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.

But the question is are you ready for this game? I say that more ominously rather than reassuringly. I’m sure you all see my scores for the game but I simply must explain myself.
