Rayman Origins propose un défi intéressant et assez long - proche de la dizaine d’heures - sans être insurmontable pour les joueurs du dimanche. Certes, certains passeront peut être à côté de quelques niveaux bonus très agréables comme la chasse aux coffres ou la Lande aux Esprits Frappés, un nom qui reflète très bien ce jeu loufoque. Si vous aviez encre un doute sur la capacité à vous divertir avec Rayman Origins, n’hésitez plus. Foncez !

There are games that have no hype, come out of nowhere and are better than anyone expects them to be. Ico. Rez. Psychonauts. Rayman Origins now joins that list. In years to come, make sure you are one of the smart people who were ahead of everyone else and got this game before it became a collectors item. Now that I am finished, I’m almost scared to go back to previous Rayman games just in case they don’t live up to how wonderful this game is. If they do then I feel like I’ve really got a lot of awesome to catch up on. Make sure YOU don’t miss out on THIS.

Rayman Origins can be summed up in one word: Glorious. Whether you're into your platforming games or not, and no matter what you think of the blonde-haired buffoon, this game is most definitely worth your time. Miss this at your peril.

Rayman Origins is an astonishingly good platformer that's guaranteed to bring joy to all who play it. If you don't like this game, you have no soul.

To put it more succinctly: if you already own Rayman: Origins, this is just Rayman: Origins again, and you probably don't need to buy it a second time. If you don't, and are looking for an interesting, single-player-only platformer for your new Sony-branded toy, Rayman: Origins isn't merely recommended; it's necessary.

If you have any love for 2D platformers — and the idea of getting your friends together for an encore of New Super Mario Bros. Wii’s four-player action appeals to you — you’ll pick up Rayman Origins straight away. It represents the very pinnacle of 2D platforming and is undoubtedly one of the Wii’s very best games. Truly unmissable.

Ce jeu, c’est de la joie. La perfection technique du titre, le travail considérable qui a forcément été nécessaire, et le talent de ses auteurs ne visent pas à autre chose. Ce Rayman Origins, c’est un grand bol d’air frais, un jeu fait très sérieusement, mais qui ne se prend pas au sérieux. Une ambiance décalée, des graphismes stylés, mais des mécanismes de jeu calibrées et étudiées au pixel près. S’arrêter de jouer est un déchirement : sans qu’on s’en rende compte on peut rester un temps considérable manette en main tellement on ne voit pas le temps passer. Rayman Origins devrait être obligatoire : c’est tout simplement un jeu qui rend heureux, et un des meilleurs titres de 2011.

A classic genre made contemporary with a fantastic new art style and graphics engine. Mixed together with a deep system of hidden items to collect makes for a very rich game that is easy to forgive for its a lack of online capability.

Regardless of how you choose to play Rayman Origins, the important thing is that it should be played. Characters speak in Pig Latin. Upon discovering each secret area, an unseen audience expresses my unspoken thoughts, collectively cooing, "oooh!" The underwater sections have appropriately burbly background vocals. I couldn't possibly enumerate them all, but every detail, every nuance is positively dripping with goofy, heart-swelling joy. I don't know about you, but I could always use more of that.

It's easy to call Rayman: Origins some kind of love letter to the genre, but truth be told, I doubt Ubisoft would be dumping Origins at retail during a period filled with much higher-profile blockbuster releases were the publisher so head-over-heels for the game. It's a little bit tragic that Origins wasn't released during a window where it could breathe a bit more freely, and take a bit of its own spotlight, away from the blinding lights of the Assassin's Creeds, Modern Warfares, and even Super Mario Lands of the world. Origins' hours of wonderfully crafted entertainment deserve to be seen, to be played, and to be enjoyed by as wide of an audience as possible. Seek this one out.

Don't hesitate to pick up Rayman: Origins, because it's worth it. The eight to 10 hour campaign and replayable challenges will enrapture and challenge you and there's more than enough here to make you smile and laugh. It's bold in this day and age to make a 2D platformer, but it's even bolder to make a game that throws constant joy in the player's face. There are no brown or dark tones here, only smiling characters, bright environments and catchy music.

