Product Details:

"Viva Piñata," an original intellectual property and the latest innovative gaming experience from leading U.K.-based developer Rare Ltd., invites gamers to create an immersive world where living piñatas inhabit an ever-changing environment. Beginning with a few basic tools, players build and take control of this environment, using their creativity and imagination to attract, protect and manage over 60 different piñata species that can visit their world and make it their home. Utilizing hundreds of customizable elements, players can create a unique piñata paradise.

Pushing the capabilities of the hardware, "Viva Piñata" brings a vibrant and engaging gaming experience to the Xbox 360 platform. Appealing to kids, adults, casual gamers and enthusiasts alike, this uniquely customizable and social game rewards and challenges all players regardless of their skill level.

The "Viva Piñata" gameplay experience presents a customizable, social and spontaneous world in which gamers play an absolutely crucial role. The "Viva Piñata" world is an evolving paradise teeming with fantastic living piñata creatures and vibrant plant life, all determined by the player's choices and actions. "Viva Piñata" boasts the following qualities:

* Customizable. "Viva Piñata" allows players' imaginations to run wild by providing them with expansive freedom and choice:
- Your world. Your choice of contents will determine which of the piñata species are attracted to your world, since they all have individual requirements. Sowing grass, digging ponds, planting flowers and growing trees all affect which of the unique piñatas you will see. It's not just about plants, either; there is a whole range of ornaments and structures that could be decisive. Your reward for creating an appealing paradise is to watch the piñatas visit and eventually reside there, which is wherethe fun really starts.
- Your piñatas. Once you have resident piñatas, you can begin to personalize your loyal community. Piñatas can be individually named and given their own personally designed tag to put on display as a declaration of their home turf. And the customization doesn't end there. You can make the colorful critters more distinctive by customizing them with all kinds of costumes and accessories.

* Social. The "Viva Piñata" community is a rewarding place to be, whether you remain within the boundaries of your own world or venture out into the real world or your friend's piñata world via Xbox Live, the first and only global, unified online console games service.
- Interact with the piñatas. Getting to know and understand the personalities and requirements of your piñatas is essential if you want them to stay happy and thrive. Make your world their ideal paradise, and they'll want to raise a family and expand your community.
- Interact with the characters. Players decide how much help they want from the local guides, shopkeepers and work force. Go it alone or get them involved - you choose.
- Interact with other players online. Via the Xbox Live online community, players can contact other gamers to lend a hand, lay down a competitive challenge or trade items.

* Spontaneous. "Viva Piñata" is a constantly changing world where anything can and does happen:
- It's happening outside. It's not just new piñata species that are drawn to your world; untamed sour piñatas with bad attitudes and troublemaking ruffians do their worst to spoil your creation and must be dealt with.
- It's happening inside. Maintaining harmony within a growing community isn't always easy when rivalries, illness, injuries and even candy-spilling fights occur. If players turn their backs, who knows what their piñatas will do?
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages. addictive and creative Lots of stuff to do. Some of the hidden secrets of the game are really hard to figure out on your own but I have no shame looking them up. Super fun trying to get all the piñata to romance and become resident in your garden.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something Rare didn't mess up. Viva Pinata is good for what it is. An animal/garden simulator. While it is obviously not for everyone, it is quite a fun game with lots to do in it. (I've personally spent 50+ hours on it) With plenty to do in the game it's sure to keep you coming back. Simple to learn, fun to play, and a perfect gift for casual gamers, and collecters. Oh, and the only real flaw is that the sound effects, music, and one-liners from the characters get real annoying, real fast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good then boring The day I got this game I played it for a couple of hours and enjoyed it. It was strangely addicting. Then on about the third day of playing I couldn't force myself to put the game in my Xbox 360. The game is so repetitive that it gets boring after 3 or 4 hours. There are so many better games out there that I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you had almost ever game out there. I guess if you like planting a garden for pinatas then you may like this. I just didn't enjoy it for very long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hesitant At First I'm 27 so with that being said I would like to say that I was at first hesitant about playing this game because of the cover of the game, it has a child like quality to it, image wise, however, as I played the game I came to realize that the game is a lot of fun if you like gardening simulation games. It's a fun game and I recommend it completely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for a while... I can honestly say that I had fun with this game and played it for about 10hrs straight, but it got sort of boring after a while... Breeding the different pinatas is very addicting and you may find yourself playing for hours on end, but that's really all there is to it. I really only come back to this game when I need a break from a more hardcore, blood-curdling game. I recommend trying it out for yourself, but I just can't put too much time and effort into it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strangely addictive...... I consider myself a pretty extreme hardcore gamer, I try to play most the major titles every year, and am an avid xbox live gamer, so its needless to say this game was for my little brother. I thought the idea sounded stupid, I thought it looked stupid and even watching it being played I was convinced it was stupid. Then one day my brother asked me to play for him while he did some chores, I annoyingly agreed and started playing for him. 20 minutes later when he returned, I refused to relinquish the controller. I was obsessed with the game and would play it for hours if I was bored of other games, and it was the first video game me and my brother bonded over, it got to the point where we co-managed a garden and would sit there with each other, watching each other play and giving tips on how to improve OUR garden. Me and my brothers shared pinata garden is actually one of my fondest video game memories.
