Excerpt: We all know that hundreds of games are released every year. A lot of gamers are also starting to realise that multi million pound budgets with great cinematic experiences may not mean that a game will be successful. Over the years a lot of attention has been put on driving the latest tech forward to make a stunning looking game. Unfortunately, a lot of these developers lose sight of the key element of videogaming and that is the gameplay and overall experience.
Conclusion: It's rare that a videogame can remain just as relevant today as it did at the turn of the decade, but precisely because of the stylised graphics, simplistic physics and endless customisation options, Worms remains evergreen to this day. With a relatively low price, it's a nostalgic celebration you really shouldn't pass up.
Excerpt: I have to admit, even though the series has been around since 1995. This is my second time playing a Worms game. And with such a long running series I shouldn't have been surprised with how much fun the tried and true gameplay is 15 years later. However, the cartoon graphics tricked me into not taking the game very seriously. As it turns out, there's a lot of strategy involved when killing worms.
Conclusion: Again, for all but the most obsessed longtime fans, there isn’t enough new here to warrant a fresh purchase. However, anyone looking for the best possible Worms experience will find it here, and lapsed fans who haven’t played since the late 㣾s just might rekindle their interest in the franchise.
Excerpt: Although the worms continue to pop up on damn near every platform available, it seems like it’s been an eternity since the series graced the one platform it truly belongs on: the PC. Worms Reloaded is in fact the first PC entry in the franchise since 2004’s Worms 4: Mayhem , and the first 2D PC Worms title since World Party , nearly a decade ago.
Summary: Worms has taken its wholly unique brand of addictive gameplay, hilarious humor and wild weaponry across almost every console possible, and it will be returning to the format that made it most successful: the PC.
Summary: In the end, Worms Reloaded is a worthy addition to the Worms franchise. While the AI may be inconsistent, making insanely difficult shots one minute and committing suicide the next, and the accents can get a little repetitive, the game still contains the core gameplay that has made this series a fan favorite for 15 years.
