It's with great pleasure I complete my tour of duty with Pikmin 3. It's not the most complicated experience, but its cute exterior belies some inner sophistication, even if it is sometimes let down by little troubles. Despite its overall friendly nature, Pikmin 3 can make its giant garden truly intimidating when it wants to, ratcheting up the challenge for its boss fights, but never to the point of becoming overwhelming.

Pikmin 3 is a game about nature, just as it always has been. But on Wii U it’s so believable it often feels like you’re sitting in a real garden, playing with ants and beetles in dappled sunlight. Despite the macabre undertones of the cruelty of nature, the game is charming, funny, and utterly captivating. It is without doubt yet another Miyamoto masterpiece, and one that the Wii U desperately needs.

Beautifully crafted and filled to the brim with exciting gameplay features, Pikmin 3 is a worthy new instalment in Nintendo's quirky strategy series. The core gameplay mechanics remain true to the GameCube originals, but are further enhanced by the unique features of the Wii U GamePad; controlling your Pikmin is a much smoother experience as a result, and allows for a relatively advanced level of play.
