      A great game - highly recommended

      Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 (Nintendo Wii)

      I have had this game for a couple of years now and it is the second game in the rayman raving rabbids series of games - although this is the first raving rabbids game I bought. This game is available on the nintendo wii and I believe it is also available on the nintendo ds.

      - About the game

      This game is based on the little characters called Rabbids, which are just like rabbits but they are very crazy and they scream and shout a lot - although they are really quite cute and funny. This game features 50 unique mini games and it can support up to four players. The only controller you need for this game is the nintendo wii remote and the nunchuk. This game is rated by pegi for ages 3 and over - although I highly doubt three year old child would be able to play this game. The game was released on Wii and DS in Europe in 2007. This game has been described by the official Nintendo magazine as "The best party game on the wii". The main features of the game include:

      *50 mini games
      *Up to four players (or you can play it as a one player game)
      *You get to choose and also customize your rabbid character
      *You can submit your high scores on the internet through your nintendo wifi connection (if you have set it up)

      - Setting up the game

      To set up the game you just insert the disk and while the game is loading, this only take a minute or less, you can attach the wrist strap on the wii remote to your wrist - you may need to do this as with this game you have to move your arms quite a bit. And at this point you could attach the nunchuk via the USB like port on the end of the wii remote but I would just attach the nunchuk when a mini game in which the nunchuk is needed comes up. Then select the rayman raving rabbids game from the disk menu and you will be presented with the main menu.

      - Main menu and navigating around the menus

      The main menu contains four options to choose from these include: Free play, Plaza, Trip customization and Trips. The free play mode allows you to play any mini games you have unlocked during the trips played. The Plaza option takes you to a shopping mall where you can access the options: character customization, shooting games arcade and jukebox. The Trip customization option allows you to make your own trip (in this game the word 'trip' means a series of mini games). And the last opinion is Trips in which a series of mini games will be randomly selected for you to play - although you can pick the continent you want to play on which will influence the mini games you will play. Navigating around the menus is really easy as the layout is very simple, easy to follow and the menus are also really colourful and bright.

      - Trips

      The main game play option is Trips. The trips option allows you to play all of the mini games available. Also in the trips option you can either play a solo mode or multiplayer mode. We always choose the multiplayer mode as this game is quite a social, funny, interactive game and the solo mode is really quite boring in my opinion. After choosing the multiplayer mode you can then choose your character (you can either pick one of the pre-designed characters or before you click on the trips option you can go onto the Plaza opinion on the main menu and from there you can customize your own rabbid). Then the trip selection page will appear after all of the players have chosen a character to represent them in the game. From the trip selection page you can choose which ever continent you want including: Europe, the USA, Asia, South America and the Tropics. The continent you choose will affect which mini games you will play. Each continent has about nine mini games which are randomly selected and every time you complete a trip, you unlock more trips and mini games.

      - Mini games

      Some of my favorite mini games are as follows: The shooting games such as big city fights and greatest hits. Dial R for rabbids, yummy butterflies and the rock band style games which include the songs satisfaction, funky town and smoke on water. There is also a dancing mini game which is to the song 'singing in the rain' and Hot cake is also a good game. The following paragraphs include some of my favorite and not so favorite mini games in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2:
      *Shooting mini games*

      These mini games in the trips section include: 'Big City Fights' in which you use the buttons on the wii remote to shoot other rabbids dressed in random clothing. Another shooting game is called 'Greatest hits' and this game works in the same way as 'big city fights' as again you have to just shoot rabbids in random clothing items but with this mini game you have to shoot at UFO's as well. I really like these shooting games, especially when you play them on the multiplayer option. They are fairly easy but shooting games are always going to be a winner in my opinion. I would rate these two mini games 5/5.

