Angry Birds Star Wars HD is an officially licensed Star Wars-themed game that brings together the famous Angry Birds characters with iconic Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, C3PO, and R2D2. In this game, the Angry Birds embark on a second trip into space, following the success of Angry Birds Space. The game retains the physics-based gameplay of its predecessor, but introduces new special abilities like the use of the force and wielding a lightsaber.
Fans of the original movie, "A New Hope," will be delighted with Angry Birds Star Wars HD as it faithfully follows the plot of the film and takes players to iconic locations like Tatooine, Hoth, and the Pig Star (modeled after the Death Star). The Angry Birds are themed around Star Wars heroes like Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Han Solo, while the piggies dress up as stormtroopers and tusken raiders.
The game features breathtaking graphics and includes music from the original Star Wars score, making it the best presented version of the Angry Birds series so far. However, despite the interesting additional gameplay elements, Angry Birds Star Wars HD can feel repetitive and frustrating at times, especially for those who are not already fans of the franchise.
