One of the best platformers this gen!

ex1s7 | Aug. 31, 2013 | Review of Ray man Legends

Well Ubisoft certainly did the impossible - they made Legends better than Origins in every way. It should be obvious just from the menu background how much work has been put into the game. The game looks even better than the original (if that's even possible), the music is even more epic, there are more characters, unlockables and levels and most importantly the gameplay is even better. Now you are controlling a secondary character (controllable with the touch screen on the Wii U) whose sole purpose is to assist you. At times it feels nice but at others it feels like a chore controlling 2 characters at once - and that's the game's only flaw. Everything else is perfect (or atleast as good as it can be untill the third game hits us) - jumping feels even more natural, fighting is a bit more deep, gathering collectables feels even better (and with better rewards) and the bosses. Holly sh** the bosses! They are so amazing and having them be 3D doesn't feel unnatural - its quite the opposite. Every boss is a spectacle and fighting them requires skill.

I'd say that the game speaks for itself with its videos. If you like platformers - you must buy this game! It is one of the - if not THE best platforming game.

A flawless fighting game!

While other fighting games transition to 3D and struggle with it, Skullgirls embraces the 2D sprites and delivers one of the best looking 2D fighters yet. The music is also stunning. Every tune for every character/level is simply amazing. Everything from the menus down to the character animations and the background screams style and though it may not appeal to everyone, the developers had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve and made it happen. Fighting in Skullgirls is a joy, There aren't 40+ fighters but the game costs much less than other fighting games and each character plays in a much different way then the previous one. There is a character for everyone in this game and comboing with them delivers. Its even easier to combo properly thanks to the lenghty tutorial in the game which explains in great detail every single detail of the combat. This feature is the holy grail for every newb to fighting games looking to learn them because most of the stuff in it applies to pretty much any fighting game out there. On the online side, the game has probably the best netcode from the fighting genre and there are always people to fight with. I can't think of a single thing that the game does wrong. The only downside to the game is the lack of characters but that is being addressed as we speak. I strongly recommend this game to any fighing game fan and anyone looking to get into fighting games. This game is a blast!
