  • Rayman Legends

    Ubisoft Montpellier’s gleeful latest instalment in Michel Ancel’s Rayman series may have had a long and difficult journey to the shop shelves, but even after playing it for just a few minutes you realise it was well worth the wait.

You guessed it: Duncan! Me! Then again, the games that have scared me in the past haven’t exactly been what you would call…
