Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Mario Rabbids

I received a copy of the new game from Ubisoft called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for the Nintendo Switch. I got it for free to play with and review. I can legitimately say, I’m loving this game!

I totally love puzzles and complex games. I enjoy trying to figure out problems and the best way to solve them. I also enjoy things that are funny. The game is easy to start playing. You start out with Mario, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Luigi. These Rabbids characters have crossed into the Mushroom Kingdom and they are causing all sorts of crazy havoc. The Rabbids have discovered an Augmented reality helmet, the SupaMerge. With it they can combine two things and make something new. They can combine a lamp and a flower to make a flower lamp. The Rabbids take the device to the Mushroom World. There the device malfunctions and the kingdom gets torn apart. Your quest it to put things right again. You are also aided by an artificial intelligence named Beep-O.

The Game is filled with all the humor that you would expect from the mischievous Rabbids. Where Mario and his friends are kind to everyone, the Rabbids do their own thing. There is one hilarious moment where Rabbid Peach knocks over a large pile of blocks that a Rabbid Donkey Kong is atop of. As he falls she snaps selfies of him in the background. Rabbid Donkey Kong is a fun boss to take on.

I’ve gone through 9 of the worlds so far and each gets a little harder than the next. Along the way you can upgrade your characters skills, weapons and secondary weapons. My copy of the game came with some DLC content of additional pixel based weapons. Some weapons bounce the baddies off the screen others cover them in sticky honey to prevent them from getting away. The game has already won a ton of awards, too. Take a look at this video.

The game is a turn-based tactical battle game. The player can also explore the world and find additional items like weapons and artifacts. Also as you continue through the game you will find additional characters to use to play the game. You have to use a mix of tactics to solve the objective. You may need to defeat all enemies or a certain number of them. There may be obstacles on the game board that you can use to your advantage. There are even giant Chomps that can easily take 75 hit points away from any character, good guys or bad guys. Stay away from them and heard the bad guys towards them and you can make a powerful unwitting ally.

Crazy Rabbids Weapons

The weapons are silly. There are a ton of them, too. You buy them with gold coins or get them from DLC packs and you can even use amiibo characters for Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Peach. I believe that the amiibo character also unlock new weapons. I keep meaning to try this and keep forgetting to get out my characters.

You can play this game in multiplayer mode and also in local co-op mode. Andrew has indicated that he wants to play and I think that is something that we will do together soon. This is a very fun game with great cut scenes and awesome action. It is also quite challenging but that is a great thing.
