Colourful Addictive Game..
4 March 2007 | by Chaosweaver-1See all my reviews

'Viva Piñata' is a creative and colourful title set on the beautiful Piñata Island. You'll start of with a patch of baron land that you'll nurture, getting rid of any junk or bad soil before you can start planting the seeds of your Garden. Then the fun begins… Soon you'll start attracting a whole host of weird and wonderful creatures known as Piñatas. In time, if you provide them with their plant and food requirements, they'll want to become residents of your Garden, allowing you expand your effervescent environment even more! By providing homes for your Piñata, and meeting their 'romance requirements', Piñatas can fall in love, perform a 'romance dance' and make baby Piñata! These eventually grow to adults who can do a 'romance dance' with other Piñata, and so the Circle of Life continues! The genius of 'Viva Piñata' lies in its requirement to maintain a balanced ecosystem in order to continue growing your virtual community. Some Piñata will feed off the plants you grow in your Garden, whilst others prefer the taste of Piñata lower down the Food Chain! In time, you will obtain enough skills to attract over 40 fuzzy species to your Garden, but equilibrium is everything on Piñata Island – learning the harmonic balance of each species is essential if you want to create the most vibrant and exciting Gardens on the Island.

One of the most innocent titles on the Xbox 360, 'Viva Piñata' is a creative, colourful and addictive game. Younger gamers will get hooked on the beautiful visuals and addictive gameplay, whilst older players will find it a breath of fresh air from the excellent, but nonetheless brutal likes of Gears of War and Dead Rising. Original and refreshing, you've never seen anything like 'Viva Piñata' on Xbox 360!
