    Rabbids: Alive & Kicking is definitely a unique approach to playing around with those mischievous critters. Much of the insanity and charm is back along with some new physical gameplay that might prove a bit too much for those, like myself, who come unprepared.

    With around 40 mini-games included Raving Rabbids: Alive & Kicking, the biggest highlight of this game is how well some of these games work, especially with the Kinect controller which has copped some flack over the last year.

    A great party game, that'll keep a party going with its variety of nutty mini-games. As with any Kinect game, it has its foibles, but get some friends around and you'll have a blast. The only downside is an issue of longevity, as once you've exhausted the mini-games, you're unlikely to go back.

    If you have kids, or entertain guests on a regular basis, then Rabbids: Alive & Kicking is well worth picking up, just not one for the single player.

    The ability to jump into the game without much introduction though is certainly appealing.

    Maybe we expected something more after the Wii games and thanks to the use of Kinect. Some of the minigames are great, but we feel we had already seen others. Anyway, it is a fun game with a lot of content that will be enjoyed by everyone.

    Overall, Rabbids: Alive & Kicking is a good compilation of mini-games, though it's hard to recommend a purchase, especially at full price. The title could have done with more single player based content; however, it's a great game for a family who are looking for some light-hearted entertainment.

    Rabbids: Alive and Kicking is a collection of party games that's worth picking up if you plan on playing with others, but if not, only hardcore Rabbids fans need apply.

    If you have kids or a bunch of friends that get together for gaming nights, it's a decent party game that should entertain and embarrass. If you'll mostly be playing alone, it's not nearly as fun and gives little motivation to keep on playing after you've tried each game.

    Not something you're likely to get your money's worth from. [Issue#79, p.89]

    It's a party game, so save it for a party. [Christmas 2011, p.123]

    Just a collection of minigames, some entertaining, but not all of them. Not really a good bargain.

    In Alive and Kicking you can find only few interesting minigames, but they don't fail in entertaining the family.

    Features more highlights than low points, which makes it a worthy mini-game compilation for those looking to party with Kinect.

    Most disappointing is that unlike previous Rabbids games, most of the mini-games just aren't fun without multiple players. And even with them, bland activities aren't always enjoyable. With no basic story to hold everything together, anyone besides Rabbids fans will have no motivation to keep going.

    Although some may have fun with Rabbids: Alive and Kicking, the overall package is far from optimal. When your load times last longer then your mini games that poses a major issue. If you were looking at buying this game because you enjoyed the Rabbids games that are on the Wii, Alive and Kicking kicking doesn't live up to the bar set out before it.

    A party game that has many flaws and gets repetitive quickly. On the other hand, if you have some company in your living room, youʼll definitely going to have some laughs.

    The long loading times, clumsy controls and bland presentation make Rabbids: Alive and Kicking a disappointment of old Rabbids fans. However, the minigames are fun and the four-player modes help a lot. If you're looking for a Kinect game that doesn't involve fitness or dancing this may be worth your while.

    The Rabbids games have always been about silly, disposable fun, and Alive & Kicking at least delivers on two of those fronts. This installment includes the additional challenges of long load times, poor controls, and a palpable sense of déjà vu. These might not be deal-breakers for everyone, but at this point I'm ready to let the Rabbids rage by themselves.

    Another shabby Kinect mini-games compilation, this time with those pesky rabbits.
