Critic Reviews for Splatoon 2

An improvement in nearly every way on one of Nintendo's finest games in years, Splatoon 2 is only let down by a lack of big new ideas.

There's a lot to love in Nintendo's second iteration of its quirky shooter, especially the way Splatoon 2 emphasizes splatting the ground just as much as it does inking your opponents.

It barely classifies as a sequel, but even if you've played the original this is still one of the best online shooters ever made.

Splatoon 2's formula no longer feels original, but it looks great, its controls are tight, and there's enough variety to give you dozens of hours of multiplayer fun.

What the first Splatoon did well is still built into the sequel's barnacle-encrusted DNA, and now it's on a system that you can stuff in your bag or play on the couch. It's baffling that Splatoon 2's best feature is held back by a frustrating lack of proper online support, and in many ways, it's the same game with some new tricks. But there are still enough imaginative additions for anyone who played the first game to death, especially via its strange, captivating supporting cast. It may be much more of the same, but the same is still pretty fresh.

Splatoon 2 is a fresh, vibrant sequel that introduces smart updates to the original's unique formula.
