Everyone loves Rayman

Great platformers are like great driving games: nail the 'vehicle' and all the parts fall into place. If a car is great at cornering, every corner is sweet. And if a plumber is great at jumping, every gap is a joy. Rayman has never been great at jumping.... read more

Rayman Origins

I wasn't really interested in the game (never been a fan of Rayman). Then i played the demo because i love 2D platformers especially in this generation because they always look amazing and i was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The difficulty i can see doing my head in later on but i think i might pick this one up after i've finished Skyrim, AC: Revelations and Saints Row 3.

Why the surprise? Rayman might have started off as a me-too platformer, but Rayman 2 was a truly excellent 3D platformer and not far off the benchmark set by SM64. It was certainly better than any Sonic 3D interpretation.

The art design is fantastic! What you talkin' bout, cvg? No space marines, no genero anime, no gritty urban soldiers- just pure creative nonsense. The demo was great and that's coming from someone who thinks Rayman's a bit rubbish. More like this please game developers.

really 2d platforming is back. If you own a wii it never went a way.

This game looks awesome. There needs to be more hand-drawn 2D games.

Excellent review apart from the downers-the art and the singing? Shame on you cvg, those are what make the game more alive and delivers you into the wacky, crazy and fun world of Rayman.

Very much looking forward to it, especially the coop.

Fun, giggles,good times and of course, plenty of slapping ahead me thinks

Wind Blown Shopping Bag Simulator was rubbish. Carrier-Gust 2006 was *so* much better.

I think the design and singing were too little to complain about..
We are talking about a 2d-platformer here, not CoD, so for quality such as this, shouldn't have any criticism.
I give it a 10. And the singing wouldn't bother kids which was what the game's main audience consisted of.
Of course someone more older may not agree with it, but yeah overall quality is superb. There should be a different
system used for scoring different games such as this platformer. Platformer vs other platformers if that wasn't done.
The game reminds me of being a kid which reminds me of when I played my first Rayman game as a kid. It's fun to be a kid. :D

I can't even be bothered to bring out the Thread Necromancy picture. Just look at the date of the post before yours, then bang your head on a desk a couple of times. Thank you.
