New Play Control! Pikmin (Wii) > Opinions (42)

@killeryoshis
You're right, casual Wii gamers care a lot of who made the game. My cousins bought Moto GP 08, which they sold after 3 weeks...and now they buy only Nintendo games. Pikmin for what I know is a good game, and being a Nintendo game helped pushing its sales. I'm sure if No More Heroes was made by Nintendo (and marketed too) it would have reahed 1m (the first one).

People must look at the box and try to find a nintendo logo. To see if its worth buying because how can this sell so well. Its a port of a game that did better than any 3rd party game that the interwebs cares about. It outsold no more heros! Nintendo must have a big brand name or they did somthing right

best nintendo franchise ever made, I got this for 10$ at sears appliance store and I owned a gamecube and never played a pikmin game until that day, since then I beat it 3times and I got the 2nd one yesterday at gamestop used for 40$ on gamecube since the 2nd one never came to america on wii and thats 10 shy of what the game cost new back when it came out in 2004 "expensive" but so far I really think it was worth it not to mention the trouble I had with my car on the way and I also had to call every gamestop I new of and then I had to get a gamecube controller and memory card at some other store............. pikmin 1&2 in my opinion are not only the best nintendo games made but I also think they should be in the top 10 games of all time not to mention my 1&2 best games I've ever played, can't wait for pikmin 3 and I hope it has some small side story to bring back the 30day timer and I hope it has a main story without it like pikmin 2 but you have to have them both because they are completly different games because of it "find them and buy them" and if you give each of them an hour or 2 then you'll add them to your permanent collection of games you'd never sell..............

400K! That is 25% of what the G.C game did. That is decent for a NPC game that has nothing to do wit Mario.

Its....ok. The controls dont really add all that much to the experience. I played both Pikmin on GC, and i can honestly tell that the IR controls, while nice, arent really great improvements.

Never played GCN versions and glad I skipped it. I dont understand how the hell this could work with analog because wii pointer is fucking perfect.

Its a great game however not as epic or amazing as other Ninty franchise. Id lover for part 3 but I hope its not the big announcement at E3.

I don't think Nintendo really needs the money from this to fund Pikmin 3. The Wii hardware itself prints money, and then there's MK Wii, Wii Fit, etc. etc...

300k comes next week.

I see 600k being an eventual endpoint for this,but Nintendo games never cease to surprise me when it comes to sales.

This game is probably funding Pikmin 3 successfully.

Well said naruto. We can't have people buying games based on what games they want to buy.

Please do not buy this game. I MEAN COME ON!! just for the controls? the graphics are updated but can you tell??? Buy some more creative and ORIGINAL games like Deadly Creatures or for hardcore gamers Tenchu, HotD:O and MadWorld.

great idea to release this again, it's such a good game to be released only on GC where the success was limited due to the smal userbase

I had never played Pikmin before, but now its officially one of my favorite games.
But I cannot even imagine how one would have played this game without a Wiimote.

smart... many in Japan havent played pikmin, so before pikmin 3 they added a gamecube port... its kinda like an advertisement, plus its cheap, so it will be profitable also. Smart move!
