Rayman Origins is a beautiful game through out, with vivid colors and bright environments none of the levels with leave you bored. The controls and platforming in this game is amazing throughout. The game is difficult but not initially it is more due to the time trials and other collectiable medals if you so choose to do them, and if you want pure challenge be sure to pick up all the dragon teeth that level shows just how difficult platforming can be. Though it may be a bit repetitious at times none of the levels seem like exact copies of one another. This is pure platformer through and through and if you love that old school Mario type of feel, but updated and polished then look for Rayman Origins.
It is a repetitive platformer. None of the characters have anything to set them apart from one another except in visual preference so no matter what character you are using the game plays the same. They seemingly recycled every platformer cliche' they could muster to try to create challenges (time trials, collection quotas, etc.).
Graphics are very good and the level ideas are good but not very inventive. The only secrets to find are hidden power coins and the one or two bonus rooms in each stage.
The platforming is top notch and controls are easy to get. Pretty easy game to beat. But getting each achievement in game or trophies does require some level replay to get them all. It is a solid game but you'd have to be either in love with platformers or Rayman to really enjoy it.

This game is a masterpiece. Up there with DK Country, even better. This game reminds me of why I started playing games in the first place, FUN. To bad they don't make games like they used to, definitely a buyer, a game that sticks true to originality and perfection without all the unnecessary bs that games nowadays came to relies on.
