Pikmin is back!,
This review is from: Pikmin 3 (Video Game)
I can't believe it's been 9 years since Pikmin 2. I'm so glad the wait is finally over. If you love Pikmin, you will not be disappointed.
The game has beautiful graphics, great enemy designs, and is just great to look at. The control method I prefer is Wii Remote + Nunchuk with the Wii U GamePad acting as the map and database. Ever since I played the NPC versions of Pikmin 1 and 2, I can't go back to traditional controls. You control (well, eventually) three quirky, charming characters along with your faithful Pikmin in the game and placing the three leaders in different spots makes things get done quicker and it adds a little more strategy overall. It's a great, intuitive addition by Nintendo.
I'm on Day 12 right now, so I can't wait to delve deeper into this fantastic entry. I haven't tried the multiplayer yet, but the mission mode is fun. There are three types: Collect Fruit, Defeat Enemies and Boss Battles. They're pretty self-explanatory. Again, this is a great game that you shouldn't miss. Hopefully we won't have to wait until 2022 for Pikmin 4.
