Excellent

Better Than the Original

An improved, but not much different, version of the original Viva Pinata. Good fun for the whole family and all age groups.

This game is like the first Viva Pinata, only with (I think) more pinatas, and more importantly, more instruction. It didn't take me as long to figure out the basics, and even some of the more advanced ideas as the first game. Once I got it figured out, I lost hours of my life. I looked up and realized I hadn't moved in 8 hours. The music is solid, the pinatas are entertaining, the mechanics are great, the controls are simple (and even faster and simpler once you pick up some of the less obvious controls). My only complaint is that it does crash from time to time. The picture freezes, and I can't get back to the Dashboard without killing the power first. This happened to me twice in one weekend. Fortunately, the auto-save is very good, and I don't think I lost anything in the crashes.

Viva Pinata TIP

The game is fun, but basically the same as the first with newly added lands to collect Pinata from. The achievements are harder to obtain on TIP than in the first game. It is a great rental but would not purchase it if you already own the first one.
