Quick thoughts on Rayman Legends
I've been playing the Wii U version of the game, which was initially an exclusive for the system during its launch period. One of the notable additions to Rayman Legends is the use of the Wii U GamePad for the Murfy sections, where you use the touchscreen to slice ropes, activate mechanisms and other actions to get Globox to the end of the level. Ideally, you want to play this with co-op, but the AI is competent with minor hiccups. Sometimes the AI will open itself up to certain death or skip past a secret.
The UbiArt Framework engine looks amazing and makes owning an HD television worth it. The developer utilizes a full color palette for its cartoony, hand-drawn visuals. To simply put it, Rayman Legends is a very, very good looking game.
