In this version the textures of the game are more compressed, so you can see that the game’s graphics are clearer and more detailed than before. You will also see that there is no loading time when you enter or exit a level, which makes the navigation even faster and more enjoyable. Ubisoft has also integrated a new Camera Mode on PS4. By pressing the touchpad of the PS4 joystick, you pause the game and enter this mode, and by moving your fingers on the touchpad, you zoom in and out on the image and drag the image frame; and finally, by pressing the Share button, you can take a photo and share it with everyone. This Camera Mode is a great way to observe in detail all the characters and settings of the game, and a great way of expression to create wacky images with the elements found in the game. On PS4, you can also use the touchpad to scrape the famous Lucky Tickets, then you will really feel like you’re scraping lottery tickets (with the sound of scraping straight from the PS4 joystick). Finally, in this PS4 version, you’ll also find new playable heroes: Assassin Ray (a character inspired by Edward Kenway, the hero of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag), Funky Ray (a delusional character that you can unlock by using Uplay points), and Champion Ray (a character who will be offered to the best players of the community and those who live in this community; this character correspond to the new VIP status, visible in the rankings of online challenges).

  1. Rayman Legends is a legendary game just like its name. With lots of interesting and hard boss fights, surprising and colorful scenes it looks simply amazing. It could be better with online co-op mode but even without that the game is still just fine.

    If you don't mind Murphy's slightly handicapped functionality on ports of Rayman Legends, then the only deciding factors are what bonus costumes you care about, and whether you do or don't have a PS4.

    Rayman Legends is one of the best platform games you can play right now.

    These PS4 and Xbox One versions of Rayman Legends offer better graphics rendering while eliminating all loading times. If you have a next-gen console, that's a good deal, especially since the game is at a low price.

    With rayman Legends, the PS4 and Xbox One welcome one of the best platform games of the past year, at a very attractive price of 40€. Indeed, this versions is still not as good as the Wii U version that uses the gamepad at it's full potential, and we can still moan about the fact that this feature hasn't been used in the PS Vita version. But we have to mention the improved graphics and the enhanced fluidity in those 2014 versions of the game, moreover a few added content is the cherry on top of the cake. If you haven't already played it, now is the right time to do so.

    If you also take into account the discounted price point, massive amount of variety, and local multiplayer, then it’s impossible not to recommend this dream package to anyone with even a passing interest in the side-scrolling genre.

    The addition to these version are not too relevant, but having such a great game on next-gen should rise no complaints. In case you wonder, Rayman Legends is still great.

    Best co op platform since crash bandicoot 3. You won't be dissapointed. Kids will love it.
    This game concentrates more on hard and replayability than deaths and lives very interesting way of doing things.

    This game is well priced and honestly pretty faultless. I never liked or played rayman this is my first rayman title. I did't even know what to expect. Oh btw it's four player co op, so now you have a reason to have that second controller.

    I can't judge on remote or crossplay, this wasn't tested and the maximum characters I played with was 2.
    It was an interesting dynamic with two people in some of the levels. As you can disrupt each other by attacking and you can kill the other character by going to far ahead, if this sounds bad don't be put off as death isn't permenant, and if both players die it's just a restart.

    I also like the unlockable characters and the fact that you don't spend 10k lums on a character if you have 10k lums you unlock the 1k, 2k, 5k and 10k characters.

    Can be enjoyed best with a friend.

    One of the tightest, beautiful and most fun platformer I have ever played.
    Rayman legends is my second favourite platformer, it's does everything perfectly for a 2d platformer.
    The story is almost nonexistent but it doesn't matter here, this game just tries to be fun and focuses on the gameplay and level design.
    The gameplay is very simple: you jump and you hit the enemies, but what makes this game so fun is the level design, every single level is a masterpiece, the bosses are awesome also.
    A great example to show what make these levels so good are the musical levels, in these levels, you can see all the smart enemie placement and platform placement to make a fun rhythm game.

    Buy it now, you won't be disappointed, it's a great 2D platformer and also a great co op game to play with friends.

Challenging game (at times nearly frustratingly difficult) but nice feeling of constant progress with lots of unlocks and rewards to keep you playing. The implementation is really smooth with tight controls, negligible load times, and great and very varied graphics and levels. Love music stages, themes from James Bond and other references, and the variety, creativity of the game's world. Daily challenges are a fresh break. Everyone says here that coop is fantastic but did not try this. But a game offering lots of fun and is easy to come back to once in a while. Highly recommended. Expand

An insane number of levels - which also makes playing with a friend humorous and fun. Daily challenges keep you coming back. Pretty trivial point - the trophies you can win are very achievable just by enjoying the game. Only had a ps2 before FINALLY getting a ps4 (best decision of 2016 so far) and had never played the rayman series before but so glad I picked this game up. I never plan on paying full price for any game but this one would've been worth the $40! Expand

My only problem is that sometimes you and your friend both press circle to tell Murphy were to put the object (left or right and up or down) But still the customization is great I recommend this game to anyone it's just that good but that's just my opinion.