      *Dial R for rabbid*

      The rabbids are in a movie theatre and you have to use your wii remote as a mobile phone and hold it against your ear and when a security guard comes into the room you have to put the wii remote down - otherwise your rabbid will get squashed by a giant popcorn container or a giant movie award. The longer you have the phone to your ear without being caught the more points you get, it is a simple game but it is quite funny and I think children would definitely like this mini game. This particular mini game in my opinion is quite interactive as you have to use the wii remote in a different way. I would rate this mini game 4/5.

      *Burgerinni*

      You get a tray with a burger on and you have to deliver it to the customer on the other side of the room. This does sound easy and it is quite easy if you are playing as a one player but when you are playing this as a multiplayer game it gets quite funny and not as easy. When playing this as a multiplayer is gets a bit more difficult as when the two or more characters are trying to deliver the order you can easily bang into each other and then the burger will fall and you have to get another from the kitchen - this is made even more difficult as the more times you successfully deliver the burger the higher the stack of burgers on your tray will be. I really like this mini games when played with others as it always ends up in sabotage, with one player running into the other character to make them fall and drop the tower of burgers! I would rate this mini game 5/5.

      *Laundry, Hot cakes, Voodoo rabbids*

      Laundry is a mini game on the Asia continent and all you have to do is use the wii remote to wash the laundry. I like this mini game as it gets you to use the wii remote in a different way which makes the game more interactive. Hot cakes is another good mini game in which you have a hot cake and you have to pass it to the other players, it is quite a funny game in my opinion. Voodoo Rabbids is good too and all you have to do is dig a hole in the ground and throw the soil from your hole in the ground to the other players. It is simple but funny as we always pick on one other player to throw all of the soil at! I would rate these three mini games overall 4/5.

      *Rolling stone, Snake charmer, RRR Xtreme beach volleyball*

      Rolling stone is a really simple game and it is quite boring in my opinion as all you have to to is run away from a giant boulder - think Indiana Jones and the raiders of the lost ark. The snake charmer is another game that I don't really like as again I find it a bit boring. What you have to do for this game is press the buttons on the wii remote as shown on the screen to charm the snake. Finally, RRR Xtreme beach volleyball, this is one game that I do not play as I find it quite difficult as the sensor does not seem to be sensitive enough with this game to be able to hit the volleyball (well it is actually a giant watermelon they are using) - this mini game in my opinion is the worst in the game. I would rate these three mini games 2/5.

      Overall, there are a lot of fantastic, funny and entertaining mini games including the ones already mentioned and also: TNT, 'Are we there yet?' (which is very funny), Splitter sells and one of my favorites is American football - and you just have to play American football (similar to rugby but with lots of body padding!). The amount of fantastic mini games far out weigh the awful mini games of which there are about five/six in my opinion. The majority of these mini games are funny, entertaining, easy to play and interactive - but they are best played with others.

      - Other options: Plaza and rabbid customization

      The plaza option is really good as from there you can access the jukebox for songs, you can play any of the shooting games from the trips and there is also the rabbid/character customization. The character customization is really quite funny and a really unique and interesting addition to this game. In the rabbid customization option you can select your rabbid and then dress them up in random (but funky) clothing and accessories. Some of the outfits will be locked until you play all of the trips (the more mini games and trips you play, the more outfits, clothing and accessories will be unlocked). Some of the outfits your rabbid can be wearing includes: the assassins creed outfit, a pirate outfit (which consists of a pirate hat and a barrel), a green zombie like body suit, a teenage mutant ninja turtle outfit and many more. You can pick whole pre-designed outfits or you can mix and match. For example, my rabbid is wearing the new season trend - Mexican wrestler means Viking!

      - Free play and Trip customization

      The free play option is where you can play all of the mini games you have unlocked during the trips section. You choose your character as normal and then you can choose what game you want to play such as American football, Burp, The office (not one of my favorites), smoke on water (my favorite song to play out of the rock band style mini games) and many others. The trip customization is a game option we have picked quite a few times, as you can actually pick which continent you want to play on and also you can pick every single game you want to play (and how many mini games you want to play) which I think is great and it is an option I haven't seen on any other game for the wii.

