    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its okay, but not as good as the console version Its a game I got because I wanted to play Viva Pinata but not have to buy an Xbox 360. I played in on a 3DS instead of the intended DS, so I think that explains the grainy/blocky graphics. The introduction/ instruction was extremely lacking, but if I recall correctly the console version was too. There are odd sections of episode-like instruction that you can chose to play through; they are activated when you reach certain points and are Very Frustrating. The space for keeping pinatas is a lot smaller than the console game: only about enough room for six "houses." As someone that likes to collect them, I found this rather upsetting. After "romance" there is a scene that's just like the console, but there is not mini-game. I honestly don't know why there wouldn't be either because it seems like it would be great on the DS. There is a "sand-box" mode but its not really fun, its just there to show the hidden pinatas I think.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive 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.
