About this game

Developer: Ubisoft Montpellier
Content Rating: Everyone10+


Players can choose to control either Rayman, Globox or two Teensies, with additional costumes available as the game progresses. Players travel through each level, fighting enemies and rescuing imprisoned Electoons. As the game progresses, players gain new abilities such as running up walls, gliding in midair, swimming and shrinking in size to reach new areas. Certain segments also sees players riding a mosquito, where players can shoot enemies or suck them up and fire them. If a character is hit by an enemy or obstacle, he will inflate into a ballooned state until another player can bring him back into the game by slapping him, similar to New Super Mario Bros. Wii, although players can collect hearts that will protect them from one hit.

How much you get out of Rayman Origins ultimately comes down to whether you've played it already. 3DS isn't exactly bursting with 2D platformers, so if you haven't sampled the magic of Rayman Origins on another platform this is well worth picking up. However, it doesn't compare favourably to the other versions and makes little use of 3DS's unique abilities. A good, solid 2D platformer, it'll still entertain and amuse in spite of its flaws.

There's a great game struggling to escape the apparent confines of the 3DS here, but weak visuals and terrible sound make it a purchase only for those that can't play it any other way. Rayman Origins on 3DS plays like the real deal, but it looks and sounds like an early tech demo.

In the past few years a number of quality multiplayer-centered 2D platformers have released on consoles and Rayman Origins might be the best of the bunch. It makes appreciative references to past Rayman titles, while propelling the series boldly into modern videogame relevance. Thanks to its magnificent presentation and level design, Rayman Origins is one of the most surprisingly brilliant games I have come across in a long time. If you catch me on a good day I could probably talk about all the assorted wonderful feelings playing it conjured up within me for hours on end.
