CSM: Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party review


"The first game in the Raving Rabbids series was a hot seller for the Wii because it let players experiment with the unique capabilities of Nintendo's remote and nunchuk controllers. It's been two years, and there are now plenty of games that offer fun, unexpected things to do with these peripherals, but TV Party keeps the Raving Rabbids franchise on the leading edge of innovative motion sensitive interface with minigames that see players using Nintendo's controllers as everything from a motorcycle's handlebars to a flashlight. What's more, TV Party makes use of the Mario Kart Wii steering wheel peripheral as well as the Wii Fit Balance Board (which players can sit on and then lean from side to side to steer a cow down a mountain).

That said, there are also a few too many rehashes. TV Party's music rhythm games, which involve shaking the remote and nunchuk in accordance with on-screen cues, have been seen before in both previous entries in the series. Ditto for the plunger shooting episodes, which place players behind a camera on rails and have them point the remote at the screen to target stray rabbids wandering about movie sets. It's fun stuff, just not quite as compelling as it once was."
