Still on Day 2 (as only just started playing!) It feels like Pikmin 1. The graphics are great. Not liking the look of the electric fences!! lol

Yes it is easy to pick it up.


The idea is you're trying to save another planet using the discovered planet's resources. You find different pikmin for different jobs, you explore areas, you encounter bosses, you work to increase your pikmin etc etc.

Quite a few videos on youtube already

This is one of the best games I've played in ages! I thought I had experienced horror before (e.g. Resident Evil) but nothing can match the sheer O.O of seeing all your yellow Pikmin burned to death cause you accidentally sent them out instead of the red..... or getting them all crushed by the giant snowballs!

Heh - yeah. I've had to replay a day or two because I've accidentally drowned the little ba$tards being distracted by the gamepad screen...

Pikmin was meant to be the first game that was meant to push the U forward. The week following Pikmin's release, despite software sales being up, console sales were down 3% the week of Pikmin's release.
