I want this game bad, and Im afraid once it hits a 'comfy' price Ill have to search high(er) and low(er) for it. I hardly see the game retail at $49.99 (except GS)

To each his own--I love the first game. It doesn't have AAA production values, but it's still a blast.

Personally I thought the production values were fine, it was just completely broken/awful gameplay.

I gave up on the idea that any company could do no wrong years and years ago...during the NES days actually. Besides, it's a second party title, but IMO Nintendo's got plenty of stinkers, especially lately.

Nope, it's nothing like that (I remember loving that back in the day!) IMO it's a completely broken RTS-esque game. I'd rent first (and heck, pick up the first Pikmen if you want an interesting twist on the RTS genre that plays well).

Huh, well either it's a lot worse than the first one, or we have different ideas of "completely broken/awful" gameplay. It uses the fundamental rock/paper/scissors mechanic that works well in Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, etc. I have definitely heard that the Wii version is easier than the Gamecube one, which is too bad. The Gamecube balance was just right--you can pass a mission on the first try about 50% of the time, and it takes 3-4 playthroughs to get a good enough rank to unlock the extra missions. And for the ambitious, there is the S-rank for every level.

I definitely agree with you that it isn't even close to Pikmin in terms of quality, of course.

It's not made by Nintendo, it's made by Kuju. It is published by Nintendo, but that's no guarantee of goodness (I'm looking at you, Geist).
