in the JukeXboxfind the original soundtracks of Xbox games that the team tagged XboxSquad. This week Sourille decided to tell you about Rayman Legends.
Rayman Legends is a platform game released in 2013. First of all, you should know that this work is one of those whose heroes I hate. Rayman has no charisma and gets on my nerves … in short, I can’t stand it! So apart from this hero, there is absolutely nothing to throw in this title. The sets are lavish and colorful, the characters are all croquignolets (big to all ptizeters!) And the music is just masterful. She is the backbone of Rayman Legends. It’s ubiquitous and an essential part of the decor of any level. It’s not just there to fill out, but fits perfectly with each of the worlds we travel to.
If it occupies an important place throughout the adventure, it becomes capital in the musical levels where, in addition to the platform dimension, a rhythm-play dimension is added. More than a skin, it redefines the way you play, as the pace determines when actions need to be taken. Aside from the originality of the gameplay, the music itself is catchy and funny. Your only mistake is that they are too short. These are for some covers of songs that appeal to many of us, but with a little variation. Here are some selected pieces that will delight both your pupils and ears.
Mariachi madness so above it all that I still can’t get over it. You see They see eye of the Tiger what alone stands for badassitude? Well. Make a 180 degree turn and this is what it looks like. This variant couldn’t be further from the original. It’s a totally unlikely kawaii version on guitar and kazoo in Day of the Dead mode. I only live for this piece!
in the Castle Rockit is an interpretation of Black Betty near Ram Jam in the spotlight. This time we find rock tones and it’s not the style but the execution that makes the difference. And believe me, when you hear a Livingstones heart singing the yogurt song in its sweet, melodious voices, you get excited.
Grandma World Tour is the final musical level and ends in style. If you played there like me, you probably said to yourself: “Oh, there … but what? But no … it’s madness! “. It must be said that the game has a chain of dirt: bottom-up effect, level upside down (from floor to ceiling), large pile of pixels, blurred image and screen, divided into 64 parts. But here the music really makes sense. To triumph, you must be able to detach yourself from what you see. Sometimes there is no visual indication at all and all you have to do is let yourself be carried away by the music and do your actions to the rhythm.
You will understand the soundtrack of Rayman Legends is one that does not go unnoticed and that we do not forget. It’s a bit like my video game Madeleine, one of the ones we think back to with nostalgia and whose taste we don’t really find anywhere else.
