Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time| Review

Synopsis: The Rabbids are back and this time they trying to change history as we know it, luckily our friends at Ubisoft have provided us with a review copy of this Wii exclusive to play the mini games with friends. In the fourth title of the series, Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time, you will wreak havoc on a poor unsuspecting history museum with 20 new mini games played with up to four friends, 30 costumes for your Rabbid, and for the first time players are able to join others online and share scores and trophies. Get ready to break out the remote and nunchuks, and get this…Travel in Time even has mini games specifically for the motion plus, now on with the review.

Praise: I need to start by saying this is my first Rabbids game that I have played but am a fan of the party games, both good and some bad as they are mostly played in small amounts with the wife and kid. The game begins with an amusing cutscene, and then you create a new game by entering the bathroom and exiting into a museum with toilet paper stuck to your foot, funny right? Well the humor does continue throughout the mini games, from collecting beans to flying, my personal favorite, and even dancing. The graphics look great and there is a lot of replay value to be had, even when you don’t have anyone around to play with, the computer plays as the opponent. Another strong feature that this title totes is that it is one of the few games that support the motion plus accessory, and it works great!

Gripes: I wish more of the games within this party title focused on the motion plus, as there were times in which I was fighting with the controller to detect my movement. A small issue I had is that I always felt I was missing something in the museum as it is pretty large with the number of rooms, I constantly felt that certain mini games were being overlooked, but with enough time and exploration, I think I found the majority of the games and costumes, hopefully. Lastly, for a multiplayer party game, navigating the history museum is done by the first player and once your find the game you want to play, then the other players are able to join in the fun.

Overall, Travel in Time is a laugh out loud good time whether playing by yourself against the CPU or with friends. The real replay value shines when you have a group of people to play with, just make sure you have as many nunchuks as you do remotes. This title is targeted to the casual gamer, but hardcore players can enjoy as well when it comes to having some time to kill and looking to have some fun and good laughs. There is a lot to explore and unlock, so get your Rabbid to the museum and be ready to change history as you know it! gives Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time an 8 out of 10.

Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time is available now for the Nintendo Wii.
