Review: Rayman Fiesta Run photo
Review: Rayman Fiesta Run
by Chris Carter

Rayman Jungle Run was a perfect example of how to adapt a console game to a touch interface. It gorgeously preserved the sharp visuals from its console counterpart, and best of all -- it used a control scheme that actually worked, without pissing off fans of the original.

Instead of relying on a messy virtual d-pad and a host of buttons, Jungle Run kept things simple, and allowed you to tap the screen to jump, among a few other basic functions. While Rayman Fiesta Run tries to meddle with this winning formula a bit too often, it's still very much worth your time.

Rayman Origins for Vita is this week's PS Plus bonus photo
Rayman Origins for Vita is this week's PS Plus bonus
by Jordan Devore

As a person whose heart isn't made of pure ice, I'm quite fond of Rayman Origins. It would have been a real treat for the newly-released Rayman Legends to be offered in the PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection, but it's the former title North American subscribers are getting -- for PS Vita, that is. Yeah. I suppose this is a version that less of us currently own, and that's something. I'm now remembering how much I enjoyed the side-scrolling shooter levels. So good.

Moving onto discounts, there's some better news. Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut is $11.69 as a Cross-Buy Vita and PS3 title for Plus members, in addition to Limbo (also Cross-Buy) which is marked down to $11.99. Worms Revolution should also get a shout out -- it's down to $7.50 and resident Worms correspondent Fraser Brown says the game is excellent.

As a reminder, this is also the week when European PS Plus members get a bunch of rad games, including: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Far Cry 3, and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.
