One of the launch titles for Nintendo's Wii, Rayman Raving Rabbids helped prove just how fun Nintendo's new console can be. Now that it's made it's way to other systems, the game seemed like a nice fit for the DS considering it's touch screen use. Sadly though, unlike what is basically a fun collection of mini-games like we got for the Wii, Rayman Raving Rabbids for the DS is a basic platformer that doesn't have enough steam to make it anything really special. Playing as the Ubi Soft mascot, you traverse your way in a 2-D side scroller with some 3-D backgrounds as you avoid the insane Rabbids and other hazzards. While the Rabbids are still deliriously funny and Rayman himself has a nice set of moves and abilities, the game at it's core is a generic side scrolling platformer with touchy controls, shoddy looking graphics, and the game's short length doesn't help either. Now and then between levels, you'll get to partake in mini-games that offer the nice amounts of fun you'd hope to find here, but it doesn't last long. That being said, Rayman Raving Rabbids isn't a bad game at all, but there's nothing about it that sets it apart from other platformers either, and it's nowhere near as fun as the Wii version.
