The fact that someone has gone to the trouble to try and effect the score of the 360 version compared to other versions is just sad.

I've bought it and its exactly the same, the Vita is the only version where levels were cut, but this is a known.
The 360 version is every bit as good at the PS3 version, sure, the game was made for the Wii U, so the controls will always be more suited to that system, but they been re-designed for 360/PS3 and PC and work pretty well.

Certainly, if you have never played the Wii U version, you'd never know anyway.
The 360 version DOES run in 1080p, and is NOT up scaled at all, so that information is totally false too. Both the 360 and the PS3 run at full HD 1080p, if anything its the Wii U version that suffers visually in comparison to other systems and PC.

To us a Quote From Eurgamer:
"All of these nuances are replicated expertly across all platforms. So from a visual perspective the only difference of note is the gamma set-up between platforms and the Wii U's limited-range RGB output. The 360 version features an image richer in contrast, where dark shadow details are slightly crushed due to the system's trademark higher gamma curve. Meanwhile, the Wii U game can look washed out on TVs that don't correctly support limited-range RGB over HDMI. It's also worth pointing out that on the PC there are no additional graphical enhancements, with the ability to adjust resolution and to run the game in windowed mode being the only options available."

So to sum up, the controls certainly aren't a good enough reason to buy a Wii U to play it on over any other version, that's for sure.

But it is a great game, its a shame some people can't just stay focused on that, instead of trying to slam one particular version into the ground.

I really can't think of anything negative to say about this excellent game, so here are the positives...

PROS: + Gorgeous graphics
+ Great gameplay
+ LOADS of content - As well as the main game there are also lots of "remastered" levels (around 40) from the previous game, Rayman Origins (which itself was a great game). As if that wasn't enough there's also the HUGELY addictive daily/weekly challenges (which absolutely exude that "one more go" factor), and finally there's the "Invasion" levels. These are kind of "remixed" versions of levels you've already completed, only this time you have to save - against the clock - some teensies strapped to fireworks! This game will keep you going for ages.
+ The end-of-world music levels are brilliant and will have you grinning ear-to-ear
+ Lots of stuff to unlock, including many playable characters
+ Far better menus/level select screens than Origins, so everything is easy to find and most stuff is also only a shortcut away via the Y button.
+ The game constantly comes up with new ideas as you progress, keeping you interested as you wonder what they will come up with next.
+ Load times are very quick (though I do have my game installed)

CONS: - There is no difficulty setting, so the harder/later levels MAY frustrate some players. Saying that, the game has generous checkpoints and as far as I can tell you have unlimited lives.

Rayman Legends takes everything that was great about Origins and hones it to perfection. With so much content and teensies to find this game will keep you entertained for quite some time.

This is simply a stunning game. Lots of fun, creative gameplay and addictive levels. The mix of running-style levels and conventional platforming is done well. Arguably, there's too much bias towards lots of running, but still good. The only downside is the green dude who occasionaly shows up to 'help'. The bottom line is that you'll find youself controlling two characters at once - this can be uber challenging on some of the more difficult levels (and get frustrating!). But, as platforming games go I should mention that it compares with Mario and the other very best ones out there (Megaman etc) and in overall terms if you're playing co-op it is way way easier than those titles.

Rayman, Globox and the Teensies are back to embark on a new fantasy adventure through a series of legendary worlds with new environments, characters and enemies.

Rayman Legends is a delightful platformer, and one of the best I’ve ever played. Thanks to clever level design that toys with genre conventions, it gets incredible mileage out of four basic moves. And with great local co-op and dozens of unlockables – including stages from Rayman Origins, special character skins, and mini-games – there’s a lot to do. The difficulty is so smoothly balanced that it can be played with with kids or adult friends and still have a great time.

Rayman Legends is a rare masterpiece! It is one of these games that gets almost everything perfectly. For those of you who haven’t been blessed to play it, I’ll let you know what platforming greatness you’ve been missing out on; Rayman Legends is a 2-d platformer that gives Donkey Kong Country’s breathtaking graphics, Mega Man’s creative level design and Mario’s entreating gameplay a run for their money. Rayman Legends is a sequel to another great game called Rayman Origins,that made Rayman’s character popular again. Does Legends meet the expectations fans had for a sequel to Origins? For me, it surpasses them. It is really close to absolute perfection.
The plot is as follows; the Dark Teensy from the first game has not only returned, but created new nightmares as well as copies of himself to guard them. He has also kidnapped the good Teensies to serve his willing. The Bubble Dreamer commands Murfy to alarm Rayman and his friends to take action and help them defeat evil while resquing as many Teensies as possible. Weird, simple and goofy. Just the way I like the story for a platformer.
The gameplay is not changed very much from Origins but a few things have changed. For starters,there are no flying stages, the high score for each level is much easier to achieve than in Origins and the inclusion of the Invasion Levels just to mention some. As one can gather from the plot, in each level there are several Teensies to free. When you add up all the Teensies in the game, there are 700 to collect. I know that sounds a lot, but, with the exception of one or two special cases, they are not much of a stretch to get.
It’s the definition of platforming. Rayman is the absolute best gaming franchise of all time. Because, for every good Sonic game out there, there’s a bad one to contrast it. Rayman has always been gold. Each game he makes is great, and, since I stated that Rayman is the best franchise in video games and Rayman Legends is the best platformer from the best series of platformers,that means for me that Rayman Legends is, without a doubt, the best game of all time!! If you’re a fan of platformers, Rayman legends is excellent. It is a 100% perfect game that will not disappoint you.

