Rayman Origins

Auracore MediaWorks
8 March 2012
  • 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.
  • Cons: Difficulty spikes are annoying; can sometimes be hard to tell foreground from background.

  • 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. It's also one hell of a game and an old school experience that transports its players back in time – a time when consoles were connected with RF-units. To play Rayman Origins is to feel like a kid again. The grin; the joy; and the frustration; it's all in here.

Rayman Origins Review

22 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Raving Rabbids have been holding down the Rayman fort for the past few years now, but it’s about time the title character got back in on the action. Rayman Origins marks the triumphant return of the limbless protagonist, but this time in a more scaled-back fashion. The newest entry abandons the 3D world in favor of a more stylized and straightforward approach, and it’s all the better for it.
  • Pros: Imaginative level design, Responsive controls, Eye-popping art style
  • Cons: Lackluster local co-op, No support for online co-op

  • Summary: Rayman Origins delights and amazes at every turn. Everything from the art style to the characters to the settings is brimming with creativity, and while the platforming is definitely challenging, you won't be able to play this game without a huge smile on your face.
  • Pros: Hand-drawn animation is stunning, Unfettered creativity on display inside each pixel, Co-op adds competition and eases frustrations
  • Cons: Uneven checkpoints in places, No online co-op

  • Excerpt: has finally made it to the 3DS. It's taken its own sweet time, but the newest adventures of the loose-limbed nose-beast that defies rational explanation is now on the Nintendo handhelds.

Rayman : Origins

Web Wombat

  • Conclusion: Rayman: Origins flows from left to right through different challenges and across difficult terrain including rapid waters and varying winds delivering hours of instant fun. Initially, Origins is quite easy as it acclimatises the gamer to the controls and gameplay. It sure did trick us into believing the whole game would be a breeze. This isn't the case. The difficulty steadily climbs throughout the game with levels becoming somewhat more challenging as you progress.

  • Conclusion: On pensait Ubisoft perdu dans les limbes, préférant nous sortir des suites à Assassin's Creed et des mauvais jeux mettant en scène les Lapins Crétins… et pourtant ! L'éditeur français est de retour dans nos cœurs avec un Rayman Origins qui se révèle être au moins l'un des meilleurs jeux de l'année. Au départ prévu pour une sortie en plusieurs épisodes, c'est sous la forme d'un jeu complet à 60€ qu'il préfère nous revenir, et on ne regrette pas ce choix.

  • Summary: Rayman beviser at det overhovedet ikke behøver at være mere kompliceret at lave et godt spil i dag, bare det er troværdigt. RAYMAN ORIGINS, det holder totalt!

Rayman Origins

  • Conclusion: Ubisoft -Spiele f�r den DS oder den 3DS waren noch nie richtig gut. Man erinnere sich nur an C.O.P.: The Recruit , Rabbids 3D oder Splinter Cell 3D . An der Handheld-Abteilung an sich kann es nicht liegen, denn f�r die Vita sieht das alles schon wieder anders aus, sieht man sich beispielsweise das kommende, eigenst�ndige Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation an. Mehr Eigenst�ndigkeit h�tte ich mir auch f�r Rayman Origins gew�nscht.
  • Pros: Erstklassiges Jump'n'Run
  • Cons: Bleibt grafisch und vor allem beim Sound weit hinter den Möglichkeiten des 3DS zurück, Keine nennenswerten, 3DS-spezifischen Neuerungen, Fast schon zu spät erschienen
