Pikmin 3 video game reviewWritten by Michael Siebenaler | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Pikmin 3 (Nintendo)
Creature is the name of the game in Pikmin 3, a real-time strategy action video game for the Nintendo Wii U. This sequel to the 2004 Nintendo GameCube game, Pikmin 2, showcases the multi-colored and multi-talented Pikmin who live on the planet PNF and are discovered by three visitors from the planet Koppai named Alph, Brittany, and Charlie. Players gradually discover different Pikmin types among massive environments full of various elements.
The main storyline is mainly driven by basic survival and food as related storylines and other characters eventually appear. These three visitors can give their new friends orders to build and destroy while commanding a maximum of hundred 100 of each type. Players can use the Wii U GamePad, the Wii U Pro Controller or the Wii Remote (Plus) with nunchuk. Of course, the GamePad has the coolest features (overhead maps, touch screen capabilities, Off-TV play mode, etc.), but my favorite control scheme is the remote and nunchuk mainly because of the precise aiming functions.
Players must choose control schemes wisely because the Pikmin needs constant management along with the multitasking gameplay, which features some great combat as Pikmin take down other creatures to survive. The main single player mode takes players through a daily timeline format while the Mission mode showcases special treasure gathering and enemy fighting challenges. The two-player, competitive Bingo Battle mode is a great split screen experience where competition involves gathers four fruit pieces in a row on the board to win.
This amazing game highly promotes exploration while players can always find rewards after when completing considerable challenges. A must have for the Wii U library due to the high replay value, creative gameplay, helpful sound cues, intuitive designs, and immersive graphics. Pikmin 3 also injects surprising emotion into the storyline, so players experience genuine feelings of excitement, care, and consideration, which can yield strong strategies with satisfying rewards. Nintendo HD gaming experiences are alive and well with the highly recommended Pikmin 3 (****, rated E10+ for mild cartoon violence).
