New Play Control! Pikmin Review

Cheat Code Central
22 December 2009
  • Conclusion: New Play Control! Pikmin (and soon-to-be-released Pikmin 2) seems to be Nintendo's way of introducing the series to its new legion of Wii owners before the inevitable unveiling of Pikmin 3. For those folks who've already experienced the game, perhaps there isn't enough here to warrant a purchase. After all, New Play Control! Pikmin 2 is already lined up for release, and like its GameCube counterpart, it's sure to be the better game.

Pikmin review

Gameplanet
13 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Fun for all ages. While there's nothing new to speak of, fans of the GameCube version may enjoy a revisit; however those who missed Pikmin the first time around will get the most bang for their buck.
  • Pros: The Wii remote and nunchuck are extremely well suited to the new play control system; gotta love the price.
  • Cons: The time constraint system is still there, discouraging a leisurely exploration of each level and limiting the game’s replay value; the pikmin often behave more like lemmings, with no regard for their safety.

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
11 April 2009
  • Excerpt: We should probably make it clear from the beginning that the vast majority of this review is going to be aimed at those who didn't play Pikmin the first time around. For those of you who did play it, as you'd expect, there isn't much different between this and the GameCube original other than the new Wii controls, widescreen support and the ability to load your save game from any day you've already played.

Pikmin Review (Wii)

ButtonMasher
5 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Pikmin was one of the best and most loved games to grace Nintendo’s Gamecube and you now have the opportunity to enjoy it on your Wii. You should be made aware that it is very much the original game. It comes with new Wii controls, a new way to load save games and widescreen support, but apart from that it is the same game. This review will be aimed at those of you that never played the original Pikmin. Pikin is one of those games that is hard to put into a category.
