Review: Rayman Raving Rabbids

By  •  Wii

rayman-raving-rabbids-4.jpg

Rayman Raving Rabbids, developed by Ubisoft, is a title that came out of left field. It was a game that I knew little about when it was launched with the Wii in November 2006. Every trailer that I saw for the game only confused me more about what the title was actually about, or how it was even played.

A couple friends bought the game at launch and the word of mouth showed me just how great the game could be. I bought the game when Circuit City was running their $20 off sale on RRR. I began playing through the game, and it is one of the most fun and unique games I’ve ever played.

First off, this is not your traditional Rayman platformer. It is essentially a series of minigames that follow a loose storyline. Rayman is captured, along with some friends, and it is his job to prove himself in several ‘arena’ type games to get his friends back. The minigames range from sports, workout games, precision, and dance. There are dozens of minigames and they all utilize the Wiimote and nunchuk in unique ways. The sports games are themed from various sports like Soccer/Football as well as others. The workout games are ones that will probably make you sweat. They require more fast physical activity like running with the controller or spinning it around your head like a lasso. The precision and dance games are some of the more enjoyable minigames.

The precision games are ones where you throw plungers at the Rabbids. It sounds a little ridiculous, but IT IS TONS OF FUN! I walks you around in a first-person view in different motifs like Wild West or Space levels. It’s a zany take on the first-person genre. The dance games are my personal favorite. I’m no dancer by any means, but it doesn’t take that much to be good at dancing.
