5.0 out of 5 stars Not Disappointed At All! September 9, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First I want to say that the graphics on this game are so amazing! Bright beautiful colors. It really brings out the best of Viva Pinata on XBox 360. The graphics of course won't be EXACTLY like the 360 version, but they are great for Nintendo DS. Right up there with the graphics on Animal Crossing.

When you first start the game there is a tutorial. I was very happy with this, because it wasn't as long as the one on 360. The 360 instructions seemed to go on forever. This was very easy and quick, and everything is easy to understand, easy to control.

You still get the basic tools like the shovel (Tap, Whack, and Make Dirt), watering can, and grass packet. Planting the seeds are the same as on 360. Get a seed from Seedos or at the store, decide where you want it, press the Plant button. Water it, and be sure you don't OVER water it or they will die.

In this game there are garden personalities. Which just means you will see a funny episode every now and then, and it is to bring excitement and entertainment into the game. The episodes are set up just like the Viva Pinata series on TV.

Game Modes:

Garden-This will be your main garden, and basically the game. Be a gardener and Pinata raiser to attract new residents. Try to aim towards 100% completion or make your own personal garden goals.

Episodes-Allows you to play any Episode that you've unlocked. New Episodes will become available as you make progress in the main garden, and playing through Episodes will grant you knowledge of more advanced techniques and tactics.

Playground-As the name suggests, this is the quick and easy way to create a temporary garden where everything is free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva La Pinata September 15, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I have to say WOW!

It is incredible how much fidelity to the original game there is.
The big difference in graphics besides the obvious De-Rezing required to get this title on the DS is that you have only the front isometric view. This view can not be spun around, so sometimes it can be difficult to see pinatas around trees. However, I did not realize I was missing this feature till I was a few hours into the game. So, to me, it was not a big deal.

What you do get is the ability to play this game anywhere and not tethered to the TV. For me, that was big. You can play in little increments. Close the lid and the DS pauses the game. Open the lid and pick up later right where you left off.

The other feature that is a big improvement is the touch screen funtionality. Being able to quickly manuver through your garden and select your tools quickly kept this game from being tedious.

Unlike the 360 version, there is no silly maze to navigate when your pinatas romance. This really sped the game up. I am very happy to see that go since it used to drive me nuts.

If you have a collector type personality and enjoyed that aspect in games like Pokemon, this game is for you. I loved attacting new pinatas to my garden. Growing plants and trees. Getting Pinatas to change and evolve. It's just great fun.

I would reccomend this to anyone who liked Pokemon, Animal crossing, or Harvest moon

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Comparable to the Original!! October 5, 2008
By Sandra
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Since I am in transit from one place or another, and often am looking for something to occupy my time during those times, I picked up Viva Pinata:Pocket Paradise on the urging of my brother, who plays the XBox version.

I am not disappointed! It is a very interactive game and it keeps you thinking every step of the way. It reminds me of Sims2 in that you have to be very diligent in caring for your pinatas. So anyone who is a hardcore Simmie will take to this game well.

The only disappointment is that the sounds (apart from the opening intro) are very low - so if you are somewhere noisy, you won't hear some of the warning sounds from the game (like when a Ruffian is messing up your garden).

Other than that, I am very happy with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Game October 31, 2009
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
-logs on to dads account, no i'm not buying anything-
I love this game, 99% percent of the kids in my class think it's about hitting pinatas with bats, it's not, it's a complicated eco-system of pinata creatures, A GUIDE:

Getting started:
When you first start out 2 or 3 things happen:
1 you have to sign the deed to the garden, you can just scribble if you want too
2 you'll have to name the file, i give it a name based on what the garden happens to be about:
Pretztail Paradise, Bunnycomb ranch, Dragonoche kingdom, ect. or you can do your name
3 depending on whether or not it's your first time playing, you will have to do a few tutorials, no their not at all hard, so don't go awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww this is a waste of my time, their incredibly helpful, so finish them and you have your garden

Starting your Garden:
You will have a weed covered garden when you start out, GREAT! Pull out your shovel and start clearing, leave a bit and keep it through the whole game until you get a dragonache egg (i'll explain), when your about half way done, a little gray worm will wander in, keep working bang on the old junk, the little worm is going to start getting color ignore him and keep working, by the time your done you should have a resident, now you have to prepare to get the guy a home, so call up your favorite builder, he'll do this first house for free, after a bit another wormy thing will come along and you'll have two, select one, drag them together, and they'll do a dance, and you'll soon have another tiny guy to take care off

Getting more pinatas:
As you move along in the game, you must take it upon your self to buy all the seeds you can get, plant them, and soon you'll have new pinatas appearing.
