Rayman is having a picnic with a bunch of frogs and suddenly you all get kidnapped by a bunch of screaming bunnies. You're thrown into this coliseum and forced to do a bunch of repetitive mini games to earn your freedom. These games range from slamming bathroom doors to assembling toys in the dark, like 1 or 2 of them are actually fun and entertaining but most are just kinda dumb and overly simple. Each level is 3 games (some of them, none of the fun ones tho, have a level 2 wich is supposedly harder), a dance off, and a rail shooter boss battle. These games are all overly simple and I finished most of them on my first try, the other ones I only failed because the rules werent clear enough. Oh, and you get a victory video every time you beat one, but it's the same one every time. The dance stages are the same three songs over and over again, but one of them is that song from the beginning of Pulp Fiction, wich was actually good and a thousand times more entertaining then this game. The rail shooter gets really boring really fast, especially when you're going thru the same stage for the third time, and almost everything dies in one hit. You also get a huge life bar with health laying all over the place, so I don't see how anyone could actually lose this thing. The only cool thing about these levels is that there's Sam Fisher bunnies, I liked them. You can unlock a bunch of different costumes where you get to dress like people you went to high school with, like gangstas, goths and ravers. When you put on the gangsta costume Rayman actually turns into a black person (or whatever he is). The game tries to be funny, it's not, and the only thing even close to a voice over is the bunnies screaming "BWAAAAA!" really loudly, get used to it, it's the only thing you'll hear thruout the whole game. If youre this desperate for a bunch of mini games that show you the different ways a wii remote can be used puck up Wario Ware. Its actually fun. Oh yeah, and the ending sucks too.
Raving Rabbids was not nearly as outstanding as other reviews had led me to believe. This game suffers from poor production values and doesn't really feel "put together" like a lot of great first-party Nintendo games do. Considering that this isn't true of many of the games I've played from Ubisoft (Splinter Cell, etc.), I was disappointed.
I enjoy both long, "questing" games and casual minigames, and I turned to this one hoping it would be a great entry in the latter category, but it was pretty disappointing. Some of the minigames are fun, but most are pretty uninspired. The game lacks the frantic pace that makes Warioware titles fun and exciting, and is dull and lifeless compared to the Mario Party games. Although the minigames aren't connected by any kind of a story arc or plotline, which would normally be fine, they make a halfhearted attempt to be, which is annoying. Don't purchase it, but maybe rent it on a rainy weekend. Just make sure you've got something else to play if you get tired of it after 10 minutes.
I was less impressed with this game than other people. Fun? No. It would make a fun system-demo game to show off the Wii controller, but there's nothing to the gameplay. The graphics are sub-Gamecube standards. And multiplayer gets boring in under an hour.
There are already other multiplayer mini-game titles out for the Wii, and there will be many more. Almost all of them are better than this game.
