Review: Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs – A Short But Competent Adaptation to PSVR

Two pigs with one bird.

Angry Birds was a massive hit when it launched on mobile devices several years ago, and since then it has spawned many different spinoff titles, such as Star Wars, Transformers, Rio, etc. The latest of which, Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, is a virtual reality experience available on PlayStation VR.

The game plays exactly as you’d expect, using the usual Angry Birds formula of launching birds from a catapult to topple precarious structures made of ice, wood, and stone in order to kill those pesky pigs. There are some slight alterations in the form of a 3D world; structures can now be attacked from all angles, giving you a much wider variety of places to target than in the 2D titles. Also, you get to hold a slingshot to fire the birds from instead of using a catapult.
