Rayman Origins (3DS)

Rayman Origins (3DS)

More of this sort of thing, please.

I’m becoming increasingly bored with the way gaming is going. Grim first and third person shooters aren’t what I’m after anymore (or ever was, come to think of it), and games like those on the Megadrive and SNES are missed. Thankfully, there are a few game makers who seem to agree, and things like Rayman Origins happen. Happy fun blue skies platforming, with excellent up to date graphics. That’s what we need!

Bizarrely, I was never really a fan of Rayman. Never liked the Jaguar game, never liked the N64 or Dreamcast games, and only really liked the series at all when the Rabbids took over. No Rabbids here, but that’s not important.

What is important is how fantastic a platformer this is. Varied levels. Difficult sections, but not impossible all of the time. Items just-out-of-reach. Things to collect, but not too many things. A few extra abilities unlocked as you go. Silliness. Awesome music and sound effects. All in 3D on a handheld.

Not really sure what more you could ask for, really. Unless it all goes wrong after the first three worlds – I’m on the third at the moment, you see.
