    With stellar gameplay, wonderful art and a superb soundtrack, Rayman Legends is one of the best platformer games ever released, hands down.

    The new version of Rayman Legends for Switch, despite not offering significant additions, again proves that the Ancel game is one of the best modern platformers.

    This edition of Rayman Legends offers almost everything the previous versions offered. And for fourty bucks this is a lot. The game looks fantastic and feels everything but old or obsolete. This is simply a must have for Switch owners.

    In bringing the latest Rayman adventure to Switch, Ubisoft has given the machine easily one of its most visually stunning and enjoyable releases to date. Not quite living up to the moniker of Definitive Edition with increased loading times and performance hiccups, as well as a missing feature, Rayman Legends is still well worth the lower asking price to those yet to jump into Rayman's world, yet outside of the portability aspect it offers little to entice series veterans.

    There just isn't enough here to justify warranting a purchase of Definitive Edition. It's slightly worse than its prior counterparts (even forgoing the Wii U's gameplay twist with Murfy and not letting another Switch user connect and play in that particular way), and the only truly new feature is the ability to play a tournament mode in the Kung Foot soccer minigame.

La única pega que le veo es que esta en todas las demás consolas y en la switch esta el precio alto y si tienes las otras consolas y este juego no lo jugarías demasiado en portátil pues no lo compres en la switch. En mi caso jugarlo en la switch fue maravilloso. Expand

    The legends were true. Rayman is super dope.

    Rayman Legends is the triumphant sequel to the excellent Rayman Origins. The titles don't really mean much in terms of what they're about, but the games are original, and in my opinion legendary. Origins became an instant favorite of mine when it came out, with a gorgeous hand-drawn aesthetic, delightfully bouncy music and deeply satisfying gameplay. Having these massive levels shake and spin around you as you keep running and running from lum to lum was an incredible time. How does the sequel stand up to that?

    Where this game shines, it shines bright. The levels are again expertly crafted, providing you with an optimal path to challenge your skills while still having forgiving design that doesn't punish inexperienced players. There's more to find in each level and more to do with each level, as additional challenges are unlocked after you save enough Teensies. The visuals got a noticeable upgrade, applying more shading and textures to the characters and environments to make an already beautiful art style look even better. The inclusion of Music stages that act as constant runners where you have to jump and move to the beat is genius and it's a great reward for beating the world's boss.

    Overall I would say this game does what Origins did better, but I still prefer Origins. Legends has some weird additions that take away some of the purity of the experience for me. Back when the game was a Wii U exclusive they took advantage of the game pad by making levels that require Murphy to participate in solving puzzles for you to progress. These aren't bad, they just aren't as fun as the regular stages and I always feel a little disappointed when I come across one. Also, I kind of prefer getting three teensie cages per stage rather than having 10 to find around every corner. Legends prioritizes exploration in this way whereas I prefer the focus being more on momentum and reflex platforming. Finally, the weird lottery system that unlocks costumes, stages and homunculi feels like Ubisoft subtly including a 'baby's first microtransaction' system into the game so their audience grows up groomed and ready to hand over real life money for in game apparel later in life. Just my theory, but it rubbed me a little wrong, despite never actually involving real life money.

    Again, these issues aren't game-breaking, they're not even bad. They're just little nitpicks that got in my head while I was comparing the game with its predecessor. This is a fantastic title, one that any platforming aficionado should own and cherish.

    This game.... what to say.... I remember how amazing this game was on the VITA.... AND the Wii U.... and it was even better on the PS4.
    Its hard to believe that this game is getting good ratings, when this is by far the WORST PORT of the games life. The switch is capable of so much more, but UBI decided to shave off so much to squeeze it down to the smallest size possible. This was a HUGE downgrade from all previous versions and should be passed up if you already own this game on ANY other platform.
