not all can find joy in this. the begining is an endless lecture.
viva pinata is a game where you take care of pinatas by breeding them so they can do the romance dance to get an egg. pinatas have different requirements although not hard the game did get rather boring for me. i would mark this game as pass for a casual gamer with varied intrest... i doubt a hardcore gamer would look at this game. that being said a gamer with intrest and patience for farming simuolations may enjoy this.
overall: pass on rent
pass on buy
Viva Pinata is a game that you don't see a lot of, especially one done so well. Rare's Xbox games may not be the best but this an exception. Viva Pinata is half garden simulator, half pet simulator and it's a lot more fun than it sounds. First off the graphics are amazing, the grass looks great and so do the pinatas. You start off making dirt and grass then pinatas start to come to your garden. Your objective is to make the pinatas stay and become residents. You eventually start make homes for pinatas and helping them mate. You will start to level up getting better shovels, grass, and get other items like water cans. Not everything is easy though, sour will come and try to ruin your garden plus Ruffians will try to destroy your garden and it's pinatas, thankfully you can beat them with your shovel. Viva Pinata is a very unique game that I suggest you at least check out.

The characters are fun but there is nothing to the game I wouldn't even call this adventure, you're just sitting around waiting for new pinatas within a small space that soon becomes home to new pinata, that you don't have room for! The only creatures I could breed were the whirlms (worms). This game did not interest me, the Sims are not this boring. I was and am a big fan of Rare, the game company that came up with Banjo and Kazooie as well as bad fur day from the Nintendo 64 that I grew up playing. I suggest that you do not rent this game! from your friend Wolf_gamer, happy gaming.
