One of the more divisive aspects of Nintendo's upcoming ink-em-up Splatoon is the integration of motion controls into the core gameplay. Considering shooters have been comfortable with simply using two analogue sticks simultaneously to move and aim this addition initially seemed a little gimmicky and unnecessary to many.

After getting to grips with the Global Testfire demo some fans were still clamouring for Wii U Pro Controller support or at the very least a way to turn off the motion controls that they couldn't wrap their heads around. The Wii U Pro Controller is not supported in the game – bar the 1v1 local multiplayer – but the ability to turn off these motion controls is, so how does the game perform without them?
