5.0 out of 5 stars A New Worthy Wii U Game August 4, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pikmin 3 is the latest addition to the series for the Wii U. The HD looks spectacular. I would recommend using the Wii remote and nunchuk to play this game. I tried to use the Wii U tablet but it was not as easy and more cumbersome. The Wii U tablet adds a little bit extra by displaying the map and logs on the screen. As far as gameplay the look and feel is just like the past Pikmin games. This time around you get 3 crew members that you can switch between to divvy up the work. The classic model of going until you run out of daylight still holds. The goal is to accomplish as much as you can in a day and sacrifice as few Pikmin as possible. Nintendo made another great addition to this franchise and it's worth picking it up if you own a Wii U.

Update 1: So far this game is really fun. Being able to split the crew up is really nice (I didn't play Pikmin 2 only Pikmin). The controls are a lot more intuitive now. I don't have to keep spamming A to pick Pikmin, I can just hit it once and they will carry on doing it. There is some subtle humor especially in the naming of the items you find. There are a few annoyances though. I keep running around and a few Pikmin will get caught along the path and I won't notice I lose them until they die at the end of the day. The "Go Here" function of the gamepad comes in handy a lot, use it frequently!

Update 2: This game is such a challenge. The path to take isn't always obvious and working with the 3 crew members can get interesting. You really have to watch your Pikmin and use the right ones for the right situations. Sometimes I have them all split up and I get the Pikmin under attack warning and am frantically searching for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God...Finally, a Wii U game worth the money. August 7, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I bought a Wii U during launch week and played it that weekend. Since then the thing has sat on my shelf collecting dust while I played my 360 or PC instead. Then I saw Pikmin 3...I've always heard good things about the Pikmin series, but never played any of the others. After reading the positive reviews on here and IGN, I figured "Why Not?" and went for it. This is the first Wii game aside from the staples of Mario/Mario Kart that I don't regret spending money on.

If you've read anything about it, you know the basics of the game. For me, its a fun balance of time management (need to get back to the ship before sundown), strategy (how do I solve this puzzle with the Pikmin I have...or do I need more of different types), adventure (exploring the planet looking for food, enemies, and treasure), and action (MINIONS....ATTACK!!!!).

When looking at the reviews I expected the battles to be pretty easy...and in general they aren't bad, but upon facing my first boss and losing every. single. pikmin. I had, I realized "hmm...there may be something to this after all." The battles aren't "Dark Souls", but they're challenging enough to make it fun.

I haven't tried multiplayer yet, but I play the single player with my 7 1/2 year old son...with him acting as navigator holding the game pad map and me controlling the on-screen goodness.

Bottom Line: If you have the money and you think you might enjoy it, give it a try...you won't regret it. After all, who doesn't want to assemble a minion army and send them to do your bidding?

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pikmin 3 is the first game in the series for Wii U. Originally designed for Wii but then upgraded for the Wii U The graphics are amazing. You will be shocked seeing them and the fruit is just beautiful to look at. As Another reviewer suggested using the Wii remote and nunchuk to play this game is recommended but you should use the Wii U gamepad as well with that. The Wii U gamepad offers extra info and can be used as a map and reference point in the game, should you get lost or need some guidance. Logs are also on the screen and provide much more info on the happenings in the game. I would suggest further using the Wii Motion plus as it doesn't need to be pointed exactly at the screen unlike the standard wiimote but either are good.
This game feels like a merger of sorts between Pikmin 1 and 2. It has a sort of time limit but can be worked around completely with some skill and eventually it doesn't become an issue leaving exploration open. You will want to explore every last bit of the game to see everything. As another reviewer stated, you have 3 crew members that you switch around and that makes the game more interesting for me. It made the gameplay more unique and open and also funny with the way the character interact each is different in their own way and its wonderful to see.

Also included is the multiplayer Bingo battle and while its not online, its still a fun experience. This mode is addictive and if you have friends over, is a must play. I played this with a friend and we had a blast.

The real beauty of Pikmin is that it accomplishes what most games try and fail to do. It lets you feel for the characters and know what is going on. And it does this without cut scenes, when a Pikmin dies, you feel it. Show Don't Tell is clearly done well here.

I had heard of the Pikmin series before, but I had never tried it. When I heard that Nintendo was releasing a new title in the franchise, Pikmin 3, I didn’t get very excited. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Like Pikmin 2, but now with deadlines and stress
They've ruined Pikmin with this game. Everything is now timed (including the boss battles), and your people are always on the verge of starving to death. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, fun to play
Player of the original Pikmin, I did like Pikmin 3. It's a bit childish but fun to play and relaxing from today's violent games.
