Viva Pinata review

  • The vividly colorful, cheerful world
  • Testosterone-drenched gameplay
  • Smacking unruly pinatas
  • Keeping the peace among pinata
  • Trying to select and direct flying pinatas
  • Clearing out older pinatas

Viva Pinata is a terminally cute game, so while almost guaranteed to suck the kiddies in, it's a tough sell for the trigger-happy Halo crowd. It's also fairly short if your goal is getting every pinata in the game to become a resident in your garden. Still, pumping out the necessary number of pinatas to earn Master Romancer and other serious rewards should keep even the most experienced gamers busy and sedated for a good week. If you're feeling a little genre-claustrophobia in the Xbox 360 camp, give Viva Pinata a try... it'll almost certainly surprise you.
