Rayman Legends Review

Rayman Legends is a platform game, the sequel to Rayman Origins, where you get sucked into a painting that takes you to a fantasy world with all sorts of creative running and jumping challenges.

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.
