One of the most popular parts of the Rayman universe has been the Rabbids. These fluffy, crazy-eyed creatures were originally part of a few mini-games in the Rayman series, and have now gotten their very own spin-off.
In this game, the Rabbids want to go home, and have decided that the moon must be where they once lived. Their fool-proof plan is to stack a whole bunch of stuff in an enormous bridge tall enough to reach the moon. When the stack is complete, they will climb it in order to reach the moon and take a nice, long nap.
You control two rabbids, one is pushing a shopping cart, and the other loading it up. The goal is to collect as much stuff as possible. Collectable stuff is shown with a white circle, and all you have to do is roll over it to collect it. If Rayman could be combined with Lair of a Clockwork God, you might get Rabbids Go Home.
Slow beginning, challenging ending
The initial levels of the game are easy. Humans are relatively passive, and collecting items is no harder than controlling a race car in a racing simulation. As the game progresses however, things get a lot more fun.
The humans in the game, angry at having their clothes torn off for the Greater Good, are now actively attacking the Rabbids. Instead of merely racing around collecting goods, the two rabbids must now dodge bombs, attack dogs, and kung fu artists. The game also makes it harder to collect enough stuff as the game goes on, which means you really have to work to send those underwear clad humans packing.
Surprisingly fun side feature
Another fun feature the game includes is the Character Creator. This isn’t part of the main game itself, but it’s very fun to play with. The character creator lets you color the rabbids, squash them into different shapes, rearrange their eyes and ears, and other changes. The character creator is flexible enough to allow you to make the rabbids look like entirely different things, such as the Pokemon character, Pikachu, or famous people.
Hilarious cut scenes
When you’ve completed a section of the game, you’re often rewarded with hilarious cut scenes that really bring out the personality of these ridiculous creatures. These can be triggered by picking up specific items such as radios or toys. These cut scenes illustrate their naivity, and can be cute or funny, depending on what they have found.
This game is light hearted and fun. If you prefer more serious games you may find the repetition of trolling around in a shopping cart repetitive, but Ubisoft does a pretty good job of breaking up the monotony with mini-games and cut scenes.
Once part of a mini game themselves, the rabbids have proven they are good enough for their own feature as well. If you love comedy, and need a break from serious games, this is the right game for you.
