And it is definitely better than Tiny Kin. It feels like a Tiny Kin is a cheap parody of Pikmin. This game feels more complete.
Still, I can not give 4, because at some point in the middle, I started to get bored with the easiness of monsters and no puzzles at all in the locations.
So again, if I had a kid or was younger, probably I would love that game, but for now, it is too simple.
Pikmin 3 was a truly amazing game. And only after finishing it, have I looked up details about the first two. Now I can say that from everything I've seen and heard, the evolution from the third game to the fourth feels just about what I believe the evolution from the first to the second have felt like back in the day. Basically, a massive expansion, something that should be better in every way, but ends up quite dislike by a portion of the audience.
I feel the need to reiterate that this game is in no way bad. But it does have issues. Ironically enough these issues come from features I wished would come to be when I played the third game.
This game has too much going on of everything. The Pikmin types are great, the new maps too. But the Tutorials are too long, the NPCs are lifeless and talk too much, the quests get repetitive, the battles can be annoying, and luck based, the Dandori Challenges have inconsistent difficulties and my biggest personal flaw, the game stretches out way too much. Especially during the endgame. My Pikmin kept getting stuck on geometry and were then inevitably killed off in batches.
I could write an assay about my criticism with the game. But in the end, I don’t think that’s worth it. Because this is still a game that I have no regrets to have played. I’ll only take a short break and then come back to get the 100%.
Oatchi sucks dick too.
