Excerpt: Why is the WMG reviewing a Gamecube, PS2, and Xbox game from the year of our Lord 2003? Well Worms 3D was on the Family Friendly Gaming review request listing (editor: for over a year now), so the WMG decided to give it a spin. There is an obvious reason why no one else at Family Friendly Gaming picked up this game to review. It is a turn based military strategy game played with worms. Not exactly the equation to be family friendly.
Excerpt: From the moment 3D gaming was conceived, this game has been on the cards at Team17. The only reason it's taken so long is that lack of adequate technology at the time slowed things down somewhat, due to the game's well-known reliance on deformable landscapes. Well, finally, eight years after the original Amiga version, those impetuous invertebrates are back and in full 3D. Hooray! The game itself is pretty much what we had hoped for.
Summary: Worms 3D is a lot of fun and is definitely worth a check into by any and all gamers alike. But beware avid fans of the series, the new 3D approach to the game is a huge twist to the classic 2D games that you are use to. While the 3D engine is fun and looks really good, unfortunately, in the end, it takes a lot away from the classic Worm formula leaving a bad taste in your mouth and basically just makes you want to play the 2D games instead.
Pros: Alot of fun with friends, Classic Worms formula is still intact
Summary: Worms 3D is a fantastic game and it's made an almost perfect transition from 2D to 3D. What was most gratifying was that the game keeps its spirit and playability that made the 2D predecessors so enjoyable. Single player has been vastly improved and multiplayer is by far the most fun I've had with a game playing offline with friends in a long time - the addition of online play would have been nice though.
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.
Conclusion: Crackdown : futur hit ? Telle est la question que l’on est en droit de se poser. De cette preview, nous nous contenterons de dire qu’elle promet une future version finale de qualité. Il est en tous cas rassurant de savoir que les gars de chez Real Time World ne se sont pas contentés de tomber dans les facilités d’un simple GTA-like et ont apparemment su y apporter une touche personnalisée.
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.
Conclusion: Malgré des difficultés de caméra, un éditeur de niveau moyen, et la disparition de quelques armes, Worms 3D possède une réalisation de qualité, et conserve l'humour bien connu de la série. Force est de constater que malgré les défauts du titre, on a bien du mal à en dire du mal tellement il inspire la sympathie.
Pros: Ambiance wormsienne à fond, Réalisation toute mignonne
Cons: Caméras mal foutues, Editeur de niveau moyen, Quelques armes ont disparu, Certaines armes ont perdu de leur puissance, et ne sont plus du tout utilisées!!
