Atomic Gamer (Dec 14, 2006)
When Nintendo first started touting the Wii as a console that really redefines how you have fun playing video games, I think that at least at the start, what they were envisioning was exactly what Rayman Raving Rabbids delivers. We'll see how that is evolved and tuned even further as the Wii matures, but this is definitely one of the best games to launch with the system. Even if there aren't any kids in your household, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up if you've got a Wii.
Gaming Target (Nov 30, 2006)
Players who are planning on making this game the centerpiece to their multiplayer party gatherings should be aware that, with some exceptions, most of the multiplayer games in Rayman consist of taking turns to see who gets the highest score rather than simultaneous group action.
Cheat Code Central (Nov 22, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is an excellent beginning for the Wii. The game is almost fully realized although it suffers from some repetition, but that gives it room for improvement. I will patiently be awaiting Rayman Raving Rabbids 2.

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. If you want your Rayman fix, then the Wii version is 100% the way to go.
Rayman Raving Rabbids, out of all of the Nintendo Wii launch titles, is the funniest and most obscure. Though the thrills won’t last forever, the laughs will. Every time one of those Rabbids lets out a scream, I still laugh. I’d love to see Ubisoft flesh out these little guys, and I’d be completely happy with a full-featured shooter, warthog racer, or rhythm-based game starring them. Rayman Raving Rabbids should have a spot in your Wii collection with Legend of Zelda and some of the other great Wii launch titles.
Armchair Empire, The (Feb 10, 2007)
Lowbrow humor aside, Raving Rabbids still succeeds in being a far more compelling party game than a lot of its competition on the Wii. With 70 mini-games, each with a lot of thought poured into it, there is plenty here to keep gamers, and even non-gamers interested for a very long time.
N-Zone (Jan 10, 2007)
Neben Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz sind die kreischenden Möhrenschlemmer mein ganz persönlicher Party-Favorit. Die 75 Minispiele sind in geselliger Runde der absolute Spaßbringer und wer als Solozocker das Abenteuer durch hat, erhält mit den Decathlons, Triathlons und Pentathlons neue Herausforderungen.
FOK!games (Mar 03, 2007)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is een fantastisch spel en een ontzettend leuke partygame. De singleplayer biedt genoeg lol en leert je de spellen alvast kennen (het verhaal doet er natuurlijk niet toe en is niet bijster sterk), maar in de score mode zul je onwijs veel plezier hebben met de 75 minigames. Dit is ook één van de weinige spellen die je met z'n vieren kan spelen, en de ervaring is het meer dan waard! De graphics zijn netjes, de muziek is leuk, grappig, en de liedjes voor de danslevels zijn fantastisch. Kortom: iedereen die een Wii heeft of binnenkort zal hebben, en een leuke multiplayergame zoekt: je hebt hem gevonden. Pas op voor rondvliegende wc-ontstoppers!
GameZone (Jan 09, 2007)
Wii owners might be breaking the bank with so many must-play titles available, but don’t let that prevent you from playing this mini-game masterpiece. Whoever thought the word “masterpiece” could ever be in the same sentence as “mini-game”?
eToychest (2006)
It is an unfortunate note that the game doesn’t support progressive scan, that some of the later minigames are either not as fun or simply rehashes of others, and that the ending is rather tame, but these are really minor issues when considering this game's overall value. Anyone who puts a few minutes with Rayman will have a hard time walking away without having smiled or laughed, and given that the bulk of the gameplay is so incredibly infectious simply adds up to one of the best launch offerings for the Wii.
83 (Dec 27, 2006)
Play a game that combines crazy, hilarious moments with some nice gameplay. Just play Rayman Raving Rabbids. Ubisoft reinvents Rayman. It's quite simple really: Raving Rabbids is the most fun, pleasant and cosy game since Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot. Ideal for Christmas holiday. Even more so for parties with friends or family. To be on acid or not to be on acid.
