Man this game is getting excellent reviews so far! I never had any expectations for this game, and it's nice to see an alternative kind of game getting that kind of appaise! :)

It's a huge amount of fun, graphically beautiful, and sounds great in 5.1. I was surprised that the controls worked so well for a game of this type. The character nuances that have been added to the different pinatas are great. Though I'm kinda concerned... my first Whirlm pinata got into a fight with a syurpernt, and lost. He's been curled up in a ball, whimpering to himself for days now. =/

I found myself playing for hours without realising where the time went. Unlike GoW where it's all action, all the time, Viva Pinata has a leisurely pace with lots to read and experiment with. The game may seem childish on the surface, but it has a lot of depth, and good resource management is critical to the success of your garden and the happiness of your pinatas.

Wow, this game is pretty fun and addictive. Once the game lets you loose, some things get outta control for a sec but usually things get back to normal. I'm thinking about starting a new game and just learning from my mistakes lol. Great game, definitly worth the $30!

30 bucks is a damn fine price but I still would like a demo for it. C'mon rare! Make a demo already!!!

Why not just go to your local Blockbuster or wherever and rent it? I did that and I'm glad because it's really not my kind of game.

I hope they do... I downloaded the video without reading thinking it was a demo :o

None of the Blcokbusters in my area had them . . . I'd rent it to see if you like it, but if you think you would be even somewhat interested in it, go to Best Buy and buy it.
