Product Description

Show your true colours

Splatter enemies and claim your turf as the ink-spewing, squid-like characters called Inklings in Nintendo's new third-person action shooter game for the Wii U console. Challenge your friends in chaotic four-on-four matches, in which the goal is to get your ink on as many places as possible and claim your turf, all while strategically submerging yourself in your team's colours and blasting your enemies. This is a colourful and chaotic online third-person action shooter, exclusively on Wii U.

Features:

  • Team up and take on other teams in an action-filled battle to cover the level with as much ink as possible. Spray walls to access hard-to-reach areas.
  • Covering more territory with ink unlocks powered-up super weapons that can be used to attack rivals or cover more turf.
  • Strategy is everything. Defeat enemies to splatter them in an explosion of ink, covering more turf for your team. But choose wisely: Players who only go after the enemy might find their turf redecorated in their enemies' colours.
  • Refill ink tanks, hide from opponents, or move faster by turning into a squid and diving into the ink with the tap of a button.
  • Select between multiple control options on the Wii U GamePad controller, including using gyroscopic controls to look around, allowing for better aiming and control.
  • Hop online and battle in four-on-four matches.

This is the most original game I've played on the Wii U by far! Unlike most shooters, Splatoon is not about shooting people; other players act as tough obstacles for the player to counter, instead Splatoon is about covering the arena in as much icky goo as possible. This is SO much fun!

I've played virtually every shooter out there; Call of Duty, Halo and so on, but Splatoon is the only one that is a pure joy to play. Each weapon is so unique - each one completely changes how you play the game! And thanks to Nintendo's biweekly (I think) DLC that's seemlessly added, Splatoon isn't going to run out of steam anytime soon! I love playing online just to unlock new stuff with my money :)

The single player campaign is extensive - around 20-30 missions, each unique and can teach you strategies that can be brought into multiplayer.

The only downside is the lack of 4-player local multiplayer. *sigh* if only, if only...

If you've seen this game in action and like what you see - DO NOT HESITATE! You'll get every pound of your money's worth if you like shooters.

See you online! 1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a turf war!

Style Name: Plus amiibo Squid bundle Verified Purchase
To the people who are complaining,
It's not Amazon or Nintendo hiking up the price but re-salers (Aka Scalpers). I managed to get the game for only £39.85 and had it shipped via Prime and I'd say it was actually worth the £39 I got it for.

The first part is the story, simple but fun.
The gameplay used throughout is it's gyroscope features which actually make aiming pretty fun but you can turn off this feature in the options menu on the touchscreen. Splatting bad guys has never been so much fun before and the colourful environments make the game feel that much cheery, however, the missing voice chat feature is a bit upsetting and it can lag on the main hub station but both of those can be easily fixed in the upcoming updates Nintendo has planned for the game.

Boss battles can be very easy but fun and the story missions are great, also, the amiibo that comes with the game unlocks a challenge mode in which you can unlock new costumes for your Inkling which is pretty awesome as with this amiibo you can get a full mech suit which just looks epic!

So please, don't be trusting those negative reviews because they mainly hate on the game because of the price, if you can get it cheaper else were then I'd recommend it because for only £29 for the standard edition, it's well worth the price.

Style Name: Splatoon Squid
The challenges included in the Squid amiibo are quite easily the best of the three, they are for the most time 4m timed while a few have limited ink stages so it makes you think to be sure when and where to use the ink you have left.

In total there are 20 challenges to go through (inc. boss battles) as for the stages they're nothing new, just with different rules and settings to abide, plus being that you're using the Squid amiibo you can swim as much as you want throughout the stages regardless if you've painted it your colour or not. That's how badass it is (the green squid diving is just stunningly awesome as for its visual)!

As for the figure, it looks all right for a squid (I just wanted its content more so than the figure as I solely borrowed it). Almost forgot, you can unlock a costume of Squid in Yoshi's Woolly World which is basically all green though the eyes wear some dark makeup.

I'm sure this is a good game if we could play it. Seems to rely on a very fast broadband connection which we don't always have. The game stutters and stops. In fact the whole Wii U experience seems to be based on this. Think we have been unlucky and had I known would not have purchased either. We manage to run all other computers and consoles, just not the Wii U and definitely not Splatoon. The whole Splatoon experience is based on playing online so I would avoid it if you don't have the fastest connection speeds.

Style Name: Plus amiibo Squid bundle Verified Purchase
Splatoon is an awesome game, Nintendo has clearly taken the time to consider how to develop a new franchise for the Nintendo Wii U and it has delivered something very very special.

Firstly the game can appear very limited initially with a handful of weapons and levels, but Nintendo has supplied owners with a stream of free updates granting new weapons, accessories and levels at no cost! The game plays out extremely well 2 teams fight to control as much turf (land) as possible in a very short time limit, the aim of the game is not to real kill the other player but to get as much of your teams ink on the various walkways and paths.

The control scheme uses the gamepad motion in order to aim and it takes a short while to get use to this configuration. It works and on rare ocassions it does sometimes glitch but the majority of the time is perfectly fine. I have now invested nearly 80 hours into the game and continue to find it very rewarding.

I first saw this game advertised on TV, and I rarely find any interest in ads I see for games or anything, because they're all the same - deep, gravelly voice telling us that "this summer.....so-and-so rip-off, cliché game is coming out" but this one just showed a fun, bright, colourful game that looked fresh and new. I learned more about the game watching gameplay on YouTube, and it looked as good as the ad had displayed, and in the end, I bought it myself to try it.

I was not disappointed! This game really is new, fun, fresh and original. It is very simple, and the controls and mechanics do not have a learning curve of any sort; the only thing that can take some getting used to is using the motion-control aiming, which you can turn off anyway.

There is not much else to say about it because it is so simple, but basically it's really fun and addictive, and very cool to look at.

The only cons in my opinion are that the weapons all feel a bit limited; you only ever get one speciality for each one, so a gun with massive range, but low power and fire rate, and any other combination of these in any order. The special and sub weapons that I really like all come with weapons that I hate, so I have to stick with weaker weapons to get the "package" that I want. However, the way the abilities work and the way you can complement your gear set is pretty good as it lets you be better at what you choose as your role in the fight.

Occasionally, the game encounters major lag spikes, and you will be shooting an area without anything happening sometimes for up to 30 seconds at it's worst, but most of the time it's all good. Other side effects of this are being killed long after evading an enemy, which can get a bit annoying and confusing.
