by Trixer50210 Perfect addition to the series
This game is amazing perfect graphics and it makes a perfect addition to the pikmin collection. Given the story is a little short it makes up for it with the good story and just all out nice gameplay changes and the replayability. 10/10 would buy again!
Rated 0 out of 10 by DKandDK Great, but I have a few concerns
First and foremost I must say I liked the original Pikmin, and the second one was one of my top 5 favorite games of all time, so I am excited to see that they are making a third. The long wait means that they must have taken their time into making pikmin 3 a great game. For pikmin fans out there, they removed purple and white pikmin and exchanged them for two new types of pikmin. The original three colors are still there and I am unsure about bulbmin, the pikmin that look like bulborbs, wether they are still there. my two concerns are the 99.99$ price which is outrageous, but i am guessing that gamestop put up on their website as an absolute maximum price that is likely to decrease to around 60$. My second concern is how gamestop categorizes the game as puzzle and cards, which is not like the other two pikmin games which are strategy games. Overall I will proabally get this game at the wii u launch and if the price of a game decreases i would proabally get new super mario bros u as well.
Rated 9 out of 10 by denimdenimdenim Good Story, Better Presentation
Pikmin to me is one of Nintendo's more obscure successes in gaming, with the key word being "success". Pikmin 3 on the other hand is pure gold. The cartoony character designs mesh well with the adorable Pikmin creatures and the realistic, stunning graphics in the landscape. Now this game seems easy at first glimpse, but right when you think you have everything under control the first boss of the game comes and punches your naive little face. The challenge is great, the world is fantastic, the main characters are favorable, and the new Pikmin types just make sense. Try the game when you have the chance because everybody should have a little taste of the genius that is Pikmin 3.
Rated 2 out of 10 by namelesshonor Incredibly Short
It takes just a couple hours to beat. After waiting for years for them to make another one, they come out with this?!
Don't get me wrong, it's fun, but it's only gonna last you one evening, if that.
Super dissappointed with the length, and there really isn't any draw to playing it over again.
All the puzzles are super dumbed down, so you practically walk through the whole game, as if it's on easy-mode.
Also, the ending sucks.
Super lame, would not recommend.
Rated 6 out of 10 by jrjohnson44 Not the old Pikmin, sadly
I am a big fan of the first 2 games and I was disappointed by this one. The controls are sloppy, terrible and lack the fluidity of the first 2 games. They take away the most effect ability from the first to games, the C-stick command to control pikmin, in exchange for an unreliable lock on/charge combo that's the same button as dismiss. I felt more rushed with this game too because you were constantly trying to complete some story task instead of just being able to enjoy he game. The game days are shorter as well which makes completing multiple tasks nearly impossible even with 3 characters this time. They changed all the Pikmin proportions for doing things too. The AI at times is great but when it counts it's terrible. It was very short too, the second game is still much much longer with this one comparable to the first. They also do not stick to the cannon of the first games and lacks an enemy data base or info which was fun. It was like having to relearn an entire game system, play it if you own a Wii U otherwise don't worry about it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by bunnyboy4ever Best game ever!
This is my favorite game of all time! I got for free with Mario Kart 8 & I absolutely love it! People don't think Wii U is next gen this game begs to differ! The story is really nice & this is much more story based than the last two games. You control the Red,Yellow,Blue & the new Rock & Winged Pikmin. The rock & winged pikmin are much better than UP purple pikmin & OP White pikmin which only appear in mission mode. Which is just so addictive & it has DLC & you get three of those DLC missions for free. Beating this game as quickly as possible with as many Pikmin as possible adds more replay value along with mission mode. & it has multiplayer mode with two different objectives, either Bingo Battle mode which returns from the last game, & capture the victory macaroon which plays like capture the flag. my preferred control scheme is the Wii U game in Off-TV mode. seeya

i had zero intrest in the wii u for a long time. then once i saw pikmin 3, it just looked like pure fun. i watched the ZackScott playthrough and was imediately hooked. i knew i had to have this game and a wii u. once i got it, my expectations were smashed as i played it. its one of the few games that made me sad to beat, but overly joyed to play again.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NintendoHistory Pik-up this game
Pikmin 3 is incredibly fun. Your planet is starving and it's up to Alph, Brittany, and Charlie to save your planet. You'll have to command an army of multiple types of Pikmin to battle, collect fruit, and beat obstacles that stand in your way. It's all about strategy as you'll be switching between captains to complete multiple tasks at the same time. Did I mention that the graphics are mind blowing, BECAUSE THEY ARE!!!! Pikmin 3 also comes with mission mode and multiplayer mode. In mission mode you'll either have to collect fruit, battle enemies, or defeat bosses in order to get high scores and test your Pikmin skills. In multiplayer you can compete with friends in capture the flag or beat them in getting the highest score. Overall Pikmin 3 is an amazing game that everyone who owns a Wii U must get. It is worth getting a Wii U if you don't have one already.
