      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      When I first played on this game at a mates house I was a bit sceptical. I had heard a lot of it, all of which was good, but I didn't actually know even the basic idea of the game. So when he showed it to me I was a bit dissapointed. It seemed all so simple. A few weapons to choose from, a girder here or there, and all you have to do is aim - right? WRONG! You wait till you get your hands on the controlls - it takes so much skill to do you it properly, with style, and effectively, you what not believe it. It is addictive, a game packed full of originality (not from its predessors ie: 'worms 2', but from the hat which the original idea was pulled out of, which was swarming with so many first person shoot 'em ups and football games). The basic idea is to kill the 6 or so worms on the opposing team, without letting them kill you first. One, of the interesting features of the game is that you take it in turns to have your go, in which you have 40 or so seconds to controll one of your worms. This way of doing it (as opposed to simply having everyone doing it at the same time) makes it more neseccary to use STRATEGIES. To PLAN how you are going to go about it instead of siply play in a mad, uncontrolled game of carnage. The weapons are brilliant, imaginative, with over 60 weapons and utilities. You, can use nuclear strikes, concrete donkeys, carpet strikes, as well as the classic grenades, and shotguns. This game seems to be a hit with everyone that goes on it. And taking into account that it is cheap (ie: I bought it in a package with other things for £20 last year), why don't you try it.

        Worms is possibly the strangest and funniest series of games ever made. Your aim is to command a team of worms to blow up an opposing team of worms using some quality weapons. Worms Armageddon is a great improvement on Worms 2. While the graphics look the same there are more landscapes to choose from, and more options to fiddle about with, as well as more voices. As well as new missions there is one vital new thing. MORE WEAPONS! You can never have enough bizaare funny weapons in Worms and there are even more in this version. One of these is the amazing Armageddon which involves huge pieces of meteorite being launched from the sky and attacking your landscape. The end result of this is about 2 or 3 worms at most being left, from 18 to start with! If you don't have friends round that often, there are single player missions which are a great idea. These allow you to practise your skills against a computer that can use the wind to amazing effect. I have started trying to suss out how to do it and I have jyst about got there. it is very difficult to get it right, and you either kill yourself or your weapon goes off the screen! Overall this is the best game in the Worms series. I think it is better than the latest one Worms World Party as well. Definately worth buying

          Worms is a great platform game for the PC, it has neverending fun, because killing your friends worms kinda of puts a little thrill into your lives, and also the funny sayings the worms actualy come out with, make the game worth playing. there are many types of languae types you can chose from including tykes which is my favourite.the game consists of training which allows you to do missions, if you finish all missions with a gold medal then you get this thingy ma jig ( forgot what it was) and it gives all weapons such as Donkey! MB bomb, Sally Army, and French sheep Strike. if you cant be bothered to play the missions you have the Arcade game too play were you get a random map or one you made or chosen to battle on. you can make your own team which is a good feature, and you can choose your weapon settings! if you want to play your mates over the internet you......can always do it as long as you know how to set it up thats the part that i didnt like it was always harder to set up over the internet then any other game. when your worms die in the game you get a grave stone and if you get the patch off the internet which is an upgrade. you can choose alot more grave stones and some very funny ones. There is a new worms game out now worms world party i think its called i ahvent played it but the way this game was made i think it would be an eccelent choice to buy the new one! or this one up too you

            OK Theres nothing that i like to do more on a Sunday afternoon than rip into worms .... and with a game like this who can blame me?!? Not much expansion from the other "Worms" selection but this game is FULLY customisable allowing you to make your very own game with Maps, Number of Worms and even weapons making an all out armeggedon! Weapons - OK a main part of this game are the weapons {of course ! ) and there are many to choose from at the start! each team has a special weapon (my favourite is holy hand grenade ... anyone agree with me??? ) along with all the basic cluster grenades and bazookas this game proves to be all out worm warfare. Althought getting the hang of aiming is an art to be practiced once u get into it you will have hours of fun making worms fly through the air (baseball bat is quite fun for that) or ramming thier heads into the floor with a pneumatic drill!! Maps - There are many maps to choose from and each little extra thing put onto them makes them very different! You also have the capability to create your own map, teams and much more!! If you like to create maps for a game to have a laugh attempting to kill the damn things (like me) then this is the game for you! Multi-Player - Multi Player is just as good as the other games!! If two people dont know what they are doing in this game it is highly funny (as me and Dan found out) especially when your drunk (ok dont tell my mum that she already thinks ive made someone pregnant!!) Missions - As i have never got very far on this part of the game it does prove to be fun trying! Basicly there is a point on the map you must get to but in the way of it are several computer comtrolled worms waiting to smash your poor little worms face in! This part of the game proves to be funny as F***! Video - God lets go here now .... The video sequences are hilariously funny and a must see for everyone! Soem of the expressions of the worms are marvelous and u
            cant help but breaking into laughter when the Camera turns into a missle launcher (ooops no more there). Sound - Oh yes another funny part! The sound effects on this are exellent especially the worms voices! If you dont like smashing worms into the floor then just buy it to hear the voices of them!! its priceless!! Overall - A very funny game worth buying if you have nothing better to do than kill innocent worms with hand grenades and concrete donkeys!

