Excerpt: When the Wii was released, Rayman Raving Rabbids was one of the better games to purchase among a lot of ports and generally poor titles. Though it was a far cry from the Rayman platformers weve been used to, Rayman Raving Rabbids offered a solid multiplayer title that made good use of the Wiis abilities and had a certain charm and craziness that made it a joy to play.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is full of rude and crude rabbits engaged in socially unacceptable shenanigans. They burp loud enough to blow out windows and lean over railings to spit into other characters' coffee cups. However, none of the behavior appears motivated by spite or anger, and their actions seem to have no lasting, negative consequences, which keeps the mood playful.
Excerpt: At some point you have to wonder why Ubisoft feels compelled to continue putting the Rayman name on its Raving Rabbids titles. As on other platforms, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 for the DS barely even features that limbless French guy with the hair, instead focusing almost entirely on those adorably deranged rabbids. If only they had focused instead on providing lots and lots of fun minigames, we might be raving too.
Pros: Nice touch-screen controls, Plenty of crazy rabbits, Good single-cart multiplayer options
Cons: Not enough minigames, Structure of the single-player game breeds repetition, Minigames are often too simple
Excerpt: I'm all for a good mini-game collection. The Wii is at its best when you're playing simple but fun games with friends, so Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 from Ubisoft looked like it would offer the perfect mix of gameplay and zany fun. The original game, which launched alongside the Wii last year, managed to ease the tempers of gamers disappointed by the lack of a traditional Rayman platformer, but Rabbids 2 will likely raise their concerns once again.
Excerpt: While attending E3 in Santa Monica in July 2007 I had the chance to play the sequel to Raving Rabbids, aptly titled Rayman Raving Rabbids 2. I enjoyed playing some of the early mini-games and I thought to myself that this sequel could once again provide some great gaming on the Wii. However, what I forgot was that there are a lot of mini-game compilations out there already and that the developers would have to really do something special in this genre.
Excerpt: The bunnies of Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 are nothing like the fluffy little cottontails envisioned by Beatrix Potter or Walt Disney. They fart, they burp, they spit, and above all, they scream. They also star in what happens to be an extremely enjoyable, inventive and hysterical party game, which is something Flopsy and Mopsy never quite managed to pull off. Like most party games these days, RRR2 is a collection of mini-games loosely collected around a central gimmick.

Excerpt: - I don't want to talk about it), I am not sure that the world is ready for a sequel already. It's a year later now, and Ubisoft Paris has brought back those wascally wabbids again, this time with an invasion to Earth! Rayman seems have pretty much joined them after his imprisonment by the rabbids last year, and now gets to run around like an idiot with them and do all kinds of hilarious things in a series of ridiculous mini-games.
