Tons of content.
Joyfully exuberant mood.
Background art and parallax scrolling is gorgeous.
The musical levels are infrequent, but delightful.
Lacks online co-op.
Initially confusing interface.
Occasional sections that ramp up difficulty a little sharply.
Level design lacks the magic of Origins.
A tough game, but one which doesn't offer much penalty for death.

They’re just like I remember, but with Legends’ improved visuals. Rayman Legends would be a generous enough package without them, but between these additions and the diabolical challenge stages, there’s enough to keep you happily occupied for a long time to come.90

How far Rayman’s come. Despite Ubisoft seemingly having the bizarre notion that Rayman is a household name popular enough for them to launch 2D platformers against some of the biggest games of the year (including their own - Assassin’s Creed...90

Are we all completely sick of GTA yet? Have you had enough of the near 24/7 coverage about Rockstar's latest and greatest? Well Ubisoft may well have the exact opposite of GTA for us in the form of Rayman Legends... The follow up to 2011's...-

For the Rayman completist - we're sure there must be such a thing - Legends is the ultimate package. It's a wild ride through the unhinged imagination of Michael Ancel and his team that often threatens to out-Nintendo Nintendo. Murder-free,...80

Wacky, zany, madcap - these are words which provide a terrible disservice to how ambitious, creative and joyful Rayman Legends is. Suddenly, one of games' oldest genres seems as fresh as a hallucinogenic daisy.90

Confidence exudes from Rayman Legends. The game juggles a staggering amount of absurd content. A flaming eyeball, a hero without any limbs, and a frog-like fly named Murfy all exist in the same level. Only the certainty of craftsmanship holds the game...90

In another time and place, another world from our own, Mario didn't achieve the stranglehold he has over platform games here. The super-polished and - whisper it - somewhat sanitised, edgeless Nintendo formula didn't corner the market, and...90

The endless runner stages don’t live up to the excellence of the platforming, but it’s hard to complain about their inclusion when their absence wouldn’t have dramatically impacted the amount of content. Clearly designed for and best experienced on the Wii U, it’s a rare non-exclusive killer app that should be purchased immediately to ensure its franchise lives a long and productive life.90
