A few fishy elements aside, Splatoon 3’s Side Order DLC is a delectable roguelite expansion with outstanding original enemies and crazy new abilities.

Another fun piece of Splatoon single-player DLC, with an interesting mix of third person shooter and roguelike that would've been much better as the main story mode from the start.

The Side Order is an expansion that no Splatoon 3 fan should overlook: the roguelite format drastically improves the way you enjoy Splatoon single-player. It's very balanced and progress is satisfactory without being frustrating, although you have to adapt to change. It seems like a small thing for DLC, but it's very replayable.

Side order is a surprising expansion pass with addictive and challenging content thanks to a complex roguelike-style system. Everything is balanced and its replayability is guaranteed, being able to spend many hours to unlock all its objects. Highly recommended.

Splatoon 3: Side Order can be a fun and interesting take on the rogue-lite genre, but there's simply not enough here to sustain everything the game wants you to do. There's too much repetition here, and as a result the DLC leaves me feeling unsatisfied.

Splatoon 3: Side Order is an excellent addition to Splatoon 3, and helps to give it a stronger identity over its predecessors. Whilst we'd like to have seen more variety in the stages and objectives, the overwhelming number of options on your weaponry and how you upgrade them makes sure that things don't get too repetitive. We found ourselves repeatedly coming back to try just one more run which turned into five, so that should speak for itself. Splatoon fans rejoice, it's another goodie.

Is Splatoon 3: Side Order DLC Worth It? - REVIEW - YouTube video thumbnail

Splatoon 3 Sider Order dares to do something different, but it comes at a cost. While some will enjoy the Roguelike characteristics of the game, others might be put off by how "light" they really are and the frustration that sometimes comes from it.
