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.
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: If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it. Nothing truer could be said about Team 17’s latest outing into the world of our soft-bodied invertebrate animal friends. Worms: Reloaded returns the player to the action providing something to enjoy for both the old soldiers and new recruits to the game. Worms: Reloaded is a two dimensional turn based strategy game and acts as an extension of the more recent Xbox Live Arcade release of 2009, Worms 2: Armageddon .
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.
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.
Excerpt: The Worms series is well known to gamers, both for its turned based strategy and its irreverent humor. Over the years, however, the series has become a bit stale, not really building off the original game that much. Worms Reloaded has been touted by its designer, Team17, as adding some new features that would distinguish it from the previous titles. So was Team17 able to deliver, or is Worms Reloaded just another in a long series of similar games?
