Revelations 2 uses its horror theme to encourage thoughtful play. Ammo is scarce, so players need to be thoughtful about inventory management. Players will have to solve puzzles to get through some of the encounters. Sometimes, it is wiser to sneak past enemies than shoot them. See More
Raid mode is back, and it's so much better than the first game. Raid Mode is a run-and-gun game that can be played either solo or cooperatively with a friend; you get to blast your way through enemies in short stages and upgrade your equipment on your way. You also level up in Raid Mode - you obtain a set amount of skill points and can use them to customize your character in order to make your Raid Mode experience more fulfilling. You can also unlock several characters to play as you go through the episodes of the campaign and earn achievements. See More
The campaign isn't the only draw to the game, Raid Mode adds dozens of hours of content for you to play
The hordes of enemies can be challenging to mow down in order to reach objectives around the map while defending your base, and that's where the different combat styles come in to make things easier. Mastering the different classes will give you an edge, like the constructors can quickly build a shield to defend your base from a sudden horde of enemies, and the ninja's boosted mobility and deadly melee attacks.

There's a lot to upgrade, such as weapons, traps, your base, and much more. These unlocks are gated behind other progression trees that use an entirely different form of experience currency, mixing everything together in a hodgepodge of systems and menus that don't mesh well together. After a certain point, gaining rewards after unlocking upgrades results in fewer returns for the amount of time it takes to reach the next progression goal. Lootbox availability becomes scarce after a while, slowing progress to a crawl. See More
While all the building and demolition options the controls might look complicated at first sight, you'll soon notice that the building itself is quite basic since there are only four major blocks you can use. Using these four major blocks in different combinations opens up many possibilities for all sorts of forts to build. Players can choose to keep things quick and easy with simple bridges in the air to traverse from point to point, or they can go much more in-depth to build impressive fortresses to defend from enemy attacks. You can keep expanding on what you build, growing it over time with stronger walls or scattering traps to cover your blind spots. See More
The battle royale mode of the game is available for free, capitalizing on the latest surge of the genre's popularity. In Fortnite's battle royale mode, players have unlimited freedom to build their own bases and explore while defending themselves from other players or actively hunting them down. See More
Most modern shooters are all about lethal weaponry, gore, death, and getting the most kills, but Splatoon 2 steps away from this formula. You use paint guns and brushes to color the map and the opponents, but it's never about going just after the opponents. Even if you manage to take someone out, they're never killed, but turned into paint, which is a natural defense mechanism of the game's playable race – the inklings. As a result, Splatoon 2 is a friendly, but at times highly competitive, battle that's well-suited to any member of your family. See More
Despite being the most popular multiplayer mode in Splatoon 2, Salmon Run is on a schedule, sometimes having gaps of up to 2 days between each appearance. It's not as bad as it was upon release, but it can still be quite aggravating when you can't play Salmon Run when you finally have the time for it. See More
While all multiplayer levels have gorgeous visuals, featuring very detailed urban landscapes, their most noteworthy aspect is their adequate size. They're just large enough that a match doesn't feel like a claustrophobic shootout that ends in less than a minute. And they're small enough that you encounter opponents very often, reducing time you spend purely on running to get back into action. It's a design choice that keeps the gameplay focused in most cases, making it a more enjoyable experience as a whole. See More
Each multiplayer match in Splatoon 2 lasts only about 3 minutes, with about 1 minute of wait time between each match. This can be very useful in cases when you have some spare time, but can't afford to play a long match. It's a nice change in an era dominated by competitive multiplayer games that force you to commit more than 30 minutes per match. See More
Splatoon 2 has its own horde mode called Salmon Run, where you and up to 4 other players fight off waves of Salmons while collecting their golden eggs. It's fairly challenging, requiring you to properly utilize your weapons, learn salmon types and their abilities, and understand how to best cooperate to survive till the end. This can lead you to a lot of intense, sometimes unfortunate, and sometimes even funny moments throughout a match that might keep you wanting for more. See More
Even though Splatoon 2 rewards skillful play, having accurate aim is not as important as it is in most third-person shooters. This is mostly because it's a game about territory control, requiring you to recolor areas of the map to win, so you can contribute to your team's victory by just shooting the ground and walls, which is something most players can do without any practice. As a result, Splatoon 2 can be more accessible and less stressful for beginners and players that aren't very good at aiming, making the gameplay more enjoyable in the long run. See More
