    Worth more then an 8, this is based on gameplay, graphics, characters, boss battles, hours spent and game conclusion.

    Third in the series but why it stumbles on a few steps. It takes leaps in others.

    First off this review is best suited for people with past knowledge on how the first two games played and may contain spoilers. As a fan of the first 2 games. I was excited to get my hands on Pikmin 3. If you waited ... Read Full Review
