A 2D platformer starring limbless hero Rayman is a tour de force in visual expression and abundance of gameplay.
Rayman Origins Review for Mac OS X
I'm really not a fan of platformers. There are exceptions to this of course, games where platforming is only a side dish to the main gameplay being served up (although strangely I thoroughly enjoyed Super Meat Boy), but in general I'm too old, there are too many other games that I can get enjoyment out of without having to endure endless frustrations and repeating the same bloody actions over and over again. It was my hope that Rayman Origins would be one of those rare platforming games that I'd enjoy. Ultimately, I did not.
