Summary: Despite its cutesy look,which is utterly charming,there's a hardcore sim underneath the surface to rival the likes of the Total War series.There's a hundred hours of absolutely addictive gameplay here that never plays the same way twice and will certainly remain in my top ten games for the long,long time.P.S-Keep a journal for your next playthrough.A must have.
Summary: The original game is back but this time there are about 30 more Pinatas, Multiplayer, Co-op, new mini-games, harder romancing, and actual difficulty! There is nearly no avoiding a ruffian attack, and with new items and requirements to obtain Pinatas it's a whole lot more of what made the first game great.
Summary: It is more or less the exact same game as the first one, just with improvements and additions. Making it feel more like a large expansion pack, than a new game. But even so, those improvements are good, and replaying a game I enjoyed the first time is great. I would score it higher, as it does deserve it, but due to the lack of innovation I can't. Overall: Still as good as the original, pe rhaps even better. But the lack of original content is really it's only criticism.
Summary: This game is brilliant. Just For Fun eases new player into Pinata island and normal gardening mode will challenge the veterans. Professor Pester and his ruffians makes your gardening more of a handful. I really don't understand how anybody could rate this lower than eight?
Summary: The single player mode kept too many things from the first game, you feel deja vu romancing all the creatures and finding the variants that were there the first time around. There are some new animals and plants but there is not enough new material here to get excited about. The XBL achievements are not nearly as cool as the first game either.
Summary: If you haven't played VIva Pinata, this is your chance to see what all the excitement is about. If you *have* played Viva Pinata, you may be disappointed to find this feels more like an expansion than a true sequel. Yes, they've added some stuff, but the general gameplay experience is exactly the same. (Of course, the same might be said of Halo 2 or NHL '09, so take that as you will.
Summary: Trouble in paradise may not be a revolution compared to Viva Pinata 1, but it definitely is an evolution. Enriched by online multiplayer functions, interesting usage of pinata cam to get new pinatas into your garden - Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise is a very deep simulation that may aliante Simulation enthusiasts because of the graphic style, but it definitely is fun and provides hours of fun gameplay.
