Rayman Origins Review

It has been a long time since I played a Rayman game that felt this good.
Rayman Origins those not look that much like the last Rayman games but more like the first one but now with a much more colorful look.
Every level is like a art work and the soundtrack just makes the fun even better.

When I first tried this game as a demo I was sold and had to get this game.
Well its plays sooo easy.
The controls are not that special but so simple that anyone that joins can play it form the first minute.
But still as you journey through Rayman Origins you will get more skillzz without getting more controls and that's good as well.

Its fun to see that this game came out on almost every console that is available.
Rayman Origins can be played alone but its soooooo much fun with a 2de or more players.

But there is a few things i still miss in this wonderful party game and that real story.
Oke there is a small opening video and at the there is one at the end as well but there is not that much story.
Is this a problem and thus it make the game bad ..... no.
But i would be nice if there was one.
Also a few more skins would be nice.
Oke I like the teensy, rayman and glowbox skins but other skins of enemy's or other allies would be nice.
But without these things the game is still a masterpiece in my eyes. 

It plays easy, friends can join easy, can be played any time and the funny soundtrack will leave a mark in your heart forever.
For the level design I will say not to much and just show you all some screenshots to show sins every level is a piece of art.

Now there are a few things I want to say about the difficulty of the game.
as you progress it will get harder and harder but doable for a casual player but the extras in the game will certainly be only for the more experienced players.
These are the time trials for normal levels and tooth levels which will unlock the bad ass and super hardcore undead stage that is super hard to beat.
So you will probably have to set your abilities to the limit.
But beating a super hard time trial or getting all lums is pure enjoyment when you get the job done.

For my end conclusion I have to say that this a game must get if you own a PS3 or a Xbox 360
and like to add a party game to the mix of your FPS's, RPG's and Race games.
Or if you like portable more, get the PSVita version which will also let you zoom in so that you can see the artwork of the levels better, but its less for the party gaming.

If i had to rate it I would give it a fat 9.5 like my last review.
the only reason I gave it not a 10 is because it had no real story or else it would be a 10.

Hope you all liked my second review and if not plz share your thoughts here.

A Journey trough Journey (Review)

At first sight Journey would look weird to any one that is not familiar to games from ThatGameCompany but Journey can never be judged by screens or gameplay videos.
Sins it must be played to experiences the game it self.

Journey start in a desert with with no clue who you are and what your goal is except for a big mountain with light coming from its top.
As you wander around through Journey you will have a great soundtrack in the back that adds the right mood on the right moments in game.
From only blowing wind to a wave of music buzzing from you speakers.

The game starts slowly but when you have played it for 3 minutes, you will not be able to put down your controller till the end.
And that is a good thing since it was made for a gameplay through the story from start till the end without stopping.
This journey trough Journey will give you 2 or more hours if you also play for its trophies, but every minute is worth you money.
As you travel through the land of Journey you find other players that also travel these lands.
These people can't talk or chat with you only chirp at you but traveling with them even more fun sins you don't know the real person also playing with you.
There is no load screen for when these people join you so when the appear you can just continue your journey without even paying any attention to them.

The lands of Journey do not only exist of sand there is a underground destroyed city and a mountain of snow, but I will not go to much in details because I don't want to add spoilers here.
I have experienced this game as a peaceful experience and it is not just a game like many others.
Although there can be many discussion about the story like many had with Flower you should not think too much about it and enjoy your own story through Journey.

If i had to give a score to one of my personal favorite games i have played for 2012 I would give it a 9,5
