Rayman Origins is the first game I played on the PS Vita. The game is beautiful and very engaging from beginning to the end.
Plot: There is a story to this game but, it is not anything in depth. The plot is close to the early NES games, where the game throws you in right away and, after awhile, you figure out the bare minimum of the plot. If you do not read the instructions, you would not know the details of the story.
The Game Play :The game is a simple platform where you run, jump, swim, and glide your way throughout an abundance of levels. The levels start off very easy but, as your progress, the levels get challenging. At times, you will get frustrated, which if you are a thrower of controllers, you should consider getting a the console version.
Replay Value and Trophy: The replay value is limited. Once you beat some levels you unlock ghost levels. You can play the ghost levels but, there is no trophy for them. The trophies are for the most part easy until you get to the last levels and especially Livid Dead level. The Livid Dead level is near impossible and takes precision, patience and a little luck to finish. The Vita makes it nice because you can pause the game, set it down and come back to it later.
Overall: The game is fun and rewarding when you get those hard trophies. The game is family friendly except for a couple of levels when you meet busty Nymphs. They are cartoonish looking but, if you find that offensive, you should not give the game to your child.
