Over the last couple of years Angry Birds has dominated the mobile gaming market and after been pushed to every single platform possible from mobile to web browser it now faces a new challenge. The latest challenge for the franchise is to try its luck with the console gamers and see if it can compete with the triple A titles that are released every month. The Angry Birds trilogy doesn't fail to bring the Angry Birds experience to consoles but does it really have the same effect on the console as it does on the mobile devices? The simple answer is no. It may bring the same great game but on the console it just doesn't offer the quick fun experience of the mobile, no quickly doing a level, 3 staring it and then moving on back to whatever you were doing. You actually have to sit down with you controller or kinect (if you were one of the people the actually brought into that gimmick) and play the game and trust me sending birds flying with a catapult to hit some pigs is fun for the first 10 minutes but after that you realise that it's the same thing over and over again and also the same thing as what you have already completed on you mobile device previously. Even though you have the chance to use kinect I would keep far away from it as the game is around 10 times worst with kinect.
The main problem that the Angry Birds trilogy faces is its repetitive game play, okay so every mission is different but they still rely on the same old gaming mechanic lunch the bird at the pigs. As much as people love it, it gets old quick on the consoles. I have also came across small problems with the game play, when playing on a mobile device it feels a lot easier to aim your birds but on the console it seems to be harder. This will make you constantly have to restart as you keep messing up the first bird that you send flying. Which over time can get annoying.
Graphically the game really isn't much different to the other versions, yes it looks better being brought the big screen but is that a good thing considering you are used to playing on such a small screen? With games there is always one small thing that just gets on my nerves in this game it's the Music. The music never really changes and the sound effects are always the same and after playing for a good 30 minutes, you will find you're self lowering the volume or turning the sound off all together and there is a limit to the amount of squawking birds you can hear in one day.
What is the point of the angry birds trilogy? The point was to bring the game that has sold millions to a new audience. The Angry Birds trilogy offers you the original Angry Birds game, Angry Birds seasons and Angry Birds Rio. Okay so yes they are 3 of the top seeing IOS games and they are great, but on the console they just don't seem to capture the same effect as what I remember on my IPhone.
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.
