Summary: My wife and I played it for 3 hours when we got it. Co-op is odd, because there is now way for two players to simultaneously play the game, you can just switch back and forth between who is in control. After three hours we accidentally didn't save, and have never mustered the energy to go through the tutorials and stuff again.
Summary: got it like 2 years ago, BORING GAME EVER PLAYED. if you just want to stare at dumb 'pinhatas' flying and walking around without a goal, this is your game! BUY IT!! .... dont buy. i know the game is old.
Summary: There was alot of hype surronding this game and it was not nearly as good or as interesting as you may think viva pinata is. Some people thought viva pinata was going to be the next pokemon but to me it's just another boring game. I'm not trying to be too negative but all you do is breed pinatas and grow different plants that is all you do.
Summary: I got this as a gift for two 7 and 11 year old boys. It was well received and they played it alot initially, but tailed off rapidly. It just doesn't seem to ever come back out of the box into their top ten rotation. Not an indictment of the game by any means, just an observation.
Summary: i had such high expectations for this game but I just don't get it. I am 28 years old, and play other simulation games (the Sims, for example) but i just couldn't get into this game. it's kind of complicated to keep track of things, and even harder to orient yourself. i played this game only once for about an hour or two before i gave up. and mind you that those two hours were not very fun for me.
If you want this game, get "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" instead.

Summary: Okay this is a good game, it's fun, I could sit and play for hours without getting bored. The problem is, it's not worth it to buy this game now that Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise is available. Trouble in Paradise streamlined the interface issues and added content, but it basically the same game. I found this out after I ordered both Viva Pinata and Trouble in Paradise and had to go through the hassle of changing my order.
Summary: Rare's second outing for the Viva Pinata series is not much different that the original game. The gameplay is relatively the same, the controls are relatively the same, the graphics are practically the same -- at first glance, you'll wonder what effort Rare made on this second game, other than adding two new play areas and a couple dozen new pinatas. You'll start this game somewhat similar to how the original game started -- in a garden that barely has anything.
