    Well i be honest i cant see why everyone is hating on this game? possibly because there comparing it to HD console versions or the fact game doesn't have local 4 player co-op which to me is no big deal. i bought it the other day for £18 pound and Ive got nothing but praise for it. Am not comparing this to any other version as am taking it on its own merits and what Ive played IveWell i be honest i cant see why everyone is hating on this game? possibly because there comparing it to HD console versions or the fact game doesn't have local 4 player co-op which to me is no big deal. i bought it the other day for £18 pound and Ive got nothing but praise for it. Am not comparing this to any other version as am taking it on its own merits and what Ive played Ive enjoyed alot. Yes it has few faults no 4 player option which for me is not big draw. And you cant play as teenise's on 3DS version which is shame. Other than that i personal thought gameplay was great and really enjoyed it. Graphics specially in underwater levels look beautiful and while character aren't as detailed or crisp they do there job just as well. All 60 levels are present plus the huge boss battles, string of chest challenges, time attack levels and few unlockable costumes for two playable characters - Rayman and Globlox are present. There are few really cool flying levels and very tricky platforming treats around every corner. Ive notices 4 drops of slowdown in some of later levels but nothing game breaking. 3D while not "SUPER POP OUT" makes levels feel very pretty and gives them nice sense of depth which i really liked. Other reviews mention blurry textures which are there but again doesn't make the game ugly or unpleasing to eye. Personal this best 2D plaftformer Ive picked up in ages and if you enjoy this type of game then ill think you'll get kick out of it! BTW this game also has 32 achievements and use's streetpass function on 3DS. Expand

    The 3DS version seems like it's almost directly taken from the home console versions, which isn't surprising, but other than being 3D, and having a bottom screen, there's really no difference. I'm still going to give it an 8 because it's a great game in it's own right, they just could 've added a few extra things for the 3DS.

I'm still going to give it an 8 because it's a great game in it's own right, they just could 've added a few extra things for the 3DS. On the PlayStation Vita they added the feature of being able to touch enemies to pop them once they have been bubbleized. This may sound like a small feature, but it's things like this that define it for the console you're playing it on. Expand

    After actually completing the game i can say the following: ITS THE SAME GAME AS OTHER VERSIONS!, Despite having poorly adapted visuals and sound, it feels the same...

    Rayman Origins is an amusing 2D platformer.

    It has beautiful art and a hip soundtrack. Collect lums to free electoons to progress in the game. Collect all lums to fully complete game and get gold medals. Doing this is extremely hard even in the first stages. The player is able to switch their playable character. The 3DS game has achievements to unlock. The game suffers from long,

    Rayman Origins is a unique, well designed platformer with loads of personality that simply doesn't feel right on the 3DS.

    If you haven't yet enjoyed Rayman Origin and you want to do it on your 3DS anywhere you are, this is better than nothing, as the game is already a classic. But this adaptation is a bit disappointing technical wise.

    A port that's slower, blurrier, and missing multiplayer, but for all that it's still the 3DS' best non-Mario platformer. Beautiful, fluid and packed with value. [July 2012, p.97]
