A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Rabbids Land wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
This game aims to make groups of up to four players in the same room giggle while engaged in friendly competition with one another. It can make for good social interaction, though its sense of humor is somewhat juvenile, centering largely on jokes about farting, peeing, burping, and barfing.
Positive Role Models
The rabbids don't make great role models. They're not very bright, seem drawn to dangerous activities, and enjoy attacking one another when occasion permits. That said, their hijinks are, by and large, very cartoonish and pretty much impossible for kids to replicate in the real world.
Ease of Play
Players are offered detailed instructions and a chance to practice before each mini-game. The main game walks kids through each turn, leaving virtually no possibility of getting stuck. That said, some of the games may take a bit of time to master.
Violence & Scariness
Cartoon rabbit-like characters are repeatedly whacked, squished, and punched. They never appear to suffer any serious injury, save perhaps one game in which potential thieves appear to be zapped to dust.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rabbids Land is a collection of mini-games meant for up to four people. As with previous games in this series, most activities are accompanied by a very basic brand of bathroom humor -- expect tame gags about burping, cow bums, and throwing up -- likely to be enjoyed most by tweens. The cartoonish, dopey rabbids don't display many behaviors that parents would want their kids to emulate, but their antics can make for a positive, laugh-filled social gaming experience among the right players.
Is It Any Good?
It's not quite on par with the Wii U's other theme park party game, Nintendo Land, but Rabbids Land is still a fair bit of fun. It puts the system's touch-screen equipped GamePad controller to good use most of the time, typically employing it as a dedicated display for one of the game's players. One person will focus on the tablet to, say, trace pictures, tilt a platform to roll a pair of marbles around, or guide thieves through a security maze, while a second player watches the TV screen and takes on an opposing role from a different perspective using a Wii remote and nunchuk.
Just keep in mind that most mini-games generally involve just two players selected at the start of the turn. That means you can expect to spend a fair bit of time just sitting and watching other people play. Plus, a few of the mini-games are somewhat uninspired, such as a quiz show focusing on random disgusting facts that most players will simply guess at, including how much snot the average person swallows in a given day (something you really don't need or probably want to know). Still, the board game makes for good multiplayer fun in short bursts.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
