Despite the $3.99 price tag -- making it the most expensive version of Angry Birds released -- it’s still worth every penny if you’ve not yet played it. Looking forward, the potential for the franchise is huge, with an incredible amount of people already having played one of the many versions and rumours of a movie spin-off in the works. Having already churned out similar content on a long list of hand-held devices, however, there’s still an Xbox 360, Wii, Windows and a Nintendo DS version to port over before we see Angry Birds 2. We'll be waiting.
Si l'idée de catapulter d'innocents oisillons dans le décor ne vous rebute pas, Angry Birds est un Minis à télécharger d'urgence. 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.
But while Angry Birds is a faithful representation of the original iOS version, it does seem to be highly unstable on the PSP and PS3 – I experienced unexpected system resets and full system lockups more often that I care to admit on each of the two PS3s and two PSPs we used for the testing. It was annoying to say the least, but never annoying enough to keep me from coming back for more. As I said, Angry Birds is a faithful representation of the original, and at $2.50 it is a pretty good deal for a game that can be played on both the PS3 and the PSP. Owners of the original won’t find any new gameplay levels, but they might enjoy the precise analog-based input the PSP and PS3 sticks provide.
God is a Geek
Angry Birds for PSP is not the definitive version of the title (that honour probably goes to the iPad version), but it is a fun diversion to pick up and play for a few minutes at a time whether you choose to have it on your PSP or the PlayStation 3. If you haven’t played Angry Birds before and have an iOS device, it’d be remiss of us not to suggest you start there. However, if you have no other way of playing the game, this is definitely a great chance to see what everyone has been talking about.
There's no denying that Angry Birds is fun, but it could use polish -- such as sharper visuals, a better price and smoother action. It's one of those games I could play for a few hours on a plane or obsess over on my couch.
Between its lackluster presentation on the PS3 and jerky game play on the PSP, the PlayStation Mini version of Angry Birds isn't the best version of the game for either platform. However, at $3.99 and packed with dozens of levels, it's a cheap way to sate your bird-flinging thirst if you don't have an Android, iPhone, or iPad. If you have any of the aforementioned mobile devices, use them. Lower prices, more levels, and a much more satisfying touch-screen control system make this one of the few cases where iPhones and Android phones can handle a game far better than either of Sony's systems.
All that negative stuff said, though, a bad port of a good game still has a good game as its starting point. If you've already got Angry Birds on another platform, you really don't need to get the PSN version too. If you don't, and you don't have any other devices you can download it to, then behind the annoyances there's still a fun little game to play on the PS3, at least. (If you have to play it on the PSP you WILL end up with a claw where your dainty hand used to be).
