Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise


Deliciously fun and addictive for all ages. Real men play Viva Piñata (and real women pwn them at it). A sugary sweet combination of gardening skills, defensive shovel maneuvers and...

Additional Piñata and new environments ; Shortcuts ; Alternate play modes including Online Co-op

Menus ; Little more than what the first game should have been

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise


For someone like me, games like Viva Piñata pose a huge threat. Even more than some 50+ hour role-playing game, it is capable of sucking away the hours of my life like nothing else – in fact, in the first one, you actually earn an Achievement for...

Achievements that are actual achievements ; Still as addictive as ever ; Fun new modes

A lot of content that feels expansion-worthy ; Some glitches still abound ; Slight control delay

While Trouble in Paradise has played host to a lot of little tweaks, one of the biggest comes to the multiplayer. Just like in the original Viva Piñata, you can still trades species, items and a variety of other treats (and traps) over Xbox LIVE – and...

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise


With the surprising success that Viva Pinata generated, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was released. Gamers taken in with the addictive game play of the first will feel right at home in Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. If you haven't...

It's hard to improve upon a solid game when making the sequel, but Rare has done that and more with Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. The new elements and gameplay make for a solid release. Even though I had put many hours into the original title, I...

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise


Third in the Viva Pinata series of games starring papery, candy-filled creatures that kids can collect and cultivate in customizable gardens, Trouble in Paradise gives the Xbox 360 some family-friendliness it's otherwise sorely lacking.

The first game in the Viva Pinata franchise received

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise


It's time to don your favourite pair of shades as the ultra-colourful and vibrant critters that inhabit Piñata Island are back with a vengeance (metaphorically speaking, Viva Piñata 3: The REVENGE will tell that particular story). Once again we're all...

A great gardening/breeding game that improves upon the original in many ways, but maybe not enough to justify you paying full price. For the people who have yet to experience the Piñata phenomenon you should pick this up – what's kept you?

Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise


If this sentence makes no sense to you, then you probably missed the phenomenon that was Viva Piñata, the Rare game that showed legions of Xbox-ers how cute and cuddly games could hold universal appeal.

Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise


The candy-filled creatures are back in a sweet sequel that greatly improves on the original.

New environments and pinatas offer variety; much improved inputs and interfaces; great community features encourage sharing and co-op play

Scanning cards requires patience; you've still got to dig through layers of menus fairly often

Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise - Review


What's new this year with Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, be prepared for “maximum candiosity. Rare is introducing Piñata Vision through the means of the Xbox Live Vision Camera. Players can merely show their Vision Camera a Piñata Vision card and...

As for a wishlist for Viva Pinata 3, I hope Rare continues to introduce charming and clever piñatas with every sequel they release. I have no doubt that fans of the original will find that Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise is better than the first and...

Viva Pi?ata: Trouble in Paradise Review (Xbox 360)


creators; that pedigree alone soon had me jumping into the piñata party

Some smaller inclusions also ratchet up the green thumb fun. Dozens of new piñatas, from arid and cold climates, will join all your old faves—of course, you first have to travel to their native lands of Dessert Desert and Pinarctic, respectively, and...
