Who needs a plot?
The plot of RRR isn’t interesting enough. But who cares? The excitement of unlocking the new mini-games, each one with something new to offer, is the real money-getter here. The best part about the mini-games is that they are easy to pick up. The most difficult trials took a few attempts, but generally, they only take one try. There are instructions at the start of each mini-game, telling you the score you need to win and how to use the controls. The instructions are basic, but extremely efficient. I honestly cannot tell you how I think the PS2 players get anything out of this game, you really need a Wii to enjoy the mini-games.
RRR’s graphics are decent. They’re not as good as Zelda, but they aren’t bad either. Rabbids get close enough to really freak you out. They just look like cruel, half-mental, half-retarded, heartless, non-fluffy rabbits. Rayman looks pretty good for a character with no arms, legs, or neck to speak of. His motions are flowing enough, and his costumes are frickin’ awesome. If only everyone had the Rayman flair….
In addition to Rayman’s wardrobe, the rabbids also have several different costumes they can wear. This involves everything from flippers and snorkels to cowboy hats. Surprisingly, the rabbids also have a variety of weapons. I know the plunger is the most heavily advertised weapon, but there are metal strainers, cheese graters, sticks of dynamite, and weiners. That’s right, a rabbid could flail you with an Oscar Meyer weiner. How frickin’ lame are you if you succumb to the power of a hot dog!? Wait… I am writing to college students and office nerds right? Oooops…….
Besides the story mode, RRR has a multiplayer. Up to four players can get together and play minigames, and of course, the highest scoring player wins. Smashing rabbids together can really be fun, and the laughs that players will get out of it together makes Rayman one of the better multiplayers available for the Wii at this time.
Another game mode gives players the opportunity to play their favorite mini-games again for a high score. Boasting about your Rayman scores may sound nerdy, but it often takes some mad skill to get to the top.
