New Play Control but barely

Having played this game originally when it came out I was looking forward to the new play control on the Wii but find it rather underwhelming. Where's the motion control? There are 2 things you constantly do in this game - pick Pikmin and throw Pikmin. And there are two devices in your hands - Wiimote and nunchuck - which are perfect for such activities. And how do you do these things? A button. For both pick and throw. What's "new" about that? My 6 year old kept trying to throw and pick Pikmin by moving the controllers b/c that makes sense if you are going to rerelease a 6 yr. old game and add "new play control" to the title. Yes, the pointer is nice, as is widescreen, but not $30 nice.

This game is alright for people who have never played pikmin before but to all those pikvets there is really nothing new but the controls I mean to a person who has been playing pikmin for a long while vs a newcomer you will be able to clear the whole game plus get the best ending within a week and some of the original sound effects aren't even there like the bulborbs there big grunting and chomping sounds are replaced by chirping now how is that monstorus and you don't even get that satisfying squish you get from crushing a dwarf red bulborb it just chirps ( like the big ones) so unless you are new or want to have a piece of nintendo history or even if you want cheap thrills I recommended it but not to pikmin veterans like myself.
