Summary: Parents need to know that while Rabbids Go Home is a creative and ultimately very fun action game, it contains a great deal of bawdy bathroom humor. This is bawdiness on a level that would not even merit a PG rating were this a film, but the frequency of it certainly merits mention. It's probably no coincidence that the rabbids ride around in speeding shopping carts, a trademark of the all-too-human pranksters from the Jackass TV show and movies.
Excerpt: You know you’re in for a crazy ride in a game when even the start up screen gives you the giggles. Rabbids Go Home is the fourth game in the Rayman spin-off series featuring the slightly demented Rabbids. Gone this time are the wacky, senseless mini games,replaced by a wacky, senseless comedy adventure straight from the mind of Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel. So does this crazy story soar to the moon and beyond, or have the Rabbids simply lost their touch?
Conclusion: Rabbids Go Home is a strong recovery for the Rabbids franchise, shying away from the mini game conglomerations we've been accustomed to and bringing an entirely new adventure to the table featuring these misunderstood creatures. Relying on solid gameplay and a strong presentation, Ubisoft has struck gold this time around and should catch the eye of the majority of Wii owners. If you like quirky slapstick humor, this is the game for you.
Excerpt: Ubisoft's Rabbids series has treaded a similar critical path as the LEGO games. Both franchises were adored when they debuted, cited as original and inspired entries that mixed addictive gameplay with silly humor. Then, with each passing sequel, gamers began to grow tired of these franchises' familiar formulas as their original charms began to wear increasingly thin.

Excerpt: Anyone who follows my reviews will know that I am a very sceptical man. In fact, so sceptical, that when I hear about developers taking their already established franchises in another direction, I need more than a press release and screenshots to be swayed.
Excerpt: While the original Rayman: Raving Rabbids , a Wii launch title, is arguably is to blame for much of the shovelware that eventually found its way onto the system, Ubisoft's minigame compilation was entertaining in its own right. It was the only software at launch, beyond Wii Sports, that really put a spotlight on the motion controls, and did so in a zany, wacky way.
Excerpt: The developers of Rabbids Go Home have no idea how to make a third-party Wii game. First, you debug code from an old, rejected GameCube project. Then you add inane waggle controls—because, you know, immersion. Create cover art in Photoshop Elements, pluralize the title with a Z if the game is for girlz, and you’re done. But Rabbids Go Home doesn’t go by the book.
Summary: The party is over and the Rabbids are ready to go home ... to the moon! Rabbids Go Home features a new wacky storyline, diverse gameplay and intuitive controls, and a vast array of environments that leads to hilarious capers as the Rabbids wreak havoc on the Humans in pursuit of their quest.
