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)

Me and my girlfriend loved this game. She even changed her mind about playing games.
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 good game, lots of interesting ideas and idiosyncratic graphics within a normal platforming structure. I haven't played multiplayer with this but could imagine it being a lot of fun with friends and family.. Recommended.
Rayman Origins is a classic game, like the old, funny, beautiful, to play together and to enjoy it. Buy it without hesitation, you will not regret it.
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 perfect game for kids, with new levels and a lot of experience.