83 (Dec 07, 2006)
Gut gemacht, Ubisoft! Dieses Spiel sollte sich kein Wii-Käufer mit Humor und Partylaune entgehen lassen. Man gewöhnt sich zwar sehr schnell an die Zwerchfellkracher und hat sich noch schneller durchgezockt, aber die Auswahl an Minigames ist üppig und die Steuerung passt wunderbar zum Konzept der Konsole - dieses Spiel riecht förmlich nach Wii. Selbst Neuspieler, Niespieler oder konservative Mausonlyzocker werden mit den durchgeknallten Hasen ihren Spaß haben. Ich habe mir in den Momenten, in denen man Rayman frei steuern kann, allerdings immer ein echtes Jump' n Run mit dem Schlappohr gewünscht - vielleicht kommt das ja noch. Auf dem PC und der PS2 vergeht die Faszination recht schnell, denn hier fehlt einfach das Neue, die rhythmische Controllergymnastik, das frische Timingerlebnis.
IGN (Nov 16, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a gamble for Ubisoft because it is so dramatically different from its predecessors. It's not a platformer, but don't let that deter you because it is still easily one of the better games available for Nintendo's new generation system this year. Ubisoft understands that Wii is about new ways to play and it has with Rabbids created a title that utilizes the Wii remote 70 times over. The majority of minis in the title are fun whether you're playing by yourself or with friends, although there are the occasional duds. The biggest drawback is that many of the minis are not designed for simultaneous play; instead you go in sequence. But even with that being true the experience is still engaging and addictive and the title's sense of humor is in a league of its own. It is almost unfair to label this effort a Rayman game because the real stars of the project are the bunnies, whose blank faces and inevitable agonized screams will make you laugh over and over again.
So, wie sich der neue Rayman jetzt aber präsentiert, ist es leider nicht mehr als ein Hin- und Hergehüpfe von Minispiel zu Minispiel mit einer Ausrede von Geschichte. Das soll aber bei Weitem nicht heißen, die Minispiele hätten keine gute Qualität: Nein, hier hat sich Ubisoft wirklich ins Zeug gelegt und eine riesige Palette an unterschiedlichen Ideen und Verwendungszwecken von Wii-Remote und Nunchuk abgeliefert. Der Punktemodus ist ein netter Zeitvertreib, sobald man den Abenteuermodus nach ca. 10 Stunden abgearbeitet hat, und spornt ein wenig den Ehrgeiz an, alle Rekorde zu brechen und alles Mögliche freizuschalten. Deswegen hat das Spiel eine recht hohe Langzeitmotivation. Hat man das aber alles erreicht, ist die Lust, ein weiteres Mal einen Hasen durch die Lüfte zu schleudern oder irgendwelche Klotüren zu schließen, nicht mehr besonders gegeben.
GamingExcellence (Mar 28, 2007)
In the end, what every Wii owner has clearly come to expect from their games is a clever and fun use of the hardware and the controllers. In this respect Rayman Raving Rabbids succeeds admirably and even manages to deliver a game which can be (much like Wii Sports) enjoyed by almost anyone who plays it. A great compilation of mini-games, some of which have actual depth, and an infectious sense of frenzy and humor make this an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a Wii title that will flaunt and justify their new hardware purchase.
GamesFire (Jan 22, 2007)
Ubisoft hat mit Rayman Raving Rabbids ein sehr lustiges Spiel für Jung und Alt auf die Beine gestellt. Die vielen Minigames bieten genügend Abwechslung und sind dank Multiplayer- bzw. Punkte-Modus auch immer wieder spielbar, sodass eine ausreichend große Langzeitmotivation gegeben ist. Die Steuerung mit Wiimote und Nunchuck ist sehr durchdacht und leicht verständlich, sodass ein idealer Einstieg garantiert werden kann. Kurzum: Auf einer Wii-Party sollte Rayman Raving Rabbids nicht fehlen.
Gamernode (Nov 17, 2006)
In the end, Rayman Raving Rabbids is not what you would expect from a Rayman title, but you really shouldn't care. The rabbits in the game are my favorite characters in a long while, and by playing this game you'll fall in love with the little critters, too. The minigames are fun and engaging even without support for multiplayer for most games, and many of them you'll come back to time and time again when you want a quick break from the real world or need a laugh. If you're looking for a game which truly showcases what the Wii is all about, or if you're looking for a game to match your own twisted sense of humor, you'd do yourself a disservice by not picking up Raving Rabbids.
Nintendo Life (Mar 22, 2007)
All in all, Rayman Raving Rabbids provides an excellent single player experience full of laughs. Unfortunately the multiplayer aspect does not quite live up to the solo-play standards, but it is still good fun. In terms of mini-game length and appearance this game is deeper than WarioWare, however it lacks the depth of variety its Nintendo rival has. If you like mini-games and crazy French rabbits, the chances are high that you will love this game.
