rayman - rabbids= EPICNESS
for all of you thinking of getting this game becuase you like liked the rabbids, DONT buy this it doesnt (hopefully) have any minigames and is based on a action plot and better not get messed up like rayman "4". back to subject this game looks epic although i think you need 4 players to get 100% completion :(
Could be Better
I got this game the first day it came out. I was hoping it would be good. It was. When I started playing, it was cool and colorful. When I got into the game, I figured out that it was just like Mario. You wlak in a straight line . Sometimes you can go back but you can not come back forword. You do not have special abilities like Mario tho. I am telling you first hand, BUY MARIO INSTEAD.
A cool remake of a classic game.
First off I want to say, I have decided to start uploading images on my reviews. The images I post are related to what the game is about. An example, if it's a classic game like this one, I will post a picture from Bit.Trip. If it's a music game I will post pictures of music notes. A shooting game, pictures of guns. You get it right? I think this game will be great! It is going to be an excellent remake, I'm sure of it.The best new feature is multiplayer. That will be awesome. It will be bringing back the classic 2-D platforming, it will not have rabbids, thankfully. Those rabbids were starting to annoy me. I hope it also has an online multiplayer. That would be cool.
Rayman is back
rayman used to be in alot of platforming games, but then he came to the rabbid games. i like those games, but im glad the the real rayman is coming back.
I didn't really give this game much attention after playing the demo on my PS3, but when I got it for Wii and my wife and I started playing it together I realized the awesomeness I was missing. We both love the old side scrollers like Mario, Sonic and DK and this game is like all three of those combined. The characters are goofy looking, but don't let that throw you like it did me. The art style in the game is simply amazing and the music is some of the best and catchy I've heard in a game in years. The gameplay is some of the most fluid I've seen in a sidescroller since Castlevania Symphony of the night. The amount of levels in the game is crazy too. Just when I thought I was about to beat it I got thirty more levels or more unlocked lol. For 20 bucks you can't go wrong. The fact that it's got 4 player mp makes it a must for all ages too. I'm simply in love with it and I haven't been able to say that about a game since FF8 and Symphony of the Night on the original playstation.
Rayman is back, baby!
It has been nearly a decade since the last proper Rayman game (that being "Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc", because no one cared for the rabbids really.) and they could not have made a better way to celebrate this underrated hero than "Rayman Origins"! Rayman Origins is one of the best 2D platformers around (frankly, I hated New Super Mario Bros. Wii) and has some of the most beautiful graphics around! The game is hand-drawn and it feels like you are playing a animated film! The game is hard, yet it doesn't reach Mario Galaxy 2-level difficulty and can be enjoyed by gamers of any age. This game is indeed, a masterpiece.
No arms, No legs, and No Rabbids!
Gaming icons come and go. Legends like Crash, and Spyro fade into obscurity and bargain bins, but at least people remember them for what they once were. For those who don't remember Rayman, there were 3 great platformers, a short-lived animated series (it was dumb, but at least he got a show), and several racing games, Rayman fell into a Rabbid-induced coma. But fret not my friends, because he's awake again, and this is possibly his best outing yet. Originally planned as a downloadable title, Rayman Origins is sort of the reboot for the series. Except unlike most reboots, it's awesome. Origins is one of the best titles to grace the recent 2D revival, and possibly one of the best sidescrollers of all time. The gameplay is hard to describe in words, so just hop on over to youtube or watch the video above. Basically it takes the best parts of Mario and Sonic, and incorpates them into the first Rayman. There are 10 worlds to explore, but the first four are lacking bosses, which was kind of weird, but whatever. Rayman can jump, swim, glide, swing, fly, wall run, and wall jump, and the levels take advantage of all these skills quite frequently, so it never feels dull or too easy, even when you're breezing through the earlier levels. The controls are perfect. No motion controls, and the movements are spot on. I never once died because of loose controls or cheap levels. The game supposts three controller types, all of which work flawlessly. For the most part the music was great, but i did find the music in the water levels to be annoying, and there is a scrapped theme for the final boss, which sounds so epic, i can't fathom why they scrapped it. Oh yeah, i almost forgot, the water levels in Origins are actually fun. Although its called "Origns" there's not much of a story involved. Rayman and his friends wake the dead with their snoring, and cause a bunch of nightmares to be born. So they fight the nightmares, save some provacatively dressed nymphs, and face off with a Mr. Dark impersonator. The story is really watered down from what was originally planned, which i found to be the only real flaw. That and the fact that the camera is zoomed out a bit too much at times. You can play with your self or with up to four players, but either way this game is a blast.
Pretty Good Platformer
I was really surprised to find that this game is very good. I've played an hour or two of it, and it's already one of my favorite of the genre. The art style is unique, and so are the locations and the enemies. The controls are pretty smooth as well.
He's Back, and Better Than Ever!
This game is so much fun! I love how the levels are short, yet challenging. The storyline is awesome! I definitely recommend this to Rayman fans, and kids who want an action - packed adventure.
best game on wii!!!
This game is just awsome. The gameplay and controls are perfect. The hand drawn grapics are just amazing. ubi art frame work did a great job on doing the grapics. The sound is really clear, the music is awsome but not as good as the zelda series. There is so much playable characters, time challanges, and medals to unlock in this game that means that there is a lot left to do even after the end credits roll. But why is it $19.99?