      - Price and availability

      We bought this game a couple of years ago for about £20 and it is now priced at: Play.com and GAME: £14, Amazon.co.uk new from £19.99 and this game can also be found on eBay.co.uk. It is also available for Nintendo DS as well as the Wii.

      Conclusions

      Positives

      *Very funny and entertaining and it is a really good social game
      *Great for the whole family (and friends) to play - although the sound that the rabbids make can be quite annoying after a while
      *About 50 mini games to play from shooting things to the down right bizarre!
      *Bright, colourful graphics and good (but cheesy) music
      *Character customization is a great additional to this game in my opinion
      *Free play (you can practice individual games)
      *Trip customization where you can pick exactly what mini games you want to play on the trip
      *Great instruction booklet
      *Easy to play and the mini games are just fantastic (apart from a few)

      Negatives

      *Some of the mini games are not so fantastic but this only applies to a few of the mini games such as: Rolling stone, Snake charmer and RRR Xtreme beach volleyball

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A hilarious game for all the family.

      I recently bought a Nintendo Wii and saw a three-for-the-price-of-one deal on Rayman Raving Rabbids games. Included in the package was this game, and it was the first one I tried.

      ~Packaging and Appearance~
      Rayman Raving Rabbids comes in a plastic box, like all Wii games and on the front is close-up picture of a Rabbid. Anyone can probably tell just by looking at this game for the first time that it is very funny, a bit silly and obvioulsy aimed at children (and any adults who enjoy a bit of fun).

      ~Plot~
      The Rabbids are back this time they want to take over the world! They cleverly (or rather not) disguise themselves as humans to blend into the background. They visit many reigions around the globe, unaware that Rayman is on their tail and trying to stop them!

      ~Game~
      As with all Wii games, the Wii Remote is required for this game as well as the Nunchuck, which is another type of remote used with the Wii. The Remote and Nunchuck are used by shaking and moving them in any way that the game wants you to. In each region there are silly but hilarious minigames that the Rabbids have to complete in order to finish the country and move onto another. All the minigames are themed to fit in with the country they are in. But the best thing about the game is that it can be played with up to four players, so you can compete to win.

      ~Price~
      The price depends on where you get it from, but on average it's about £25, but you can get it way cheaper from Amazon.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      If you have a wii go and buy this game..you wont regreat it!

      If you have a wii,you should definitely buy this game. If you dont have a wii, you should buy one for this game. This is by far the best raving rabbids game released. The first one not quite getting the party feel right and the third one concentrating a little too much on the wii balance board, isolating players at times.

      For me just looking at the box makes me feel like I'm about to have a good time and gives me a bit of a chuckle everytime I look at it. Two rabbids clinging on to the wing of a plane for dear life and the other freezing up against the plane window, holding a passport. The back of the game says its 'the craziest party game you'll ever experience' which is pretty much spot on!

      The game is based on the rabbids wanting to take over our world. They travel to various locations to try and gather information on us! Rayman - disguised as a rabbid is trying to infiltrate them and stop their evil plan! (If you own this game and havent watched the video intro you should- its amazing!)

      When you start playing the game there are a few options:

      Trips - This is what you choose if you want to play a number of games in a row. You can choose to travel alone - or with a group of friends (up to 4 players). You can then choose the destination of your trip between the USA, Asia, Europe, South America and the Tropics. Each trip has mini games themed to the different location and each location has nine different mini games to choose from- five of which you randomly play when on a trip.

      Freeplay - This is what you choose if you just want to randomly select mini games to play. You can play alone or with up to 4 players. The mini games are arranged by the trip destinations. You just select which area and then choose one of the nine mini games. Before playing you can choose whether you want to play on easy or normal mode. Whilst playing in freeplay you can aim to get the best score on that mini game and when you achieve a gold medal a little gold trophy appears next to the mini game on the main screen.

