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: 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: Someone once said that “war is hell” and if the long-lived Worms series is any indication, war between invertebrates is the most hellish—or at least the most enduring—of all. Since 1995, these tiny legless adversaries have been waging 2-D, turn-based war on each other, apparently for no good reason.

Summary: The Worms conflict has been raging for so long at this point that nobody can remember why it started or who fired the first shot. It's well documented that hostilities broke out some 15 years ago and that countless annelids have lost and continue to lose their lives, but why do they fight? No borders are being contested, no dictators have been overthrown, and there's no evidence to suggest that oil profits have anything to do with it.
Pros: Improves upon already-excellent Worms gameplay with smart additions, Huge and varied arsenal of weapons, Multiplayer is loads of fun, both locally and online, Great value for money
Cons: Enemy AI is superhuman or stupid, with not enough options in between, No easy way to share custom landscapes online, Voice samples aren't funny for long, and grate after a while
