Fun?

I thought this game was fun when we first got it. My girl thought the characters were "cute" and that made her actually play with me. I found the games to be too easy.

Graphics are as solid as they were in the earlier game. This game has talking Pinatas, lots of them. I enjoyed Viva Pinata, it was a kids game with depth. VP:Party Animals, however, is just a kid's game. Like a barely interactive cartoon.

The mini-games are repetitive. Sometimes the simple control scheme doesn't work out. It's like a budget title with pretty colors.

Short Review:
Party game with Mario Kart racing fun mixed in, decent online play, well placed achievements, A great rent...not so much a great purchase, unless your a big party game fan.

Long Review:
If your a fan of party games (ie: Warioware, Mario Party, Rayman Raving Rabids) then this will be right up your ally.

The game works like this, before every Party Challenge you must race in a Mario Kart-esque game, the winner of the game then gets bonuses from the party game that you play afterwards.

I (22) sat down with my wife (21) and threw this in, it was fun for the first hour and she got bored. But this game has a few gems....

Online play is nice, no lag, feels balanced and is fun.

Gamer score is easy enough to gain that every other game or so your most likely unlocking something, and for your game score junkies out their - this will probably be an easy 1,000.