GamerDad (Apr 01, 2007)
The games are, for the most part, good. Often they're made even more fun because of the game's singular style and sense of humor. Minigames range from pumping your arms up and down to run down the beach, flinging the remote like a lasso to simulate tossing a cow like an Olympic hammer-throw, or shooting evil bunnies with a plunger-gun. Great fun, slapstick violence, and a wicked sense of humor make this a great party game for the more advanced players in your household.
HonestGamers (Nov 21, 2006)
Rayman: Raving Rabbids won't change the way you think about the Wii or mini-game extraveganzas, but it's a fun little package to play alone or with a friend.
A great introduction to the Wii’s unique abilities and a party game most people will enjoy. The bunnies are the real stars of the game, and are its main source of humour and interest.
Cubed3 (Dec 18, 2006)
Perhaps the best third party launch title and certainly a damn fine introduction to revolutionary game control. A definite rental and perhaps a game all Wii owners should invest in, Wario Ware has a new nemesis in town.
Da Gameboyz (Jan 16, 2007)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is not the platform game many will expect as it leans on mini-games to further the story along. With innovative use of the Wii-mote and some pretty stylish graphics and sound, this game is definitely worth the price of admission. The addition of multiplayer is an added bonus too.
UOL Jogos (Dec 01, 2006)
Outro benefício de boas pontuações e comparar sua performance com outros jogadores do mundo. Mas ao invés de usar as funcionalidades online do Wii, a Ubisoft optou pelo burocrático sistema de códigos: quebre um recorde, clique em internet no menu do game, anote a senha num papel, vá ao seu PC, acione seu navegador e digite o código no site oficial do jogo. Se o Wii não pudesse se conectar online vá lá, mas, a exemplo dos concorrentes PlayStation 3 e Xbox 360, o console da Nintendo tem suporte à conexão online de fábrica.
Lawrence (Dec 04, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is one of the best launch titles for the Wii, and shows off different controller applications better than any of the others. You’ll blow through the single player in a few sittings, but a few of the minigames will keep you coming back for more.
Purojuegos (2006)
Si bien el titulo es muy divertido tiene lógicamente la contra de que se hace demasiado corto, aunque es justo mencionar que tiene una rejugabilidad bastante interesante. En definitiva, Rayman Raving Rabbids es uno de los mejores juegos que hasta el momento hay en el catalogo de Wii.
Video Game Talk (Jan 04, 2007)
All-in-all, Rayman Raving Rabbids provides an entertaining experience. Its mini-game orientation makes it perfect for playing in short bursts or with groups of friends. It also bodes well for the Wii’s future to see a third party developer already embracing the console’s unique abilities in such a creative fashion. The game is relatively short, so it would most likely be suited for a rental by players who tear through a game and then move on to the next one. For those who would enjoy regularly revisiting the mini-games for improved scores or those who often have multiple players on their Wii, Rayman Raving Rabbids is worth picking up.
EL33TONLINE (Sep 12, 2007)
All and all this is a solid launch title and is loads of fun, get ready for a sore stomach the next day as the Rabbids will have you in stitches.
Game Over Online (Mar 08, 2007)
If you are a fan of mini-games, then Rayman Raving Rabbids is easy to recommend. Though some games are repeated in different forms, and some controls problems are present, there is certainly plenty of fun to be had. The creative style makes for a fun, pleasant setting, and if you are looking for some shallow and engaging fun to pass the time, then go pick this one up.
80 (Dec 12, 2006)
Ubisofts Zugpferd für die Wii-Konsole kann man durchaus als gelungen bezeichnen, allerdings konnte dieser Titel bei uns nur knapp die 80%-Wertung erreichen. Die zahlreichen Minigames und die einwandfreie Steuerung sind zwar schön und gut, aber zeitweise vermisst man die Innovation und den Einfallsreichtum bei den Minigames. Die Aufgaben wiederholen sich teilweise zu oft oder sind manchmal viel zu einfach zu lösen, als dass man sie nun als Herausforderung ansehen könnte. Dennoch bietet Rayman Raving Rabbids gerade im Multiplayermodus viel Spielspaß, den man nicht verpassen sollte wenn man öfters zu zweit oder mit mehreren Freunden spielt.
GameSpot (Nov 19, 2006)
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.
