Game Review ( Rayman Raving Rabbids - 360 )

Graphics: 3/5 Sharper, but not much better than the Wii version. The game also has some frequent loading times. Before and after everything you do, the game loads. Not for a long time, only for about 10 seconds, but it gets annoying after awhile. The game makes up for it somewhat by giving you a smooth running game.

Sound: 3.25/5 Same sound as the Wii verison, liked it there, you'd like it here. There are still the same music tracks, ( some good, some bad ) and the same annoying Rabbids screaming until you want to hang yourself.

Control: 3.75/5 Mixed bag. While the minigame where you play as Rayman on a dragon picking up pigs controls a billion times better than it did on the Wii, the main "boss" battles are absolutely annoying. The crosshairs move kind of funky-like, and it's very repetetive.

Fun: 3/5 Rayman Raving Rabbids, overall, is a completely pointless port from the Wii version. You can use your Xbox Live Vision Camera for this game, but all that would only make this a crappy new Eyetoy game. The game is just useless, unless you're an achievement whore. If you are just that, you will get at least 400 points out of this game, if you dare to play the entire repetetive story mode. After every four mini-games, ( One of which is always a press-to-the-beat-of-the-song type game ) you go into a door where you just end up using plungers to shoot at the Rabbids - just about every single time. These minigames aren't very gun, and they can take between 5 and 10 minutes. This may not seem long, but it sure does when you're playing it. Basically, this game is only for hardcore Rayman fans ( I don't know if I've ever heard of such a thing ) or achievement whores. ( Like me )


Achievement Difficulty: 5/10 The achievements are easy to get, since the minigames are so simple, but some of them would take some times outside of the story mode. However, you'll still be able to quite easily get 400 MSP. That is, if you're willing to play the whole story mode.
