When this game was announced, the Internet just about lost its collective head. Okay, so it wasn't as big of a deal as when it was announced that Disney bought the Star Wars licence, but for those who cared about Angry Birds and even the Star Wars fans, it was still a big deal. I mean really, who in their wildest dreams ever imagined a cross-over mash-up of such epic proportions?
Yet it was all a reality. Angry Birds Star Wars was released, paying homage to the original Star Wars trilogy. All the beloved and well-known characters were represented as different kinds of birds, all with their own unique abilities, but not in the typical Angry Birds style, but rather abilities to fit the Star Wars universe, while still feeling Angry Birdsish. I'm talking about light sabers, guns and the force type of moves. You know, stuff you would actually see in a Star Wars movie, just being done by birds with full heads of hair being flung around.
The characters are fun, the cutscenes are actually enjoyable compared to most Angry Birds games, and there is a certain satisfaction felt by taking down the pigs, most likely due to Star Wars being the most traditional and perfect example of good versus evil. The levels themselves are also quite enjoyable, as you get to visit all the main locals of the movies, playing through the story as you already know it, just with the Angry Birds twist.
Overall, as weird and uncertain the notion was to combine Star Wars with Angry Birds, the mash-up was actually executed extremely well, enough to satisfy all Angry Birds fans, bring in new ones due to the Star Wars license, and also and probably most importantly, it managed to due the Star Wars trilogy properly, without upsetting the die-hard fans of the series who usually get pretty upset when their beloved universe is mistreated. Jar Jar Binks, I'm looking at you...
