In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

E3 First Impressions: Rayman: Origins

While Anthony went hands on with Rayman: Origins and will provide a full preview later on, I wanted to give Ubisoft's 2D platformer some special attention and allow it to lead off Game Revolution's E3 2011 previews and impressions. Why? Rayman: Origins is a special game and will probably take hold of anyone willing to watch more than 10 seconds of gameplay.

Remember last year, how everyone at E3 said that Kirby's Epic Yarn had the best artistic graphics of the entire show? Rayman: Origins would be a repeat of that oddly contested event if it weren't for some of the other stunners out there.

Rayman's hand-drawn and hand-animated style is so unbelievably charming that even if you suck at the game itself, like I do, you'll still find plenty to enjoy when watching a more accomplished player. The gameplay can switch from quick dashes to clever platforming puzzles and even beyond to underwater sections or bug-flying-shooting missions. You'll want to look out for Rayman: Origins and the sheer beauty or color and animation within when it lands on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii later this year.

Oh, and Rayman's original creator, Michel Ancel, is directly involved in the game. His name alone is reason to pay attention.