It’s a shame Rayman Origins came out during the busiest time of year with all the other huge games now out, as it’s sure to be overlooked, but if you love platforming games, pick this up without hesitation. If you’re strapped for cash because of the holidays, get it as soon as you’re able, it’s that good and easily justifies its price tag. You won’t find a better 2D platformer with a more unique visual style. I’m glad this game landed on my desk to review, as I really enjoyed this stand out title in this busy season.

Rayman Origins is a rare breed indeed. In a culture obsessed with realism and violent action and FPS titles it’s great to see a major studio take a risk and release an old-school platform game for a next-gen system. The Wii may have their Mario games but now 360 and PS3 gamers can finally get a taste of some classic gaming goodness in what is easily the best platform game of 2011 and the best Rayman game of all time. You simply must play this game!

Une petite merveille, tout simplement. Rayman Origins est ce qui se fait de mieux en matière de plates-formes 2D. Beau à se damner, intelligent, drôle, accessible mais pas condescendant le bébé d'Ubisoft Montpellier constitue un sans-faute, un jeu d'une qualité rare que tout joueur se devrait de posséder dans sa ludothèque. Ce succès, le soft le doit à son redoutable level design ainsi qu'à sa bonne humeur permanente. Déjà brillant en solo, Rayman Origins prend d'ailleurs une toute autre dimension dès lors qu'on le pratique avec des potes en coopération. En somme, c'est une véritable cure de jouvence qui nous est proposée ici, un jeu qui vous laissera le sourire aux lèvres et des étoiles dans les yeux.

Michel Ancel nous livre là un jeu qui parvient à redonner tout son sens au terme " chef d'œuvre ". Graphiquement sublime (sûrement l'un des plus beaux jeux 2D jamais sortis, si ce n'est LE plus beau), bénéficiant d'un level-design particulièrement soigné, d'un univers onirique et enchanteur, de musiques et thèmes tantôt planant et beaux, tantôt amusant et fun, ainsi que d'une jouabilité et d'un gameplay se renouvelant sans cesse, Rayman Origins respecte parfaitement les codes du jeu de plate-formes en y ajoutant sa propre touche. En raison de toutes ces qualités, Rayman Origins se place comme le meilleur jeu de plate-formes de ces dernières années, tout simplement. On peut dire que pour un come-back, c'est réussi. Messieurs les développeurs, bravo et surtout, merci.

For nostalgic reasons alone, Rayman Origins is a must-have for the platformer fan. Before playing Rayman, I never considered myself a “fan”, per se, but I also didn’t realize, until now, that platformers are my gaming roots. All other games have grown from those roots, and have been nurtured over the years so that I may enjoy the popular games of today. It’s my hope that maybe, just maybe, Rayman Origins can pull some kids away from the shooters so that they can appreciate the genre that started it all, for most of us at least. Simply put, Rayman Origins has every right to copy the moniker given to soccer/European Football: it’s The Beautiful Game of the video game world.

Rayman Origins is a breath of fresh air and a sigh of relief for fans of platformers. It's comforting to know that in an age when the FPS is king and single player is becoming less common, a decent-length and well-crafted game -- in a genre from an age past -- is as excellent, good looking, and smooth playing as Origins. Like Dark Souls, it's a perfect marriage of old-school game design paired with modern technology. It's quirky, fun, and beautiful. It's a must-play.

Returning to the roots of the series has proved a masterstroke by Ubisoft Montpellier. Whilst the Rabbids were not to everyone’s tastes, and Rayman was pushed to a supporting role in an annoying move, Rayman Origins provides a brilliant case as to why he should still be the main focus. It really is amazing. People who say platformers are dead or lack the charm they once had should play it then shut up and fall in love with the title, like any sane person would.

Rayman: Origins is the best designed, most accessible, vast, gameplay rich and fun platformer that I’ve played in a very long time. It’s nothing short of a Nintendo A-list (which I still think of as the best platforming game developer ever to have graced the market) and could be the beginning of a beautiful series.

Origins' brilliance is it keeps that simplicity on the surface, but ends up feeling incredibly varied thanks to its level design. As you play, it becomes increasingly obvious that the levels don't waste your time by asking you to repeat actions. Sure, you jump on a lot of heads and punch a lot of guys, but the levels constantly provide new toys to play with, and then remodel them in multiple ways before you have time to lose interest.

