Was Rayman Origins the best 2D platformer since Super Mario World?

Will Nintendo have to beat Rayman Legends with Super Mario 3D world to take its throne back? No bias please.

Honestly, Rayman Origins is probably the best platformer I've ever played. The only platformer that can beat that is Rayman Legends.

Nope, Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Also, SM3DW isn't 2D.

Isn't it more like a 2D/3D hybrid?

I have Rayman Origins for the 3DS and PS3. It is beautiful. It feels more entertaining than NSMB.
Damn, as much as I love Mario it can get boring sometimes. Rayman on the other hand I find challenging. I miss the old one for PC and playstation, it was so beautiful and the soundtrack was perfect

That would be what some consider 2.5D, of which SM3DW is not.

I haven't played the full game for Origins, but Donkey Kong Country Returns was my favorite 2D platformer ever.

anyway, "best since SMW" implies that SMW hasn't been surpassed which i disagree with.

for one, i find its predecessor SMB3 to play much better (better powerups, shorter but funner levels).
also, SMW2:Yoshi's Island was FAR superior.

i also find Sonic 3+Knuckles to be better but on a Nintendo board i don't expect many people to agree.

Mega Man X was totally better than SMW as well.

but yeah i haven't played Rayman Origins so i dunno.
