    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.

    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. Expand

  1. Pikmin 2 is also due a New Play Control! reissue this year, and it's a better game in every respect. It's longer and more sophisticated, with more varied Pikmin and enemy types; it has co-operative and competitive multiplayer; it has randomised caves with finite Pikmin numbers, ideal for the game's challenge mode; it has no time limit.
  2. A cynical reissue to exploit the game-starved hardcore on Wii? This is far too complicated for your mum to play. Still, it's a genuine (prequel to a) classic.
  3. It's not as good as its sequel but Pikmin is still a great game and is essential to those who haven't played it.
