Very Good

Belongs on a portable

Must admit, I didn't really like this on my PS3 (I gave it a 5 or a 6). However, despite it being essentially the identical game, it scores an 8 here.

Much like the brilliant Mario 3DS, it is made for a portable. Bite size levels, pick up and play, perfect for a quick game on a train or wherever you are. Also, not too hard on battery life. I managed to play for 4 hours on a plane without it dying.

Highly recommended.

Fun and beautiful, but oh so frustrating.

Rayman Origins is a beautiful platformer filled with charm, uniqueness, and fun. The graphics are gorgeous, the characters funny and unique, and variety is robust. Now, all these factors tie into a fun game, but also an incredibly difficult one. I'm all for a game that challenges me, but Rayman Origins crosses the line sometimes. There are certain stages where honestly, it becomes the opposite of fun and I'm playing just to finish, rather than to have fun. I'm not saying the game isn't fun, it seriously is. And addicting to. It is definitely one of the better platformers out there. Great, smooth gameplay, its funny, entertaining, and keeps you having fun. Until it gets frustrating. It kills me sometimes how I'll end up redoing the same thing dozens of times, because I can't make some stupid jump and react fast enough. The checkpoints need to be better if the developers are going to make it this hard. And unfortunately they didn't. Also unfortunate is that the controls are sometimes a little unresponsive. There have also been numerous times when I die because my jump doesn't register or I begin to hover to late. This gets old quickly, and means you have to retry stages when you really shouldn't. Maybe this is better on console, but here, it's sadly not.

Some people may like games this difficult, I don't. When I'm not screaming at it, I'm loving it. But I find myself getting angry at it more than having fun. I recommend it all the way, just be careful. Do not expect a fun, easy, family game. This is a hardcore game all the way.
