    "If you're really interested in a sort of kid-scary, exciting platformer, Rayman Legends sounds like something you might meet wandering down your alley. The Amazon page referral is a good one, because not only does it include screenshots and lots of descriptive language — not to mention videos — but also customer reviews. You'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better commercial site to use for reference. "

    "Crash Bandicoot is a very interesting 3D game of the PS1 series more than 10 years ago. It is old, but the graphics, sound and gameplay of this game is still very attractive. The game consists of 3 parts and part 1 is the hardest part. I tested all three parts on my machine (s5660), and all three ran smoothly. This is a game not to be missed, because this game uses emulators to run so most Android machines are running, not just super mario"

    "I think you need to get your eyes checked Mr. Lawrence Martin, Limbo is one of the best cross-platform platforming games out there. At first I thought it would be a boring game, but like Mario, there is beauty in its simplicity. A little dark though, but I can play it almost endlessly because it is easy to the eyes and to the mind, just like one of the best platformers. "

    "I wanted a game for PS4, I have no way of playing this. This is a horrible solution when I have such specific parameters for what I am looking for. It's like if I asked for a car, and you give me a scooter. Terrible solution, and I wish I didn't even ask. "

    "The game was described to me as a 2D Souls game. That is the first impression, but it’s not a complete picture. It’s a Metroidvania in terms of world building, with plenty of platforming and ability unlocks that give you the tools you need to access new areas. It’s also more platform than Souls when it comes to the smaller mobs throughout the levels. The mob placement makes the platforming better, you learn their differences and cut through them. This is how you spend most of your time. "

    "One of the best games I've ever played, this new imagining of Ratchet brings the series to a new light and a new era. While it's got plenty of winks and nudges to the old series, it keeps things fresh and familiar at the same time. Definitely pick it up if you've got a PS4."

I highly recommend this game for people looking for indie platformers like myself!"

    "Skylanders: Imaginators is a game where toys come to life and in 3D. The best part is Crash Bandicoot is back and in the game. If you like very cartoonish platformer games this is perfect for you. I don't think that I could get very excited about this game even with Crash in it. I'm sure I'm not the target audience for the game though. Personally I would say it doesn't fit the topic. "

    "Personally, the Lego games are getting a bit stale for my taste, Traveler's tales seems to make innovations then take steps backward. Looking at the open world in game seems almost identical to that of LEGO Heroes which doesn't entice me to pick the game up - been there done that! If you love the same od LEGO formula then you'll pick it up and enjoy it. I guess if you are looking for something that's going to innovate on the series in a bigger way then you aren't going to be completely satisfied - I certainly wasn't."

I love Legos and the mix of a game together was too good to pass up. As usual the graphics were perfect and Lego Worlds is a quality game with many different challenges to keep you coming back for more. "
