    Viva Pinata is a really nice touch to the Xbox 360 library, since its a title thats for the hardcore Rare fans, but is also for parents out there looking for something to play with there kids that isn...

    This game was an unusual purchase for my collection, but it turned out to be a pretty good decision.

    If you have seen my list of games, things like this are pretty rare. Truly I would suggest that you don't judge this game by the cover or by the misconception that games of this genre can't be pretty ...

    But what's inside?

    Rated on May 07, 2007 by etiennec9

    This is an interesting game, to be sure, but after many hours of twiddling I can't find any reason to recommend it. I can't imagine the point. The mini games are terrible. The animals are neat and ...

    Don't be fooled--this game might look like its for the kids, but it is seriously good fun.

    Like many, I suppose, I didn't pay much attention to Viva Pinata simply because it was obviously a game designed for kids. But I kept hearing great reviews, and so I figured it was time to try it out...

    This is a game that can not only be enjoyed by kids, but by everyone!

    There are people that say just because this is not a shot the head off game, that its not cool. Well for me, it cool to lay off they bang bang for a little bit and play some viva pinata. This is a coo...

    This game, like a brightly colored pinata, waits for you to break it open and feast on the yummy candy within.

    One look at the box and you may be put off by Viva Pinata's family friendly exterior, but dig a little deeper and you'll find an engrossing experience, worthy of anyone's time. In Viva Pinata, yo...

    AN amazingly colorful adventure filled with characters that will keep you laughing for ages.

    Rated on April 03, 2008 by Ricky-Wagner

    Viva Pinata, when you hear this name, or look at the cover of this case, you think, "this game is for five year olds" or "this game looks so gay," but the truth is, it is a very fun game for people of...

    Innovative, colourful, even amazing, yet lacking a well-thought storytelling at some moments.

    Rated on April 11, 2008 by alanorman

    It's just plain fun with Viva Pinata, a game of warm colours and taking care of the others. A game rated 3+ might seem a bit too childish to most of the players. But make no mistake, this is a good te...

    Who would have thought piñatas could be so fun...

    Well for a fan of shooters this game certainly was a change for me. I recently downloaded this game off Xbox Live for $20. It was defiantly worth the price tag. You start off with a dried up dead g...
