Pikmin 3 Review-IGN

Unexpectedly for a game about being a squat little extraterrestrial on an alien planet, Pikmin 3 evokes a subtle, sweet nostalgia for its foreign world. Exploring its miniaturised woodlands and ponds recall childhood autumns spent kicking through leaves, or summer afternoons digging through soil to examine the bugs at the bottom of the garden. This beautifully organic planet is home to wonderfully inventive creatures unlike anything we have on Earth, but there’s still just enough familiarity to raise a smile when the aliens rechristen things like plums, grapes, and lemons as Lesser Mock Bottoms, Dawn Pustules, and Face Wrinklers.

Only negative I see (if true) is the length. I really wish it could be played longer or has a lot of re-playability. Cant wait to use my WiiU again!

Keeps you wanting more and almost guarantees a 2nd and 3rd playthrough.

There are always a few small faults in Nintendo's games but they always know how to make games fun. And games being fun is/are the most important thing about gaming.

Pikmin games have always had a lot of re-playability. The first Pikmin can be beat in a few hours yet I've spent tens and tens of hours in it.

Again,God Shigeru Miyamoto creates another masterpiece. Can't await for August 4 release.

There you go Wii U fans. Enjoy.

I swear if anyone complains about this game getting and 8.8

3-4-51490d ago (Edited 1490d ago )

Yea an 8.8 is a really good score.

And yes 8.8 is different than 9. Had the game been 20 hours maybe it would have gotten the 9.

Too many scores of 9+ are given out these days and it's refreshing to see an 8.8

It means it is a great game with very few flaws and will probably appeal to almost anybody even if you aren't a fan of the genre or other games.

Wouldn't buy a Wii U just for this game, but add in MK8, LoZ, SSB, + Mario and yea I'm getting a Wii U eventually.

Dat gamespot Zelda score... ugh. I get bad flashbacks just hearing about it. The reaction to that score back in the day was just ridiculous.

_QQ_1489d ago

Or the reaction to any low TLOU scores.

MegaLagann1489d ago

As bad as the Zelda reaction was, I could somehow see why people reacted like that. Twilight Princess was being built as the greatest game EVER (I remember hearing this all the time) so anything lower than a 11/10 would be blasphemy.

The reaction to TLOU polygon review was so over the top. It actually brought up some legitimate gripes with the game but of course everyone knew it was a bulls*it review because they knew polygon was wrong... despite the game not being out yet.
