NZGamer: "Deja vu. It's Pikmin 2. This is not only a sequel with only a few minor adjustments to make it an improvement over its predecessor, it's also the second Pikmin game to move to the Wii from the GameCube under the New Play Control! brand. We reviewed Pikmin for the Wii back in February and just as reviewers were praising the small differences between Pikmin and Pikmin 2 on the GameCube, so must we now report its success."
