Rated 10 out of 10 by ZeldaMarioPokemonGamer EPICNESS
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.

Pikmin is a classic brought back to life from the GameCube and put on the Nintendo Wii. The designers did a great job except for a few control differences. Otherwise, the game is the exact same but with better graphics. The game involves producing Pikmin and killing off the enemy bugs to retrieve Captin Olimar's Ship parts. You have 30 in-game days to do so which range from about 15 minutes per day. In the 30 days you have, you need to find all the 30 parts in the 5 different locations. Each new day you will always encounter something new. Weather it be a new pikmin, a new emeny, or new boss. This game is full of surprises with addicting gameplay that is surly worth the money. Grab this game if you like getting your moneys worth in buying video games. Because this game won't let you down.
Rated 9 out of 10 by A Kirby Fan An instant classic brought back!
Originally "Pikmin" created in 2001 for the Nintendo Gamecube. The game itself it brilliant in almost every way. You play as Captain Olimar, the little astronaut with the huge nose, who crash landed on a mysterious planet due to a meteor striking his ship, "the Dolphin". You must find 30 missing pieces of your ship within 30 days before Olimar's life support fails. To get the pieces, you'll need help from the Pikmin, which there are three species of, red, yellow and blue. Learning to control the Pikmin and ordering them to fulfill certain tasks can become a breeze in no time, but as the adventure becomes more difficult, you may have to think outside the box sometimes. The graphics are certainly greater than those of other Game cube games, especially when you take a look at the backgrounds, the detail on the environment is certainly a pleasure to look at. The time it may take the average player to finish the game may take around 10 hours of gameplay. Pikmin screamed Wii controls, so the controls were added. The new controls are very simple, you probably won't find one thing to complain about the controls. Adding wii controls seemed to be a thumbs up to me, and made the game Pikmin an even better game than it was back in 2001.
Rated 9 out of 10 by LordSparta501 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
Rated 0 out of 10 by godzillalover54 Pikmin Wii - Fair. . .
No game is perfect, but this one is almost near fun. it looks fun and if its a copy from the game cube version i really don't want to try it out but i pre ordered it just to see if it is any better than the first one. the first one didn't seem all that fun and the second one was even more unappealing! i think id rather like mario tennis for the wii, if you like or are in the middle of liking this game just look at mario power tennis for nintendo wii, same price, better game! i think i might order mario tennis, either that or Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for nintendo wii.Overall: Id rate it 6 out of 10 ; 60%
Rated 9 out of 10 by StopRevewr Pikmin Wii
Pikmin for Wii is a port of the strategy/adventure game for Game cube. Story line: Olimar is a small big-nosed astronaut who crash-lands on a foreign planet inhabited by little onion-looking creatures who Olimar names "Pikmin" after a food on his planet. Gameplay: The gameplay is not extreme but it will keep you trying to get a whole army of pikmin to explore this exotic planet. Large creatures will try to kill your pikmin and will get in the way of your exploration. By flinging your pikmin at the creatures to get them to demolish them and a little purple spirit will float out. You will find parts of your ship which you collect but you need a certain amount of pikmin to pick it up and bring it back. By carrying dead carcasses, flower numbers,and big number coins to the pikmin's weird ship thing, you earn more pikmin that yo have to pick out of the ground. Go figure huh. Controls: The game flaunts its new Wii remote controls that I think are simple to use. At the beginning of the game the controls are explained easily. Game control age: (age at which these controls are understandable) 5 year olds and up should be able to control this game easily. Animation: The big world seen through the eyes of a small astronaut is portrayed incredibly with nice graphics. Review score: I give this game a [8.5] fun and full of an excitement-around-the-corner experience I extremely enjoyed this game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kinokid 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.

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!
Rated 8 out of 10 by PsychoticYoshi2009 Not as good as the original.
The company that made Pikmin had a good idea to resurect this gamecube classic. What isn't fun about capturing small, innocent creatures and forcing them to kill other small, innocent creatures? Nothing. For one reason or another, the enemies have a strict diet of Pikmin. You can be the most technologically impared on the planet and play this game perfectly. The controls aren't quite as good as the original gamecube version. The only reason you may be picking this game up is if you've played Pikmin I and II before. It will feel akward becuase in the gamecube version, you have your control stick on the left side of the controller. That will be an inconvinience for left-handed players. It has a medium difficulty becuase you can force small creatures to kill large creatures, but you will probably lose a lot of them in a large-scale assault on a boss enemy. The graphics are good for IT, but not very good for other games. The animation is very good. It has a steady frame rate. The only sound you hear through the entire game is this really annoying "PWAA!!!! PWAA!!!!!" and "CHOMP! CHOMP!" If you can even hear the music over the noises you will notice that the music is just a loop. The story is that you are playing as this strange, giant-nosed astronaut named Captain Olimar. You're space-ship loses parts, and your off to bend small creatures to your will, so that you can sit back and watch the souls of your Pikmin go up to heaven. It seemed sort of convinient because it was in development a few months after Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 8/10. Not bad. Try a little harder next time.
Rated 9 out of 10 by smgery why this game is my favriote
no, don't criticize me as I played the gc instead of Wii, but this game in my opinion is the best in the franchise. although yellows are under powered unlike 2 or 3, it is still the best game along with the best final boss ( as the 2nd and 3rd games final bosses are to hard for me) it is always a great game and as the best launch title for the gc.
