"I have to say, when Man Zero walked into my office this past Friday with a copy of Viva Piñata: Trouble In Paradise (the sequel to 2006's sleeper hit, Viva Piñata), my heart was aflutter like the wings of a carefree Sparrowmint.
The original Viva Piñata may have actually been the first Xbox 360 game I really fell in love with. There was something about caring for and breeding cute candy-filled creatures that I just couldn't get enough of. Every time I started to get a little tired of things, a new Piñata showed up, with a new set of challenges to make it take up residency and then have its own cute Piñata babies.
So I guess I DO know why this game is everything I've ever dreamed of. Because somehow Rare has managed to maintain all of the charm and fun of the original, while adding enough tweaks to make me want to do it all over again. Based on what I've read on various gaming Web sites, I know I haven't even scratched the surface as far as what this game has to offer. But I can already tell it's going to be a blast uncovering them all. I can't wait to get home after work to jump back in.
I highly recommend you do the same."
