Quick Review: Angry Birds for WP7

Just in case you haven't heard yet, Angry Birds for WP7 was finally released a couple days ago!!  This a great news for many people who have time to kill.  We were promised it many times and many months ago and Rovio finally has delivered.  

Obviously almost everyone knows what the game is, so I'm not going to review it in full, I just wanted to point out a few things that I noticed while using it.

First off, the game is not free like on Android, but being an Xbox live title that is a given.  It will cost you 2.99 which is on the cheap side and wouldn't normally bother me, but what does bother me is it's the same as the free version on Android, actually it has less levels and all the ones it does have are the same, no variations.  But what really bothers me is the low FPS i get and random jerkiness while playing.

WP7 has been known for it's awesome FPS and graphics, but this game is less smooth that the android version.  There is no reason for this specially since Rovio kept delaying the release.  Of course I am sure they will release updates to fix any issues and update the levels, but for how long we had to wait you would expect them to get it right.

But all in all, it's still very fun, and will promise hrs of fun!  It is stable and doesn't crash, but you will have to get used to the less than stellar performance if coming from android or iPhone.

Angry birds is also available to play (for free) on a computer using Google's Chrome browser, so needing to pay for it on WP7 is pants! Best thing is to have an HD2 running WP7 but then swap to Android for your free Angry birds fix!
