Summary: As one of the nicer looking games and one of the most fun to play, Rayman Raving Rabbids should not be passed up by any Wii owner. This is a good game to demonstrate some of the Wii-mote capabilities and also ends up being a bit of a workout. Ubisoft did a great job here in taking the Rayman franchise into a bold and new direction. This kind of game cannot be enjoyed on the same level on any other platform.
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.
Excerpt: Look up the word “frivolous” and you’ll see that one of its definitions is “a lack of seriousness.” I don’t think there’s another word that better describes Michael Ansel and Ubisoft Montpellier’s Rayman Raving Rabbids. Raving Rabbids is the most ridiculous and hilarious game I’ve ever played in my life. Essentially a collection of 70 mini-games, Rayman Raving Rabbids isn’t a platformer of the Rayman norm, but it’s still worth checking out for all of its own reasons.
Excerpt: Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven is one of those games that comes almost out of nowhere and surprises people with some great atmosphere and awesome gameplay. The hype for this game has been relatively small compared to the recent blockbusters in the last six months, which makes playing it all that much more enjoyable - I had no idea that this game was going to be this good.
Excerpt: Rayman: Raving Rabbids isn’t your usual Rayman game. There’s no platforming, exploring worlds, or any elements found in the previous games. They’ve dropped that concept for this game, and I personally think it was for the better. “Rabbids” have started trying to take over the world, and you, Rayman, have to stop them. They capture you, and force you to compete in minigames. If you win that day’s rounds (There are 4 + a boss level), you get a plunger.
Excerpt: Ubisofts Häschenwitze werden langsam alt - und verlieren fortwährend an Substanz. Bot das erste "Raving Rabbids"-Game über 75 Minispiele, sind's im mittlerweile fünften Abenteuer der Wii-Bunnies nur noch 25. Den Schwund versuchen die Entwickler von "Die verrückte Zeitreise" mit reichlich abstrusem Humor zu überspielen ...
Conclusion: Rayman R.R. è una grande raccolta di Mini-Game, folli corse su animali, sezioni “FPS”, il tutto condito dai Conigli che rendono il gioco piacevole e che saprà strappare un sorriso a tutte le fasce di età. Gli hardcore gamers potranno storcere il naso davanti a Rayman Raving Rabbids, ma noi vi possiamo assicurare che il titolo, oltre ad avere un decente comparto tecnico, saprà regalarvi ore di divertimento... che forse ultimamente...
Conclusion: Rayman-Fans, aufgepasst. Zwar entspricht das Spielprinzip von Rayman Raving Rabbids nicht dem der bisherigen Teile der Serie, das bedeutet aber nicht, dass das Spiel dadurch an Qualität einbüßt. Der Titel strotzt nur so vor Witz und wartet mit viel Spielspaß auf. Dafür ist nicht zuletzt die neuartige Steuerung verantwortlich. Das Konzept geht in dieser Hinsicht vollkommen auf und das Schütteln und Drehen der Controller macht einfach Freude.
