Gamer 2.0: Viva Pinata: TiP Preview

Planting some flowers, watering them, and raising some husbandry doesn't sound like the next exciting game idea, but these core elements launched Harvest Moon to rave reviews and a cult following over ten years ago. Rare attempted to use these same basic ideas to launch Viva Piñata on the Xbox 360 in late 2006.

Despite above-average reviews, the game didn't sell as well as Microsoft felt it should. Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise is their attempt to bring a nearly identical game to a broader audience so that it (potentially) receives the commercial success they feel it should.

The story is too old to be commented.
