    Casual and Fun

    I played the original splatoon on the wii u. It was fun, but this is definitely an approvement. My only gripe with the game is that they don't really explain the power ups or some of the other features in the game that go along with scoring. If you are a really competitive person, this is probably not the best game. It can be irritating when you get paired with teammates that don't do anything or just choose not to play so they don't have to back out and get temporarily banned. So much of whether you win depends on your teammates and because you can't pick them, it can be frustrating. You also have to be at a pretty high level to play different modes of the game. I feel like ranked battles should be available right away because then all the newer and lower level players could play together and be at a similar skill level. I do love the concept of the game, I'm not into the shooting and killing games. It's nice to be able to focus on "painting" the field instead of seeking out other players to "splat".

    Fun game with strategy book for affordable price.Marie and weapons expert Sheldon, Agent 4 makes their way through Octo Canyon fighting Octarians and recovering several stolen Zapfish, including ones powering the Octarians' war machines, such as the Octo Oven and the Octo Shower. They discover that Callie herself has sided with the Octarians after being brainwashed by their leader, DJ Octavio, who has escaped his imprisonment after his defeat in the first game and once more is using the Great Zapfish to power his new DJ stage, the Octobot King II. Marie arrives with Sheldon and frees Callie from her mind control, and together they help Agent 4 defeat Octavio once more. With the Great Zapfish safely returned to Inkopolis, the Squid Sisters happily reunite and resume their musical career.

    My 4 year old and I play this game all the time. I thought I was just getting an average game to play with my son, but this game is a very solid and loads of fun game to play. There is a little bit of learning to do but it's very small. Once you understand what you are doing in the game it will become a family favorite. I would say give it at least one week of playing it to learn all the things you can do in the game. Plus learning how to us the controls and changing them to what you like will make it even more fun. I highly suggest changing the config on the controller to what is best for you instead of using the default. This game is a nice hidden gem but you NEED time with it to learn how to play it and once you do it becomes a lot fun and gets easier.

    I absolutely love this game! They're always changing or adding something and you really get into it when you have friends or others to play with. Salmon Run provides a good break from the standard main game and even the expansions (Octo Run) can help you have some 1 play fun (and help you perfect your skills). Note: You do need a Nintendo Online Subscription

    How about some multiplayer mayhem with paint? This is a great shooter where you use paint to cover as much territory as you can in the time limited. Of course you can shoot your opponents as well but that won’t win you the match. Colorful smooth gameplay. No waiting to find an online match. Plenty of offline single player fun as well.

    Splatoon 2 takes what the first game did and makes it even better with new weapons and moves to play with and even customizing your character. Hours of fun are to be had with this great game. The only downside is it not being a couch co-op style game. Each person would need their own switch system in order to play together

    The single player mode is a nice introduction but the real fun is the multiplayer and once you find the weapon set or two that click with you and get the basic mechanics down you'll be having a blast! You just can’t play it multiplayer with the same game cartridge. Must have separate copies and separate switches.) It's worth the money, you won't be sorry

    I wasn't too sure about getting this one because I'm not good at shooters. However, after 10+ hours of playing, I can say without a doubt the gameplay is addictive. I feel like the weapons are balanced. The maps have this cool design to them. The customization is solid. It is truly a fun game.

    Splatoon 2 is always updating its material and has been around pretty much since Switch came out, but is well worth the price by itself. The guidebook is colorful and although the information contained in it is useful, it makes a nice addition to those who like to collect the Splatoon items. Well worth it!

    Splatoon 2 is an amazing and fun game. The DLC really rounds out the single player but it should've been included because without it, the game feels like it's mostly multiplayer. I would Def purchase this game if you have a switch and enjoy a shooter with a more creative and fun approach.

    Costs more than the game price

    It must be noted that this game includes only a very limited amount of content which can be played without purchasing a subscription to the Nintendo network. Most of the content is only available by doing so. That said, once you spend the additional money, the game becomes fun.

    My kid loves this game. Probably his favorite so far. Please be aware that you will need to purchase an online membership to Nintendo to get the full enjoyment from this game. I wish the games cost less up front if you have to pay extra to use all the features.

    This is one of my favorite Switch games. The gameplay, graphics, and single and multiplayer are significantly improved from the original. The DLC is great. I would get this version with the extra items included for the same price.

    Splatoon 2 is an incredibly addicting online multiplayer (with a decent story too). A great game if you only have 10-20 minutes at a time to play. But be warned you might not want to stop after just one match.

    so much fun! my 8 year old loves it. requires online membership. what i like about that is during game play they can’t communicate via online - only they can say, “this way” or “booya!” which is a piece of mind with an 8 year old online.

    Splatoon 2 is a good game for both casual and competitive players. The motion control aiming system feels good and is great fun to play with. Even though the game is more focused on Multiplayer, it also offers a single player mode.

    When I asked the grandchildren what they thought of their new Splatoon 2 games (I bought two), they both excitedly told me they were "great" and went on to share how far they had made it. Great, exciting and entertaining! Thank you!

    Nothing like the cod or rainbow six. It is a game that I could play with my parents and friends who had zero interests in FPS games. Colorful, adorable and still excellent control system. What else are you asking for?

    If you liked the first one, you´ll love this sequel. Better graphics, new modes and weapons, better single player experience, it´s just a nice fast and fun package that you just can´t get enough.

    Daughter asked for game but we were unaware you couldn't play the game without a Nintendo.com account which has a monthly fee. They can only play in the practice mode, very disappointing.
