If you are familar with the Mario Party concept, you are familar with this game! If not, here you go: it is basically a set of head-to-head minigames. The concept is pretty simple. You start off with a race (there are seven different courses) and then you can play between one to three mini games (your choice) after each race. You can also choose the number of times you race, etc. There is a large number of mini games: more and more are unlocked as you play the game. Up to four people can play at a time.

As to the game, I will let my ten year old daughter take over: "This game is really fun. Because they have some funny comments and funny mini games. After each race, two pinates say funny jokes and the pinatas have funny dances and say funny things when they win. I think this game is good for kids between 6 and 13. My dad thinks it is fun too and he is forty something."

I should add that this game is entirely appropiate for any age range. If your kids like Viva Pinata, they will also like this game. Enjoy!

Great fun! But very different from the original. This is a bunch of mini competitions. The kids love playing against eachother. The graphics are good. My only complaint is there is too much talking in between the games and the pinata's don't always do what your controller is telling it to. But other than that i would reccomend it. My kids 4-10 love it!

I originally purchased this game because my fiancee loves Mario Party for the N64, and I wanted to get a game for our 360 that she would enjoy as much. After searching around for a little while, I found Viva Pinata Party Animals. I read several reviews of people comparing it to Mario Party, so I purchased it from Amazon.

After playing, I can say that the game is a nice attempt to recreate a Mario Party-like game, and while fun, it ultimately isn't as good.

For starters, the way the entire game is set up is that you do a race followed by 1-3 mini-game challenges. 3 is the highest number of mini-games you can do per race, so if you want to have a lengthy game, you're going to be doing 5-7 races just to get enough mini-games to be fun. I would have preferred the ability to play more games per race, or possibly even just make the races a mini-game themselves.

Which brings me to the races: they're fun, but pretty much pointless and easy for one player to dominate. It seems that no matter who I'm playing with, I win every single race. And yes, perhaps I'm better at it than everyone else because I'm a fairly seasoned gamer, but I think a game like this should be about equal for everyone, regardless of gaming experience. That's what makes party games fun - no one wins all the time.

One thing that I like about Mario Party that's missing from Party Animals is the game board itself. The way Party Animals is played is that you do a race followed by 1-3 mini-games, and the characters get different amounts of candy for getting 1st-4th place, and the person at the end of the game that has the most candy wins, etc. You miss the nice luck/random chance element that comes with rolling the dice and being subject to wherever you land.

I got this $20+ game for only $2.72 so I am not complaining one bit! It was used but came just as described - with everything included and in great working condition. No scratches either. I was very pleased!

Party games are usually shovelware. With the exception of a few major franchises (looking at you, Mario Party), these are quick cash-in games that are given little thought and even smaller production values. Viva Pinata Party Animals stands out among the bargain bin party game imitators by looking sleek and polished. The graphics are very nice, the characters have all their voices from the cartoon, it is technically sound, and the game itself oozes charm. For kids that are into the short lived Viva Pinata franchise, they will have an absolute blast with this game, with the recognizable characters, bright graphics and simplicity of the mini games. Everyone else though should beware... because some issues lie within.

There are only 8 selectable characters (each with a color variant, an exciting "extra" if the year was 1995), and out of those there are really only four models, as the other four are female variants on the main four from the cartoon. If you were hoping to play as a Chewnicorn or many of the other charming creatures from the Viva Pinata universe... you are out of luck. This was pure laziness on the developer's part. The mini games themselves have little variety. Plenty of themes on "knock the others over and steal their candy" games, and games that require you to shoot at some target or another. None of them are particularly fun, and it's disappointing to see basically the same kind of mini game reused over and over again.

They did do one thing that was rather daring. Instead of having a main hub or a board game to anchor "Party Animals" to, they used races.
