For kidults everywhere,
This review is from: Viva Pinata (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I'd never played any kind of simulation game before and wasn't interested in the idea of them to be honest. But I have to say Viva Pinata is just huge fun and utterly charming. I was totally absorbed by it for two days after it arrived and still find it interesting weeks later. The graphics and general design are fantastic - there's are tribal art themes in the animals and backgrounds that are gorgeous to look at. The wonderful background music creates a great atmosphere of Disney and Spielberg. And the game has got the balance between challenge and achievement exactly right. For anyone bored of the usual blowing things up nonsense this is a bresh of fresh air. This is a game for everyone; young kids, families and anyone with a bit of a child still left inside.
