Platform for Display: Nintendo Wii UEdition: Game Verified Purchase
There was a time when I was heavily into shooter games. I sunk hours and hours into Halo 2 & 3, then did the same with the first few Modern Warfare/Black Ops titles. After a while though, I got totally burnt out with these style of games. Not to mention I was tired of the ultra competitive jerks that inhabited the online lobbies. I probably haven't bought a Call of Duty or Halo game in the last 5 years.

When I saw the press about Splatoon it immediately peaked my interest. So now I've got the game and I have to say, I totally love it. Leave it to Nintendo to take a beat to death genre like shooters and inject it with personality and approach it from a new perspective. The change from being concerned with just killing the enemy to having to cover the ground with your paint just brings a whole new life to this game for me.

Many have complained about lack of voice chat, but for me it is totally fine. I don't have to deal with the ultra-competitive jerks that I referenced above. Some folks say that lack of voice chat prohibits planning with your team, but I haven't really found that to be a problem. These games are so quick and chaotic that I don't really see how you could plan much anyway. It's not like a tactical shooter where you have longer drawn out matches where you have to coordinate to take enemy bases or anything like that. And when I say chaotic I mean it in a good way.

The other major complaint this game is getting at launch is the lack of content. Yes, there is limited content, but the developers have promised a ton of FREE DLC, and it's all coming soon. So to me, this game was more of an investment.

Let me first start off by saying that this game is absolutely beautiful and a lot of fun to play. My 8 year old picked it up very quickly and loves it. I have also been playing it and must admit, it is an absolute blast. The colors are great and the maps are really creative. I admit that it is a welcome change to all of the First Person shooters out there. It is something that anybody can play and enjoy without having to worry about violence or blood.

The really fun part of this game is the 4 on 4 team battles (Turf Wars). I can honestly say that it is the best online gaming experience I have ever had. The games start quick, there is no lag, and I have not had any issues with games dropping in the middle. I really like the fact that there is no voice chat in the online games, I don't have to worry about my son hearing inappropriate words from other players. The games are quick and nonstop fun. There are a wide variety of weapons, so you can definitely pick your strategy based upon your weapon and the map.

I would have given this game 5 stars if it had a good option for 2-3 local players at the same time. My kids LOVE Super Smash Brothers and Mario Kart 8 because they can play with 4 people together (in the same room). Their friends / cousins come over and they have an absolute blast with those 2 games. I can not say the same for this. You can play 2 people together, but we did not find that game fun at all. It is a challenge to go around, finding balloons, and spraying them. Nowhere near as much fun as Turf Wars (where you are scored on what % of the map you spray in your color). This could definitely be done with at least 2 players (one on the game pad and one on the TV).

Last year, I saw a sarcastic tweet directed at the E3 Splatoon reveal from a pretty prominent geek journalist. "4-on-4 multiplayer? I bet those servers are going to be jumping!" Of course, if that guy had played Mario Kart 8 online, which was already out at that point, he would have known that things were already looking up on Nintendo's online front. But I digress.

After dozens of online rounds and several dozens of Miiverse interactions, not to mention the excitement of checking out daily gear and map refreshes, I can officially say that, yes, these servers are jumping. Not only that, but I can say that with Splatoon, Nintendo has confidently asserted their dominance over most of their peers when it comes to online gaming.

I say this as a seasoned veteran of all the major online shooters. Halo, Call of Duty, Battlefield, and a ton of other, less prominent games are all tucked safely under my belt. A good portion of my life has been spent in some form of online arena, pumping anonymous people full of virtual lead. But games that have provided the constant stream of dopamine like Splatoon does have been few and far in between. In fact, I might contend that none of them have managed to excite and surprise as much as this one. Which is funny, because for starters, it's barely even a shooter.

See, as you might have heard by now, in Nintendo's first blatant pitch at the online set, you take the role of both a kid and a squid. They're called Inklings. Now, on top of being squid-kids, Inklings are both aggressive and fashionable in equal amounts . You deck yourself out in hip clothes, then buy guns that shoot obscene amounts of ink and try to lay claim over different areas of turf by painting them. If anyone gets in your way? You take them out.
