Pikmin Review

 

Nintendo brings Pikmin to Wii with a brand new control scheme.

Fun for all ages. While there's nothing new to speak of, fans of the GameCube version may enjoy a revisit; however those who missed Pikmin the first time around will get the most bang for their buck.

The Wii remote and nunchuck are extremely well suited to the new play control system; gotta love the price

The time constraint system is still there, discouraging a leisurely exploration of each level and limiting the game's replay value; the pikmin often behave more like lemmings, with no regard for their safety

RTS for the masses.

Pikmin Review (Wii)

 

Pikmin was one of the best and most loved games to grace Nintendo's Gamecube and you now have the opportunity to enjoy it on your Wii. You should be made aware that it is very much the original game. It comes with new Wii controls, a new way to load...

Pikmin is an awesome game, even more so if you never played the GameCube version. If you never had a GameCube, this is a must buy for any Wii owner. Those who played it already will still have a blast going through it again.

Nintendo seem to be re-releasing a lot of GC stuff instead of creating new games, which is a shame. Pikmin is a decent little strategy game and if you've never played the GC version, this is worth a go.

Boring and annoying

 

I'm going to be the odd one out and say I didn't like this game. (Pretty much everyone here and on the net has given it 8-9 out of 10) I've given this game 1 star purely for the originality and graphics really. I've never seen anything quite like it,...

this was my first time playing pikmin and i must say that it surprised me , the new controls as it said on the box were very easy to pick up and in no time mastered , the story mode is a change of pace to most as your set with 30 days to repair your...

Product Specifications

The GameCube classic remade with updated play controls for the Wii. Straight from the creative mind of Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto, Pikmin is an inventive action-strategy game featuring incredibly life-like environments inspired by Mr. Miyamoto's own garden in Kyoto, Japan. Players control a spaceman named Captain Olimar who has crash-landed on an unusual planet. The goal of the game is to help Olimar collect his vessel's lost parts, which have been scattered all over the planet. Luckily for Captain Olimar, the planet is inhabited by strange little creatures, called Pikmin. Pikmin are plant-like life forms that come in three different colors red, yellow and blue. Each type of Pikmin has unique strengths, which Olimar must use to his advantage. Red Pikmin can withstand fire, blue Pikmin can survive in water, while yellow Pikmin can destroy obstacles by using bomb-rocks. Players can control the Pikmin sprouts individually, in groups, or in one large Pikmin posse of 100 creatures. Pikmin begin their lives as leaves, but they mature into buds and flowers if you leave them in the ground after sprouting. Accomplishing goals in Pikmin isn't all about hauling items from point A to point B. Pikmin sprouts can also be directed to perform other tasks like building bridges, destroying walls, carrying bombs and - of course - fighting. Directing Pikmin to battle other creatures is one of the most entertaining aspects of the game. The natural enemies are generally many times larger than the Pikmin, so they have to attack in large numbers to be successful. Pikmin is a very unique type of game, which you have to play for yourself to appreciate. Its fresh approach and imaginative presentation makes it a most refreshing game to play.
