Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

For the uninitiated, Worms is a combination of action, puzzle game and turn-based strategy, whereby each side tries to wipe out the other with myriad weapons in nearly limitless combinations. Players can move their worms (and sometimes just a single worm) over hills, into mountainsides, across treacherous landscapes--pretty much anywhere but into the water. Weather effects also play a major role in the Worms universe. The wind, for example, will affect the direction of most projectiles, though not all of them.

By weapons, we don't mean the usual knives and guns. Worms has more weapons than most other games, and plenty of them are deviously creative. In addition to the expected shotguns, bazookas and bow and arrow combinations, players will find things like Scales of Justice, an Exploding Sheep Launcher, a Stinking Skunk and the "End It All" weapon that's aptly named Armageddon.

Each weapon has a specific use, and many different weapons can get the player through the same situation, leading to a lot of trial-and-error and even a lot of replayability. The maps are quite creative as well. In addition to the expected mountainous terrains, there are many other forms to play through, including fighting onto a ship as the water level rises. To keep everything interesting and new, a new feature called the Wormpot allows players to access well over 1,000 different game styles. It works either like a slot machine, with a random dynamic picked, or players can select their own style. Features include altering weapon damage, making sticky or slippery surfaces, and even a blood mode. Each dynamic is mixed and matched, adding even more replayability.

Online play for up to 18 people is also included, although it's recommended for no more than six at a time because of the nature of turn-based strategy. For those that prefer to go it solo, there are 45 new single-player missions, 16 new time attack missions and even a deathmatch mode that can be played both single and multiplayer. Developer Team 17 has really tried to make Worms World Party as accessible as possible. --Kilar Tennison

Manufacturer's Description

You are invited to the ultimate gaming experience. And if you can't make it, we'll bring the party to you! Those loveable Worms are back again, annihilating each other with zany weapons on wacky landscapes.

Worms World Party is the pinnacle of evolution for strategy gaming enthusiasts.

With "Worms" already having a reputation for being a party animal, there is just no reason not to come.

  • Show your invite to the doorman to gain access to fantastic new game play modes including "WORMPOT" which allows access to over 1000 different game styles. All modes are available offline, online or a mixture of both!

  • Mingle with over 20 multiplayer missions: players can now team up with a buddy to tackle co-operative missions where working together is the only way to win. Alternatively, check out the competitive missions and fight in specially prepared scenarios which are unlike any match you've ever played before.
  • Single player and multiplayer: 2-6 players either around one PC or online.
  • Do battle on-line: so if you can't make it to the party you can always join the fun via the Worms Network. There is just no need to be on your own tonight.
  • It's a veritable feast with nearly 60 weapons ranging from the relatively calorie-free Bazooka to the full fat Concrete Donkey. Oh man!
  • Our DJ informs us his record box is just bursting with over 40 single player missions and there are dozens of custom landscapes, which can be requested or played at any time.
  • If you're new to the party scene, don't worry. Our friendly training section will soon have you dancing with the rest of us. So ladies and gentlemen, lets gather round and toast to a "Worms World Party". Cheers!

    4.0 out of 5 stars WWP 30 May 2002
    By Tristan
    An excellent 2-D PC game that will keep you entertained and on your computer for hours. With your team of 1-8 worms, on your terrain which you CAN make yourself, use wacky weapons such as Super Sheep, Homing Pigeons, Banana Bombs, etc. And more normal weapons such as Homing Missiles, Bazookas, Uzi, Cluster Bombs, Grenades, Dynamite or any of the 70+ weapons to kill your enemies, to show their different grave stones. Each Worm can have up to around 250 Life Points.
    While in play, crates will fall in which you can collect that contain the more rarer weapons such as the Concreate Donkey, Nuclear Strike and Super Banana Bomb. Along with Aid Crates and Tool Kits which contain stuff like Invisability, Low Gravity and Fast Walk. Handy.
    You can also have the ability to play online against other people from all over the world, which is the main objective of the whole game. You choose what flag and accent you want your worms to have so that people know where you are from. Depending on what flag you have, depends on what launguage the text will appear in the host rooms. There is also a single player menu in which you can try out missions and earn better weapons. Like the ability to change Super Sheep to Aqua Sheep and Banana Bomb into Super Banana Bomb. The best game out of the Worms series out so far since you can never really complete it, the Ninja Rope is extremly handy, if you get good at it, you can join "clans" online and enter championships online against other masters.
    Get this if you like a good stratagy game.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Worms World Party or Privy??? 18 Feb 2004
    I have played a great number of the magnificent Worms games and i have to say this one is really good. But, although it is good you could just save money by buying a less recent worms and getting the same amount of fun out of it! simple. olivia x x x
