Another strong title for the Nintendo Switch.

I haven't played this game (I do not own a Switch), but I do not fully agree with the statement that "Ubi Soft doesn't have the best track record when it come to video games". They did some of the best platform games ever (Rayman Origins, Rayman Legends), Assassin's Creed is a worldwide well-known franchise (which I do not like, but I lot of people do), Child of Light and Beyond Good & Evil are pretty good games, The Call of Juarez offered some pretty decent western FPS shooting, the Far Cry series are liked by many (though not by me, I'm too impatient), the Just Dance series are selling by millions, they also did some decent Prince of Persia and Raving Rabbids games, I thought Red Steel made good use of the Wii motion controls, so why the remark? I'm sure they did some crappy games, but so did many other great developers (Sega, Konami e.d.)

Yeah, I imagine that Ubisoft line stems from your recent experiences, particularly with Steep, but they do have a pretty big catalog of great game, including ones you’ve reviewed and given high marks to. Maybe you want to tweak that line to say something more like Ubisoft has put out some stinkers recently.

Thanks for the feedback. I tweaked the line to say "as of late".

If anything, this game is proof that ideas that sound bad on paper can still be executed well.

No clue why they didn't make any effort to cross over with Rayman too though considering the Rabbids first appeared in a Rayman game.

I started this one recently. I don’t play many strategy games but this really has me hooked. It’s not super easy but also not so tough that it gets frustrating. And I find the humor pretty charming.

Thanks for the review. I've been wanting to pick it up to give it a try. There's a really great developer diary on the Interwebs if anyone is interested. A google search should bring it up. I always find the development story interesting. A French company pulled off making a Mario styled game with limited guidance from Nintendo. Kind of cool.
