5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed June 10, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game in a local Big Box store (I'm not sure why it was out a day before the release date, but I didn't stop to ask questions) and have been trying to fight the urge to play it nonstop. I haven't completed it yet (I just reached the 30% benchmark towards the goal), so keep that in mind. So far, this exactly what I was hoping for in a Pikmin sequel!

Like the last game, Olimer / faithful Pikmin followers spend most of the game wandering around the island looking for objects. This time, instead of spaceship parts, they are looking for items of value to pay off the debt Olimer's company incurred while he was stranded. So far, I've seen everything from a battery to bottle caps to parts of an old school Nintendo controller. Like last time, he gets the Pikmin to carry said objects to his ship, where they are cashed in, kind of like a pawn shop. The game play is almost identical to the first game, so controlling the characters is intuitive for those of you who played Pikmin 1 for Wii. You still have a day to get through as much as you can, and risk losing anyone left behind.

Here are the biggest differences I've noticed so far:
1. Louie (his assistant) is with him, giving you two main dudes the Pikmin will follow. You have the option to keep them together, or control each separately. Initially, I thought this was pointless, as you can only control one at a time - whatever guy you don't control will stand wherever you leave him. However, this started becoming useful when I needed to separate Pikmin by skill/color. For example, I could have Louie stand behind with a purple group while I took all the red Pikmin ahead to clear areas with fire. Once that was done, I just had to switch back to Louie, who took the purple group to meet up with me.

Every so often, there is a game that comes out that hits the sweet spot in gameplay, strategy, and charm where real life hours feel like minutes as you are lost in an innovative world that is destined to be explored. Pikmin 2 originally hit that sweet spot in 2004 and after 8 years still has found a way to bring the magic back through the Wii. As an original player of the Gamecube game, I'm happy to say that whether you're new to the series or a vet who played it all those years ago, this is a can't miss title that for $20 has more gameplay and innovation than many $60 titles out there today. Considering that this game was selling for $40-$80 on Ebay a month ago, this is an outstanding deal.

PREMISE: Pikmin 2 is a real time strategy game with puzzle elements that can be picked up by all ages (some reading required). The purpose of the game is to control/direct these small creatures called Pikmin to explore lands, find treasure, and save the company. During your adventures you come across a variety of different Pikmin that have different strengths and weaknesses. Utilizing each Pikmin's strength and understanding their weakness is key in solving the puzzles and defeating the enemies in this innovative and charming world. There are monsters in the world that you use the Pikmin's strengths to conquer. In addition, there is a day/night cycle that adds an extra layer of challenge to manage your time.

Here is a snapshot of the Pros and Cons.

PROS
+ Immersive Gameplay: Pikmin 2 does a fantastic job explaining how to play within the tutorial level and will have you immersed in the world in no time. What keeps this game going is the sense of wonder around every turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Addictive. An Interesting Game. September 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Never played any game in the series, so I wasn't sure what to expect.But after playing the game for about an hour, I was hooked.

The story:
You are an alien working for a company that is in financial trouble. Your boss sends you out after fiding out that a small item you brought back to your home planet, is worth a lot of money. So off you go to look for more treasure.
You land and meet these interesting creatures called "Pikmin" whom will follow you and do whatever you ask them to do, from attacks, to gathering valuable objects. Your ship is equiped with an AI unit that helps you keep track of what you collect each day and aslo helps you navigate the terrain. Each night, you and your pikmin must return to your base, because night time means danger, and so you must act quickly or face the consequences. The story kept me playing without stopping, I was hooked. The story is unique and interesting in every aspect and it's fun to see things from the Pikmin's perspective.

The graphics:
Honestly speaking, not so good, but depends greatly on the type of display/TV you are playing on. On a full 1080 HD display, the game looks dated and pixelated. But on a standard TV with a 480 resolution, the game looks great, or at least better than the full HD. I didn't really mind, but it is something you should know, in case you are looking for "eye candy". The maps, atmosphere, creatures, etc. are all well done and full of colours, making the game charming and apealing to all audiences.

The Controls:
Easy to use. You need the Wiimote and the nunchuck. The nunchuck is used to move your character and the wiimote is used to point and throw your Pikmin when attacking or gathering objects. Even with 50+ Pikmin following you, controlling them is easy.
