Sure, you've played Angry Birds. It's the multi-million-selling mobile game with the birds and the pigs. Now though, it's coming to your console, reworked and reinvigorated for notably less on-the-go gameplay. That doesn't mean it's a quick and dirty port though - this version has rebuilt the game from scratch, bringing together the original Angry Birds game, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons into one pert package.

It's been built from the ground up to harness the extra power of home consoles, delivering crisp high resolution graphics in 1080p, 5.1 surround sound and super smooth gameplay with 60 frames per second if you care about that sort of thing. Everything - most notably the game's improved graphics - are new, with a level of fidelity never seen before in the game.

Each stage has been redrawn, with fancy background and character visuals. Parade stages in Angry Birds Rio, for instance, really show off the extra work that's gone into the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. While previous editions of the game featured static backgrounds that hardly conjured the excitement of the carnival, brand-new moving street scenes really add to the party atmosphere
