@razgriz_101 Next you'll say you SOMEtimes don't play games and instead stream Netflix or HBOGO on your consoles! What will the so-called hardcore think of THAT? For what it's worth, I agree. Most all gaming is fun, no matter if it means 2 minutes or 2 hours of gaming.

@DrKill09 Its a great game to pass time, much better then everything that came after the original. But they should have waited until they fixed the crashing bug. I'm guessing you're a closed minded hardcore xbox fps gamer. So i don't know why you even clicked on this. Just to bash it?

its fun pick up and play, find it hilarious these so called self proclaimed hardcore gamers refuse to pick up the game and bashing it essentially.Sure its simple but its a fun game on a commute and that is why it sells, its simple to pick up and play here and there. Its a fun game who cares.

10 million soccer mom's enjoying Anrgy Birds Space. Sure why not, This is "Artillary" just with birds. A simple concept which Rovio has managed to make a go of.

Hype does miracles right? Just like Justin Bieber, with the right help from the press a few pretty looks you can be famous even being worthless. @Reuwsaat Snake>Angry Birds

at first i thought that this game was pretty decent but then i finish the 2 worlds in the game and click on the 3rd world and they ask me to PAY?!? i payed for the game and they ask me to pay for more if i want to continue and for some reason the 4th world is locked......this is a ripoff,all the birds have the same powers and just look's different.....Rovio are just greedy pigs

And now Rovio is once again going to think they are the coolest thing since sliced bread because millions of people downloaded their $1 (or for some people, free) game about flinging stuff at other stuff to play while they take a deuce or sit in class bored. Fantastic.

I download it because it's hip to download Angry Birds and tweet about it. Doesn't mean I've played it for more than 5 minutes.

It's free... Why wouldn't I download it? Doesn't mean I'm a fan, it means I like free stuff.