GameSpy (Nov 25, 2003)
The million-dollar question for party gamers seems to regard whether or not Rayman Raving Rabbids is a better purchase than Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. From the time spent playing both, there are pros and cons to each. While SMB has a more diverse range of mini-games that utilize the Wii Remote in what feels like more ways than Rayman, Raving Rabbids has more mini-games that work well. Sure, there might be three games that all use the same control function, but they're fun. Ultimately, one can only hope that a sequel will improve on certain issues, such as a few clunky mini-games that eat away at the fun factor, but overall, for the sense of humor, entertaining presentation, and the online scoreboards, Rayman is the winner in this launch battle.
GameTrailers (Nov 23, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids rolls triple 6’s for charisma, but the overall implementation is flawed. The games repeat core mechanics too often, many solo games go on too long for good alternating multiplayer, and while it’s safe to say the Wii version is going to be the superior one, it doesn’t lend itself to extended play due to the repetition and possible physical strain. It’s a solid launch game, heavy on the launch, but time and an expanding genre bubble will quickly push it to the margins, or more likely, the footnotes as a shiny, funky tech demo.
Diehard GameFan (Feb 22, 2007)
Breaking out of the normal Rayman platforming formula, Rayman Raving Rabbids succeeds as a collection of fast paced minigames. It’s as if many if not all of these games were designed for play using the Wii Remote, which makes it interesting to see how they will play out on PS2 and Xbox 360. Despite a load of cartoony party-style games available at Wii Launch, Rayman Raving Rabbids rises above.
75 (2006)
Rayman marque son retour dans un party game sympathique et plutot original.
WiiDSFrance (Feb 18, 2009)
En définitive, ce Rayman contre les Lapins Crétins se pose comme un des titres à posséder absolument sur Nintendo Wii. Exploitant au mieux les possibilités offertes par le combo Wiimote + Nunchuk, le titre développé par les frenchies de Ubisoft a tout pour plaire aux petits comme aux grands. Avec ses 75 mini-jeux, son mode Score et ses innombrables bonus à débloquer, le soft peut également se vanter d'être doté d'une durée de vie conséquente. En tout cas, si vous aimez le type d'humour déjanté proposé par Michel Ancel et sa bande, et que les graphismes un peu en deçà de ce qu'on peut attendre ne vous rebutent pas, vous pouvez foncer sans plus tarder. 60€ pour autant de tranches de rire seul ou entre amis, ce n'est vraiment pas cher payé ! Incontournable.
75 (Dec 05, 2006)
Amusant, divertissant, délirant et plutôt bien pensé, Rayman Contre Les Lapins Crétins jouit d'un gameplay séduisant pour s'avérer être un bon titre sur Wii, idéal pour promouvoir les qualités indéniables de la Wiimote et du Nunchuk. Tout en restant un Party-Game, le jeu propose un mode Histoire que les utilisateurs solos sauront apprécier. Ses quelques défauts de contenu sont une raison d'espérer une suite encore plus complète.
Extreme Gamer (Jan 04, 2007)
Served with a side dish of humor, Rayman Raving Rabbids makes use of the Nintendo Wii's motion sensor and gives the next best answer to a Wario game. Ubisoft made a wise choice switching their Rayman format to cash in on Nintendo's new console. Rayman Raving Rabbids is a treat and an unexpected hit. Highly Recommended.
70 (Apr 08, 2007)
Die ravenden Hasen haben mich eigentlich von Anfang an direkt erobert. Der Humor ist einfach schön und die Minispiele sprechen jeden direkt an. Durch die Webcodes ist auch eine Langzeitmotivation vorhanden und gerade im Multiplayermodus kann das Spiel Punkten. Ein Spiel, welches den Wii von der Steuerung so ziemlich ausnutzt und dadurch super spielbar ist. Für alle Partyfreunde, Minispielsüchtigen und Hasenliebhaber/hasser ein muss.
Factornews (Dec 22, 2006)
Si vous ne pouvez acheter qu’un jeu avec la Wii, prenez The Legend of Zelda : Twilight Princess. Si vous pouvez en prendre deux, achetez Rayman. Même si la partie graphique laisse à désirer et qu’il comporte pas mal de défauts, Rayman contre les lapins crétins c’est l’assurance de s’amuser entre amis et de jouer à un jeu qui file la banane. On devient aussi crétin que les lapins en y jouant mais ça fait du bien de temps en temps. Soldats, à vos ventouses !
