Rayman Raving Rabbids 2

January 9, 2008 at 3:38 am (Video Games)

(8.00/10.00) One of my favorite launch titles for the Wii was Rayman Raving Rabbids, a minigame collection where Rayman vied to save rescue himself and others from the evil rabbids. Now he and the rabbids are back, and this time they want the world. Rayman infiltrates their base and takes them down from the inside. The minigames are still fun this time around, with the zaniness and hillarity all intact. Some of the minigames are some of the most fun I’ve seen in a while, while others are OK. My favorites include The Office mingame, the Spiderman spoof, the Indiana Jones spoof, and the anesthetics game. This time instead of sets of 5, you take on World Tours, where you go to a set of 6 minigames, and after you beat them, you unlock a shooting game, which you can play later. There are five “continents”, and each one feels fair in length. The game adds replay value allowing you to go back and unlock extra games in other play-throughs. You can even customize your own trip, adding for some fun. The shooting missions are, to me, the biggest improvement. This time around they used real world video, so the Rabbids are running around in a real environment with real people, like live-action. Overall, this game is a solid sequel, and a crazy, zany minigame collection for any Wii owner. And despite some length issues and some variety in the minigames, this is a solid installment.
