  • Summary: Shigeru Miyamoto, the world-famous creator of Mario and Zelda, has been waiting for years to develop a game like this. When a space traveler crashes in a strange world, the Pikmin - a curious race of plantlike creatures - help him explore, fight off savage predators and assemble the scattered pieces of his spaceship. The Pikmin look like flowers when they're in the ground, but they can move freely and work together.
  • Pros: Artistic, Visually Enjoyable Levels; Revolutionary Adventure/Puzzle Gameplay; Intuitive Controls; Miyamoto's Perfection; Relaxing Gameplay
  • Cons: No Multiplayer Options; Could have been Longer; Dull Sound Department

Pikmin

  • Excerpt: Pikmin is an unusual blend that works magnificently: the characters and even the enemies have a certain "cuteness" to them, but the fatalistic struggle is placed in a realistical environment and pulled of with a deepening strategy that will make any gamer glad they played it. In Pikmin , you play as Captain Olimar, whose starship is struck by a meteor and crashes.
  • Pros: Excellently realized world, Easy to pick up real-time strategy, Great learning curve
  • Cons: Short length, In-game camera is challenging to use

  • Excerpt: Strangely enough, it's this quaintness that may have inspired the general apathy that greeted Pikmin soon before and during its release. Certainly, a large amount of people were unhappy to learn that Shigeru Miyamoto's first project on the GameCube wouldn't be a new game in the Mario series, but one starring a cuddly looking spaceman the size of drumlord's genitalia (read: approximately one inch).
