    Unless you despise auto-runners, occasional in-game ads, or fun, this fiesta is not to be missed.

    Rayman Fiesta Run, like its predecessor, sets a new standard for mobile platformers.

    In the end, Rayman Fiesta Run is a platforming game that’s all about food, and not only is that food incredibly delicious and 5-star restaurant superb, but we’re all going to be gorging ourselves on it for quite some time until we’re no slimmer than our old pal Globox.

    Like a high-resolution, hyperactive cartoon, Rayman Fiesta Run barrels ahead with unbound enthusiasm.

    Even more impressive than its excellent predecessor, Rayman Fiesta Run is a fiercely entertaining kaleidoscope of colour, wit, and wonder.

    A logical evolution from the original game, fast, beautiful and addictive, that becomes the best 2D platformer available on iOS.

    Rayman Fiesta Run takes all the good things that had made the first Jungle Run and multiplies the number of levels and the difficulty.

    Rayman Fiesta brings exactly what its name promises: a fiesta! It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’s smartly made, perfect for anyone who wants to do a little high-speed, high-energy gaming on the go.

    A superb follow up of the classic Rayman Jungle Run iOS and Android platform adventure. Delightful 2D gameplay.

    Rayman Fiesta Run may not dramatically deviate from the formula, but it maximizes the excellence held within and delivers a richly entertaining mobile platformer that’s tough, funny, and ultimately pretty wonderful.

    Rayman Fiesta Run operates on the principle of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and thus provides more of the great auto-running platforming that Rayman Jungle Run offered.

    If you need a ingenious, varied and frantic runner, then Rayman Fiesta Run is for you. It is pure delight for your eyes and ears, and it is extremely addictive and fun.

    Rayman Fiesta Run might not be as great a platformer as Legends or Origins, but it takes the formula from Rayman Jungle Run and refines and expands that. With a harder difficulty and an option to cheat a bit, it caters for both the casual and experienced gamer. It is simply a fantastic platformer for mobiles.

    Rayman Fiesta Run is another giddy and breathless mix of memory and reflexes. It's not much different from its prequel, but the added challenge is welcome.

    One of the most extensive runners out there, drizzled with beautiful graphics, wonderful level design, and a variety of familiar characters and extras to unlock.

    Rayman Fiesta Run takes everything that made Rayman Jungle Run a great game and just makes it better. A must have for everyone seeking for a good mobile platforming experience.

    Rayman: Fiesta Run is absurd, entertaining and an excellent example of an endless runner game. It's fast, challenging and can be quite funny. Ideal to fill up the lost minutes with or just to run off some stress you acquired throughout the day.

    It is silly, it is challenging and it is highly motivating. Even with its flaws it is hard to resist Rayman.

    The excellent controls and visuals make Rayman Fiesta run a joy to play. The renewed construction of the world also offers more variety then before. Too bad it’s quite short and there’s no reason to come back after finishing it.

    More of the same, but it's not broke and doesn't need fixing. [Feb 2014, p.84]

    Rayman Fiesta Run is an addictive endless run game, where precision and try&failure are the keys to progress. Beautifully designed, thanks to UBIart, the game can sometimes be more frustrating than funny, but it's still worth the money you pay.

    Some games just feel like they are a perfect fit for a device, and Rayman Fiesta Run is an example that proves the point. Lowering the barrier of entry to simple touch based controls, this is casual gaming done right: inclusive, immediate, and great fun.

    Rayman Fiesta Run just misses out on the majesty of its parent games, sometimes tipping from pleasant frustration into genuine annoyance thanks to its endless runner DNA, but it's still one of the best translations of a console hit into a mobile format around.

    Fiesta Run is very similar to Rayman Legends. Much like that game, it’s an elaboration on what has come before (as Jungle Run was to Rayman Origins) and offers the same amount of fun and challenge as before. While the impact isn’t as great this time around, there’s plenty to enjoy with the second helping of mobile platforming goodness.

    Rayman Fiesta Run flirts with the concept of unacceptable microtransactions, but thankfully, there's still a ton of bang for your buck here if you can deal with the progression requirements. With a wonderful set of visuals and an even better control scheme, Rayman fans have a lot to be excited about.

    Simple and to the point, Rayman Fiesta Run follows proudly in its predecessors’ footsteps. The endless-run dynamic is a nice change of pace for fans of the franchise—I just wish the party could’ve lasted longer.

    Fans of Jungle Run can certainly look forward to another generous dollop of creatively crafted levels in Fiesta Run, and we're left largely impressed by this bright and breezy sequel. Not even a handful of minor niggles can stop this from being very easy to recommend to gamers of all tastes and ages.

    Rayman Fiesta Run delivers a finely crafted action platformer that is well suited for iOS, but a little on the redundant side. There’s no doubt it’s worth picking up, but it’s a bit disappointing with higher expectations based on the original, and the current state of the App Store.

    Auto-runners may be a dime a dozen on the App Store, but Fiesta Run is simple, satisfying, and gorgeous to look at.

    This is still a fine – and visually opulent – auto-runner, but it’s bloated, too; a little restraint would have gone a long way.

    All other auto-runners pale beside these Rayman titles. Jungle Run and now Fiesta Run are just a hell of a lot more creative and polished than other games in the genre. Fiesta Run adds a fantastic new power which is a guide showing you where to jump and punch throughout the level. This allows them to ramp up the complexity of their levels while keeping player frustration in check. These games feel like they've been play tested to hell and back, because the difficulty curve is so bang on. I'm actually not a fan of the normal Rayman platformer games--like many people I find them too floaty and slow. But these mobile games absolutely nail it. Full Review »