70 (Jun 04, 2007)
Raving Rabbids does have a lot of comedy and charm, because of the looney character design. Rayman Raving Rabbids on the PS2 has all of the game's sense of humor. If you own a Wii you'll love it. But the PS2 version is plenty of fun and just as funny also. You won't be missing out on much there. The game is totally bonkers and it's brilliantly, comically surreal. I give it a 7 out of 10.
Worth Playing (Jan 26, 2007)
If you're looking to buy a Wii or already have one and are looking for a good game with which to show off, Rayman: Raving Rabbids is one of the top choices. Although the gameplay has issues and the multiplayer is weak, the variety of mini-games is a perfect way to show off exactly what the console can do. While Rabbids is coming to other systems soon, I feel confident in saying that the Wii version is the one to get. There seems to be no way that a regular controller can match the goofy fun that the Wii version of Rabbids provides. Now if I could only find a Rabbid plush doll ….
Le Geek (Jan, 2008)
Recommended, particularly if you can find an inexpensive copy. Avoid the lackluster sequel though.
70 (Jan 10, 2007)
Alles in allem muss man Raymans aktuellem Abenteuer aber eines zugestehen: Der Titel bindet zwar nicht auf lange Sicht an den Bildschirm – abgesehen von den Highscore-Junkies -, unterhält aber für die gegebene Dauer durch allerhand Spritzigkeit und wirklich einzigartigen Humor. Auf ein zufriedenes "Buaaaaaaaaaah".
70 (Jan 03, 2007)
The Wii launch line-up was blessed with what is arguably the best party game of all time in Wii Sports, and while Raving Rabbids is a far more traditional offering it's good enough to consider picking up for those times when you need a break from bowling, tennis and golf. It's also a much more entertaining single-player experience than the other party games available for the Wii, although clearly doesn't offer the depth that a Rayman platformer would have. Raving Rabbids is unlikely to be remembered as a classic when we look back at the Wii in five years time, but for now it's one of the better titles available and well worth a look.
CanardPC (Jan 12, 2007)
Ce Rayman est terriblement con, et c'est pour ça qu'on l'aime. Entièrement composé de petits jeux plus ou moins marrants, il est sympa en solo et poilant avec des amis. C’est le "Party Game" idéal. Et sans vouloir inciter à la débauche, je vous confirme que c’est après avoir abusé d'alcool et de marrons qu'on en profite le plus... On regrettera qu’il soit vendu un peu cher et qu’il faille débloquer toutes les épreuves en solo pour les réaliser en multi, mais ça reste quand même un titre indispensable pour ceux qui viennent de s’offrir une Wii...

1UP (Nov 18, 2006)
Bringing the package together is Raving Rabbids' whimsical art style, showing the Wii does have potential for graphical power given the right visual direction. The rabbids and colorful worlds give the game a kitschy, cartoony quality. Combined with the sometimes-bizarre games -- touching sections of a pateless rabbid's brain to make him perform the desired activity with his hands, mouth, or eyes, or yanking worms out of another rabbid's porous teeth -- it makes for a generally enjoyable experience∧, ideally, sets an upward trend for the inevitable flood of similar games to come.
70 (UK) (Dec 07, 2006)
Right now, though, as a launch title, Raving Rabbids is very good fun, especially in the right company. It doesn't have any depth to speak of, but it's unique (for the moment) and has a genuine sense of humour, a quality few games can boast. It's an apt launch title, lacking in polish but rich in character and laughs. It's probably not worth buying just for yourself, but if there's somebody else that you're hoping to entertain with your newly-purchased Wii - especially kids, who seem to find the Rabbids even funnier than the rest of us - then this is a lively, inventive and fun introduction to Nintendo's new way to play.
