  1. Admittedly, I may be partially swayed by the HD graphics, a pair of new mini-games, and lightning-fast load times, but even though the game remains the same I found the localized familiarity of my 360 buttons slightly more appealing than the Wiimote and Nunchuk. [May 2007, p.65]
  2. In its defense, the 360 version does include support for the 360 camera – but I had a hard time getting my motions to track with enough precision to make the process fun.
  3. An excellent addition to any party game collection, and fans of the genre will find tons of stuff to do. They will also get a kick out of the variety of mini-games and the copious amounts of humor. Multiplayer mode is there but a little weak, and the lack of Xbox Live support for even an online scoreboard seems like an odd move.
  4. A fun yet very different Rayman game and in my opinion it’s hit and miss as to whether fans of previous games will enjoy this due to its departure from what is expected. A real Marmite game, you’ll either love or hate it.
  5. In all, Raving Rabbids is a decent game at least worth a rental.
  6. At 35 quid this is pretty good value for money - even if it does star the worst character in videogames. [July 2007, p.97]
  7. Tired, completely lacking in variety and without any substatial replay value to speak of, Rayman Raving Rabbid breaks all three golden rules of the successful party game. [Issue#20, p.88]

    Fun to the xtreme. Seriously, tons of fun and a "silly" good time. Couldn't put it down.

    I never even knew this was on the Wii until now, but I really enjoyed my time with the game. I had no problems with the controls and had a good time playing it. Really fun and funny. Expand

    I've tried so hard to like this game. There are some fun mini games, but the control for the most part is too easy. Then as you process, the games get ridiculously hard. More frustrating that fun. Expand

    Wonderful to look at, dull as dishwater to play. Fun for the first hour, then horribly repetetive. And fundamentally crippled by the horrendously long load times between each minigame. Expand

    The Wii version is vastly superior. The controls are so much better on the wii. You can't compare the two.

    In all fairness, I didn't play the game with the Live camera which may have made it more fun, but, this was the most boring game I've played for a long time. Really repetitive with no real rewards. I gave up after only a few hours. Collapse
