You know when a title is exclusive to a platform it’s going to be good and this addition to the Viva Pinata series doesn’t fail to deliver the fun. And this time you can bring your friends – online or in the same room – for extra co-op gameplay. Currently Play.com has it at a stonkingly low price of £4.99, less than half the price of the nearest rival we can find, which is Coolshop at £11.99!
Just like the original Viva Pinata, TiP drops you in control of a patch of land that you cultivate to attract all the colourful residents of Pinata island and crammed with 30 more demanding animals, you’ll be kept busy making sure they're all happy.
Even if you have played the first game this follow up is worth snapping up. The new animals with all their entertaining actions and reactions means even experienced players will enjoy this. The co-op player mode is also good fun for showing off your garden, though it doesn’t work as well as say Animal Crossing. However the local play does work better enabling two players to interact to a greater degree.
It’s gripping in a Sims way. You’ll find hours of your life evaporating while you try to buy gifts to keep your piñata happy, tending the garden, breeding the little guys and collecting new ones. Fun for everyone, it’ll even melt the heart of the most die-hard Gears of War fan.
