POWER REVIEW: Rayman Legends - PS4

BAM-A-LAM! A Straight up sequel to Ubisoft's reboot of the Rayman franchise which was established with Rayman Origins. Featuring a graphical overhaul and and pointlessly convoluted plot (I wouldn't know there was one had I not accidentally seen it for researching this to review) which you will completely ignore due to the solid, pretty platform shenanigans and multiplayer mayhem. Choose your "hero" (a purely aesthetic choice) and go save the world! More beautiful up close than at a distance. + All the characters and backdrops have a hand-painted quality. It genuinely looks like someone enjoyed designing the characters and world. + The world moves in a unique fashion creating puzzles and peri

POWER REVIEW: OwlBoy - PC

Broken Wings You are cast as Otus, the titular Owl Boy and amongst a mere handful of Owl people who still inhabit the land. The world is formed of floating islands and menaced by flying pirates. You start the game in training and are quickly shown how to fly around the level at will. As such there’s a huge vertical scale to the level and few places where you can actually fall to your death.
