Disadvantages Bit short.
The Story so far.
Olimar ia a space explorer from the planet Hocotate. On a holiday jaunt in his spaceship, the "Dolphin", he hits a meteorite and crashlands on an unknown planet. During the crash landing several parts of the Dolphin fall off and are scattered all over the alien worl. Olimars life support unit can only function for another thirty days, and then he will have to leave. Can he find the thirty missing parts to the Dolphin in time ?
This is a brilliant game! I could stop there but I wont as more needs to be said. Its a very addictive game and it is awfully scary how the hours pass when you are engrossed in this game. It is a family game, with the characters being very cartoony. The enemies are also cartoon based and are still quite sweet. You could easily come to like them if it wasnt for the fact that they are trying to eat you and your Pikmin. The game is rated as a 3+, although I personally dont agree with this rating. It is certainly "suitable" for children above this age, but I have reservations that they would be able to master the control system for sending, calling, throwing and generally controlling the Pikmin. It does take a little while to get used to, dont expect to pick up the controller and be a master instantly because it wont happen.
The graphics are amazing, such an effort has been put into the detail of the landscapes and the colours are very vibrant.
