Travel in Time with Raving Rabbids and snag a copy for yourself


Last Christmas, our friends gave us a Raving Rabbids game for the Wii and I eyed it suspiciously. It looked kind of ridiculous, promised to be too loud, and seemed a bit juvenile.

Is it any surprise we liked it?

So now the kind people of Ubisoft have sent me a copy of the newest in the "Rabbid" family: Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time. And for those of you who love ridiculous, loud and juvenile like we do, I think you'll dig this new game.


Photobucket
First, to explain: The Rabbids are pretty much rabbits, albeit with big googly eyes, loads of attitude and lots of sound effects. And in Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time, the Rabbids are using a washing machine to travel back and forth in time.

Like most video games, I have to be upfront and say I understand very little of the overall objective, which drives my kids crazy. I will run around in circles for ten minutes until one says, "Mom! You are missing the big clue RIGHT THERE", and I'll realize I was supposed to scoop up the blinking gem or do some other important thing. So, although I played this game for a while, don't turn to me for indepth commentary on the main objectives.

And, as a rule-follower, it took me a little while to realize that whenever a warning came on the screen to say "do not push A to scream" or "do not smash", the point is to DO those things in order to progress through the game. This game will make a sick-to-death-of-rules tween very happy especially if they also giggle uncontrollably over fart noises.

No, highbrow this is not, but I sure had fun stretching my "wings" and flying through space. And I also stretched my brain a bit in a quiz where I was asked questions about history, the game itself and video games in general. Let's not talk about how I did.

I do wish the transition between the "minigames" was a little quicker since I'm very impatient with anything computerized. And there is only so long anyone of us can handle the Rabbids level of energy. Toddlers and younger kids will definitely become frustrated, and since many of the instructions pop up on screen in small letters, readers with decent eyesight will get the most out of this game.


But my kids call it "cool" even though some of the game is beyond their ability. And they definitely think the farting noises are hilarious.


WANT TO WIN A COPY? If you'd like to win a copy of Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time, please leave a comment below before 5pm on Wednesday, December 15 naming one of the costumes your Rabbid can be customized to wear (see Amazon listing). I'll pick a winner at random. Contest is open to Continental U.S. residents only.

CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congratulations to Janice (commenter #11) who was selected at random. Thanks to everyone for commenting!



Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time is available at Amazon or Toys-R-Us. It is rated 10+ for alcohol reference, crude humor and mild cartoon violence.
