Rayman Legends Review: A Shot of Joy Straight to Your Brain
18 September 2013
Excerpt: The adventure begins after Rayman and friends awake from a century-long sleep that leads to nightmares taking over the land. Once again, you’re tasked with saving the dimwitted Teensies and shiny Lums that act as a currency of sorts.
Conclusion: It just requires jumping on for 30 minutes or so every day to do the daily challenges. This achievement WILL get extremely difficult when the community dies down (or if Ubisoft shuts down the servers) so get it while the getting is good.
Excerpt: Two years ago, Rayman Origins hit every platform imaginable and dazzled with a combination of slick gameplay, inventive level design, and stunning visuals that made it the definitive 2D platformer of the generation.
