Rayman: Raving Rabbids 2 (Wii)
The Wii gets a lot of stick for its abundance of mini-game compilations but that criticism would feel all the sharper if it wasnt for the fact that most of them are still a lot of fun. Launch game Rayman Raving Rabbids was one of the best and this uses the same basic concept while greatly improving the actual individual games themselves. Instead of being captured, this time the strangely limbless Rayman has to sneak his way into a rabbid headquarters near a shopping centre as the demonic rabbit creatures plan an invasion of Earth (or wherever it is that Rayman actually lives).
Raymans disguises, and those of the rabbids themselves, can all be customised but involve a huge range of movie and video game parodies, from Naruto and Star Wars to Super Mario and Transformers. The actual mini-games are similarly eager to poke fun at anything and everything they can think of including a Guitar Hero spoof, twisted versions of traditional baseball and football sims and even a mini-game set in Ubisofts own offices which tasks you with the arduous goal of not getting any work done.
There are 60 mini-games in total, with the rhythm action stages making a comeback, in revamped form, alongside the popular first person shoot em-up levels. In fact theres overall a much greater emphasis now on multiplayer games one of the weak spots of the original. Almost every game can be played with a friend now, allowing everyone to share the surreality.

Not all the mini games are brilliant, but the graphics are hysterical, making this a must have party game. I can imagine the one star reviewers are playing solo, which would be a huge mistake as this game is so much better with friends.
Best games include slapping the Rabbid kids in the car, serving burgers, running from the boulder, and
rabbid aseall...but so many of them are just too much fun.
This game is great fun, whether you are with children or adults, drunk or sober. Most of my comparison of this is with other party games such as Raving Rabbids 1, Mario Party and Super Monkey Ball. The first great thing you notice is that you don't have to play for ages on your own to 'unlock' the multiplayer games. Just open the box, put it in your machine and choose the multiplayer trip with your friends.
I'm sure most people will also agree that the Rabbids characters are much funnier than the Mario characters and the Monkey Balls, and the activities and noises they get up to reflect this. However, comparing the mini games with the original Rabbids, most of them are more straight-forward, and I guess this is why some reviewers have said they lack the need for any skill. However, what they lack in skill they make up for in fun.
For example, running from the boulder game simply involves moving remote and nunchuk up and down as fast as you can - yes, no skill needed whatsoever - but the fact it leaves you and your friends with cramp in both your arms and in your stomach from laughter makes up for that.
Yes, the games aren't all perfect. There are a few games in the original Rabbids which are better, but looking at the whole package, I believe this sequel is much more playable and overall more fun.
Although I've seen complaints about the game not being fun when played alone - which to an extent I do actually agree with - when they are played in a group most of them are brilliant fun! The burger balancing game mentioned in one of the reviews below is genius in it's level of chaos once you get four players involved! Plus, it certainly helps that the Rabbids themselves are hilariously funny (maybe it's the blend of deranged cartoon violence and toilet humour...)
For the simple reason that this is meant as a party game, I think it's a tad unfair marking it down for a mediocre single player mode or a lack of storyline (I wouldn't play Raving Rabbids 2 by myself but, on the other hand, I wouldn't play the absolutely fantastic Metroid Prime when my friends come round - but they are both really good at what they set out to do).
As a mini game compilation it's perfect for playing with friends round. The simplicity of the games is great for non-gamers, but the level of humour means that hardcore gamers will still have great fun. Although the Wii is a bit flooded with party games at the moment, the Rabbids and the ensuing chaos they generate make this my party game of choice.
All in all this is a game that brings back what gaming should be about - good honest laugh out loud fun. A must buy for all Wii owners.
I'm not as impressed with this sequel. It's pretty much just a whole bundle of mini-games with no real target to aim for or storyline to keep you wanting to move on to the next stage. Once you've been through the games once there's nothing really to make you want to come back and play them again, unless spending a night with friends and a bottle of wine, when the instant access to the individual games can be useful.
The rythmn/dance/music mini games at the end of each 'trip' are still my favourites! Especially when playing in 'normal' mode as if you hit a beat wrong with your instrument it actually plays it that way - very funny when more than one of you is playing!!
Definitly the best Wii game we've bought yet.

Ok enough, but my 7 and 9 year old, rarely play it, their preference is for Rabbids Go Home and Raving Rabbids Travel in Time.Published on 26 Jan. 2014 by LISAP
I had completed it in less than an hour. However, it brings groups together for a good laugh as I had intended buying it for. The more people you have playing, the better!Published on 25 Sept. 2013 by andrew cuthbertson
