Keep Rabbids from Taking Over your Home! - Rabbids Alive & Kicking for Xbox360 w/Kinect Review & Giveaway #ShopaholicSanta

Ok, so I'm going to tell you all a secret but we can't let my son find out!  His very generous and loving grandparents bought him an Xbox 360 for Christmas and he has been asking for one for the past year.  Since Josh lost his job we're not able to pick up anything for him for Christmas, ourselves, so when Ubisoft asked me to review the Rabbid's Alive and Kicking game, I thought this would make the perfect gift!
Since the Xbox 360 and the game are supposed to be gifts, it was a little complicated to be able to review this but luckily Josh's friend has an Xbox 360 with Kinect and Ashton wouldn't mind if we played it just once!  And besides, after watching the previews and reading a few reviews of my own I just had to try this game out for myself!
What is Rabbids Alive & Kicking?
According to the official site, "The Rabbids have already invaded the past, the world, your TV, and the moon, and now they are set to invade your own home, coming out of the floor and interacting with you through ridiculous and humorous physical challenges.  This year with the augmented reality, watch as the Rabbids mess with your life in front of your very eyes!"  Features include:
  • Rabbids come to life: Rabbids become real, emerge from the floor, and interact with players in unique experiences and augmented reality.
  • Rabbids take control: Swim, jump, dance, roll, and slap freely, all in the hope to halt the Rabbids from invading.  Square off with them in the craziest min-games, in the most insane situations ever imagined!
  • Rabbids Redefine: The party game genre has been redefined with the ability to play with up to 4 players simultaneously; a first on the Kinect.  Time to turn the living room upside down with friends and family with an abundance of customizable game types.
  • Join the Rabbids Community: Capture and share online photos, accomplishments, and high scores with friends and family.
My Review
As I mentioned before, it was a bit of a challenge reviewing this game without Ashton seeing it but we pulled it off!  Rabbids Alive & Kicking is the perfect game to play on a family game night, a rainy day or anytime you're looking to have a blast!  We absolutely LOVE this game and I really think Ashton's going to love it too!  The interaction is incredible!  This game will have you all over the place!  It also have 40 fun and crazy mini games so you'll never get bored!  I had never tried the Xbox 360 Kinect but I am so impressed with how easy and fun it is to play!  I very very highly recommend this game to anyone with an Xbox 360 with Kinect that is looking for a fantastic time to spend with friends or loved one!  This game will surely put a smile on your face like it did on all of ours!
