Originally revealed as a Wii U exclusive and later adopting various other platforms, Ubisoft's Rayman Legends sets out to one-up what was offered in Rayman Origins, continuing with the unique and beautiful art style rarely seen in today's 2D platformers. Legends offers a number of new challenges and various new puzzles to navigate your way through, but also throws in an extra 40 of the original Origins levels to boot.
To help better understand just what Legends has to offer for platforming enthusiasts is our own Jickle, who believes that this may just be the "best non-Nintendo 2D platformer" he has ever played.
It combines the simple elegance, bountiful content and colourful enjoyment of so many indie works with the production values and design genius of the generation’s best Triple-A titles into a game that feels fresh and contemporary, but also mindful of what has come, and worked, before. It’s a joyous marvel of game design, and one of the very, very few straight-up 2D platformers out there with a solid claim to Mario’s crown.Check out his full review over here.
