Whilst the Angry Birds franchise strives to become perhaps the most ubiquitous Scandinavian thing ever, displacing IKEA and ABBA, it seems like we often forget there's a series of videogames at the heart of it all. The n...

gamescom: Angry Birds Trilogy looks gorgeous on consoles
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

So I like Angry Birds. Yeah, I said it haters. It's a fun physics based puzzle game, and a great time waster when I'm on the go. I can never look at the mobile game the same again though thanks to what I played of Angry Birds Trilogy on consoles.

First of all, this isn't a downloadable title. It's a full retail product for the the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $39.99, and $29.99 for the 3DS. You get Angry Birds classic, Seasons, Rio, plus 19 exclusive levels for a total of around 700 puzzles, clocking in at around 150 plus hours of gameplay. Plus, everything has been reworked from the ground up. There's all new art, and animations that look beautiful in 1080p. It's even 60 frames per second!
