Wot I Think: Rayman – Legumes

By Adam Smith on September 12th, 2013.

Rayman: Legends Legumes is the sequel to the unexpectedly brilliant Rayman: Origins Oranges. The latter, starring a character that I had little interest in and whose style of running and jumping didn’t seem particularly suited to the PC, was one of my favourite games of last year. With that in mind, I approached Legumes without any prejudice but instead with a deep-seated cynicism. I am nothing if not my doubts. But is this a rushed and inconsequential sequel or another platforming classic? Here’s wot I think.

Jazz Hands-Free: Rayman Legends

By Adam Smith on August 15th, 2013.

I hadn’t entirely forgotten that Rayman Legends is coming out on PC, but I had put it to the back of my mind as something to be enjoyed in the distant future. It’s a mark of how quickly this year has slipped through my fingers that the once distant future is now the end of this very month. While I’m slightly horrified that several months seem to have passed without notice, I’m pleased that a return to Michel Ancel’s world of glorious jazzy nonsense is just around the temporal corner. The video below shows a musical level, which looks as precise and demanding as the chest-chases in last year’s Rayman: Oranges. Prepare to hum.

It’s Like We’re Wanted: Rayman Legends Coming To PC

By John Walker on July 25th, 2013.

Perhaps rather predictably, Ubisoft have just announced that the follow-up to the excellent Rayman Oranges, Rayman Legends, will be coming to PC. And even better news – on the same day as all the other formats, 30th August. To celebrate there are some screenshots, which are like a trailer, but very, very slow-moving.

Arm Yourself: Ubisoft Confirms Rayman Legends

By Nathan Grayson on April 28th, 2012.

Believe me: it looks much, much better in motion.
In retrospect, it’d be kind of silly to name a game “Origins” and then bury the franchise immediately afterward, wouldn’t it? And so, somewhat unsurprisingly, Ubisoft’s given an official magically levitating thumbs-up to all the Rayman scuttlebutt that’s been floating around for the past couple days. Specifically, the game’s called Rayman Legends, and – true to the leaked screenshots and video (after the break, courtesy of Gamekult) – it takes place in a pleasantly painterly fantasy land. That said, Ubisoft cautions that those materials were intended for internal use only and “in NO way” represent the final game. So, for all we know, it could take place in space or (fingers crossed) a 1940s black-and-white detective film before it’s all said and done.
