Critic Reviews for Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion

Octo Expansion throws plenty of both fun and serious challenges at you, between its expansive amount of levels and a multi-tiered finale that doesn't disappoint. These trials provide worthy so many challenges for those who wish to hone their mechanical skills for upcoming multiplayer matches, that I wish this had been Splatoon 2's base campaign all along.

Nintendo's trickiest game in years is also one of its most joyful.

A single-player expansion for Splatoon 2 may not seem a particularly appealing idea but this inspired slice of DLC expands the whole franchise in a number of surprising ways.

Fans of Splatoon's single-player content should look no further than the exceptional Octo Expansion

As cool as the "agent" and underground concept is, a lot of the aesthetic shift feels like a re-skin of sorts.

A nice improvement over the single player part of the game, but this DLC doesn't does enought in every other part of the game to be really important.

Octo Expansion does what it needs to by keeping Splatoon 2 fresh.

Overall, Octo Expansion is an absolute steal. At $20, you're getting a very creative and engaging campaign that expands the world of Splatoon 2 with diverse gameplay, although a small portion of these levels feels like monotonous filler. Luckily, the ability to skip them mitigates this issue, but does little to assuage the fact that the majority of the bosses are rehashes. If you were hesitant to jump in due to the price tag, don't be: Squidkids will find plenty of enjoyment on the Deepsea Metro.
