Splatoon review – is Nintendo’s online shooter on target? | Metro

Nintendo’s first attempt at an online shooter is just as thrilling and innovative as you’d hope, but for now at least it does have one flaw…

Nintendo are stupid, obstinate, and brilliant. They’ve always been like that of course, their genius for video game design matched only by their inscrutable business decisions. More often than not their seemingly self-defeating plans have paid off, sometimes spectacularly, but we cannot begin to understand what they’re doing with Splatoon. This is one of the best online shooters we’ve ever played. But what it isn’t yet is a complete game.

The story is too old to be commented.