      Trip Customisation - Let me think....oh yes this lets you customise the trips you take! If theres mini games you really like you can make a trip filled with all your favourites and ignore any that you dont like. You can choose from any of the trip destinations and use any of the mini games you like. Me and my other half made up the ultimate trip by putting all the mini games into one trip. Your arms really start to hurt after playing 45 mini games!

      Plaza - Clicking this takes you to another list of options. In the plaza you can customise the clothes on your rabbids and rayman. This is actually quite fun as you unlock clothes as you play the game and some of the costumes they get to wear are quite good! Theres the chance to dress them up as cowboys, pirates, spacemen, that guy from assasins creed and even.... a teenage mutant ninja turtle! Alot of thoughts gone in to this aspect of the game and it does make it much more fun playing the mini games with rabbids in costumes.

      Theres also five shooting games in the plaza. This is very similar to the shooting games that were in the first one but the rabbids are in locations around the world. Personally, I dont like the shooting games very much and although a nice addition to the game I just find it a little annoying as you spend most of your time reloading. This game can only be played with up to two players.

      Also in the plaza there is a jukebox where, if you like how rabbids sing (a little like chipmunks, but not quite so high), you can listen to the songs featured in the music mini games such as satisfaction, smoke on the water and celebration.

      If I havent convinced you so far on this game, I'll give you a taster of a couple of the mini games:

      Dial R for Rabbid - This is one of my favourties. You are a rabbid in the cinema, you want to use your mobile but dont want to get caught. When the lights are off you hold the wii remote up to your ear and a rabbid talks to you through the speaker on the remote (a nice touch with I really like!) then when the manager comes in and turns the lights on you have to then put the wii remote on your lap. When playing normal mode, you then have to repeatedly press the A button to send a text out. Whoever does this quickly enough sends a text to one of the other rabbids, whose phone then vibrates which means they get caught by the manager and punished!

      Burgerinni - You have to deliver burgers from the kitchen to a rabbid sat at a table. Sounds esay enough? Not really.....you have to use the wii remote to balance the burger perfectly whilst moving your rabbid to the table to deliver the food. Other rabbids are trying to do the same thing, which means you end up bumping in to each other and loosing bits of your burger. Also everytime you successfuly deliver a burger and return to the kitchen, you come out with a taller and taller burger each time - it can end up very challenging!

      What I really like about this game is how before each mini game theres the goal of the game and instructions of how to play. Most of the games vary in their controls (with each mini game varying its controls furhter between normal and easy mode) and its nice to have a refresher course before beginning to play, rather than starting and thinking what am I doing!?! Its also handy to have as if anyone new is playing the game they can read the instructions for themselves and so the blame cant be brought back to you when you give them dodgy instructions!

      The instructions are made really easy by the fact theres a little clip of the game to follow the instuctions, which are in a step by step format, and there is also a rabbid showing the actions with the wii remote and, where used, the nunchuck. For those of you with a great memory out the the instructions are also very easy to skip by just pressing a button.

      Raving Rabbids 2 has a complete holiday feel to it, which I love. The music in the game is very catchy and uplifting and really works well to help create a party atmosphere and the chance to create your characters makes you feel more involved with the game. Theres also lots of variety in the mini games and the chance to play them on easy or normal is great as it makes it suitable for everyone - even my grans given it a go! This game can be a quick party game or a game that goes on all night for the true competitors! This isnt a party game for the wii...its THE party game for the wii. I cant rate this game highly enough!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A fun game that your kids will like more than you!

        'The craziest party game you'll ever experience', it says on the back of the box. If you don't mind silly, childish hilarity then you might like this game but be assured your children will probably love it!

        In series II, Rayman works incognito amongst the rabbids who are set to take over planet earth as they travel around the globe studying mankind in order to prepare for a massive invasion.

