I get the feeling that Rayman Legends’ Murfy will be one of those love/hate things, just like Rayman Origins’ Mosquito levels. Some people couldn’t care less about him while others are more open to the possibilities he brings to the table.
For those of you who would prefer playing through Legends without Murfy, you’ll be pleased to hear that the entire campaign can be experienced without his presence. Furthermore, it looks like you won’t need to use the GamePad at all if this is something you’d prefer.
Thanks to thomas for the tip.
