Raving Rabbids Travel in Time :: Wii Game Review
The Rabbids are back and are causing destruction and mayhem throughout history! As the latest game in the great Raving Rabbids series, you could do a lot worse in a mini-game collection.
Historically speaking, the Raving Rabbids series have been pretty good. They were notable among the first few games that came out with the Wii and continues to be funny and cute.
Mini-Games Multiplying like Bunnies
Raving Rabbids Travel in Time is nothing but a mini-game collection. Everything is set inside a museum with different areas to explore. A long tutorial will take you through the museum and show you all the places.
Moving around differs between areas. In the Flyarium, you fly a plane; in the Shootarium, you fling your Rabbid around; and in the Bouncearium, you bounce. There are a lot of things to explore in the museum. Some things will take you to an actual mini-game while other objects might start up a mini-mini-game within the museum itself, such as hunting down gems to smash.
The mini-games themselves will take you to places like Italy, Ancient Egypt, and Medieval England. There are lots of funny cut-scenes to watch as the Rabbids travel in their washing machine time machine, but there is no real story tying everything together. It's just plain old wacky mayhem.
Worth Raving About?
Obviously, for a party game, there is multiplayer. Navigating around the museum with a bunch of Rabbids tied together with toilet paper is chaotic, you will need to have good communication. There is also online play, but it can be hard to find people who want to play the same games as you.
The mini-games are decent and motion control detection is rarely a problem. There is WiiMotionPlus support in the game, but you only absolutely need it for the Hookarium. For the most part, the mini-games are fun, but not super fun. There is a lot of copying from games like Mario Kart, Guitar Hero, and even Tetris. Winning games will allow you to "change the course of history," but even if you lose you will still unlock things like extra costumes for the Rabbids. Overall, Raving Rabbids Travel in Time is a great addition to a great series.
