The torch has been passed from one Nintendo generation to the next which means it's time for my first review of a Wii game over at AMN. The honor goes to Ubisoft's Rayman Raving Rabbids, the tale of psychotic bunnies bent on world domination and the bizarre minigames they inflict on Rayman and the Globoxes.
The minigames are, as expected, the meat of the game. Each one takes only a minute or two to play and revolves around the bunnies in some way. For example, "Bunnies Are Addicted To Carrot Juice" puts players behind the counter at a beachside juice bar. Bunnies begin to rise up from the sea (wearing swim trunks and snorkel masks) and walk towards the bar. Shake the nunchuk rapidly and continuously to spray juice at the onscreen targeting reticule which is controlled by moving the Wii remote. The object of this challenge is to fill each bunny’s mask with carrot juice in order to prevent them from reaching the bar. Survive the onslaught for the required time to win the challenge.
It's not a very deep game, but it does have those amusing bunnies, and, if you think about it, isn't that really what the holidays are all about?