        This game can be played in three modes: Trips (whereby you can play a series of games in a row in a particular part of the world); Free play (where you can play the game of your choice as long as it has been unlocked (you have to play at least one trip to access this menu)); and the Plaza (where you can customise your character, access the jukebox (where you can play songs that you have unlocked whilst playing the game) and also the arcade Shooting Games menu).

        Up to four players can take part and there is an easy or normal level to choose from.

        The games are quite irreverent (which the kids love and find hugely funny) but it might not appeal to all parents especially if burping and other bodily emissions aren't your bag. I won't list the games here (there being over 50) but it's surfice to say that most involve silliness and occasional grossness and lots of shaking and waving of the Wii remote and/or nunchuck so it will help to keep them fit.

        The games themselves are quite short and quick to play and in comparison the shooting arcade games seem overly long! The fact that you can shoot the Rabbids in the bottom is particularly appealing to my six year old son!

        There is also the option to customise a trip or to create a new trip where you can choose the series of games to play and how the points should be awarded.

        This game is not as good in my opinion as Rabbids I which we bought. This game we borrowed from someone else. I haven't played series III yet but a bit like the movies, the sequel is not as good as the original.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Borrow it don't buy it!

        iahve to say this is my least favourite of the rayman raving rabbids series of games, although it's as good with the humour from the bunnies and the cut scenes, it's just lacking the variety that one and three have within the mini games you play.

        Although the game has been sharpened up a lot in terms of its gameplay since the first one - for example the controls in the music games are a lot more fluid - the types of game you get to play are really repetitive where you just play a different version of each game type in each level. One of the main charms of the first game was the randomness of the games and how you had no idea what was coming next.

        If you don't own any of the Rayman games for Wii I would highly recommend buying either the first or the third over this game just because you are much less likely to get bored with these. Borrow this from a friend or trade in for it but don't pay full whack for it.

        Really good party game that i have had many fun hours playing

        The box said that it was one of the best party games on the Wii, i feel it lived up to that hype. Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 was a fun fun game to play with a small group of people!

        you begin by each choosing a character (which can be unlocked by playing) and then choosing the destination for you game. These include N. America, Europe and Australia, and each has many themed games inside. Examples of these strange games can be:

        In an office, you have to shake your wii remote to make your character dance on his chair, but when the boss comes back you have to stop or you lose points.
        At a restaurant, you have to carry increasingly big burgers without falling over
        On a platform, you are in bumper cars and you have to knock the other players of the platform.

        All these games are strange and unique and provide many moment that make you all laugh.

        I recommend this game to anyone if they have people to play it with; i imagine playing it alone would make you feel rather stupid...

        Disadvantages

        It is silly but a fun sort of silly!

        When I bought a wii for my children for Christmas I got it as a package and this was one of the games that came with it, I watched the girls play on it a few times and just thought it seemed silly, although they loved it and far from the usual arguing over who's turn it was all I would hear was laughter. Anyway one rainy afternoon we all played it together and I won't say I was wrong, it is silly, but we all had a great laugh playing and have done several times since and I have to admit we have also played it with friends after the kids have gone to bed.

        INTRODUCTION - Basically the 'Rabbids' are planning to try and take over our world and Rayman is in disguise and trying to stop them. If you play this game alone you take on the character of Rayman or alternatively you can play with upto 3 other people and you all choose your own character. You can also design your own Rabbid.

        You can play the game in different modes and some games have to be unlocked as you go a long, the games are divided into destinations and you can select each destination to see what games are unlocked in each and if playing in Free play mode then choose to play the unlocked games.

        THE GAMES - There are over 50 unique games and they are all very silly and some even a little bit gross but also very funny and some are very energetic. You can ride a bucking Bronco and in this you have to copy the movements of the wii remote at the bottom of the screen and change to a new action every time it does, there is one where you have to chew up carrots and spit them into a jar and be the first to fill your jar, you can play in a band and there is also one where you watch a clip of a crime and then you have to pick 'who dunnit' from a line up, so all in all a wide range of games, all the games can be played at two different levels of difficult - easy and normal. During your trip you all also unlock different songs which you can select from the Jukebox mode.

