Angry Birds is a cultural phenomenon. Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon. Put them together and what do you get? Something that shouldn’t really work, but does. The ‘Angry Bird’ games are best played on handheld devices, but this has not stopped various guises of the game making it onto console and this includes ‘Angry Birds Star Wars’. What makes this stand out from your usual frustrated avialae? The basic game remains the same; you are still flinging birds at structures trying to usurp the pigs, but there are also a lot of differences.

For one, the various birds are imbued with new powers that encapsulate their Star Wars character. Luke is Red, a basic bird, but can now swipe a lightsaber mid-flight for added damage. There are also many other birds; Han Solo with a blaster, Ben Kenobi with a force push etc. These changes to the character models sound simple, but really alter how the puzzles can work. On planet based levels, you still have some puzzles that require mere throwing the birds at a wall, but also others that need you to think about the skills of the bird on offer. By having force push or a blaster, you can now access areas of the level that would have been impossible in ‘Angry Birds’.

You may have seen in that last paragraph mention of planet based, this is because the theme of ‘Star Wars’ also opens up the possibilities of space. There are entire levels set in space that have additional gravitational elements that skew the gameplay even further. In total you get hundreds of levels that will require a lot of thought if you plan to three star them all.

However, something is rotten in the house of Skywalker. There is no doubting that the core gameplay of ‘ABSW’ is fun, but it really a console title? Graphically, the game is clean, but very simple; you could almost have played this on the Super Nintendo. Also the gameplay itself feels a little clunky on a joypad. Dragging the sling back with a finger is the best option, but that is saved for the game’s native handheld devices. ‘ABSW’ is fun, but seems very lightweight for a disc release. As a cheaper download title it makes sense, but at £20+ it is not quite cheep enough.

Angry Birds: Star Wars is a fun family game for kids and adults. This game is very addicting and I loved playing through all the levels. This version includes a two Multiplayer Modes (Competitive 2-4 players and cooperative modes - 2 players). Beyond the the levels offered by the Android version there are an additional 20 levels created just for the console game. The game has over 25 Hours of content. There are even unlockable levels including the R2-D2 and C-3PO bonus levels and bonus content.I enjoyed this game and would definitely recommend it to others.

Thank you for reading my review.

Angry Birds Star Wars is a welcome addition to consoles for gamers who don't have a tablet, but the increased price and lack of portability make it a little less tempting.

On the plus side, the humour is appealing and the game treats Star Wars with the sort of loving detail it deserves, with a range of settings from the original trilogy including Tattooine, the Death Star, Hoth, Dagobah, and Cloud City.

There is plenty of content ported over from the original game, as well as some new levels. The birds have been transposed into their Star Wars counterparts with success and each have an ability to aid your destruction, such as Luke's lightsaber being able to cut objects, Obi-Wan can Force Push and Han Solo fires his blaster. This adds to the strategy so you can quickly put together more precise chain reactions.

Unfortunately, there are a few aspects that make it a worse deal than its mobile counterpart. It is a lot more expensive on Xbox 360 and other consoles. There is not the same sense of immediacy without touch controls and the co-op mode is worse than single-player with taking turns.

If you haven't played it before and you want to do so on your Xbox 360, you'll probably get enough value out of it over time, as the gameplay encourages you to replay levels to get a better score, but for everyone else, there are better games for the price.

My 4&5 year olds picked this up no probs straight out the box, double play with the controllers or using the kinect. My wife and I have a sneaky go as well, addictive pig blasting fun!

The star wars theme is well thought out and is not just a little gimmick. Your 'skywalker bird' slices things with his lightsaber, the settings are from scenes and the items are often theme based too.
The mutli-player is very disappointing. You work co-op or compete for high scores. They had such an opportunity to make it like the 'worms' games. I think that would have been much better. Opportunity missed!
I find it hard to justify the price difference from app to game as I even prefer the app. However, this is still a very good game, if you prefer to play things on xbox 360 than on your tablet then remember this is cheaper than many of the newer xbox games. Also if you don't have a smart phone or tablet or means of getting the app, this game is great!
Hence 3 starts as the game is really good it's just its available as an app too (for much less).
