Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii U

Rayman comes to Wii U with a new adventure. Michel Ancel, celebrated creator of Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, and the Raving Rabbids, brings his innovative creativity to this exciting platform. Rayman Legends makes full use of the power of the Wii U. With the Wii U GamePad controller, discover new ways to platform with its touch-based gameplay, gyroscope technology, and even the ability to extend your playing experience when the TV is off. Additionally, the power of the machine has helped pave the way for more detailed graphics and lighting.

Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world, and the adventure begins. The gang must run, jump and fight their way through each world to save the day and discover the secrets of every legendary painting.

Game Features

  • Wii U Showcase: Rayman Legends takes full advantage of the Wii U and its controller's capabilities. Use the touch screen to take out enemies, manipulate platforms, cut ropes to clear a path and much more. With the gyroscope technology, you can move rotating platforms and much more.
  • The Game Must Go On: The Wii U allows you to keep playing the game even when your television is off. Continue Rayman's adventure on the screen of the Wii U's wireless GamePad controller.
  • 5-Player Co-op Gameplay: Now more players can join in on the fun. With four Wii Remotes and the Wii U GamePad controller, up to five players can play at once. At any time if someone wants to leave or join in, the game will continue without interruption.
  • 3D Boss Battles: The bosses have a big advantage over Rayman’s gang: an extra dimension. Dragons and other epic creatures can attack from all angles, so you’ll have to be on top of your game to defeat them.
  • New Challenges: Connect with your friends through a variety of challenges that will test your skill and speed. Check the leaderboards to see where you rank around the world.
  • Rayman Rocks: Jump to the beat of a drum, punch to the bass line, even zip-line during a guitar sustain. Timing and rhythm are the key to beat these maps set to music. See if you have what it takes to be a Platforming Hero.
  • UbiArt Engine Advancements: The UbiArt engine has expanded its abilities to now include 3D gameplay elements, a new lighting design, and a new rendering system which take Rayman's graphics to the next level.
  • The Award-Winning Team Is Back: The legendary team of decorated artists, designers and composers are teaming up again to create new worlds, new characters and a new soundtrack.

Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I must admit, I almost didn't buy this game new. I remember trying to buy this as soon as my local *cough cough* opened on its original release date in February only to be turned away. The story is well known by now: rather than release the COMPLETE Wii-U version first and then port it to the other systems later, Ubisoft decided to make us Wii-U owners wait so they could port (again, I emphasize) a COMPLETE Wii-U game to the other consoles, which I (and apparently the vast majority of people on the internet) thought was poor form on Ubisoft's part. However, Michel Ancel, the genius behind masterpieces like Beyond Good & Evil and the creator of Rayman, and the rest of the development team who worked on this have been a real class act in this situation, and they do deserve support, so I broke down and bought this game right away. After all, I loved Rayman Origins so much, surely this game must at least be as good, right? Was it worth the extra 8 months of sitting on my hands to play this game (and nearly 12 months of delays overall)? You better believe it, and to be honest, I'd say an 8-month wait while being beaten with sticks would have been justified by just how incredible this game is.

Rayman Origin's story was minimal at best, but it set up the action well enough, a flimsy but hilarious premise though it was. Rayman Legends isn't much deeper, but I actually find its plot set-up even more zany and even strangely epic.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Holy macaroni... what a vivid, imaginative, and colorful universe this limbless fellow lives in!

I was a huge fan of Rayman Origins, which was released two years ago. At that time, I considered it to be the best 2D platformer in the history of gaming, and I believe that has remained true - until now. Ubisoft has done gamers everywhere a huge service by improving upon their remarkable formula in every possible way, and delivering a game that's even BETTER than the awesome platformer that is Origins.

Foremost, the visuals of Legends need to be addressed. One of the best things about Origins was that it looked like you were controlling a cartoon, which resulted in terrific animations, slapstick comedy, bizarre spectacles, and OODLES of SMILES. I would have been perfectly happy if this sequel looked exactly like Origins, but somehow the developers have made it look even better. The graphics in this game POP like nothing I've ever seen before, and it looks even more like an animated movie than ever. Graphics generally have little to do with actual gameplay, but in the case of the Rayman games, their whimsical presentation has a direct correlation with the end result (that being fun, laughter, and wonder), so they do have a big impact here. This game is a visual treat, and I predict that it will be impervious to the "aging" that most games suffer from, because the art direction is so marvelously realized.

Though Legends' graphics may make this game look a tad childish, do not be deceived - this is a meticulously designed platformer that offers tremendous challenges. Furthermore, if you study the layout of the levels and practice, you will discover that there is an incredible amount of sophistication here.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this GAME! October 3, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not very good at platform games. I am remarkably non-dextrous, and I can never remember button combinations, so I usually do platform games just to be sociable with apologies to my fellow players before and after.

But I love this game. I have been playing it with my kid for hours, trading off between using the wii-mote and the gamepad, and this is just stellar.

My son tells me that the button combinations are somewhat atypical. You can't prove it by me - I just mash around and try to figure out what works, but using the touch controls on the gamepad works great for me. The music and graphics are brilliant and so well integrated, and my son plays the game on the gamepad even when the tv is off. So far, every stage is not just more challenging than the last, but also more beautiful and more interesting than the last, and my son is managing to clear them even WITH my *help.*

Five stars all the way, both for how fun the game is and for how well it integrates the features of the Wii U. 100% love.

5.0 out of 5 stars a game that should be a model for all others October 1, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is not only incredibly fun and challenging to play (but easy enough for school-age kids to pick up), but it's *beautiful*. Every last detail was attended to. It's a side-scrolling game, which means you work from one side of the screen to the other as you play, so there's a lot to take in and accomplish, but it never feels tedious.

It also makes excellent use of the Wii U platform- I have to admit, I was excited to get the Wii U when it was released, but I never really felt the Wii U gamepad was as essential to gameplay with the other Wii U games we had- it just seemed like the developers said "hey, we'll add in some extra controls so they feel like they are getting their money's worth". With Rayman Legends, it's a completely different story. Gamepad use feels essential to gameplay, and it's used masterfully.

I hope there are more games like this. Beautiful to look at, detail-oriented, fun to play without being pandering, and complex without being maddening.
