    Pros: Engaging, Fun

    Cons:

    Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    My son really enjoyed it. Great game - his words not mine ;-) He has played the previous versions and said this was the best one yet. Great from my point of view - kept him occupied!

From the manufacturer:

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 game play 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...


Key Features

Rebirth of a Platforming Legend
It’s been 15 years since the first launch of Rayman.  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 VG’s mostreputed artists and animators.  This creative approach to 2D design will recapture the hearts of platformer fans and introduce a new generation to one of the industry’s best-loved characters in his original 2D form.

A Vast Playground
Rayman Origins includes over 60 levelsof 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.
