Rated 9 out of 10 by Pizzaparty78 Casual gamer? Gotta get this!
This game is awesome! I've had it for just about a week now, and I don't think I'm even 75% through the game! There are so many characters to unlock too! It is really a great game for any gamer, casual and kids especially. The sound is pretty nice, but I had to turn it up quite a bit to actually hear it well. One of the best things about the game is how there are secret entrances to get more electrons, which then makes it so then when you finish the level, you can always go back and try to find the other secret entrances. The graphics are outstanding in my opinion, I was really surprised at how good they were. I really like how they incorporated the touch screen, but at times it can be hard to pop those bubbles when trying to control something. All the cool powers he gets through the game are pretty cool, and how they have specific levels for each power is pretty awesome. Overall, this game is a must-have for anyone who wants a fun, casual game that can last them a while and deserves great praise for its outstanding graphics.
Rated 9 out of 10 by mitchinator Among the Top 5 Games of 2011
Let me say this before I start a tiny rant: This is the best platforming that I have ever played. It is a bold, but true statement.This game is honestly amazing, and though it is set to a younger audience, it is still enjoyable for everyone. However, there is one thing that is bad about the game. It does not have co-op. If this game allowed you to play with your friends, it would be incredible. The reason being, is that levels are designed and built like they are meant to be played together, not alone. Another reason why it would be good to have a partner, is because the game gets very challenging at some points. Now that's out of the way, so I can discuss the positives of Rayman: Origins. Firstly, it is beautiful. The frame rate is spectacular, and the 2-d graphics are downright gorgeous. Loading screens are also a breeze, so you can go this game without even waiting more than five minutes. Gameplay is sharp and takes a long time to fully master. Controls are incredible, characters are awesome, (not Mass Effect good) and there is still a hilarious storyline, even without dialogue or subtitles. So, I guess my point is that I really liked Rayman: Origins. I thought it had great gameplay, awesome visuals, and addictive levels. Though the game is set back from the lack of multiplayer, I still highly recommend you buy this fun game.

I'll be getting a vita till' my birthday in late may, and I have to say I won't miss this. It'll be in my E and E+10 library of my vita games, including rayman origins, lbp, little deviants, modnation racers, wipeout 2048, and stardust delta. I think this will be my favorite game in my library with lbp, since I equally enjoyed them on ps3. Oh, and spider boy [the guy who wrote a preview below] I have an awnser. Rayman Origins is the one. If you have money to buy one or two more, get little big planet and little deviants [they're all equally awesome I can't miss even one of them].
Rated 1 out of 10 by nintendosuckstrolololo I agree with CameoDrumMan
This game is insanely boring. You literally walk left and right and that's about it. I don't see how anyone can be entertained by this game. The co-op(which I just remembered is NOT in this Vita version) was only fun when trolling with your friends, and the visuals aren't even that good. For 2D art, they look alright, but we live in a generation where 3D art is what looks nice, so keeping this game in 2D really makes it suffer and look old. Overall, please skip out on this title. Trolololololo but literally do not get this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by konrad Best Side Scroller Since Mario
I couldn't believe how much I liked this game. As the title states, its the best side scroller I have played since Mario and I am not even joking. The game looks great, has excellent music and sounds and plenty of characters to choose from and has descent challenges as well. If you in any way like side scrolling adventure games you definitely will not regret picking this game up. Well, unless you have something to do. In that case stay away from this game since it is so addicting =D
Rated 8 out of 10 by Spartacus073 Great Game
As someone that didn't buy this for a console and just have it for the PS Vita, I have to say the game is really fun. The graphics are amazing for a platformer. The sounds are perfect for the game as well. The developers did a good job in mixing in the touch screen without making it seem like they tried to find a use for it. My son enjoys playing it as well. The only downfall is that it only allows one saved game :(

This game looks awesome, However, considering I have the console version (which is also extremely fun when your playing with friends) I have over heard that this version will not have any multiplayer or cross-play support.That saddens me because the game deserves so much more than just a ghost mode...Looks like ill have to just buy the 3ds version for now.
Rated 9 out of 10 by girlsmom Love It
I love this game. It was the first game I bought to go with my Vita and play it almost everyday. The graphics are great and the music is pretty cute too. I grew up playing Mario on the NES so I truly love side scrollers and this is one for the ages. Probably the best game I've played in a while. If you are debating on whether or not to pick this one up definitely go for it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by NiceGamer675 Sony fearsome third party support
I'm super excited for the PS Vita , with Rayman , Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom heck ! Even Mortal Kombat is coming for the Vita. Judging by what I have seen , the PS Vita will be a huge threat for the Nintendo 3DS technologically and in the gaming side . There's a lot of variety in the library and thats very important for a console launch .
Rated 9 out of 10 by G4MEKritiq Side Scrolling @ its Best!
Not to much to say here but if you dig games like Mario from back in the day or love jumping into castle crashers... undoubtedly my fav game on the vita. Bummer though it doesn't have multiplayer like its big console brethren, but if you're anything like me you never needed friends to fall in love with games in the first place.
