When Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle launched in September 2017, we rated it 7.8 out of 10.
In a shocker, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is actually really good. Great visuals, a deep battle system, toe-tapping tunes and more than enough content to keep you, well, content. It’s just a shame staying enamoured with the game and its battles can feel difficult. The game is well worth it for Rabbids fans and people wanting a lighter approach to turn-based strategy shooters such as X-COM, though how long it’ll keep you interested for might be shorter than you’d like.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle looks, plays and sounds better than you would've ever expected from such a confusing crossover - an interesting take on the X-COM formula that can start to feel tedious, but starts amazingly and will keep many players stuck into the turn-based strategy shooter.
