so they are trying to give people the quest or something?

There's an entire level based around "Black Betty." Best part of the demo.

Posted by probablytuna

Wait, is this game polygonal? Either way, damn it looks gorgeous.

Watching this makes me want a WiiU. Then I remember everything else about the console.

They'll fix the firmware and all the other dumb DRM and account stuff eventually, right? RIGHT?!

I downloaded the demo last night. It's sooo good. I need this game in my life so bad.

There's no doubt about it: that is fucking awesome.

Guys... I've always disliked Rayman.

I played it at a Gamestop, it is, in fact, awesome.

There are some 3D models, but most of the game is gorgeous hand drawn art. Also the game runs at native 1080p at 60fps.

You are obviously a terrible person with terrible opinions.

I still haven't even played the first one. I suppose by the time I play Origins, Legends will be out on Steam...

Posted by kagato

I played it at a Nintendo event a while ago, that level is fantatsic, im just downloading the demo just now.

Posted by cannonballBAM

Does anyone know if the Toad level was in the earlier demo in stores or is it new to the Wii U shop?

Posted by morrelloman

Dope. They have demos on stuff on the WiiU WiiU WiiU. That is so next gen.

I downloaded this yesterday and played the whole thing; when I got to the "Castle Rock" level -- where the game-play (jumping, attacks, everything) is completely synched-up to a goofy version of "Black Betty" -- my kids (ages 3 & 8) thought it was so hilarious and awesome that I ended up playing it 4 times in a row. By the final play-through I had collected every single Lum, which made it so I was stuck at the end of the level standing on top of that big monster; there was no transition back to the "Gallery," and the only thing left to do was jump off the monster and die ... which totally froze the Wii U.

Rayman: Origins was one of the best games I have played this year, and Legends is a big part of the reason we have a Wii U in the house right now. I'm really excited for this.

In the mean time: we're enjoying Nintendo Land quite a bit.

I really wish games that don't need to be on Wii U that are basically sequels to multiplatform games were oming to other platforms.

question for anyone who played the demo, how is it for single player? do you still need to switch between the touch screen and the regular controls?

Posted by Triumvir

Here's a playthrough of the "Black Betty" level, which is called Castle Rock. It is pretty rad. Not $350 rad, but still pretty rad.

It needs more "Wah Wah"...speaking seriously (kind of) I hope some of the people who made the last "New" Mario games saw/played this and realized what is wrong with their games.

The demo has three levels, and in the middle of one of them I was forced to switch to the pixie guy (touch screen) and guide an AI controlled Globox through the level. Hard to say how that will play out over the full game, but it's safe to say that at least a few stages will be touchpad required.

Does anyone know if they limit the number of times you can play demos like on the 3DS?

Holy shit.

After playing the demo, it's damn good, but it sure ain't Origins. The control didn't feel nearly as tight. I'm also a little worried about control options for MP. It's a three button control scheme (run, jump, punch), so playing on a Wiimote is gunna be rough. I'd rather not shell out for a "pro" cotroller, so hopefully it's at least Wii Classic compatible.

I just wish gamers would catch on. Rayman Origins outclasses the new Mario games in every respect. Folks complaining that NSMB has stagnated need to speak with their wallets, and show Nintendo that they've been left behind.

30 times for Rayman

10 times for FIFA

no idea how often you can play the Sonic Racing demo.

Because the game features stuff you can't do elsewhere. Simple as that.

Yeah, it's 30 times. No idea why anyone would need to play a demo 30 times but... yeah.

Just give me a light version without the stupid coop !

It's fine for single player. There are 3 levels in the demo; there's this one, there's the Toad level. The third (well... technically the first) has you playing it normally, but then you free the trapped little fairy/insect guy, and so you're not playing as Rayman/whoever else anymore, as much as you are laying the ground and moving obstacles for that character to progress like you would in multiplayer. Seemed fine. There's a tricky section they flash in the trailer where you're using the gamepad, trying to spin a wheel to help navigate Rayman or whoever through like those old 'marble in a maze' puzzles. Again, it was fine. Well implemented, but the Castle Rock stage was totally the highlight.

Watched the vid in HD and now I feel like a disgrace to mankind. OH GOD why did I say that.

watch a trailer to watch a trailer......i hate that :/

Posted by umdesch4

Just in time for xmas. I have a feeling that Nintendo saw this and heaved a sigh of relief that this demo is probably enough on it's own to account for a whole bunch more WiiUs under the tree.

So do you want the game because it looks pretty or because of the gameplay because the "stupid co-op" is integrated into the single player level design, as you can see in the demo.

As someone who bought a WiiU primarily to play this game, I for one would still just prefer a proper sequel to Rayman Origins. I don't want the touchscreen stuff, I'm simply putting up with it to get more Rayman.

Everyone complaining about this being WiiU exclusive, just stfu please. You will get your Rayman Origins 2, it will probably resemble this game quite a bit in terms of assets/art. Just let people who have purchased and are enjoying this platform have some god damn fun. Additionally, keep writing off 'stupid co-op' without even really grasping its full effect or how it's been integrated in to the game smoothly and inoffensively, whether played with 1 or 5 players. Please keep doing that, the games industry is much better for it

Posted by ProfessorEss

Any one care to share their experience as far as framerate and control responsiveness/snappiness (relative to Origins) is concerned?

Posted by BBQBram

It's understandable that some people just want another Origins on their platform of choice. But in the end I'm thankful Nintendo hooked this franchise for the Wii U, ensuring some actual innovation. A direct sequel with just a different art style and some new levels would have probably been a fine game, but this feels like more than an easy sequel, which is definitely a good thing.

Wanna play the game but don't want a Wii U. What a conundrum!

It's good, but relative to Origins (play on the 360), it feels like a step down. It's a little hard for me to tell since the demo levels aren't as demanding, but it definitely seems a little sluggish by comparison. That said, it isn't terrible, and it may only be noticeable if you've played A LOT of Origins. It's also just a demo, and they might be spending some of the delay time punching up the framerate and tweaking the responsiveness.

I have indeed played A LOT, and I mean A LOT of Origins. As in I've probably beaten every level in that game at least 20-30 times over.

It's easily my son's favourite game (that's why I've played it so much) but one of the biggest reasons it's his favourite is because it controls so well. Seems like 95% of games out there are either too mature, too complex, or control too poorly for him so I'd kill for another 2D Rayman.

Hopefully I'll find an opportunity to try it out myself but in the end it probably won't matter because even if it controls better than Origins I can't see me dropping 400 bones on it.

Thanks for the scoop :)

Yeah, I played that "Black Betty" stage in a store. My two word review:

SUPA DOPE.
