Raving Rabbids Travel in Time

Excerpt: The Raving Rabbids are back in another humorous party game. Raving Rabbids Travel in Time is a Wii exclusive that supports MotionPlus. I said this is a humorous game, but that all depends on your definition of humor. Elitists may look at this game from down their long noses and dismiss it for things like walking around with a piece of toilet paper stuck to the bottom of ones foot.
Summary: Parents need to know that Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time is like a Saturday morning cartoon: there's a lot of high-energy antics, some violence in the form of whacking opponents, and a little light irreverence, too, such as flatulence (with plumes of colorful smoke emitting out of their behinds) and x-rays that can reveal the underwear underneath the clothes of Rabbids in posters. In one part of the game there is a reference to beer, as well.
Excerpt: Time travel is always an interesting point of discussion. Special relativity, wormholes, parallel universes, Hawking's chronology protection conjecture, flux capacitors – it's the kind of thing that fuels heated debates late at night, usually after watching something like Lost or Donnie Darko.
Excerpt: I feel that the Rabbids are definitely one of the most charming and cutest characters to come out of this generation. Not only were they able to convey so many emotions without any words at all, they were quirky enough in their behaviours to always ask the player what their true intentions may have been and what thoughts may have been going through their head.
Excerpt: One of my favorite launch titles on the Wii four years ago was Rayman Raving Rabbids. It was a unique, comedic experience that mixed motion controls with fun mini-games. Fast forward to 2010 and all it seems that gets released on the Wii are motion control mini-games. The novelty has worn off.
Conclusion: The Rabbids are at their humorous best and there are definitely some classic moments in the game. Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time is a heap of fun, although it is better when playing with friends than by on your lonesome. Loading times take a little bit longer than I would have expected considering the mini games aren’t that involved.
Pros: Heaps of games to try, each with their own play style.
Cons: The games don’t have a whole heap of depth to them.
