    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!

    Might have to buy this sooner rather then later. What's the best price online?

    Oh and no flubit as my only experience with them turned into a nightmare so never again.

    Works superbly in off tv play.  Just press down on d pad for the map.  Pikmin 3 while wife watches tv, so awesome.

    Bingo Battle is fun although I would have liked the option to use the gamepad as a separate screen. Surely if they intended it so you can look at your opponent's card they could've just put that on your hud?

    Still, it's a refreshing experience.

    Ordered this earlier :)

    So is the wiimote/nunchuk the best control method? I was going to use the gamepad on its own but won't bother if it spoils the experience in anyway with it not being accurate enough or whatever.

    I've not got round to trying the gamepad yet but it should be plenty accurate enough just not quite as accurate as a wiimote. I've not heard anyone who's used the gamepad complain about it. If you'd prefer to play through using the gamepad I'd reccommend just never trying the wiimote option so you don't know the difference!

    Im 5 hours 40 mins in (feels longer) on gamepad only and have defeated 3 bosses with no control issues.  There is a lock on which kind of negates the need to be precise against enemies using one of the sticks.

    Brilliant game!  Just rescued the captain.  Think I am about 16 days in with 9 juice left. 

    Cant recommend the game highly enough, its just so well designed with constant to and fro as you gain pikmin and find your friends.  Love how you find so many places you cant access and think to yourself that you must remember to go back at some point.  Thing is, there are so many that you would need a map and pencil to remember them all :)

    Quite looking forward to playing it now. :) I've not read any reviews, seen any recent footage or anything related to the game besides a handful of screenshots so really going Into this blind. I did the same with Animal Crossing on the 3DS and that's well and truly sunk its claws in as I've clocked around 160 hours on that so far. :D

    I got legit annoyed when SPOILERS! Louie from Pikmin 2 turns heel and robs all your stuff that little cunt. I had a HUGE stockpile of fruit and now am scrounging up all the hard fruits i couldnt get to now.

    Awesome game x

    The final level is the scariest thing I have ever seen in a video game. I got here with 52 juices left I can't believe I was stressing for time early on.

    Beat the Armoured Mawdad without losing a pikmin, phew. It's useful that the boss battles open up in Mission mode so that you can practice. Beautiful game.

    Never played a Pikmin game so didn't know what to expect but this is truly excellent. Loving every second of it.

    I don't really understand the days rolling over mechanic though? Is there an overall max number of days you need to complete the game or is it just there for you to manage fruit juice?

    Re questions on gamepad versus wiimote - I found it infinitely better with the wii mote (and the gamepad sitting on my lap or next to me for the map).

    @Gregolution i think their is enough fruit in the game to allow for 100 days of exploration.

    No max number of days, unlike the original game that had to be completed in 30. The day cycle and juicing is there to create urgency and drive planning, strategy and effective multitasking. I like it as it keeps you on your toes.

    I got distracted by the Gamepad and walked nearly all of my Pikmin into a river.

    :(

    So my "let's see how far I can go before accepting lost Pikmin" plan has lasted until the first boss (day 3) :) Did a couple of retries using different strategies, but in the end I just said "sod it". Lost about 40 up to now (day 5).

    Really, really enjoying this!

    @Wolves1877 Dont let a single Pikmin die.  Not one.  Thats the main aim of the game.

    Im kidding of course.  All will become clear soon, the game does a good job of holding your hand initially.
