Outside of the venerable Mario Bros. franchise, great platforming is tough to find these days. Granted, a lot of it surely has to do with the industry having switched its main focus to realistic-looking games and shooters. Still, although the amount of fantastic sidescrolling jumpers has dwindled over the last decade or more, some companies have stepped up to the plate, with Ubisoft being a prime example. We fanatics certainly have them to thank for two of the best genre efforts in a long time: 2011's Rayman Origins, and now its soon-to-be-released sequel, Rayman Legends.
