Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
Top Critic Average
Despite it overstaying its welcome, just about everyone agrees that Kingdom Battle is a joyous merger of Mario and Rabbids. The tactical gameplay is simple enough for kids but has the complexities you'd expect from the genre.

Critic Reviews for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
Based on its colorful world, beautiful animation, and source material you might expect Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle to be “My first turn-based tactics game.” But you're in for a surprise: even for XCOM vets some of its battles are challenging puzzles. Some of its tougher levels do devolve into a trial-and-error slog, but a good mix of enemies, objectives, and character abilities keep things interesting.
Mario + Rabbids manages to walk a narrow road, offering up a legitimately challenging squad tactics experience without alienating the family friendly Mario audience. While it doesn't quite have the full layer of spit and polish of an in-house title, Ubisoft comes damn close to capturing that Nintendo magic.
