Bad

What. Is. this?

If you're into kiddy party games, you might love it? I'm not though, I did however like Viva Pinata (The Original). So I find this game in my mail box, open the GF case and put it in my Xbox. 5, maybe six minutes later I was so disappointed with the game that I put it back in its mail slip as fast as I could to immediately get rid of it. Doing so I forgot to put the sleeve on the game, so I have to wait for a new mailer pack.. End story.. Not good at all if you are wanting a game like the original Viva Pinata. This is a spin off, that should have never been released.

This is game is for the younger crowd, so it moves very slowly. The graphics are great and it is easy to play!

Who invited all these glitches?

This game would be so much better if it didn't have all these little glitches here and there. Pinatas get stuck sometimes and fail to jump in certain games.

The computer players bump you out of the way far to often and sometimes just attack you rather than playing the game. Ive noticed that they also auto-lock on their targets.

There are a good 20+ minigames BUT they are just a repeat of each other all in a different setting, they are shallow and repetitive. There is no easy, Medium or hard mode and you cannot select your favorite minigames unless you enter practice mode.

Every 1-3 games or so has a "race" in the middle which is annoying and determines and unfair bonus score.

What REALLY ticks me off is that they put doubles of all their characters in the roster! Talk about lazy. Instead of putting male and female versions (making only 4 real characters total) why not add some of their other characters into the game?

I thought this game was fun but it is so hard not to mentions the bad little things about it that i feel it outweighs the good things that make it fun. All in all, this game is rushed and lazy and does not compare to most other party games. I expected better even though it was enjoyable.
