You can take or leave most hype, because it is, just that, hype. We've heard it all before, or so I thought, until I talked to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot this week. He dialled his enthusiasm up. Way up.
"Rayman Legends should be one of the best games we’ve ever done," he told me, praising the upcoming Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and Vita game as he had before.
Then he added: "It should be in the top five of the best games ever by the company."
Time to jot down your list of Best Ubisoft Games Ever, folks. I'd have Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, ZombiU, Driver San Francisco, From Dust... OK, I have weird taste. What else? A Splinter Cell? A Ghost Recon? Prince of Persia: Sands of Time...
One of the best five ever? He's not even saying that about Watch Dogs. Hype!
