Summary: We had read some reviews before we made this purchase so we knew what we were in for. And Pikmin 2 delivered exactly what we expected. Easy gameplay and fun characters and graphics. Good family fun!
Summary: after hearing about a 3rd episode coming soon, i had to try the first two. it's a nintendo game allright, simple concept and design makes you wonder why it's so much fun to control an army of small creatures to accomplish your goals. the magic works so well you get carried away, the loss of a dozen of your pikmins in one hit can make you really angry.
Summary: I loved the first Pikmin game and was really looking forward to this, so much so that I paid £40 for it second hand, which was the going rate on Amazon at the time. Unfortunately though, Pikmin 2 was just too hard for me, although my more skilled husband really enjoyed it. I think if you are an experienced and co-ordinated gamer, it would be fine, but if like me you have two left thumbs, and are more used to puzzle and sim type games you might struggle to get very far in...
Summary: Never played the old versions of pikmin before but i don't need to with this game. Its good adventure gaming for all ages, not too easy and not too hard, great time filler as leels can be as long or sort as u like :-)
Conclusion: Pikmin is a port of a Gamecube game released several years ago, in which having played myself was a huge fan. Sadly, the gamecube was doomed to obscurity and so this game didn't reach the audience it deserved.
Conclusion: this was my first time playing pikmin and i must say that it surprised me , the new controls as it said on the box were very easy to pick up and in no time mastered , the story mode is a change of pace to most as your set with 30 days to repair your ship , overall a great buy
