Splatoon 2 has a lot to offer! The new music is great, the modes are fun, new maps to play on, tons of new weapons and gimmicks to try, there’s more customization for your inkling, and with the DLC you can even play as an octoling! While as of now there aren’t updates anymore, I keep coming back to play some more rounds of turf war. Salmon Run alone is a fantastic addition from the previous game.
I cannot ignore the connection issues I do have every so often. The servers are sometimes pretty wacky, causing online matches to be a bust. This isn’t much of an issue anymore as it was in the release of the game though.
There’s also a single player storyline which felt lackluster as well. I won’t say spoilers but if you’re a fan of the first game, don’t expect much. Seeing the past idols was super cute but it felt underwhelming and expected. The DLC on the otherhand is FANTASTIC. It’s entirely new gameplay along with a much more new and interesting plot. I ended up falling in love with every single character, especially the idols! If you’re willing to spend an extra $20, it is a well deserved addition to the game!
As mentioned before, Salmon Run is one of the best aspects of the game. It’s a brand new mode to the games and it’s extremely fun to play. It is also not available every day. In my opinion, this is a bummer. Why give it a rotation period, especially since it’s separate from turf war and ranked?
As a die hard fan? I’d give it a 5/5, but overall it is a 4.8/5. I love it a ton, but there’s little changes here and there I wish I could fix.
I hope you enjoyed the read!
