PLAY­ING UN­LIKE ANY ex­ist­ing Mario game, this cross­over be­tween Nin­tendo’s iconic mas­cot and Ubisoft’s an­ar­chic Rav­ing Rabbids is yet an­other in­cred­i­ble ti­tle for the Switch’s small but im­pres­sive li­brary. A tac­ti­cal turn-based com­bat game (think X-COM, but in the Mush­room King­dom), you con­trol a three-strong team where each mem­ber has spe­cific skills. As you go, you un­lock more char­ac­ters who you can sub into your squad if they bet­ter suit your play-style or the mis­sion in front of you. Un­be­liev­ably ad­dic­tive and fre­quently hi­lar­i­ous, it has no right to be as good as it is, but it’s a rich, lay­ered ex­pe­ri­ence with a for­giv­ing learn­ing curve that will al­low you to mas­ter it by the time you’re done.
