Pikmin 3 is simply perfection. I have NEVER seen a game better than this before and oh my if you don't have a wii u this game is worth the $350 alone! If you do have a wii u.... what are you waiting for!?!?! Anyway lets dive into the review-
Graphics: Folks graphics don't make a game. But Pikmin 3 has the best graphics I have ever seen in my life; and I have a high end PC. Its so colorful, so sharp! Watching a video on youtube or any other site doesnt do this game justice. You need to play it yourself to see the beauty.
Audio: The music sets the tone of this game so well its unbelievable. Its so calm and relaxed until you get into a fight where the music will pick up its tone. Its just.... great.
Story: The story is 3 people trying to explore a planet have crash landed in different places. Once they get up they find weird creatures. Pikmin. Using the pikmin they must gather food to survive. I won't spoil any more of the plot because it's just too good.
The game took me about 15 hours for the main story but more fun lies in the Missions and Bingo Battle. Bingo Battle is a great multiplayer mode, and trying the leaderboards can get addicting. Lets go back for a second though, I picked this game up at midnight on the eshop- okay. Wait its midnight of the next day (as of the time of writing this review). Yes this game is SOOO addicting that in the first day the game sucked up 18 hours of my life, and I havent even gone for 100%, played many matches of bingo mode, Completed nearly any of the challenges. And I'm hungry for way more pikmin 3. This alone should tell you that this... is a great one.
Gameplay: The gameplay of this game is simple: Gather pikmin, Collect fruit to survive, Defeat enemies to gather more pikmin, and explore as much as you can in a day. The game works of a day system. Every day is 13 minutes, if you never stop the game and look around the map with the gamepad and such. Its a lot more useful than it sounds and is currently the best use of the gamepad in a game just being a map! But this isnt your old typical wii u map its a lot better. Just play the game and see for yourself. There are 3 control methods for this game; Gamepad, Pro Controller and wiimote+. The wiimote+ is easilly by far the best way to play this game but the gamepad and Pro Controller work well too. And for those wondering no- gamepad features aren't exclusive to when your playing with the gamepad. The map still shows if your playing with the wiimote+ or the Pro Controller.
Verdict: This game is amazing. I can't think of a single flaw it has- and I'm not one to give games perfect scores. This is a game to be remembered and is in my opinion, the best game of all time. Buy a wii u and this game now.
