I hope these improvements eventually make their way over to the proper Angry Birds and/or Angry Birds Seasons, as it would be really sweet to need to deal with a big and crafty boss pig. The collectable items are also a nice touch, really giving reason to replay levels beyond scoring three stars. Really the only down side is the clear display of when additional content is coming, with blank menu spots for May, July, October, and November 2011. I think I prefer just being surprised when an Angry Birds update lands than knowing I have to wait so long... And I doubt I'm alone on that.

Angry Birds Rio is still a very good game, and if you’re a fan of the original and Seasons you will love this one too. There's enough new stuff to keep it feeling fresh and the graphical and sound tweaks should be applauded. It’s just a shame that Rovio couldn’t have found a way of bring more skill into the game. It’s the only thing stopping it from being awesome.

Building on the still-electric success of the original, Angry Birds Rio is a smart, snappy new chapter for the series. The new goals &#Array; freeing birds and shattering monkeys &#Array; offer a nice reprieve from the bird-pig narrative, and the forgiving learning curve makes this a much better play than the punishing Angry Birds Seasons. While the magic of the first Angry Birds &#Array; and its hundreds of stages &#Array; may not be eclipsed here, Angry Birds Rio is well worth playing for any devout fan or younger gamer.

If you are eager to take on new challenges with your favorite birds, then dropping $0.99 on Angry Birds Rio is a no-brainer. For those who have Angry Birds fatigue and have had their fill, there is nothing dramatically new to pull you in. However, Rovio Mobile likely has another hit on its hands with a game that does not seem to be losing its appeal anytime soon.

There are lots of extra items in the Rio game like hidden fruits that you can collect as awards like cages, trees, bananas and pineapples. The music in the Rio game has been enhanced with flavors of Brazilian samba and carnival. The level design doesn’t exactly look Rio like, at least not in the first two released episodes. Most people imagine Rio as being filled with beautiful people on sunlit beaches and blue skies. You won’t find that in this game, yet. But it is exiting to know 4 new stages are upcoming. If you like killing the evil pigs in the original Angry Birds, you may not be so comfortable with the idea of killing cute monkeys and birds. Performance wise the game flows well generally, though I found there is a slight lag issue in a couple of the levels which I hope Rovio can fix soon. But overall, Angry Birds Rio is definitely worth the dollar price tag. You can finish it in probably a weekend or so given the current 60 levels.
