that is Rayman Legends feels like an extension of the already superb Rayman Origins, but just like Miyamoto and his team, Ancel obviously had more ideas to pump in...
