Worms 4: Mayhem is returns to the series' roots, and our brave invertebrates are back to knock ten shades of hell out of each other in open arenas.
With players controlling the worms in single player or 4-player team games, everyone's armed with a massive variety of wild weapons, as ingenious as they are incendiary.
And for the first time in any Worms game, you can let your imagination run riot and create your own weapons! Using a genius device, called Weapons Factory, you'll be able to create your own weapon and enjoy the freedom to annihilate your opponents in your own unique way. You want to make Exploding Chickens or Toilet Bombs? You got it.
The worms' armoury of brilliantly conceived classic weapons return and is built on with even more devilish devices. Plus, prepare to cause chaos and humiliate your enemy with a host of new weapons that create new strategies and gameplay possibilities including the Poison Arrow, Sentry Gun, Tail Nail and the Bovine Blitz, which unleashes a bombing raid of cows.
The customisation options don't stop at crafting new weapons. Another first is the ability to customise your worms, choosing their hair, hands, faces, glasses and dying words--all with Worms trademark humour.
The multiplayer mayhem and single-player shenanigans are spread over five themed zones--Jurassic, Camelot, Arabian, Construction and Wild West--and, throughout the enlarged landscapes, the entirely destructible scenery is back with even greater effect.
In single-player modes there's even more beyond the day-to-day business of destroying worms. Through the 25 missions, you're also charged with objectives such as recovering items or smashing scenery. All the single-player maps are available to play in multiplayer mode, along with a further set of 20 multiplayer-specific maps.
With bold levels, an improved 3D camera and animation system, a stunning arsenal delivering comedy kabooms, the loveable, customisable, yet entirely destructible, worms are back in force.

For those of you wondering what the system requirements are, here they are:
Pentium III or Athlon at 1Ghz (although I've had this running on far lower spec computers, ie Celeron 733Mhz)
2.4GB hard-drive space
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 7200 or later / nVidia GeForce 2 MX or later (I use a 32MB AGP 4x GeForce 2 MX400 and it works perfectly)
Multiplayer: 512kbps Broadband connection recommended for game hosting
Note: Laptop users should be careful as their graphics/sound chip may or may not be supported.
But this new worms games its hilarious fun. I've spent hours online since i've unlocked the new weapons and customised my worm with rainbow sunglasses. Some of the new weapons include Fatkins which is a bombing run with a fat guy :)
Graphics are excellent and have gone back to the older worms style. The sounds are humourous as are the new animations the worms do! Very funny.
this game is outstanding at parties, and the charming worms are as always excellent in story and multiplayer modes. the weapons also make the game interesting, but the game fails slightly here; there are not a huge amount of new weapons, and a frustrating "style" selection formula prevents you from using some of them. still though, the sheep, granny, holy hand grenade and bazooka are always there for the nostalgic players, and the inflatable scouser always makes for an interesting game.
and thus we come to, the verdict:
the good: graphics, gameplay, story mode, multiplayer gaming, weapon and team design functions, and overall beauty.
the bad: alas, there is a minor flaw as mentioned above with the style selection, but nothing otherwise.
an excellent, easy, undemanding yet challenging game, great for parties and people of all ages(despite what other reviewers say). a must for followers of the series, and for those looking for some decent gaming fun.
It is hillarious comic violence with some amazing sound banks.
Worms are customiseable, so you can dress them from lots of costumes, hats, hands, glasses and moustaches.
The landscapes that you can play on are either set or customiseable themes.
Unfortunatly this game is no longer supported on line by gamespy so networked multiplayer is no longer available.
You can still play it over a LAN Local Area Network and I play it with my daughter at home over networked computers.
It runs best on XP but I have installed it on VIsta and 7
Installed in a matter of seconds and runs perfectly on my system, although im not used to the complex PC controls XD...delivery was quick and painless with the game coming a day before it was expected.
Overall a great experience which and is highly reccomended to others!
It'd be hard to find a copy of this game today, but if you have some emulators, go and find the game and give it a go. Not just to be retro, but to educate yourself in the evolution of a particular game style.
Which brings us to Worms 4: Mayhem.
Firstly, I must voice my complete and utter disappointment with Worms 3d and Worms Forts: Under Siege. Those games were very poorly balanced and there were a great deal of flaws that made the Worms genre unbearable for a time. But now, Team 17 has gotten a hold of their design issues and eradicated a lot of problems.
First off, the control style is very easy to get used to (Wind, Bazookas etc) and you have an easily understandable tutorial if you're new to the game which means you can start blowing everything up at your will.
The games see's many classic weapons return in their cartoony design style, so admittedly it's hard to take the game seriously, but it's more than fun.
New weapons include the strange "Inflatable Scouser" whereby you release a Scouser from your grip and he wanders around until he walks into an enemy, then he proceeds to eat him, then inflates himself, floats into the sky (very high...) and explodes, releasing the worm to fall to his death.
As for the story of the game itself, your bespoke team is the class of "The Professor" who decides to take your team on a field trip through time which goes awry.Read more ›

worms has always been a fun game, but if you want the best fun from a worms game get a 2d one as the 3d ones are fun but seem to lack class and major enjoyment. Read morePublished on 31 July 2007 by Levi Minett
