Picture this scenario: 18 people gathered around a long, white table located somewhere in the basement of the GameSpot offices. After a tense, passionate, and illuminating argument that stretches on for almost 20 minutes, we are ordered to vote for a winner. A show of hands decides which game will be labeled The Best Platformer of 2011 and which will be relegated to "happy to be nominated" status. Hands were raised, totals were tallied, and a tie was declared. Ah, once again, it's abundantly clear why democracy doesn't work, at least when you're dealing with an even number of people. We looked around the room, from person to person, trying to think of how we could possibly solve this conundrum when everything that could have been said about these games had already been stated. And then, with a flash of light, the door to our dark meeting room was thrust open--in walked the answer to our problem. One last vote was cast, a true winner was finally declared, and a crisis was resolved.
I honestly haven't played sonic generations but if the controls are anything like the original few from the genesis I want no part of it. Rayman wins for so many reasons but one of the main ones is control. I died about a zillion times on Land of the Livid Dead and not once did I feel like blaming it on anything other than myself.
always loved Rayman... nice to see that they did justice to this classic characters new game title :D
Rayman beat Mario. Well after being upstaged by screaming Rabbids for several years, he deserves it. But come on guys, no nod for Sonic Generations? :(
