Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise
Normally when a game is platformed from a core system to the Nintendo DS, it is usually pretty nerfed. That isn't the case at all for Viva Pinata for the DS. It is essentially the exact same game as the Xbox 360 version, but the touch screen makes it even easier to control. The graphics aren't bad at all for the DS. This game is probably one of my favorite DS games that i've ever played. The ability to take it with you on the go is definitely a plus too. The game is full of things to do, like trying to get new pinatas to enter your garden, or trying to romance your pinatas to get more. You can customize your garden in any way that you want by adding water, grass, dirt, tall grass, or even pavement. Overall this is exactly like the Xbox 360 version and definitely worth the buy if you enjoyed the older one.
I agree, its gonna be good.
Viva Pinata is one of those games that if you have not played it, when you see it you just...have...to...have...it. (As Fergie would say) Its so popular it spawned a very popular cartoon series which my son watches on a regular basis. The original game, the Party Animals version and the upcoming "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" for the 360 are must haves, but now with a portable version for DS coming its just gotten that much better. The control on the 360 took some getting used to, as you use the joysticks for control which can be a little overwhelming for some people at first, but with the point and click interfact of the DS's touch screen this will be quite a gem. I highly recomend anyone whos a fan of the Viva Pinata series, or anyone who has thought it "looked cool" but never bothered to try it in the past to give this one a try, its gonna be great.
For people who haven't played Viva Pinata it is not just for kids. Though it is appropriate for children, the game play is in depth enough to keep anyone who enjoys sim type games (more similarly Animal Crossing) entertained. For anyone who has played Viva Pinata and become addicted like I have, you will be thrilled with how well the game play is on the DS. Of all the games that are modified for the DS after being released on another console, I think this game has been the most successful. The graphics are decent and some of the best for this platform, the game play is almost identical to the XBOX 360 version and the touch screen actually makes it easier to interact in the game. I am so excited that I can now take one of my favorite XBOX 360 games with me everywhere.
OMG! I can't wait to get this! I played it on the xbox, and it is so much fun! I can't wait to play it on the DS. It is gonna be real different because you use a stylus, but who cares? No one. I can't wait!
