Rabbids Go Home – Video Review
NintendoWorldReport – 90
If you love the Rabbids or just want a great game for your Wii, don’t hesitate and take the Rabbids home.
NGamer UK – 86
The Rabbids can pull off a fully fledged game without Rayman’s assistance. This is witty, charming and, above all, incredible fun.
IGN – 85
Rabbids Go Home is not a Raving Rabbids sequel, but an altogether different experience — one far more inspired and ambitious. This title at times feels like an action romp and at times a platformer on wheels, but regardless of the scenario, you’ll be having fun and smiling if not laughing.
Kombo – 85
If you have any inkling to play this game, you are likely to be caught in its zany madness and love it the more you play it.
Cheat Code Central – 84
Rabbids Go Home is a pretty fat package, with loads of cool extras. The Rabbids channel is an inspired addition, and the level play of the main game is rock solid throughout.
Official Nintendo Magazine UK – 83
It’s an absolute hoot but if you’re after a meaty challenge, you definitely won’t find it here.
GamePro – 80
Even with the game’s strength is its unusual and original tone, players can rest assured that this game is just as accessible as it is odd. Featuring an overdose of quirky charm and a wide range of fun-filled gameplay, gamers who aren’t used to playing titles outside of the norm will be remiss if they don’t give Rabbids Go Home a chance.
Eurogamer – 80
Not everyone is going to enjoy this. Some people will never warm to Ubisoft’s anarchic little fiends, many will find the constant enthusiasm draining. This isn’t a purchase for hardcore enthusiasts or steely battlefield veterans with a thousand-yard stare and a pico-second response time. The rest of you, should you be able to engage your inner child, could well find a big old slice of the fun pie cooling on your windowsill.
Nintendo Life – 80
Rabbids Go Home is an extremely entertaining and funny game – the Rabbids’ attitude and anarchic humour paper over a lot of the repetition and minor faults that pepper the game. The two player mode is passable but Rabbids Go Home excels as an all-out single player game, full of unexpected wit and a relentlessly fun atmosphere, and one you’ll love if you’re after a pick-up-and-play game to cheer up these dark Winter nights.
Game Informer – 75
Rabbids Go Home, though at times repetitive, is a fun game with laugh-out-loud animations. Any game with Rabbids in fisticuffs over a pouch of Capri Sun is okay in my book.
1UP – 75
Everything from the soundtrack (which features licensed tracks like “Somebody to Love” and “Me and Mrs. Jones”) to the customization features to the virtual pet-style Rabbid-inside-your-Wii Remote bonus mode adds enough personality to the relatively simple platforming to make this worth playing.
giving it a go!
Nintendo Power – 70
Difficulty issues aside, this is a definite step in the right direction for the Rabbids, and I hope to see them continue this way. [Holiday 2009, p.88]
