Rayman Legends Review
Posted: A year ago, last updated 12 weeks ago.
You play through the 120 levels, with up to four players work together to run, jump and attack their way through the level. Collecting items offers a higher score and can unlock new worlds. You can add an assist character, Murfy, who can help by cutting through ropes, activating mechanisms and grabbing hold of enemies. You control him via the Wii U Gamepad, the Vita's front touch screen or Dualshock 4 touchpad respectively. You can't use Murfy as a helper in this way on the Switch -- although he is still present in his specific levels.
Some of the levels are build around a combination of running, jumping and attacking in time with the music. Getting this right enables you to score more points and create music as you play.
There is a popular football themed mini game where you play a full contact version of football with the Rayman characters. On the Nintendo Switch version, this has an additional Solo and Tournament Mode for pitting up to eight teams against each other.
Players: You can play with 5 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. 4 players can play on the same screen co-op on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. On Wii U you can have 5 players with the additional helper player using the Gamepad.
