A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Educational Value

Rabbids Rumble wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Positive Messages

The game's premise is flimsy (escaped Rabbids must be re-captured), and no motivation is offered for why the Rabbids must fight each other in the arena. The game does encourages players to be social through multiplayer modes, but only to battle each other.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The Rabbids are violent and silly. They aren't immoral or evil, but they aren't exactly great role models either.

Ease of Play

Players in the target age range should find the mini-games and turn-based battles simple to master.

Violence

Rabbids beat on each other in the arena with cartoonish attacks that draw no blood and are meant to be humorous. Rabbids can be electrocuted, crushed, blown up, and hit. Some attacks knock the Rabbids down or cause dizzy stars to appear over their heads. Rabbids can be K.O.'d and fall on their face for a few seconds. Players capture Rabbids by slapping them repeatedly on the face.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rabbids Rumble combines mini-games, battling, and collecting together with the Rabbids' trademark cartoonish violence. Rabbids gleefully pummel each other using a variety of slapstick gags, like oversized boxing gloves and 1-Ton weights. There's crude humor too, such as cow catapults powered by fart gas. The Rabbids suffer no lasting injuries, however, and the violence is all meant to be silly.

What's it about?

In RABBIDS RUMBLE players seek to capture 102 Rabbids that have \"escaped\" from the 3DS by unlocking them in Story mode and Multiplayer mode, using StreetPass and SpotPass to exchange Rabbids with friends, and by scanning QR codes. By completing mini-games in the Story mode, players gain access to the Battle Arena where they can send Rabbids to battle each other either against friends (via multiplayer) or the computer via turn-based 3-on-3 battles.

Is it any good?

Given the Rabbids' penchant for mayhem and slapstick violence, a game such as this that incorporates one-on-one arena battles is a great fit. Much of the game's humor is derived from watching the Rabbids beat on each other with over-the-top attacks. There are also dozens of mini-games that exploit the system's 3D effects, camera, wireless connectivity, and microphone. Gameplay is fun -- for a while -- but ultimately the experience is superficial and a little too easy.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about slapstick humor. Does the cartoonish nature of the violence make it OK to laugh at? Where do you draw the line?

  • Do you enjoy the game's 3D effects? Do you think more games should use this technology? What other kinds of entertainment can you find in 3D?
