    As my first Pikmin experience, I really enjoyed Hey! Pikmin for a variety of reasons and found little wrong with it. Whether you have played a Pikmin game before or not, or are just looking for a fun game that’s not too easy and certainly not too hard, give this one a go. I believe a demo is still available from the eShop at the time of this writing as well.

    Hey! Pikmin is a small and pretty simple game, but it is a beautiful experience that every fan of this series should enjoy.

    A good pastime with which to spend a few hours, perhaps under the umbrella.

    Hey! PIKMIN is not an exact conversion of Pikmin to the 3DS but there's nothing wrong with that. Quite the contrary, as this sidescrolling adventure with its own characteristics turns out to be a solid tribute to the main series with its fun and involving adventure and the always heartwarming sense of humour and delightful Pikmin creatures.

    Hey! Pikmin is very clever when it comes to level design and introducing new Pikmin, but offers too little challenge. Even the boss fights are easy, which is a pity for a game that looks and feels this terrific.

    Hey! Pikmin feels like a distraction, a time filler until the next 'proper' Pikmin arrives on Nintendo Switch – whenever that may be. While often delightful and frequently pleasant, its simple charms can't make up for extreme simplicity and a turgid pace. One best suited for Pikmin purists, if such a breed exists.

    An uninteresting and boring platform game, which even the army of cute pikmins can't pull from the below average score.
