Rayman: Origins on 360

Rayman: Origins is a Platforming game available on the 360. It can be played in Cooperative modes.

Rayman: Origins is a Platforming game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.

Rayman: Origins can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.


Rayman: Origins

Rayman: Origins will keep classic game play of the original, but freshen it up with the inclusion of multiplayer and stunning 2D art.

The original Rayman released in 1995, it was a platformer that stuck to classic 2D paradigms despite the (then) recent trend in 3D. 16 years on and 2D is almost extinct with even the likes of Street Fighter and Sonic using polygonal models rather than sprites. Rayman: Origins promises to buck the 3D trend one more time and acts like the proliferation of the third dimension never happened.
