    Rayman Legends isn’t just an HD upgrade or a game to tide you over before mechs start punching each other or beanie-hatted superpowered hipsters run amok in Seattle. It may include extra levels and a few extra costumes (taken from other Ubisoft properties) but the real value here is its inherent charm, frantic fun and a free-spirited feeling that enlivens one of the quietest periods in the life of a new console.

    Rayman Legends on the current generation of consoles is the best platforming experience of this early 2014 year.

    A gorgeous, joy-filled, characterful platformer. Aside from a few minor niggles, Rayman Legends deserves a place alongside the very best examples of the genre. It looks ever-so slightly prettier on Xbox One, but that's about it. Nonetheless, Rayman Legends is still highly recommended.

    Rayman Legends is still the same enchanting, cheeky and all-around wonderful platformer, made by people who are absolutely in love with the genre. These guys still can think of something to say where most everyone else is content to endlessly quote the classics.

    No new content, but Ubisoft's Montpellier team astounds us again with just how pretty games can be. [May 2014, p.71]

    I will say that if you played this game on last gen, there is very little difference in the experience.

    The version is no different from the other console versions, and that is ok. To me, the release of Rayman Legends on the PS4 or Xbox OneThe version is no different from the other console versions, and that is ok. To me, the release of Rayman Legends on the PS4 or Xbox One wasn't about offering more content, or a different experience. That is just fine with me, and the reason I decided to wait until it released on next get was for the features of the consoles because the game is the same.
    The game is fast, fluid, and masterfully done. There are many levels, character unlocks, and weekly/daily challenges to compete against the community online. The platforming is very well done and a great variety of challenges. The vibrant colors and art is a delight to look at, and some of the best levels incorporate music that coincides with your movement. The Castle Rock level is by far my favorite, and is so well done I have played it several times just for the experience.
    The mulitplayer, couch Co-Op is done very well. I seek out titles that offer couch co-op so my children can play. As long as one person is skilled enough the level can be beaten, and the other players can hop in and out at any time. My only complaint is the lack of online multiplayer, and this is a feature that should have been added.

    The benefit of the xbox one version is what the console offers. I love the ability to just leave the game on the console by playing another application or turning the console off, and I am able to pick up where I left off in seconds. The ability to get into playing the game quickly is great for me since often I just want to get a few minutes of game time, and this does it well.

    Fun Factor: 10/10 A blast to play
    Graphics: 10/10 Gorgeous HD, hand drawn game that looks like art
    Sound: 9/10 - Most levels sound and music mix well with character actions on screen. More levels like Castle rock please!
    Controls: 9/10 Near perfect controls, and this is necessary for a platformer. Could be a 10/10-but there are rare occasion it felt like a tweek is needed.
    Multiplayer 9/10 - Couch Co-op makes this game awesome and worth a purchase for me. I docked a point for no online level play. The daily/weekly challenges is a nice touch, but a bit more would have been nice.

    I've loved Rayman ever since I played "Rayman 3" in 2004, and I can sincerely say that this is the best Rayman game that I have ever played.I've loved Rayman ever since I played "Rayman 3" in 2004, and I can sincerely say that this is the best Rayman game that I have ever played. The graphics are gorgeous, the combat is fluid, and there are tons of collectibles and secrets to discover. It's true that the game is somewhat lacking in the story department, but Rayman has never really been about story. The strength of the series has always been the gameplay, which is where "Rayman Legends" shines. Expand

Its hard to find fault inMax the curse of brotherhood brought me back to the platformer genre, Rayman Legends confirmed my love it again. Its hard to find fault in this title, its so well put together. There is a mountain of levels here including some from Origins. Just a blast of a game, the kids will love, the wife will love it and if you're a big kid like me then you'll love it too. Expand
