Four-player multiplayer has never been so fun. In Splatoon you get to seamlessly switch between a person and a squid to execute cool moves and try to cover the battlefield with as much ink as possible. The more ink on the ground, the faster you get to move in this colourful, action-packed competition.

Best Nintendo Game Ever!

Yes, I know that's saying a lot, but that's just my opinion and I'm sure others have their favourite games. It's really fun and massively addictive (perhaps too much so). It's a definite MUST OWN, for anyone Wii U owner.

Well Made Game

Like everyone's saying: great controls, great concept, great soundtrack. But I wish local multiplayer had been expanded for at least 2 vs. 2. One on one just doesn't cover it at my place. Hoping for that feature in a future update, but I won't hold my breath.

Nintendo's take on an online shooter

This is a fun new IP for Nintendo. They have definitely put their style of game design into an online 'shooter'. Online play is a little basic compared to other platforms (no chat and lobby is a little different than I'm used to) but once you are in a match its a lot of fun. Controls are great and the soundtrack is excellent.

best game ever

I love the idea of the family shooter, and the squids.

Will probably be better after a couple months.

I'm not impressed when games are released half finished. Granted, Nintendo seems to be updating the game regularly, but having only 5 online stages with online mode at launch, a terrible 2-player local multiplayer, and a decent single player experience, it's hard to justify purchasing this at full retail price at launch. As someone who had this game pre-ordered at launch, I was disappointed when I went over to my friend's house and watched/played this game. it had a lot of potential and will probably become the game that I know it can be in time, but I returned my copy shortly after leaving my friend's house. TL;DR Wait for a sale, or for more updates to the game before purchasing. Not worth at the moment.

Good Buy

A+ Game concept. Surprising amount of strategy. Seems they will be releasing new features for the see-able future.

No Local Multiplayer

I admit that Splatoon is different from other shooting games and it's family friendly. It just lack the 2-on-2 local multiplayer that any family looked forward to which disappointed me personally. I suggest that you just wait for other upcoming nintendo games like Zelda and Starfox which is surely worth the price. By the way, this game has online 8 player game whish is cool but the queue is taking too long because only a few people play this game (as of now). So, you should probably wait before buying this game

Amazing concept that keeps getting better.

Who thought slinging paint would be so fun. It great competition and has great controls. This is nintendo at its best.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Great game

This game is new and fresh. It is not like other games and has no intention of being so. It is fun for all ages and makes good use of amiibos and future product support.

  • from Fredericton, NB

more fun than smash

soo much attention and detail went in to this, tho the controls are hard to get used to at first you can at least change them to make it more comfortable all in all fun game

  • from Laval, QC

Very fun game

It feels fresh, new and innovates on the genre. Gameplay is king with Nintendo and you can see that their attention went into that once more. That said, the visuals and soundtrack are also great.
