Product Description

Product Description

Captain Olimar has returned to the planet where it all began, but this time he hasn't crash-landed, now it's all about business. Captain Olimar's company is going bankrupt, therefore in order to save it, Olimar has to return and salvage the treasure strewn all over the planet. His company's debt is a whopping 10,000 pokos so this task is almost too much for one man to handle. Luckily, his trusty assistant, Louie, has joined him this time, so if the two of them can delegate their work well, they should be able to repay the company's debts in no time!

Of course, they'll need the help of the Pikmin to do that - these two can't do anything by themselves. Players must give precise orders to their Pikmin in order to defeat enemies, grow more Pikmin and solve puzzles. Players will need to take advantage of the new powerful Purple Pikmin and poison resistant White Pikmin, plus new items as they plan their strategies - with more than 60 different species of enemy characters and randomly generated dungeons that span the planet, Pikmin 2 features much more fun gameplay than ever. And this time around, time is limitless, so players can head straight for the action or spend as much time exploring as they please.

A big improvement over the original - the best difference being the removal of that annoying 30day time limit - you still have the day/night cycle, but now you can play it at your own pace, rushing through it, or slowly building up an army of pikmin.
Plus the addition of 2 player modes, and the Wii controls - make it hard to fault.
If you liked the 1st, you'll love this - if, like me, you were put off the 1st by it's unforgiving nature, then you should find this one a lot more enjoyable.

I never brought myself a Gamecube so, Pikmin 2 is a completely fresh and most enjoyable gaming experience for me. You take control of Olimar and Louie who are looking for treasure with the help of many Pikimins which they can command. The Pikmins are very cute and everything is controlled with the most fantastic Wii controls that I have come across. In fact the Wii controls are so brilliant and easy to use that, I can not imagine Pikmin 2 on the Gamecube being as enjoyable to play. How do Nintendo manage to produce so many great games time after time and come up with lots of new ideas too. Pikmin 2 may be a update of an Gamecube game but the graphics still look very good and are very cute too. For me Pikmin 2 is up there with the Mario and Zelda games for it's sheer brilliance.

this game is truly fantastic I really enjoyed playing through the game. I loved the way that it introduces all the different Pikmin to you for the first time. When I read some of the reviews on here I was thinking of buying the game I have to say, that if your reading this for the same purpose its worth buying.

Game play:
the game play is truly brilliant with excellent additions like the treasure detector which really helps when you you get white (poisonous) Pikmin which can dig up unseen items so if you have that item it really helps. The different planets are all different and have new enemy's on them some of them even have bosses without going into caves they can surprise you but it is great fun.

The camera:
The camera is great, when you press Z you can put the camera behind you which is good if you can't see where you are properly which doesn't actually happen very often because when you do go behind an edge of a wall or something you glow red if Olimar and blue if Louie in short its good.

the enemys:
Most of them get harder as you progress so they always seem just the right difficulty for you. and you don't have to battle the bosses, but it's worth it because they give you good items like the treasure finder (above).

story:
Some people might say that the storyline isn't that fab, buy I think that its brilliant. basically your company space Holocate haul company has taken out a massive loan and needs to repay it when the president says he's going to sell olimars ship the ss.

I've always been a big fan of the original Pikmin, but for some reason never got around to buying the sequel. I finished Uni lately and decided to treat myself, and am pleased to say that the game more than lives up to expectations.

All the best parts of the first Pikmin game are here, with a few upgrades that make the gameplay even more fun. All three colours of Pikmin are back, as well as two new ones, purple and white (I won't spoil it but they have special abilities of their own). There is also a multitude of new enemies specifically designed towards each colour.

The addition of caves is a bonus, and makes the game a lot more challenging, since you have to last until the end with the Pikmin you came in with. There are also special monsters that only exist inside caves, which give you special prizes when you beat them.

The main difference to the original game is the removal of the time-limit, which makes the game a lot longer. You have more time to sit back and enjoy exploring the new levels, which are more interesting and complex as a result.

The other change is the addition of Louie, the cute little sidekick that Olimar's boss sends with him to explore the distant planet. Louie is a stroke of genius, as it allows you to split up your Pikmin team and forage seperately, getting more done, and some challenges require teamwork to complete.

Not much else to say about this - basically, if you liked the original you will love this. It's very addictive and maintains everything that made the first Pikmin so great, as well as having enough differences so as to make it fresh and interesting. Highly recommended, whether you've played the first game or not.

Pikmin 2 is brilliant, I loved pikmin 1, Loved it! missed out Pikmin 2 but I did get 3 because there were no other WiiU games, I thought 3 wasn't that good though. Now I've gone back and got 2 I think it's the best of the lot. deeper, longer and more interesting than 1, plus the wii controls feel perfect. I might get pikmin 1 with new play controls too, even though I've already got it for the GC.
