Review: Mario + Rabbids: kingdom Battle via Geeks Under Grace

Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was the the biggest surprise from Nintendo at E3 2017. Seemingly coming out nowhere and combining elements of gameplay that Nintendo hasn't really utilized before Ubisoft Milan and Nintendo came together to create one of Nintendo Switch's best games to date.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle via TrustedReviews

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is yet another great Nintendo Switch exclusive, and one of the most original Mario titles we've seen in a long time. It may not do much outside of the core combat, but even that is enough to keep you entertained for its duration.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle review - An unlikely crossover with challenge and charm to spare via IBTimes UK

Nothing about Mario Rabbids should work. It's enough of a shock that Ubisoft Milan managed to bring together these two worlds so well, then it successfully makes its cast the stars of a genre none of them has ever been near. Robust in how it plays and confident in its presentation, Kingdom Battle is exactly the kind of bold and fun exclusive Switch needed in its first year.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review via God is a Geek

Easily the best game the Rabbids have ever been in and quite possibly Mario's best non-Nintendo spin-off.

A Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review about the many things it did right and the few things it could do better via Red Value Gaming

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is one of the easiest strategy games to get into. It teaches the mechanics to the players well and encourages them to experiment with them. If you are interested in tactical games, you should definitely try it out. Especially, as the game is void of any major flaws. The whacky humour further adds to the charm of the game.

After holding out for physical including dlc, and seeing this happen for UK but only dlc as a code... I bit the bullet and just bought the standard physical on sale for $30. It seems unlikely now that there will be a full release on cart now. I love this game so far, only tested it out as I am still chipping away at other rpg. I think I am in the minority when I say I bought this for the rabbids not Mario. Very fun.

This game has been having a lot of price drops on its physical edition lately (hovering around $25-30), probably due to the upcoming Donkey Kong DLC. I'm curious if it will get a re-release with the DLC bundled in, ala the currently digital-only Gold Edition. I would love to see a Greatest Hits line up for the Switch with games marked down to $30!

I was surprised at how well the game plays as a strategy rpg. It is actually pretty funny too. While I was at first worried how the rabbids would be they weren't nearly that bad and are pretty humorous. I still have to finish the game but have loved it so far.

This is really a great game, don't let the Rabbids turn you off from buying this game. The combat is real easy to understand and a lot of fun. Each character is unique and using different characters can make the game experience very different so there is some replayability. I found the main game to be easy but the bonus stages were a good challenge. The final challenges will really tested your skills. I put in 30 hours to 100% this game, . My main complaint is there is no "new game +", I would have like to have replayed the game without being forced to have Mario in my party the whole time. I would give this game a 9/10.

At first I thought Mario and Rabbids are not compatible with each other. But I was totally wrong. The crossover is indeed unexpectedly fun and engaging. The XCOM combat mechanics integration is also brilliant. It's not as hardcore as XCOM but it gives you just enough challenges.

Can't "judge" a book by its cover. Haha, my fatigue is showing. An option to delete or edit a posted comment you made would be a nice feature to add to the site at some point.

This game was most definitely one I wasn't expecting - and one I was expecting even less to enjoy. The thought of this crossover had me thinking that this was some sort of April Fool's joke. The characters of the Mario franchise alongside the Rabbids?... With guns?!... Yeah, I didn't have high hopes for it to say the least. But I was pleasantly surprised! The video game embodiment of "can't trust a book by its cover".

My take: If you would have asked me a year ago whether a Mario/Rabbids mashup conceived from an acid trip would be a good idea, I'd have given a definite NO. Mario / Rabbids is a charming tactical RPG that caters to the casual and hardcore fans alike. Many people compare it to XCOM and say it is a "lite" version of that (particularly in terms of difficulty). While that may very well be the case, there is a lot of challenging content here for those that desire it.

Honestly, I came close to throwing my controller in several cases, whether it be a difficult encounter or trying for "perfect" runs. Mario/Rabbids can get away with the occasional frustration because it never leaves you feeling like the game is unfair. Rather, when you screw up it's generally obvious how and why it happened. While the gun mechanics throw in a slight level of RNG into the mix, it isn't enough to be considered unfair by any stretch of the imagination.

The opening cinematic will make you feel like you're about to watch a Pixar film, while you'd never guess (judging by the animations) that Mario and his cohorts were animated externally from Nintendo themselves. Everything looks and feels great, and the soundtrack is the icing on the cake.

If you are even slightly interested in what this game has to offer, I suggest going for it. You won't be disappointed.

The cross-over between Mario and the Rabbits is actually AMAZING. It has flaws, sure, but the combat system, the music from Grant Kirkhope, the collectibles and most important, the world you are in, is the reason why you really fall in love with this game. It has a good and simple story with funny moments between Mario and his friends and epic fights between your team and powerful enemies.

Mario + Rabbids is a tactical-rpg adventure where the 30% is exploration and the 70% left are battles. The combat system is fresh and for me it was never boring. Every battle was a challenge and you needed to think wisely what to do in every situation. If you are afraid of the difficulty you shouldn't worry anymore, there is an option where at the start of every battle you can use an Easy mode where the enemies are weaker and your team gains more health points.

Discovering the collectibles is fun and I have to repeat myself, the MUSIC IS BEAUTIFUL.

I've put 30h and I'm not dissapointed, what a great game!
