Captain Olimar has returned to the planet where the Pikmin live, and he’s all business this time. The company he works for is going bankrupt, so to save it, Olimar must salvage the treasure buried all over the planet. Of course, he’ll need the help of the Pikmin to do that–he can’t do anything by himself. Control one of two main characters–Olimar or his assistant–as you command your Pikmin to defeat enemies, propagate more Pikmin, collect precious doodads, and solve puzzles. With unlimited time, new colors of Pikmin, and two-player cooperative play, Pikmin 2 improves on the original in many ways.
Right from the very start, the presentation of Pikmin 2 eclipses the first — it, in fact, runs circles around most Nintendo-developed games. Impressively detailed and crisp CG sequences oftentimes tell the story and the cut-scenes are very well done and amusing. The end credit scene in particular will likely have Pikmin fans giggling. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that Olimar is the brains of the outfit. Also, there is at least one surprise that players probably won’t see coming. It’s refreshing to see a Nintendo-created game with such undeniably high production values.

Those values carry over to the in-game worlds, too. Pikmin 2 runs in progressive scan (and features the option to turn deflicker on or off), supports Dolby Pro Logic II, and as a result looks and sounds marginally prettier than the original. As before, some of the environmental textures suffer up close, but appear ultra-realistic from a panned back view. Meanwhile, all of the characters from Olimar and Louie to the nasty beasts they encounter are gorgeously modeled and animated. Water shimmers realistically. Lighting effects illuminate darkened areas. Particle effects bring to life dangers like fire. And the game runs at 30 frames per second with 100 animated Pikmin whirling around at any given time.
Upon arriving on the planet, the good captain goes about reconnecting with his multicolored, faithful minions, who’ve added a couple of hues to their total number, namely in the form of white and purple pikmin. As before, each color group of pikmin will have three stages of development–leaf, bud, and flower–that will affect its speed. Furthermore, each color group will have its own unique abilities. Blue pikmin can move freely in water, red pikmin are fire resistant and make for excellent attackers, and yellow pikmin are electrically charged and can handle high voltage with ease. The white newcomers are resistant to poison and can find hidden items that are invisible to the human eye. The little, pale fellows are also poisonous, causing deadly indigestion when gobbled by foes. Finally, the purple pikmin are the sumo wrestlers of the bunch, because they boast strength that’s equal to 10 average pikmin. You’ll achieve victory by carefully making use of your leafy compadres and their unique abilities.
