Video Game Review: Angry Birds Trilogy for the Xbox Kinect


Angry Birds Trilogy for the Xbox Kinect - Activision

Angry Birds (Activision) is now available on the Xbox 360, Sony Playstation, and Nintendo 3DS. I saw the Xbox Kinect version at the library and checked it out last week. I’ve only played the iPod version a couple of times, but I like the Xbox version better. The video game has been optimized for high-resolution screens. As a result, Angry Birds looks more impressive on our TV than on my little iPod. My kids love the new version too. The Xbox version of the Angry Birds Trilogy retails for $39.99.

As you can tell by the title, Angry Birds Trilogy features three games: Angry Birds Classic, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio. According to the product literature, there are 19 episodes in each game.

My kids prefer playing Angry Birds with the Xbox controller. I tried the game with Kinect motion controls. It took a little getting use to, but I like using motion controls to sling the birds at the targets. With motion controls, you use one hand to move your bird back and the other hand to launch it. However, I did notice a couple of problems when using the Kinect controls. First, I couldn’t figure out how to zoom out (the Kinect instructions didn’t seem to work). The second problem is that whenever you drop your hands (like after launching the bird), the system will keep telling you the sensor is not able to see your hand.

  2. Enjoy the public open-air concept loo and shower area. One of the key
    reasons for this effect is that these types of music utilize a tempo between 55 and 85 beats per minute.
    I would recommend having a Mimosa out on the patio overlooking the waterway.

  3. This is more important than ever in a world where there are
    dozens of different audio formats. They also apparently believe that their
    customers who like a particular song they hear on the radio, are likely to purchase that song, which could
    add to downloads from i – Tunes. Another radio commercial production tip to chew on is to make sure the audio
    quality is excellent on any spot your produce.
