Pikmin 2 User Reviews

A Legendary Game!

The good:

I absolutely love this game in every way possible and I could go on all day telling how much and why.

One thing I like the most about this game is how realistic it is. It makes me feel like I am outdoors, as either Olimar or Louie, and also I could be President Hocotate.

I really enjoy this game's plot. I love the way that you control either Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, or White Pikmin to either swarm treasure, attack ferocious beasts, or have them carry you while you play dead.

This game also requires ALOT of strategies- which I like alot. I remember when I was at the Perplexing Pool, and I was by the Submerged Castle with my Blue Pikmin. I had to use each captain to throw pikmin so that the other captain may advance. I had to raise each wooden plank and run across it until I could reach the last platform. That is what I mean by strategy.

Another example of how this game is realistic, is that they mix animation with real life objects. A bunch of bottle-caps I have seen match up with one or more things that I have drank in real life.

I also love Olimar's Journal entries. I love reading about what family each creature is from, and specifics about them.

This game has endless possibilities, and I like this game more than it's predecessor.

The bad:

Anything about this game that I think is bad, isn't really "bad", but very minor.

One thing I think could have been improved, is the length. I mean, there are like 200 treasures in the whole game. I know that is a lot, but they could put even more treasures into each location of the game, and make even MORE locations. In my opinion, that would have made my PERFECT 5 rated game, even just a smidgen better.

Other than that, this game is the best title for the GC that I have played!

Summary:

With a wide range of actions you can take, and anything from something as small as a bottle-cap, to something that would take 100 10-pound people to lift, this game is a very good title.

I believe that this game has the best graphics of a Gamecube game created.

A question that I would have to ask Nintendo themselves, is how in the name of all things on Earth did they get inspired to make this game? I mean, little carrot/plant/living creature things? Bulborbs and Bulbaxs? Wollywogs? How on EARTH would they come up with this game? Not to say I don't like the idea, because honestly,I love this g...

Way Improved, Better then Pikmin 1!

The good:

1. Amazing Graphics
2. New and Improved Monsters
3. Can explore the worlds of being in underground caverns.
4. There's boss's at the bottom of almost every cavern.
5. No longer are you looking for SpaceShip parts, but objects that can be sold for pokos.
6. Olimar no longer will be alone on his trip, his fellow co-worker Louie will be with him.
7. Two new colors and species of Pikmin, Purple and White.
8. Storyline is great!

The bad:

1. There aren't any green or orange species of Pikmin.
2. It went a little over-board on how hard the monsters have become.
3. Pikmin 2 is way challenging, it takes long hours of determination to beat.
4. The newest Species should have there own mother-ship.

Summary:

Captian Olimar has returned to the gaming franchise to start his next adventure with the Pikmin by his side. Pikmin 2 was released in North America on August 30th 2004. It would become not only the newest in the Pikmin series but also the best game of it's time. Ok maybe not the best game, but to me it truly was. The graphics, storyline, monsters, and the pikmin were amazing, they made me love the new game even more.

Pikmin 2 starts out with Captian Olimars return to his home planet, Hocatate, to find that his Spaceship deliver business has gone bank-rupt. His boss, sold the last thing that...

A great sequel

The good:

-great graphics
-3 new pikmin
-unlimited days
-get a partner (Louie)
-multiplayer

The bad:

-mutiplayer is the same thing collect marbles and not that fun
-only four areas

Summary:

The small but helpful pikmin are back in Pikmin 2. The game still has really great graphics, you can see everything perfectly. Now, instead of crashing on the planet, your company has finacial problems, so you go back to the planet with Louie, and collect treasure for pikos (I think that is what it's called). The same but still addictive, gameplay is in the game. Teamwork is still the most important thing in the game. You will need teamwork to kill enemies, carry stuff, and pretty much everything in the game. The pikoiedia(or whatever again) shows the enemies you have killed, and the light ...

Engage in battle with allies.

The good:

1 This game has unlimited days to be on the planet, so it makes the game easier.
2 3 new kinds of pikmin, each with their own abilities.
3 More bosses ,each with their own strategies.

The bad:

1 There is now only 3 more types, instead of more. I think the idea of having more types would be good.
2 only 4 areas. I think it's kind of annoying to only have 4...

Summary:

This game's rich graphics make it great for camera angles. It's areas pull together to make a planet. The game before it was very popular, so it gave good support for this game. The new enemies made this game better.
What I think:
Camera:3.5 Not the greatest, but pretty good. Makes it easier to see floating enemies.
Enemies:4.5(This does not include bosses) Most of them are easy, making the game boring. But still, easy to defeat monsters make the game easier.
Bosses:5.0! Amazing. Some easy. Some hard. Bit mostly hard. Once you defeat the easy bosses and the hard, you feel proud. Once I beat th...

A great game thats greatly wierd

Summary:

When "pikmin" is mentioned, people quickly think abouth one of the first gamecube games that was ever released. With its innovative gameplay and original and wacky concept it quickly won the hearts, consoles and wallets of many gamecube owners. So, Nintendo went back to the strange drawing board and came up with: Pikmin 2, the sequel to pikmin (Like if that wasnt painfully obvious). Anyways, Pikmin 2 starts off like almost anyother game, With a cutscene explaining the game's story. The cutscene looks really nice and fluid but the lack of audio dialogue doesent compliment it. But it does hav...

The Future of RTS

The good:

Immersive action.

An impeccable blend of strategy, RTS elements, exploration, action, and adventure.

Excellent visuals, sound, environments, ambiance, and atmosphere.

The bad:

Could be a little longer.

Feels too much like an expansion pack.

Summary:

The adorable tiny plant dudes are back in a brand new game. But is it just as good as the original?

The first thing you'll notice about Pikmin 2 is how similar it is to the original game. This just proves how perfect they got it right the first time.

The original Pikmin game was an absolute gem of design and execution. A truly innovative and rewarding experience that completely breaks from the mold of the real time strategy genre.

Pikmin 2 follows closely in its predecessor's footprints by bringing you back to the mysterious planet that Olimar found himself on in the original. Only this tim...
