    Amazing platform game

    This is one of the best and most underrated games on the switch. Crisp and highly detailed graphics combined with plentiful music and a great story make this a must have game. The graphics quality in both foreground and background are stunning with no jagged edges like some other nintendo games, and the music really fits the levels well. There is a ton of variety in collecting lums and teensies to unlock a whole bunch of extra content. The levels themselves are huge and very different, ranging from forests to dungeons to underwater. There are many secrets to discover in each level to collect all the trophies. I am almost done with legends and have two more worlds left, but as you play this game, you also slowly unlock paintings from origins. So I suspect I have a whole new game waiting after the main version is done. All around very well done and seems like it was made for the switch. The levels play super smooth, the only slowdown I saw was for a few seconds in the beginning of the loading screens. An update fixes this if it bothers you, but you have less time then to sometimes collect a heart container before the game starts. This is no kid game, many of the levels are very difficult and will have you pulling out your hair and maybe throwing your switch. But eventually are beatable with practice. You will die a lot in this game, and there is a fail counter in the stats screen if you get curious. There are many checkpoints in each level so dying does not mean you restart from the beginning thankfully. Time attack levels are the worst and very challenging. The replay value is high for some worlds, just depends which are your favorites. Overall this is one of the best games out on the switch now. It even makes use of the touchscreen for an entire world. Definitely worth the price for a masterpiece of a game, especially if you were disappointed that there was no 2D mario on the switch.

    Fun Game!

    I was not planning on getting this game at release since it is essentially a four year old game that can be found cheaper on every other console (and PC). However, I decided to get it because I had some Best Buy Reward Points that were expiring this week. That along with the Gamer's club discount made this an inexpensive purchase for me. I played a couple levels tonight and have to say, on top of it being fun, its a very good looking game. If you are into platformers then you should like this game. Best part (for me) is that I can play it in handheld mode without difficulty or issues. I only mention this because I'm unable to play Splatoon 2 in handheld mode due to the controls and Lego City Undercover due to getting motion sickness. I've read (on other sites) people complain about the loading screens but at first, I didn't even realize there were loading screens. The loading screens allows you to move your character through a silhouetted "level". They aren't very long (maybe 10 seconds) so IMO, not worth complaining about.

    Truly Definitive

    PROS: This game is fantastic. I am an experienced gamer with tons of platform games under my belt, and my wife is a novice who barely plays games. Together, we are able to play cooperatively and it somehow allows us both to be challenged at our respective skill levels. CONS: My biggest gripe is that you can easily reset all your game data from the main menu. I am terrified that I am going to accidentally wipe away the data by clicking the wrong prompt, or that a child will come over and play our Switch and erase all the data. Additionally, there does not seem to be much replay value, but I have yet to finish the game, so I may be wrong about that. OVERALL: Despite one curious decision to make it too easy to delete all your data, this game is entirely solid. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a "family" platformer or side-scroller. NOTE: I am the 418th customer to review this game on Best Buy. There is yet for any reviewer to give this game "1 star." That should tell you something about its quality.

    One of the best Rayman games

    The game is quite well made, possibly the best Rayman game ...well I kinda bounce between it and Origins because they're so well made and charming. But the Switch version has issues and it's down to Ubisoft and compression. Rayman is a platformer with wonderful momentum, it's simple but gets very challenging with it's level design in the later game. You got a punch a spinning punch which you do while holding run (gives you more speed to boost) a jump obviously and a hover, there's other powers that come and go and you get the jist of it. Your goal is to save as many of a these characters that are in every level, they're ...the Stars of Mario so to speak. They allow you to play more levels when you get more. You also collect lums which are pretty much points that unlock other things such as Rayman Origins levels. The visuals are great, the action is great, levels are wonderful and the characters are charming as heck and there's a lot of skins on variety for each of them.

    This is called the "Definitive Edition" of Rayman Legends because it's the only version that gives the option of playing using the touchscreen or non-touch controls, for the levels that include touchscreen elements. (The levels in the main game are in non-touch mode; you use the A button to activate a touch element when near it; however, there is an option called "Murfy's Touch" on the main menu, which contains the touchscreen versions of all levels with touch elements. In the touchscreen version, an AI-controlled character traverses the level, and you move the touch-controlled platforms and other elements to aid him.) This version also includes the entirety of Rayman Origins via in-game unlockables, so the entire new Rayman experience is included. This is a great value for a great platforming series!

    Classic Platforming Fun

    I've been a long time fan of Rayman. I loved the original on Playstation and beat 2 for the N64 and 3 for the Gamecube at least 3 times each. I had never played Origins and when my friend recommended Legends, I was hesitant. However, I can say that this is hands down the greatest 2-d platformer you will find on the Switch. This game is incredible fun, with slick visuals, challenging levels and tons of rewards. This is also great fun for friends. My friend and I have been playing co-op every time he's over, and I could very much imagine me as a child bringing this game to my grandma's, playing co-op table top mode with my sister. This is great fun for people of all ages and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to play a solid platformer, whether they're a gaming novice or a hardcore old school platforming fanatic.

    Great Game

    The game is a blast to play. I haven't played the other versions (ps3, ps4, xboxone, etc.), so I cant tell you how this one compares. The extra modes such as the soccer game can be played against a friend or against a bot...repetitive...but really fun. The framerate doesn't seem to be 60, but I haven't experienced any game-breaking frame drops or bugs. The graphics are gorgeous, especially docked at 1080. One thing I tell everyone though, the Switch gets very hot when in docked mode and 1080 mode. If you turn down the video settings on your switch to 720p, the game will not be quite as sharp, but it seems as if the Switch runs a little cooler. Great game overall.

    Review from child

    It's actually pretty fun and action packed. Unlike the Rayman Origin, this one has new levels, story line, different game modes (sports, you can replay certain levels in Rayman Origins), and a lot of new characters. One downside for some of the parents who disagree with their children playing this (from what I've read from other reviews), some of the characters are sexualized a little bit, being that one is wearing a bra (whatever you want to call it) and you can see it's cleavage. Other than this, the is pretty fun. Again, I like the action of the game, the new add-ons and the fact that I can go back to certain levels of Rayman Origins.
