  • Excerpt: Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your garden came to life? The carrots fighting with a head of lettuce, some celery snoozing in the sun, a couple of Lima beans playing with the tomatoes?
  • Pros: The ability to control an entire army of pikmin makes this game incredible. It's like having control over a school of fish!
  • Cons: This game has a 30-day time limit, so there's no time for dilly-dally.

Pikmin Review

  • Conclusion: So, is Pikmin any good to play? Undoubtedly yes, but you can't help but want more once you've rushed through it all. I wanted to take it all in at my own pace without sacrificing the life of little Olimar.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Pikmin just falls short of greatness due to visuals that don't push the hardware, a few niggles control and camera-wise and gameplay that simply repeats after the blue Pikmin are discovered.
