A brief review of Splatoon 2
Splatoon 2 is a game made by Nintendo. You can play this game with the Nintendo Switch. This is a game where squids evolve into inklings that are half human and squid. With two genders you could choose either male or female. During the choosing, you can also change the eyecolor, skin tone, hairstyle, and types of pants you want your inkling to have. I feel like the goal of the game is to Create a plot or a story that no one ever thought of. Who would think of a character that are squids evolved to humans? Also I think their other goal is to show people how they are impacting the world negatively.
You will start this game with a tutorial which guides you on how to control and play the game. The inkling can submerge into ink and go thru metal fences in squid form. Making them move faster unnoticed. After the tutorial, You will be transported to the main lobby Inkopolis, where you can shop for clothes, shoes, weapons, and hats. I think that the tutorial is really helpful because, you wouldn’t understand the game in the first place without it.
Splatoon’s normal game mode is story mode, where you will find a agent called Marie who is an idol in Splatoon 1. And you go thru a investigation with her to a mysterious mission.
Now to the online modes. The first is called Turf War. This game mode can be played with no limited levels. The objective of this game is to fill the whole terrain with your teammates ink color. And the team that covers the most wins. The next online mode is Ranked Mode. This is a mode for levels higher than 10. It doesn’t matter what level you are, but it matters on how much game you win with your team. There will be a bar telling you what Rank you are in. For starters you will start in C- Work your way up to the X Rank. In this game, you will have a different objectives; each unique and exciting to play. I really recommend doing turf war until your level is about 30 because the system will put you with people on levels 60 or 71 which makes the game more amazing. On my opinion I like the Ranked mode because it is more enjoyable than Turf Wars. Turf Wars is just covering the place with ink. But in Ranked mode, you are not only covering but revealing your true skills in the game.
Splatoon is a wonderful game that has excellent graphics, story, music, and entertainment. I seriously recommend this game to the peoples who like real life graphic, mystery, and never ending fun. This game could seriously affect the humans view toward the world right now, as some of the story mode maps reference some of the environmental damages the humans are doing to the sea today.
In 2018, a new Splatoon 2 expansion came out, called the Octo Expansion. The expansion includes new characters (called octolings), new story mode, and new songs. When you download the expansion and play the game, the exact time you spawn in the main square, you will see a dialogue appear saying, “Uhh… is it just me, or does that alleyway seem a little... fishy? Yeah, definitely something fishy going on over there. Probably best ignore it.” Whatever you do, don’t ignore it! You have to go there to start the Expansion story mode. I won’t talk about the story mode because this is a expansion you yourself have to experience. It is mind blowing, this is the most worth it expansion you can ever buy. I recommend this expansion to the players who love dystopian, fantasy, and mystery genre games. Also for the people who read the Leviathan series because the setting of the game kind of matches the book.
