    Rovio has built a certain polish around the Angry Birds brand, and this new entry to the franchise certainly won't disappoint loyal fans.

    Angry Birds Go! is a first rate kart racer which delivers the goods.

    The well-known birds also know how to drive karts. Lots of fun and beautiful graphics –even though with a free-to-play based model– are the companions of a solid playable experience that keeps expanding its supremacy.

    It never makes you feel like you have to spend money, it gives you plenty of things to do and, while there’s a point where it would seem that you can’t play any more unless you spend some cash, all you have to do is wait a little while and you’ll be able to play more without any problems.

    A fantastic new Mario Kart twist for the classic Rovio franchise: Angry Birds. Exciting and very playable, but the absence of multiplayer modes harm the fun factor.

    Angry Birds Go! is great fun now, with plenty of potential for evolution in 2014 and beyond. A few tweaks to the in-app purchases aside, it'll be raising eyebrows for positive, not negative reasons.

    Either it be in graphics, controls, or charm; Angry Birds Go delivers a polished, fun experience.

    Angry Birds Go! is colorful, simple and immediate, but also very repetitive.

    We like Rovio's game, but would've gladly paid for a more full-featured product.

    It’s not as varied or exciting as a Mario Kart title, but it’ll keep you busy and entertained — especially once you mute those sound effects.

    Fast, funny and well made. But is free-to-play really the future? [Issue#242]

    Angry Birds Go! has an immediate gameplay and it can be fun, but it has a problem with its freemium model. You can play the game without paying a dollar, but it will feel someway limited and repetitive.

    Angry Birds Go! is a racing game designed to broaden the audience, which takes everything lightly without ever really convincing any player.

    Angry Birds Go is worth trying out for free, but the enjoyment is a short sprint, rather than a marathon.

    Angry Birds Go! is a good game. It’s just not the great game it could have been.

    Angry Birds Go! is a racing game dedicated for youngest players, since it does not offer challenge worthy or somehow exciting.

    Ultimately it feels too much like a cheap cash-in to be worthy of your attention. [Issue#143, p.116]

    It’s the kind of game that I would have liked to sit down and play at length, but its freemium design make it only playable in short bursts. Otherwise, it’s a repetitive, tedious example of why people hate on microtransactions.

    A hollow experience that could be so much better, Angry Birds Go! never feels fair or fun.

    Great graphics and solid racing that is unfortunately completely overshadowed by horrific microtransactions.

    Angry Birds Go isn't anything more than an attempt to make a quick buck. A shameless product that 'forgets' to be clear about how expensive it really is, and forces players to reach for their credit cards.

    Sickeningly offensive use of not just microtransactions but every underhand trick in the marketing handbook, which is a shame as the underlying game isn’t bad.

    Angry Birds Go! may be the most glaring example to date of a stellar game concept thoroughly corrupted by an awful litany of freemium tactics.

    There is a decent if repetitive kart racer here, but no game could be decent enough to excuse Rovio's tactics of extortion.

    Extremely repetitive and eventually unplayable unless you pull your wallet. It's a disgrace towards the freemium model. I guess the folks who gave this game high marks are either payed to do so or haven't played the game long enough. Full Review »

    The Game is in it´s 1/2 awsome, but later, it is not almost possible to play without upgrades of your car for real money. That is a pitty, because 25 USD wasn´t enough for constant playing. I had problems, later began game to jam. Bad optimalization. In spite of this problems, I recommend it for playing for at least first half of the game. Full Review »

    This game is really boring and repetitive. It's racing, racing, racing, racing, and racing all over again!! The only thing that make this game deservers a 3 (which is too high) is because of the music and graphics. Full Review »