Overall, Rayman Origins is a solid side-scrolling game for the Wii. It features both a highly entertaining and challenging platform experience. It is a wonderfully crafted game that looks fantastic for a Wii game. While Rayman Origin does not have an online multiplayer mode and could be a little too hard for some, it is a great excuse to have someone over to play and have fun together much like many of us used to do when platforming games ruled the gaming world.

Ubisoft’s Rayman Origins for the PS Vita is an excellent portable game, plain and simple. The visuals are incredible, the sound is just as strong, and the gameplay is addictive with tight controls. I didn’t want to stop playing this game. There is no doubt that the omission of multiplayer is somewhat saddening, but given the PS Vita version is meant for those on the go, many will not miss this feature, although I did somewhat. Rayman has made the transition to the world of portable gaming in style, and if you are picking up a PS Vita during the official launch, or sometime there after, you can do no wrong by picking up this title at the same time.

Rayman Origins really is something special. It's captured all of the true charm and magic from the original and brought it up to speed with modern day technology. It is a fantastic game, if not a little infuriating attimes, and truly needs to be played. Any fan of Rayman, even those of the Rabbid spin offs, isn't going to be disappointed, and those new to the franchise are in for a treat. It's a great launching point, so for fans of the original who want to initiate their kids/friends, it's a great place to start. A definite must for Christmas wishlists. Although he doesn't poke his tongue out any more. What's with that?

Rayman Origins isn’t as fresh an experience now as it would have been in November, but give it a shot and you’ll have no trouble seeing why Ubisoft decided to give such a great game another chance to find the audience it deserves.

Simply put, Rayman Origins is one hot box of rocks. Arguably, it is PlayStation Vita's best launch game, a content and graphically rich experience that serves as a loyal handheld companion, perfectly suited for long or short play sessions.

It's a shame about the lack of multiplayer, but Rayman Origins is still 2D platforming at this console generation's finest. This is a huge, deep, challenging, artfully crafted masterpiece that is now portable, which opens the door for even more gamers to get lost in its goofy and delightful world. If you've somehow missed Rayman Origins in last year's crowded holiday release season, and you plan on getting a PlayStation Vita, make sure you include this in your launch day purchases. This game is too lovely to be missed.

PS VitaGames Radar
The Vita version also includes a new collectible type that required us to tap the screen once we found it – a nice addition. And it eliminates the co-op multiplayer. For some, that’s a big loss, but not so for us. The multiplayer was the weakest feature of the original game, often leading to chaotic, unmanageable action that might be fun in small doses but wasn’t really practical for completing the game. Then again, players can complete with a Ghost mode, challenging one another to best each other’s times. We’re not sure if that makes up for the missing multiplayer, but for us, the solo adventure is the best part of Rayman Origins, and the Vita version is easily a must-have in the launch lineup – and likely long into the new handheld’s lifecycle. It’s the perfect type of game for a handheld, easily playable in short doses or long sessions, and it’s a triumph of clever, captivating game design.

The past few years seem to have convinced some critics that "artsy" platforming games ought to be short affairs, but Rayman is much, much better than that. There are a magnitude of stages to explore here, epic boss fights, unlockable character skins, hidden stages galore and hours upon hours of frantic fun. The notion that imaginative visuals and matinee-priced entry fees need be mutually exclusive is one Rayman Origins continues to dispel as hour after hour of gaming joy continue to ramp up in both sheer scope and in grand gratification. Rayman Origins takes on a genre mastery of ground work laid down decades ago and elevates it to astronomical new standards. It's a spectacular living painting that's as much fun to play as it is to look at, and it's a total triumph. Your move, video game industry.

"La plateforme 2D n'est pas morte !". Voilà ce que semble hurler Rayman : Origins à chaque instant, illustrant son message de la plus belle des manières. Outre ses sublissimes décors et ses personnages parfaitement animés, le petit dernier de Michel Ancel se paye le luxe de nous offrir un gameplay aux petits oignons, sachant se renouveler sur toute la durée de l'aventure. Alors certes quelques passages demandent une concentration extrême et de nombreux essais avant d'être réussis, mais ils rappelleront d'excellents souvenirs aux nostalgiques du genre et offriront un challenge intéressant aux plus jeunes. Avec en plus la possibilité de parcourir les niveaux avec trois amis, Rayman : Origins est sans l'ombre d'un doute un immanquable de cette fin d'année.

