well, it's a neat and novel game. probably more novel if I played with its original gyro controls, but I used a control hack on an emulator. it can be tedious to get gold medals, but it's too simplistic and unrewarding not to. the art style is a little garish to me.

it's interesting but, to me, it doesn't really work. the card swiping choices mechanic fit much better thematically in the original game, being a monarch sitting on a throne making decisions. here I suppose you're still sitting on a throne—the captain's chair—but it still seems out of place for the sense of adventure they're going for. it all feels pretty lackluster.

I see why this is the benchmark for splatoon campaigns. the characterization, plot, and setting is interesting and compelling. the gameplay is well varied and challenging.

it's rare these days for a game to make me feel like I'm in it, exploring a fully realized environment, but this game elicits that feeling.
