The Gamecube classic makes an appearance on the Wii. For those of you who haven't seen the game before, here's how it goes. A guy named Captain Olivar is traveling through space when his ship gets hit by a meteorite and crashes on a populated planet (Keep this up and he'll be demoted to Private Olivar.) Once there, he meets up with tiny humanoids with plants attached to their heads. He calls them Pikmin. These Pikmin take an instant liking to Olivar and promote him to General Olivar; he now has a group of Pikmin to command. There are three colored Pikmin: red, the genetic type, yellow, the bombardier type, and the blue, the swimming type. He will have to use Pikmin to solve puzzles, beat up other creatures, and gather items, including the 30 pieces of his ship so he can return home. But the biggest problem this game has is if you've played it on the Gamecube, there's no reason to pony up another $30 for this version. But Pikmin is still a fun game and for those who haven't played the first version will get a kick out of it. RENT IT
I Love Pikmin, but for anyone who played this game on gamecube you should know this is the exact same game. I was dissapointed because I thought they had released a brand new pikmin, but the wii controls do add a new twist.