        VERDICT - I probably would never have bought this game if it hadn't have been part of a package and my children say they would probably never have chosen it but it is one of their favourites now and despite my initial reaction to the game this really is a great family game and you really can have some fun times playing on it.

          GET IT!

          I don't have a Wii at home, but several of my friends do, and this is the only game that I will ask them to bring over when they bring their Wii. Its amazing fun (but extremly tiring, with all the repeated actions like waving your controller and ninchuk in the air) and its a fantastic ice breaker! No party would be boring with it, whether you are playing the game or watching at the side eagerly awaiting your turn. My favourite game in this was the music band game,not too sure what its called exactly. So you'd pick an instrument according to the level of difficulty that you would like and play away! I liked the burping game as well, it was awfully cute. So you had to shake your controller as if you were shaking a Coke bottle, drink up and BURP!! see how everything in the vicinity gets blown away! Wii wouldn't be the same without Raving Rabbits.

            Only really recommended to fans of the first game.

            === Introduction ===

            Ubisoft's Rayman: Raving Rabbids was one of the launch hits for the Wii; a compilation of minigames that used the Wii-mote in innovative fashion with an accompanying bizarre, if not downright sick at times, sense of humour. The Rabbids are back in this sequel with more mayhem of the same.


            === Gameplay ===

            Essentially, this is a repeat of the earlier formula. There are fifty games, divided up into five continents that you must complete a trip of to unlock for free play. The fifth continent (Tropics) is also locked until you've completed the first four. Most of the games are fairly simple and involve gesturing frantically with the Wii-mote and involve things like downing a fizzy drink and letting off an earth shattering burp or spitting into a cup from the balcony. Yes, the same sense of humour from the first game is still very much in evidence. There are a couple of particular gems; a Star Wars style canyon flying game (naturally it's fart powered) and a game of bumper cars atop a tower block, but most don't really have much replay value.


            At the end of each trip you get to play a music game. You tap along with your Wii-mote and nunchuk to a rhythm, with a bit of waggling here and there for variety. Guitar Hero it is not, and the Rabbid-tinged versions of songs like Smoke On The Water, Satisfaction and Celebration won't necessarily be to everyone's taste, but it sort of works in a fashion similar to a drumming game, or indeed the dancing games in the first Raving Rabbids.


            Rounding out the collection are a set of five on-rails shooters that take you through a series of city scenes filled with an army of invading rabbids in their flying saucers and yellow submarines, armed only with a gun that fires sink plungers, plus the occasional power up. This part of the game is probably the most satisfying in the long run but, again, it's not exactly up to Resident Evil standards.


            === Graphics ===

            The graphics are all in a similar style to the first game with Rayman himself and the rabbids depicted in their own individual cartoon fashion. The only exception is the footage of the cities for the rail shooters which, for the most part, looks realistic. There are ample opportunities for customizing both Rayman and the rabbids as you can unlock a whole set of outfits for them by performing particularly well at some of the games. Much the same goes for the sound effects which are suitably cartoon like; the songs are quite nice, although the silly vocals do detract from them a bit.


            === Controls ===

            For a Wii minigame compilation there are unusually few control issues although you'll need a steady hand on the music games to stop accidentally registering a note twice. It's not exactly the sort of thing that'll get you out of your seat Wii sports style, although there are a few energetic shaking moments to be found. As with the first game, Ubisoft have done a good job in thinking of innovative ways to control with the Wii-mote.


            === Longevity ===

            How much you'll get out of a game like this rather depends on what sort of a gamer you are. If you've got little kids and don't mind exposing them to the sort of humour and cartoon violence on offer here, I'm sure they'll have great fun with it, and it's also a pretty decent party game, although most Wii gamers collections aren't short of those. Hardcore solo gamers will probably play through everything in about half a day and wonder what all the fuss was about.


