A charming and inventive platformer that understands what makes the genre special, and never rests on its laurels.
Ubisoft has inched the needle past the excellent Rayman Origins, delivering a great package with action, time-based challenges, chaotic multiplayer, and more
Everything you loved about Rayman Origins is polished to a glistening sheen in this tremendously fun platformer.
I really wanted to like Rayman Legends -- but all the pretty art and good intentions in the world don't make a great game without a touch of restraint. Legends doesn't lack for neat ideas, but it needs more polish to be truly entertaining. And I certainly wouldn't complain if someone dropped the hard disk containing Murfy's stage data onto a bulk eraser.
It's a nearly flawless game you don't want to miss—especially if you own a Wii U.
Both visually and mechanically, Rayman Legends consistently sparks the imagination. The co-op play on the Wii U is something that really must be experienced, and while the implementation isn't a perfect fit on other platforms, it does little to hold the game back. While we certainly wouldn't advocate carbon copies, we hope Rayman Legends paints a vision for other 2D games to follow.
It's still fresh and tremendously funny. Keep in mind that the new features aren't worth a new buy if you played the previous versions. If this is your first time with Legends... Go get it! It's one of the best games on Switch.
