Nintendo Life – 100
Rayman Origins perfectly embodies what made many of us fall in love with gaming in the first place. It’s a nigh-on flawlessly executed romp through intricately designed levels that boast the most gorgeously detailed and vibrant visuals you’ll see this generation. Tight controls, a perfectly judged difficulty curve, fantastically surreal boss fights and tons of replayability go that extra mile.

It’s downright gorgeous and a total blast to play alone or with friends. A truly realized vision at the top of its genre, Rayman Origins is an extravaganza with plenty of action to keep it fresh from start to finish and beyond.

It all adds up to be the best Rayman game ever made, and that’s coming from someone who adores Rayman 2. [Nov 2011, p.80]
Official Nintendo Magazine UK – 91
Rayman games may usually prompt little more than a shrug of indifference, but don’t dismiss Origins. It’s a top quality platformer from start to finish, a dazzling showcase for Ubisoft Montpellier’s artistic talents, and one of the best Wii games of this (or any other) year.

If videogames were in a museum, Rayman Origins would be probably one of the stars of the platforming room. This game is an incredible piece of art, recommended for every gamer with no exception.

A certain Italian plumber should watch his back – Rayman Origins is as good as New Super Mario Bros. Wii and not far off from approaching the quality of some of his finest 2D adventures.
SpazioGames – 85
It’s a very well crafted platform, bestowed with an incredible design. On the other hand, the pros could find it sometimes too easy, as on Wii there are much more compelling games in the genre, like Donkey Kong.

Rayman Origins is a wonderful 2D platformer whose goofy charm will have you smiling all the way through.
