NGN: "It could be said that the platforming genre has lost its way recently, from seemingly endless rehashes of Mario to the punishing difficulty of Super Meat Boy. The fun of the genre has been condensed and divided into niches, be that nostalgia or desire for higher difficulty. With Rayman, a series that has also gone through an identity crisis over the years, it seems that there is still hope. Hope for a platformer that is purely based on fun, timing, and amazing presentation to boot. Rayman Origins is such a game."
