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.

Rayman is back for real. Just a platform game, but a successful one, especially the music levels that are really great.

Had a ton of fun with this game. Didn't make much use of the multiplayer, but it still felt social. We'd pass the controller around and take turns when one of us got stuck. Great game.

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.

Almost everything about this game, when it comes to platforming terms is perfect. The graphics and gameplay was something to look at and had a much shorter delay time then Gabe newell's lunc-... The HL2 trilogy... Ubisoft outdid themselves once again for making another great recovery from that raving rabbids horror show, that nearly destroyed rayman. However, that logging in to ubisoft garbage was quite annoying and have made access a little more complicated...
Think back to other Rayman greats like Rayman 3: The Hoodlum Havoc or Rayman M. You HAVE the disc, you GOT the disc! You can do anything with it. Except using it as toliet paper like CoD. This game's whimsical structure was quite charming, but could have might had bosses that connects to the story and maybe not always giants. And an actual final boss next time. 9/10

Mario ain't got nothing on Rayman Legends. Slamming music, tight controls, eye-bleedingly astounding art direction, 4 player-same-screen-co-op on PC. Show up for the charm and amazing aesthetics. Stay for the super-hard-core platforming action. RESCUE ALL THE TEENSIES!

Hands down one of the most finely crafted platformers I've ever come across. You owe it to yourself to check out Rayman Legends. Just make sure to rebind Murphy's context button. It's horribly placed. =D

However, there's a pretty big asterisk to this review: Like most Ubisoft games, this game requres you to maintain a Ubisoft Uplay account in order to run the game. I don't care, personally, but a lot of people are turned off by draconian DRM measures that Ubi has put in place. Making matters even more confusing, Ubi is evolving Uplay into its own digital distribution platform ala Steam. So it's like Steam-ception. It's a Steam within a Steam, albiet a Steam that is geared towards Ubi's publisher proclivities. So, to recap, you have to download a digitial distribution service through your digital distribution service in order to play the game. Like I said, doesn't bother me, but I know it sure as hell bothers a lot of people.

If you're interested in Rayman, try Rayman Origins instead, it was better in almost every way: a lot less cheap tactics, more appealing level design. Will always remeber gourmet, underwater and mountain levels from Origins but can already hardly remeber any levels from Legends except Rock Castle ("Whoa-a-a, Black Betty, BAM-BA-LAM").
Also, the game was meant to be Wii U exclusive at first, so there is some gameplay functionality clearly intended for a touch screen.
In conclusion, Origins: 9/10, Legends: 7/10.

Good platforming fun. Has great local co-op for up to four people, rotating weekly challenges, and a whole ton of other content. Filled to the brim with good times. The worst thing about this game is U-play, which, for 98% of people, is not problematic at all. If you're in the 2%, this game will suck to play. I had no problems with it, and it continues to be a complete non-problem for me, so I heartily endorse picking this up.

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.

I've never been a rayman fan, but I decided to give Rayman Legends a try. And wow, i must say is one of the best plattform I played on PC. Very responsive, great gfx, excellent sound/music, and every level feels different and innovative. Definitely worth the price!

This bad boy has local co-op, which is excellent. It also has a decent chunk of the game Rayman Origins included as unlockable goodies. It is a solid platformer in the vein of New Super Mario Bros., and the art style and music are both excellent.

One negative is uPlay, but it hasn't ever caused any issues for me.

Definite grab if you're itching for a platformer.

I love platformer games. They're such a nostalgia blast, taking me back to the old days where I was parked on the living room floor, 5 ft. from the TV trying master that epic double jump without falling in the hole for the 10th time in a row. Rayman Origins came along and proved that that old school platforming action could still be viable, fun and challenging. Now, Rayman Legends has managed to come along and actually improve on the foundation that Origins laid!

Rayman Legends packs a ton of fun in one single package. You have unlocks to collect, in the form of lums, characters, monsters and even old Origins levels. You have challenging platformer action. You have varied platformer action! You have a great sense of humor. You have a great art style to make it all shine. It's really great.

Sometimes, games of these types reach a point where the game becomes too difficult. It makes the experience nothing but frustrating and then the fun falls off fast. Even Origins suffered from this from time to time. In Legends, they've managed to find a perfect balance in the difficulty. Most maps are challenging, without becoming anger inducing. You might have to take two or three tries and a particular jump, but the pattern will click. These types of games can also suffer from repetition, but Legends break that up as well. You'll find the puzzle style changing from level to level, even within the same groups, keeping the game feeling fresh and entertaining.

Beyond all the platformer action, I'm really impressed with the style and art direction going on in the game. The end levels in each section doing something really great in how the tie in the games music with the game play. This really stood out when I was playing a boss level to a Rayman-esque rendition of Ram Jam's "Black Betty". As I came to obstacles, it because clear my jumps were timed to the drum beat of the song. As you progressed, hearing that familiar back beat, you noticed the entire level was timed to it. I couldn't help by smile and play the level over a couple times, just to marvel at the fun of it all. They do this on every level and it's an attention to detail that you don't see to often!

So, should you snag Rayman Legends? Yes. Yes you should. Don't even debate it. Really, this game is worth it at any price. Definitely bring your game pad though, I can't imagine pulling this game off with a keyboard and mouse.
