Definitely destined to be a classic. The gameplay is very fun and creative and easy to pick up. Collecting collectibles is very addictive and it is entertaining to watch the little Pikmin work together to carry the different collectibles back to base. The graphics are astounding and make the world feel so real and bursting with life. The music is wonderful and sometimes nostalgic as there are some remixes of music that was featured in Pikmin and Pikmin 2. The story is great too and really makes you feel like you need to get fruit juice to survive and care for the Pikmin who help you. The environments and their creatures are weird but in a good way, since they are supposed to be out of the ordinary because you have crash landed on an alien planet. The atmosphere of the environments is very immersive too.The controls are fine and I don't have trouble with using the Wii U Gamepad, like most reviewers do. I actually find that aiming with the analog stick is precise and easy to do.
Pikmin 3 is a lovingly-crafted game with great gameplay, great graphics, great sound and great... well, everything in Pikmin 3 is great!
