Rayman Raving Rabbids and Fuel get Xbox One backward compatibility support today
Another day, another small but satisfying gathering of Xbox 360 titles to add to Microsoft’s ever-growing list of games with Xbox One backward compatibility support: and this time, it’s the turn of Rayman Raving Rabbids, Fuel, and Battlestations: Pacific.
Clearly these aren’t quite as high-profile as some of Microsoft’s past efforts, but it’s a diverse, decently entertaining selection, nonetheless. Rayman Raving Rabbids, for instance, which released on Xbox 360 in 2007, marked the debut of Ubisoft’s ever-divisive loudmouthed furballs, the Rabbids (basically the Minions before the Minions were a thing) – seen to great effect in 2017’s wonderful Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on Switch.
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a collection of 75 mini-games featuring plenty of humour and polish. And while the Xbox 360 version lacks the amusingly silly motion controls seen in the original Wii version, there’s still some fun to be had. Eurogamer contributor Keza McDonald called the Wii game “lively, inventive and fun” in her 7/10 review, noting that while “it doesn’t have any depth to speak of, [it] has a genuine sense of humour, a quality few games can boast”.
