Gamegravy (Jun 04, 2015)
Splatoon is a breath of fresh air into what is otherwise becoming a quite stale genre of morbid, dark shooting games. Splatoon not only brings a fresh new take on the genre by adding vivid colors aside from red to the mix, but by having addictive family friendly gameplay and doing it in a way that will not only turn heads, but make you smile and laugh as only Nintendo can.
Nintendo Life (May 27, 2015)
In a sea of rock-solid single-player Nintendo experiences Splatoon is a standout as being an utterly sublime multiplayer endeavour. Everything is knitted beautifully and seamlessly together to create what is quite simply some of the most fun you can have online. Having been built specifically for online play it'll face the challenge of avoiding too many hiccups, but conceptually proves that the Big N is capable of keeping up-to-date with this particular modern gaming trend. The single player elements and the local multiplayer also present a way to enjoy the game when you're not geared up for the chaos that comes from fighting others online, and provide a useful reprieve if your internet cuts out. Splatoon is easily the freshest shooter in years and delivers superbly on all fronts; we have an inkling you'll love this.
Destructoid (May 27, 2015)
In some ways, Splatoon's online component is disappointing, and the lack of so many features will likely push other shooter fans away. But most of those shortcomings can be forgiven in my mind because of how damn fun it is. As a shooter it's refreshing, and as a 3D platformer it's up there with some of Nintendo's greatest creations. You'll quickly forget about the fact that you're playing Turf War over and over as you squid down an alley, leap across a gap, and shoot enemies in the air as you fall. All Nintendo needs to do is keep supporting Splatoon, because the foundation is fantastic.
Giant Bomb (Jun 01, 2015)
It's squid kids and ink blasting abound in Nintendo's exceptionally fun new online shooter.
The Jimquisition (May 27, 2015)
Splatoon may not offer much “content” out of the box, but it does offer enough reason to keep coming back to it, hungry for more. Despite a simple idea and a handful of maps, this eccentric shooter does – as the game’s irritating in-universe TV hosts declare – “stay fresh.” It balances strategy with anarchy in a riveting way, and nails the balance between instant gratification and heartbreak as players obsessively cover their world with color and have to watch as their hard work is consistently overwritten in a way that only makes one more desperate to hit back. Some of the technical aspects of online multiplayer could use an overhaul, particularly the lobbies, but otherwise it’s a smooth ride and a ton of energetic merriment.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (May 28, 2015)
Det Àr nog ingen överdrift om jag sÀger att Splatoon Àr Ärets fÀrggladaste spel och kanske ett av de roligaste multiplayerspelen jag spelat pÄ lÀnge. TyvÀrr Àr det fattigt pÄ innehÄll för tillfÀllet och det Àr ocksÄ den största anledningen till varför jag vÀljer att lÄta betyget stanna pÄ en stark Ätta. Annars Àr Splatoon ett riktigt underhÄllande och nyskapande multiplayerspel som jag gÀrna rekommenderar under de regniga sommardagarna.
Power Unlimited (May 27, 2015)
De core gameplay is vernieuwend en vermakelijk, maar wordt ook op vreemde manieren beperkt en is alleen online te beleven. Gelukkig is de singleplayer op z’n eigen, opzichzelfstaande manier ook dikke fun. Maar een nieuwe Mario Kart of Smash Bros is dit dus niet geworden.
4Players.de (May 27, 2015)
Liebe EntscheidungstrĂ€ger bei Nintendo - wenn ihr schon solch ein geniales Spielprinzip entwickelt, dann solltet ihr es auch mit mehr Ressourcen unterstĂŒtzen! Von mir aus hĂ€tte Splatoon auch erst zum WeihnachtsgeschĂ€ft veröffentlicht werden können, wenn es dafĂŒr mehr Karten, Modi und Optionen gegeben hĂ€tte. Im momentanen Zustand wirkt das Spiel eher wie ein Early-Access-Titel, der beinahe zum Vollpreis verkauft wird. So hat man die Chance vertan, das Spiel von Anfang an zu einem Klassiker zu machen und verwĂ€ssert die spannende Farbschlacht mit einem mickrigen Umfang und einer steinzeitlicher Online-Anbindung. Selbst Titanfall oder Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare waren zum Start um einiges ĂŒppiger ausgestattet. Trotzdem ist mir ein frisches SpielgefĂŒhl mit starken Macken deutlich lieber als der hundertste polierte Standard-Shooter. Außerdem unterscheidet sich der Einzelspieler-Modus stark genug vom Online-Gemetzel, um die Probleme beim Umfang ein wenig aufzufangen.
