Pros:Lot of fun, can be solo or multiple players, humorous, a great buy at $20
The Bottom Line: Buy it! The price is great, the game is awesome. It plays smoothly, is very interactive and has humor that will make all players giggle at least at some point.
As an adult player of the Wii system, I was a little skeptical when I picked up the game. I have learned from experience to rent a Wii game before I buy it, just because so many of them aren't as expected. Needless to say, I bought the game right after renting it.

The game begins when the feature character (Rayman, who is a large rooster) is captured by the raving rabbids. Rayman then becomes a toy to the rabbids as he is used along the lines of a gladiator in an arena. What follows are a plethora of mini-games (70 to be exact).
To understand the nature of the games, one must understand that the rabbids are a bit demented. No one dies in the game, but there is some cartoon violence along the lines of a slightly more graphic looney tunes.
The games include things like:
- Dancing with the rabbids, where one must tap the remotes in time to the beat - Brain maze, where one must run a ball through a rabbids brain by turning the remote every which way - flying through hoops by gentle twisting movements- a door slamming game where one must flick the remote to shut one of four bathroom doors where rabbids are lurking behind - a juice bar where one must shake the remote in one hand and aim at rabbids with the other to fill up their diving masks - shooting plungers where one must reload with one hand and shoot with the other - tracing games - plus, several more.
Solo mode must be used to unlock the games for multi-player mode. In solo play, players unlock new outfits and songs through playing and beating sets of 4 randomly selected minigames.
The game is very much along the line of Mario Party in its minigames, however it is a bit more interactive because it tends to require the user to use both hands.
On top of that, the game actually works like it is supposed to. It is not glitchy at all.
Game play can be either solo or up to 4 players.
At the current price of only $19.99, I would recommend this game for anyone's collection. I find myself laughing at the simple humor frequently. It is one of the few games that wii has produced that is truly worth having. Congrats to Ubisoft on creating a winner! I look forward to trying the two follow-up games Raving Rabbids 2 and Raving Rabbids TV Party.
