[Hands-on] Rayman Legends is truly going to be legen-...
Okay, so I'm not really sure what to write here...if you liked Rayman Origins, you're obviously gonna love Rayman Legends. It features the same gameplay and art style as the original while adding a few new features into the mix. I didn't really get to see anything new, so I don't have too much to say about it.
One thing I can comment on and that I was pleasantly surprised by was how involved the player controlling Murfy (or Murphy, if you prefer) is in the Co-op mode. You really have no downtime when you're grabbing that Wii U Pad. You'll have to constantly be on the move, raising platforms, cutting ropes, collecting Lums, tickling enemies, you name it. In one stage I got to play, Murfy had to rotate a huge labyrinth while the other characters jumped their way through it. It's a great idea and really fun, but only if your friend isn't a total dick that enjoys making you jump head-first into a set of spikes.
Once again, we only got to check out the Co-op mode so I'm still a bit unclear on how exactly the single player will work. But even so, this game is ramping up to be the first absolute must-have game for the Wii U, at least if you have some love for gorgeous 2D platformers. And you really should.
I am liking me some Rayman!
i thought pikmin 3 was going to be a launch title, i guess i could be wrong
Depends which game comes first
"First absolute must-have game for the Wii U" Pikmin 3 would like to have a word with you.
Just don't let any malicious people get their hands on the pad when playing Legends. It'd be..."nasty", to say the least.
My main reason to get a Wii U (I'll just make sure not to let any of my friends play as Murphy.)
Long live 2D Platformers!
