In preparation for this review and the next, I revisited the four games I reviewed back in February 2015. My criticism of them still stand. I won’t come back on them, you can just go back to read those reviews instead. Speaking of, I think I strained my arm with the cow-tossing mini-game again. Peachy.
I remember loving these games so much, I spent an extra part listing my favorite and least favorite mini-games from each title (using the abbreviations RRR – Rayman Raving Rabbids -, RR – Raving Rabbids – and R – Rabbids – to keep things shorter). RRR1, RRR2 (for DS and Wii), RRR TV Party… and of course, those were only the beginning. These were followed by Rabbids Go Home, which marked the clear divide between the original trilogy of games and every one that followed. Rayman was no longer the victim of these invaders’ antics… Nah, the humans were the victims instead.
|You could call it... an invasion.|
But of course, there’s also today’s game, Rabbids Rumble. This one was developed by Headstrong Games rather than Ubisoft, and was released on November 13th, 2012. It was released solely for the Nintendo 3DS, for a simple reason: This game makes full use of the portable console’s capabilities. You’ll notice that mini-game collections do that often. I even remember when I bought this one: January 2015, G-Anime, first convention I ever went to. Hey, what’s a convention if not a great place to buy used games? As a fan of the Rabbids, of course I jumped on the occasion to buy this one!
Just look at the box. Looks fun, doesn’t it? A bunch of Rabbids dressed in various silly disguises, ready for a brawl. And the back of the box says there’s over 100 Rabbids to collect in this game! 100 different battlers! And there are still mini-games, too! What’s not to love? Okay, enough time wasted: What’s the game like?
