@Spuratis Yeah I have to say, Rayman Legends was kind of boring, for me. I think the only aspect that Rayman Legends does better than Tropical Freeze is the online races and events they have daily and weekly.

Origins was the most boring platformer i've played in years. I wish ubisoft would of done something more similar to the 2D PS1 original.

@WaveBoy Dude, Rayman IMO is one of the best platformers as far as difficulty goes. It's not in the same league as like.. Ninja Gaiden, because it's feel is completely different, but there's just something about it. I never beat the game but I haven't played it since I was like 11. I got played it on the Sega Saturn and loved every minute of it.. there was just one boss that I could never get passed. I wish I still had the game and my saturn, I've been wanting to play it again for some time.

Whoa. My thoughts exactly. Considering the love Origins and Legends get, it's quite rare to run into another who would have preferred a direction more faithful to the original. The original is tense and precise to a fault. Like a daunting, refined dish that is appetizing, yet not so easy on the palette. These new games are elegant junk food.

I feel the developers have become so hamstrung by the desire to make something for all to enjoy together that they lost some focus and respect for the single player experience. The levels thrill when played with others around some drinks, but I have little desire to play more than a couple in a single sitting. All those spectacles do little to make the game more engaging or fun to play. Origins' levels are weirdly broken into incongruous segments. Legends is preoccupied with unnecessary, mindless environmental interactions that are not conducive to the free-flowing, frenetic platforming style.

I'll stop this rant before I get out of pocket, but I find the admiration for Origins and Legends to be strange in any capacity other than a multiplayer time-waster.

This is my first DK game, and it's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Only anticipated it to be very difficult since that's what many other people have said...but it hasn't been too much of a challenge yet! I'm at world 5..maybe it'll get harder later

Getting gold on some of the time trials is very difficult though

If I was to do a difficulty comparison thing it would look something like this to me, from easiest to hardest:

  • Kirby's Epic Yarn
  • Every other Kirby game I've played
  • Yoshi's Island DS, the main story at least
  • New SMB U
  • Rayman Legends
  • New Super Luigi U
  • Super Mario World
  • The first DKC
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • DKC: TF
  • DKC 2
  • Classic Mega Man

Rayman is a very solid game. Tons of content. I like the sound track and the graphics are sharp. It's definitely in my top five Wii U games.

this game's difficulty is perfect, and to comment on what others have said... Rayman is a good game, but IMO there is no comparison DKC:TF is without a doubt a better game...and the music is extraordinary
