Indie Review: Angry Birds Seasons
Angry Birds Seasons has finally made its way to PC, bundled into a special edition that contains practically all of the holiday and festive level packs. If you're a fan, then this is exactly what you need.
- Worth The Time?Yes, there are tons of levels to keep you entertained
- Things LovedIt's Angry Birds, there are over 200 levels to play through, it's as charming as ever, the visuals are colourful and attractive, the holiday themes
- Things HatedSome chapters don't allow you to pick which level you want to play - you are only able to unlock the next by completing the latest, things can get tough rather quickly instead of gradually becoming more difficult and this makes the previous flaw mentioned more irritating at times
- RecommendationIf you're an Angry Birds fan and want more, then this would be the ideal pack to get. It's great value for money, and will keep you entertained for hours. Don't expect anything dramatically new though.

Angry Birds Seasons for the PC is a special edition that comes packed with practically all of the holiday and festive-themed expansion packs released from 2011 to 2012, which is pretty awesome.

Alternatively, it’s the best thing you could possibly give to kids if you need to keep them busy. I mean, it’s Angry Birds, what’s not to love? Well, probably the fact that there’s nothing really new, but it’s not like I was expecting anything in that regard. However, the only two things I didn’t like about this edition went hand-in-hand. Firstly, certain chapters don’t allow you to pick the level that you feel like playing through from the start. In order to unlock the next level, you have to complete the latest available one. It raises an eyebrow as to why this was done, especially since other episodes allow you to choose any level you wish. It’s so that if you find yourself stuck on one level, you can just move on and come back later. Secondly, and this makes the first issue more irritating, things can get tough pretty quickly rather than gradually increasing in difficulty, so if you’re on a challenging level you’ll have to sit tight and keep going until you finish it if you want to move on. Or just try your luck with a different episode.
Otherwise, the game is as charming and addictive as ever, and the holiday and festive themes are really cool. Visually, they’re colourful, vibrant and attractive, and I don’t think any fan of the game is likely to get bored here. It’s a great bundle, especially if you need time to kill in moments of desperation or painful boredom. The problem for me though is that there’s literally nothing else I can tell you about the game. It’s Angry Birds. If you liked it the first time, well, there are tons of new levels for you to challenge yourself with to get those triple gold star ratings and complete the bonuses. Get to it!
I’ll say it again. It’s Angry Birds, and really, what’s not to love about Angry Birds? It’s very addictive and packs over 200 levels to play through, making it great value for money. If you’re a fan looking for more, then Angry Birds Seasons is the ideal package, as it will definitely keep you entertained for hours.
