After playing all paintings on the first two levels, I must say I am disappointed by a few things in this game compared to Origins:
- Lack of a proper time trial mode on levels like the first game. This made the game SO much more fun, and gave the levels more re-playability. I really hope they add this in as DLC or a future update. The invasion levels don't cut it.
- Graphically this seems like a step down. I understand they made the jump to 3D, but the sprites in the first game looked and felt like moving paintings. The Legends characters look and move like CG characters, which takes away a bit of the charm.
- I miss the flying levels. I understand the point of the new level types (a la floating with being able to shoot your punches), but it really is not the same fun for my wife and I.
- I wish there was one more type of character model that was new besides Barbara.
Good things we like about the game:
- The lum 'chains', where you have to get them in order to get double the lums (i.e. a chain where the first lum is purple).
- Barbara is a great addition for my wife
- Sports mode - SO much fun
- Daily challenges are addicting and fun
- More lums per level. I like that there are 600 lums to collect per level now
- Mandatory pause whenever the green floating guy is in a level. After 2-3 levels WE GET IT, no need to pause the action for that long without being able to skip it.Read more ›
When I had the opportunity to review Rayman Legends, I kinda scoffed at the idea until a friend of mine, who played the demo, urged me to try it. I was not disappointed in the least bit and give my first 5-star review on a game in a very long time. I'm not terribly familiar with the franchise as I'd heard about it a few times during the golden ear of gaming that was the Playstation 1 and 2 and dismissed them as just another platform game. I cannot really comment on previous installments and their evolution up until this point, but I can say that I'm very impressed with the game's overall quality and presentation.
Legends is a complex side-scrolling platform game with a simplistic controller interface. You get from A-B but try to rescue captures friends along the way and collect little lantern things for points. Now, unlike other platform games I've played recently (just forced myself through Smurfs 2... it was awful) those points do matter as they unlock characters and levels that affect the actual game itself and are not just some asinine number like Drew Carey's points system on Whose Line is it Anyway? You traverse across a very hostile terrain that is beautifully rendered, if not hand drawn like Dust: An Elysian Tail, and complete quick-thinking maneuvering across an ever-increasing difficult game.Read more ›
While I am not the big gamer in the house, I picked the game up quickly and had a lot of fun. The big gamers in the house, my son and husband, definitely played it more than me and both say that the game has a lot of replay value. Partially because you can go back in and find all the pieces that you missed - which we missed several different things in the first two levels.
I thought that the graphics were cool, the characters were cute and distinctly different. The storyline was fun as well. This is definitely a series I can get into and will be revisiting some of the older games.
I've played both the Wii U version and the Xbox 360 version at this point. Here's my take on it:
- Get the Xbox version if you want to play this game solo, or if you don't want to mess with the gamepad screen tradeoff. The game works flawlessly with an AI helper that requires you to just hit a button where you would otherwise have a coop player. It does have multiplayer co-op support as well, it's just not the more creative asymmetric experience that the Wii U's version offers.
- Get the Wii U version if you have someone who would like to play co op with you and you are up for a new teamplay experience. It can be really fun to work together with one controlling Rayman and the other helping out on the gamepad. This person doesn't need to be a game expert, but to really do well in the later levels, they will at least need to know to act fast as you both work together. You can still play the Wii U version as single player, but if you aren't going to take advantage of the co op play, you may be better off with the Xbox version.
You can't go wrong with either version. I even enjoy this game more than Rayman Origins, though that game is great also, and many of the Origins levels are included as unclockables in this game. This game is an amazing work of art that is gorgeous, fun and full of personality. Buy it and enjoy it, I say.
