The game itself is fine, but I am unimpressed with Nintendo's decision to remake the first Pikmin game with new controls rather than create a new Pikmin game and advance the series. The Wii controls work well and are much better than the GC controls, but are hardly justification to buy this game if you already have the first or second. You are supposed to pay 30$ for this remake!? Speaking of the second, why did Nintendo decide to remake the first rather than the second? The second was better than the first in every regard (except perhaps the story, which is irrelevant) with better graphics, gameplay, more content, and wasn't limited by the 30 day restriction which ruined the replay value of the first. Apparently instead of being creative and coming up with new games, Nintendo is going to continue remaking GC games with Wii controls. Hopefully future installments will be better worth the purchase.
