    It's a giggle. [Issue#17, p.93]
  2. Though the just-released Mario Party DS bests it with double the games, Wi-Fi support, and more robust single-card play, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 succeeds with style, pizzazz, and humor unlike that seen in most handheld versions of console favorites.

    It's good to have a better Rayman Raving Rabbids installment on DS than the one released last year, but we have a feeling that Ubisoft could have done much more on a handheld system that offers many great examples of mini-game collections.
  4. Brutally insane bunnies can be fun, but there aren't enough minigames to keep those in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 interesting for long.

    Rayman's Raving Rabbids 2 is a game with a sense of humour and a lot of customisation, with plenty to unlock to customise your Rabbid throughout the Adventure and Score modes, but the lack of variety and low difficulty in the mini-games will fail to satisfy most players in their teens and above.
  6. Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 tries to seduce you with its quirky 3D visuals, but at its core this is just a bare-bones mini-game collection that can only sustain the briefest of relationships.
  7. 50
    Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 has a few pretty good minigames, a lot of mediocre ones, and a couple terrible ones. Add on to that a forced repetition system and a story that is insultingly glossed over and the title resembles something that the Rabbids themselves may have developed.
  8. It's one of those titles where the more you play, the less fun you have.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Few minigames, unfinished storyline, mediocre graphics and horrendous sound make from Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 the biggest dissapointment in the series. Full Review »

    Well, it was short, and there wasn't much of a plot. Designing a rabbid was easier said then done as well. In the design mode, theWell, it was short, and there wasn't much of a plot. Designing a rabbid was easier said then done as well. In the design mode, the bunny appears differently on the bottom screen than it does on the top screen. And the rabbid appears differently in the game. So they are three separate things. Plus, when the rabbid appears in the game, some of my paint colour would sometimes appear all over the rabbids face, when it doesn't on any other occassion. And on top of that, I could only put hair on the front of its head. Which is a shame, because I bought this game, so that I could design a rabbid. But other than that, this game was great. I didn't like some of the minigames, but I really enjoyed others. Especially spitting in a rabbid's drink, or chatting on cell phones in the movie theatre. And the graphics were great. The rock band type minigame at the end of every section, saved this game in my mind. I actually prefer their version of celebration. That is what makes this game a game. Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 has its flaws, but hopefully they will be fixed for the next installment. I mean the first game was an average side scroller aside from the weirdness. This game was an average minigame collection aside from the weirdness. Maybe they can combine both ideas, and improve the ability to design rabbids, in order to make an excellent third installment.

    I'm a diehard guitar hero fan so when i played the RRR2 rock-band i was totally hooked. and that's one out of like 60 mini-games! I'm a diehard guitar hero fan so when i played the RRR2 rock-band i was totally hooked. and that's one out of like 60 mini-games! this one has a bunch of songs, you can be one of the four different players (generally drums, singer, guitar and bass i think), and hearing the singer (a rabbid, bunny sort of alien rabbit thing), you can't keep yourself from laughing. they sped up the vocals or something so that he sounds like a chipmunk! best game in the world to play with friends.. at least rent it, but it'd probably be better to just buy it to have it around for when you and friends need something really FUN to do.
