Rayman may have been a little over shadowed in the last few years by his Rabbid pals, but older gamers remember his start as a platforming machine. Well, Rayman Origins is a much anticipated return to his platforming roots that looks stunning. But is it a solid return to form? Our Jake Gaskill found out.
"The hand-drawn animations are among the best I have ever seen in any medium, and as such, the characters and environments pulse with life and are just as joyously amusing during the credits sequence as they are during the opening few minutes of the game. Whether its Rayman or his blue amphibian pal Globox (or any of his other buddies) slipping and sliding their way across glaciers dotted with giant pieces of frozen fruit to riding the tops of boiling pots as chili peppers spew fire in a kitchen-themed level to bouncing on drums and wind instruments spread across a dusty desert setting, the game is constantly amazing and dazzling your senses with something new and totally unexpected."
