"When it comes to movie-based games, the good ones are rare, so we're proud to announce that Angry Birds Rio is an exception to the rule. Although it features scenery and characters from the upcoming animated film, Rio, developer Rovio retained the series' irresistible play, making the App feel more like an extension of the franchise instead of a cheap cash-in."
" Angry Birds Rio is a textbook example of how to seamlessly blend a game with a movie, and with additional levels on the way, it\'s a must play for longtime fans as well as newcomers."
"Angry Birds Rio initiates a temporary cease fire with the pigs of past chapters and instead draws inspiration from the upcoming animated movie, Rio. Instead of smashing into piggies, the heroes must break open caged tropical birds, eventually freeing the Blu and Jewel, the stars of Rio. In the back half of Angry Birds Rio, the ire of the birds turns on a band of monkeys."
"There's a level of visual polish on Angry Birds Rio that manages to boost what's already a successful game."
"You've heard about Angry Birds. Your mum has heard about Angry Birds."
"I'll be the first to admit that when I first caught wind of Angry Birds Rio I didn't expect much. Video games based on movies are almost always universally terrible, and this seemed like a prime situation for Rovio do to a quick cash-in on Rio, with hype around the movie and Angry Birds in general making the game sell well anyway. Oddly enough, Angry Birds Rio is anything but a quick cash-in."
"It's all really well done, and any fans of Angry Birds will have a fantastic time playing through Angry Birds Rio."
