Metachronos overall score = 8.0 / 10

Positive
# Rabbids
# Lots of quirky, offbeat minigames that make good use of the controls
# More Rabbids
# Plenty of legitimately funny humor
# So many, many Rabbids

Negative
# Minigames tend to repeat the same formulas a bit too often
# Multiplayer is rather limited for a party game
# Some unfortunate graphical blemishes

One style of game that seems like it won't be underrepresented on the Wii is the party game, if the Wii's launch lineup is any indication. In Rayman Raving Rabbids, Ubisoft has taken its popular Rayman platformer franchise and turned it into a party game. There is a major single-player component to Raving Rabbids; however, this single-player game doesn't use any of the traditional Rayman gameplay. The entire package consists of different minigames, with many layered throughout the single-player game and also built out into multiplayer. Fortunately, this structure works just fine. The bulk of the game's 70-odd minigames are clever and inventive uses of the Wii's motion-sensing technology, and the game's completely off-the-wall slapstick humor stays fresh and funny all the way through. It could have used more in the way of multiplayer support, but that quibble aside, you'll find plenty of amusement in Raving Rabbids.



There's not much that's impressive here, but the cheery in-game music and the rather strange but totally captivating licensed soundtrack (with versions of "Misirlou," "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," and "La Bamba," among others) do a lot to keep things interesting. The totally wacky screams of the rabbids are also oddly amusing. Normally stuff like this comes off as grating, but whoever did the audio for the rabbids totally nailed it. Rayman Raving Rabbids succeeds because it finds creative and very funny ways to make the Wii's motion-sensing technology work for it. It features a nice variety of games to play with, and it stays entertaining thanks to some great humor. Here's hoping the rabbids find their way into many more games in the future.
