Digital Foundry, for those who aren\’t aware, like to test multiplatform games to within an inch of their lives to find out which version performs the best. Rayman Legends has just seen release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One, so they\’ve put the game to the test, again, to find out how it stacks up.
Despite the enormous leap in power the new consoles represent, in our opinion it\’s the Wii U version of Rayman Legends that remains the definitive edition of the game, with the title taking advantage of the GamePad\’s unique features in ways that genuinely add variety and more fun to the gameplay. Let\’s not forget that while this game may have been ported to a vast range of different hardware platforms, it started out life as a Wii U exclusive, built around the unique capabilities of the system. Indeed, it\’s the Nintendo console that offers the experience that the developers originally intended for the game, before the last-minute switch to a multi-platform release.
Rayman Legends was originally announced as a Wii U exclusive, until Ubisoft famously delayed the game more than six months so they could release simultaneous (and lesser) ports on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 etc.
