Let's just a take a moment to appreciate the fact that Ubisoft actually made a creatively smart decision. While Rayman has existed since the early PlayStation 1 days, the franchise didn't really gain a significant following until it was rebooted in Raving Rabbids. Yet, even there, Rayman was eventually kicked out from the series so the games would focus entirely on those annoying little white alien rabbit hybrids.
That all changed when Rayman got an official reboot that he himself starred in with Rayman Origins, a platforming masterpiece. However, if you want the best experience possible, you need to purchase Rayman Legends. Not only does it continue the hot streak of beautiful animation, fun level design, insanely funny multiplayer, and tricky boss battles, but it also has the majority of levels featured in Origins as a bonus! You know you're in for a wild ride when there's an entire level dedicated to rock and roll music that you get to jam out to.
