Summary: This is a good title for families who play together, or younger children with siblings. If you can get beyond the cutesy cover, the game is actually fun for all ages (I'm 32), but is perhaps a bit too simple to hold the attention of more sophisticated gamers for long. The premise is that you control a living pinata who wants to 'entertain' at a party (why you'd want to be whacked open and broken I don't know!).
Summary: The hubby and I bought this game so that our 3 year old could play with us and so we could play when he had family and friends over. Everyone loves this game! You do have to unlock the minigames as you go along (which is why it's only a 4 star) but they're pretty easy to do. The only other reason this is a 4 and not a 5 is that if you randomize the games, you often end up playing the same courses over and over. On the up side, my 3 y.o.
Summary: Similar to other casual Xbox 360 titles such as Fuzion Frenzy 2, Viva Piñata: Party Animals is framed as a game show, where contestants compete against each other while announcers provide colorful commentary. A game of Party Animals consists of three or more race events, each followed by one or more randomly selected challenge mini-games (depending on selected game length).
Summary: We first tried this as a Xbox demo download. I then decided we needed to buy this game, its full of mini games but they're cute. I am a 27 year old mother, and between me and my husband we have children ages 4, 8, and 12 that all like the game, and I play it too! You race at the beginning, and you start collecting points to place you, after each round. Various games to play, some you have to squash ants, some you have to eat apples as fast as you can.
Summary: I thought this game was looking so childish game but actually it was not. some part of game was too hard or need practice a lot but every people can approach to this game. At first, racing was so easy which was just click button and using item. Second, lots of mini games. you can play more than 50 mini games in this game. it could make your play time longer.
Summary: I have a 4 year old and 8 year old. We can no longer buy one player games as chaos over who gets to play erupts. This game is fabulous as the graphics on a HDTV are awesome, the sounds are lively and it does not cause any frustration because someone is not able to get to another higher level like some games. My kids LOVE this game. It is light-hearted and simple. It's like watching a cartoon for those who can't play when friends come over to play.
Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old to play with an older nephew on Xbox Live. They have a lot of fun with it together, but he tends not to play with unless someone else is racing with him. Overall though - its quirky and fun, and has some cute stuff that really appeals to younger set.
Summary: I bought Viva Pinata party animals for my family. It is a wonderful game that even my 4 year old can play. It includes every member of my family. Basically it is a series of short challenges that anyone of any age can do. We really enjoy playing this together instead of all of us watching one person play.
Viva Pinata Party Animals - Not quite as good as Mario Party

Summary: I originally purchased this game because my fiancee loves Mario Party for the N64, and I wanted to get a game for our 360 that she would enjoy as much. After searching around for a little while, I found Viva Pinata Party Animals. I read several reviews of people comparing it to Mario Party, so I purchased it from Amazon. After playing, I can say that the game is a nice attempt to recreate a Mario Party-like game, and while fun, it ultimately isn't as good.
