Splatoon 2 

 

I tried so hard to like Splatoon 2. I drank the Kool-Aid, and listened to the fan-boys. There are just too many parts of Splatoon 2 that are obnoxious. First thing that happens when we get into this game is to listen to two female squid characters about the different online options and modes that are available. This can not be skipped. We are forced to see it every single time we start to play Splatoon 2.

The default controls are horrible. They can be changed after the tutorial. Even then the controls in Splatoon 2 are not that great. I had to constantly adjust the camera to shoot all these enemies. Splatoon 2 attacks the single player mode and calls it shady. The online matching is still horrible, and in the near future families will have to pay to play online. Splatoon 2 is nice to families in terms of violence. We have less violence in Splatoon 2 than most other shooters.

The issues families can have with Splatoon 2 is the violence, lack of attire, no local multiplayer and more. There are real limitations to what kind of inkling character we can create in Splatoon 2. Upgrades are extremely costly. They are needed to win online though. There are some neat weapons in Splatoon 2.

The single player mode in Splatoon 2 is more difficult than the first game. There are all kinds of obnoxious tricks the enemies perform. There are also ink seeking enemies to get you on the hook to cook. Old Amiibos give gear only which is really lame. I do not know what new Amiibos give in this Nintendo Switch video game.

Each level in Splatoon 2 has some little twist to it. I got so tired of constantly having to do things a certain way to get through specific areas. Online wait times are horrible. You will need to be a certain level to even consider competing online. At this point it is level four, and will most likely climb in the future.

I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased Splatoon 2 for this review. The failures of the PR and Marketing departments for Nintendo are well chronicled. To me Splatoon 2 is worth five to ten dollars brand new.
