There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But luckily, this is the first experience I've had with the game, so my impressions are overall very positive, if number of playtime hours displayed on my Switch's profile are any indication, which would be 70 hours within just a month getting the game, and I don't see myself taking a break from it any time soon. I'll make a list of pros and cons, starting with the cons:
-there really should be more modes than there are. What is there is apparently fun enough to drain 70 hours of my life throughout the course of a single month, but with only four modes (five if you include Salmon Run, which is only available on specific days at specific times), it really does make you wish for more
-the single player campaign is fine, but there really is a lot more potential for it, given that the core gameplay mechanics are so unique. And locating the actual levels in each of the five worlds is irritating
-there are a lot of different loading screens in the community area, whether you walk into a shop, walk into the lobby, walk into the Salmon Run waiting area, or equip new gear. A loading screen pops up for everything
-the game does not do a good job of acclimating new players to the different features, and things you can do. There are some things I just recently found out about (after playing for a month), such as all the different things Murch can do for you, like ordering specific gear items you like that you see players in the community area wearing, or scrubbing slots, or collecting ability chunks, etc. That's probably my fault for not going out of my way to talk to the NPCs, but I still wish there had been a more comprehensive tutorial available somewhere (maybe there is, I just have to go out of my way to find it, I have no idea. Most informative and useful things to know in this game you need to go out of your way to find out about, which is frustrating)
-that freaking "talk show" that comes up EVERY time you turn the game back on, and is completely unskippable, wasting 45 second of my life on information that can me conveyed in three seconds, makes me want to rip my hair out. What the hell was Nintendo thinking when they made that unskippable, and why the hell has there not been an update allowing you to skip it after almost a year since the game was released?
-there isn't an option to save replays of matches. The screenshot button allows you to record up to 30 seconds of footage, but there's no way I can know something awesome is going to happen before I start recording. Really wish they would include a replay feature.
-I am not convinced it is conceivably possible to win a match if one of your team mates dips out last minute. One time I got stuck on a team of three and we made it within four percent of winning, but that is the closest I've ever seen it. Typically it's just a slaughter. It isn't as if their team has an edge over you, and you're simply fighting with the odds stacked against you. Nope. You're just done.
-no split screen competition of coop. I'd love to play it with my wife, but we'd have to get a second Switch and a second copy of the game, which is a shame.
All that being said, this is still some of the most straight up fun I've ever had with a game.
-kids that are also squids
-game mechanics are super unique
-matches can be ridiculously tense
-you play as kids, and squids
-there may be a lack of modes, but the sheer amount of mileage you get out of such few modes is amazing
-customization options are expansive, but it never feels as though other players have an unfair advantage over you because they have better gear
-First I'm a kid, then I'm a squid, then I'm a kid, then I'm a squid
-all of the control options feel good, whether I'm using joy cons, my pro controller, or handheld mode
-no lootboxes, no paywalls, no "pay to win" features. You buy the game, you play the game, the end
-so many colors
-there are kids and there are squids and the kids are also squids
My biggest complaint is that there is no split screen. I saw this complaint a lot and I did buy this expecting no split screen. As I played it more, I was more perplexed on why there was no split screen since even Mario kart deluxe has a 2 player mode split screen online.
I give it a 4 because I'm sure most parents want to play this with their kids and are expecting split screen and I don't see why they couldn't do it; however, other than that. The game was a lot of fun. Even the first player mode was a lot of fun, will be looking out to play the dlc for the game.
Turns out its a region locked game and now I can't play any of the DLC for the game as its incompatible with my real location.

Y es que, en la tradicional fórmula de Nintendo, no necesitas ser un experto para poder jugar Splatoon. La mécanica del juego se centra en pintar todo lo que puedas, por ello, los novatos pueden centrarse en pintar y ser apoyo, mientras que los veteranos se lanzan al frente de batalla para exterminar a los jugadores del equipo contrario. Cada segundo cuenta y cada mancha que avientas cambia el resultado de la partida.
Si a eso le sumas un excelente gameplay y un diseño de arte fabuloso, tienes aquí un juego que desborda creatividad por donde le mires.
Existen varios modos de juego, pero ninguno te tomará más de 3 minutos completarlo; así que tengas 2 horas libres, o sólo 15 minutos, puedes aventarte una partida sin problemas.
Desde su lanzamiento en Julio, el juego ha estado recibiendo actualizaciones constantes, y casi cada mes agregan nuevos mapas, armas y accesorios, por lo que es un muy buen momento para hacerse de este juego.
Este juego esta diseñado para jugarlo en linea, tiene algunos modos multiplayer pero el core esta en el single-player.
Lo compre dudoso de si me iba a gustar ya que no tuve oportunidad de jugar la version 1 (de Wii U) pero este juego me encanto, recomendado al 100%
Aparte que con amazon prime me salio un poco mas barato que comprarlo en una tienda fisica y lo tuve el dia del lanzamiento sin problemas.
Aquí mis opiniones de sus opciones de modos de juego:
Honestamente aún no termino el modo historia pero puedo decir que el obligarte a usar ciertas armas la primera vez que juegas ciertos niveles le sube su "intensidad" y además te obliga a salir de tu zona de comfort.
Puede hacer los niveles del modo historia mucho más difíciles cuando no tienes experiencia con el arma pero es entretenido.
Salmon run es, personalmente, mi favorita modalidad. Es intensa y te mantiene activo contra AI.
Lo demás son cosas previamente vistas y no las visito mucho que son las turf wars y los modos ranked. Todo muy entretenido, particularmente por que usualmente no eliges a tu equipo y tienes que adaptarte.