WiiNintendoWorldReport
The game can be nightmarishly difficult and some of the later levels can become very frustrating very quickly, with diabolical enemy placement or unforgiving bottlenecked structures that must be navigated with surgical precision. The abundance of checkpoints does help, but replaying the same room over and over because of one cheap segment can take its toll. The style may also be adorable to some and annoying to others, as there's no shortage of singing chipmunk voices or distracting Pig Latin narration to accompany text boxes. Still, this is a solid title that must be experienced. If you don't mind a few disembodied handfuls of rage-inducing difficulty or the constant, sanity-warping slapstick, you'll have a blast, especially if you invite some friends to slap around.

I adored my experience playing Rayman Origins and I'm certain that anybody with a love for 2D platform games will feel the same. It stands tall in the field as being one of the best of its kind in this console generation and supplies ample hope that there's not only plenty of life still in that genre, but in Rayman as a franchise.

Rayman: Origins represents the best of platforming that many other developers have tried and failed to successfully accomplish. It's genuinely fun without feeling as though it's blatantly stealing from the plethora of solid indie and mainstream titles before it, a unique experience that kids (and adults) should have a lot of fun with. It's not the lengthiest ride, nor does it hold much for completionists get excited over, but as a family/multiplayer title Rayman: Origins not only meets expectations, but surpasses them with ease.

Xbox 360Console Obsession
Rayman Origins takes the character back to his early roots, and does so in a style and a fashion that makes it one of the finest games in the platforming genre. There’s colour, beauty, happiness, frustration and challenge to be found in one of the gaming highlights of 2011. It’s just a shame that it is a game that will be ignored and pushed aside by so many.

A triumphant comeback for the series, Rayman Origins sees the influence of creator Michel Ancel at work once more, and a strong showing for Ubisoft's hand-drawn UbiART Framework, giving the game a unique and stunning style that's entirely its own thing.

Bewährte Tugenden sind manchmal spaßbringender als innovative Experimente! Ubisoft liefert mit der traditionellen und doch so modernen 2D-Springerei ein Meisterstück des Genres ab: Witzig, ideenreich, stilvoll – einen solch grandiosen Auftritt hätte ich dem alten Rayman nicht mehr zugetraut. Einzig im letzten Spieldrittel schleichen sich Schlampereien ein: Wenn die Steuerung bei einer schweren Stelle hakt, dann ist das frustrierend.

Su Wii tuttavia Rayman trova una concorrenza decisamente più agguerrita rispetto a quella presente su console HD: qui Donkey Kong regna ancora incontrastato, New Super Mario Bros. Wii ha già portato tutta la nostalgia old gen sulla console di casa Nintendo ed il buon Sonic Colors ha invece mostrato che si possono sempre introdurre idee nuove anche in uno dei generi più vecchi. Rayman Origins rimane un titolo eccellente, che può accontentare sia i giocatori hardcore sia i novizi ma che difficilmente riuscirà a soddisfare appieno entrambe le categorie. Peccato per la modalità multiplayer, divertente ma che a causa di livelli veramente troppo ristretti e di una curva di difficoltà eccessivamente bassa rappresenta solo un simpatico extra e non un vero elemento portante della produzione come sarebbe stato lecito aspettarsi.

Rayman Origins macht alles richtig. Einerseits fühlt es sich durch das klassische 2D-Design und die witzige Präsentation an wie die Jump&Run-Klassiker der 90er-Jahre von Mario bis eben Rayman. Andererseits bringen die zahlreichen Neuerungen so viele frische wie coole Ideen, dass es für drei Spiele reichen würde. Ein besonderes Highlight ist der Koop-Modus, gerade weil er so herrlich chaotisch ist. Sie wollen mit ein paar Kumpels ein paar lustige Abende verbringen? Dann führt kein Weg an Rayman Origins vorbei. Auch und vor allem, weil Rayman Origins ohne den Ubisoft Game Launcher auskommt und mit 30 Euro auch alles andere als teuer ist.

