Hey, guys. Sorry for the infrequent blogging. I've just kind of been busy with life, and other things going on around the forums. Plus, I think I kind of come down with something. So, I'm gonna try to keep today's entry short and sweet by explaining my feelings on the Rayman games being made today. I just need to get some sleep.
So, I'll go back a few years to Rayman Origins. For those who haven't played it, Rayman Origins is a 2-D side-scrolling platformer adventure released on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and I think the Wii and 3DS, though I'm not sure.
Anyways, I bought this game a couple years ago during the Christmas season. You know those gifts that you put on your Christmas list so that it just fills up space on it? Yeah, I did that for Origins a few years back. But, once I finally played it, I realized what a HUGE mistake I made by putting it on the list for that reason. I think that most of the aspects of Rayman Origins are pretty tight. The backgrounds and stages are extremely beautiful and vivid, the level design is difficult at times, but fair, the controls are by no means slippery or stiff. In fact, I think that they're just right for a platformer. I honestly think it's one of the best modern day platformers yet.
Now, Rayman Legends already looks like an awesome sequel. From playing the demo, the game looks even more gorgeous and it controls about as good as the last title. Though, I won't be able to play it until Christmas, since I'm getting the Wii U (I've been told that that version is the best one out of all of them.)
