30 days to live - not cool

Summary:

Pikmin is a game of survival. The story starts when top Hocotate Freight employee Captain Olimar is struck by a meteor during his vacation in space. He wakes up in a strange planet filled with creatures he called Pikmin, after the PikPik Carrots on his planet. He encounters three types on his first visit: Red, Blue, and Yellow. He relies on these friendly yet fierce creatures to collect the pieces of his destroyed ship, the Dolphin, and escape the planet before his life support ends - in 30 days.

Red Pikmin are resistant to fire and have better physical power then Blue and Yellow. Blue ...

One of the Best!

The good:

1. The graphics are amazing.
2. The storyline is good and as you advance in the game new features are added such as more and different monsters in each area.
3. Each type of Pikmin have there own certain ability.
4. Pikmin's a great strategic game and as you move on Captian Olimar will explain how to control the Pikmin and fight certain monsters, basically teaching you how to play the game.
5. There is more then just one area and each area will get more challenging.


The bad:

1. Some-what Repetitive
2. Theres time limits for each day
3. Too much reading parts in the game so it's not suggestible for children who can't read.
4. You only start off with one Pikmin making it kind of hard.
5. With only one type of Pikmin when you've started out you cannot go in the water to explore further without finding another type of Pikmin who can swim and won't drown.

Summary:

Pikmin was the first in it's series developed by Nintendo in December of 2001. It was an instant hit, maybe one of the best games in it's time. Pikmin was so good that it inspired Nintendo to develop a second game.

Pikmin has a great story line that immediately gets you sucked into playing the game. At the beginning it shows a small cut-scene of what the game will be about.

Captian Olimar is flying in his spaceship trying to make his way back to his home planet, Hocotate when he is hit by a bunch of meteors. These meteors cause him to crash down on an unknown planet where about all of his par...

Strategy with plants?

The good:

  • Involves a lot of thought
  • Beautiful graphically
  • Challenging

    The bad:

  • Little Replay Value

    Summary:

    Nintendo has a lot of licenses under its belt already, each with a rich history stemming back to previous generations. The next Mario or Zelda game always gets its fair share of hype. However, the big N isn't about to let that be all. Enter Pikmin, a new license from Nintendo that intends to bring RTS gaming to the Gamecube.

    Visuals

    The world of Pikmin is, in a world, beautiful. The environments are lush, as well as being rich in texture. The graphics of the things like grass and rock look very realistic, demonstrating the jump from the N64 extremely well. Water looks and effects are also ver...

    pikmin: when you'd rather train plants than your dog

    The good:

    - a game that makes you think more strategically with commanding troops of pikmin to fight numerous enemies, and solve puzzles

    - the game areas are lively and colorful

    - can provide a challenge to even the most skilled gamers

    The bad:

    - may provide too much of a challenge to others

    - you only have a limited amount of time before the game ends

    - can be hard to get all of the parts within the 30 day time limit (not real days, but days on the game)

    - not really any replay value

    Summary:

    pikmin is a very odd game where your character named captain olimar crashes and lands on an unknown planet and his ship has lost all of the pieces all over the planet. not only that but his sensors indicate that the planet is filled with oxygen, which is strangely poisonous to our captain, and his helmet will only provide 30 days left until it fails. he later finds pikmin and then have them help him find his parts. this game will make you maybe feel like an actual captain commanding troops considering that you rely on the pikmin to fight, construct, and demolish things. this game requires t...

    A great challenging game

    The good:

    -Great graphics
    -Fun gameplay
    -Awsome music/sound
    -Take control of Pikmin

    The bad:

    -No mutiplayer
    -Gets a little repetitive after a while

    Summary:

    I have been waiting for a great innovative game for a while and Pikmin is very innovative. Basicly, you crash on a planet and your ship is totaled. To make things worse (and the story more interesting) you only have 30 bays to survive on the planet, because you got little air supply. But a spark of hope appears, when you pluck a Pikmin from the ground. The strange plant-like creature follows you and listens to your commands. After collecting thing, by using your pikmin to do all the work, to an onion (as they call it) more pikmin appears and you pluck them from the ground. Now, you use the ...

    Pikmin!

    The good:

    The graphics and music are good. It's challenging.

    The bad:

    Sometimes it's too hard, and you only have 30 days.

    Summary:

    This game is awesome! The Pikmin are cute, even though they act all cutesy when you find them, which I hate. It's really hard to get all the parts in a short amount of time. TThe graphics are good, and the music is good, too. Captain Olimar's cute. There are some really weird enemies, like the flying things that steal your Pikmin. You really have to think to beat this game. I can't find too many games like that anymore. It's really annoying, though, how the Pikmin die so easily. Fire, water, getting eaten, getting blown up. They're always dying, and you're only allowed to have 100...
