    Review :: Rayman Raving Rabbids - Wii

    With dozens of mini-games and superb implementation of the Wii controllers, Rayman Raving Rabbids is an excellent introduction to the wonders of Wii.

    I played a few of the mini games before getting bored and moving on to Zelda on Christmas day. (Although my 2 year old nephew loves "RaRa Rabbids, Swing-a-cow", and has since he first saw the trailer).

    I think this game is brilliant but I think its more for adults since the games are quite difficult which is why I was up till 4am last Saturday night playing it with a couple of friends!

    Its laugh out loud funny but also a good challenge.

    Its very funny and the games are brilliantly varied...the shooter one makes me think Time Crisis/House of the Dead or similar would go down a treat on the Wii.

    I just can't get past the damn level; with the toilets...the first one
    Try changing the Nunchuck/Wii-mote to the other hand, worked for me on this and "Bunnies Love Carrot Juice"

    I'm trying to stop thinking about buying this on the way home later.
    But, just in case I can't help my self, how many player can join it at the same time? i.e. is this the game where I invest in a third and perhaps fourth pair of controllers?

    Ahh the secret to that one is to ALWAYS aim your hand at the dead centre of the cubicle rather than the toilet door.

    That should sort it out

    I love this game Well more precisely I love the time-crisis style end-of-level games and the 'dance mat' style rhythm game...the pulp fiction one(s) are great fun.

    I was dissapointed by the lack of a 'real' rayman platforming aspect, but I guess we'll have to wait longer before we get one of those ;/

    The game comes in two modes:

    Story mode :- which is single player

    Score mode : which is single or multiplayer.

    In multipayer, you have the option of entering 4 players but there are a few caveats you should know about:

    1. Not all games are multiplayer at the same time. Shooting the bunnies in the plunger shoot is 2 player max only. The ice puck game is 4 player though.
    2. Some games act as single player with each player taking a turn to beat the score.
    3. Each player will require their own Wiimote and Nunchuk controllers.
    4. Games will not become available to play until they are unlocked in the single player story mode.

    As a game, it's excellent fun. My wife and I regularly have a session at bunny shooting.

    For those who have not completed it yet, there is a great twist in the story when Rayman escapes.

    I need help on the two levels where you kick the bunnies who dance to a music track from one of 4 different radios on a beach. At first I am able to kick them and then all of a sudden I stop kicking. Is there a limit on the number of kicks I can do? Has anyone completed these levels? It's stopping me from completing the game 100%

    I was kind of surprised that the platforming element wasn't included. I did initially think that the mini-games were a side event to the main storyline. I still think it's one of the best Wii games out there.

    The radio level seems bugged on my version. I can't complete it, but can't see what I'm doing wrong.

    That happened to me it really infuriated me lol

    I had to sell the game on in the end, because of the way it was set out, it doesn't have much going for it, single player is just lots of mini games with no real structure.

    Multiplayer is just annoying as it takes you ages to find which game you want to play and what you want to play. Also the fact that the majority of the mini games aren't simultaneous is very annoying.

    Shame though, despite the toilets, some things were really fun and made me giggle a few times. But I got so mad at times lol

    Ian

    EDIT:
    The radio one is definitely bugged, you clearly do the action and it either does it or doesn't, it is so annoying i had just one person to kick with 20 seconds remaining, but I couldnt do it, it is just so frustrating to see how many problems have got through. I think ubisoft are throwing away their reputation tbh. Also I did notice a fair few frame-rate drops where the picture stalled for a tiny amount of time which again is disappointing

    Steve, there's a fix for that one as well - you have to up the refresh rate to 60Hz on the Wii settings menu.

    Then you should be able to kick those damn bunnies!

    After nearly 2 hours of screaming frustration we skipped it, went back to the arena and went out the end of level exit.

    We thought it stopped working after you hit so many bunnies but never enough, maybe it is bugged or just some obscure rule for that level.
