    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    For their first 360 game, the raving rabbids deliver a mixed experience. The augmented reality enabling the rabbids to spawn in your living-room is fun, but lacks precision. The main issue resides within the fact that those levels do not constitue the majority of the game, more classic ones are, and they lack originality and rythm. The animated styled mini-games are funny, but we've already seen much better with a wiimote in hand in Wario Ware.

    Rabbids: Alive & Kicking does exactly what it was intended to do, and that is to mix up a large batch of zany fun for you and your family to enjoy.

    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.

    More silly minigames, some of which are quite good and all of which are quite funny. [Christmas 2011, p.90]

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

    Rabbids: Alive & Kicking doesn't capture the boundless energy and kooky personality that sometimes makes them so endearing. You should look elsewhere if you want to get a real kick out of the rabbids.

    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.

    A Kinect party game with good motion sensing as its strength – hard to believe, but Rabbids Alive & Kicking feels that way. The graphic are a mixed bag, the sound feels a bit weak, but you'll generally understand why you didn't manage to really whack that Rabbid. If dancing isn't your thing and Dance Central 2 is out, likely the best party game for Kinect – if you can find the right minigames for your crowd.

    Falls victim to the same problems the Kinect's worst games suffered from a year ago. Imprecise controls ruin the uncomplicated games. It started out unfulfilling and didn't get much better. It's the kind of mindless thing I'd load up on my phone for five minute bursts. At home I'd rather be doing anything else.

    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.

    Thank goodness Rayman is back because his would-be usurpers have never seemed more inanely un-entertaining than in this vapid mini-game collection.

    One of the best party games for Kinect, thanks to a very good variety of activities, up to 16 players support, and enteraining use of alternate reality and perfect movement recognition; the Rabbids' scoffing comedy pervading the entire game is just the icing on top.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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 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.

    Raving Rabbids Alive & Kicking is truly the best party game you can get for Kinect. With forty different mini-games, you will keep on playing with your friends. Unfortunately there are some crappy games, but the fun ones have the majority.
