Almost didn't rent it...glad I did

Here's the breakdown: bits of goofy funnyness, classy artwork, very good music soundtracks, and just plain awesome perks reveal that the game was designed by a uncommon crowd...turns out that the crew was primarily European/French design crew. My videogame-despising roommate, after dumbing down virtually every other game aside from the Kingdom Hearts franchise, praised this game from a 3rd person perspective. Now that's saying something...right?

If you're scratching your head about whether or not to rent/buy this (like me)--do yourself a favor and try it out. It's a nice refresher as opposed to the Japanese games. I still go to YouTube to find some of the great music found on this game. As for keeping the game, it was....err, not for me.

When Rayman Origins first came out I was excited, I finally got to see one my favorite heroes back in action. However Rayman Origins did more than just excite me, it made me realize how well a video game should be. The graphics are down right beautiful and it has so much atmosphere wherever you go. The music is fun and catchy and even makes the areas much better. The best part of Rayman Origins however is the gameplay. This game will put any gamer's skills to the test, you will die a lot but the controls are so good that it's your fault, not the game's. Multiplayer is just as fun with being able to smack your friends around is so sweet. Rayman Origins is one the best platformers, heck even one the best games I've ever played. It's on every system so it's at least worth a try.

this game was both addictive and lots of fun. but as the game pogressed i began questioning whether or not the creators were trying to drive me crazy and then questioned my own sanity when i insisted upon seeing it through to the end. there were some levels that i literally played certain parts 50 times before being able to progress only to die inches past the previous area and then would have to start over again. insane! i was beginning to think i was going to have to pay a neighborhood kid to beat it that level for me just so i could continue on. but all in all a good time. but why was it sooooo hard?
