We’re only three spots into our Top 10 best Wii U games and already it’s beginning to look like a shameless plug for Ubisoft with the addition of Rayman Legends to the list. While not a Wii U exclusive, this fun, challenging, and achingly pretty game proves that Nintendo isn’t the only developer in town who can create a truly excellent 2D platformer. First of all just look at those incredible hand-drawn visuals. They honestly look like they’ve jumped straight from the screen of your favorite Saturday morning cartoon. Which is great and all, but it wouldn’t count for much without good gameplay to back it up. The great news is that Rayman Legends shines in this regard too with highly entertaining co-op, tough obstacles to overcome, countless secrets to discover and some utterly masterful level designs. To top it off Rayman Legends makes excellent use of the GamePad. This is one game that every Wii U owner should have in their collection.
