Rayman Legends review

Rayman’s enjoyed a bit of a hiatus over the last couple of years with previous Rayman games. The character never really shined in 3D and was in danger of being replaced by his spin-off Rabbids until Rayman Origins came along with great platforming action and even better art direction. Rayman Legends delivers more along the same theme with tonnes of new ideas which are definitely worth the price of admission. Once again, the story’s a bit weak but in essence you have to move through all the stages rescuing Teensies, collecting Lums and freeing some Viking sisters that are all...

Rayman Origins review

I’ve never been a fan of the 3D Rayman games. Although the armless hero does appeal to some, for me he’s always been Ubisoft’s attempt at making its own version of Mario or Sonic with only some degree of success.

Rayman Raving Rabbids 3

A hot new video showing what seems like a teaser for Rayman Raving Rabbids 3 has hit the web today. The video shows a Rabbid playing around with a Wii Balance Board, so it’s no unreasonable to guess that another Rayman Raving Rabbid Wii mini game collection from Ubisoft is on its way, this time using Nintendo’s Wii Fit board rather than just the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. Considering the second Rabbids game for Wii was so much like the first it can only be a good thing that a new control method will be in place to spice things...
