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!

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.
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.
