Rayman Origins’ appearance on Xbox 360 highlights a poor platform generation, as underneath it’s as old school as flat top haircuts and parachute pants.
I don't think it's a platforming fail as so much as timing. This is across the board on console. Halo Gears MW3 Uncharted Batman Skyrim Zelda Assassin's Creed The game is just getting over shadowed. Sonic Generations is also a stellar platformer and the first really good Sonic in ages. I am glad Rayman is getting the reconition it deserves. I am going to get it on Vita cause I am playing the said games above and just don't have time.
Games like this are a breath of fresh air. Unlike the rehashed stale crap that has plagued this generation.
I'm currently playing the game. It's awesome.
Demoed this game last night, reminded me why I love platformers so bloody much (I did learn how to play games off platformers after all, like most of you I'm sure) If only I could afford to buy it...
great game, can't vait for 3ds version IN 3D!!! :)
Amazon has this for $39.99 right now! Lightning deal check it out!
Playing now, picked it up at GameStop for 40 bucks, me and my kid has already played through 1 world. It's great.
