cool!

Posted by McGhee

I wish they were selling the soundtrack to this game, or maybe I just haven't been able to find it. It's so fun and so charming.

also hot chicks worked on this game

This is the feel-good-in'-est video of 2012 so far. That team set out to do something risky and original, and they cah-rushed it. Bravo!

Posted by Sushi0

I really need to play this.

Posted by eccentrix

Even the subtitlist is French!

Posted by Dogma

You could be à cynic and say this trailer came out because of bad sales but you can also say it's very good of Ubisoft to keep pushing the game even after release, to few company's do this and i'm all for it! À game should not roll over and die just because it had à bad release.

And nobody bought it (partially because they charged 60 bucks for a game that should have been 20 and put it out next to all the big games of the year). So they will be doing models for future Assassins Creed spinoff games for the next 5 years. Hey, didn´t want to ruin your feelgood times.

Wow, those glasses are so amazingly French.

I really, really need to play this game.

There is a limited edition with an artbook and the soundtrack that was only released in europe as far as I know. I got it on release, and it has this nice little diorama that pops out when you open the game box too.

Man this game deserves to sell well,

Makes me sad that Yet another Call of the same old shit: Modern Completelackofsoulfare game sells so many copies and Rayman gets pushed to the wayside. But then I guess thats the way of the world, people seem to like lack of personality I guess it reflects their own.

Are the subtitles necessary?

Just lower the price and I'll buy it.

Absolutely not.

Nice timing on the marketing Ubisoft.

This video is at least two months old. I don't know why Giant Bomb only posted it just now.

I think we need to stop blaming Call of Duty for all gaming woes. I was just as disappointed in MW3 as a lot of other people and it was upsetting as a fan of the series that I wouldn't get to play a new COD until maybe Nov when Treyarch pushes out their game. That said you need to really get over the fact that the series sells well. You really think this twitch army shooter is stealing away potential market customers for a 2D sidescrolling retro throwback game? If MW3 wasn't released this November, Rayman would surely have sold a lot more right? These games are filling in their own respective niches, and maybe, this is a wild shot but maybe theres not as many people out there that want to play a game like Rayman anymore. Certainly not for the price of a full fledged game. I'm not supporting the whole COD model of yearly iteration, just tired of hearing everyone automatically pull out their COD rant whenever any game doesn't do very well in sales.

Was Michel wearing lipstick? madness

Those subtitles are for the Americans. Not all Americans obviously. They cant understand Europeans. This isn't racism or prejudice and im not being a dick. Its true. You guys subtitle british shows cos you cant understand us. Was it Skins that you subtitles cos you couldnt understand bristolian. Crazy. Didnt cheryl cole have subtitles on X factor?

Posted by metal_mad

americans needing subtitles for anything that isn't american english=unbelievable

Posted by Andy_117

@metal_mad: This video was in English and French. I assume GiantBomb took this off a DVD (judging by the font and size of the subtitles), and it was just all on/all off. Or... something to those ends, anyway.

Edited by Suits

@Humanity: The release date of this game was so poorly chosen. Games with huge advertising campaign like MW3 certainly have an effect on the awareness of people that this title even came out. Sure it has a different market, but if you're going to put it in the same month as: Sonic Generations, Uncharted 3, LA Noire, Skyrim, Super Mario 3D Land, AC:Revelations, Saints Row 3, Skyward Sword, you're not going to get much out of it. Today had been a way better moment, but they obviously haven't learned from BG&E. Also no PC release, derp. No surprise there though, since it's Ubisoft.

Posted by Elerigo

The french language sound so sexy coming of the those women.

Posted by Kerned

It's a great game, and you can buy it new for only $30 if you look around. So worth the purchase.

Posted by Humanity

@Suits: I agree about the release date being an issue. My point was that I'm tired of everyone pulling out the Modern Warfare punching bag when shit goes wrong. You can just as well say "well fucking Skyrim ruined Rayman for everyone those hacks at Bethesda are assholes" I can't comprehend release dates actually. It's ridiculous that for 2-3 months you can't keep up with all the new releases then you have a solid 2-3 months of literally nothing.

