Things that make this game as excellent as it is:
-Artistic Design
-Hand drawn Graphics
-Amazing Soundtrack
-Fast paced and superb movement
-Probably supports that weird ps3 controller you bought in a 2nd hand shop
-Replay value, weekly challenges and 100% completion
-Playing with others is chaotic but hilarious

The ONLY screw up with this game is UPlay, you may be at risk of your game not working because of Uplay not working correctly. By all means buy this game, you can refund if Uplay screws you over.

It's ok. There is lots to do in this 2D platformer. Good co-op. However, I am personally not a fan of the art style, and also, the gameplay for the main part of the game felt bland after a while so I burned out on this game fairly quickly.

Not quite as spectacular and hilarious as Legends... certainly still very playable and great fun, though, and still recommended as a very gaudy and generous platformer.

Despite the lack of online co-op, or any co-op at all on the PC version, it was a fun and fast-paced video game.

I've spent a lot of time playing the Wii U version, hence the low amount of play time as of the time I wrote this review.

Rayman Legends is a fantastic platformer that improves upon its predecessor in a lot of ways. The music levels never get old and the game has tons of replayability, especially if you're a completionist. It also looks just as beautiful, if not better than Origins.

I personally prefer this version over the Wii U, since the Murphy (the green dude you control w/ the gamepad) exclusive levels are a nightmare to play alone, as the secondary character is incredibly slow and is controlled by some awful AI.

Keep in mind that there's also a large collection of remastered versions of the levels from Origins. With that being said, if you're deciding between the two games, I would get Legends for sure (personally I would get both, but deciding b/w one or the other is perfectly reasonable).

The colorfull backrounds, the creative levels, fun gameplay and the great music is all what Rayman Legends accomplishes as a platformer. The game is great and cramed with many levels including many from the previous game, Rayman Origins. The game takes all the essences of what makes a platformer good and succeeded on using it to make this game amazing. It is like any old Rayman games but with 60fps and HD graphics. The art style of the game is eye candy for anyone that enjoys the very cartoony look of a game. The graphics is colorfull and bright and perfectly reflects the atmosphere given off by this game. Overall, everyone should have this great modern day platformer in their library.

Decent enough platformer with lots of unlocks. Quirky artstyle. Didn't get especially grabbed by it, but try it if it's on sale and after you've played Ori and Outland.

A fun platform game with lots of humor and good music. However the learning curve can be a bit steep.

This is one of the prettiest platformers I have played.

Also one of the chillest, which is weird since the original Rayman game was extremely difficult in several parts.
This one probably gets pretty hard in some optional parts, I guess, but at an initial level, it is quite easy and relaxing. No lives, no pressure.

Also, it has a mariachi version of Eye of the Tiger, in one of the musically synchronized levels, and that is just amazing and delightful.

Definitely pick this up if you have the least interest in pretty platformers.

Rayman Legends is a thing of beauty!

If you ever enjoyed 2D platform gaming like Super Mario Bros, or Donkey Kong Country you simply can't go wrong with this game. I would even go so far as to say this game is better.

The controls are very fluid and soon become second nature. Which is just as well because after a few easy introductionary levels the difficulty picks up. It's all very nicely balanced, though. Levels that may seem impossible at first become feasible and you'll find yourself zipping through them. The feeling of satisfaction when you're conquering another world is a joy.

The tunes are memorable. You'll find yourself humming them. The graphics are poetry in motion. Check the trailer and you'll see what I mean.

If there's any drawback to this game (I have well over 200 hours playtime in this and my kids (4 and 6) about 50 hours between them) it's the lack of a coherent story. But really, who needs a story to a game like this? Princess Toadstool has been kidnapped by Bowser time and time again without any formal complaint.

If you're into platformers, grab this game! You won't be disappointed.

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.

Faulty's scorecard :-

1) Essential purchase
2) Recommended purchase
3) Recommended purchase during a sale
4) Not recommended unless heavily discounted
5) Not even recommended for Steam game collectors

Out on a limb

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!
