I just finished this and loved pretty much every second of it. I personally didn't like the final section too much but it was quite interesting and the very end was really good so it made up for it. Looking on my final day it says my play time is 9 hours and 50 minutes or so but the results screen said it was over 16 hours! I'm more inclined to believe the 9 hours as it didn't feel like it lasted 16 hours but maybe that includes replayed days and time off the field whereas the other just includes time exploring the surface?|
Regardless the whole game was fantastic! It's definitely the best Pikmin game and it might even be my game of the year so far, but it's definitely in the top 3 alongside Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us. Hopefuly we wont have to wait so long for the next Pikmin game! Though I think they may do some dlc about Olimar and Louie's adventures on the planet. I'd buy that for sure!
