Wiimote, Nunchuk & Gamepad is by far the best way to play this game. Far more accurate than the Dual Analog, and the permanent map is really useful. I got easily lost when I tried off-screen TV play.

Such a shame that you rely on the GamePad's map so much that playing on the GamePad alone is very tricky. I just need ten fruit to complete my first run through, which I'm stretching out for as long as I can because I don't want it to end.

I've just passed seven hours and am happy that I don't seem to be anywhere near finishing it. I'm like Dusty though - I'm stretching it out and exploring the different worlds as I don't want it to end. It's been a while since I've felt that way about a game, maybe since the second Professor Layton in 2009.

Credits rolled on day 35, after just south of 13 hours' play.

I can see why it gets the flak for being short- although as you can tell, I've been hammering it since getting the game on Saturday. And there is other fruit to collect.

Finished the game earlier, after fifty one (game) days and maybe twenty seven IRL hours, enjoyed it so much. Can't remember the last time a game sucked me in like this and made me hungry to play more. Some thoughts on the final area/boss...

It kinda seems to 'just' happen, as well.

Maybe that's why the game is seen as 'too short', rather than just 'short'- it stops as soon as it gets going:

I'm not far off the end now with two pieces of fruit left to collect but I have absolutely no clue how to get one of them. DAMN YOU!

With regards Mission Mode, then- am I being thick, or is there only global and local leaderboards, with no friends leaderboards?

As I said elsewhere I finished this earlier, brilliant game.

Aye seems to only be global/local which is a shame.

My copy arrived yesterday. Doesn't look like I'll be getting a chance to play it before mid-next week, now. Boo-urns!

Just understood why the planet is called Koppai.

"Nintendo was founded as a card company, named Nintendo Koppai".

The Secret Memos are going to combine to be a code for something according to a Miyamoto post on Miiverse, do we all have different numbers on our memos? Here are mine...

It sort of 'just' ends, but the game creates a new save at the end of each day, so you can roll back to the previous day.

I've decided to turn my attention to Mission mode. I'm a little bit obsessed with perfecting each level before moving on to the next. As a result, I've only played the first two missions. I may prefer this mode to Story mode, I sort of like being tested against the clock, not sure if that's just me.

Finished this a few days ago, might try getting the rest of the fruit (54/66) but more likely going to start mission mode. The game itself was really good, i didn't like the last boss though.

Is that the treasure missions? I think I only have gold medals on the first two but aye mission mode is brilliant & I'd say it teaches the importance of management of you pikmin/crew better than the main game does.

It is, yes. I pushed to get a platinum award on the first mission, and am refusing to move past the second mission until I can do the same.

Is this DLC Pack 2, or is Digital Spy being slow off the mark?
