Best Platforming Games?

#1Coolio86Posted 7/30/2011 4:35:44 PM
I am looking for good current gen platforming games. I can get the game on any system except 3DS so all recommendations are welcome.

What I'm looking for:
Something that is focused around platforming. Something like Sly Cooper. Or something like old school Spyro The Dragon. Prince of Persia (2008) is the most recently made platformer that I really enjoyed. All of these games execute platforming the way I like it, even though Spyro really isnt as much a platformer, i liked the way the combination of platforming and action was used in the game. Maybe even something like Super Mario Galaxy. I also love what has been showed so far of Rayman Origins, it looks GREAT, love the unique art style and the way the gameplay looks. I also like the way old school Crash Bandicoot did platforming. It'd be great if they a new one that was just like the old ones.

What I DONT want:
Something like Enslaved. The platforming is fricken scripted. I HATE that. I hate the way Trine is for platforming.

You liked PoP '08 but not Enslaved? That's....odd.

I just loked at SMB, if there's a demo I'll try it and if I like it I'll get it.

Oh and just for everyone to know my Favorite platformer is Prinny and Prinny 2 on PSP. They are THE BEST. They have everything in them, a funny story, good voice acting, quality gameplay that's fun, and a great challenge.

If you liked PoP '08 i recommend you get The Forgotten Sands as it is a very good prince of persia game. As for platformers on 360 there isn't many 3d ones but you could always give the lego games a whirl as they have some good sections or the crystal dynamics tomb raider trilogy. The best platformers this gen are on arcade though with likes of limbo, splosion man, supermeat boy, braid and banjo kazooie

I second The Forgotten Sands. It's a great Prince of Persia game and much better than the 2008 game.
