Best Windows 8 Apps
8 January 2014
This app is totally free on google play and on Facebook, so why is there a charge?

However it should not have taken nearly 6 months. Great game though and now more worth the asking price.
I hope we don't have to wait 6 months for future updates.

Fixed the crash but added no new levels. That took over a month!!! Last update to my review and my rating will remain one star forever!
29 August 2014
Again, this app is only free for Android and Google Play, and not free for Windows? Oh, I hope you give me some Angry Birds stuff that is free for Windows.

Won't open. Paid money for it. It's a rip-off.

i'll admit that I enjoyed this game when it came out. bought it for windows 8. completed it all and waited patiently for the hoth update. all the other devices have the update, why not windows 8 for pc's? paid a premium price for it too. I even saw a commercial for the game to download for windows 8. *shakes head*. I would just like to know why windows 8 for pc's has not received the hoth update yet.?.?

Dear Rovio Entertainment, please release all other versions of Angry Birds on Windows 8 please!

If you have already purchased call the app store and get a refund. It doesn't matter how long ago you purchased it. I got mine.

Rovio claims it's impossible to release the Hoth update on all platforms simultaneously. I understand a couple weeks or so of delay, but iPhone/Android has had it for MONTHS. We pay 5x more than iPhone customers for this game and are treated like 2nd rate customers. I am tired of the prejudice against Windows users

Bought this a couple of months ago and I'm tired at looking at the planet Hoth with the words "Update coming soon".
25 January 2014
Purchased for win Rt had it on other platforms. Doesn't work want money back.

The game is well over priced. Windows 8 users pay a premium yet we do not get the updates. The game some how lost all my progress. The game is not linked with windows mobile even if you are using the same gamer tag. Wait until the price comes down and for the hoth update to come out before buying.

All angry birds are on sale in every other platform . Not here.
2-10-13 another sale in every platform but windows 8... how lame is that???

DO NOT BUY - I have been waiting, writing requests & have received no info on the FREE update that is supposed to be out for several months now.
Awesome game. My kids love it and so do I. Anyone complaining about it not being free like android users expect. This is not android. This games contains no ads, and is awesome in HD! Well worth the $4.99.
And seriously you spend more then that at McDonalds.
I'm truly sick of people and their entitlement attitude and expect everything to be free. Buy this, and may the force be with you!

Hey, Rovio. The least you could do is come out and say that you will no longer be supporting your games on the Win8/RT platform. It's about respect for your user base, unless you simply don't care.
You should feel terrible for everyone who wasted $5 on this garbage and expected the same level of support you give iOS and Android. What a huge rip off.
24 July 2013
This really sucks. Game no longer works after update. Still waiting on a fix. Supposedly one is in the works. WHEN WILL THIS BE FIXED. IT HAS BEEN BROKEN TOO LONG!!!!!
4 May 2013
Never? IOS has had it for months. Come on already

I think the game don't worth 5 dollar 0.99 is faire enough 5 dollar feed 5 person for whole 2 dates in some places in this world and keep whole family wormed in some places in this poor world so please think twice be for make some peoples billionaires while you can save other ppls life
Like everyone else, this is a great installment of Angry Birds. In the Windows world, many people have more than 1 PC. While I can install this game on up to 5 PC's, the game progress (and achievements) aren't roaming (at least not for me). Played a lot on my Win8 Pro tablet then came back to my desktop to see no progress transferred. I have a Surface too, but assume same issue. For an Xbox Live title, I would have expected game state to transfer through the cloud. Otherwise, awesome game!

Rovio finally fixed this app (which would always crash at startup) for Surface RT users after over a month. Their upgrade notes? "We addressed some minor issues in order to improve the user experience."
What kind of sadistic change log is this? MINOR issues? How is the app not launching MINOR? IMPROVE the user experience? I think you meant RESTORE. What a joke. Screw you too Rovio...
This is the last Rovio app I will ever pay for. Sorry I paid for this one.

This is simply unacceptable, Rovio is treating Windows users as second class ones and Microsoft is allowing it. I demand my money back immediately. I really regret buying a Surface tablet, it is an excellent product but all its content sucks, starting with examples as this.
13 January 2013
Every other device has the Hoth levels and we paid $5 for this
9 April 2013
I bought this for Windows 8 the day it came out.... I am getting sick and tired of waiting for an update to the new levels for this while other devices are getting several updates
29 May 2013
I would give this game 5-stars, if it weren't priced so high. And there have been no updates.
3 July 2013
Please fix or back out update. Rovio, get with it. It has been several days.
25 March 2013
Previously I'd rated it 3 Stars, now I'm updating it to 1 Star. I paid $4.99 on this garbage, and for MONTHS, there's no any updates at all! Guess what, I paid $0.99 for the same game on iPad, I've gotten all the updates, but I didn't really play the iPad version cause I love playing this game with a mouse. Rovio is really screwing PC gamers. Not buying any garbage from this company again. This is my first and last game from Rovio on all of my PCs/devices.
I understand they are trying to make these like Arcade games on the 360 but come on! $4.99 for a game that is FREE on my android devices? Not worth the price, Ill take ads over paying $5 for a game I can play for free on my Phone or Tablets.
The game itself is the only Angry Birds worth playing in my opinion and they implemented the Star Wars abilities almost flawlessly. 4 Stars for the game 0 for greedy companies.
