It certainly isn’t because I’ve lost interest in the handheld. Recent releases just hadn’t sparked my interest the way older games did.
Viva PiÃ±ata: Pocket Paradise changed that, and I haven’t been able to put down my DS because of it.
I received the game from the good folks at THQ to review for another site, and I immediately fell in love with its beautiful visuals and addictive gameplay. Viva PiÃ±ata: Pocket Paradise is the best game Rare has made since leaving Nintendo.
For those who care about superficial review scores as opposed to the full text, I gave the game an 8.5 out of 10. Not trying to pimp my wares, I simply want to spread the word about this great game.
If you’re also neglecting your handheld, Viva PiÃ±ata: Pocket Paradise might help you rekindle your love affair with the Nintendo DS.
