If you're a pikmin fan, you have to play this. it's a blast. plus the new picture mode, this game is complemented nicely with miiverse. if you aren't a pikmin fan, you HAVE to play this, trust me by the time your done, you will be a fan. It also offers several control option, the gamepad, pro controller and wiimote.
When I tried to play the game it did an update after the update my WII U stopped working. I had to call Nintendo and they told me to remove the update and then my WII worked. This game from gamefly has some kind of bug on the updates.
I loved my experience with Pikmin 3! The atmosphere was beautiful, the new Pikmin types were used in creative ways, and the new enemies were delightfully creepy. Like most players, I found the Wiimote/Nunchuck combo to be the most convenient control method, and the new "lock-on" function was incredibly useful. The AI of the Pikmin has been improved: when crossing bridges, your troop will squeeze in a bit to reduce the liklihood of those on the edges drowning, something that happened much too often in past games. My friend and I had a blast playing the co-op missions, but we found ourselves wondering why co-op wasn't implemented in Story mode, or why Purple and White Pikmin were left only for use in Missions. These would be ideal additions for a fourth installment in the series.
