Why do I want to play this?

#1 Posted by Mikemcn (6982 posts) -

I watched the videos on the site, and they look so happy, i suddenly have the urge to buy this game.... Am i going mad, i play call of duty not games with cute rabbit like things for kids. Anyone else think this game looks actually kinda fun?

Maybe its because its very much like a pixar movie or something, it just looks good, and i havent even seen anything about it yet.

I wouldn't call the Rabbid "cute", but they are definitely great characters. They are the charm of the game, no doubt about that.

There's already plenty of videos about the game, so do check it out. It's quite different from what the first Rabbid's games were about. This one is more of a Karamari Damacy, while the others were about mini games. It could be fun, it's hard to tell. The other games in the series weren't bad, but they got repetitive down the line. But since this one will be a different thing, it's hard to know what to expect. But risking in buying it is a acceptable bet.

Subliminal messages. That's why.

yeah i know what you mean. i've pumped hours into CoD, No More Heroes, Resident Evil, Valkyria Chronicles, Fallout, and dozens of other hardcore games, but i find myself really looking forward to Rabbids Go Home. in fact, i think it looks kind of awesome. i also have a soft spot for Wii Sports.

Just the sight of those damn Rabbids brings a smile to your face.  It is nigh on impossible to resist.  I too am looking forward to it, not just beacause of the Rabbids, but because it looks like a fun game.  


I always thought after the first Rabbids game, that I could play a FPS Rabbids game.  The shooting sections were awesome and a full blown parody game would be right up my alley.

I got one of the Rabbids standing on my desk :P
I've never played the games but looking at those small bastards makes me want too.

Is the other games any good?.. At all?

I have the first one and it isn't awesome, but still, a lot of fun.  Get it if it is cheap (as it will be) and it is good value for money - Wii only, not PS2.

It looks like a lot of fun.

I can get it pretty cheap. Like half of what cheap is, which ironically is double the amount of what cheap is in the US.
I don't even know. I think I need to see some videos of it.

Grammatical errors aside, that's a very shallow way of putting it. E rated games are rated E for everyone, if it was for kids it would be rated K. If a game is fun, play it. You aren't any more manly by playing Call of Duty than you are Rabbids go home.

I'm gonna fight the good fight.  I refuse to buy this game.  I want to deliver myself from evil and go down the path of salvation.

The third game is positively awesome, both single- and multiplayer. It is also among the top games in the consoles library that use the Wiimote reliably and in great ways.

Rayman was the worst part of Raving Rabbids.  Seriously.  It is great that they are now a franchise in themselves so they can ditch Rayman and focus what they are good at.  Sure. ket them make a new Rayman game, but I won't have much interest.

Not as sweet as a trolley with TWO jet engines, but other than that, your logic is solid

It's actually a really fun game. I've really enjoyed my time with it. You should definitely pick it up if you're interested.