Rayman Legends manages both to improve on the excellent Rayman Origins, but also introduce new challenges, gameplay mechanics and levels.

The gameplay is as fast and dynamic as ever, with levels that rise and fall and propel you onwards. There are more lums to collect, teensies to rescue from cages, hidden places in the levels to explore and lots of replay value. Your sidekick Murfy turns up often to add a new layer of strategy to the stages. You control when he activates platforms and other objects to help you progress, and learning when to time his actions is another skill you will quickly master.

Legends is smooth and fluid, running at 60fps and full 1080p, using UbiArt's gorgeous 2d framework for the perfect experience. The visuals are lovely and hand painted, with deep, rich colours, brush stroke textures and crisp outlines. You half want to concentrate on your character and half want to take in the sheer detail and work that has been put into building the world. To create a sense of depth, the backgrounds are also similarly complex and impressive, with much happening in the distance with countless characters and moving bits of scenery. There is a fantastic sense of life and motion created through the animation and skill with particle effects.

The themes, colours, obstacles and enemies change as the worlds do, meaning each stage feels fresh. Also impressive is the sound design, with a catchy and well-suited soundtrack, complemented by its unique sound effects. The humour of the designers really comes through in the characters, their cartoony style, their exaggerated movements, the mime-like conveying of information and over-the-top harmless violence are great fun.

Gamers who enjoyed Rayman Origins will love this next title and those new to the series will be sucked in as well. New features include rotation puzzles, a fun scratch card mini game which determines your rewards after completing levels and some re-mastered levels from Origins with new things to find inside. The difficulty level is also relatively challenging, especially on single player, which should impress more hardcore gamers who came to Rayman several console generations ago. The game is perhaps most entertaining when you are playing local co-op with friends to get through the mind-meltingly fast and intense jumping sections.

It has to be the best-looking 2d game on Xbox 360.

First off yes it is obviously a port of a Wii game but ignore that one star review. He lies about it being pale. It really isn't.
The gameplay is great and the parts in which you would be using your tablet thing (seriously what is that) for the Wii you simply press B to perform that action (a lot more fun that it sounds). This can be a little broken at times but in general you won't have a problem.
Unlike origins there isn't any effort to put in a story which did make me feel a little detatched from the game. It felt like I was just trawling through random levels.
There are different hubs where you jump into paintings which form the levels. As before you had to collect and find the teensies and the lums to get a perfect score and this is the origins that I fell in love with. Each hub plane has a musical level at the end of it which is fantastic and was the thing I looked forward to the most.
There are also 40 origins levels added on as Legends wasn't originally going to be released for xbox.
Other than that if you collect 450 lums on a level you get a scratch card where you can win an origins level, a teensie, some lums or a creature which gives you lums daily.
Last of all is the online multiplayer which is incredible. There is a daily challenge and based on your score compared to the world you will win a lump sum of lums (your goal is 1000000) this is addictive and the thing that will keep people playing for a long time to come.
Definitely worth a buy

I am a long time gamer and took great joy from playing Rayman Origins last yea with three friends, and it was a no brainer for me to get the second instalment.

The game definitely lives up to it's predecessor, more levels, more colour, more charm, more music. The differences may not be noticeable but go back and try Origins after playing Legends, they have clearly put a lot of love into this game. There are some gripes. The Triky Treasure levels are gone, but the musical stages are exremely enjoyable replacements (just not quite as hard). The Murphy sections are a bit odd. I can see it adding some challenge to single player runs, but they slow down the action somewhat. Still it adds some extra havoc between friends when you haven't decided who will control him and he turns up and everything falls apart. Also, Kung-foot, the simplicity and brilliance of it... just buy this and try it yourself!

A breath of fresh air in a medium bloated with online-multiplayer first person shooters. I was never a Rayman fan, but this game and it's predecessor have re-kindled the simple joy getting 3 friends round have having some good clean fun.

The platforming arena is no longer owned by Mario or Sonic IMO, Rayman now rules the roost. With this game he smashes it right out of the park, I would say it even surpasses the quality of Mario Galaxy. Legends is challenging, but unlike Origins I never felt it was frustrating or unfair. Also unlike Origins, the visuals are not all hand-drawn but are complimented by some CGI - but it's all so seemless that it never fails to look stunningly sumptuous. The controls may be described as floaty but they are absolutely perfect. If you were deciding which version to choose between the Wii U or PS3/Xbox, it's all down to personal preference but personally, I would choose the PS3/Xbox as I feel the Wii U's touchscreen controls on the occasional levels where Rayman collaborates with his sidekick Murphy are at odds with the other levels. The PS3/Xbox versions requires just a single button press and this creates a really fun additional challenge that keeps the pace cracking along nicely. Buy this game and make it the success it deserves to be - Rayman for Game of the Year!
