Post Rayman Origins - The Worth It Thread

OK, the game IS worth it! I liked the demo very much. But...!

I want to be sure that it is worth 30€ I will give it for it. How long it is (in hours)? Are there any achievements? How is the replayability? Please, PS3 and Wii owners, help me out here. Thanx!

Replayability should be there. You've seen the smiley face thingies you get at the end of each stage. I'm sure collecting all of them will require you to play the levels a couple of times.

If i were you, i wouldn't preorder it though. Ubisoft has a reputation for lying about DRM and totally screwing their fans. I wouldn't be surprised if there's another "Ubisoft lied again!" scandal a few days after the game is released. So just wait 1 or 2 weeks after the release. There should be some PC reviews of the game by then.

Edit: Here's a video review from Gametrailers.com. Seems like there's plenty of replayability as you pretty much have to go through all the levels a second time?

Thank you for the heads up.

Rayman 2 (or Rayman 3 if buying from Amazon) are cool incentive to get Origins earlier, but Amazon version states that it has TAGES DRM, so... I guess I will wait some more. I've played old Raymans back in the day

The users in this forum are reporting that the Steam version of Rayman 2 is buggy. If you want to get that game i'd recommend you to buy it at Good old games. They specialize in making old games bug free and making them run smooth on current operating systems like Windows 7.

I haven't noticed anything bad in Rayman 2. It runs smooth, and doesn't crash.

I read somewhere it's something like this:
- Retail Copies: No DRM at all.
- Steam Copies: No 3rd party DRM.
- Digital (non-Steam) copies: Tages DRM.
Now we can only hope it's not a Ubi-lie!

I have only played the demo, but knowing there are about 60 levels it looks like it's definitely worth the 30€... I'll probably wait for the Summer Sale but the demo has really sold me... It was ages I didn't play such a flawless thing from a big developer on the PC...

Just pre-ordered it. So excited, think it's going to be a blast. Keeping busy with Vessel in the meantime. It's more puzzler than platformer, but it's excellent.

So for now( except steam it self) the steam version is free of Ubi DRM? Sounds excellent if that is the case

Did anyone else notice the beta tab in the properties menu for the demo?

There was also a small update released. All the more mystifying.

Rayman origins.......

I couldn't get through the demo felt like I was having an acid flashback, I didn't realise it was a childrens game. (silly me)

On the plus side if you have toddlers it's great that there is something on pc that you can buy for them and it's easy to run as well.
