Splatoon 2, a video game review

A video game review by: Lee Sonogan

(2017) Action, family, fantasy

original

This is a sequel to the previous game, Splatoon made in 2015. A third person shooter game developed by Nintendo. You play as creatures called Inklings using weaponsied ink to spray paint and splat opponents. This video game is also a action-adventure/online multiplayer game. You win this game by filling the map with paint more than the other team. You have to play this game to belive it.

All the modes in the game are Octo Canyon, Regular battle, Salmon Run, Ranked battle, Splatfest battle, League battle and Private battle. Gameplay in theses modes are short and very fun. You gain levels and earn coins to buy things. Such as better weapons and clothing. Some of the clothing even has special skills you need to level up. One of my favourite weapons is the bucket. Throw paint around at people and it will get the kill in the game. Even though you don’t have to kill people to win the online game.

To sum up the absolute game you must give it time. I sure did. Wish I had better internet to play it more… It is one of the most original shooter games I have ever played. Its colourful with Nintendo style and interestedly competitive. It may cost a bit in the present so consider getting it when it is a little cheaper. Other than that, this is an underrated game once you learn how to enjoy it. I recommend this video game to every one who likes quick matches and alternative  first person shooter game.
