The transformation of Rayman from a strange and mildly unsettling French kiddy game icon that most gamers outside of France never really got (even 'ver kids) into a quality and surprisingly daft flagship party game for Nintendo's Wii continues unabated.
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is not a solitary pleasure. This is not to say you can't play the game alone, there's a significant single player element to the game called 'Trip Mode' - with some barking mad storyline based around the rabbids being in training to invade planet Earth or somesuch madcap scheme.
It's kind of like playing WarioWare Smooth Moves or Wii Sports Tennis on your own, which are perfectly pleasant and acceptable ways to pass the time - as long as the neighbours don't catch you through the back window. But once you've had a taste of playing 'proper' Wii games (such as this is) against a real, live breathing human opponent, it's hard to go back.
So, the focus here is heavily on multiplayer fun. A large portion of that helping of fun comes from laughing at the faces and actions of your competitors as they contort themselves around the Wii Remote and Nunchuck in order to make the rabbids perform some genuinely hilarious on-screen tasks in one of the sixty mini-games on offer.
Players will perform various crazy actions with the Wii control system as they do battle in games such as 'Beer', 'Rodeo', 'Baseball' and 'Burger'.
Earth needs you!
