As I’ve said a million times in the past, I have no real problem with the original Angry Birds and the initial string of sequels. Yes, it was a derivative of Crush the Castle, but Banjo-Kazooie was a derivative of Mario 64 — and so on throughout history.
Angry Birds 2 is actually the 13th game in the franchise—a lucky number, that.It comes on the heels of years of Angry Birds fever, hype, merchandise, and various and sundry imitators.
It’s a slick new take on the old formula—much more than just a new installment in the franchise—with better graphics and a few new twists.
The concept is wacky yet straightforward: the birds are angry because their enemies, the pigs, keep stealing their eggs. In retaliation, they launch themselves one-by-one via slingshot at the pigs’ island headquarters, the challenge being to choose the trajectory that will inflict maximum damage.
The handy thing about this abstract premise is that it can mean anything you want, or nothing in particular. The pigs are smirking green blobs, reminiscent in spirit of the Blue Meanies from Yellow Submarine, allowing players of every stripe to find the same satisfaction in foiling their plans and bringing them to ruin.
Rovio has been experimenting wildly with the Angry Birds series since 2009, with some games following the bird-slinging gameplay of the original such as Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio and the two Angry Birds Star Wars games.
But then there’s also the downhill racer Angry Birds Go!; action game Angry Birds Transformers; RPG adventure Angry Birds Epic and of course the match three puzzle games Angry Birds Fight! and Angry Birds Pop!
The sad part is that unlike most of the iterations in the past, there’s no option for a premium version. Say what you will about the franchise, but Rovio has generally done pretty well in a sea of freemium-fests over the years, providing fans with a way to buy a game outright. But with Angry Birds 2, you’ll have to suffer through all of the fixin’s that Rovio forced into the game.
C’est la vie. It was nice while it lasted, but I doubt I’ll keep it installed. I hate waiting for most things in life, but if I’m going to wait then it had better be worth it. Angry Birds 2 is not.
