Another Great Sequel to a great series!
I loved Pikmin 1 and 2 on the good ol' Nintendo Gamecube. When Nintendo first announced Pikmin 3 for Wii U I was really excited, and couldn't wait. However all the delays did not help the console but that's not the point. The point is if you played the past games this game does not ruin the past. It really instead adds to it, making it harder than 2, but still somewhat easier than 1. The graphics are amazing, probably one of the best on Nintendo's new console that really shows what it is capable of. The story is confusing at first but really takes off well once you get into it, and really has a lot more to it that reflects on 1 and 2 as you go further. The gameplay is slightly different from the originals, mainly just a new lock on system and some different controls, but still is great gameplay that does reflect some of the originals. All in all, Pikmin 3 allows the series to be called "A Great Trilogy". If you haven't played 1 and 2, they have special Wii editions to pick up for like $20 each that are just as good as the Gamecube ones, and Pikmin 3 really is a great way to continue a great series. The way the game is too, it seems to be open for another game if Nintendo wanted to make a Pikmin 4, which would be awesome. All in all, great game, definitely worth the money.
Best Pikman So Far
Looks great, sounds great, plays great, feels great. They even included the purple and white Pik-a-ta-men. Only gripe is no Co-op play in story mode, but they make up for it with some of the best multiplayer modes.
The only thing i don't like about this game is the time you have to do things on a day (game day). But everything else in this game is awesome.
Yes hardcore gamer
I never played the series before and now that I picked up Pikman 3, I am addicted to it! Addicted to call out from work and play all day! I am 23 years old and pikman 3 is enjoyable! I enjoy fighting the boss and on the side, take control of thos little pikman! I command them to take fruits, dead bugs back to the ship as if I were a captain lol! It is fun for all ages! Exclusive for the Wii U, a must have/own! It will not disappoint!
The Best Wii U Exclusive Yet!
Pikmin 3 is an excellent game with addictive gameplay, incredible HD graphics, and a decent storyline by Nintendo standards. My only gripe with the game is the lack of real voice acting, but that's a common problem in all Nintendo games. This is still an amazing game.
I was completly blown away by this game! This game is so amazing. This is my first pikmin game and it was AMAZING!!! But if it takes another 10 plus years to make this game's sequel, I am gonna be mad.
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.
One of the best games ever created
My friend got Pikmin 3 and we are both new to the Pikmin series, we've only seen walkthroughs and Pikmin 3 looked fun and had good reviews so we decided to get it and try it. BEST GAME EVER. THIS GAME IS FOR EVERY GAMER WHO WANTS TO HAVE FUN PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. The only problem is no purple pikmin, but anyone can live through that, considering how great the game is. Nintendo has outdone themselves.
What can i say?
This game is simply beautiful. from the graphics to the gameplay. i loved pikmin ever since the first one came out, and now this is finally here and i cant stop playing it. amazing for any type of gamer, both challenging and relaxed, this game is a definite must have for anyone with a Wii U.
Best Pikmin Yet!
It's a really great game! The graphics have TREMENDOUSLY improved since the gamecube. I really love the mulitplayer, It's fun with friends. One thing I don't like is how you have limited food (kinda like breathable air in pikmin 1), except in this case, you can get more food pretty easily so its not a big deal. You can also replay days if you screw up, and you get your food back then too. The new pikmin are really cool, I especially love the rock pikmin because they do tons of damage when they are thrown. I would highly recommend this game, and if you own a deluxe console I'd recommend buying it off the eShop. You get 10% back with the promotion (which is 599 points), which you can then use on future purchases.
