Growing up in the 80's, platformers were my bread and butter. Rayman: Origins scratches that itch for nostalgia while still managing to feel fresh and new. The environments and characters look stunning.The levels are nicely varied, and the boss battles,while not anything amazing are never too frustrating. The difficulty curve ramps up nicely as you play. My six year old daughter loves playing this with me, but at about midway through the game the levels became a bit too challenging for her. Even so, the game mechanic of being able to "rescue" your co-op buddy while you continue to play kept this from getting frustrating for either of us. I highly recommend renting this, and if you enjoy it PLEASE buy it to support developers who put out titles like these. Lest we end up being left with nothing but shooters on the shelves.
