For the first year or so of the Wii's existence, the system has been known for its intuitive minigame collections more than any serious games. Of course, that's not to say that several of the minigame collections aren't a blast to play. Such is the case with this game: Rayman Raving Rabbids.

Believe it or not, this wacky minigame collection does have a plot. Not much of one, but a plot nonetheless. Our hero Rayman has been captured by strange rabbitlike creatures called Rabbids and forced to play a bunch of wacky minigames in order to escape. Why has he been captured? What do the rabbids intend to do? Don't expect many answers. Chances are they just wanted some entertainment.

Each "round" consists of five minigames, each one played with either the Wii remote by itself or with the nunchuck attachment. Once four of the five games are beaten, you are rewarded with a plunger. Once you've collected enough plungers, you're able to escape to freedom.

The minigames vary, from shaking the remote to run to keeping in beat with music (my personal favorite). Many of the games are hit and miss, but the real fun isn't story mode, but rather, playing the game with your friends. After each round is beaten, you unlock all of the minigames in said round to play with your friends.

Unfortunately, the minigames do get old after a while. I certainly don't think the game has quite enough substance to warrant the 50 dollar price tag, but if you can find it in a bargain bin like I did and are in the mood to play some fun minigames, check this game out.
