Summary: first time I have played any Rayman games and I think it is absolute fun! I don't know if better or worse than previous games, but I recommend it for everyone! I am 32 and I have always been a PC gamer, not a hardcore one, but I like games like darksiders, diablo, prototype, crysis, games about dirt bikes, rally, star wars games, etc. and I was looking for something like a Mario Bros for PC, some 2D adventure, and I am really happy I found this one!
Summary: First, let me just recommend playing the game with friends. I was overjoyed to find that this game allows up to 4 people to play locally, which is a nice but uncommon feature in PC games. You can use up to 4 controllers (I used a combo of wired and wireless 360 controllers), and with this game, the more the merrier.
Summary: This game was a surprise for me, I grabbed it on Black Friday from Amazon - Digital, downloading/installation was smooth and simple, my first time using it, I was impressed. The game itself is great, gorgeous art, vivid colors, responsive controls, jamming music and a cooky world. This even gives the plumber a run for his money.
Summary: "Rayman Origins" is quite possibly the most fun I've ever had playing a video game! I play all the mainstream games (Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Gears, MGS, etc.), but this game just might best them all. What I love about it is the pure whimsy. This game is light hearted, beautifully animated, amusing, and COLORFUL. Games have been bleak and dark for so long now, this is a refreshing return to a time when games were more innocent in nature.

Summary: Finally taking a break from being overshadowed by demented Rabbids, Rayman finally stars in another platforming adventure. And BOY was this an unexpected turnout! There were a lot of times in which I thought this was too good to be true. No way could a game have such amazing 2D visuals, a gorgeous soundtrack, and incredible gameplay to match with everything alike. It would have to be a beyond-MIRACLE to obtain something like that.
Summary: I love Rayman Origins and all the previous versions of Rayman over the years. Always double check the specification though to be certain your computer can play it. Great game for kids, addictive with wonderful graphics, can't stop playing!
Summary: Rayman has never been the same since the first game for PS1, it went downhill and it was one of my favourite games. But it has definitely redeemed itself with Origins, the animation is very stylised, the music is absolutely fantastic and the levels are very fun and interesting and completely different each time.
Summary: We've had this game for almost three months now and it's getting to the point were it's looking like I'm going to buy a spare PC for my kids, as I can't get near mine once they realise it's switched on. They are 4,5 and 8yo and would play happily on this game for hours if we'd let them. With an Xbox360 controller connected for each of them they can all play together at the same time and us parents get some peace and quiet.
