Turn-based strategy isn\u2019t for everyone\u2014but if that\u2019s what you love, and you\u2019d like to introduce that genre to your kids, you should consider Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle. It\u2019s one of the best Nintendo Switch games to incorporate turn-based strategy, Super Mario, and Ubisoft\u2019s Rabbids in a very goofy and fun package.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Review\r\nSuper Mario games usually don\u2019t venture into turn based strategy games often\u2014but when it does, you get something like Mario Rabbids Kingdom, where Mario meets Ubisoft\u2019s Rabbids.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nJumping into Rabbids Kingdom Battle Mario wielding a laser was jarring at first, but give it a few tries and you\u2019ll settle into its rather complex turn-based combat. This isn\u2019t the Mario that runs around freely, taking on goombas and what not; you control a squad of three characters, trekking through various environments of the Mushroom Kingdom to take on Ubisoft\u2019s Rabbids. It\u2019s really easy to get into, especially for kids, but after a few levels, you\u2019ll start to uncover the increasingly complex style of play. That easy to learn, hard to master mentality is familiar and present in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.\r\nDesign\r\nAs for design, Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle is aesthetically pleasing in that bubbly style that Mario is known for, and rather cute. You\u2019ll see Rabbids clash with Nintendo\u2019s beloved characters in ways such as Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Donkey Kong, and more. Animations are very distinct, reactionary, and sometimes very flashy. We preferred the animation in Ni No Kuni more, just because of its unique artstyle. It\u2019s still neat running around the Mushroom Kingdom, taking out Rabbids in strategic fashion. And if you\u2019re worried about blood\u2014there is none! It was intentionally designed to appeal to children, and even holds an Everyone 10+ rating, unlike the Witcher 3 Wild Hunt being Mature 17+.\r\nValue\r\nMario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle makes a lot of good choices, from design to performance. It does, however, make a few mistakes. For starters, it supports two-player co-op. That\u2019s great\u2014but you\u2019ll need to beat World 1.5 before multiplayer opens up. And by extensive, online multiplayer is non-existent. Thankfully, the game is just as fun playing single-player as it is playing with a friend. Additionally, there\u2019s a tonne of replay value, considering each level gives you a score, which you can play again for a better score.\r\nMario and Rabbids Kingdom Review Wrap Up\r\nMario and Rabbids Kingdom is a tonne of goofy fun for kids and adults alike. It\u2019s simple enough that kids can get into it, without feeling overwhelmed, but complex enough for an adult to feel challenged, if they want it to be. It\u2019s enjoyable single-player or with two-player co-op. It was easy to forgive its lack of online multiplayer.
