Buy: Pikmin 2




coverCaptain Olimar has returned to the planet where Pikmin live, along with an assistant. He needs to save his near-bankrupt business, and he needs to marshal new Pikmin in order to erase his company's debt. Pikmin 2 features new colors of Pikmin (now Pikmin are red, blue, yellow, white, and purple), 2-player cooperative play, and no time limit. 


We are testing the game and will have a full review (on this page) soon. 


Testers' first impressions: The puzzles are addictively challenging, although similar to the first Pikmin. We are pleased with the fact that the 30-day time limit has been removed in Pikmin 2, which eliminates the "rushed" feeling kids had with the first game. The addition of white and purple Pikmin adds new layers of strategy to the game because each color group possesses different abilities. The enemies in Pikmin 2 are giant and intimidating, at times overwhelming.
