Rayman Origins

GamesRadar
27 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The visuals alone are enough to lull even the most seasoned gamer into a false sense of security. Vibrant colors abound, preposterous characters gambol and cavort with giddy abandon, and vivacious animation breathes life into the already-fecund levels. But don’t be fooled by Rayman Origins.
  • Pros: Lush, hand-drawn visuals, Sublime level design, Satisfying sound effects and music
  • Cons: Brutal difficultly, Unforgiving action and controls, Chaotic four-player co-op

Review - Rayman Origins Vita

Game.ie

  • Summary: As you may remember, Peter was more than a little bit fond of Rayman Origins when it hit full size consoles back in November 2011, calling it ‘nothing short of a work of art – both literally and figuratively’ and placing it at number 9 in its top 10 games of the year .

  • Summary: A jaunty platforming trip through a vibrant and dangerous world.
  • Pros: Classic platformer gameplay; variety of abilities unlocked as game goes on; beautiful visuals.

Rayman Origins (PSV) - Review

VGChartz
28 February 2012
  • Excerpt: In spite of spending most of my early years playing games like Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong Country , I never got into the Rayman series. Sure, I've played Rayman: Raving Rabbids and enjoyed it for the gimmicky mini-game compilation it was, but I had no desire to check out the 2D platforming...

Rayman Origins on the Vita remains every bit as silly and charming as its console counterparts.

GameSpot
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Rayman Origins hit consoles late last year and brought with it a delightful 2D platforming experience combining the best of old-school and modern game design. Now Ubisoft's limbless mascot has made his way to the PlayStation Vita, and the transition has been a smooth one.
  • Pros: Beautifully detailed art design, Absurdly charming sense of humor, Difficult portions never feel cheap, Precise, reliable controls, Plenty of variety.
  • Cons: Inconsistent bosses, Unlocking later levels requires scouring for collectibles, No co-op.

  • Summary: Once again, Rayman Origins is a 2D side-scrolling dream come, except this time it's on a smaller screen. One of the best and most beautiful games of last year returns on the PlayStation Vita for launch, and I had absolutely no problem playing it one more time for this review.

Rayman Origins Review

2 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Somewhere out there, in a leafy private estate, there's a place called The Bubsy the Bobcat Memorial Retirement Home. This is where all the mascots went at the end of the '90s. Step inside, and you'll find a crowd of familiar faces: Aero the Acro-Bat sits in the corner, muttering to himself.

  • Excerpt: Rayman Origins is unlike anything else on the market. Not only is it colorful, preposterous and manic, but it's a genuine rarity: a high resolution sidescrolling platformer released at retail.
