From Josh Vanderwall's review of the game

The Last of Us breathes new life into a vastly overused genre, setting the bar for post-apocalyptic stories to come. It doesn't do anything new mechanically, but you'll be entirely too invested in the progress of the remarkably down-to-earth characters to care.

From AJ Glasser's preview of the game

Chevallier and Morel took us to a soccer game called Kung Foot - and that's where I found out what all the yelling was about. In the course of three rounds, the four of us screamed like lunatics as we each scrambled to get our character close enough to a soccer ball to hit it with an attack, causing the ball to charge up with flame effects and move even faster. Much like real life air hockey, the pace in Kung Foot escalates from methodical to frantic in no time at all and by the second round, Chevallier actually fell to his knees after scoring a goal much like a soccer player would in real life.

The fact that his enthusiasm after three days - and mine, after not even 30 minutes - comes through so strongly is proof that Rayman really IS fun.
