Excerpt: I know we all love our Wiis but having spent more time incarcerated with Rayman than I care to admit—being the one and only mini-game bonanza in which I partake—Raving Rabbids is just plain better with a standard controller. Admittedly, I may be partially swayed by the HD graphics, a pair of new mini-games, and lightning-fast load times, but even though the game remains the same I found the localized familiarity of my 360 buttons slightly more appealing than the Wiimote...
Excerpt: Anyone who knows Ubisoft knows that Rayman is one of their franchise characters. And anyone who has been following the development of the Wii knows that Ubisoft has been on board almost since day one. Well put Rayman and the Wii in the same mix and you get one crazy game that makes a great addition to the Wii library of games.
Summary: Rayman Raving Rabbids is a multi-player party game that really shows off the Wii’s impressive technology and unique motion-sensitive controls. This great collection of mini-games is hosted by Rayman so you know you can expect some level of hilarious irreverence.
