      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.

      Fun family-friendly game

      My kids are loving this game! I love it because I know it's family-friendly and inoffensive. It's a nice break from some of the other things they play that I have to constantly monitor. I have three kids and they love that they can play this together. They've played the regular game mode but really seem to enjoy the "soccer" mode the most--they get very competitive with it! It's also nice because it manages to engage all three of my kids, even though the oldest is 11 and the youngest is 6. They have a lot of fun playing together and no complaints that it's too hard or too simple! If you're a parent looking for a nice, fun game that will keep your kids involved (like me)--especially if there's a wide range of ages--then this game is for you! Bonus that we got it at a great price (thanks Gamers Club!).

      One Of My Favorite Games

      This is one of my favorite games. I purchased this on the Wii U and again for the Nintendo Switch because it is one of the best platformers out there. The controls are tight, artwork and style are quirky and humorous, and theres a sense if satisfaction when you sequence various platform techniques together. Among my favorite stages are the end of “zones” where the platforminf and level is musically linked to a rendition of a song such as “Eye of the Tiger”. I have collected every collectable in the game but still play periodically as there is new content daily with challenges. An extra bonus is there are some additional levels here taken from some of the best from Rayman Origins. I wish this game had been more financially productive so Ubisoft would be investing in future Rayman games in this style. This is must have for the Switch

      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.

      Fantastic Platformer now made Portable

      As a kid I loved playing Rayman on my GameBoy. Through the years platformers have started to lose their appeal to me, but recently with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Rayman: Legends I can confidently say platformers are back. Now they may never return to the level of prominence they had in the 90s, but this game and the aforementioned DKC: TF have developers that really understand the fun mechanics that can make these games feel like more than simply running and jumping your way to the end of the level. The musical levels that are at the end of each world are some of the best and jumping to the tune of Black Betty is extremely enjoyable. The definitive edition is packed with content and even includes some levels remastered from Rayman: Origins.

      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!