It’s that type of nonsensical fun throughout that makes Rayman Origins one hell of a good time. But it’s the visuals and crisp gameplay controls over Rayman’s platforming that make the game really stand out among other platformer titles. Rayman certainly gives Mario a run for his coins. All combined make Rayman Origins one of the best Vita launch titles. And despite the launch line-up being so jam-packed with goodness, Rayman Origins could finally get the appreciation it so deserves. The only problem is that if you’ve played it on consoles already, the new Vita features aren’t enough to warrant a repurchase.

Beau, superbement animé, drôle, jouable à quatre et doté de musiques et d’une ambiance sonore exceptionnelle, Rayman Origins fait revivre la mascotte d’Ubisoft de la plus belle manière qui soit.

Bourré d'idées, quitte à en emprunter pas mal de-ci de-là, Rayman Origins rassure sur l'avenir des plateformer 2D et surtout d'une volonté quasi viscérale de bien faire. Et ce malgré une jouabilité parfois perfectible. Le retour de la tombe laisse parfois quelques séquelles, qui n'empêchent pas ce nouveau corps de se monter éclatant.

If you're a solo player or not bothered by the lack of multiplayer options, buy Rayman: Origins. It's a best-in-class platformer that will delight and challenge you; if you're looking to take your multiplayer Rayman: Origins playing on the road, this probably isn't the version for you.

Rayman: Origins weet ook op de Vita nog verfrissend aan te voelen met zijn kraakheldere graphics en zorgvuldig uitgedachte platformactie. De coöp heeft plaats moeten maken voor de Ghost-modus en dat is enerzijds jammer en anderzijds de beste beslissing die Ubisoft heeft kunnen maken. Onderweg kun je met dit extra speltype snel uit de voeten en dat is toch essentieel voor een handheldtitel.

Once you’ve got over the manly squee-ing at how glowy the fireflies are, there are plenty of secret Electoon cages to be found and time challenges to be met to make sure you’ll be back for more. A satisfying difficulty curve seals the deal and makes Rayman Origins one of the strongest titles in an already muscular line up. Not bad for a character without any arms.

As with the massive factory that comprises the final world, Rayman Origins has a lot of moving parts. In lesser hands, the art design might have overwhelmed everything, leaving the levels to feel like an overly cluttered and repetitive mess. Instead, it's a wonderful platformer with its own unique style that's most definitely worth experiencing, and especially shared.

On sait qu'il faut toujours soigner sa première apparition, mais il est encore plus important de réussir son come-back. Michel Ancel et son équipe n'ont pas pris cette devise à la légère et ont tout simplement fait de Rayman Origins le meilleur jeu de plate-forme de l'année. L'UBIart Framework rend merveilleusement honneur au travail des illustrateurs, la bande son orchestrale est un délice pour les tympans et le game design imbrique habilement les bonnes idées souvent venues de la concurrence, sans pour autant ressembler à une vulgaire resucée. L'absence de jeu en ligne à plusieurs et quelques défauts d'ergonomie ou de lisibilité viennent bien ternir la toile, mais pas au point de faire craquer le vernis d'un tableau vivant à l'exécution flamboyante et au caractère délirant parfaitement assumé.

There's probably a hardcore cadre of Rayman fans who'll be left spitting feathers after that last paragraph; if you're one of these people, you'll worship this game, and will likely appreciate the dozens of unlockable characters - most of whom look exactly the same to my untrained eye. But even for the rest of us, Rayman Origins has an awful lot to give: it's a passionate tribute to the days when platform games ruled the Earth, but beyond that, it's also one of the best examples of the genre we've had in recent memory.

Rayman Origins signe une prestation d'une grande qualité. Ce jeu de plates-formes 2D est d'une rare beauté, et bénéficie d'une prise en main immédiate. Cette édition Vita nous livre une conversion très réussie, auquelle il manque malheureusement le mode multijoueur de la mouture originale.

Rayman Origins is a beautiful looking platformer that is evocative of a bygone era, crammed full with objectives and challenging gameplay. This is by far one of the best platformers available on Xbox 360 and PS3, and rivals some of Nintendo’s best offerings, which is a substantial achievement on Ubisoft’s part.

