    The force is strong with this one.

    It’s a well made game taken by itself, but it’s far too similar to the five other games to recommend.

    Though it sticks very close to the established formula, Angry Birds Star Wars II offers just enough tweaks and additions to warrant another trip to that galaxy far, far away.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II covers all its bases and hits an iOS home run.

    If you absolutely hate the IP, the concept, and the sound of them yelling as they fly through the air, this won't do much to change your mind, even if the Star Wars factor will help ease in Jedi junkies a bit. But if you don't mind spending a few minutes a day just having some silly fun, Angry Birds Star Wars II delivers once again.

    Like the prequel trilogy itself, Angry Birds Star Wars II just isn't as interesting as what came before it, and seems to have forgotten much of what made the series popular in the first place.

    Even without much in terms of difficulty, Angry Birds Star Wars II is still moderately fun, but more in that “wow, I didn’t expect that shot to level the entire playing field” kind of way than the “how on Earth am I going to get all of those pigs with just three birds?” formula we’ve seen in past iterations.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II doesn’t have a new concept. It does have enough new elements and an entire cast of characters to keep it interesting though. Even for those who don’t like Jar Jar.

    Won’t blow you away with new additions or characters, and you’ll have a lingering feeling that you’ve played it all before. That doesn’t mean it isn’t fun, though.

    The throwaway fun of the first game is sadly lost due to the prevalence of microtransactions. [Issue#142, p.117]

    Angry Birds Star Wars II is more of Angry Birds Star Wars, which, in turn, is more of Angry Birds cross-bred with Angry Birds Space. If that sounds appealing to you, then pick up Angry Birds Star Wars II with all speed.

    Like its predecessor, it does an excellent job of staying faithful to the Star Wars universe, right down to the sound effects. Even the way the much-maligned Jar Jar Binks feels like a wry nod to fellow fans.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II’s increased emphasis on power-ups and toy sales don’t ruin the appeal or fun of the more than 100 levels included at launch, even if it does feel a little gross.

    Once again Rovio manages to tweak the original formula of Angry Birds in order to assure a lot of fun to its fans. We are aware that Phantom Menace is not A New Hope, but Angry Birds Star Wars II can make enjoyable the use of Jar Jar Binks, and that's a win.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II has a glossy and charismatic exterior, but compared to past entries, its appeal feels largely skin deep.

    An unfortunate turn to the microtransaction Dark Side causes some unnecessary problems with balancing but gaming’s odd couple remains a surprisingly successful pairing.

    Even with Telepods and needing to pay to unlock content, Angry Birds Star Wars 2 is another top-notch game from Rovio.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II is a fun, immediate take to the Rovio series, with a good number of levels and characters, but the original concept is getting old and this episode does nothing about it.

    Everybody knows that the prequel episodes of Star Wars are diarrhea, but Rovio's vision isn't bird poop. The game let's you play as the imperial pigs or the birds of the old republic and the level design is puzzle-based. Bird Wars works like a charm! [Nov 2013]

    It's more of the same. For some, that's going to be enough. But if you're looking for innovation in Angry Birds Star Wars II, you're going to be a little disappointed.

    If you're still even vaguely interested in Angry Birds games, you need Angry Birds Star Wars II. Hell, even if you haven't played an Angry Birds game in a while, it's still worth checking out, as firing off evil Boba Fett pigs at unsuspecting birds is just as much fun as you'd expect.

    If you enjoyed the first episode, this one will give you just exactly what you wanted. More and better Angry Birds Star Wars.

It is more cooler than Angry Birds Star Wars. I like that you can play as the birds or the pigs, the telepod technology is awesome, specially if you play as pig in a bird level or the opposite. Those are my thoughts about the game, everyone is free to say something different, I like when there are different thoughts. Full Review »
