Delightful, frantic side-scroller with cartoony violence.

Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends is one of my all-time favourite games. Each level is unique and exciting, and overall just a complete blast to play, especially with friends. Some levels are accompanied by music that you can use as a guide for what to do, such as jumping on a particular note. These levels are insanely fun, and a large part of what makes Rayman Legends so great. On top of that, the game looks beautiful, runs well and is pretty much glitch-free. In addition, the controls are easy to learn and work well on all platforms. If you're looking for an exciting and fun game to have a laugh with your friends over, I highly recommend Rayman Legends. It's given me many, many hours of enjoyment with more on the way. 9/10 on your own, 9.5/10 with friends.

Is It Any Good?

Yes, it's a blast for the entire family. Along with accessible controls and great graphics and animation, most of the platforming stages are well thought-out, providing some fun, varied, and often challenging ways to tackle a level. This diversification helps keep things fresh. Plus each of the characters you can play as offers their own unique ability, so changing around is fun. Even better than playing alone is exploring with some friends beside you, cooperatively -- four, in total, for most platforms but a fifth on the Wii U version (as "Murfy") -- as each player takes control over a different character. There's also the option to play online with others. While the music stages aren't as entertaining as the action-filled platforming stages, overall the latest Rayman adventure is a delight.
