If there was a game I could sit and play for hours on end, over and over again and never get bored it would be Pikmin. Why? Well Pikmin is one of those addictive games that you just have play because they are cute, you get involved and the bad guys are really irritating you so much that you ... Read review

Pikmin 2 (GameCube)

In Pikmin 2, the feature-packed sequel to Nintendo's original Pikmin adventure (famously ... more

inspired by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto's back
garden), players can once more enjoy the earthly
delights of germination. Captain Olimar, the
astronaut hero of the original game, makes a
welcome return and sets about clearing some bad
debts with the aid of the titular Pikmin, which
grow from the soil when planted. In microcosm,
this is a strategy game, but there's more to it
than that: although there are strategic and puzzle
elements, the overriding theme is one of action,
which makes for an equally exciting and
challenging game. Two-player modes are new
additions in Pikmin 2, and these arrive in both
cooperative and versus varieties. The use of a
split-screen here works particularly well. Throw
in a few extra flavours of Pikmin (white and
purple complement the original's spectrum of
characters) and Olimar's new, playable sidekick
Louie, and you have a complete and thorough sequel
to a modern classic. --Jonti Davies

Pikmin (GameCube - PAL)

Pikmin (GameCube - PAL)

As Pikmin 's stranded, miniature spaceperson Olimar, you must find the missing 30 parts ... more

your spaceship needs to get you back home; these
parts are scattered across a forested area that is
crowded with giant (when compared to our hero's
size) animals and other hazards. Olimar stumbles
across the part animal, part plant, all bizarre
creatures he names Pikmin, and will have to learn
how to lead the Pikmin around the forest as he
uses the abilities of the different coloured
creatures to overcome the many obstacles in his
path. Learning when and how to make the best use
of your Pikmin's skills and traits is the essence
of the game. You can control up to 100 Pikmin at a
time while figuring out which are best suited for
a particular task. Some are better fighters, while
others can survive in water or handle explosive
bomb rocks. However, even the best Pikmin herder
will have to sacrifice a few of the plant-headed
beasts for the greater good. It's this constant
need to refine and create strategies to minimise
losses that makes Pikmin challenging and always
fun. The biggest obstacle you face is time; you
have only 30 days (each day is about 15 minutes in
real time) in which to find the necessary parts.
While this keeps the pace of the game up, some may
find such limits to be somewhat frustrating, as it
means there will be a lot of repetition and
rethinking of strategy. It also means that
diligent gamers may find Pikmin to be rather a
short game. At the end of your gaming day, though,
Pikmin is one of the best games the GameCube will
have for quite some time.

graphics, sounds, and music are fantastic and show
an awesome amount of detail. Though it's no
Pokémon, this game should an appeal to wide-eyed
younger gamers as well as seasoned veterans. The
controls are intuitive and feel perfect for the
standard GameCube controller; however, learning to
position the camera can be a tad frustrating
during some of the more tense moments, as it has
only a few magnification levels and needs constant
adjustment. The biggest obstacle you face is time;
you have only 30 days (each day is about 15
minutes in real time) in which to find the

AdvantagesHours of Great fun

DisadvantagesVery addictive

"...would be Pikmin. Why? Well Pikmin is one of those addictive games that you just have play because they are cute, you get involved and the bad guys are really irritating you so much that you just have to kill them. The brains behind Pikmin is the same person who brought you Super Mario World and Zelda, he is Shigeryu Miyamoto and when you begin to play Pikmin you can see similarities with all the games. The concept of the game is really simple, ..." Read review

Wooo-oooo-ooo-ooooo!

AdvantagesSuper Cute, Great Fun, Nice Sound Effects, I could go on and on...

DisadvantagesI could go on and on!

"...you already owned), as playing Pikmin REALLY made me want a Gamecube! In Pikmin you play the part of Olimar, an astronaut who has crashed on a strange planet with an atmosphere of poisonous oxygen. His space suit can only sustain him for a short while so he needs to find the missing ship parts and repair his ship ASAP. Very shortly after you begin you will spot a strange looking red thing that looks a bit like a giant red onion with legs which ..." Read review

Pikmin - say bye to your life

AdvantagesClassic, totally original, cute and addictive

DisadvantagesWay too short.

"...you will unleash your first Pikmin on the world. Looking like a cross between an onion and a small child, the Pikmin will follow you and do your bidding. And you’ll soon discover that he isn’t the only one of his kind. You can control over 100 Pikmin, whether they are finding parts of your ship or battling the weird and wonderful inhabitants of the planet. Just remember the time limit. Gameplay Typical Miyamoto, he has created ..." Read review

AdvantagesOutstanding Gameplay

DisadvantagesShort Lifespan and Terrible Camera Angles

"Pikmin never really made much anticipation for itself; maybe this was because people were so excited about Smash Bros. Melee that they just seemed to ignore it, or maybe it was because Nintendo's last 'Short 'n' Sweet' title had so much anticipation from 'Hidden Mansion', and didn't really deliver, that people tried not to think about it. But whatever anyone says, it was never looked at to be Nintendo's game of the year. There was a lot of speculation ..." Read review

In Three Flavours

AdvantagesAddictive | Fun | They're so cute!

DisadvantagesShort | They're so cute!

"Pikmin are cute. Too cute. There I’ve said it. When playing this game you will become attached to each and everyone of your Pikmin, unless you have a heart of stone that is. You will feel sorry for each one of the little guys that gets eaten, drowns or gets left behind. We have the now legendary Shigeru Miyamoto to thank for this. He is the man behind such gaming icons like Donkey Kong, Link and, of course, our favourite fat plumber Mario. Pikmin ..." Read review
