  1. Great game from Ubisoft, not only for kids but people of all ages can seriously enjoy this game!
  2. Rabbids is still the best minigame compilation in town, hands down. If you liked the previous versions even a little, you definitely need to pick this one up. Just be warned, the game really shines with the balance board, so if you don’t have one, borrow one. You’ll see what I mean.
  3. 80
    While TV Party doesn’t have the most amazing or original selection of mini-games, the inherent charm of the Rabbids make it unique and hilarious.
  4. Whether it’s the TV parodies or inventive balance board support, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party is a fresh successor to the original. Yes, Wii mini-game collections have been done to death, but TV Party does it right, and does it differently.
  5. The dancing game has that perfect mix of embarrassment and fun that makes it just as entertaining to watch as it is to play.
  6. 67
    You probably won't put too much alone time into the game, but TV Party's an enjoyable pick-up-and-play option if you can get few friends or family members on board.

    With its third installment in three years, the Raving Rabbids series is quickly growing stale. [Holiday 2008, p.86]

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Rayman Raving Rabbids franchise returns with funnier, better and over the top parody of mani games based on television in life. With parody mani games such as Star Wars, Godzilla, jackass, and others. However I complain about some dancing mini games are becoming harder learning bad moves and stuff to learn. I do love some music band mini games each with real songs from ladies night to open book. My favorite mini games is that there are shooting mini games that takes place in real life movies, feeling like I was in the movie. That's all the explanation I say about this games. Expand

There is alot more better minigames compared to it'sRayman Raving Rabbids TV Party is a minigame collection featuring 50 minigames. There is alot more better minigames compared to it's disappointing sequel but I still think that Rabbids 1 had a better line up than this game in my opinion. A lot of minigames are themed on hilarious spoofs of movies and tv shows like Godzilla, Pimp my ride, WWE, and many more with minigames are categorized in channels like the X Trm TV which has many minigames on extreme sports, Groove On is based on a rhythm game sort of like Guitar Hero that features songs like Kool and the Gang's Ladies Night and Queen's Another one bites the dust, Raving Channel which features minigames based on talk shows, cooking and late night sitcoms. and Cult Movies has minigames based on movie parodies like Star Wars. These minigames are pretty accessible to many age groups without being too simple unlike Rabbids 2 and have a sort of arcade mentality where the minigames are easy to learn but takes a bit to master. But my biggest gripe about these minigames is that this game lacks variety, all channels have 3 to 5 minigames of the same game play style in a single channel like Monster Tractors has 3 tracks and Mega Balls has 4 different levels, it doesn't take away the fun too much though. Rabbids TV Party is also a better game for a party in general, Rabbids 1's multiplayer was just there, Rabbids 2's multiplayer felt more fun than the first game but Rabbids TV Party adds a whopping 8 players to share with 4 Wii motes and nunchucks and new Party Mode where players compete with the most points with a set amount of rules like how many minigames you want to play in a single session or how long you want the fun to last, on top of that, you have scoring options for this mode too, which has normal (player in first gets points), raving (everyone gets points except second place), and yard sale (everyone gets points). Though the visuals need some work, they look slightly above average but they have a very colorful, cartoon art style but the animations do look good and so does the modeling but the environments don't look impressive, nor does the lighting the but at least it looks passable for a Wii game. The controls work and are used in creative ways like using the Wii mote and Nunckuck like an inter-tube and using a Wii mote like a propeller and flying into the sky on a vacuum and they do work but they are a might janky at times, such as trying to do some dance moves in the Skake it TV minigames where some moves feel like they don't work or feel inconsistent and trying to draw some angles with the Wii mote in the minigames Rabbidass and Star Worse don't register sometimes even when I draw an angle correctly, though these problems don't happen too often but when they do it kind of bothers me. The lasting appeal is strong here but not super, there is a Solo Mode where you take over Rayman's TV that lasts for an average of 2 hours but longer if your trying to 100% by getting the top scores and gifts hidden in some minigames that have accessories to use in the Pimp my Rabbid minigame and there's also a great multiplayer mode to boot with up to 7 friends and play as many minigames as you wish. There is a World Contest mode where you can submit a Rabbid for a weekly theme in the Pimp my Rabbid minigame and you can vote on other's Rabbids to see who could win the week but this mode doesn't work after May of 2014 since Nintendo pulled the plug on the Wii and DS' online servers so some content isn't working anymore. To simplify it, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party is a better sequel than Rabbids 2 and maybe a better game than Rabbids 1 with some good minigames that will entertain you when your either by yourself or with some friends and the best multiplayer mode in the entire series. The visuals are kind of above average but they get the job done and aren't super ugly per say. The controls are fine and they work but sometimes don't function at points. The lasting appeal is there but there isn't too much note worthy other than the Solo Mode and Party Mode. Game play: 9/10 Graphics: 6/10 Controls: 8/10 Lasting Appeal: 7/10 Overall:8/10 Expand

    Silly game developers, rabbids are for kids! Rabbids are about potty jokes and simple physical humor. This game repeats the mini-games fromSilly game developers, rabbids are for kids! Rabbids are about potty jokes and simple physical humor. This game repeats the mini-games from other rabbid titles, wrapped in a framing device of watching TV all day. But the kids young enough to enjoy the humor barely understand what broadcast TV was, and certainly won't get all the adult in-jokes.

    For example, a frequent mini-game involves a movie studio where they're filming an old late-night movie, such as Night of the Living Dead, or Red Planet. (I'm 41, and those movies were way before my time.) While they're filming the movie, actors from other movies wander through the set and spoil the shot. Your job is to shoot the invading actors and prevent the movie from being ruined. It's all very clever in an abstract intellectual way, but it's a terrible mismatch with the simple physical humor of the Rabbids.

    My son is 10, and he loved all the other Rabbid games. I'm 41, and many of the jokes left me scratching my head. We turned it off after an hour.

    If you're over 50 and still have the sense of humor of a grade-schooler, then you might enjoy this. Otherwise stay away. The humor is too lowbrow for most adults, and the jokes are too archaic for kids. It's sad because somebody obviously put a lot of work into this. But the concept is self-contradictory.

    And don't be fooled by the positive user reviews. They reek of spam.
