  1. The most important thing is: Pikmin is worth playing. It's simply indispensable in any fan collection and a sample of the different way Nintendo makes its games. On the other hand, if you've already played it fully on GameCube, maybe the new version is dispensable

    This is a fantastic game. It is a remake so how can anyone criticize it on having bad graphics or no new content or for not being Pikmin 3? New Play Control Pikimin is better than the GCN Pikmin. I can see now why people claim that the Wii has no games rated highly on this site and its because the critics are bias against the Wii and closed minded. Full Review »

    Fantastic game, not just a port, this version allows you to restart your day or go back in times a few days back. So the obnoxious time limit is not as grueling at all here. On top of that the wiimote seems to have been made for Pikmin, and this is coming from someone who does not like the wiimote one little bit. A wonderful first installment for one of the best series Myamoto and Nintendo ever created. Here's to many more Pikmin games. Full Review »

    Ah, Pikmin. one of the best RTS series of all time.
    it's so great. it's mixes fighting and scavenger hunting so well that My brain should be
    splattered on the wall from an awesomeness explosion. Why that hasn't happened yet, I'll never know. Full Review »
