The Glade of Dreams is up in arms again!
This idyllic world, where there is usually little more to do than eat, sleep, play (and enjoy a friendly fray or two among friends), is up to its eyeballs in trouble.

Never ones to shy away from a challenge, Rayman and his friends are more than happy to knock these nasty killjoys back to oblivion, especially since it involves saving nymphs, making mischief, and earning fantastic new powers to make even more mischief. And this won’t be the first time! As it turns out, the funloving Creator of the Glade, known as Bubble Dreamer, is a highly sensitive being whose every mood impacts the Glade for good or bad¦ Rayman has had to beat back the creatures of Bubble Dreamer’s nightmares before, and that’s what he, Globox, and the crafty Teensy casters are going to do again before the fabric of the Glade falls to pieces and their entire world fades like a bad dream.

A perfect 100.MisterRay97 | Oct. 27, 2013 | See all MisterRay97's reviews »
I couldn't help myself not giving an hundred out of hundred to this masterpiece. This game is easily the best 2D platformer I've ever played. I haven't actually played the original Rayman games; this was actually my first Rayman game and I got hooked to it. You play as Rayman (or you can choose another hero, if you like) and your mission is to save The Glade of Dreams. The levels are challenging enough and the "Skull Coins" are placed in tricky places. The game is really cute. You'll spend your time enjoying every bit and detail of this game. The game engine is superior. The enemies and all are well made. This game also has amazing soundtrack. You'll enjoy your levels with the sound, I guarantee it. The gameplay feels smooth and not-annoying (even if you die 100 times). I couldn't find a single negative thing about this game (except full-online multiplayer, which kind-of not suits this game). The levels are well made, well detailed and well organized. The gameplay is really varied, making sure you're never bored. You'll find how amazing the developers have worked on the level design. The detail, the life and the colour Ubisoft has given to this game simply is very difficult to find in any modern-day game. It also has amazing 4-player co-op feature, grab more controllers and have fun! The boss fights remind you of the good old days and require you to use your brain to figure out their weak points.
I'd like to conclude this review by calling this game an innovation in platforming video game genre and as a masterpiece and also as a huge example of how enjoyable video games are made. This game is probably the best Ubisoft game ever made and will ever be made.
A great nostalgic game for those who played the original Rayman.asiersua | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
I used to play Rayman when I was a kid, and I didn't personally like the Rabbids that much (the first game was alright, but then they went overboard with the damn squishies), so clearly this title has been a nice surprise for me. It brings back memories of the old Rayman games, adding new mechanics to an already great game. Definitely a must buy, especially if you manage to get it cheap during a sale.
A highlight of the genre.Numbi | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all Numbi's reviews »
Platform games are one of my favorite genres but in recent years a good 2D title has been hard to find. There are of course plenty of great indie titles that offer all kinds of twists on the genre but to be honest I have been yearning for some good old school action. As soon as I saw Rayman I knew that the game that I have been waiting for has arrived!
The charming visuals sucked me in but it was the gameplay that kept me hooked right to the very end. I am so glad that Ubisoft has left those wacky rabbits behind and focused on a title with Rayman as the hero again. From the wonderful visuals to the catchy tunes and addictive gameplay, this is a title that no 2D fan can afford to miss and I give it two thumbs up!

This game has an amazing art style and the way all the parts of the movement system fits together is just flawless. The enemies and the world is very creatively built and you see things that you would see in no other game than Rayman. The levels are fun to play and the whole mood of the game is quite cheery! With that said this game can be pretty hard at times if you haven't brought a pal to play with so be sure to do that! Besides from that you should really go check this game out!
