The A.V. Club
A little variety goes a long way. The goal in each level of this slingshot game is to fling birds against faultily constructed towers until they collapse on green blobs inside. But Angry Birds wisely asks that you engage with the screen after each one is launched. The blue birds, for example, break into three parts when touched in midair, and spray the structure like birdshot. Yellow ones are angular and launch normally, but can be sped up to maximize impact. Your arsenal diversifies in later levels, requiring you to save certain birds to take down certain types of building material—wood, glass, and stone are the most prevalent, and respond differently to different birds. With 105 levels to conquer, new types of bad guys later on, and a built-in trophy system, it's unlikely you'll want for variety…

Still, the game does an excellent job of making you think you can succeed if you try just one more time. That's often not the case, but the game will suck away hours of your life anyway.

Si l'idée de catapulter d'innocents oisillons dans le décor ne vous rebute pas, Angry Birds HD représente le summum de ce que l'on attend d'un smartphone en tant que joueur. La recette du succès ? Un concept riche en idées dans un univers aussi fun que décalé et un gameplay d'une efficacité extrême aussi bien pour le casual gamer que pour le joueur chevronné qui veut toutes les étoiles. Et on dira ce que l'on voudra, mais Angry Birds sur ipéca, c'est fort, très fort ! Pour peu que vous disposiez de la tablette tactile d’Appel, vous aurez accès à une expérience de jeu sublimée et à la quintessence du jeu d'adresse sur support mobile. A noter que le jeu est aujourd'hui disponible sur de plus en plus de supports, de la PS3 à la PSP en passant par le PC et le Mac... vous n'avez donc plus aucune excuse pour ne pas tenter l'expérience des oiseaux en colère...

Game Chronicles
Angry Birds HD is a delight to play, watch, and listen to, and there is endless replay potential for mastering the 60+ levels. My only observation and complaint is the steep introductory price of $4.99 - nearly five times the cost of the iPhone version for no substantial update or exclusive content. This is purely an HD video update with an increase in screen size to support the native resolution of the iPad. It looks amazing but there just seems to be some week one price gouging going on here.

In the end, Angry Birds is your typical cell phone game, but the different elements makes it a very addicting game to play. If you’re a hardcore gamer and are still skeptical, it’s definitely worth at least a look, considering it’s a free download. And by the time you start to question its legitimacy in the video game universe again, you’ll be too immersed in trying to better that one star ranking on the last level you barely got by the day before.

Et il n’y a pas à dire, sa surface d'écran importante contribue réellement à rendre l’expérience de jeu plus plaisante. Alors que sur iPhone on passait beaucoup de temps à zoomer et à dézoomer pour basculer entre vue d’ensemble et vue rapprochée - afin d’avoir un maximum de précision pour lancer les oiseaux et exploser les décors - il est désormais possible d’opter pour une vue d’ensemble du niveau. Et ainsi, d’avoir toujours suffisamment d’espace pour contrôler le lance-oiseaux de manière plus précise. Il est clair que cette version iPad apporte un vrai plus à ce niveau-là.

Angry Birds HD adds a new sheen to the excellent original title, yet offers no new content, features, or substantive enhancements .
