Microsoft sent me a review copy of Viva Pinata yesterday, and as always I started a game so I could train a bit before recording the first 10 minutes. 3 hours of gameplay later, I realize it's already late and I really should start recording the video. So I start it with a new garden on another profile, and once again I get totally hooked, this time for another 2 hours of "just a bit more".
To my surprise, Viva Pinata is a very deep and complete game, totally addictive. Yes it looks cute, but beneath this cuteness there is a very complex gameplay. I still can't believe how good this game is, it has some small flaws I'll detail tomorrow with the second part of the video, but I totally recommend buying it if you are even a tiny bit into micromanagement games. It's that good. Update: The second part of the video is now online.
