Popular online gaming website IGN have decided to revisit Splatoon since its received a number of updates with new content since it launched back in May. The publication previously awarded the game a 7.9 which is fairly on the low side for such an entertaining title. However, they have re-evaluated their review due to the frequent updates and have decided it is now 8.6/10.
Nintendo’s take on the third-person shooter is refreshingly original, with lots of impressive tools, skillful mobility, and creative maps to play with. Matches are consistently fun and tense, and the mechanics feel simple and fair enough that almost anyone can contribute positively. Not having voice chat is a bummer, but the great modes and maps feel polished and kept me claiming turf for hours
