Rayman Legends review
by BuskingforBlem

Rayman legends is by far the best Rayman game and one of the greatest 2d platformers of the decade. The game blends fluid controls with the beautiful level art that begs to be explored for lums and other goodies while keeping a frantic pace. The problem that just hurts the game enough so that I can't consider it exceptional is the wealth of murfy stages that require you to use the gamepad's touch screen and gyro to create a safe path for Rayman for the level (assuming you're playing the wii u version). This slows the game to a grinding halt and makes you wish that you could get back to the platforming stages. However the murfy stages aren't terrible and the platforming stages are well worth their wait so I definitely recommend this game.

The default keyboard controls suck when controlling Murphy and the player at the same time, and because of that, the penultimate level is impossible to complete without a workaround or a controller. Also, the PC version doesn't have online content anymore (challenges),  so a good portion of the game is lost forever. If Ubisoft or a modder releases a version with offline challenges, then this game would be perfect 10/10.

Oh, and don't bother playing Rayman Origins, almost all levels in that game are in this one with better controls and implementation, and the ones that don't you can just see playthroughs on the internet.

The Murphy stuff was a gimmick in the Wii U version and it really shows here. It's functional and fine but later ports show how forced and unnecessary it is. Also not exclusive to this game but platformers that have both a walk and a run speed should stop mapping run to a button. Solid enough platformer, though.
One of the best platformers out there

i think the cast of playable characters should be trimmed, as there are many re-skins in there, but it's a great platformer otherwise. the musical levels are a nice touch.
Good fun in local co-op.

Beautiful and colorful visuals. Good variety of characters.

The game gets exponentially more difficult and soon becomes a stressful exercise in patience.
I absolutely cannot recommend this game enough. Everything about this is just magnificent. The gameplay is some of the finest I’ve ever seen, the art is super beautiful, the music is absolutely superb, Kung Foot needs to appear at Evo, and the addition of Origins levels just combines two already-great games into one amazing package. Even the randomly-changing online challenges are always so fun to compete in. It is a necessity to play this as it’s now in my all-time favorites ever.

One of the most beautiful Jump and Runs ever. The Mix of good Soundtrack, pretty Graphics and fine jump and Run Fare With tricky Difficulty is one of the best Jump and Runs in recent Years. In Rayman Legends, you jump through 5 (actually 6) worlds with many familiar characters from the Universe. There you have to find Little Ones, but also Lums have to be collected. This is incredibly Fun. Again and again, this is loosened up by the so-called Music Levels, which you could play again and again, that they are a lot of Fun. In Addition, you can also play many Levels from the Vörger Origins again. As already mentioned, the Game is tricky but never unmanicable. But you should bring a Little Experience from the Genre. Therefore, it is more recommended for Genre Connoisseurs than for Newcomers. 3D Bosses must Also be defeated. In addition, there are so-called Daily Challenges in which you can compete with other Players. In addition, the Game has a wonderful Humor. Verdict: Very nice 2D Jump and Run, Absolute SPIELEMPFEHLUNG, also worth €20. Better than the Vörger. Playability: (-------means suitable) Beginners: Advanced/Genrekenner:-----------Experts:-----------SPIELSPAß: 10 out of 10 GRAFIK: 9 out of 10 STEUERY: 9 out of 10 SOUNDTRACK: 10 out of 10 GESAMT: 38 out of 40 Points, ABSOLUTE EMPFEHLING!!!!!!!

For me, the best Rayman part yet! But Moment: I grew up with the Rayman Gold Collection and didn't even know until the Release of "Origins" that the Series was seriously continued. What can I say-Rayman is one of the few Series in my opinion that has reached the "Modern Era" with Flying colours and is represented on so many Platforms that it is a Pleasure. (Minigames that are almost no longer Minigames for Android, IOS and Windows Phone; Versions for WII, XBOX, PS Vita and probably more I'm too lazy to google about.) So far I haven't had any Problems with the Game. It always runs smoothly; The online challenges are always achievable. Only the Meaning of the kung food dingen remained hidden from me so far. The Levels are getting-oh Miracle-of course more and more difficult, but in some cases it gets really ridiculous and you actually have to be good. Nice are The "Minigames" that appear after Completing several complete Levels. ("Home Wanted") as well as the music levels that are unlocked after the boss fight. You hop and beat and know the Cuckoo to the Beat. Just right for music-savvy People. Story, as always, save Little Ones and collect Lums. Soundtrack good again, too. For Rayman fans, young or old, new or from the Beginning, a Must.
