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.
