  1. If you love the Rabbids or just want a great game for your Wii, don't hesitate and take the Rabbids home.
  2. The Rabbids can pull off a fully fledged game without Rayman's assistance. This is witty, charming and, above all, incredible fun.

    Finally they have their own adventure and Ubisoft has managed to deliver. Rabbids Go Home showcase the rabbids to the fullest. They remain stupid and the local population will get to know them for that. If they ever reach the moon? Buy the game and find out. All I can say is that they are darn resilient.
  4. Games Master UK
    Witty, energetic and hugely entertaining, even if it isn't particularly smart. [Winter 2009, p.72]

    Rabbids Go Home is not a Raving Rabbids sequel, but an altogether different experience -- one far more inspired and ambitious. This title at times feels like an action romp and at times a platformer on wheels, but regardless of the scenario, you'll be having fun and smiling if not laughing.
  6. 85
    If you have any inkling to play this game, you are likely to be caught in its zany madness and love it the more you play it.
  7. Overall, though, Rabbids Go Home is a fun, often hilarious reboot of a franchise that desperately needed one.
  8. In a nutshell, Rabbids Go Home is an incredibly entertaining game that's almost sure to please ... if you can get past its repetitive nature.
  9. Rabbids Go Home is a pretty fat package, with loads of cool extras. The Rabbids channel is an inspired addition, and the level play of the main game is rock solid throughout.
  10. It's an absolute hoot but if you're after a meaty challenge, you definitely won't find it here.
  11. The flesh of Nintendo’s little white box is willing; this game provides some spirit to match.
  12. Rabbids Go Home is addictive and insanely funny in its own, unique way. Despite the fact the game tends to repeat itself after a certain time, it offers enough clever moments to stay entertaining.
  13. A surprisingly fun romp from start to finish, Rabbids Go Home is a unique experience that takes what is usually the tedious task of collecting, and makes it entirely fun. If you own a Wii and love to laugh, you’ll definitely want to give these wacky Rabbids a shot.
  14. Rabbids go Home is a simple, yet original and very enjoyable action game, full of moments that are gonna make you laugh out loud. In short terms, it's a lot of fun.
  15. Rabbids Go Home is a strong recovery for the Rabbids franchise, shying away from the mini game conglomerations we've been accustomed to and bringing an entirely new adventure to the table featuring these misunderstood creatures.
  16. Pelit (Finland)
    An easy, pretty and fun platform adventure, which throws some elements from skateboarding games and Katamari Damacy into the mix. [Jan 2010]
  17. The whole adventure is bonkers from start to finish, and it's all the better for it. Rabbids Go Home won't be held up alongside true genre classics, but it's one of the best Wii games released this year and is sure to put a smile on your face.
  18. A pretty shallow experience, and I'm uncertain if the novelty of the formula can support the weight of annualized sequels. But these facts do nothing to diminish the fact that I spent nearly the entire eight-or-so hours with the game wearing a stupid grin on my face, probably looking something like the Rabbids on my screen.
  19. 80
    Years ago we wondered if the Rabbids concept would stall, but these rabbits are back as savage as ever.
  20. Not everyone is going to enjoy this. Some people will never warm to Ubisoft's anarchic little fiends, many will find the constant enthusiasm draining. This isn't a purchase for hardcore enthusiasts or steely battlefield veterans with a thousand-yard stare and a pico-second response time. The rest of you, should you be able to engage your inner child, could well find a big old slice of the fun pie cooling on your windowsill.
  21. Rabbids Go Home is an extremely entertaining and funny game – the Rabbids’ attitude and anarchic humour paper over a lot of the repetition and minor faults that pepper the game. The two player mode is passable but Rabbids Go Home excels as an all-out single player game, full of unexpected wit and a relentlessly fun atmosphere, and one you’ll love if you’re after a pick-up-and-play game to cheer up these dark Winter nights.
  22. Rabbids Go Home is an excellent mixture of madness, fun and irreverence. Let the Rabbids come in and enjoy their crazy humor: this one is absolutely the best title of the series!
  23. 80
    Rabbids Go Home is a humorous adventure that demonstrates the Rabbids are capable of staring in something other than a mini-game compilation. The game is full of wacky scenarios, has a visually appealing art direction and is just plain good fun.
  24. The humor and ever changing gameplay provides a rip-roaring experience that you’ll be hard pressed to find in another game. Remember games are supposed to be fun and Rabbids Go Home is a fun-filled experience that shouldn’t be missed regardless of the score.
