Rayman Origins is the wonderfully revitalised game that brings the classic Rayman legacy back to life, fifteen years since the first launch of the franchise. The game follows on the saga's traditional 2D side scrolling platform gameplay, yet has completely revamped the graphics, making the brilliantly unique world and characters vibrant and colourful. Explore once again the magical lands of Rayman's world in this innovative new game, with a little help from your friends.
The story begins with Rayman and his friends relaxing in their home the Glade Of Dreams, when they accidentally disturb a little old Granny from the Land of the Livid Dead. In retaliation, the Granny unleashes an evil army of Darktoons and various other evil creatures into the Glade, where they cause absolute mayhem and hold captive all the Electoons and Nymphs. The Fairy Council request the help of Rayman to help save the world and rescue the Electoons. Play as Rayman in solo campaign with his friends Globox and the two ingenious Teensie wizards, which allows up to four people in drop in drop out multiplayer playing his friends, as you go out to restore peace in the Glade Of Dreams.
The game has expanded on all of Rayman's quirky and various abilities to apply them to all the unique levels and environments you will experience. These abilities include running up walls, mid air gliding with the use of his Hairly Copter, shrinking himself, swimming, diving, and more. These become unlocked the more you progress through the game, each new world you conquer giving you an ability to learn, and definitely come in useful when you want to discover secret areas in levels. Certain levels unlock time trials, which means you have to repeat the level in a set time; when completed properly this allows you to free more Electoons, and you can even earn trophies for the fastest time. There are also incredibly fast-paced and fun treasure chest levels to unlock, where you have to speed chase a moving treasure chest through a dangerous course that will put your skills to the test. These treasure levels give you ruby teeth and, should you complete them all, grant you access to a whole other world: The Stars Of The Livid Dead Tour.
Some old fan favourite aspects appear in the game as well, such as riding the mosquito through certain levels, collecting Lums (which are Rayman's form of currency), and epic boss fights. New and exceptionally terrifying bosses appear in this game, for example a giant carnivorous plant! There are also over a hundred new characters to meet, 60 levels to complete, and a vast array of extra bonus material and content to unlock. Enjoy this wonderfully fun and colourful game once more, and collect pieces of the Glade's history throughout, so you can discover the truth of Rayman's Origins. (Cat Emerson)

Rayman has long one of the best 2D platformer series. Origins is no exception. What did suprise me, was the level of challange and the ramp up speed. The simplistic nature of the game is strongly contrasted by its colorful and ever changing level variety. The levels are vibrant well though out.. Origins is a really strong piece of platforming action, which can easily be recommended to those into the genre.
Rayman Origins is a very fun game, you must save the Electoons by Darktoos in the Glade of Dreams. You can play with up to 4 friends and this pays homage to the classic Rayman, it is much easier and playable, consists of 10 worlds, one of the most beautiful and challenging. In addition there is a secret world and very demanding that you unlock collecting all 10 teeth of the skull, obtainable in mini levels, 1 tooth for every world. Levels are like the previous Rayman titles,you have to save all 246 Electoons finding three cages in each level, completing challenges and collecting time up to 350 Lums. These challenges are optional to enrich the gaming experience.
Best platform of the gen. Only 2 dimensions on screen but all the old fashioned taste of a real masterpiece. Astonishing level design, fluent game-play, terrific humour and real challenges that need precision,focus and imagination to be accomplished. It is just as entertaining now as it was when I was a child and that is exactly what video games are made for.
It's been seven good years of gaming, but I never get tired of platform games like Rayman Origins. I really miss the 16 bit era, and when I get the chance to play 2D games, I have an amazing time. Rayman is one of those games. The art of this title is just stunning. It has great artwork, great graphics, a comic and an entertaining story, even without dialogue. If you want hours of simple, great game play, Rayman Origins is one of the best games of this generation.
Rayman Origins is not to be underestimated. I haven't finished this game yet but I have unlocked all but the last world. The game play in this is great and very challenging. You have to work very hard to get a top score, but as there are no lives you can die as much as there is danger provided. At times it can really make you cry with laughter from its utter silliness. This game has so much going for it. With 60 levels, for the price you can't go wrong with this game, especially given it's for up to four players. It also works great as a single player experience. It has superb environments that are hand draw but look as if they were expertly crafted on a PC. I would recommend this game to anyone, as this is a instant classic. Rayman is back and here to stay.
Rayman Origins is a very unique looking game, with a dash of humor and a signature style. The repeat game play, in terms of collecting jewels, does get a bit tiresome after a while. However the overall experience brings me back to the game again and again. This may well be the best cartoon platformer of the 7th console generation.
Rayman Origins is one of those games that you must play. It has it all, it's fun, it's unic and the game features local four-player co-operative play in more than 60 level to explore and many replay value. If you had a bad day play Rayman Origins it will cheer you up . It's for all ages
Ive been playing games for over 20 years now and once in a while there comes a game that sits you in front of the screen, hooks you up and gets your fingers stuck to that favorite controller of yours. Rayman Origins is one of these few titles. It takes you back to the days when games werent about the best graphics, motion controls or massive amounts of players whacking at each other. The story: All is good in the Glade of Dreams. Rayman and his friends are chilling out, relaxing, each one in his own style. Each one with a different beat. Now, it all would have been good if the Old Granny from the Land of the Livid Dead couldnt hear all that noise. As vengeful as she is she unleashes an army of Darktoons and other evils onto the Glade. They capture all Nymphs and Electoons and our heroes are off to the rescue. The gameplay: Rayman Origins is a 2D side scrolling Jump and Run. The best part is that you can play it with up to four players. You will journey through several realms each one with its own environment, enemies, soundtrack and features. In each new realm you will learn a new ability which will change the way you play. Every realm is made up of several separate levels in which you and your friends will have to free the Electoons in order to advance further. To spice things up, each level has several challenges which vary from collecting the maximum amount of Electoons, to a time challenge, to the challenge of who will gather the most Electoons. The setting: This is where Rayman Origins really stands out from the crowd. There are just a couple of games with such intense humor built into them, yet leaving them playable by children. Cut scenes are hilarious, the animations of the characters are full of detail and all levels are full of color and tiny features that are just for fun. The team has developed so many details just to put a smile on your face. For instance instead of just waiting for the level to load, you and and your buddies can smack the smiles of those legless heroes of yours. Conclusion: This is a game for the entire family, a game to share with your friends no matter how old you are. A game worth your money.
With all the 2D platformers that I've played for the past 10 years, this has got to one of the best! The art style is superb, the sound design is as good as it gets with cinematic quality music and quirky sfx, this will appeal to all ages. Marry this with varied game-play mechanics and it's difficult not to be drawn in. Lots of challenging levels mean you'll be playing this for some time before you've completed the whole thing as all games nowadays lots of achievements and costumes are buried within to keep you playing. It was worth every penny!
