New play control 'Pikmin'

One of the only new games I like, I'm here to review Pikmin 'New play control'.

Now, I bought this game a week ago and haven't stopped playing it. I missed playing it since my brother pawned it for the GC, It's one of the newer games I like.

Graphics: For graphics, I loved the classic Pikmin look and the graphics fare off to be good for a Wii game, Not as good as the 360 or ps3 graphics, But I'll have to give this one a 4 in the graphics section. 4/5

Sound: Again, I love the classic Pikmin sound, It was the first Gamecube game I ever played and my favorite.
I don't see any improvement on sound from the Gamcube version although it might have better sound with the HD cables per say. Overall sound 5 because it has not improved but I love the classic sound since it gives me old memories.

Replay Value: To me, I can never get bored of this game, I play it through at least twice a year, But with the new controls... They haven't improved much, But I do find it easy to be able to point at whatever range I need to, And it is nice not to have my hands so close together on that small GC controller. 5/5

Challenge: Not much of a challenge to this game, It's mainly corny repetitiveness and you either lose big or win big, The hardest challenge I find is keeping each type of Pikmin above 100 with all the crazy wildlife they have, Like the poison shooting mushroom and the weird frog things... and of course, The classic red ladybug type things that just demolish the Pikmin if you don't attack it right.

I find that the areas in the games do get more challenging and those Pikmin traits come into play more and more with the water/fire hogs and the plain old water and of course, the fire gaskets, Still not much of a challenge to this game. 3/5

Overall: Now. Overall this game is awesome, Great for all ages, And personally, I love it.
For 30 bucks it's certainly worth buying unless you have the GC version, Then I'd just keep that

Not sure if I'm supposed to do a 'Here and Now' review, But I just had to review this game, When I get home I'll give reviews on games like:

Top gear 3000
E.D.F.
Dkc 1-3
Dk 64
Sim Ant

Enjoy my Pikmin Wii review.

Buy online:

Re: New play control 'Pikmin'

Work on spelling/ grammer, and review orginization, but over-all, nice review. I must confess, I'm much more into Nintendo's other franchises than Pikmin, but I may give this a shot after Batman: Arkham Assylum.
