Honestly, Splatoon 2 can be basically summed as "like the first one, but with more"
It's not really a bad thing. After all, why fix what isn't broken? But it does mean there's really no point in trying the original when you can do more or less the same with 2, but with more modes like Salmon Run (which is really fun, btw), Clam Blitz and the monthly Splatfests.
The stuff that's changed is basically some much needed changes anyway, like removing the Damage Up ability or rebalancing the abilities and specials.
I see.If you could pick it up for $20-30, maybe.
Story mode is good, the specials all have a different feel, and though the stages are largely much plainer (and have mostly been ported to 2) they're still fun.
If you only wanted to pick one, though, pick 2. It exceeds the original in almost every way, and has enough control differences that going from one to the other messes you up a bit.
From the sounds of it so far, the sequel is largely an improvement over the first. I'm not that surprised, I was aware that the game is build off of the first one's resources, but I still wasn't sure about the content differences or online modes.
Thanks for the help, guys! So far, I'm leaning towards getting just Splatoon 2.
