Rayman Legends is quite possibly the best 2d platformer released in the past 10 years.

It’s the follow up title to Rayman Origins (also a great game) and if you missed it, 40 of the stages from Origins have been included in Legends as additional re-mastered content.

It features over 120 different stages each with varying atmosphere, amazing music, and plenty of hidden collectibles. Each of the levels are hand drawn and beautiful to look at. Despite not being overly impressive on a technical level, Rayman uses a timeless style. While games like Crysis 3 probably won’t look that great 10 years from now, Rayman Legends will no doubt retain its charm.

The game also has multiple characters to choose from along with a host of unlockables. There are underwater stealth missions, time trials, and even musical stages where you jump to the rhythm of remixed popular songs. The inclusion of daily and weekly challenges allows you to compete with your friends, adding tons of re-playability.

If you enjoyed classic 2d platformers like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country, you should check out Rayman Legends as it’s the closest thing to them in this day and age.

Has combination of tight controls and well designed levels that makes platforming satisfying, excellent graphical style and music, as well as tons of unlockable content that will keep you playing even after finishing the story.

Very solid platformer.

The only downside is there's no online coop; only local.

This game is great! I love the levels where you have to constantly keep moving to the beat of the song playing. Plus, there are so many levels and character options to pick from. If you feel like changing it up a bit, then just go jump into another picture for different types of gameplay.

Out on a limb

Personal Rating: "Modern classic that should be in everyones library"
Genre: Platformer

Rayman seemed to find his limbless arms and feet after the release of Rayman Origins - a beautiful and intoxicating adventure of a game that turned out to be one of the most unexpected surprises of 2011. Taking Rayman back to the drawing board, Ubisoft and series creator Michael Ancel took the bold decision to steer the series back to its 2D roots with the introduction of a new framework called UbiArt that simply has to be seen to be believed. Through the use of UbiArt - Rayman Origins became the closest game this past generation to get the actual look and feel right of a Disney movie or cartoon come to life. It was also a wise decision because it helped differentiate the new game in a 3D platform dominated AAA arena.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=340572257
With its tight, razor-like controls harmoniously married to the games increasingly frantic series of precise jumps, runs, kicks, swings, slaps and air glides, Rayman Origins was an absolute delight to play and a joy to handle despite almost reaching Super Meat Boy levels of frustration towards the end. So... after years of roaming the platform desert (where many a failed platform hero is sent out to die) the genre suddenly had a new unsung hero. Had Rayman finally arrived at the gates of Mount Mario ready to take his place in the pantheon of platforming gods?

Everything about this sequel is larger, funnier, livelier and more joyous than the first. It's also bat-♥♥♥♥ crazy in the same way one would expect an asylum to be when that asylum has been taken over by the nut hounds themselves. Legends goofy story pretty much picks up where Origin left off with our friends once again awakening from another 100 year slumber only to find out that the mad magician from the previous game has split into five dark magicians who are once again running amok releasing nightmares of all kinds into the Glade of Dreams and its mythical lands beyond.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=227755791
Yet again, the nightmares and the magicians have gone on to capture all of the teensies along with the 10 princesses that rule this delightfully wacky world and it's once again left up to Rayman and his mad, zany cohorts to save the day. Like Origins - the game starts out deceptively easy but ramps up the difficulty pretty fast becoming rather super-duper difficult towards the end and will rely on lots of precision timing in order to complete. You will need pixel perfection to complete this adventure and if you don't mind that, you are going to have a blast and some seriously good laughs along the way.

I really admire Michael Ancel and the team he put together to create this platforming adventure. The levels of creativity on display in Legends far surpasses the surprise and wonder from Origins as they disassemble the traditional platformer yet again and in the process create what I now consider a platforming masterpiece. Coupling this with some of the most intensely satisfying level design and music they really have gone on to create last generations platforming masterpiece. If platformers get any better than this - please direct me to it because quite frankly this is the new gold standard in my books.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=340572690
If I have one gripe - its a large one but thankfully the games generous and loving heart is so huge it has swayed me not to deduct from my personal rating - is that is still does not offer online co-op. In this day and age this is a major oversight on Ancel and his teams part. I would want nothing more than to experience this zany adventure with some of my close friends who don't happen to be sitting on the couch with me but alas I can't. Like the Lego games from Traveler's Tales this repeated oversight is starting to make them look like stick-in-the-mud's and I hope that with the next release they seriously consider making this an option because I won't be so kind the next time around. If you are a platformer, cartoon or - hell, even humorist enthusiast you owe it to yourself to own this game immediately.

Welcome to the pantheon Rayman - your seat is the one next to the Italian Plumber with the red hat!

This is simply the best platform game I've ever played! And I've been playing most Mario titles since the NES.

The gameplay using a Xbox360 controller is tight and challenging. The level design, artwork and music is just... so friggin' awesome and fantastic. And there's a mind boggling amount of it!

Tons of replayability with weekly challenges and what not.

