MY TOP FIVE 2D PLATFORMERS OF ALL TIME

1 Rayman Legends
2 Yoshi's Island
3 Super Mario Bros. 3
4 Super Mario World
5 Super Metroid

Yep, it's that good. Sorry, Nintendo, your dominance in the 2D platformer genre is fading. All those years of edging out Capcom, only for Ubi to swoop in and grab the throne.

It's time to step the game up. Mario's Grass, Fire, Ice, Water simple world themes don't compare to the unique and complex worlds this game presents. They are so creative, so unique, so fun. Bouncing off dragons, flying in the air, hopping off and on crumbling castle towers, Mariachi themes, Music levels, it's just leaps and bounds beyond.

I don't want to play as TOAD! This game has dozens of cool characters. Sure their gameplay is the same, but so aren't Mario's characters'.

This game is so good.

@letsgoretro I have to agree, and it's hard not to!
As much as I love Mario and have enjoyed being a part of Nintendo's history with 2d platforming to date, Rayman Legends is just so refreshing to play. This game brings some much needed innovation to the genre!

Yeah, it was nice playing a good platformer for once! I almost want to get origins now just so I can try out another Rayman game. The fact that you don't have lives or a time limit in this game is awesome (well except the pseudo-time limit in invasions). Also, the online implementation is perfect. Nintendo needs to start taking notes!

I warn you, it is sort of hard to go back to origins. As much as I love it, legends just plays so much more smoothly. Origins is still an amazing game however, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Rayman Origins was MUCH harder then Legends! Hopefully Retro studios paid attention to Ubisoft and doesn't skimp out on the difficulty in their upcoming DKC!

But to end on a positive note: Oh man, that level with the wrestlers!! Made me laugh so hard!!

Rayman looks a bit off in that fan art, the rest look good though! I have just finished all the new levels and collected all the teensies. I have also completed all the invasion levels and got all the Lum trophies. The only thing that is left are the Origins levels, but these can wait since I have already played trough Origins multiple times.

Began playing it like an hour ago... first levels were super-dull.. but it got better. Stil not a good platformer though. It has a super-nice presentation with beautiful graphics and an awesome score but gameplay wise the games feels... nah.. good but nothing special.. It shines through with some good pieces here and there but so far i have only had really fun with the Murfy levels.

I'm sorry, but the character AI in the Murphy levels (at least in the Vita version) is simply terrible, and ruins what is otherwise a perfect game. I have done almost everything in the game up to the point of the final Murphy-controlled level in Olympus Maximus, and I have just spent half an hour trying to get the King Teensy. Every single time I have died, it is because the AI has needlessly killed itself in ways a human controlled character could have easily avoided. The AI has been annoying at times up to this point, but this is just unacceptable. If I was playing the PS3, 360 or PC version, or had the ability to just use buttons to control Murphy, I would have an infinitely easier time with the level. But no.

I'm sorry to say it, but at least for single player, the Vita/Wii U version is simply inferior to the other versions because of the Murphy AI. It is unacceptably horrendous at points which I simply cannot forgive. If not for it, it would have been the best 2D platformer ever in my opinion.

And that's exactly how I felt about Origins. pretty boring. The platforming is below average, compared to what i've played through out the years. I doubt I'll dig Legends, looks like more of the same outside the Murphy based stages & Wii U game controls. Give me Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze instead pease.