            === Overall ===

            Ultimately it doesn't really outshine its predecessor; despite a few flashes of brilliance it's mostly just following the same formula rather safely and given how much Wii games have come on in the meantime that doesn't really cut it.

            I can't really recommend this unless you were a big fan of the first game and are happy with more of the same, or see it going very cheaply in a bargain bin.

              great party game

              Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 was the first ever game I played on the Wii and I was instantly addicted. Some people seem to think it's just for kids, but me and my boyfriend and friends have gret fun playing it and we're all in our twenty's!

              The game follows the usual format, where the RR's have taken over Rayman's world. There are a series of mini games, each with a different aim. These include shooting the RR's with plungers, controlling your RR as he balances an increasing stack of pizza's and find the odd RR in the crowd. My favourite however is the music game where you play along with your remote and nunchuck, like guitar hero/wii music but RR style!

              I've never played the original Raving Rabid's so can't compare the two, but RRR 2's graphics are good, the games are addictive and I never seem to get bored of it, even after hours of game play! it can also be played in multi player mode which is great fun for parties!

              Disadvantages

              play in small doses and enjoy

              I don't recall playing the first rayman game but boy can I remember this one and so do my family. This game looks quite simple and fun and enjoyable but it is also very addictive too. I recall that I kept failing certain mini games but could I give up? I kept getting really close and that would make me say 'just one more go', except one more go soon turned into minutes then hours. I am ashamed to say that I was completely addicted to this game and my family never got a look in. This game could be good fun for all the family providing you don't have very competitive members in your family as they will take over. That said, this game can be also very infuriating when the simplest of challenges seem impossible to complete. Buy this game with caution and prepare for a family war.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A fantastic game that will keep you entertained for hours.

              Introduction
              After having tried to take over Raymans world, the Rabbids have now set their sights on ours! using their headquarters in a shopping mall as a base, they are currently traveling all over the world to study our behaviour and prepare a massive invasion. Rayman has infiltrated the Rabbids' base in disguise, hoping to prevent these stupid creatures from carrying out their evil plan.

              Graphics
              the graphics on this game are really good, they are not pix-elated in anyway so the images appeared clean and smooth. You can even customise the Rabbids outfits and choose which character you wish to use at each stage.

              Sound
              The sound on this is just as good as the first rabbids game, everything is clear and really very funny with all the messed up style language they use.

              My Opinion
              I was excited when this new game came out as I had, had so much fun on the first one. I actually find this game better then the first because the first Rabbids restricted you on each level there was only a certain amount of sections you could get to within the game before you could continue if you had not completed them all. Whereas in this game you can go much further easier, so if you get stuck on a particular section there are still lots of possibilities to choose from.
              This game is particularly fun if you are playing multiplayer as it livens up the game play even more and helps keep you on your toes.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              good fun game and doesnt cost a lot.

              I bought this game as one of the first i bought for my new wii and had no idea what to expect as i hadnt seen or played the first but it looked fun.

              The game has severas modes.
              1. Play trips This is then split in to 5 regions of the world and within those you play 3 small games. This wil differ when you play yht e region again basically you will play 5 of a selection of about 10 so each time its slightly different and each region of the world had completely differnt games in them. These games can be anything from hitting the bunnies in the back of the car to keep them quite to playing along with the band and getting the moves right and lots of other fun games in between.

              2. You can customise your own trip by choosing 5 games to play and then naming your trip.

              3. Free play you can just play which every games you want one by one.

              4. Arcade this is is and arcade type game where you have to shoot the rabbids as you move along.

              Good Points
              It gets really good use out of the range of movements with your wii remote and a good mix of remote only and remote with nunchuck. It will gave you jumping around and shouting at the screen. The graffics are cool and the variation of the games keeps you interested and the game is 10 times better with multiplayers.

              Bad points
              Some of the games are too short and dont require you to do a lot but are quite funny.

