I want to really like this game but I’m increasingly eh on the whole thing. The big thing is the controls. I’d rather just play with the joysticks but the gyro controls mean that I may as well be using a gamepad to play the PC version of Overwatch. The issue is that none of the gyro control options actually work for me. I can use the pro controller but the game won’t let me use the right stick to move the camera up and down so I’m stuck with a default resting position for my thumb that is basically useless and a controller that is too big for the quick movements needed to make it work. So that leaves the joycons but then I’m stuck making so many movements with my wrist that it starts causing me pain after a few matches. So options that are nice in theory are too limited to work for me.
Then you have a bunch of smaller stuff like not being able to change loadouts between matches without leaving match making, all of the gear in every mode being different is a bummer, the uber capitalistic theme of the game is meh (There is no ethical turf war under squid kid capitalism), I’m not super into the way the only canonical black women in the game is hyper sexualised and from the race of octopus people who are all almost entirely portrayed as villains, the way they try to let you look cool and then tie perks into all the gear with no easy way to swap them also sucks, and it’s basically just Splatoon: Again! none of the first games issues are really even addressed here and for $60 they really should have been.
I want to like the game but right now it’s death by one really big cut and a whole bunch of smaller ones
