Splatoon 2

released on Jul 21, 2017

Splatoon 2 is a multiplayer third-person shooter in which players control characters known as Inklings and use colored ink to attack opponents and clear goals. Inklings can alternate between humanoid form, during which they can fire ink with their weapons, and squid form, which allows them to swim through ink of their own color in order to move quickly and replenish ink supplies.

Another great game to the series, Fun Story better modes, and maps, loved the music, and weapons, and it was a better experience, revive me in salmon run pls


god i wish nintendo online was good


Era of Splatoon 2 is soon coming to an end, so I figured I'd post this review.
I like Splatoon 2 but I feel it has a lot of the same issues the first game has. There's not much to do outside of online play or singleplayer to keep me actively engaged in the game.
Turf war and ranked gets boring after a while.
I very much enjoy Salmon Run but it's not well done because of the incompetence of other players. I hope it's better in the next game.
Is it worth 60? Not really. But I haven't felt any splatoon entry besides Octo Expansion is worth its price.


There were some disappointing aspects to this game that I wish were taken care of such as the inability to change load-outs between matches (at least in the first few months the game came out, not sure if this was addressed through a patch), not being able to play with a friend for the most part (my friend kept getting placed in the opposing team), lack of robust voice chat system (more of a Nintendo problem), etc.

The single-player campaign is solid and was fun but I still think the first game had a better campaign and final boss.



+ Ink mechanic depth
+ Style/attitude in music, characters, cosmetics
+ Motion controls work excellently ; allow quick and precise aiming
+ Community focus (e.g. Splatfests)

- Too similar to original Splatoon
- Single player too limited


[Story Mode] I had a great time here, even if my general suckiness at shooters hampered me here and lead to some frustrating moments. There's a couple of purposefully irritating areas in here that hold me back from giving it a top score, but it's still a game absolutely worth your time. Definitely held its weight all these years later as a Switch staple for a reason.
