As a free-to-play game, Angry Birds Go! does a lot of things right. It never makes you feel like you have to spend money, it gives you plenty of things to do and, while there’s a point where it would seem that you can’t play any more unless you spend some cash, all you have to do is wait a little while and you’ll be able to play more without any problems. The visuals are gorgeous, the gameplay is addictive and with the little physical karts that you can add to the game, I can see a lot of Telepods making their way under Christmas trees this year (I certainly hope there’s one or two under mine). Angry Birds Go! is addictive, funny and fun – exactly what you want from a game with the Angry Birds name – and it’s very nice to see Rovio make an attempt at a totally different genre. About time.
Ultimately, Angry Birds Go! is a good game partially ruined by a paywall commonly found in mobile titles. That, and the lack of offline or online multiplayer means having to repeat the same old mini-games without real competition. We like Rovio's game, but would've gladly paid for a more full-featured product.
Angry Birds Go! is a game that looks great and plays well, but it’s hampered by design flaws; both in its monetization and its attempts to make kart-racing idiot-proof. The problem, though, is that kart-racing has always been idiot-proof. By stripping out so much of what works in kart racing games, Angry Birds Go! fails to capture the same heart and passion of its competitors. Angry Birds Go! is a good game. It’s just not the great game it could have been.
Its greediness is unfortunate, because Angry Birds Go! is a bright, colorful kart racer with upbeat music and cute, cheery sound effects. I did have a lot of fun smashing fruits with my kart, and the races, in isolation, were a good way to pass some time. On top of that, it’s polished and plays well. Its downfall is in the outrageously priced microtransactions, which turn it into a repetitive, shallow grind. It’s the kind of game that I would have liked to sit down and play at length, but its freemium design make it only playable in short bursts. Otherwise, it’s a repetitive, tedious example of why people hate on microtransactions.
Ett välkomponerat multiplayerläge hade kunnat rädda upp det hela rätt rejält. Så pass rolig är racingen i grunden. Dessvärre saknas detta helt och hållet sånär som på möjligheten att jämföra resultat med vänner, och Angry Birds Go! når som resultat inte ens upp till betyget godkänt.
