Rayman Raving Rabbids Reviews
One of the funniest games we've ever encountered. The bunnies are fabulous. Loads of compelling mini-games, but there are some dudgs. Slick menus, but there are some brief load times.
The lack of progressive-scan support is puzzling, which is why our graphics score took a hit. Still, the game features beautiful art and superb bunny character design.
Hilarious bunny sound effects and surreal remakes of songs like Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Everything runs in Dolby Pro Logic II.
It's not a platformer, but it's really fun all the same. The majority fo these minis are great -- even in single-player. They really utilize Nintendo's new controllers.And they'll make you laugh, too.
8.0 Lasting Appeal
70 mini-games will keep you comiing back for more and support for four players is impressive. Unfortunately, many of the minis aren't compatible with simultaneous play.
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a gamble for Ubisoft because it is so dramatically different from its predecessors. It's not a platformer, but don't let that deter you because it is still easily one of the better games available for Nintendo's new generation system this year. Ubisoft understands that Wii is about new ways to play and it has with Rabbids created a title that utilizes the Wii remote 70 times over. The majority of minis in the title are fun whether you're playing by yourself or with friends, although there are the occasional duds. The biggest drawback is that many of the minis are not designed for simultaneous play; instead you go in sequence. But even with that being true the experience is still engaging and addictive and the title's sense of humor is in a league of its own. It is almost unfair to label this effort a Rayman game because the real stars of the project are the bunnies, whose blank faces and inevitable agonized screams will make you laugh over and over again.
