The Story
Stranded in a vast and strange world, Captain Olimar faces a daunting challenge. When he crash-landed on this alien planet, the pieces of his ship scattered far and wide, and it would be a near-impossible task to recover all of them by himself. Luckily, he has been able to befriend curious creatures he calls Pikmin. Only with their help — and your quick thinking — will he be able to collect all the pieces of his ship and finally make his way home.

Key Game Features:

  • Befriend the odd alien creatures known as Pikmin and seek their aid in your quest to return home
  • Use your Wii Remote to pluck up the Pikmin and put them to work
  • Command your own Pikmin army of up to 100 creatures at once
  • Enlist the help of multiple Pikmin to overcome predators, demolish barriers and haul critical ship parts
  • Coordinate the actions of the Pikmin to help you collect the missing pieces of your ship
  • For 1 player
Redesigned for the Wii Remote
Action and strategy combine in fun and innovative ways in New Play Control! Pikmin. Point your Wii Remote at the screen to pluck the Pikmin and guide them in the tasks you assign them. Command up to 100 Pikmin at once to take on big jobs, including swarming predators, demolishing barriers and more, and coordinate the creatures' actions to help you find all the pieces of the ship before it's too late. They're small. They're plantlike. They're Pikmin! And they can be a space traveler's best friend! Stranded on an unknown planet, Captain Olimar must enlist the help of these native Pikmin. Together, they must rebuild Olimar's spaceship and defend themselves from attackers. Time is tight. Cooperation is key. This innovative action-strategy game is unlike any other game you've ever played, and with remastered Wii controls, it has never played better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Aside from new controls, nothing new to see here. March 10, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you haven't already played Pikmin on the GameCube, this game is an excellent opportunity to catch up with a great game. If you've already played this game there is literally nothing new here besides the controls. No new extra modes, no multi-player, no extra levels, no noteworthy graphical upgrades. Just new controls.

For those of you who haven't played the game yet, it is a very solid game. To sum it up simply, you take control of Olimar, a diminutive space explorer that crash lands on an earth like planet filled with hostile bugs and critters. You control a small army of Pikmin that do your bidding by fighting and carrying stuff for you. Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin have different abilities which you must take advantage of as you traverse the terrain of each of the levels. In typical Nintendo fashion, there is a great deal of exploration where you can see an area of the game but can't get to it until you unlock new abilities which require you come back to previous levels. Gameplay is broken into thirty 15-20 minute "days" in which you frantically try to cram as many accomplishments as possible into the short time frame. It all works very well, although I wish the 30-day limit wasn't in place. I found Pikmin to be quite entertaining 8 years ago, and still like it to this day.

THE NEW CONTROLS: The new controls work extremely well. There isn't any pointless remote waggle and the pointer controls work pretty well.

GRAPHICS: Aside from progressive scan support and 16:9 wide screen support, there isn't anything new here. The artwork was gorgeous years ago, but nowadays it's only pretty good. Textures look low res but the art style makes up for the deficiencies.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Play Control Pikmin March 15, 2009
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an excellent game for those who missed the game on the GameCube (Like me). People who already have it for GameCube will not find anything new here. The motion controls work really well with this game. The only thing kind of frustrating is the camera mover, but what game doesn't have that problem? Here is a rating on each area of the game on a 1-5 star rating system

Graphics: ****
The graphics for this game were considered top-of-the-line 8 years ago, but are still pretty good today.

Gameplay: *****
This is one of those games that are great in gameplay, superb in graphics, and suitable for kids.

Controls: ***
Controls were really good for Gamecube, but are kinda odd feeling for Wii, but are still easy to use.

Storyline: **
This game has a good storyline, it really does, but the reason I gave it a lower rating is because it doesn't go really in-depth.

Cover: *****
Yes, you read this correctly, the cover. I like how they didn't drastically change the cover, something most companies do.
Plus, there are two covers. You just need to flip the cover-thing-a-ma-jig under the plastic around.

Overall this is awesome game, but I'd recommend to people who don't have it for GameCube.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pikmin Is Great! April 5, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Pikmin is a remake of a game that came out way back in 2001, so if your kids played that one, there's not a lot different for them this time around.

The concept is simple: A little guy has crash landed on a planet and the parts of his ship are scattered everywhere. He's about 2 inches high, so it's not like he can just walk over and pick up the pieces. The environment is like something out of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids where a small rock is a mountain of an obstacle and simple bugs are monsters.

Luckily, you quickly find help in your quest, and it's what this game is all about. There's these little seed creatures that apparently think of you as their mother and will blindly follow you wherever you go. You direct them to create more creatures, tear down obstacles, and battle bugs on your hunt for parts of your ship. There are 3 different types that you can direct, each with their own capabilities and you have to figure out how to leverage them to gain access to different areas of the world.

The crux of the game is to figure out what needs to be done to find the next part of your ship. What makes that difficult is the time limit the game imposes on you. You have 30 game days to gather what you need before your air supply runs out and you apparently die some horrible death. Each day is about 15 minutes long, so you need to get whatever you plan on doing done in that amount of time.

This is what can make the game frustrating for kids who oftentimes just want to explore and have fun. If you really want to make progress, you'll have to hit the ground running and solve puzzles as fast as you can. Otherwise, it will be impossible to complete it within the time given.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inferior port, but still a masterpiece January 29, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game because I wanted to play Pikmin again. I had played the original on Gamecube a lot, but had traded it in a long time ago. Sometimes you wanna play the games from your past. So if there is anyone like me in the world, who is mulling about whether to buy this or the Gamecube original, I would say, "Get the Gamecube original." Sure, there is widescreen, but as far as improvements, that's about it. The controls in the Gamecube version are superior. All things considered, however, this is still a highly playable game, and still a masterpiece.

If you have never played the GC original, you probably won't even notice that the controls are slightly janky. So if the Gamecube controls were a 100, this port's would be a 95.

In the GC game, you could control your aiming cursor and the Pikmin independently, with the left analog stick and the C-stick respectively; in this port, you cannot. "Down" on the Wiimote's d-pad orders the Pikmin to move in the direction of your aiming cursor: the cursor you use to throw Pikmin and change the camera. In the GC game, you could aim somewhere (using the analog stick), and have your Pikmin move in a completely different direction at the same time (using the C-stick). In this Wii port, you lose that functionality. In this port, however, you do gain slight quickness in manuevering your aiming cursor, because it's faster using the Wiimote to point, than it is to move the aiming cursor with the Gamecube's analog stick.

When aiming and throwing Pikmin, it is slightly difficult to keep the Wiimote steady while you're holding it up, and at the same time mash the "A" button; so your aiming cursor will fidget a little bit and some of your Pikmin probably won't end up where you wanted them to.
