While Pikmin stole the hearts of many, Pikmin 2 comes out on top to most, mainly because of TWO new types of Pikmin and no time limit. That's right, this time you are allowed to roam the Pikmin planet for UNLIMITED Days. Captain Olimar returns once again to the planet, because his employer Hocotate Freight has obtained a huge debt, due to a space bunny eating the golden pik-pik carrots, but this time is accomponied by his partner, Louie. Pikmin 2 introduces new 2-player mode where friends race to see who can get the most treasure.
The New Pikmin:
In Pikmin, you had 3 types of these odd creatures. A red type, blue type, and yellow type. This time, old Pikmin will be returning and new ones being introduced.
These bulky guys (or gals) are strong. They are worth about 50 regular Pikmin (as I recall) and are heavier. While they deal more damage and make hauling ship parts a whole lot easier, they also are harder to throw.
The last obtained Pikmin, these little guys are much smaller than the others. They are immune to poison, and they can dig up treasures from the ground using their beady red eyes.
Overall, I give this game a 10. It is masterfull, and sure to capture anyones' hearts if they're into stradegy.
Great game for renting. It was a lot of fun, most of all for people who like puzzles. I don't think that this is a game that I would want to buy, although. It's fun, but gets old after some time. The game is long which is good, there is always something new to do, but it all seems the same. A must-play in my book, but better if it's rented.
