Best Platformer of 2013
A lot of platformers were released this year. Some of them boasted tight controls, others dazzled with impressive visual styles. Some harkened back to the great platformers of decades past and a few pushed the genre towards the future. Rayman Legends is our platformer of the year because it managed to do all of these things and more. The game stays fresh with levels that constantly introduce new and interesting mechanics, there's a huge amount of content to play through. Its fun, light-hearted character bleeds out at every opportunity. Add the fact that just about any given screenshot is worthy of being framed and hung and you've got a fantastic platformer that shouldn't be missed and jumped up to the #1 spot in our Platformer Game of the Year 2013 list.