69 (Dec 15, 2006)
Allein die witzige Steuerung mit Fernbedienung und Nunchuck sorgt dafür, dass Rayman Raving Rabbids auf dem Wii am meisten Spaß macht. Die durchgedrehten und witzigen Minispielen lassen sich intuitiv steuern und ziehen einen Großteil ihrer Motivation daraus. Dennoch ist die Langzeitmotivation äußerst bescheiden, fast alle Disziplinen schafft man mühelos im ersten Anlauf, zum erneuten Spielen fehlt dann bereits mangels Herausforderung schon die Lust. Spaßiger ist das neue Rayman dafür sicherlich im Mehrspielermodus mit bis zu vier Leuten vor der Konsole, wobei aber leider die Minispiele erst im Story-Modus alle frei gespielt werden müssen. Technisch ist die Wii-Version eine einzige Enttäuschung und liegt bei Grafik und Sound sogar noch unter dem schon dürftigen Niveau der PS2-Version. Aufgrund des schwachen Wii-Startlineup könnt ihr Rayman Raving Rabbids auf der Wii eine Chance geben, zwei bis drei Stunden macht die witzige Hasenjagd durchaus Spaß.
Game Revolution (Dec 05, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a great party game for the Wii. Its challenges are easy to grasp and make good use of the Wiimote, but more importantly, it’s fun to watch other people play. It certainly isn’t a game you can just turn on and enjoy any time, but if you plan on throwing many shindigs, make sure and invite Rayman Raving Rabbids.
NintendoWorldReport (Dec 30, 2006)
Rayman: Raving Rabbids is a lot of fun with a group of friends, but only after you've put the time in to unlock all the mini-games, or if you have an SD card and access to the Internet to download a completed save file. The single-player game is little more than an excuse to force you to play all of the mini-games so you can unlock them for multiplayer and high score modes.
Netjak (Jul 26, 2007)
I would recommend Rayman Raving Rabbids, but this is a definite rental. This game is not worth purchasing unless it is $20 or below. Most of the minigames are enjoyable, until they start repeating, but others are just maddeningly frustrating. Likewise, some of the humor works well, but other attempts fall flat. This is an average game- it’ll provide some fun for a week, but it gets old fast.
Thunderbolt Games (Apr 20, 2007)
And that’s the magic of Rayman: Raving Rabbids. Even though it’s all mini-games, and as much as you may hate the association of Wii and kiddy-esque mini-games, the humour is something that everyone can enjoy. It should be not be considered as the game’s saving grace away from being labelled as a kid’s game, but as a justifiable reason for you (yes, you of older than teenager age) to play Raving Rabbids. Okay, yes, there are actually repeat mini-games (with slight variations to make it slightly more difficult), and there are only a limited number of innovative uses/movements for the Wiimote and nunchuck (albeit done well), and not all of the mini-games are instant hits. But each and every one has one slice of humour, big or small, that will put a smile on your face, if not make you laugh-out loud.
Gamezine (Dec 14, 2006)
Au final, Rayman contre les lapins crétins est un party-game plutôt réussi. Pour un titre de lancement, il fait une utilisation intelligente de la Wiimote et le Nunchuk, permettant de dévoiler une partie de leur incroyable potentiel. On peut cependant regretter quelques défauts. Certains sont des détails, comme la mise en scène désastreuse qui ajoute une certaine lenteur au mode Histoire, mais d’autres sont bien plus importants, comme un jeu très pauvre à plusieurs. Avec un univers aussi génial et loufoque, le jeu avait un potentiel énorme, et c’est pour cette raison que j’attends avec curiosité une suite permettant de corriger ces défauts. En attendant, je vous conseillerais tout de même d’attendre Wario Ware pour le solo, et Mario Party pour le multi.
FZ (Dec 14, 2006)
Rayman Raving Rabbids är knappast Michel Ancel eller Raymans bästa, men det är inte på något sätt en katastrof. Spelets bjuder på en underbar design i sann Ancel-anda och även om det är en samling minispel så håller de en tillräckligt hög nivå för att inte besvikelsen ska bli alltför stor. Visserligen upprepar de sig lite för mycket, vilket gör enspelarläget till en rätt långtråkig historia, men har du en bekant att spela med kan flerspelarläget erbjuda många timmar av skratt.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 02, 2008)
A few of the timed games are absolute torture, like the one where you need to slam shut the doors of four bathroom stalls as they slowly swing open. The motion controls in some games are erratic, and you could argue that the shape-tracing controls are altogether broken! This is also one of the only Wii games that complained about me sitting too far away from the television. In the final analysis, Rayman Raving Rabbids offers shallow fun with games you'll both love and hate.
The world, the design and the concept are in place. Raving Rabbids can never pick up enough momentum to have a chance though. All the potential is wasted on a somewhat derivative idea that could have worked a few years ago, but now it's all wasted opportunity. The Wii technology is utilized better elsewhere, and that's where you should be.
