Somehow I missed the posting of the Rayman Origins demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace this past week. If you glossed over it as well, I suggest you check out what you’ve been missing because this is one seriously cool side-scroller.
I was fortuanate enough to have had the chance to play RO at the New York Comic Con back in October, and I can tell you that it’s definitely a return to form for the lil’ guy with no arms.
Everything about the game is a nod to the Rayman’s of old but with a lot… more. One of the newest things added to the series with this installment is the very ‘New Super Mario Bros. Wii’-esque four player simultaneous multiplay.
And what’s one of the most fun things about that? Messing with the other three guys/gals you’re playing with of course!
It’s wacky, it’s pretty, it’s hand drawn and gorgeously animated… what’s not to like? Add the Rayman Origins Demo to your queue right here.
