    You loved Angry Birds? You'll love Angry Birds Rio! Same gameplay, same principle, with new birds, new levels, boss fights... it's as addictive and fun to play as ever, and so cheap that there's no real reason not to get it.

    A textbook example of how to seamlessly blend a game with a movie, and with additional levels on the way, it's a must play for longtime fans as well as newcomers.

    A smart, snappy new chapter for the series. The new goals – freeing birds and shattering monkeys – offer a nice reprieve from the bird-pig narrative, and the forgiving learning curve makes this a much better play than the punishing Angry Birds Seasons.

    If you absolutely hated the original Angry Birds, AB: Rio isn't really going to sway you into becoming a fan; but if you at least had *some* fun with the original, you should most definitely come back for more, especially at the .99 price point.

    Performance wise the game flows well generally, though I found there is a slight lag issue in a couple of the levels which I hope Rovio can fix soon. But overall, Angry Birds Rio is definitely worth the dollar price tag. You can finish it in probably a weekend or so given the current 60 levels.

    What Angry Birds Rio lacks in new ideas and freshness, it makes up in quality gameplay and good value.
