As I'm sure most of your know (and if not poke here to see what you should know), I gave this game my honorable mention for the best games of 2013. My rational wasn't that this game was really damned close to perfection, but more because I didn't actually finish it. A bit premature mind you, but as a whole, I still justify making it my honorable mention. It's a solid game that doesn't do anything to greatly expand the Rayman series, but it instead polishes the series to being a master class 2D platformer. In other words, it's really good, but nothing you haven't seen before.
That's by no means a bad statement mind you. I really enjoyed the original Rayman Origins quite a bit. I thought that it was a refreshing 2D platformer with great visuals, controls, and a lot of collectibles to keep people playing for hours after the game is completed. Legends does the same thing, but on a much bigger scale. The main goal of the game is to complete five different worlds modeled after different settings and collected Teensies, who are creatures captured by the evil Dark Magicians. You can easily beat the game by collecting less than half of the Teensies, but to unlock even harder worlds, you'll need to rescue over 300 of the 400 total Teensies.
