  1. The complexity of micromanaging the land, meeting the needs social and mating needs of piñatas, and gaining experience for future upgrades may be too much for some kids to keep up with. Older gamers, on the other hand, will find the game greatly surpasses standard kid fare.

    It’s a creative experience that requires plenty of problem solving in a pretty unique and gentle setting. Yes, animals do eat each other (well, they break each other and eat the candy inside) and mate, but overall, it’s one of the highest quality family friendly titles out on the market.
  3. The PC version of Viva Piñata is every bit as enjoyable as the Xbox 360 original, assuming your system is one that it chooses to run on.
