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.

This might be a side effect of having bought Undertale on the same day, but I kinda lost my appetite for this game after listening to too many of the intended-to-be-cute monster death sound clips. The game does look really nice, but along with some characters giving me vertigo while trying to track them, I found the game to be pretty shallow underneath, and not really worth all the overhead that UPlay makes you put on.

Regardless of the game's quality, though, I do find its local co-op feature to be extremely well designed. My sisters (ages 8 and 6) love it, and it is fun to play the game with them.

Coming from Rayman Origins I was expecting to see improvements from the old game, and boy was I right. For the most part it has better graphics than Origins, the controls are far more fluid and the addition of extra races, Murphy, and boxing glove powerup it really stood out beyond Origins, however, they removed the map system and went for a Mario 64 approach by using paintings to jump in. It's more organized this way but it doesn't make you feel like it's all in the same big world. For some reason I feel like the makers forgot this is a seperate game, as all the new stuff gets just thrown in your face without introduction/explanation, for instance the boxing glove. And just like that it also lacked quite a bit of story as there are 5 of the same nemesis all of the sudden for no reason. I was very happy to see some of the old characters from Rayman 1 return in Origins and was hoping to see some new ones in Legends as well. Sadly enough Murphy is all we got, no Ly, Clark, or robot pirates from Rayman 2. The nymphs from Origins were also nowhere to be found, instead we got random chicks (once again for no reason whatsoever). I will list in big lines the positive and negative aspects of the game:

Positive:
+ Smooth controls
+ Amazing artstyle and graphics
+ Broad variety of characters to play as
+ Intense fast phased platforming
+ Great amount of mobility
+ Good amount of levels
+ Increased difficulty as you progress

Negative:
- Close to no story
- Lack of explanation for a lot of things in the game
- Throws random things at you at parts
- Becomes repetitive after a while

In conclusion I recommend this game to all casual gamers who want some fun action packed gameplay and do not care about story. For the diehard Rayman fans I recommend Origins. For a part because it had much more story (the nymphs) and actual ending. For another part because it had more rememberable music, map and character evolution (Rayman gains new powers like wallrunning and fighting). Making it far more immersive. MrTheMarkoman out.

Absolutely amazing - fills the niche of contemporary AAA 2D platformers, and does so brilliantly.

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.

Shame that the best game Ubisoft could come up with didn't sell as well as they expected.

I played the demo for this game once and fell in love, I now finally bought the game and it's everything I wanted and more.
It's a great platformer and it doesn't try to just be the game it was decades ago.

The game has a nice learning curve, replayability, a lot of levels, beautiful art style and level design and tons of things you can unlock. It's interesting that, even though the game has a lot of content, it doesn't force you to go through everything. If you are good enough to beat harder levels, you can unlock them very early and speedrun it.

I just can hope Ubisoft has plans for new games.

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.
