Wii: Rayman Raving Rabbids
Well I used my gift card to pick up Rayman Raving Rabbids and I am happy with my purchase. When I went into the store I did not see this game and I almost purchased WarioWare instead. While I was at the checkout I noticed an "overstock bookcase" and on it was the last copy of Rayman Raving Rabbids. I looked it over and decided it would be a better game for me than WarioWare.
This game, like WarioWare, is a collection of mini-games. There is a "Story" mode but it's nothing more than 4 mini-games and a boss challenge. As long as you can win 3 of the 4 mini-games you can take on the boss challenge. So far the boss challenge has been a rail shooter.
The thing is, this game is so bizarre that it is fun. It also uses the wii-mote and nunchuk in very interesting ways.
In the cow throwing game, yes there is a game where you throw a cow, you swing the wii-mote as hard as you can around your head so that you can throw a cow at least 60 feet. I just about threw my arm out playing this one but I managed to throw that beast a good 99.65 feet!
The dance beat games are fun. You have to move the nunchuk and wii-mote to the beat of the music. Do it well enough and you win.
The rail shooter involves you shooting plungers at rabbids. Yes, rabbids! It is a blast and you can play it as a co-op or competitive game. There is just something hilarious about these yelling and screaming rabbids all over the place dressed up in funny costumes.
I'll tell you right now that this game has no real plot. It is just a collection of mini-games... but they are fun mini-games!
Story mode is single player but, once you complete a "level" the games become unlocked for group play.
