Excerpt: There are a lot of Worms games out there, and some are more enjoyable than others. Packaging together the titles in this collection— Worms, Worms 2: Armageddon, and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem— seems a somewhat questionable move on the developer’s part, as each of these games more-or-less follow the same...
Excerpt: Every month, gamers get a ton of great new titles to play that are packed with intense graphics, insane gameplay and that fully take advantage of today's technological advances. Does this mean there is still room for old-school favorites that may not have all the bells and whistles that we have come...
Excerpt: Every gamer knows about Worms, but it is a decade since anybody cared about them. Worms struggled more than most to make the transition to 3D; its skilled manoeuvres and careful strategy lost in the third dimension.
Summary: While Worms as a series hasn’t truly changed, these games still retain the strategic elements and unmistakable sense of fun that have made them so popular all this time. This is practically a “Best of Worms” collection in itself, and will certainly be of interest to anyone old or new to the series.
Excerpt: The latest entry featuring our favourite crawling, warring invertebrates, will be familiar to anyone who has spent time chucking Holy Hand grenades at friends since the 90s. Developer Team 17′s Worms Revolution rejuvenates the potentially stale formula by fine-tuning its strategic combat, adding...
Excerpt: Worms have a pretty crappy existence. Chased by moles, harried by birds, torn by children, they are nature's whipping boys despite allegedly being able to live on once split in two. Although they have fared better in the world of videogames, a better, less violent life has always eluded them.
Summary: The Worms franchise is destined to live on in infamy as one of the greatest 2D games of all time. Ultimate Mayhem is likely not going to hold that same glory, but remains a fun side project nonetheless.
Summary: Ever since its release in 1995, strategy title, Worms has become one of the most loved franchises in console history. So much so, that the game’s developer, Team 17 ported a number of the titles onto the Xbox Live Arcade.
Pros: Great assortment of Worms titles, Hours of gameplay, Well priced
Conclusion: le savent, la prise en main un peu particulière des armes amènent parfois aux suicides les plus explosifs. Et cette compilation ne change pas l'habitude, avec une maniabilité console bien pensée mais parfois surprenante.
Pros: Retrouver toutes les armes secrètes, c'est bon !, Les animations de fond distrayantes, Tout le plaisir de jouer à Worms
Cons: Rien de bien neuf sur la planète Worms, Le menu de lancement pas très engageant, Un prix pas vraiment en adéquation
Summary: Bij de naam Worms beginnen mijn mondhoeken zich al spontaan richting het noorden te bewegen. De gestoorde beesten hebben mij maanden zoet gehouden op de PlayStation 1, waarop dagelijks fanatiek tegen vrienden speelde.
Pros: Multiplayer is oneindig leuk, Beeeeeehh…BOOM!, Semi 3D omgevingen, Worms 2: Armageddon
Cons: Belachelijk goede AI, DLC is de moeite niet echt waard
