Even with Telepods and needing to pay to unlock content, Angry Birds Star Wars 2 is another top-notch game from Rovio. The prequels received fair treatment, between stellar new characters - even Jar Jar - and elaborate level designs. Best of all, there's no sign of whiny Anakin - just the one that loves to pod race. Now you have no excuse. Buy it, you must, as Yoda would say.
Angry Birds Star Wars II’s increased emphasis on power-ups and toy sales don’t ruin the appeal or fun of the more than 100 levels included at launch, even if it does feel a little gross. This is another polished and clever evolution of the ever-expanding Angry Birds formula. If Rovio continues combining the depth of its three-star puzzle solutions with the casual ease of flinging a bird and activating its special powers, this is a series that could still just be getting started.
Some may question the motivations of the Angry Birds Star Wars II cross-pollination, but ultimately the result is another undeniably fun permutation on the already addictive Angry Birds recipe. Even though the runtime may be down a bit, it will no doubt be bolstered by future free updates down the road. There is no need to second guess this $0.99 purchase. Think of it as an investment in the future of entertainment that will pay dividends in the coming months. The Force is strong with this one. This IS the game we're looking for.
An unfortunate turn to the microtransaction Dark Side causes some unnecessary problems with balancing but gaming’s odd couple remains a surprisingly successful pairing.
Like the prequel trilogy itself, Angry Birds Star Wars II just isn't as interesting as what came before it, and seems to have forgotten much of what made the series popular in the first place.
