What did you think of Angry Birds?

Angry Birds to me is like golf in that it’s more frustrating than fun. However, it’s incredibly rewarding when things go your way in it. I can play something like Cut the Rope – and I did for hours – and get three stars on every level. With Angry Birds, the scoring is a bit to arbitrary for my tastes. I like it, but I feel it would be a better game if it wasn’t so opaque – but that’s me.


Amen! Angry Birds is very frustrating. It’s really a game of chance where you hope that you have the angle of trajectory right. Even if you know how to finish a level there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to.

Give me Cut the Rope or World of Goo any day!

  1. Yup, I have it on my phone, but dislike the weighting towards random chance – especially when you cannot achieve the same result twice. Some of what I thought were the toughest levels I passed by accident.

    Angry Birds? Frustrated Players more like.

  2. Yes, AB are very, very frustrating. Crush the Castle 1 and 2 are so much better. Idea is the same, but they are more fun. Never heard of Cut the Rope but it looks interesting. I need to check it out. World of Goo is a great game.
