It is simply an all around better game. Plus it a lot easier and less violent. COD is rediculously hard. Especially the online multiplayer. Obviously Splatoon is better. And COD isn't even realistic. COD is also too skill related to be a good strategy game. It is way out of it's catagory. It should be a shooter game but isn't. They lie to consumers. For all of these reasons Splatoon is very superior to COD.
