Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3 | Edition: Standard Edition

Manufacturer's Description

Michel Ancel, celebrated creator of Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil and the Raving Rabbids returns to his roots to bring us Rayman Origins: a high-definition, 2D side-scrolling, platforming adventure in full 4-player co-op!

Play Rayman Origins and discover or rediscover the magical universe and legendary 2D gameplay that captured the hearts of millions of fans...

When the Glade of Dreams is overrun by “nefurrious”Darktoons, the Fairy Council hastily invokes Rayman to save the day; but the hero of light isn’t quite all there…To help him, Rayman teams up with his best friend, Globox, and two crafty wizards, the Teensies. Together, the world’s most hilarious team of heroes will need to restore peace to the Glade or watch as their beloved home vanishes like a bad dream...

Features:

  • Rebirth of a Platforming Legend: Rayman Origins brings back many of the classic characters, revived in their original 2D form, as well as a whole new world of characters and environments. Discover the roots of Rayman by collecting pieces of the Glade’s history, and assemble them to reveal the truth behind Rayman’s origins.
  • 4-Player, Jump-In/Jump-Out, Co-op Gameplay: Play as Rayman in the solo campaign, or have up to three friends jump in at any time to play as Globox or as one of the two Teensies. Players can leave at any time without affecting the others’ progression.
  • Unique Approach to 2D Art: A rich world with over 100 characters and 12 unique environments created by some of the videogaming’s most reputed artists and animators. This creative approach to 2D design will recapture the hearts of platformer fans and introduce a new generation to a much-loved characters in his original 2D form.
  • A Vast Playground: Rayman Origins includes over 60 levels of 2D platforming gameplay designed for all ages and playing styles.
  • Unlock new abilities progressively and return to previous levels to discover new paths and secrets.
  • Variety of Gameplay: Rayman Origins is a platformer at its core, but it has elements of many game genres. Rayman, Globox and the Teensies gain unique abilities as they progress through the adventure, including swimming, diving and the sensational “HairlyCopter.” The game also features many elements of action, adventure and beat-’em-up gameplay.
  • Epic Boss Fights:A giant pink monster with hundreds of eyes... A possessed, mountainous golem... An evil daisy-cum-carnivorous plant...Rayman Origins will put players to the test with these and many more challenging boss battles!
  • A Handful of Highly Talented Artists and Engineers: Rayman Origins was developed by the UBIart team in Montpellier and is built on an open-source game engine—the UBIart Framework—designed by Michel Ancel to allow much smaller teams of artists and developers to produce incredibly high-quality graphics and gameplay quickly and efficiently. This garage-game approach has led to great strides in creativity and innovation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rayman Origins. A Diamond in all the Rubbish. 26 Nov 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The current generation of video games and consoles have left me slightly cold as of late. Having been a gamer most of my life, I have recently become a little disenchanted by what has been made available to us these past 5 years. In the PS2 days all I wanted from the next generation was improved graphics, faster load times and more of the same with what I was playing all ready. Instead, the current generation has become swamped with endless loading screens, unskippable business logos, constant firmware updates, and DLC offers on the day of release. I feel I spend more time waiting these days than I do actually playing.

Thank the heavens for Rayman Origins. I have been waiting years for a game like this. With very little loading times, the game starts you off almost immediately and it is quite simply a joy to play. It looks stunning too. Origins is a simple 2D traditional platforming game. There is no online multiplayer to speak of. Instead the game encourages you to play the traditional way; with friends and family around you. It's the type of game I grew up with and the kind of game I want to see more of in the future.

My concern is that people will overlook this title in favour of the same old same old we've been getting every year for the last 5 years. You all know what I'm talking about. Get off your Call of Dutys and Battlefields. Take a break from post apocalyptic sandboxes and play a game that deserves to be played.

I'm not a reviewer. I find it difficult to express what I think of a game or how best to explain what it is about. But I felt the need to let people know about this game. It is a release that has been met with critical acclaim that's at risk of being overlooked by the big name games you have all played before. Rayman Origins deserves your time, and it deserves that you give it the time to play both on your own and with your nearest and dearest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 27 Nov 2011
By Kflap
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Why not buy this game? Go on buy it. Its stunning, hilarious and a quality game. Don't know what to say. I will refrain from comparing it to Little Big Planet because they are completely different and there is nothing like it at the moment. This game is best described strangely enough as forward. You never go backwards its fast paced its exciting and more importantly a blast. All the hand drawn art is great and fits so well into the Rayman series. While I would of preferred a more Rayman 2 or 3 type of game; taking the series back to its roots was definitely a good idea. Its long enough to be worth the money but short enough that you and friends can complete it without getting tired. There is tons of things to collect and do and will keep you occupied for a long time.

Worth a purchase by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2D platforming at its best 6 Dec 2011
By possessed.by.a.lemon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been a tough start for Rayman Origins after failing to chart in the midst of the pre-Christmas rush. Being sent out to battle against Mario and Sonic is a tough call for any platform star. Here's the thing, though. Rayman Origins gets my vote for platform game of the year. Buzzing with ideas, bursting with graphical splendour and charming with gorgeous sound, it's non-stop fun from start to finish.

In recent years, many of the best platformers have gone leftfield, with the likes of Limbo and Braid leading the way. Origins' rich humour and painterly visions provide a similar artistic flair here, but this is all backed up by a classic mainstream gameplay experience that can and will be loved by all the family, especially through the 4-player mode. Not that this means you'll enjoy it any less on your own as someone who grew up in the 16-bit Golden Age of the genre and wants to appreciate the finest love letter to that period going around today. I can vouch for that. (And, yes, I know Rayman is technically from the 32-bit era, but he was writing fan mail to the previous generation back then.)

Challenging but never unfair, Ubisoft has come up with some of the best pure platforming I've played in a long time. Origins has the smarts of Mario and, in places, the speed of Sonic. It also has perhaps the best underwater levels I've ever seen. There'll be no sighing like there is with Sonic as soon as you dive into the wet stuff, instead there will be awe. 'Swimming With Stars' is a tour de force of gameplay, graphics and sound combined, but only one of many highlights. Yes, there are the expected tropes of ice, lava, jungles, but that's what you want, especially when they come with the refreshing new twists and stunning HD layouts offered here.

There's nothing to fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy purist 18 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Simple, beautiful, fun, engaging and memorable. All adjectives which as as 12 year old I would've used to describe Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd In Miracle World and Super Mario 3 - if I'd been cleverer.

20 years on those words are seldom appropriate for modern video (computer) games. Thankfully, they are perfect here. I don't play games to experience the thrill of shooting innocent human beings, I play them to escape to a world where my imagination has a chance to breathe. Maybe kids are smirking as they kill someone from distance in Call Of Duty, but the smile on my face playing this game is born from the joy of playing a game that reminds me why I fell in love with them in the first place.

It's not the new punk. It's not going to change your life. It's a platform game; just a very, very good platform game.

Granted, the fact this is a 2-D platformer released in 2011 owes a lot to Little Big Planet's existence and will undoubtedly draw comparisons, but this is a purists game. Enjoy.
