VB - Playing Rayman Origins is sublime. The platformer is so full of joy and whimsy that it’s tough not to fall for its charm. It’s able to effortlessly tap into some “pure glee” part of my brain every time I play. The game is just fun.
Loved getting the platinum on this game. I vaguely remember some bonus-type levels being pretty difficult but not anything too crazy. I'm not one to torture myself striving for 100% completion if a game is feeling unfair but this one did a good job of balancing the difficulty. There were some levels where you just have to constantly restart and keep trying, felt a lot like Tony Hawk back in the day. I'd say this was less frustrating than Joe Danger but pretty similar in that regard.
