Ubisoft has gotten lower and lower for me, i got rayman origins for a fast paced blast from the past, and sure i got a blast from the past, but for some wrong reasons. I didnt start the game expecting to get mad, I started the game hoping to have fun, and i did, but things changed later in the game
To begin with it was smooth, fast paced, well handled... i was enjoying it, but those little things that ruin the experience started popping up.
The hit detection likes to go back and forth, one moment im up some guys ♥♥♥ and nothing, the next im pinned up the wall taking 6 hits from an enemy and some spikes, and in a moment like that what is the point of collecting extra hearts, to be hit twice in a row without recovery makes them pointless, that has got to be one of my biggest complaints, a lot of good games have a temporary invincibility after being hit, but this game doesn’t, meaning you can get bounced around a good 5 times and all you can do is watch, that’s not fun. after restarting the same level over and over (which ive noticed surprisingly some people are okay with) the enemy’s and obstacles change their patters, in a game like this it should be the same pattern every time (i suppose this is something most people don’t see, and if thats true then you lucky ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s I see this all the time and it pisses me off beyond belief).Last is the controls, the game apparently likes to mess with them (mine at least) countless times have my controls been delayed, denied or made to do the opposite, i want to jump? nope game wants me to fall, i want to quickly dash to the left? nope game wants me to slowly walk to the right. hold space jumps high and far and tap space jumps low and short? That is often the case untill the game gets bored with you failing a chase level then decides to laugh at you.
Out of the 3 things(look, story, gameplay) only “look” is good, story isn’t important and gameplay, well you’ve just read what I think. Seriously, the game looks amazing, if this game can inspire anything, its making more games to look like this, congratulations rayman origins that doesn’t explain the origins, the look of you saved you from getting a thumbs down from me
