Excerpt: Transforming a 2D game into 3D can be a terrifying prospect for both the developers and the fans. The former may worry of how the public and the press will receive their game while the latter may have concerns about their “favourite” title still retaining its classic gameplay that was there in all its glory in two dimensions. Being keen fans of the old Worms games, we admittedly had our concerns about a 3D version worming its way towards us.
Excerpt: Worms 3D is a strategy game in which cute little worms try to blow the bejesus out of each other with a dizzying array of weapons and attacks. The first question that has probably popped into your mind is probably something along the lines of “just how the heck does a worm hold an Uzi anyway?”. Well you can put your mind at ease because these worms are endowed with disembodied hands that grip bazookas and toss grenades with ease.
Excerpt: Worms , since the series' debut in 1995 on the PC, has spread across damned near anything you can play games on, from the SNES to mobile phones. I think I saw it playing on a toaster oven once. While it's been taking over the world, Worms has also always offered some of the most entertaining player-vs.-player gameplay in the history of the medium. It's a bold statement, but I'm willing to stand by it. The basic idea is simple.

Excerpt: While the majority of turn-based strategy games on the market arguably don't have a true "mainstream" appeal, one franchise in particular will ring a bell for almost any PC or console gamer: Worms. From the studios of UK-based developer Team 17, it's best known for its cutesy presentation, plethora of weapons and utilities at your disposal and with true tactical strategy at heart.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It had to be done. The move to 3D was simply a matter of time, but like many classic franchises, the transition has been less than perfect. Certain facets of the title have escaped relatively unscathed, but it is the gameplay, the very reason that Worms has become what it is, that suffered the most. And that, few will be able to turn a blind eye to.
Summary: Worms, la saga creada por Team 17 a principios de los noventa, da el salto a las 3D después de múltiples versiones en casi todas las plataformas imaginables programadas en las tradicionales dos dimensiones.
Cons: Ninguna novedad sustanciosa salvo el aumento de una dimensión.
