  • Summary: Even after eight years in an ever-evolving market, the original Pikmin still packs a strategic punch. That's high praise for Nintendo's skillful game design, but also a veiled complaint about the company's work ethic. Come on, guys! Give us a new game, not a GameCube title we can already play using the Wii's backwards compatibility. The new functionality isn't even impressive.

Update of classic GameCube strategy title; better on Wii.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game -- designed by Mario and Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto -- contains very minor animated violence as you can instruct your Pikmin creatures to attack an enemy (which basically consists of jumping on it). There is no other controversial content in this game.

It's Still Pikmin...But There's Improved Throwing!

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Guide multi-colored walking onions on a quest to find missing spaceship parts Graphics: This game came out eight years ago. Set your expectations accordingly Sound: A charming musical score, but it'd be nice to have more variety as the in-game days pass Playability: The new control scheme dramatically improves some mechanics, and is a little worse than the original in other areas Entertainment: A simple but engrossing strategy title wears its age well, but even...

  • Excerpt: I have fond memories of my GameCube, which I affectionately called my lunchbox gaming system. During its lifecycle it had its share of quality first party titles including Zelda and any of the Mario’s of course, but one of the most overshadowed and an underappreciated game was Pikmin. The game mixed a cool story with some of the innovative graphics and gameplay of its era.

  • Excerpt: Вас удивила надпись "Год выпуска" немногим выше этих строк? Посмотрите на название игры. Дело в том, что эта самая игра вышла на Gamecube еще в далёком 2001 году, стараясь хоть как то увеличить количество проданных консолей.
  • Pros: Дизайн, звук, геймплей, история.
  • Cons: Временами однообразие.

  • Summary: De New Play Control-serie laat nieuwe gamers kennis maken met oude GameCube-titels. Mensen die niet de tofste titels van de GameCube hebben kunnen spelen, krijgen nu op de Nintendo Wii een herkansing. Uiteraard zijn alle NPC!-games aangepast aan de unieke besturingsmogelijkheden van de Wii. Zo kreeg ondergetekende de mogelijkheid om New Play Control! Pikmin, een klein meesterwerkje van de GameCube, onder handen te nemen.
  • Pros: Pikmin blijft geniaal, Besturing is prima
  • Cons: Schaamteloze port, Geen grote toevoegingen, Hoge prijs voor een kopie
