Games Played 11/13/2008


Pikmin (2001)
Developer: Nintendo
Platform: Nintendo GameCube
Purchase Date: 12/07/2001

How many Pikmin will be lost before Captain Olimar could escape the planet?

This cute real time strategy experience is unexpectedly quite a dark game. The "captain's log" style storyline progression and time constraint to complete the game really provoke a sense of maturity not frequently found in a Nintendo game. Captain Olimar's manipulations of the "Pikmin" creatures are fun to play with but the ambiguous morality and the survival of the fittest nature surrounding the whole occasions brought the game up to a whole new level of enjoyment, intelligence, and understanding.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
