Viva Piñata Review

VideoGamer.com
12 April 2008
  • Excerpt: The premise of Viva Piñata is exceedingly simple: create a garden and attract piñatas to it. While these piñatas all have funny names and look all cute and cartoony, they are essentially animals and behave how you'd generally expect animals to behave. One set of animals will have issues with another, and on occasions there'll be trouble within a same-species community that needs sorting out.

  • Conclusion: Viva Piñata is set in a bright and colorful world full of mostly pleasant sights and sounds geared towards younger audiences. Even with its kid-appeal, the game actually seems more fitting a match for adult gamers. The complexity of micromanaging the land, meeting the needs social and mating needs of piñatas, and gaining experience for future upgrades may be too much for some kids to keep up with.

  • Excerpt: Ported from the Xbox 360, Viva Pi�ata is a colorful romp into garden building and social development of various imaginary species. While it found a solid, but perhaps disappointing, audience on Microsoft�s console, a version of the PC was inevitable due to its suitability for younger gamers. Another plus for the PC audience is the similarity the game with the Sims series as far as character building and land development is concerned.

  • Excerpt: Name 5 trademark Xbox 360 games of the top of your head! Gears of War, Halo 3, Forza 2, erm... Dead Rising... *cough*. Well? Still missing a game. Yes, I know it’s on the tip of your tongue but you are afraid to say it. No? Ok, then I’ll say it for you: Viva Piñata! One of the most unique looking games released in the last 10 years, this jewel from Rare didn’t receive the amount of attention it deserved on the 360.

18 December 2007
  • Summary: Before the launch of the Xbox 360, Microsoft bought gaming wizards Rare in their frenzy to fill the new line-up with triple-A titles. Rare had exclusively developed on the Nintendo platforms until then, and went off to create a truly innovative title involving piñatas - those stuffed animals kids whack to bits in parties to liberate the candy hidden inside.
