Customer Reviews for Pikmin 3
Review 1 for Pikmin 3
I can't wait!!!
The pikmin are back and they are coming to the wii u. I am a fan of the pikmin and i own pikmin and pikmin 2. I don't care how much it costs because I'm gonna get it on the date the wii u omes out.
With combination of exploration, strategy and discovery pikmin 3 brings the addiction gameplay it is know for from past games..if your a new player to the expert player pikmin is a true delight to play,so if you own a wiiu pikmin 3 needs to be on you must buy list..it is a fantastic game just ask my mom,lol...
This game is amazing perfect graphics and it makes a perfect addition to the pikmin collection. Given the story is a little short it makes up for it with the good story and just all out nice gameplay changes and the replayability. 10/10 would buy again!
Pikmin to me is one of Nintendo's more obscure successes in gaming, with the key word being "success". Pikmin 3 on the other hand is pure gold. The cartoony character designs mesh well with the adorable Pikmin creatures and the realistic, stunning graphics in the landscape. Now this game seems easy at first glimpse, but right when you think you have everything under control the first boss of the game comes and punches your naive little face. The challenge is great, the world is fantastic, the main characters are favorable, and the new Pikmin types just make sense. Try the game when you have the chance because everybody should have a little taste of the genius that is Pikmin 3.
Pikmin 3 is incredibly fun. Your planet is starving and it's up to Alph, Brittany, and Charlie to save your planet. You'll have to command an army of multiple types of Pikmin to battle, collect fruit, and beat obstacles that stand in your way. It's all about strategy as you'll be switching between captains to complete multiple tasks at the same time. Did I mention that the graphics are mind blowing, BECAUSE THEY ARE!!!! Pikmin 3 also comes with mission mode and multiplayer mode. In mission mode you'll either have to collect fruit, battle enemies, or defeat bosses in order to get high scores and test your Pikmin skills. In multiplayer you can compete with friends in capture the flag or beat them in getting the highest score. Overall Pikmin 3 is an amazing game that everyone who owns a Wii U must get. It is worth getting a Wii U if you don't have one already.

Review 6 for Pikmin 3
Great, but I have a few concerns
First and foremost I must say I liked the original Pikmin, and the second one was one of my top 5 favorite games of all time, so I am excited to see that they are making a third. The long wait means that they must have taken their time into making pikmin 3 a great game. For pikmin fans out there, they removed purple and white pikmin and exchanged them for two new types of pikmin. The original three colors are still there and I am unsure about bulbmin, the pikmin that look like bulborbs, wether they are still there. my two concerns are the 99.99$ price which is outrageous, but i am guessing that gamestop put up on their website as an absolute maximum price that is likely to decrease to around 60$. My second concern is how gamestop categorizes the game as puzzle and cards, which is not like the other two pikmin games which are strategy games. Overall I will proabally get this game at the wii u launch and if the price of a game decreases i would proabally get new super mario bros u as well.

White and Purple are still there
Wrong, on nintendo's e3 page it says "In addition to the five original types of Pikmin encountered in previous games, the new Rock Pikmin bring powerful new abilities and are able to crack hard outer shells of enemies and break through solid barriers." And they never confirmed the pink pikmin, they could just be enemies, but with flowers on their heads.

This game is perfect for: casual gamers
It takes just a couple hours to beat. After waiting for years for them to make another one, they come out with this?!
Don't get me wrong, it's fun, but it's only gonna last you one evening, if that.
Super dissappointed with the length, and there really isn't any draw to playing it over again.
All the puzzles are super dumbed down, so you practically walk through the whole game, as if it's on easy-mode. Also, the ending sucks.
Super lame, would not recommend.

The wait is over
Location: Covington, LA
Ah, Pikmin. I have loved the series since it released, and my feelings have not changed after 10+ years. I think I speak for all Pikmin fans when I say that we all are thrilled that the game is officially coming out. This game will surely be worth buying. However, it would not necessarily be a good idea for someone that has not played a pikmin game to play the game expecting the same satisfaction that a long time fan would get. If you want to enjoy this game fully, it would be smart to play the other installments in the series. Overall, the series is great, and the game will give us all an extra reason to buy a Wii U. I hope you love this game!

I agree Pikmin 3 looks amezing. The graphics aninmation looks great. As do the nature inspired invimients and levil designs. The music and sound for this game is amezing as well. I can't whait. I kown this will be the best Pikmin ever. I love Pikmin more every time i see the trailers for this amzing game. PS i don't think you have to have played the past Pikmin games to get the most out of this one but thay where very fun games.

PIKMIN 3, in HD Glory.
Location: Henderson, NV
Pikmin 1 and 2 were by far some of the most addicting and inovative games to date. Even if this game is HALF as good and pikmin 1 then it is going to be FANTASTIC...PLUS Pikmin in HD is going to make it just that much better. Already pre-ordered mine, Nintendo for life baby.

