gamescom: Angry Birds Trilogy looks gorgeous on consoles

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! 

 

Control wise, you simple just pull back on the joystick on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 controller, and then press A to launch your bird. You get so much more precise aim with the joystick over the touch screen that I know I'm always going to be slightly annoyed when playing the mobile version from now on. 

There's also PlayStation Move and Kinect support. With Kinect, you use your left hand to aim, and lifting your right hand will launch the bird. Bringing down your right hand will use the bird's special attack. 

The Angry Birds Trilogy package also includes a ton of extras, from bird biographies, hand drawn sketches from the team from the initial development of the first game, a cutscene viewer so you can rewatch all of the now fully animated cutscenes, and more. 

Honestly, as much as I liked the game I know I wouldn't pay $39.99 for it myself. I'm okay with playing the cheapass mobile versions I already have. I think this is for more of the diehard fans if anything, and the moms and dads out there who don't want to stare at a tiny screen to play.
