i'd give Origins a dazzling 4/10. It bored me to tears...And this is coming from somebody who absolutely adores the PS1 original.

The fact that you adore the original is probably WHY you didn't like Origins. Maybe you just don't like change?

Most people would probably agree that Origins was a great game though. I can't WAIT to get Legends!

This is the thesis to Waveboy's forum life.

Yeah Rayman Legends being awesome has been obvious for a long time now.

I didn't like the controls, the stage design(not talking visuals) for the most part was 'bluh' and most of the enemies were just stationary waiting to get pounced on whenever the game decided to go into 'rythem platforming' mode. :p half of the soundtrack was pretty annoying as well, specifically the latino chipmunk tunes which took over those generic shmup based stages. Meanwhile the difficulty finally managed to rear it's head right at the end of the game, which was completely absent from the rest unless you're trying to collect enough lums/electoons per stage.

The entire experience I found was a tedious chore and the developers clearly had more of an emphasis on wowing everybody with Origins visuals and quirky artsy fartsy soundtrack rather than delivering spectacular platforming found in most Nintendo & Capcom platformers. Wario Land Shake it! and even NSMB.Wii it tis' not. Just my opinion though, and i know i'm totaly in the minority on this one, just how i'm in the minority based on how me' thinks Wario land shake it! is the greatest 2D platformer on the Wii! ;)

I'll take Wave's side on Origins, I derived little enjoyment out of the Earthworm Jim-ish visual style approach that they took, the levels were bland, and the music was annoying. Not picking up legends. No way.

Loved Origins. It had great platforming, beautiful artwork, and wonderful music. So, I am very excited for this game, but most likely I will wait for a price drop. You can get Origins extremely cheap at the moment, so I will wait for Legends to get to that point.

Origins was actually my first Rayman game, and I played it on my 360. I thought it was quirky and fun, and I love platformers so that was awesome. But I will say that I wasn't totally hooked and driven to complete everything in the game like I would with a Mario title. I'll definitely be getting Legends, though.

I've gathered a surprising amount of fun from the Legends App and to see the Challenges bit is present in the game is welcome. That said, the Invaded Levels do look like they will be challenging, or so I've seen on the Youtubes.

this is probably for the best as you presumably missed out on one of the most insanely frustrating bonus levels ever made (still not sure how much of it was in a good way either)

Origins is so so so much better than the New Super Mario Bros series.

Origins had a distinct "collect all the crap" vibe to it that really brought the experience down a level for me.

...

Yay, good job Legends! Hope there's more where that came from.

I can't wait for this game. I have enjoyed the challenge app like crazy. This is the game I have been most excited for in my life, and this high score pleases me :) I am anxiously counting down the days.

i thought the land of the livid dead was frustrating in the very best way, been a long time since a games made me feel like this. id rage quit (which i never, ever do) storm out my room, only to turn it back on in 5 minutes and try again. i LOVED it hard lol.

put it on.

I've never played a Rayman game before (besides Raving Rabbids but that doesn't count at all), but I was completely HOOKED when I got the challenges app. I'm definitely getting the game on launch because of how much fun I've had on the challenges app alone. I'm sure the main game will be great! I'm glad that the Wii U version will support 5 players and have extra modes. Normally I get multi-platform games on PC but the Wii U version seems superior in this case.

Origins was the platformer of the generation for me. Not sure if Legends will be able to top it (That would be quite the feat!), but alas, I can't wait to get my hands on the game either way.

I didn't think it was that hard. Quite a few checkpoints and infinite lives. I thought that boss at the end was going to be impossible, but it was pretty short actually, so I didn't have too much trouble.
