Splatoon 2

Recommended Posts

AndrewDean84    517

So I probably put a good 2 hours into it last night. Seems like it's an improvement over the first game in just about every way. 

 

I was able to get to level 4 in Regular Battles. A whole lot of fun. 

 

Visually, while not technically a stellar looking game, it still manages to look great and performs perfectly. 

 

I tried the single player and it's what you would expect. It's likely what I'll play on my work breaks. I like that the levels reward exploration too. 

 

I can't wait to try Salmon Run with my daughter after work. I surprised her this morning with her own digital copy on her Switch. She was so happy. Typically, I buy 1 physical game for us to share on our switch's, but Splatoon 2 doesn't have local co-op. 

 

Here's a screenshot I took last night:

Yep, 4 vs 4 and super buttery smooth, tons of Splatting fun!

Yes, 4 v 4, but if you play it like a shooter,  you'r only going to lose.  Probably some of the most online fun I've had in a long time.  Matches are quick, lobby time has gone down from the first game, more modes and more!  This game has a lot for a $60 price tag, plus all future content is free, and splatfests are guaranteed for "at least" 2 years. 

 

This game has the potential to topple Zelda from my most played game in 2017 position.

I can't decide which weapon I like using. The giant paint roller is great. Especially when the other team has horrible aim and can't hit you while you paint and run them down. I was also having good luck with that long range (sharpshooter? I forget the name). Played a few more games after I hit lvl 4. I really liked it but most matches were so one sided it hurt. I was only on the winning team 2 or 3 games. Most games were just blowouts though. Hope that clears up with more experience.

Played this for a little over an hour (However long it takes to get to level 4 so I can buy a shirt) had fun.

 

Though I have a couple of gripes. The "menu" is pretty confusing at the beginning. I just wanted to go to multiplayer which I guess is "lobby" but I went everywhere else first and then you have to listen to all this story stuff before you can even go back.

Also, what's with Nintendo games and getting to level 4 before you can do anything? To play ranked in Arms you need to be level 4, you have to be level 4 in this game to buy gear. WTF? Just let me do it damn it!

How's single play? Shit to unlock? Most of my MK8 playtime was spent in local multiplayer and 3-starring all of the cups on every cc.

Y'all kicked their butts lol

 

This is easy to achieve if even one person is afk. You'll get stomped.

I didn't play the original because I was sort of done with my WiiU by the time it came out..

took me a bit to really "get" this game (most of my issue is that I won't read or study up I just want to hop in and figure things out)..

now that I got the swing of it, loving it.

Salmon Run is a very good secondary mode. I may play that more than anything else.

Finally picked it up yesterday, but didn't get a chance to play.  Tonight?  Tomorrow?  I need to get un-busy...my games miss me. :(
