This is my first Rayman game and my first platforming game on the 360 that I've played so far.
While the title may say Rayman ORIGINS the game doesn't explain how exactly Rayman came to be Rayman. The game starts off with Rayman and his friends relaxing on a tree and ends when you've beaten the boss at the end of the game, turns out nothing changes and Rayman and his gang at back where they started.
There is virtually no storyline in Rayman Origins and being a platforming game it really doesn't matter at all.
The graphics look good and there is a very unique art style that was taken with the game.
The gameplay is what you would expect in a platformer, some jumping, some running, and some collectibles.
For the most part Rayman Origins is an easy game, but there is a large difficulty spike toward the end of the game that did cause me to restart quite a few times. Thankfully the loading times are short and the checkpoints are very well placed.
Rayman Origins is a good rent for anyone who enjoys platforming games and may even be worth a buy for those who feel like being a completionist with the game.
I decided to rent this after hearing how great it was from reviews. This game is amazing and fun. The art style is extremely unique and beautiful to look at. The music is also unique and different. The game was fun.
