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 Origins impressed me a lot. I don't know who did all those backgrounds, characters and their animations, but these people are real professionals. The visuals are so beautiful that you won't be able to find any small prop which lacks attention to detail. Awesome job! Game play-wise, it's a great platformer. Maybe it's a bit hard in some levels, but passing those is really satisfactory. Music and sounds are extremely good too. It's recommended to everyone.

Great game for my 6 year old kids and the whole family. Been playing for more than 10 hours, and still not finished. Excellent graphics 1080p, nice music. More controllers more fun, we play mostly 2 players mode, and laugh all the time. Must have this one, and zavvi has the lowest price.

I´ve bought this game because i liked the demo and it was ok, and with the price i thought "why not"? Now that i've played the game for several hours, i can really say: this game it's great!! Its one of the best platforms in years, and, imho, the best of the current console gen. It reminds you of old times and games like Donkey Kong Country. Shot story: great game, buy it if you like old school games.
