Challenging Platformer

by Michael on 3/28/2013

This game is easy to start playing but the difficulty does ramp up and will test your platforming abilities. The graphics are all hand drawn and look really impressive. The great thing about this version is that there is a 4-player local cooperative mode. You and three of your friends work together; jumping, swinging, and fighting enemies through each of the levels. It's a lot of fun during a party with a lot of people around. Read More

The story in Rayman Origin is as silly, perhaps even more, as we have ever seen from the series. You see, Rayman and his friends tend to make a lot of noise when they nap & laze around, to the point of creating snooze symphonies. This proves to be really bothersome to the old granny who is boss of the land of the livid dead, a dark & dreary realm near the glade of dreams. Read More

Review Rayman Origins is a rare beast, both as a side-scroller and a clever game with a ton of heart. This is a game with a sense of humor and a sense of joy. Fans of the genre would be fools to miss it, as would anyone who appreciates artistic and eccentric game design, or who wants a non-traditional but extremely solid multiplayer title.
