Summary: Parents need to know that Angry Birds Trilogy is a compilation of three popular physics-based puzzle games long available for various phone and tablet platforms. It's extremely accessible to start, and safe for pretty much all ages (the worst it gets are some cartoonish piggy faces with black eyes), but the puzzles become much more challenging -- perhaps too challenging for younger kids -- as the game wears on.
Review: Angry Birds Trilogy on the 3DS is still overshadowed by its mobile brethren
14 October 2012
Excerpt: We've already discussed the benefit of having Angry Birds Trilogy on platforms in our Xbox 360 review. Sure, the $40 price tag may be tough for some to accept, but those that do will get their money's worth through HD transfers of their favorite games, online leaderboards, and comfortable analog controls. With that, what about a system that's competing directly with the iPad on the mobile front?
Review: Angry Birds Trilogy on consoles is the HD version of a game you never knew you wanted
13 October 2012
Excerpt: It was inevitable. One of the biggest franchises in the world combining with one of the biggest publishers in the world…only a matter of time. But Activision has finally gotten a hold of Rovio's Angry Birds , and have brought them to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with the release of Angry Birds Trilogy . Though it seems like nothing more than a tremendous cash-in, at least the companies put in enough content to make it worthwhile.
Conclusion: The verdict Overall the game is still Angry Birds, but with out the quick accessibility of the mobile device it just doesn’t capture the same effect and seems very hard to get into. Also the game is the same as what most people would have already played so there is really nothing new which I must say is a big let down to most gamers.
Conclusion: Concept: Take the insanely popular mobile game, polish the graphics, throw in a few extra levels, raise the price, and bring it to consoles
Graphics: Angry Birds looks sharp and colorful in HD, and extra little flourishes all over the screen easily make this the best-looking version
Sound: The catchy theme is here, along with the moderately annoying bird squawking and pig snickering
Playability: Playing with a controller feels great, and is now my preference.
Excerpt: Depending on how cynical you run, you may think porting a series of super-cheap, uber-popular touch-screen games and selling them in a $40 bundle is either the greatest or the greediest idea ever. Our advice: don’t think, just play. However you look at it, this compilation of three Angry Birds games — the original, Rio , and Seasons editions — offers a ridiculous amount of content, with more than 700 levels (including 19 new ones) of puzzley, fowl-launching hijinks.
Pros: + Many hours and levels of addictive bird-soaring shenanigans., + Looks great; controls quite well with a 360 controller.
Excerpt: Who does not know Angry birds? They are everywhere; in toys, stickers, pillows, cups, and now finally they are on the PS3, Xbox 360 and 3DS. Angry birds is a simple game yet so addictive. The objective is to eliminate the bad piggies with your angry birds (of course). Each level gets more difficult and you will need to use some strategy and critical thinking in order to beat some of the hardest levels.To be more specific about the objective, you are given a certain...
Summary: What a popularly hated game Angry Birds has become. These Bird-haters are characterised by avian apologists as too-cool-for-casual hipsters. Blind naysayers who just don't appreciate Rovio's vision. Rovio got there first, and it delivered an exquisite balance of rapid-replay compulsion, with perfection hunting providing the longer, hardcore game.
Pros: Looks good, runs well
Cons: Price is insulting, Where's Angry Birds Space?, Just 19 new levels, Sorry, explain the price again?
