    Pikmin 3 Deluxe is a better version of one of the best games ever made - one of Nintendo's crowning achievements, even. Whether you've played it before, or are lucky enough to experience it for the first time, you owe it to yourself to play this irrevocable environmentalist masterpiece.

    If you count yourself among a smaller audience that, for example, knows what an RTS or a Metroidvania is, this is a great game. It does exactly what it sets out to do, and it does it well, but it will feel overwhelming to those that have signed on during the Switch era.

    Pikmin 3 Deluxe is another excellent entry in Nintendo's charming and under-appreciated franchise. The main campaign is enjoyable enough on its own, but the numerous additions and improvements are just icing on the cake.

    This is a solid port of one of the best Wii U games. It’s a shame Nintendo didn’t try to enhance its visuals or fix some issues, but if you missed it on their previous console, now you’ve got a second chance.

    If you’ve yet to jump into Pikmin 3, then the Deluxe version is a great way to experience the charming game.

    Pikmin 3 Deluxe is another comprehensive re-release with a welcome multiplayer component, but it’s a shame Nintendo didn’t polish it to the fine sheen that it deserves.

    Nintendo’s overlooked Pikmin series shines as the latest Wii U Port on Switch, though the core gameplay experience is largely unchanged.

The enhanced graphics on the switch as well as the additional content make it a very worthy improvement from the previous edition. Does justice to the Pikmin legacy and I truly hope that this is the start of more Pikmin content on the switch. Expand

    Although I originally thought the download price on the e-shop was expensive ($80 where I come from) in my opinion, Pikmin 3 Deluxe stillAlthough I originally thought the download price on the e-shop was expensive ($80 where I come from) in my opinion, Pikmin 3 Deluxe still manages to be worth the price. The game itself is relatively calm, but it still packs action within itself to deliver the full experience. The game, for one, has stunning graphics; as well as having a wide variety of enemies, fruit and plant life that you can look at in the games piklopedia (a feature added in the deluxe version not in the original Pikmin 3). It also has enough Pikmin variety to shake it up, although it takes a while to find the next Pikmin species, and it sometimes feels tiresome when you have to play the same level repeatedly. Overall, a fun experience that really can't be improved on in my opinion, definitely give it it a shot! Expand

    才100多人评价,皮克敏也太小众了,可能因为玩法太特殊了,“任天堂的即时战略”。
    当初玩了试玩版觉得还不错就预定了,德国预定送了一套软磁铁。
    才100多人评价,皮克敏也太小众了,可能因为玩法太特殊了,“任天堂的即时战略”。
    当初玩了试玩版觉得还不错就预定了,德国预定送了一套软磁铁。
    游戏属于“伪即时战略”,战略部署、资源收集,还挺考验操作和配合的。操作方式略多了一点,关键时刻容易手忙脚乱不知所措,总体还是非常容易上手,但是很难成为高手。
    画风依旧是老任的可爱卡通风格,但是最大亮点是物资都是实物模型,不是卡通建模,比如柠檬就是现实中柠檬的样子,这跟皮克敏小人的卡通模型对比下来冲击还挺大的。
    游戏模式有剧情模式、任务模式、对战模式(宾果对战)。
    剧情模式非常好玩,分为主线和支线,个人觉得支线剧情更好玩更特别。
    任务模式是在限定时间内达到任务要求,不同的完成时间对应不同的成就,从铜牌到白金,大部分任务都很难,很难达到白金,要求对这个图非常熟悉,而且操作和分配非常熟练才可以。
    宾果对战没有玩,因为需要两个人分屏玩。

    缺点:整体缺少游玩的动力,通关剧情模式后,任务模式打了十来关就没有动力往下打了,一是难,二是玩来玩去这个游戏的核心内容其实就很少。
