Finished this earlier on, 100% and all Perfect, took roughly 65 hours in total. Yup, I’m as characteristically slow as ever. The environmental details and Rabbids’ antics slowed me down a lot because I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff.
If you’re wondering whether to truck on with the story and do the challenges later or do the challenges after each world, I’d recommend the latter. Coming back at the end would make them all a lot easier reducing the challenge and the strategy required. Not to mention, it does get trickier later on anyway so the added coins and orbs will help keep your heroes up to scratch and your options open.
From the discussions I’ve read on the subreddit, it seems most folk think Rabbid Luigi is the best hero and Rabbid Yoshi one of the worst… but I think this view is very shortsighted! I cycled the characters throughout the game and some of the abilities and synergies are just so powerful. I’d encourage you all to experiment and not rely on the same heroes.
Anyway, what a tremendous game, and what a surprise. This is the Ubisoft I love.