Review 10 for Pikmin 3
The return of the army.
Location: Mushroom Kingdom
Pikmin is one of my most beloved video game series of all time. It is all about strategy. The good thing is that you don't need to use strategy as you can just go all out and attack. So the series is perfect for everyone. Now that the series is in HD, it will bring even more enjoyment while playing. As a long time fan of the series, I highly recommend Pikmin 3 to all Wii U owners.
i have been waiting so long for this one i have played the first two and i bet this one will be just as good! i loved it at e3 and i will love it at home too! if you have not played the other two i recommend playing them while we wait for it and the wii u.
I am a big fan of the first 2 games and I was disappointed by this one. The controls are sloppy, terrible and lack the fluidity of the first 2 games. They take away the most effect ability from the first to games, the C-stick command to control pikmin, in exchange for an unreliable lock on/charge combo that's the same button as dismiss. I felt more rushed with this game too because you were constantly trying to complete some story task instead of just being able to enjoy he game. The game days are shorter as well which makes completing multiple tasks nearly impossible even with 3 characters this time. They changed all the Pikmin proportions for doing things too. The AI at times is great but when it counts it's terrible. It was very short too, the second game is still much much longer with this one comparable to the first. They also do not stick to the cannon of the first games and lacks an enemy data base or info which was fun. It was like having to relearn an entire game system, play it if you own a Wii U otherwise don't worry about it.
I got the chance to play Pikmin for the first time, and soon I will play Pikmin on Wii and Pikmin 2. Pikmin is a great RTS. I think Pikmin is harder because you have a time limit, but in Pikmin 2 you have no time limit, which is one of the reasons I will pick up Pikmin 2 on Wii. One of the things I think most gamers would hope for is unlimited time in Pikmin 3, just like in Pikmin 2. They chose the right console for Pikmin 3.
i had zero intrest in the wii u for a long time. then once i saw pikmin 3, it just looked like pure fun. i watched the ZackScott playthrough and was imediately hooked. i knew i had to have this game and a wii u. once i got it, my expectations were smashed as i played it. its one of the few games that made me sad to beat, but overly joyed to play again.
I don't know what it was, but the first time i saw the cover art for Pikmin i was hooked. I just got so attached to my little buddies that when i saw a big enemy on the screen, instead of attacking it like a crazy maniac i would do everything i can to avoid any confrontation that would result in my Pikmin dieing. Same goes for Pikmin 2. Now that Pikmin 3 has been announced and im a few more years wiser and older my pikminies and i well explore every single part of the maps and no Bulborbs are going to get in are way!

I like how they look like ants and how its in HD I wonder if they would consider making a pikmin game on a handheld like the 3DS?
Review 16 for Pikmin 3
Excited, but . . .
Location: Rialto, CA
I have been waiting many years for a sequel to the amazing game that is Pikmin 2. I am also excited for the launch of the Wii U, however I am honestly disappointing for the price of a game. If these prices are final then I don't know how many Wii U games I'll buy. According to Gamestop the price of a First Party Wii U game is $100! That's twice the amount Wii games are worth. I'm still going to get the Wii U regardless of price because I'm a loyal Nintendo fan, but I am going to be really mad if the final price of a Wii U game is $100. I just hope that the price drops otherwise Nintendo might not be getting many sells. I'd hate to see Nintendo leave the competition but if the prices stay this high then there's a chance that might happen.

That there price is a place holder
That price of 99.99$ is just Gamestops place holder....it is a HUGE over statement as Reggie and Iwata both said games by themselves in the US will never retail for more than 49.99$ So the price you see before you is just a big mess of how much it's really gonna cost.
Review 17 for Pikmin 3
One of the best games ever created
My friend got Pikmin 3 and we are both new to the Pikmin series, we've only seen walkthroughs and Pikmin 3 looked fun and had good reviews so we decided to get it and try it. BEST GAME EVER. THIS GAME IS FOR EVERY GAMER WHO WANTS TO HAVE FUN PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. The only problem is no purple pikmin, but anyone can live through that, considering how great the game is. Nintendo has outdone themselves.

This game is definitely one of the greatest nintendo games created, along with Pikmin, Pikmin 2, SSB Melee, SSB Brawl, SSB for 3DS, and SSB for Wii U.
Review 18 for Pikmin 3
Best game ever!
Location: Mushroom Kingdom
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
This is my favorite game of all time! I got for free with Mario Kart 8 & I absolutely love it! People don't think Wii U is next gen this game begs to differ! The story is really nice & this is much more story based than the last two games. You control the Red,Yellow,Blue & the new Rock & Winged Pikmin. The rock & winged pikmin are much better than UP purple pikmin & OP White pikmin which only appear in mission mode. Which is just so addictive & it has DLC & you get three of those DLC missions for free. Beating this game as quickly as possible with as many Pikmin as possible adds more replay value along with mission mode. & it has multiplayer mode with two different objectives, either Bingo Battle mode which returns from the last game, & capture the victory macaroon which plays like capture the flag. my preferred control scheme is the Wii U game in Off-TV mode. seeya
The new Pikmin game is going to be great! I think that this game should be packed in with the Wii U.

Good Suggestion But...
That's a very good suggestion but Nintendo wouldn't be that generous and put such a great game in for the beginning release of the Wii u they will probably put something having to do with the special Wii content something like the Mii characters. This is exactly what they did with the Nintendo Wii system they put Wii Sports with it and I think that they will put a Mii game like Nintendo Land bundled with the Wii u system. Maybe further in the development of the Wii u system they will bundle in more popular games like what they did more further in the development with the Nintendo Wii system.

Pikmin 3 looks exciting
Location: dont have one
Well I have the first two games it was challenging to me but It was still fun If pikmin 3 still has everything it still had it will be really fun they should put a sandbox mode not with the pikmin but with the days I know they did with the second but still it would be nice if that was the same can't wait and a new pikmina the rock pikmin oh its going to be so cool cant wait
