I still don't know how the WiiU's BrickPad functions with the game. So I guess I'll have to watch the other content you guys have put up - which is what I'm supposed to do.
But I am interested to see how this format will work when the game being reviewed isn't a sequel. It might be harder to fit everything you need to say about a game into this few words when it's a new IP.

My favourite thing about pikmin is that Olimar is "the size of a fifty pence piece"

I like the new format guys. Good show.

I too will be looking with interest at what'll happen when a new IP comes out. Saying that, there's still some bits you could cut down on, this review manages it with a good number of transitions and the like intact. Plenty of space to cut stuff down even further if needed.

Either way, I like. To-the-point and nice to read, and it doesn't feel like there's anything missing. A selection of canap├ęs as opposed to a full-course dinner - nothing wrong with that.

The controls are the weirdest part. The game is the most twin-stick RTS style console game ever, except they don't use twin sticks. Everything it mapped to the left stick, I guess so players could play with the Wiimote. Which means they hamstrung the primary control scheme of their new next gen console so as not to sideline the control scheme of their last gen controller. Nintendo, this is why I broke up with you. Figure it out.

I've not played Pikmin before, so watched with interest last night whilst having my dinner.

I'd agree with Chris in that my misconceptions about what the game is differ greatly from the gameplay I watched. The game looks quirky, fun - and from the David Turner's review over at Spong, quite dark with it.

I'm not sure i'm going to jump straight in and buy it, but I am really, really tempted. It looks a bit different, and that's quite the slow burn of a draw.

This comment is ridiculous and to think you are smarter than the guys who designed the game and say that is why u broke up with nintendo, i dont think u will be missed, the game is not designed to just be played on the gamepad. The game should always be played on the wiimote, nunchuck and gamepad. Chris is playing the game wrong, the gamepad should only be used as a map and for multi tasking, just prop it up in front of you on the stand that comes with the premium bundle then realise that this is one of the greatest games to come out in a long time and it oozes nintendo.
