So, you’ve got some friends around to show off your swanky new PS4 or Xbox One. You’ve got your spare controllers all ready to go, but you’re struggling to find a game to justify your purchase. Sure, FIFA’s shinier, but it’s still FIFA. They’re unconvinced. Well, we say give up your attempted justification now. Rayman Legends may have appeared on last-gen consoles first, but it’s still the best platformer on Xbox One and PS4, and a co-op experience right up there with the best on any platform.
Rayman Legends brings a special kind of competitive co-op to the table, which sounds contradictory, but is actually incredibly fun. You can punch each other off ledges, race to collect Lums, and just generally have great fun screwing each other over--however, deep down you all know that you stand a far better chance of getting through together. But hey, friendly competition is fun, right?
