Showing 1-10 of 27
Decent party/race game for kids
Stuffy "just a girl", Amazon
29 April 2013
Summary: This has definitely been playable for all seven of my kids... My youngest is four and has trouble at first figuring out what to do on the mini games, but she has gotten the hang of it since she first started playing. The older kids enjoy it also but it is not usually their first pick.
Summary: It arrived earlier that I expected. Everything was complete and new. It's a copy of Mario Party, however I bought it because I don't have enough games with 4 players on same screen mode. Now that I have it, I use it on those nights with friends and we have fun, but can be boring after a while.
Summary: Party games are usually shovelware. With the exception of a few major franchises (looking at you, Mario Party), these are quick cash-in games that are given little thought and even smaller production values. Viva Pinata Party Animals stands out among the bargain bin party game imitators by looking sleek and polished. The graphics are very nice, the characters have all their voices from the cartoon, it is technically sound, and the game itself oozes charm.
Summary: i got this game so me and my friends all had something to play together. It wasn't as good as i thought it would be. Its kind of like mario party and diddy kong racing combined. Its more for little kids really. Its entertaining but gets old very fast. I got bored with it after the first time playing it :( All the different mini games are too similar. I wouldn't suggest you buy this game unless its for a little kid with a very short attention span.
Summary: We have other games, so I don't think its our controller anymore. Just hard for some kids (and adults) to transition from one game to another when controls do different things in every game sequence, and the games are random, not patterened.
Summary: My 7 year old loves the game, as for myself, it was fun for awhile, but soon lost my attention. The mini-games become redundant very quickly, and you can only race around the same tracks for so long. All in all it's great for kids they will probably enjoy it much longer than any teen/adult will.
Summary: i bought this game because of a demo of viva pinata.. turns out this was the wrong game and instead this is a mini game type game. My son does enjoy it it changes up from mini games to races and then back again so it is not too bad but it is nothing like the actualy garden game which is viva pinata.,.
Summary: I bought Viva Pinata Party Animals to complete the Viva Pinata Series I have. This includes this game, the two regular games for the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo DS port of the original on Xbox 360 (4 Total). The game is a good party game but it still lacks some character and definition but I honestly think it is something children will enjoy but not really a trend-setter like the Mario Party Games or anything that made an impact like Fuzion Frenzy for the original Xbox.
Summary: What this game offers over the original Viva Pinata game is that it includes the actual characters from the Viva Pinata television series. You get variations on characters -- their alter egos, if you think about -- in both male and female versions, such as Fergie and Francine, as examples. The voices are a perfect match, and the pre-race and post-race commentary is exactly what you would expect from Viva Pinata. This game, however, gets very repetitive, very quickly.
Summary: I honestly only bought the game to support the Viva Pinata name. I love the cartoon and I loved the fist game and I can't wait for the next Viva Pinata to drop in September. This game is all right but it gets old fast. Not much variety here. I think you will have more fun if you play this game with some people rather then playing the computer.
