This game was way better then the first. One reason, Purple and white pikmin woohooo! Also now red pikmin can help more for fire. Including yellow they can now help with electric. Purple can equal to the strength of 10 pikmin each. White have x-ray vision basiclly. Nowing that it makes the game alot better.The new sublevels really make the game interesting. For example all the bosses. Really fun.I like this plot better then the first game's. The last game you were just concintrating on reaparing olimar's ship within 30 day:/. But on this game you get tresures and pay off debt and unlimitate days. Oh and i can't forget louie i think of him a a giant dumb pikmin who is useless. Finally there are alot of ne enemys you will encounter and lost of strategy parts of levels to.

pikmin 2 is the sequel to pikmin. It is about two guys who need to pay off the debt to this delivery company i forgot the name of. The game unlike pikmin has no time limit so you can waste as much time as you like making more pikmin to aid you. The other cool part is that you get to more new pikmin who are very useful i wont tell you there abilities though that just ruins the surprise. The game is very based on strategy and is good for all ages and can be very addicting. Though there is one con the two new pikmin are so annoying to make! You can only get like ten a day (in pikmin time). And when you do it like every day it soon disappears making it impossible to use ever again! There is also a 2-p battle mode so you and a friend can fight each other in pikmin combat. And if your openet kills your pikmin they turn into leaves back at the onin (the thing how you create pikmin. Any ways i highly recommend this game to who ever enjoys have a huge army at your will. I give this game a perfect 10!

Now that I think about and play Ocarina of Time along with this, this is much like Zelda in many
ways, only you're not armed with a sword and shield.You're equipped with Pikmin, adorable plant/mammal creatures.And you have to pay off a debt, not save a magical kingdom. Nevertheless, there are some much
commons to Zelda.
For instance, the layout is quite similar. There are small caves that you commonly enter in order to collect all those darn treasures. They're similar to the dungeons in Zelda.You can't find very many treasures on the overworld,so it has less signifigance than the overworld in Zelda, and you access dungeons a lot less frequently than the caves.And it takes you a looong time to
completely beat the game. I've had this game for
a year, and I still haven't beaten it,
contrast to Sonic Heroes and Super Mario Sunshine,which I just completed the story in a matter of months.And SA2B only took from Christmas to late January,or maybe even shorter.
The graphics are still as eye-shocking and wondrous as the Zelda series,but they're better.
OoT had several rips in the graphics,and WW pertained too much to cel-shading.But Pikmin 2
outdoes them by having a magical enviroment like
Star Fox Adventures. It processes as slow like KH, but that speed is just fine. Now that I'm thinking about it,I play more games with average
movement than blazing-fast,eye bending Sonic.
Pikmin 2 is a classic game,just like their ancestor. It closes to Zelda more than Virtua
Quest,which is a hybrid of its own magic,Zelda,&
modern Sonic. It may not be a Player's Choice, but it's
still a recommended buy. Who says a game's gotta
be a Player's Choice to be good?
When I first played it, it took me 86 days to clear the first half. The second time, however,I
did better,and finished the first half in 32 days
flat!And guess what?I lost NO Pikmin to fire,and
less than ten to poision!And I birthed over 1000
Pikmin!