  25. 80
    Even with the game's strength is its unusual and original tone, players can rest assured that this game is just as accessible as it is odd. Featuring an overdose of quirky charm and a wide range of fun-filled gameplay, gamers who aren't used to playing titles outside of the norm will be remiss if they don't give Rabbids Go Home a chance.
  26. Half platform, half racing game, with a bit of BWAAAAAAH!
  27. A crazy adventure filled with humor, charm and entertaining gameplay elements when the rabbit’s tries to reach the moon in a shopping cart.
  28. The end result delivers a heart-warming and worthwhile experience that's unique, fast-paced, and provides endless laughs.
  29. 78
    Rabbids go Home is a very nice game which unfortunately scores bad on the graphics. Still Rabbids go Home is fun to play thanks to the nice gameplay and the overload of humour.
  30. For the first time since the original, Ubisoft has been able to recapture what made this new, strange series so popular: inanity, and boatloads of it. The newest title is undoubtedly the best, and despite some faults, Rabbids Go Home is a success, and easily one of the best 3D platformer to hit the Wii since de Blob.
  31. Rabbids Go Home is a fun alternative to everything else currently on the Wii and if you enjoy a little comedy in your adventures you should definitely check out Rabbids Go Home.
  32. The Rabbids have their own game, a funny and smiling adventure.
  33. Rabbids Go Home, though at times repetitive, is a fun game with laugh-out-loud animations. Any game with Rabbids in fisticuffs over a pouch of Capri Sun is okay in my book.
  34. Laughs and more laughs with the new adventure of crazy rabbits of Rayman. He isn't new but the Rabbids are the perfect protagonists of a great adventure with lots of exploration, humor and simplicity to manage. Ubisoft has done its work very well in almost all aspects of the game, only it has missed making a product less repetitive and more difficult.
  35. Rabbids Go Home is extremely enjoyable mostly thanks to its incredible sense of humour. It is also quite varied, offering many different gameplay situations. Graphically convincing, it’s definitely worth giving it a go!
  36. Although Rabbids Go Home may be simple and repetitious, the game's efficient and responsive play control, comedic subject matter, and eternally likable protagonists will keep players coming back for more.
  37. 75
    Everything from the soundtrack (which features licensed tracks like "Somebody to Love" and "Me and Mrs. Jones") to the customization features to the virtual pet-style Rabbid-inside-your-Wii Remote bonus mode adds enough personality to the relatively simple platforming to make this worth playing.
  38. As it stands, I think it makes for a great rental, or maybe a discount pick-up in the future, but it's not something that Wii owners could do without.
  39. 74
    Despite their continued lack of charm the Wii version of Rabbids Go Home is by far the fluffy maniac's best game.
  40. The Rabbids' first proper game is a huge improvement on the earlier mini-game collections.
  41. This slow-starting platformer is simple at times but builds up to a goofy good time.
  42. "The rabbits can do much more than just play silly games, as Rabbids Go Home proves. Still, the creators didn't manage to create a challenging adventure game, because the game is too repetitive and easy. What remains is a good looking game that will make you laugh more then once, but never really becomes great.
  43. We can say that this franchise of games with rabbits hasn’t stagnated in terms of concept. On the contrary, makes us recall to its initial roots, but with a new adventure so much fun where the laughter is uncontrollable.
  44. 40 minigames bring a lot of fun – even for beginners. A funny adventure for everybody who buys this game!
  45. Nintendo Power
    Difficulty issues aside, this is a definite step in the right direction for the Rabbids, and I hope to see them continue this way. [Holiday 2009, p.88]
  46. It's a shame that the game's too short, although it's quite good while it lasts.
  47. games(TM)
    It's a wholly entertaining romp filled with non-stop nonsense and inspired moments that set it apart from almost every other Wii game. [Christmas 2009, p.120]
  48. The lack of multiplayer and the agonizing repetition still unfortunately knock this game a notch below its predecessors, but a few fantastic adventures toward the end await those who can pull through.
  49. Repetition aside, Rabbids Go Home is still a worthy title just short of becoming a Wii classic.
  50. The Rabbids are certainly the most endearing characters we've seen in recent years, but their offbeat charm isn't enough to carry this unoriginal and rather stale action-platform title. If this is the future of the Rabbids then they should most definitely go home and stay there.

    Too repetitive. Unless it gets better towards the end it's not worth buying. The previous Rabbids are more fun.
