Pikmin Adventure has violence, surprise poops

Nintendo Land: Pikmin Adventure was surprising. As a huge fan of the two main series Pikmin games, I thought I knew what to expect out of this arcade-style romp. Boy was I wrong. Pikmin Advenuture is pretty much non-stop violence. Waves of enemies are broken up by a few environmental hazards, puzzles, and pick-ups, but for the most part, this is a game about breaking stuff and absolutely demolishing those carnivorous bastards who would dare to treat you like foodstuff.

The players using Wii remotes can jump and attack, not unlike in beat 'em ups like Final Fight or Double Dragon. The player with GamePad uses as Olimar. He's got two moves -- toss mini-Pikmin as a short range projectile attack, and blowing the whistle, which forces the other players to fly onto his head. Once you've got grip on your pals, you can toss them at enemies for bigger damage, or just carry them around. Pikmin can reach areas that Olimar cannot thanks to their ability to jump, and they can defend themselves with melee attacks if enemies get too close. As nice as that is, the whistle is where the real power is. If you need to evacuate a friend from a bad situation, or if you just want to mess with them, all it takes is just one toot.

Like with Metroid BlastPikmin Adventure reportedly has a relatively lengthy campaign mode, complete with multiple types of enemies and bosses. As much as I enjoyed Metroid Blast, Pikmin Adventure was faster paced and more exciting overall. It also has poops. Those kinds of surprises do a lot to keep things fresh. It's sure to be a favorite among fans of classic beat 'em ups and action RPGs when Nintendo Land is released on Nov. 18th.
