The Start Of A World-Wide Sensation!
Pikmin came out for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2001. For the Gamecube, it had superb graphics! Recreating this title on the Wii was a wise move by Nintendo. This gives you a better feeling of playing the game by letting you move and aim more freely with the Wii remote and nunchuck. This game was probably one of the best games I have ever played! It is great for those who love strategy games. I can't stop playing it, and I know you will not be able to put it down either!
This game is one of my favorite video games/video game series of all time. The controls are almost perfect, but sometimes I would have trouble hitting small enemies with the pointer, but other than that I think it's better than the gamecube version. The game is rather short, but it's set up in a way where you can compare your results to past playthroughs, and it's like trying to get the 'high score' in terms of how many pikmin you lost, how many you sprouted, and how quickly you get all 30 ship parts (the fastest possible is 9/30 days). My biggest problem with this game is the amount of glitches. Sometimes when facing larger enemies, pikmin would get get pushed into the ground and were killed. I knew this was a glitch because the pikmin didn't have their ghosts pop out of their bodies as they die. That sounds kind-of gruesome but it's really not. Nevertheless, it is a great game and is worth $20.
really good game addicting has a really good story controls are great and its very unique and one of a kind
Easy to Play Hard to Pass
I really like the game play it just like the first and original. The Wii remote sounds and effect is a great add to the game but I agree with others the first game is harder back then it was more difficult and more fun but, I must still admit this a great edition to there trilogy remastering this game was a good and fun idea. I could imagine some don't agree but from my opinion and point of view it is a great pass time video game and fun for all ages and that's what the Wii stands for and so I give this game an 8.5 there something I don't like but it is till great I greatly recommended this game to beginners and hardcore gamers as well its a great sage to Nintendo
gamecube is so much better than this one its such a copy off because gamecube is harder and the harder the better
game the A very hard game indeed.
well first off if you dont like games where you are on a time limet, your wasting your time with this game the whole game is on a timer but dont get me wrong if you like a time limet then this is the game for you. Well the graphics are very colerful very smooth nothing fancey but its perfect for this type of game. I must say this is a very hard game if your looking for a more layed back game I think you should go buy pikmin 2 for the GC
but all aside I think this is a must have for the wii or GC. Its fun, hard, in depth. Great game.
Better than the original
This is the same game but you can move your whistle around easier and the game itself is much smoother. Just having a bunch of pikmin with you makes you feeling like you can do anything. Killing enemies is fun, and collecting ship parts is fun as well!
This Wii version can be kind of finicky with controls if you can't hold the Wii remote in one place on the screen, but the game's great!
Pikmin is a good game i found out about it form a friend.
this is the gamecube version with improved control
this is the exact same game as the first gamecube game, but with improved throwing. if you enjoyed the first pikmin game, you might want this.
