    Incredibly imaginative, extremely motivating and visually a treat: With Rayman Legends Switch users can look forward to one of the best 2D platformers of the last generation on their system.

    The best choice to discover Rayman Legends if you hadn't the opportunity to play this great platformer before.

    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.

Such a great platformer, the music stages are a blast! One of the best 2D platformers for your money that don't start in "Super Mario"! Expand

The levels are great, perfectly balanced and scale beautifully into each next part of the game. I wish it was even longer, but hey, you can always come back to this game for the daily challenges. Thanks ubisoft for this port to the switch. Expand

    Rayman Legend est LA référence du jeu de plateforme 2D ! Cette version Switch est complète et définitive (tous DLC compris). Les graphismesRayman Legend est LA référence du jeu de plateforme 2D ! Cette version Switch est complète et définitive (tous DLC compris). Les graphismes sont somptueux et les animations à tomber par terre. D'une difficulté progressive, tous les niveaux trouverons leur compte. On ne pourra lui reprocher qu'un manque de trame scénaristique... Il n'y a pas vraiment d'histoire, vont parcourez les niveaux sans réel but.

    Ce que j'ai aimé (+) :
    - La réalisation technique
    - L'ambiance sonore
    - La progressivité au niveau de la difficulté
    - Les stages musicaux
    - le mode coop

    Ce que je n'ai pas aimé :
    - L'inutilité des monstres
    - Le manque de scénario

    Ce Rayman est un must. Cette version Switch est ultra riche, vous en aurez pour votre argent.
