A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Kids can learn to practice socializing and may even build friendships in this group play game. There's little in the way of puzzle solving or strategizing, but kids play together in groups of up to four in friendly competition. They'll laugh together at the Rabbids' onscreen antics and pit their reflexes against those of their friends to try to earn more points, communicating with one another throughout. Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show doesn't aspire to teach kids anything, but it does create a fun environment in which kids can pal around and become comfortable with one another.
Playing physically active games with friends, family is fun. But characters laugh at one another's pain, put others in danger.
Positive Role Models
Rabbids laugh at each other when they get hurt and frequently attempt to injure each other with no regard for what's happening around them, often putting others in danger.
Ease of Play
Just follow on-screen cues and try to react quicker than your fellow players.
Violence & Scariness
Rabbids get hurt and sometimes yelp in discomfort, but injuries never appear serious. Cartoonish hijinks include slaps, hits, throws, and, in one case, electrocution.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show asks players to react to cues presented onscreen while watching episodes from Ubisoft's Rabbids Invasion TV show. Most of the game is spent watching the rabbit-like creatures engaged in shenanigans that may involve them getting hurt from being slapped, electrocuted, or hit with an egg. Rather than show concern, fellow Rabbids simply watch, point, and laugh at their friends' misfortunes. None of them ever get seriously injured, though they do sometimes yelp in pain. Their activities frequently put other characters in danger, though it's played for humor. The game demands physical activity and can make for a positive social experience when played with friends and family.
Is It Any Good?
The bunny-like Rabbids are the modern equivalent of Loony Tunes. So it should come as no surprise that, after first developing Rabbids games, Ubisoft made a TV show based on them -- or that things have now come full circle, with the TV show itself becoming a game. In fact, the best part of the game is the show. Some of the Rabbids' antics are so funny that they divert players' attention from the game, providing opportunity for quick thinkers to take advantage of their rivals' giggling distraction.
But the game itself could do with a bit of work. Point allocation is seemingly random. One player might get five points for pointing at a specified object, another player might earn 20 for pointing at another object a few seconds later. Plus, like all motion-sensing games, the camera doesn't always properly interpret players' movements, which can lead to frustration, especially during pose-mimicking activities. Still, most of the fun comes from watching the show, and there are about four or five hours' worth of shows to work through. Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show should be good for a few evenings' worth of entertainment; just don't expect to still be playing a month or two after you've purchased it.
