Rayman is an interesting new take on the series. Ubisoft broke away from the more traditional gameplay and went with this series of new, fun, and hilarious mini-games! While you might find that the single player portion of the game is a bit boring. The Multiplayer is really fun! Me and my friends have had plenty of fun already with this game. Untill a mario party comes out i think this is my party game of choice, The art direction in this game clearly makes up for any graphical shortcommings the game may have. As for controls, the wii-mote is responive and makes for a smooth play. Though, rayman will put you to the test by making you do some challenges and games that will make you work up a sweat, its always fun. The humor and multiplayer for this game is where it shines as a smash. this is a must have if you like multiplayer games.

Wisely, this game is composed of short "twitch" mini-games. Although some mini-games are better than others, they are all hilarious and fit in with the theme of the game. You play Rayman, captured by these bunnies and subjected to gladiator-style events. Rayman, ever the non-elbowed and non-knee'd hero, must win enough plungers to climb his way out to freedom. As cute as Rayman is, the show (game) is stolen by the gremlin-like Rabbids. They are fun-loving and vulgar, often subjecting themselves to Jackass-style stunts during Rayman's events. Gross jokes aplenty, it's up to you if you want your kids to watch (my daughters loved it). This game is a great peek at the interactive potential of the Wii's controllers. You'll swing cows with a lasso move, pump up both hands like you're running, and aim it like a gun. The graphics are simple and cartoony, but they were meant to be. This is a game where Nintendo's concept of games before graphics really shines through. Some advice: Always use the wrist strap!

This is was a shockingly fun game. Being a relatively new gamer, I wasn't sure what to expect, but, I really enjoyed this game. The rabbids are funny and the story is interesting. Best of all the mini games are fun, interesting, and worth playing. It really has me excited for version 2.
