Game Description & Reviews:
Originality....Not a new concept but unfortunately a rarity in the video game industry, and thats exactly what this game has in spades. Brilliant creatures, brilliant levels, Pikmin is a breath of fresh air in a stagnant closet of uninspired sequels.
After crashing on a strange and alien planet, Captain Olimar must team up with the creatures he calls "Pikmin" to rebuild his ship and get home!
Pikmin is a unique cross between Real Time Strategy and the action adventure genre. Developed by Nintendo EAD. Pikmin stars a tiny middle aged alien named Captain Olimar who works for the Hoctate Freight company on planet Hoctate.
While on his way back from an intergalactic vacation, Olimar crash lands into an alien planet. Upon regaining consciousness, Olimar discovers that the planet's air is toxic to his kind, and that his ship; the S.S. Dolphin has lost most of its parts and cannot make the trip back home. To make matters worse, he only has enough oxygen in his space suit to last for 30 days. He soon meets a friendly species who he decides to call "Pikmin" who under Olimar's command can help him retrieve his lost ship part and get back home.
Nintendo's charming take on the insect world. Pikmin are in a nutshell, like ants. They gain strength in numbers. The more Olimar gets under his command the more efficient they become. There are 3 types of Pikmin: red (immune to fire), yellow (immune to electricity), and blue (immune to water). Olimar needs to command the Pikmin as they defeat enemies, rebuild bridges, tear down walls, and carry items back to his ship. The player has 30 days (roughly 20 minutes each) to rebuild Olimar's ship and get him back to planet Hoctate.
Pikmin is a game where you control Olimar, a stranded spaceship pilot who relies on the creatures Pikmin, to help find his Ship Parts, you're job is to use the Pikmin to help locate and retrieve the parts, Pikmin features Innovative and Original game-play, not yet seen in any other game, with a top-Down camera view and the ability to control more then one character, and it's family friendly, Pikmin is one of the best GameCube games made, If you like this game, get it's Sequel, Pikmin 2.
