    It's not amazing, but for the price it's worth having on your iPhone.

    For .99 it just keeps on giving. No other game, with the exception of a few, gives updates adding more levels.

    I agree. What makes it "great" (and I am NOT a game player) is that each level is a puzzle and you have to "MacGuyver" the screen to determine how best to use each bird you are given to solve it based on the birds special abilities.

    And that there really isn't ONLY one way to clear the level.

    Now who else will admit to clearing some levels by PURE chance vs pure skill. Count me in. I played a few levels over and over and couldn't "win" it until I got lucky by having something fall JUST right.

    You fling a few birds at a pissed off bird.
    Never really got into it.

    no it's not. it's a boring ass game. deleted it a few days after playing it. same goes for osmos and some of these other overhyped games people buy.

    I get easily agitated at Angry Birds.

    I mean, those pigs laugh at me... jerks.

    I am, however, totally hooked on Plants vs. Zombies.

    And, if I feel too tense, I play Fruit Ninja in Zen mode.

    ;)

    I've never played a single game on my phone. Last thing I need is another internet addiction.

    I've been slowly working my way through the game. I have 3 stars on every level, and I'm on 2-21.:cool:

    Great game for short bursts of playing.....

    I hope they update it for the Retina Display before I finish it:p

    I don't agree with you that Angry Birds is boring. But I agree that just because it's a top seller doesn't MAKE (or prove) it's amazing.

    Just like those that insist that because the iPhone sells millions, that means that there's no PR nightmare at Apple's door and that there's no real antenna issue.

    Played it for 10 minutes. Didn't like it. I have yet to find a game that doesn't bore me.
