    Sure, it's not a real Angry Birds sequel, but it's more of a good thing for only $0.99.

    Its great presentation and level design and its great replay value make Angry Birds Rio a must for Apple users, both Angry Birds followers and newcomers.

    If you're a fan of the series, absolutely pick this one up. It's just different enough from the others to make it distinct, and it's also a ton of fun.

    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.

    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.

    The Rio version reinforces the privileged status of compulsory purchase by those who may have access to it.

    The presentation is highly polished and little touches like the inclusion of the Rio characters as playable birds or the extra information included in the menus really help advance the core concept of Angry Birds.

    It's just a shame that Rovio couldn't have found a way of bring more skill into the game. It's the only thing stopping it from being awesome.

    Angry Birds Rio is just a quick moneymaker for EA Games. It's the same game but with different levels. I may not be the best marketer in the world, but couldn't this have been an update to the original? It in no way deserves full recognition as an individual game. It doesn't upgrade gameplay nor evolve the graphic. The Christmas album of the Angry Birds merchandise. Any plus sides? Nice graphics and the original wasn't terrible either. Just not worth your $1.
