Worms are back...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Worms 3D (Xbox) (Video Game)
If you've ever liked any of the previous worms games, you'll probably like this. The worms look as funny and silly as ever as they fire enourmous weapons at each other across now-3D landscapes. Most of the weapons from previous games are here, such as the banana bomb, sheep dynamite, mine etc.
The game is similar in style to previous versions of worms, with strange landscapes, huge objects and plenty of highly destructive weapons. The game is great for multiplayer between people of all ages, and for those of you that want to play with lots of friends without having to buy new controllers, the fact that worms is turn-based means that you play multiplayer with plenty of others by simply passing the controller around.
The main disadvantages are that all the previous tunnelling weapons, such as the blow-torch, have been removed because you can't see underground. There is also no custom level design (there is a random generator but that's not as fun) and many of the weapons - particularly the grenades - aren't as easy to use as they used to be.
As if to try and make up for this though, there are a few new tools of destruction. Worms can now fly around on jetpacks and throw sticky bombs at worms behind walls. Gas canisters and blowpipes can be used to poison worms and weaken them over time, allowing you to hide until they succumb to the poison.
Overall, great for laughs and a great way to unwind with friends. It may be disappointing in few aspects, but it's still very fun to play - get ready for exploding sheep once again.
