The Paw Press Game Review 

Entry #5, Splatoon 2 

By: Alden Mcgrath 

Splatoon 2 is a third person shooter video game with a comic twist: instead of bullets or rockets, this shooter has paint. Yes, you heard me, Splatoon 2 is a game where you are using paintball guns to take down opponents if they’re octopi, salmon, or other players. There is a wide range of personalization for your squid kid (yes, its called that) like shoes, shirts, pants, weapons, and even your hair style. Even if you can’t play online there is a story mode where you are trying to take down the octarian (octopus) menace  and as you progress you get increasingly better weapons, but the levels get harder as well. If you are allowed to play online then you can play 4-on-4 team battles called turf war where you try to take out opponents and cover the ground with paint and whichever team covers the most ground with paint, wins. Another online version if you don’t like fighting people is called salmon run, in which you team up with up to three other people and fight those brutal salmon with arms untill you run out of luck and die.

Splatoon 2 got a 86 on my test and was quite deserving of its score. It has two awards, The Game Award for Best Multiplayer Game and The Game Award for Best Shooter. It was released in 2017 and was created by nintendo, but this great game has a major drawback, it’s only available on switch! If you have finished story mode and are bored with playing online there is an expansion, but it costs money (not a lot, it only costs $15). In the octo expansion (catchy name) you are an octarian instead of a squid kid and you are stuck in an underground subway trying to get out.

I hope my review made you happy! Talk to Ms. Boswell if you have any ideas. See you next time, by for now.
