An engine that makes wonders and a rich level design..XGpredator | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all XGpredator's reviews »
Rayman Legends is a worthy successor to Origins. More beautiful, richer, it displays a strong and effective gameplay, although phases with Murphy are sometimes poorly integrated and may put off some players. An unforgettable experience, to live alone or with others. Unless you are totally resistant to the Rayman universe, you can buy this masterpiece gaming eyes closed.
Ubisoft's take on Rayman doesn't fail to impressMisterRay97 | Nov. 17, 2013 | See all MisterRay97's reviews »
Another Rayman game. Well, they've improved a lot over Origins. Rayman Legends is another masterpiece 2D side-scrolling platformer from Ubisoft. And, it's amazing. The graphics have improved a LOT over the previous ones. The game is actually in 3D, but still retains the 2D style gameplay (more like what Team17 did with Worms Revolution and Paradox did with The Showdown Effect). The graphics are sweet and the gameplay remains rock solid entertaining. The new gameplay elements are amazing. Like, press "Y" on your controller and call your buddy to help you. The game feels even improved and is actually very optimized on the PC. You also have weekly challenges and "Back to Origins" levels which give you the nostalgia of the good (not so) old Rayman Origins. And, the entire game can be played in co-op with upto four players. Also, the "Kung-Foot" football co-op mode is amazingly entertaining. This game manages to put it installed on your machine; replay value is awesome. The levels are varied like every Rayman game. The soundtrack is amazing and the SFX are fun. And yes, the game is of course challenging and tests your skills on each and every level. And, the game is not frustrating. No matter how many times you lose to get the perfect amount of Lums in a level, you'll never get tired replaying it. And, collection of Lums and the monsters which give you Lums, the system is impressive. Uplay makes it even rocking. The game is amazing and a must-buy for platformer and Rayman lovers. You might like to use a gamepad, though. Keyboard isn't bad, but the game is better with a gamepad. I always play Rayman with a gamepad.
Overall, I'd say, this game is a masterpiece that runs well on the PC. Ubisoft didn't fail to put the classic 2D gameplay with amazing graphics adding online features and including co-op gameplay while managing to retain replay value and making a video game that stands out as an example of how video games are meant to be made. I have only praises for this masterpiece. 100/100. Perfect game.
Rayman Legends is the best platformer ever made and probably will ever be made.

I'm big fan of Rayman games and the latest Rayman Legends doesn't disappoint at all.It has lots of levels which are unique to one another and a lot of fun.Each level is even more fun than the previous which made me play for hours.If you played Rayman Origins you will see some familiar faces like the characters you can play with and some enemies.There are also new things that you can do in Rayman Legends like Challenges and Kung Foot which is something like football with 4 players and the goal is to score goals of course.The only thing that bugs me its that at one point you are going to have to go back to some levels to collect the Teensies.It's certainly not a bad thing, but it keeps me from playing the newer levels which i want in order to complete the game.There is also Back to origin levels in which you can play some of the levels from Rayman Origins which is pretty cool.The game is very fun and its even more fun if you play it in co-op.

After shunting the recent efforts of Mario into a lurid green U-bend, Rayman Origins proved a tough act to follow. As a sequel Rayman Legends initially disappoints with what seems like a shift away from speedy platforming, but warms up into something wonderful after you’ve played for a few hours.
Originally planned as a Wii U exclusive, Legends is keen to showcase the Gamepad functions right from the very start of the game. Murfy is a green grinning fairy that pops up in specific levels, moving objects and cutting ropes when you appropriately poke the gamepad’s touchscreen. The problem is, most people won’t own one.
On the 360 code provided for review, Murfy’s actions have been mapped to one button. Press B, and he’ll activate whatever object he’s currently beside. Unfortunately, you can’t control Murfy’s position: the game doesn’t do a terrible job of ensuring that the green fairy is always locked on the object you’re expecting, but there’s an overall lack of precision here that doesn’t gel with the razor-sharp platforming. Anyone can activate Murfy in co-op, which immediately proves to be a bit of a nightmare. 'Don’t touch the B button!'
Thankfully the latter half of Legends uses Murphy in a less frustrating way, and it isn’t long before the game offers up hardcore goodies: time trial trophies don’t appear this time, but instead we get loads of bastard-hard speed-run missions.
As things open up, the best level designs surface. 20,000 Lums Under The Sea blends Bioshock’s vision of velvet and brass with a classic James Bond tone. The overall aesthetic in Legends however doesn’t match the magic of Origins, but this isn’t an overly negative point: it’s like trying to compare Disney to Pixar. Stand-out moments ensure it never feels average, and the quantity of stuff to do puts Origins to shame.
A whopping chunk of Origins is playable within the game, and your ‘Awesomeness’ level can be increased indefinitely by competing in weekly and daily challenges. Rayman Legends isn’t perfect, but it’s still a cracking game.
Nice title for all-time Rayman fans.asiersua | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
I played Rayman for long hours during my childhood, I can tell you I had so much fun with those games. Now they bring that original idea back with Origins, and expand it even further with Legends. What can I say. This game is great, the art is a masterpiece, and it will always bring a nostalgic tear to those good old Rayman fans, such as myself.
