Pikmin and its sequel were two of the GameCube’s most beloved titles. But over the lifespan of the Wii, no new games were released in the series. Now, after nine years of anxious waiting, the cute plant-creatures are back and on the Wii U. And while it’s a little rough around the edges, it is indeed a true Pikmin game.
Good – It’s Pikmin
If you have played either of the previous Pikmin games, you know what to expect in Pikmin 3. You land on a planet, befriend the Pikmin and set to work picking flowers, defeating monsters, solving puzzles, and finding food. As you find new types of Pikmin, you are able to reach previously inaccessible areas, defeat new monsters, and progress through the story's plot. It's a game that's half RTS, half puzzle.
