With the help of Murfy, Rayman and Globox awake and must now help fight these nightmares and save the Teensies. Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world, and the adventure begins.

    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.

    On Xbox One Raymans platforming adventure is as legendary as ever.

    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]

    Very good fun. This beautiful platformer runs 1080p at 60fps on the Xbox One, and has flawless uninterrupted gameplay. I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone who hasn't played it yet. 10/10 is modest.
    I will say that if you played this game on last gen, there is very little difference in the experience.

    Quite simply a fantastic 2D platformer, one of the best I've ever played.

    Art style is beautiful, music accompanies it perfectly and of
    course the best part is the gameplay. If you've played origins this is essentially the same gameplay but with a few new things thrown in. The best thing about this game as well is the replayability and the amount there is to do. There's characters to unlock, creatures to unlock, levels to try and 100% (collect all lums, find all the people who need rescuing and doing the time trial), daily challenges, weekly challenges, a fun little mini game and you can also unlock a load of levels from the origins game.

    If you like platformers, quite simply, get it.

    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 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.

    Outstanding. Outstanding. Outstanding. There's not much else left to say. This game offers everything its predecessor did and more. Fluid gameplay, brilliant music. And now online daily and weekly challenges, as well as adorable collectables, loads of Origins inspired unlockable levels, AND probably best of all - Rhythm based levels focused around pieces of music that show how truly seamless the level design is. A must have for your Xbox One! Expand

    Its not bad. Having some fun but just think it gets boring after about 20 minutes to be honest i don't understand what is that good about this game the graphics are great like its not a bad game though. Expand

    Just because the graphics are great, it offers nothing new in the gameplay department. The developers have a long way to offer new, innovative gameplay. Don't be fooled by its appearance. Expand