              Its a really good game to play against others and good fun to pick up and put down when you want too no long story lines to get caught up in.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Brilliant game (multiplayer) that should not be overlooked

                Introduction:

                Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is the sequel to the popular game, Rayman Raving Rabbids. However where this game differs from its prequel is t more focused multiplayer aspect, improved graphics and some brilliant mini games.

                Gameplay

                The mini games are overall, much improved over the original. Like the previous game, it is meant to be played in multiplayer.

                The single player story mode is divided into regions of the world, each with a multitude of mini games. It wont take long to complete and while there are fewer games than the first Rayman Raving Rabbids, the games are of a higher quality.

                The Mutliplayer aspect of this game is vastly improved and much more fun. Unlike the first game, you can now play simultaneously with friends, and expect sleepless nights of fun and laughter.

                Controls

                Like it's predecessor there some games will require only the wiimote, and some will require both the wiimote and nunchuck attachment. In addition the game does pull off inventive use of the wii controllers, be it to play guitar hero style music or shake a soda bottle!


                Graphics

                In one sentence: vastly improved from the original game. Sharper, smoother, more detailed and colourful.

                Sound

                Good use of sound in some mini games. Sound effects are pulled of well.

                Overall a much better game when compared to the original. Expect the same crazy humour, with better graphics and sound.
                If you require a one player game get the first Rayman Raving Rabbids but otherwise Raving Rabbids 2 is what you want.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Good multi player mini game fun

                Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is the sequel to the massively popular game, Rayman Raving Rabbids. Again throwing the user into mini-game mayhem, the game's story has no direct connection to the original other than the characters. The plot basically breaks down too Rayman has discovered the Rabbids are planning to invade earth, he disguises himself as one, travels with them to earth and on 'trips' to the different areas USA, Europe, Asia, South America, and Tropics, where you compete in mini games.

                Completing a trip will unlock these games for multi player or free play mode later, but you will have to complete a trip multiple times as it consists of 5 games, while there are 9 available per area.

                Gameplay

                The mini games are as addictive as ever. I love the FPS level's, and particularly enjoyed running around the american football pitch tackling other players. The story mode wont take long to complete and their are less games than in the original, but this is down to a much bigger focus on multi player. In the first game multi player usually consisted of one player playing and then the other player trying to beat that score, while in RRR2 most games involve both players on screen simultaneously.

                The Shooting Arcade is now the place to go to play all FPS game's, with levels consisting of Rabbids over real life footage of different locations around the world. this is one of my favourite parts of the game.

                Controls

                Like it's predecessor the games come in many different theme's (music, sport, shooting etc) which make use of the wii controller to it's full effect. Be it trying to answer the phone fast or playing a Rock Band/Guitar Hero style level, the controls are easy to use for novice's or experienced gamers. Any bugs from the previous version seem to have been fixed, and I experienced no game's where the controls did not work as they should.

                Graphics

                The display is bright and crisp as you would imagine for a Wii title. The rabbids are well designed and everything just looks a bit sharper than the first game.

                Sound

                The sound isn't a major point of this game, indeed if your playing multi player with your mates you may not even notice it for the sound of laughing, but everything is sharp and well fitting with the usual humour expected of these titles.

                Overall a good game on par with the original. If you want a one player game get the first one, but if you want a game to play with friends at a party or after the pub then this is the one for you.

                The mischievous bunnies are back in a hilarious sequel that is guaranteed to be even crazier and funnier than the first ? and with even more wacky games! They've invaded the world of Rayman, and now the insane Rabbids have a new objective: invade planet Earth! They have established their base at a shopping mall and begun training for their nastiest scheme yet. As part of this training, the Rabbids must carry out several missions around the globe to help them in an attempt to dominate the world. The Rabbids will also try to study human behavior by mimicking everything we do?but in the Rabbid sort of way, with no logic?of course. Back to battle the Rabbids and stop the invasion is Rayman, who will infiltrate the Rabbids by disguising himself as one of them.
