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.
It seems Rayman and his heroic gang of hilarious misfits has kicked off a war with just a little snoring! Their nightmarish neighbors from the Land of the Livid Dead don’t seem to share the same taste in music and have come to crash the party!
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.

Rayman is back, a bit different but still awesome.Wolfear | Nov. 24, 2012 | See all Wolfear's reviews »
Rayman returns, and like many new oldies, he also went back to 2d. The game itself just look silly, it doesn't take itself seriously, and it works beautifully. Playing together is incredibly fun, racing to the other side just the other can survive or punching them in the enemy, it just works magnificently. If you just want to play the game without collectibles, it is quite easy until the latter levels, The last levels and actually getting everything, is hard and you need to do everything perfectly. Well done Ubisoft in bringing Rayman back

Rayman Origin is the return of one of the best platform games, probably one of the few that can compete with Mario. Like the titles says, Rayman return to the origin and to the 2D gameplay of the first title. The game is really amazing with fantastic graphic and musics. There are many collectibles to get during the game and it's really challenging to find them all. If you can play the game in co-op you will have even more fun. For me this is the best Rayman ever made and surpasses even the old Rayman 2.

This game will grow to you in an instant. It's impossible to hate it. Great platformer with pretty aesthetics, fun characters, and the game just screams fun when looking at it. It doesn't tell you jokes, it outright projects them into your minds. It's that cool.
The game has co-op mode, so you don't need to have the fun all alone. Hopefully we'll see a lot more of this kind of Rayman soon.

This really is a great game. Too bad the sidescrolling games are something from the past. They are great for spending time with your family. They are really easy to learn and even the young kids can play them. All these points match with Rayman Origins as well.
The game was a very well done local co-op. You can play with 2 keyboards for example. I’ve played it with my GF and she enjoys the game just as much as I do even though she’s not a gamer. It’s the part of the fun actually to play with someone else. I don’t know if I would like to play the whole game by myself but together it’s so much fun that you just must get this!

Rayman Origins is a really gourgeous and fun game, the developers decided to go back to the original 2D style with some major graphical improvements. The characters have all it's own charm and also the action is rather humorous with many silly animations and more. It is a bit overpriced ($40) for a 2D game but I still would recomend buying it.
