Splatoon 3 review | GadgetMasti

Review information

Running time: 16 hours
Platform: Nintendo Switch

Splatoon 2 was – in all respects and intents – little more than a port from the original Wii U squid shooter to the Nintendo Switch. The single-player campaign was a marginal improvement over the first game’s glorified tutorial, but the multiplayer suite still didn’t allow you to team up with friends outside of the ranked game. And while the newly added Salmon Run was tons of fun, it was pinched by arbitrary time constraints.

Until the release of its excellent Octo Expansion campaign, Splatoon 2 felt more like a tentative step forward where a real Squid Surge was needed. Splatoon 3 is the ‘eel’ deal by comparison.
