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.
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.
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...
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.
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: 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: 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.
