Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends review

Robert Hathorne at

There’s a special place in my heart for platformers that recall my fondest gaming memories. Two years ago, I didn’t think anything would knock Rayman Origins off the top of that warm, fuzzy heap – and nothing has, until Rayman Legends.

The hand-drawn visuals are in every way improved – crisper, cleaner and more charming. Unlike Origins, you have all your core abilities from the outset. Gliding and swimming provide more freedom of exploration in early levels and this has prompted Ubisoft to come up with more interesting ideas as the game goes on.

Rayman Legends launch trailer is as lovely as you'd expect

Look, I enjoy brutal, senseless violence as much as the next cynically desensitised 20-something jerk. Even so, just look at this thing! Are you even allowed to put this many colours into a game without some sort of special permit? If not, we'll have to hide this Rayman Legends launch trailer from the fun police, else they will definitely confiscate it for being so damn happy.

Rayman Legends has been announced for PC, just weeks before its release date of August 30th. The desktop version of the colourful, gorgeous platformer will arrive at the same time as the console ones, and if you pre-order it at the UbiShop you'll get the 91% good Rayman Origins thrown in for free.
