Nope, but i will once it goes down in price for the Wii. :p
I could try out the PS3 demo....But I'm afraid that the gorgeous HD visuals and true Widescreen will make me feel a bit butt hurt when actually going back and playing the Wii version. Too bad PS3 games lag on my HDTV, where as wii games work pretty damn great on the other hand. Wii version it tis' B-)

How's $19.99 for ya?

My oh my how quickly the price of the game dropped! Even the PS3 versoin is $19.99. If I was to get this I would go with PS3 for HD and widescreen.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

This game is a blast and it's tied with Donkey Kong Country Returns as my favorite platformer of all time. The multiplayer is the best in any 2D platformer in my opinion, plus the treasure chest chase levels are fantastic and have some of the best level design i've ever seen.

Playing single player Rayman Origins was much more enjoyable for me than multiplayer. Unlike New Super Mario Bros. Wii, it's hard to see who's who or what's going on in Rayman Origins since it zooms out so much. The levels don't feel like they were designed with multiplayer in mind either. In NSMBW, when playing through it alone you are constantly coming across areas where you wish you had another person there to help you up somewhere--things like that. In Rayman Origins your pals are just in the way more than anything.

The Wii version is better because you can play with the nunchuk and not get cramped up. It's the perfect control system.

Not only does the 3DS come with an SD card, but it also happens to come pre-installed with one, additional dimension.

Unfortunately due to my wife and I moving overseas, I haven't had enough spare cash to pick this up. As soon as I have the money I'll grab it though!

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

I found that because you are all on the same plane and constantly bump in to each other in NSMB Wii, i got constantly frustrated by being bumped into pits and having no room to share small platforms. I found it a much better experience alone in my opinion. While it was nice to team up with one buddy and cooperate to get star coins, I thought that having your attacks be the only way you interact with each other was better in rayman. Overall I just seemed to have more fun in single player in NSMB and more fun in multiplayer in rayman. Sorry for the long post, just my opinions.

I have more fun in NSMB because of that reason lol. I like messing people up on occasion. Grab them and toss them down!!!!!!!

I never had a room issue though, I would always jump on people's heads.

For all the people holding out for the 3ds version, I would highly recommend checking the wii version since the 3ds version won't be out untill march. Besides, the game is so darn good it is totally worth getting both.

Yes, this game is fantastic. The fast flow of the levels make it everything Sonic wants to be.

It does move fast at times but it's very different from Sonic Colors. The Sonic games have alternate paths that all lead to the level's end, but Rayman has one set path. In Rayman Origins there isn't much to explore, but it was fantastic in it's own way.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, but I've only just started playing in the last day or so. I'm three stages into world 2, and I've been having a blast.

Although from what I've played (and granted, I haven't done any multiplayer yet), it feels a lot more like Donkey Kong Country Returns than New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

I don't know about you all, but i'm curious to see how this turns out on the 3ds when it's released. No multiplayer is a disappointment, but the 3d effect will be really neat with the art style and it gives me a chance to play the game more.

I actually have this game on 360. I enjoy it alot. :) I'll give the demo a shot when it hits the 3DS.

Yo, what's up? Not a fanboy to any console, but I do spend time on Xbox 360 more than anything else at the moment. I play a lot of fighting games such as Street Fighter, Tekken, and Dead or Alive.

Absolutely loved 100%'ing this game, I was a big fan of the original Rayman for PSX and they made it ten times better. I can't see myself getting it again for 3DS since I've done everything already, but it would be nice to see the amazing artwork brought to life even further in 3D.

yeah, but without any sense of challange and satisfaction ;p

I'm on World 3 and Origins for the most part is quite easy. It's addicting, gorgeous, full of personality, it's got funky tunes(somewhat in tune with the PSX orginal...although that one was more whimsical and fantasy infused, where as this one is more artsy fartsy and wonderous.)and has a great art style but like you pointed out it doesn't give off any sense of reward or satisfaction, which was my exact same problem with Epic Yarn. The Challenge comes into play when trying to collecting all of the lums in each stage to fill up the medacllions.

The PS3 Version's 1080p, True Widescreen, HDMI and superior visuals make the wii version look like ridiculously lousy in comparison. But on it's own Origins on the Wii looks beautiful, i've adjusted and i DO prefer to use the wii remote on it's side NES style MUCH more than the dual shock controller. Going to plunk in 2 more play sessions tonight. Want to finish this one up before the new years! B-) And then I'll finally unbox my Wii U.lol

I'm playing it on 3DS, and I am lucky because I haven't played it on on any other system, so I am amazed by the graphics. It's incredibly fun, even without any multiplayer. I love the music, the art, the controls, the pig-latin, everything! I'm 62% complete right now.

I got the orginial for Playstation years ago after playing at a friend's house. It was so difficult, I don't know how any 10 year old kid (age of my friend when he beat it the first time) could play through that game. This game blew my mind and got me excited about the series again. I love the grafics, the multiplayer, and the insane but playable environments! The music is so catchy and enjoyable. I definity recommend this game if you like puzzles, action, and a lot of movement.

I also found Great Escape for my iPhone!!

Yup, i'm in the 'This game is a bit overrated' camp. Seems like the breathtaking superb visuals, unique quirky sound and wonderful music, bizarre off the wall goofy 'I don't give a funk' characters and art style has clouded many gamers heads. :p The fun factor just isn't quite there for me, nor is there much of a challenge. At times i feel like I'm just forcing myself to complete it. This game doesn't bring me the joy that Wario Land Shake it!, Klonoa and Super Paper Mario did. I feel like it falls in line with Epic Yarn.....pure eye candy and all of the other bells and whistles, but the core gameplay and challenge just don't don't quite measure up. It's 'good' but not great.

I think the most dissapointing aspect of the game are the Bosses themselves. I dig the shoot em up mosquito gameplay which is a nice break from the norm, but the end boss which they leads up to half the time are ALWAYS a complete push over.I'll probably have it finished up in 2-3 more days, but as is i'm just not seeing the 10/10's, probably more in tune with an 8.

How hard is Rayman Origins? I've only ever played the original on PS1, and that game was very hard. I never did beat it...
