Party Animals is more like Mario Party. It is nothing like Viva Pinata.

Party Animals - I think thats a bunch of minigames. No gardens or Pinata making stuff

The devil knows Jesus too but who is going to obey & worship Jesus. "repent & sin no more"

Even if you like minigames, Party Animals got pretty poor reviews. You can't pick any kind of options or play the minigames outside of the main game, if I remember correctly. Still sounds like a good game for kids though.

Man, I kinda want Sega Rall Revo for that price. But read the Amazon user review... That dude sounds right. I heard it's impossibly hard elsewhere too. Damn shame Sega mucked it up like that.

Dead Rising is one of the top 5 best games on the Xbox 360, as far as I'm concerned. I played through it several times.

Seconded, be aware of the slightly annoying save system, but it's a great game.

EDIT - I was tempted by Sega Rally but I think it's got a lot of problems. Sounds like Dirt is far superior and I already have that.

I really liked that Harry Potter game, not perfect but very fun all the way though the game I though.

My kids and I LOVED the first VIVA PINATA.

The second one is a bunch of mini games and not the premise of the original game (which my kids still LOVE to play and garden in) but my kids love the 4player competitions of the new one like the belching contests, apple eating contests, and the pinatas beating a pinata contest (too funny) featuring all the same characters and personalities from the original game.

I'm pissed I used the 15% off TRU coupon and paid $42.00 for it only week and 1/2 ago and could have got it for $29.99 from amazon !! AAARGGHH..

Here's a thought, you could always download the demo from XBOX live and try it first, eh ?

Why not just buy the Amazon copy and return it with your TRU receipt? Perfectly legal, and I imagine TRU has an extended return window in place.

There's a demo available on XBLM, methinks.

If TRU really allows you to return open games, they would be the only ones.

Hey thanks for the post, I've been waiting for Dead Rising to go down in price and especially from Amazon.

Fingers crossed Oblivion follows :)

Apparently that one just went over your head. Allow me to break it down, tiny step by tiny step.

1) Buy Viva Pinata Party whatever the hell it's called from TRU a week and a half ago. Save your receipt.

2) Open it, enjoy it, love it.

3) Order copy from Amazon at cheap discounted price.

4) When your SEALED Amazon copy arrives, return it with your TRU receipt for a refund of the TRU price.

End result: you've been playing it for several days and you still got it for the Amazon discount price.

I rather enjoyed the Viva Pinata demo. Now I have to find some friends to play it with...I'll try baiting some with free chocolate cupcakes.

Man, first Halo 3 Legendary is $60 on Amazon, now the LE is $50? They sure are giving some crazy discounts on that game so soon after its release. It's not like it needs any encouragement to sell either...

Some decent prices on those other games too. Wonder why Party Animals received such a deep discount...is it selling as badly as the original Viva Pinata did? Seems like that franchise just isn't doing very well for some reason.

Looks like they dropped the prices on most of their family games - Cars, Viva, Looney Toons. Must be some family promotion or push from Microsoft.

In for Party Animals at that price, especially considering I have $20 in credit from the Rock Band debacle. Plus, games like Party Animals that will actually get me and the girl playing together are always worth more than the sum of their parts.
