Quality graphics, interesting game play, unusual game play, simple controls, true-to-life physics
In front of you is a long-awaited continuation of the battle between the birds and pigs based on the iconic science-fiction saga of the last century, Angry Birds Star Wars II. The action of the game takes place in different parts of the universe, and its main characters have almost completely changed their look and become really reminiscent of pirates and fighters for justice plowing the vastness of space.
Game featuresThe game doesn't say anything about the stolen eggs, but according to the plot of the "Star Wars", the cause of fierce battles between the Sith and the Jedi was not them, so we won't focus on how it all started in Angry Birds three years back. It would be disrespectfully not to mention that the Rovio company has this time surpassed itself, and now let those who thought the Birds were a stale product try not to change their mind. Not only that, in this game you will find really a lot of new birds with new features. The main schtick of the game is that you will now have the opportunity to take revenge on the birds for all their abuse of the pigs.
And though the pigs were wrong stealing eggs from the birds during dozens of previous games, but now they have a chance not only to survive the onslaught of the multi-colored birds, but also to give them a real fight back and even go on the offensive. At first, of course, you will have to stand by the side of the birds and, after playing a few levels, collect the necessary number of stars (stars have eventually become not just a mean of promotion but something more giving new opportunities), and with this you will be able to stand by the side of pigs and start a war against the birds. Yes, we waited for this moment for a long time and now it finally comes.
Truly new charactersThe pigs in the game are not identical, as well. You will find among them Darth Maul brandishing a sword, General Grievous, Darth Vader and other representatives of the Sith. The game now has a really big store where you can buy not only new characters, but also a variety of items helping one way or another in the fight against the enemy.
The prices in the store, of course, are far from democratic, but firstly, it is truly possible to earn money for some goodies in the game, secondly, you initially have a number of free characters holding a variety of types of weapons, and thirdly, you can always invest some real money to buy the in-game currency which can later be used in the embedded store.
ResumeThe graphics in the game are excellent, and when you look at it there is a feeling that the developers finally have started to put more effort into visualization of effects. In general, while the previous part of the evil birds were identical in terms of graphics, here you will notice the improvement. The sound is completely redesigned, as well as the game's interface. Shortly speaking, stop reading and start installing the game - you will not regret it!
