New Play Control! Pikmin- Wii


Pikmin newbies and curious Wii owners alike should definitely take a look at New Control Play! Pikmin, especially if they have a craving for something a bit different. Veteran gamers on the other hand may be fine with their dusty GameCube copies, but...

New Play Control! Pikmin


Serving much the same purpose as the Virtual Console, only for games too large to fit on the Wii's internal memory, Nintendo's New Play Control! series lets gamers use the motion-sensitive Wii Remote to enjoy classic GameCube titles. The updated version o

Pikmin - New Play Control!


Pikmin - New Play Control! for Wii Review - The Wii Remote control scheme suits the game well and newcomers aren't likely to think they're playing a game originally released in 2001.

Pikmin: New Play Control


This colourful strategy game first made its mark on the Nintendo Gamecube in 2002 and has been ported to the Wii just a couple of months prior to its 2004 sequel receiving the same treatment. When a meteor knocks 'ickle Captain Olimar off course he...

Pikmin are colourful and cute ; Good controls ; Requires skill and planning ; Each Pikmin has their own strengths ; Good save system ; Challenge Mode: See how many Pikmin you can grow in a day

Needed a proper tutorial at the beginning ; The time limit is a bummer ; Fresh bugs appear when you land the next day ; Can be very frustrating if you've no patience

Pikmin is a frustrating experience but it's also a lot of fun once you know how to be a shepherd to your flock (it's a lot like Lemmings, but in 3D). As long as you have a large amount of Pikmin you can carry even the biggest objects back to your ship...
