    Rayman 4

    When I saw the title "Rayman Origins", I thought it was a remake of the first game. However, it's a new game but goes back to its old 2D roots. The game is incredibly beautiful, using Ubisoft's UbiArt Framework engine. T... Read Full Review

    Thirteen Points on Rayman Origins

    1. If you like beautiful 2D platformers where you play as a limbless something or other who speaks in pig Latin, well, they made game for you. I guess there are other 2D Rayman games but they are on like Game Boy and Pla... Read Full Review

    The good: Tight controls, levels design is not too difficult from design to the pace, enigmatic boss battles and time trials, sound and music has its charms, enough level numbers and things to do to improve its value.Th... Read Full Review

    Rayman Origins Wii

    A great return for Rayman. The shift to a platformer works well. Level designs are great and multiplayer is a blast. Story - 5, not much of a story. Just rescue these something-or-others.Gameplay - 8, great platforming ... Read Full Review

    The Platformer gamers needed, but not the one they deserved

    Rayman Origins was the platformer gamers needed, but not one that they deserved. I think that fits Rayman Origins situation quite nicely because honestly this game kinda came out of nowhere. Considering the rein of First... Read Full Review

    Stunning visuals, level design, and sound; however, it becomes boring and marred by outrageous difficulty

    At first this game seems like a godsend. It's visually beautiful with nice themed levels and fluid framerate. The audio is about as memorable as it'll ever be for a platformer. I found the controls to be too floaty for ... Read Full Review

    Combines fun and challenging quite masterfully.

    I'll admit, the graphics of this game are nothing short of stunning.Ranging from hills with faces overgrown with plantlife, to little glowfish conglomerating around you through dark depths of water; it is difficult not t... Read Full Review

    This game gives the Super Mario series a run for its money.

    This one of the funnest 2d style games I have played in a long time. The funny part for me is that its the first Rayman game I've ever played and I really enjoyed it. The art work the music and the game play its just ama... Read Full Review

    Who Says You Can't Buy Fun?

    In this era of first-person shooters and open-world RPGs, it takes a lot of effort and courage to produce a 2D platformer. Ubisoft , however, manage to remind us the rewarding benefits of such an investment (especially ... Read Full Review

    A new Rayman game sans Rabbids? Sign me up.

    Rayman was a great franchise, especially Rayman 2 and 3, those were some awesome games, then the Rabbids came, and while some of those games were pretty fun, I missed the platforming and most importantly, Rayman himself ... Read Full Review
