Shots of what may be one of the year's most eagerly awaited sequels, Angry Birds 2, have appeared on German telly. A Valentine's Day update to the original is coming next month too. Deutsche Welle last week posted a feature piece on Angry Birds - winner of the Reg Hardware Readers' Awards Mobile Game of the Year - developer …
Am I the only one
Who *hasn't* played the original? Too busy playing Duke Nukem I guess...

^^^^ Because, well, it's a bird, isn't it?
Watch out COD
This shaping up to be the biggest franchise In gaming.
I'd be surprised to see a CoD cartoon series coming out :-) Chalk one up for d'em Angry Birds!

You could say the same about any gaming genre or franchise.
Angry Birds fills a niche, and extremely well. Even if you find the game boring, it's difficult to dismiss such a successful and profitable product.
I think it's a shame that Angry Birds has taken quite so much focus away from other equally entertaining mobile games, but it's still early days for the mobile gaming platform so there's no harm in a poster child.

@ Aristotles slow and dimwitted horse, I would also assume that your past times and distractions from the real world events of day to day life are so filled with other things that a little game on a phone is so beneath you that you feel the need to criticise the masses of people that have enjoyed this game...
badgers because there are no angry bird icons...
Probably won't get the sequel
Unless they do something to drastically improve the aiming system or at the very least not have to spam restart because shot 2 of 5 was 1 degree off.
