Summary: This game is ok. I like variety and my roommate likes kids games, so its a good compromise. It isn't better than the first one in my opinion. We did notice that it gave us more options when we added a third player. It is still a fun game that gets you laughing and it isn't too expensive. I'd say try it out, get it used on the cheap on Amazon.
Summary: I loved the first Raving Rabbids game, and when the 2nd came out I was chomping at the bit to buy it. Boy was that a waste of chomping. I didnt like much of anything about this game really. The layout's completely different, the short games are extremely short and easy...there's no score to beat to move on to the next round. So even if you get 0 for your score it still progresses you in the story.
Summary: To me this game is bittersweet. If you compare it side by side to the original there is a drastic difference most of which have been covered in previous posts. Anyhow.... We purchased this game because, quite simply, the first one was overly addictive. In my great anticipation I popped in the game and expected to be able to blast through some single player semi-story, not so.
Summary: I LOVED the first Wii Rayman game. That was probably the most fun I've had on my Wii to date and I was so happy when I finished it. Being a little Rayman'ed out, I waited several months before getting Rayman 2. It's defintely easier to play, but I miss a few things. Pros: 1) Much faster gameply, you don't have to finish all the games to advance to the next level like in Rayman 1. 2) WAAAY better multiplayer. This is multi-player game now.
Disappointing Compared To 1st Game -- Unless You Want Party Game

Summary: I just loved the first Rayman Raving Rabbids game and was so excited to get the second one. But everything I liked about the first one (clear goals that you had to win to move on, challenging games like "Bunnies Don't Close Doors" mixed with easy fun games, the hilarity of the rabbids and the sound effects, the dancing) were all missing from the second game--which is very heavily multiplayer-oriented to the detriment of the game, I believe.
Summary: Pros: -It's Rayman, so it's got a very comical base to it. -Real video that allows you to experience different countries. -Most of the mini-games are super creative and different. -Same concepts as the first Rayman with the shooting game, playing/singing music and games against the rabbids. Overall the game is fun, but it also has some faults.
Summary: I have read several of the reviews and I think that it has been said right, the first one was better than this one, but there is still plenty of fun and activities to love in this new release. Both fames together are a great look at the sort of games that really only seem possible with the Wii style interface. Would I recommend this to someone else, sure, as long as they already have the first one.
Summary: Go around the world with Rayman, Raving rabbids 2. It's extremely funny as the first one was. It is the same style as the other one (Minigames galore), but it has it's differences. First of all, you can not only play as Rayman (who has changed his voice to sound like a Rabbid's), but you can actually play as a Rabbid and dress them up by winning costumes. The music levels feature new songs such as Smoke on the water, Celebration, and Funky town.
