Life under a microscope fantasy world, Pikmin delivers a unique experience like few before it with a blend of real-time strategy, adventure, and puzzle elements. You control Captain Olimar, a lovable little astronaut, who crash-landed on a planet inhabited by even more lovable little plant creatures known as Pikmin. Olimar can command these creatures RTS-style, assign them tasks, make them attack foes, and gather resources. The ultimate task is to rebuild Olimar's space ship before a 30-day time window elapses. Command lovable little creatures RTS-style Rebuild Olimar's space ship before a 30-day time window elapses
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.

This game is great as it has a simple story that all ages can enjoy as well as having nice mechanics to use to solve the obstacles that get in your way to retrieving your ships parts. The game is still the same as its GameCube edition which is kind of a bummer as I would of loved to play maybe some new dungeons or some sort of new content though the game is still enjoyable a 2nd time around.
I highly recommend this game to those that have never got a chance to experience this game the first time around and just recommend it to those that have before as it is the same ol' thing though with the new controls it is more enjoyable a second time around.
Great graphics for an old gamecube game
Very fun to play
Unique, interesting enemies to fight
Strategic and challenging if you've never played before
My disc was much more scratched upon arrival than was described, but it still plays
A bit short (though maybe I'm just really good at the game)
Controlling your pikmin to move around you is a bit awkward compared to the gamecube's c-stick control.
I must say, for a ten year old game, it holds up. The new play controls are very much intuitive, one would think the game was designed for the wii from the start. The graphics look old, they come from the gamecube of course, and other than resizing the display to fit a 16x9 screen without stretching, no improvements there have been made. Given the cartoony style of the game however, there's nothing really wrong with that, although some anti-aliasing would've been nice.
This game is challenging & compelling, yet completely appropriate for children of any age and therefore makes an excellent gift to a young child. Rare is the game that nails a 'G' rating and is addicting to play in the modern gaming era. Pikmin nails it.
I recently got into the Pikmin series, as I saw the second game, Pikmin 2, for the Wii at Target for a low price ($20) and said "why not?". The entertainment ended up being worth $100, but I was disappointed I could only find the original for the Gamecube, which we do not have. Then I found this. Let me just say, this game was more than definitely worth the price ($41). The Pikmin series is the best video game series ever, and I totally recommend this game.
