Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (107 ):

ANGRY BIRDS gives players the same kind of visceral, destructive joy as a console game like Boom Blox. Launching items at a stack of blocks or planks, and watching them tumble to the ground is undeniably satisfying. Of course, here, the items you're launching are birds. And the blocks you're knocking down are landing on pigs. But the cartoony graphics and tongue-in-cheek humor does make you laugh at the destruction rather than cringe at it. The game can be quite challenging, and seems to get more so with each successive update. New levels almost always seem harder than the previous ones -- and there are currently 240 levels. However, the addition of the earth-shaking Mighty Eagle is a boon to stuck and frustrated players. It also provides replay value for levels already beaten, since there are all new Mighty Eagle-specific challenges that have also been added.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
