The Return of an Army Pikmin 3 is a fully reimagined, mass-action strategy title from the critically acclaimed Pikmin series. Players will discover a beautiful world filled with strange creatures and take command of a swarm of ant-like Pikmin trying to survive. The world is densely packed with treasures and enemies, which makes the game much more action focused and fills it with layers of potential strategies and paths, adding greater replayability to challenge modes.

Pikmin 3 combines RTS elements, direct action and light puzzles. The result is a quite endearing scifi-adventure despite some control issues and bland splitscreen multiplayer. There's also no real need to develop special tactics for bosses. [Aug 2013]

Pikmin 3 is a greatly balanced, challenging at the right moments, original, adorable, and above all continually entertaining real-time strategy game, making you smile instantly. It's suited for all the gamers of all ages, and for both genders. [Issue#232]

Pikmin 3 is a cute game with plenty of soul. It takes the concept from the two previous games one step further with the way it combines tactics with roleplaying. In terms of graphics this is probably the most beautiful game the world has ever seen on a Nintendo console.

Pikmin 3 manages to combine stressful strategy with relaxing environments and cute creatures. The game is a great example of the Wii U:s capability of making improvements to existing gameplay formulas. Pikmin 3 is charming, stressful, cozy and challenging.

A brilliant HD adventure that stops short of delivering a truly definitive Wii U experience. [Oct 2013, p.66]

Nintendo, how typical. It gives you a game that looks like a child's play. However, it gets you immediately, and it won't release you until you exploit everything that's hidden inside.

Pikmin 3 might not be the game that gets people rushing to buy a Wii U, but it certainly should be.

Pikmin 3 is the game that should have launched the Wii U. Its combination of calming atmosphere and strategic gameplay create a unique and mesmerising experience while it lasts. While it may be over too soon for some players it still remains by far the best first party game currently available for Nintendo’s latest system.

It's clear that Pikmin 3 was not designed with the GamePad in mind. Even in our review guide, Nintendo recommends playing with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. Controlling the virtual cursor becomes much easier the Wii Remote, and alleviates many of the camera control issues you may face when playing with just the GamePad or Pro Controller.

From beginning to end, this is an adventure that keeps us stuck and that makes us even more attached to these small plants that lend their name to the game.
