  • Excerpt: The Worms franchise has been around for donkey’s years, but since the heady days of the 16-bit era, the success of the various titles in the series has been patchy at best. Worms 3D was the last iteration to hit the big consoles, and whilst the concept was a fun one, the game got old incredibly fast, with little to keep you coming back to play it more than a handful of times.

  • Excerpt: The 1990s phenomenon that was Worms brought a breath of fresh air into PC gaming when it demonstrated how the best games are often the simplest. Since then, the Team17 franchise has seen a respectable number of sequels and spin-offs, but the UK developer's latest venture, Worms Forts, is the first to prove significantly different to others in the series.

  • Excerpt: In Under Siege, you have four worms under your command, and as you have in the past, you will spend your time trying to destroy the computer, or up to three friends. The game begins with a tutorial that teaches you the basics, from moving your worm around, to building different structures and firing weapons. Generally, tutorials aren't very entertaining, but the different lessons here take boredom to the next level.

  • Excerpt: The Worms brand must be among the most valuable in the industry. Since the first game ten years ago, the plucky invertebrates have appeared on almost every gaming platform available, from the Amiga and DOS to PS2 and Xbox, becoming one of the most recognisable and loved series to date.

  • Conclusion: Worms Forts: Under Siege is er eentje voor de fans van de serie of voor de snelle tacticus. De thrill en fun die je vroeger kreeg van je moordende roze vriendjes is sinds zijn 3D-variant wat verdwenen. Grafisch en auditief matig maken dat je beter eerst de coole voorgangers checkt voor je je geduld verliest met de jongste.
  • Pros: extra tactische factor dankzij de buildings grappig
  • Cons: in hun 3D variant nog steeds het kleine broertje van de oudere Worms

Worms Forts Under Siege

  • Conclusion: Team 17 heeft een risico genomen door het concept een andere draai te geven. Mensen die de Worms serie al eerder gespeeld hebben zullen bekende elementen tegenkomen, maar de kern van het spel is toch veranderd. Niet alle fans zullen hier dan ook blij mee zijn. Helaas is het eindresultaat niet bevredigend genoeg om lang te kunnen blijven boeien.
  • Pros: Nieuw concept, Vele nieuwe wapens
  • Cons: Slechte graphics
