Angry Birds 

 

I have lost track of how many times I have requested a certain game get ported over. Angry Birds is a little different case though. See I have not played it before. I have heard about it, so when I was told it was coming to the Playstation 3, and Playstation Portable via the Playstation Network, I knew we have to cover it. So I put in my request, and a download code later I was playing Angry Birds.

The story is pretty simple. These birds get their eggs stolen by these pigs. So they are now out to get the pigs. Who happen to be green, and make me think of green eggs and ham for some odd reason. Anyways, you launch the angry birds at the pigs to make them go away in a puff of smoke. Levels get more difficult as pigs are behind glass, in wooden structures, and even concrete ones.

The birds, the pigs, and all of the various destructible items look good in Angry Birds. The backgrounds look okay, but this game shows its iPhone/iPod Touch roots. The colors are generally bright and upbeat. I love the whole golden egg concept in Angry Birds. There is some violent content in Angry Birds, as you can have things like boards, and rocks fall on the round pigs. It is not graphic, and over quickly.

There is one word I would use to describe the sounds in Angry Birds. That word is happy. Especially after solving a level. The birds are celebrating, and it made me feel so wonderful. The music in Angry Birds is also very good, and fits the theme of this game perfectly. I could tell when I destroyed something due to the sounds. I also learned to be patient because sometimes things fall over slowly, but have the desired outcome.

Angry Birds is a very addicting game. I found myself playing tough levels over and over again until I finally completed them. I also found that after beating a level I wanted to see what was next. There are an insane amount of levels in Angry Birds. The price point is really good in Angry Birds as well. Yes we were provided a download code. But now after playing Angry Birds, I would purchase it.

The last trajectory is shown which makes minor adjustments much easier. My one gripe about Angry Birds is I had to guess for my first launch. The structures and pigs are so far away that I routinely wasted a shot. I got better as time went on, and I suppose if they showed a guide all the way to the end it would be a little too easy. Practice makes perfect, and my gripe is a small one.

The core of Angry Birds is getting revenge. I can't kid myself on that. I like Angry Birds, and I really enjoyed it. But I have to be honest about the life lesson it teaches. Now some may argue that Angry Birds teaches to get back what is yours. I can see that argument which is why this game receives a passing score for this section. I would love to see sequels to this kind of game in the near future. I am also pleased that Chillingo brought this game to the PS3 and PSP.
