Summary

Angry birds vr is instantly accessible. The controls are just so tight and more importantly straight forward. One hand has the catapult and the other pulls back in it… Simples. The actual gameplay is so much more fun this time around thanks to the excellent job they do of making you feel like you are in the world. Teleporting around allows next level puzzle solving solutions. I really enjoyed playing the game but as with all things like this, you just don’t get enough content, with so many Angry Bird games on the market, this VR outing is very slim, granted they negate a lot of negativity by adding the pigs in the title but even then half the cast of the birds are missing. In short, fantastic VR experience but very short and limited but still worth playing just because it is so welcoming.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
