Captain Olimar has returned to the planet where it all began, but this time he hasn't crash-landed, now it's all about business. Captain Olimar's company is going bankrupt, therefore in order to save it, Olimar has to return and salvage the treasure strewn all over the planet. His company's debt is a whopping 10,000 pokos so this task is almost too much for one man to handle.

Luckily, his trusty assistant, Louie, has joined him this time, so if the two of them can delegate their work well, they should be able to repay the company's debts in no time! Of course, they'll need the help of the Pikmin to do that - these two can't do anything by themselves.

Players must give precise orders to their Pikmin in order to defeat enemies, grow more Pikmin and solve puzzles. Players will need to take advantage of the new powerful Purple Pikmin and poison resistant White Pikmin, plus new items as they plan their strategies - with more than 60 different species of enemy characters and randomly generated dungeons that span the planet, Pikmin 2 features much more fun gameplay than ever. And this time around, time is limitless, so players can head straight for the action or spend as much time exploring as they please.
  • Team up with your friends to co-operatively play and save the planet, or go against each other in battle mode. These all-new multiplayer functions will support your gameplay experience.
  • The Wii Remote pointer is used is used to control the on-screen cursor, which directs where Olimar sends Pikmin as well as where he aims the sound of his whistle.
  • The A Button has several functions: it allows Olimar to interact with an Onion (to put in or take out Pikmin) or with the Dolphin (to check the ship's status and to repair his space suit). When next to a part of the Dolphin, pressing the A Button yields information on the part. If Olimar is near Pikmin embedded in the ground, pressing the A Button will make Olimar pull the Pikmin out. Most often the A Button will be used to grab Pikmin under Olimar's direct command. When the A Button is released Olimar will throw the Pikmin to where the cursor is.
  • Retry a day from save The Wii iteration of Pikmin 2 also allows the player to select a save file and return to an earlier date of that save file.

the original pikmin is my favourite game of all time, and this one just ups the ante by 100%. i never had the chance to play pikmin 2 on gamecube, so this is really good news for me. the wii version has better controls and better visuals. so you have every reason to get this even if you have already played it before. this is a classic. nintendo at their best.

 Fantastic experiance

One of the great games you may not have played. Starts off slow enough to get to grips with but advances to a great challenge. This is a good thinking game, lots of fun, a little humor and Nintendo through and through. I recommend anyone with a Wii give this a go it will not disappoint.

 A most excellent and very cute puzzle/adventure game.

I never brought myself a Gamecube so, Pikmin 2 is a completely fresh and most enjoyable gaming experience for me. You take control of Olimar and Louie who are looking for treasure with the help of many Pikimins which they can command. The Pikmins are very cute and everything is controlled with the most fantastic Wii controls that I have come across. In fact the Wii controls are so brilliant and easy to use that, I can not imagine Pikmin 2 on the Gamecube being as enjoyable to play. How do Nintendo manage to produce so many great games time after time and come up with lots of new ideas too. Pikmin 2 may be a update of an Gamecube game but the graphics still look very good and are very cute too. For me Pikmin 2 is up there with the Mario and Zelda games for it's sheer brilliance.

ok im gonna try and be quick about this!!!


altho i ill say that if you havnt played pikmin 1 yet i recommend taht you do it is a very quick and a tad easy version of this game but to get the full exitment from this game you should get number 1 first

once you have completed number 1 go ahead and get this YOU WILL NOT BE DISPAOINTED its amazing and what makes this better than number 1 is the fact that it is HUUUUUGE the game will keep you going for AAAAAGES if you want to complete it 100%

in my opinion the NUMBER 1 GAME TO COME FROM THE GAMECUBE :) and a defo good version on here aswell
