  Hmmm... quite disappointed.

| | See all PaDeH88's reviews (1)

Game is bog standard, quite disappointed with all of the reviews as it was bigged up quite a lot. In hindsight though, I should have known what to expect, ITS RAY MAN! should have guessed that I wasnt going to be happy permanently running to the right haha.

It had much more of a Super Mario feel to it in my opinion. If Ray was busting around with an animal equivalent to Yoshi I might have been a bit more made up.

  Don't even think, just buy it.

There is a reason why this entirely 2D game managed to nab itself a boxed console release, or perhaps many:
-Smooth gameplay
-Chirpy yet clever Soundtrack
-Beautifully coloured HD visuals
-Challenging difficulty without becoming annoying
Whether you like the old ones or not, this game is for you, unless you've been totally engulfed by first person shooters and are no longer capable of playing brilliant games that fall under different categories.
First time I've touched the franchise since early playstation and I am not disappointed.
As nonsensical and happy as it is, there should to be more games like this.

this game is really fun! great sharp crisp graphics and an easy to pick up control type makes this game tons of fun, even if you dont like rayman the vivid colours and easy to play controls make this a lot of fun. you can pick it up, play it for 5 minutes then put it down, theres no need for deep thought you can just play it and have fun. did i mention the game is fun? theres tons to do and unlock aswell

  A Platformer That Puts the Fun Back Into Gaming

The first thing most gamers will notice upon starting Rayman Origins is the fantastic cartoon like graphics, fortunately it also the gameplay to back it up. As with most Rayman games Origins is side scrolling 2D platformer. Don't let that put off however as aside from arguably a few games in the Super Mario series it is full of more ideas than virtually any other game of its kind.

The basic idea of each level is to gather enough 'electoons' to unlock subsequent levels and challenges. Electoons are awarded simply for completing each level but more can be gained by finding secret areas, collecting the required amount of 'Lums' or racing to the end in under a set time. Each of these different goals allows the majority of the already well designed levels to be played in a variety of ways. On top of this added bonus levels can be unlocked that task the player with chasing a treasure chest non-stop through ever shifting terrain, mess up once and its back to the start.

Played in single player the game is certainly enjoyable but it really comes alive when played with a friend (up to four can play at once but any more than two on screen at one time can become a little too crowded). Working together to negotiate the games trickiest moments must rank amongst the very best offline multiplayer experiences on the current generation of consoles.

Aside from a few trial and error moments it is hard to really find any fault with Rayman Origins and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a title that puts the fun back into playing video games.

  a must have

Gamerevieuws dont lie, its a fantastic game, wonderfull platform game and with a co-op up to 4 players a great family or friends time.Add to this a timed lvl playthrough or hidden rooms for extra character unlocks, just brilliant. Just buy this game its even worth a 6 star rating. Great job Ubisoft bringing back this classic toon in a wonderfull new game.

  something for everyone

I have never played a rayman game but I this is great fun. Its like Mario for the xbox/ps3. The humour and animation is top notch. I am a 37 yr old gamer who mainly plays mwf3, uncharted etc and I can't get enough of this. I would recommend this to all, price is good to in fairness :-) ....