A true MUST HAVE for all fans of the genre.

Fantastic platformer with great visuals, tight controls, good soundtrack and lots of content. Levels are creative and varied. Weekly and daily challenges add even more to the mix.

The only thing I might hold agaist it is the requirement of uplay. It might cause some issues with online content. Get stuffed Ubi. Steam should be enough DRM.

EDIT. Weekly and daily challenges can be quite frustrating due to cheaters. It is a common sight to see people steal the diamond cups with riddiculus results like 9999 lums collected within a minute, or a challange completed in 00:00:00. It would be nice, if Ubisoft would make a sweep every once in a while and ban these people from multiplayer. Come on. Make this DRM uplay do something for players for a change. It probably won't happen.

Rayman Legends is one of the best platformers I've ever played because:

-it has PERFECT controls
-it has a lot of creative and fun levels (exept for the 8-bit levels because they just feel tacked on)
-the art style is gorgeous
-the music levels (yes that's a reason)

I hope I convinced some of you to buy this game.

p.s. it's much more fun to play this game with friends, so you should find some to play with

I fnd this game to be excellent, perhaps the best 2d sidescroller of the year.
There is a lot of variety and content in the game. I love the "20,000 lums under the sea" campaign the most thus far as it contains exciting levels which makes it feels like you're in an ocean's elevn or a bond movie even.

9.5 / 10 because I always think that games can be improved, however this is pretty close to perfection, I must say some levels are extremely tedious, such as Olympia's rescue mission.

All in all, recommended however.

After playing Rayman Origins I thought there's no way there could be a better Rayman game. I was wrong. Rayman Legends is even more beautiful, more fluid and better in a lot of ways than its predecessor.
The art style is similar to Origin's but brings little improvements that make it seem not only pretty but also chiseled from a tech point of view. It definitely looks like they took their time with the visuals of Legends, when you have to improve on something as good as Origin's art style it's the details that make a world of difference.
The difficulty can vary depending on how thorough you want to be with the collectibles - and there's a lot of them: lums, teensies, trophies for getting them as well characters/costumes getting unlocked because of it. The game can be enjoyed by anyone, it's never dull even if you don't decide to got after those though to reach collectibles.

Pros:
+ beautiful
+ technical for collectibles
+ great campaign pacing
+ those music levels
+ couch co-op

Cons:
- no online co-op

The best platforming game on PC and also one of the most fun and inventive games i have played in a long time.
Beautiful graphics, responsive controls and great music.
It's basically Rayman Origins with everything cranked up to 11.

For children of all ages ranging from 8 to 80.

9/10.

one of the best platformers ever, puts Rayman origins to shame, this game has tons of extras to unlock. there are some amazing classic hit songs in some stages (won't spoil the surprises on you ;) ), the score is awesome and the art style is top notch, high production values all around.

in case you didn't play Rayman Origins, the game is basically run from point A to point B to finish the stage, of course there are many hidden secrets in every stage and many things to collect to be able to unlock the other stages and progress through the game, it has a lot of variety and always interesting that you won't be able to put the controller down, there are many things that will spice up the game like in some stages you need to run as fast as possible to finish, some stages you will have a companion to help you out by raising up platforms or cutting ropes for you..etc.

the main game tends to be a little easier than origins but it still lots of fun and there are many challenges to be had if you want to, there are also a few stages from origins that made it to this game

the multi-player co op is frantic and funny as in origins, you will be laughing all the time at the crazy things that you can do when playing it with 3 other players

and then there is the mini game called Kung Foot, a crazy football game which requires you to slap or kick the ball and make it hit your opponent's goal, it might sound simple but it is really fun and you might get a lot of hours just playing this mini game.

well i think that should be enough to make you buy it or at least give it a try, it really is amazing and it is really scary how much content this game has and if you are a fan of platformers, believe me you will enjoy this game for sure

Rayman Legends is a truly special game. Following the fantastic reboot of Rayman Origins, Legends surpases it in every way possible. The tight controls and superb level design makes gameplay smooth and fluid. Every death feels like a fault of your own and not the cause of a cheap obstacle or bad game design. Add to this the best visuals and art direction of any platformer ever (yes, including Trine 2), and you have a recipe for greatness. The UbiArt engine is able to produce such lush and wonderful artwork that it's hard not to stop at stare.

As for content, this game has more than enough. Boasting a sizeable amount of main stages as well as Origins redone. Throw in the time trials and daily challenges, this game will surely satisfy any platformer fan.

Although it may seem hyperbolic, I believe that I can say with certaintly that Rayman Legends is the finest platformer that I have ever played. It's the complete package. If you are a fan of the genre at all you owe it to yourself to pick this title up.

Rayman Legends is just so much better than Origins. I remember talking, erm.. not so positive,.. about Origins. aside from the wonderful, colorful graphics. Well, let me say that Legends is a bigger and better game in every way; customization, unlockables (oh man, they keep on coming), secrets; there seems to be much more variety this time around and I couldn't recommend this game more.