Girl Gamers UK (Jun 15, 2015)
Splatoon is bright, colourful, plays really well and is supremely family friendly. It is pure Nintendo, the Mario Kart of the online shooter world. Playing the game is both fun and addictive. However, there is a lack of content at launch and this fact alone may lead fans of the online shooter genre to abandon the game for something more substantial. Whether they will come back once the content expands, only time will tell.
In den Onlinemodi geht Splatoon flott die Tinte aus. Der farbenfrohe Kern ist die toll designte, aber zu kurze Einzelspielerkampagne.
The Game Hoard (May 15, 2022)
Dripping with its specific style as well as the beautifully colored ink that ends up coating everything, Splatoon creates an appealing little world even though the single player campaign mostly lightly touches on the potential of its shooting system rather than exploring it in a captivating way. Much of the enjoyment of the game comes from its multiplayer element though and the battle system allows players to consistently contribute even when they’re on their own, the territory control elements adding an interesting extra layer to team combat. Some ideas like the map rotation and loadout system do box in the online play, but the snappy matches make it easy to pop in with a new weapon if you do need to inject something fresh into some simple addictive fun.
Games TM (Jun 18, 2015)
What's here is undoubtedly clever and thoroughly entertaining, but it's also limited and given Nintendo's history with new IPs, be prepared for the possibility that its online community may have dwindled by the time the promised DLC makes up the fuller package envisioned.
FNintendo (May 27, 2015)
De momento, avaliar Splatoon nĂŁo Ă© tarefa fĂĄcil. O jogo jĂĄ se encontra num patamar interessante de qualidade mas o lançamento parece algo prematuro com a falta de alguns modos de jogo e a conclusĂŁo final tem de reflectir o jogo no momento em que Ă© analisado. O futuro vai oferecer mais e melhor conteĂșdo e daqui a uns meses serĂĄ certamente um tĂ­tulo obrigatĂłrio para a Wii U. Trata-se de um arranque promissor de uma nova franquia que oferece algo de diferenciador e suficientemente viciante para quem procura experiĂȘncias refrescantes no gĂ©nero mas peca por a experiĂȘncia para um jogador ser demasiado curta e por o online ainda ter pontos para melhorar. Uma boa proposta que pode atingir a excelĂȘncia dentro de alguns meses.
Nintendo-Online.de (May 27, 2015)
„Splatoon“ ist ein unfassbar spaßiges Spiel, das endlich wieder frischen Wind in das Shooter-Genre bringt. Das liegt daran, dass sich das grundlegende Spielkonzept nicht verbraucht anfĂŒhlt und immer mal wieder fĂŒr eine Runde motiviert. Die farbenreichen KĂ€mpfe sind sowohl einsteigerfreundlich als auch taktisch, sodass die Action nie zu kurz kommt. Leider ist der Umfang eine große EnttĂ€uschung, und wir können nur hoffen, dass die Versprechen eingehalten werden. Denn dann könnte „Splatoon“ tatsĂ€chlich der große Hit sein, den sich so viele Wii U-Besitzer gewĂŒnscht haben.

MAN!AC (Jul 23, 2015)
Spielerisch fetzige Multi­player-Farbschlacht mit großen Defiziten bei Umfang, Abwechslung und Bedien­komfort. FĂŒr Solisten nur nett.
games xtreme (Sep 11, 2015)
What you get, when you bring all of it together... Is a focused game with solid gameplay, that it feeds to you in fun-sized bursts, married to and enhanced by an aesthetic that's great and tragically rare. And a game that just continues to get more stuff, and continues to be worth its price, because Nintendo's not going to put out a sequel in a year. While I'm certain there will be a Splatoon 2 at some point, quite frankly, I don't expect to see it until their next console. So get in on this.
