Worms 4: Mayhem Review

VideoGamer.com
14 December 2005
  • Excerpt: There must have been a point ten years ago when worms around the world decided that they had had enough of being the playthings of choice for sadistic toddlers. No longer content with their lives (being split in half doesn't help relationships), they looked for a purpose to go on; a reason to keep living. That reason, rather surprisingly, came in the form of high-powered, high-explosive weapons.

  • Conclusion: It's not necessarily a bad thing to stick to a proven formula--as Worms does--but there at least has to be some reason to keep playing each new installment of the franchise. Even though it's being offered at a budget price, there just isn't any reason to play Worms 4: Mayhem if you've played either of the last two games in the series. If you've never played a 3D Worms game, this is as good a place as any to start.
  • Pros: Some of the new and returning weapons are fun, like the Concrete Donkey, Mission design in story mode is unique and interesting at times.
  • Cons: Nothing much has changed since the previous two 3D Worms games, Frustrating platforming stages in story mode, Explosions and effects seem weak by Worms' standards, You constantly have to fumble with the camera, Inconsistent AI.

  • Summary: Worms 4: Mayhem is the third Worms game in two years, which is a lot of worms. But more importantly, it's hard to believe there's such a rampant demand for these games, considering they really never change or improve over time. Aside from the requisite transition to 3D, the Worms series hasn't changed much since it first appeared on the PC in 1995. Each new installment may tweak the weapon lineup ever so slightly, but these worms tend to stick to their guns.
  • Pros: Some of the new and returning weapons are fun, like the Concrete Donkey, Mission design in story mode is unique and interesting at times
  • Cons: Nothing much has changed since the previous two 3D Worms games, Frustrating platforming stages in story mode, Explosions and effects seem weak by Worms' standards, You constantly have to fumble with the camera, Inconsistent AI

  • Excerpt: Unless you have been in a cocoon for the last twenty years, you will be aware of the Worms universe to some degree. This franchise has become a part of gaming history and started with the insanely popular and simple 2D wormfest that millions of people devoured in their gaming droves.

  • Excerpt: When Worms 3d was released a couple of years ago many saw that waiting for Team 17 to make their first 3d worms was well worth it, even though many said they preferred the 2d games more. Worms Forts on the other hand was not received as well as its predecessor, having to build forts and destroy your opponents at the same, time took away the quick pick up and play factor of the previous titles.

Test : Worms 4 : Mayhem

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Au commencement, on se tapait dessus avec des gourdins. L'âge nouveau du métal amena les épées, les flèches ainsi que les lances jusqu'à ce que la géniale invention de la poudre à canon vienne révolutionner notre conception de la guerre. Aujourd'hui, on a trouvé encore mieux : les armes atomiques. Vous n'allez pas le croire, il y a encore plus destructeur.
  • Pros: Des vers toujours aussi nazes, Le cell shading ajoute un vent de fraîcheur à la série, La customisation des équipes et des armes
  • Cons: Caméra lourdingue parfois, Des sauts difficilement praticables, Une 3D necessaire mais contestable

  • Excerpt: Думаю, что даже особо незачем представлять серию Worms. То, что выпустив в далеком 1995 году игру Worms, Team 17 обратила взор почти всего мира на это интересную пародию а-ля Scorched Earth, Castles и других игр, которые представляли собой «мочилова» на плоском экране с меняющимся ландшафтом и забавным арсеналом, а чуть позже, выпустив Worms 2, завоевали огромную любовь всех игроков от мала до велика – известный факт.

  • Excerpt: Давным-давно в плоском и почти лишенном красок компьютерном мире появилась аркадно-деструктивные Tanks! На незамысловатых локациях располагался танковый взвод, который, используя весь доступный арсенал (ракетные, кумулятивные, тектонические, ядерные снаряды), сводил свои и чужие счеты с жизнью. Игра вроде и понравилась игрокам, но не хватало какого-то колорита. Вопроса «А где взять?» в те золотые времена разработчики не задавали.