Внятный сюжет мог бы превратить Rayman Origins в красивую волшебную сказку. А без него это — забавный аттракцион ловкости и проворства, приятное развлечение для хорошей компании.

Men ändå... Låt inte det stoppa dig från att skaffa Rayman Origins om du inte redan spelat det dock. Michel Ancels sällsamma värld är så märkvärdig, så levande och så underbar att jag lyckades sitta och le som ett fån under en hel flygtur nyligen så till den milda grad att jag skrämde slag på medpassageraren som troligen trodde jag var psykopat. Detaljerna som sagt. Och musiken. Och ljudet. Och banvariationen. Klar köprekommendation, helt enkelt.

Parce qu'elle se retrouve privée de son mode coopératif, la version PSVita de Rayman Origins ne s'adresse qu'à ceux qui n'auront pas la possibilité de découvrir le jeu sur un autre support. Dommage, car le soft reste excellent, très inventif et superbement réalisé. Les quelques ajouts proposés sont toutefois trop légers pour compenser l'absence de convivialité inhérente à cette mouture portable.

Ultimately, Rayman Origins is still a fantastic game, with or without multiplayer. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you now have one more reason to give it a shot.

Parce qu'elle se retrouve privée de son mode coopératif et que sa réalisation est logiquement loin d'être aussi flamboyante que sur les autres machines, la version 3DS de Rayman Origins ne s'adresse qu'à ceux qui n'auront pas la possibilité de découvrir le jeu ailleurs. Dommage, car le soft reste excellent, très inventif et artistiquement très abouti.

Rayman Origins ist auch auf dem Nintendo 3DS mit einigen Abstrichen und gemessen an den Möglichkeiten des Handhelds ein guter 2D Plattformer, der es verdient gespielt zu werden. Für Besitzer einer der bereits erhältlichen Rayman Origins Version bietet der Titel bis auf den netten 3D Effekt aber zu wenig, um nochmals zuzuschlagen. Nichtsdestotrotz sollten Nintendo 3DS Besitzer unbedingt einen Blick auf Rayman Origins werfen, denn mit diesem knallig bunten Spaßtrip erwartet euch das bislang beste 3DS 2D Jump and Run, mit viel Witz und einer sehr guten Spielbarkeit! Technisch wäre aber aufgrund einzelner Einbrüchen der Bildrate und einigen verzerrten Soundeffekten mehr drin gewesen!

It could be easy for some to write off Rayman Origins as a case of publisher greed – opting to release something intended as a digital-only release for full price in shops around the world. But playing the game you soon realise this absolutely isn’t the case. It isn’t cheeky, or greedy or even slightly cynical: it’s a very, very good game with a lot to do, an addictive nature that will keep you playing, a fun cooperative mode and some of the most beautiful artwork we’ve ever seen in a game. Rayman Origins is a very welcome addition to the world of gaming and it’s great to see Michel Ancel on form once more.

Avec cette version 3DS, Ubisoft se paie le luxe de ne pas compenser la sortie tardive par de vraies nouveautés, si ce n'est par une 3D stéréoscopique dispensable. Pire, cette version apparaît comme la moins fournie / agréable de toutes (moins accessible, lisible, confortable et riche). Pourtant, elle demeure très honnête pour le support et conserve les excellentes bases du titre original. Des qualités qui en font un des meilleurs jeux de plateforme de la console. À conseiller seulement à ceux qui ne possèdent que la 3DS et ne détiennent pas une des autres versions sorties précédemment.

Rayman Origins is a unique, well designed platformer with loads of personality that simply doesn’t feel right on the 3DS. From the design to the noticeable drop in graphics quality (even when compared to the Vita version), everything points to the idea that this is better played somewhere else. My strongest feeling after playing the game is that I want to go play it on a console, so I can enjoy it the way it was originally intended. The spirit is still here, and it’s not a bad game, but you should play it somewhere else if at all possible.

There's a great game struggling to escape the apparent confines of the 3DS here, but weak visuals and terrible sound make it a purchase only for those that can't play it any other way.