There are 6 worlds to be completed, with the last one being more of a bonus world. Each world has about 8 to 10 levels, and each level could you take at least 5 minutes to complete. So it's a big game. Add even more secret and unlockable levels to that number and you know why it's called Legends.

Each of the first 5 worlds end with a musical level where you just run, punch and avoid enemies based on the music. It's brilliant and it works very well. In general there's much more variety gameplay wise as well, with the aforementioned musical levels but there are also stealth levels, and levels where you have to rely on a (CPU controlled) co-op partner.

The animations and graphics are top notch. Rarely have I been as impressed with 2D visuals as I've been with the last few Rayman games. No words can describe how this game looks and plays, you really have to witness it for yourself. This is art !

By the way, the boss fights aren't as frustrating as the ones in Origins. There was only one boss that, in my opinion, was more of a trial-and-error boss fight, the rest of them could easily be beaten the first time around, if you pay enough attention.

Rayman Legends surprised me in a big way and I'm saddened to hear that it didn't sell all that well. It has tons of content, so much even that most games look empty in comparison.

Buy it. Cherish it. Love it. Play it. But, more importantly, enjoy it. How can this game not put a smile on anyone's face ?

[Rating: 92/100]

I have beat this game multiple times on console (don't hurt me), and I can easily say that this is one of the best platformers ever...hands down! Whenever people hear "greatest platformer ever" people always point at the original Mario games, Super Mario Galaxy, etc. However, this easily joins among their ranks.

This game is a breath of fresh air in the platformer genre. Along with its counterpart Rayman Origins (which I have also beat), they are both really refreshing platformer games because of their unique style, in graphics, gameplay, and level design.

Firstly, the game is visually stunning. The game uses an engine called the "UbiArt" engine, which is used to easily animate any image. The animations in this game are flawless given the many different movements that Rayman can use. Plus, the game feels INCREDIBLY smooth, and there are no visual flaws whatsoever. If I was to ever to die in this game, I cannot fault the game for choppy frame rate... I always blame myself!

Speaking of which, the game has a difficulty balance that can accomodate both new players and old players. Some levels can be a breeze, but then others you can die A LOT, especially some of the later levels.

The level design is really good. Like most platformers, each world typically has a "theme". In my personal opinion, I believe that the "Fiesta de Los Muertos" world in Rayman Legends is the best, clearly because the level design is so great in every single level (if you play the first level at the world, you will see exactly what I mean). What a lot of platformers truly fail at achieving is creating MEMORABLE levels, and Rayman Legends has at least a few memorable levels that will be stuck in your head. Even the boss battles are really great!

The gameplay is also really addicting, with plenty of different moves to learn. This can range from a series of simplistic punches, all the way to cartwheels (a slightly more advanced move). While the objective is to complete a level, there is also a ranking for each level to grab a both a certain number of lums and "teensies". Lums, unlike the last game, are accumulated and can be used to unlock new variants of characters. Plus, lucky tickets unlock plenty of different things, including updated Rayman Origins levels!

...and the multiplayer...oh my....the multiplayer is GOLDEN!!!! This game easily has the most fun local multiplayer in a long while! The multiplayer is perfect for anybody, whether you want to play seriously or if you want to troll your friends. :)

Another memorable part of the game, even though it is not as prominent, would be the soundtrack. The soundtrack really compliments the game in different ways, and I had a couple of tunes stuck in my head. Overall, the game can last you quite awhile, maybe about 15-20 hours to complete everything (depending on how good you are). What can also add to the length would be the daily and weekly challenges, where you can REALLY hone your skills.

There are a few flaws, given the overall grand scheme of things, but hardly hold this game back from sheer greatness. I think that there should have been more minigames along with "Kung Foot" because "Kung Foot" isn't necessarily my favorite part of the game. Also, I think that there are also too many "clone" characters (variants of Barbara in particular).

To whomever might read this review, I would not even hesitate getting this game. Play it and love it! You won't regret it!

Ill be honest here. Ubisoft has create some very discouraging factors for players to even buy this game.
It has unnecessary DRM that forces you have installed Uplay and steam at the same time to just play the game. This is a rather rude concept when i speciffically purchaced the game on steam and want to keep and play my games on steam.
A online multiplayer could had made this game a huge hit for many years and instead we get one of their ppl tell as excuse that he likes it local because you cant hit other ppl online... really? I could see a endless line willing to slap him for that.

Still, the developers did manage to safe this game by making it simply amazing from graphic and gameplay to amazing level design.
The game allows you to play also the levels from Rayman origins but has also many bonus mini games that unless you are really bored, you wont probably play those much.

Multiplayer makes most games more fun but doesnt have effect on the whole playtrough so single player is just fine.

Pc controller work fine in my case.

So if you like quality games, you are a rayman fan and can tolerate Ubisofts flaws then the game is definitely worth it
