Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition
Top Critic Average
Still the best non-Mario platformer ever made and a stunning work of imagination, but if anything this is the worst version so far – not the best.
Maybe I nitpicked Definitive Edition into oblivion, but there isn't a justification for such a wonky product that's the latest in a long line of ports.
One of the best platform games of the last years presented in an exceptional Nintendo Switch “suit”.

One of the best platformers that we've seen on a while, offering its best version.

This is very much the Wii U version with a few bells and whistles, but it's still one of the best non-Mario platformers of the last ten years, and that's definitely worth shouting about.
Great port of one of the best 2D Jump & Runs with cool Kung Foot tournament mode. Only the asymmetrical Koop mode of the Wii U version is missing.

Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition does not bring a whole world of difference compared to its original but what it does, it does well. Thanks to its fun and visually rich, varied worlds and to a long lifespan, this take of Rayman Legends will fall very well with the players, with the added advantage of handheld gameplay.

Rayman Legends is a masterful platformer that excels in almost every way. It's stunningly crafted levels, adorable visuals and excellent music all leave a deep, lasting impression.
Despite its 'Definitive Edition' moniker, the vast majority of what you get in the Switch version of Rayman Legends has been seen in every other edition. The only truly new features here are a complete character roster for the first time and a tournament mode for its football mini-game. That's not to say it's a bad game; that couldn't be further from the truth. It's still one of the best plumber-free platformers ever made, and its budget price means if you haven't played it before this is the perfect time to jump in. Just be warned: if you already got your fill on Wii U or any other system, there isn't really much here you won't have already seen.
Rayman Legends didn't age at all. It's still one of the most well-crafted and most gorgeous platformers you can play today, alone or with friends. But with only a few additions that don't change anything compared to the other versions, we can say we don't really understand how it feels "Definitive".
