Viva Pinata is a game about gardening, sounds thrilling doesn't it? Well infact it is. It's up to you to garden your way to the perfect enviroment for all of your Pinata to live in whilst attracting more to the fold. This can be a tricky task at times, like all "management" games it can be a real juggling act keeping everything ticking over nicely. Fortunately the DS stylus makes controlling this game an absolute treat, much easier than the XBox version and for those who have played the original they will find much improvement here when trying to do everything at once! A quick mention must go to the sound and graphics, both of which are excellent by DS standards.
The only problem I can see is the appeal of the game, it's a little too tricky for younger kids and I don't know if the adult appeal will be all that strong, however, for those who want something different and fun then Pocket Paradise is a superb purchase and much better than Gardner's World.
