When Rovio boss Peter Vesterbacka said that Angry Birds was going to follow the same template as the Mario franchise, I didn't realise he meant it quite so literally.
Following a brief trip into outer space, a cartoon series, and a go-kart racer, we now have a cute RPG. I'm hoping for Angry Birds Golf next.
You shouldn't except anything quite like Paper Mario here though. Angry Birds Epic has no towns, civilians, or side quests. And the story isn't a legendary tale of cataclysmic events, amnesic heroes, and a 'chosen one'.
Angry Birds Epic is a fun, streamlined, and surprisingly deep RPG, but a dearth of variety and a wealth of in-app purchases will turn off genre junkies
