Hands down one of the most frustrating games of all time.
Lag against Japanese players.
Lag.
Lag.
Hits that fail to register.
Limited level rotations. Imagine playing the SAME level 5 times in a row.
4v3 handicap matches are either pathetic drubbings or takes the shine off a win.
No communication, imagine your goal is to get a device to the enemy base and 1 of your team is off rollering far corners of the level!
FTR, I had to replace my gamepad because of this game.
Only Mario Kart Snes was more frustrating than Splatoon.

There's a gem in Splatoon... underneath a mountain of flaws.

It's fair to say I hate this game.

Hands down one of my favourite games of the last decade. Still playing it, love iy

Great game, reminds me of playing CODs a few years back, just jump in every now and again and have some fun.

Yes, I know exactly where you are coming from. Drives me insane. Nintendo customer service were beyond useless and refused to even answer my questions.

​I feel your pain, there's a great game at the heart of it all but it feels so rough around the edges.
I don't know what your internet speed is at, m8, but ring your ISP and ask them to increase the Upload speed, that helped a little for me.
Painting the level requires quite an upload speed.
Also, have a wired connection, there's a little usb-Ethernet cable for the wii u, costs about £6.
And good luck if you choose to stick with it.
I can see you already know of Nintendo's legendary customer service.

Completely agree. It's a good first attempt but hugely frustrating. Haven't played it in months and have no interest in the sequel unless they fix those issues.

Wii U feels like a beta HD Nintendo console for Nintendo so it's possible that they're just figuring out how it all works when they finally settle down with the next home console that won't be a log of turds.

Details of post are all wrong though. I justed downloaded testfire and it's already running and will go until 1/09.

First game, quick entry and no japanese players1!!??? Highest score ever! Excellent accuracy and I really thought this was how the game was supposed to be.

However second game, lag and got disconnected which has never happened before.

Any way, game away. Wii U so disappointing will probably sell up after testfire is over.

It's even worse than I first thought. More lag or just slow to update what's on screen. This is a problem with the game in general, especially when high Japanese pecentage, at least for me. Occasionally, have a perfect game against japanese.

Just put protective bubble around myself then got shot through it and killed. Very slow updating on screen!

Let me know if it's the same for any of you.

Worse than the actual game. I find myself firing paint but nothing comes out. Sometimes the paint never arrives.
