Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope' Review
The hilarious hijinks come a mile a minute and are funny enough for gamers of all ages. Plus the art style is quite charming.
Plenty of Charm and Humor
The switch from a grid-based movement layout to a more open battlefield exploration method greatly improves strategic options.
Better Battle Movement
The new playable characters, the addition of stat-boosting "Sparks," and varied combat scenarios are all awesome.
Improved Battle Systems
The orchestral tunes that play out during world exploration and battles all sound phenomenal.
A Great Soundtrack
The sense of progression is addictive - equipping two Sparks to each character is one example of that enjoyable element.
Not being able to use healing items outside battle sucks, plus being forced to pay for a full party heal is weird.
Iffy Healing Mechanics
The Switch's aging hardware trips this game up with moments of choppy performance and annoying load times
Sucky Loading Times
'Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope' features a bunch of welcome upgrades and offers one of the best strategy RPGs on Switch.
