Summary: There are times in life when I have to pause, if only for a moment, to contemplate whether or not my neighbors just heard the (in retrospect very loud) noises that escaped my mouth during a particularly involved gaming session. This can usually be attributed to a short temper, but for a game like The Splatters , it's not always moments of frustration.
Excerpt: I thank God every single day for planting me in the video game industry. I get to see and play so many innovative titles. I marvel on a weekly basis at the intelligent designs of so many video games. I never know what new interesting idea will cross my desk, but I am always willing to see it. The Splatters is an amazing Xbox 360 downloadable game.
Summary: Overall " The Splatters " is a charming game which offers a fairly basic and dated gameplay style. If I were to sum up the overall package I would say that this is a title worthy of a play through but don’t expect it to offer long lasting appeal as the levels of repetition and lack of multiplayer mean that it soon loses its charm.
Excerpt: As anyone with a iPhone, iPad or any other smart phone can attest, taking cute critters and slamming them into solid objects has proven to be a winning combination...in the mobile space. But does it work for a console game? The Splatters aims to find out, with its physics-based puzzle action in which colorful (and suicidal) semi-solids blow themselves up in the most fantastic ways possible to net the highest stage score and hopefully earn a place on the leaderboards.
Pros: The cute splatters, Chaining combos for huge score bonuses, The Master Shots mode
Cons: Combo Nation’s lack of challenge, Every level looks and plays the same, Paying ten dollars for it
Summary: THE SPLATTERS is a visually pleasing game with a certain amount of originality to make it interesting, the game play is fluid and apart from a few minor control issues makes for a fun few hours of gaming, with plenty of levels and challenges to keep you wanting more, I think the addition of SPLATTER TV will be popular with the XBOXLIVE® community.
Excerpt: In games, a protagonist’s ability to win usually comes from staying alive to accomplish goals. For splatters, it’s different: their victory is linked to death. These gelatin creatures are funny, silently acknowledging you from the television screen with dopey grins on their faces, knowing their end is just a few controller inputs away. They’re more than ok with this. In fact dying gives them purpose. Dying with a certain pizzazz, that is.
Conclusion: You can create unique gameplay moving through the levels, getting high scores and show everyone your style on splatter tv area. I still don’t quite know what they are, but when the splatters soar and splat over the gobs with some shakes it is really magical to look at.

Fun physics-based puzzler about flinging blobs of paint.
Common Sense Media
8 June 2012
Summary: Parents need to know that The Splatters is a physics-based puzzler where players throwing balls of paint around the screen. There’s not really any violence, though players may be tempted to anthropomorphize the game's googly-eyed splatters and feel some compassion for them as they are splashed against walls and objects (even though they don't seem to mind at all).
Excerpt: Microsoft Game Studios sent over a code for an odd titled game “The Splatters”. I had no idea what to expect, then as the game starts and it helpfully shows you what to do in this goo flying puzzle physics game…I have to say, who knew playing with mutated phlegm could be so much fun?
