It still is boring.
WolfLeBlack  +   931d ago
I have to admit that I agree. Angry Birds to me just isn't all that interesting.

However, despite that clearly a lot of people have plenty of fun with it, so that's good news for them! I'm almost jealous in that regard :D

It was initially seen as a Game where you fling boulders into castles to kill the king.

It was created by somebody who didn't create Angry Birds.

I played like 4 variations of this game 2-4 years before Angry birds even existed.

It is boring but its something to play in quick sessions. Plus if you new to it, I'll make you think.
NewZealander  +   931d ago
omg there are so many angry birds type games on android, and they ALL suck!
kesvalk  +   930d ago
i still see it as boring.

its still boring and just a timewaster, not a real full fledged game( ign score 8.8)
CommonSenseGamer  +   930d ago
Tell me, what game is not a time waster?
TekoIie  +   930d ago
I play games on my phone when I'm waiting for something to happen.

I play games on my PC/Consoles when I WANT to play a game on them for long periods. Games on consoles are usually played in 1-4 hour periods for me. Whereas I play games like Sentinel 3 on my phone when I have nothing to do for say 5-10 mins.

My point being that im not exactly going to play BF3 for 3 hours and call it a "time waster". Im playing because I want to have fun over a period of time. Whereas games on my phone are just to get those 5 mins closer.

Meh. I like Angry Birds. I might not go out of my way to play it, but it's a great way of passing the time on the train or during a boring uni lecture.

Boring Game, so many better games on ios/android
JBSleek  +   930d ago
I like Angry Birds its a good time waster and when it first game out a little addicting actually. It may have lost some of that luster yet wouldn't write it off as boring by any means.

Thats funny because I initially enjoyed it, and then it got super boring.
saimcheeda  +   930d ago
I thought it was fun at first
But then it got extremely frustating, its not fun when you have to replay a level again and again!

There's a game coming out called Death Maze. Funnest and most challenging game I played on Android.
HeavenlySnipes  +   930d ago
Have it on my phone. Never play it
Ripsta7th  +   930d ago
Its only fun to casuals, who havent experienced a AAA game
CommonSenseGamer  +   930d ago
Utter rubbish. You do realise that PSN and Marketplace are full of "casual" games also. Are you suggesting just because someone played Uncharted 3 that they would never play something like PixelJunk Monsters?
givemeshelter  +   930d ago
I find it boring, however millions of people don't. These games made Uber millions
Kran  +   930d ago
"Angry Birds was initially seen as "boring""

And now it's seen as repetitive, like Call of Duty games
Jakens  +   930d ago
different games for different gamers. Using the term gamers very loosely today.
Jakens  +   930d ago
Never have I been so sad to see a game succeed.
kenshiro100  +   930d ago
I have it on my phone and it's pretty boring. Haven't touched it in a while.
