So, there've been a few people on these boards from time to time saying that Splatoon 2 is a poor sequel. I'd like to know what the community as a whole thinks about this though so I've created a poll, and it's own thread.

This will be interesting to see roll out ... though most of the people responding will be N fans :P 

I voted for "it's ok but more could be done". Since "yes very mediocre" sounds like bashing the game.

It's the same game but better. The campaign final boss was underwhelming, everything else is an improvement.

Top 50 games as of 2017
Also, I made some music. It's really cool I think.

Definitely not.
New horde mode
New weapons and Subs
Tons of new clothing
New maps
New single player experience
That's as much a sequel as you can get.

I don't know, never played the original. Though from the looks it seems that it's extremely continuist.

Well it ticked every box I had for a Splatoon 2, so it was a pretty well done sequel to me.

I don't really think the sequel is mediocre at all. It's about the same level of innovation that comes with each new iteration of Mario Kart, and Smash Bros. A lot of things were changed on and improved. Specials no longer offer a huge devastating advantage over your opponent. Curling Bombs and Auto-Bombs add to the old grenade trio from the first game. The maps in the sequel are much better at forcing confrontations, and not giving Snipers an overwhelming advantage. Old maps that made it in have been improved on. Motion controls have been refined so much that S ranked players won't even touch regular analog anymore.

Add what Jason1637 said to this list too. It's a completely overhauled game IMO.