I know they probably blew their marketing budget already but considering how slow January is I hope this is another marketing push for this game. I think it'd get some attention if they advertised it now.

Posted by Junpei

God I wished they did a push pre-release. Even if only this trailer before hand. It's nice to see them not completely throwing the game away and trying to support it but it's been marked down considerably everywhere at this point and it's a shame because I played this game to completion and loved every minute of it.

While I agree $60 is a bit much I really think the game is a great buy at $40. There is a ton of content and length to it to easily justify it at that price. But yea, Ubisoft releasing it the same day as Assassin's Creed pretty much killed it from the start.

Posted by hermes

Its a pity Ubisoft never knew what it had. If the game was released for 40 $ and/or was not released on the same week as Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Saints Row, Skyward Swords, Need for Speed, Super Mario 3D, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and their very own Assassins Creed; I am pretty sure it would have made a lot better.

Not to diss on any of those games, but to expect Rayman Origins could stand (sales-wise) against any of them with its minuscule marketing budget and relatively poor brand recognition was naive at best... Hopefully the game will do well in a late push at a discounted price and a slow month.

Posted by Jack_Lafayette

That dude's glasses are blowing my mind.

Posted by Jace

Ubisoft just earned some respect from me for putting this out there.

The next Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games are gonna be good, right? right?

Posted by Jace

@hermes:

I'd honestly like to hear the logic behind why they released it when they did. Does anyone know any "official" word on why they chose such a bad time?

Posted by Artisan88

Paid full price for it the day it came out, and happy to do so, I love this game and enjoyed playing it immensely with my 5 year old (who has become surprisingly good at platformers... is this what my parents thought with me on my NES??). Neat to see the behind-the-scenes, and glad I could fully support an effort like this game. My dollars say MAKE MOAR LIKE DIS

Posted by JRSABADO

@BasketSnake: It's $20 at Toysrus now....and in my opinion it is well worth a $60 price tag. Especially if you have friends to play co-op...frantic fun hilarious chaos are the words that come to mind....

Posted by Xenos_19

@Elerigo: It's really not as sexy as you think , once you understand the language , it's a bit more vile.

I think the 'sexyness' comes from the mysterious factor of not understanding what they are saying.

Watching this reminds me of how much I loved this game.

Why shouldn't this be a 60 dollar game? It's obviously a serious production, which shows when you play it. I've logged 25 hours and I don't think I'm done yet.

While I love getting a bargain on a game (and i got this for 20 at Toys R Us), i think it's flawed to say this game should have been a discount title. It's a very good, incredibly fun, and surprisingly deep game.

The big mistake was the timing of the release. Should have been dropping now when there is nothing happening. Instead i'm sure they shoved it out the door because a financial quarter was ending, and instead killed any chance this game had of being a success.

Well, I'm sold. I shall buy.

Agreed, saying this game is only worth $20 is an insult to the quality of the game, and the amount of content in there. I personally think this game is worth even $60, but I agree that public perception is such that a non mario 2d platformer shouldn't be more expensive than $40 if you want it to sell.

Edited by JamesJeux007

I could probably write an entire review about how this game is one of the best 2D platformer ever made... but I'm just gonna say one thing : It is a re-imagining of the first Rayman (and the only TRUE Rayman, according to the developers, if you watched the video) and in case you don't know, the first Rayman IS one of the best 2D platformer ever made.

If you like Rayman: Origins, buy Rayman. If you liked Rayman, buy Rayman: Origins. If you like video games, buy both these games, they are incredible.

The public perception was that this thing was an episodic downloadable game. Because it started as a downloadable and they later decided to milk full price out of it. Okay, they added stuff, but they did next to nothing to change the public perception of the game. So yeah, I would have put this thing out as a 20 dollar download and maybe released some of the content as DLC. You know, as it was originally planned?

It´s a pretty cool game. I played it on Wii, but I would have never ever payed 60 dollars/euros for it. Because it was never a full price product. Good thing it got cheap pretty quickly. I bet the creators would tell you the same thing. Ubisoft as a publisher was probably the only party involved who wanted the higher price point. Because they are greedy motherfuckers.