              Disadvantages

              In this game you fight other teams of worms (little charcters who have a number of weapons.) You can either play against the computer, other people over the internet or play multiplayer against friends. You have a team of worms (which you can customise) and it switches between them all every turn you have, you are set on a landscape (of your choice!) and you have to kill all of the other worms team before they kill you and whilst protecting your worms! It is a very fun game which is very addictive and is good to pass the time! The weapons include holy hand grenade which sings halleliulah! and super sheep which baaaaaaaaaas around the landscape until you blow it up. its very much worth buying and better than the other worms games.

                Worms 3 is yet another humoristic 'worms' game. Ofcourse, the explosive old granny is still in, but you'll now have even more twiseted things to blow up your enemy with. Carpet bombs, ming vase, flying super-sheeps, mail. The maps haven't changed much (looking at detail and graphics), although you can make your own in this version. The worms can speak many languages, and there are some really funny ones in it (angry scots). Some of the weapons in this version are very extreme, blowing up nearly the entire map, and probably even killing the one using it. Worms armageddon also has missions to complete and there are training missions (blowing up granny's?), which you can score points with and try to beat your score. The missions are pretty pointless, and you ussualy have to grab some sort of crate before a certain time. The AI in this version is ok. When the computer is thinking a ? appears above they're head. Although sometimes, the computer controlled worms make completly stupid moves. But in the other hand, they can also kill in one shot with great precision. And sometimes, they just skip a round, cause they can't do anything. Worms armageddon is a blast, and you'll have loads of fun killing your friends! (or getting killed by them)

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  This is one of the most fun games ever to be invented, while there are no huge improvements over previous worms games there are so plenty of little additions that really add to the games experience. First of all the game is extremely customisable, lots of changes to nearly everything in the game can be made. There are basically 2 types of options, one for weapons and one for general. Weapons - This lets you change the damage of weapons, number of weapons of each type you start with and any delay before you are allowed to use certain weapons (particularly useful if you don't want someone to have devastating weapons right at the start). Most of the weapons on this screen are very similar to those seen in worms 2, while you will find different weapons in crates or through other means most of the basic armoury remains the same. You can also choose what weapons you can find in crates and how often these can be found, this is great to stop you finding weapons that you already have unlimited uses of and would never use anyway. Super weapons can also be disable or enable (even enabled they are quite rare, but more tactical players may find they unbalance the game a bit). General - This includes things such as how much health each worm receives, whether you can select which worm to use each time, number of worms per team etc. Note: Most of these options will only be enabled in certain modes of play, things such as training or missions have their own setup to ensure they remain challenging. The graphics on the game are much improved over previous versions and while not 3D (something I believe is a good thing, I sometimes find there is far too much emphasis on making games 3D) everything looks good. You can choose between either 640x480, 800x600,1024x768 , obviously the higher the resolution the more screen you can see and the easier it is to judge your shots, however the game is easy enough to play in any resolution. Music
                  is nothing special, but sounds can be extremely funny. While you will get bored of some of the voices, you can change these to one of a variety of included voices or you can download more off the internet or even make your own. Creating your team is one of the most important first steps and having a team you design yourself seems to make playing the game much more enjoyable even if it doesn't really achieve anything. You start by naming the team and each of the 8 worms in it (although in most games you probably won't be using the full 8 names so put your favourite names near the start), choose a voice file (mentioned earlier in sounds), a gravestone (doesn't actually do anything but can look good after you die), a flag (very little impact on the game, hardly important at all in my opinion) and a special weapon (these are normally more powerful than most weapons you start with without being unbalancing, I tend to choose something that's fun to use rather than powerful). Most of these options (other than for the special weapon) will be used in every game mode, so it's worth creating a team you will want to use. The number of single-player game modes has been increased and each is extremely fun, although they can't make up for the lack of a human opponent. You get to choose between quick-play, training, missions or death match. Quick Play - This puts your worms (not actually your team, you will have names such as worm1 which is slightly annoying) against a single computer opponent. This is a quick and easy game mode that can be fun if you don't have much time, but after a few games you will probably want more options as to how you play. Training - If you haven't played the game before you will probably want to start off with basic training, this teaches you basic weapon skills giving you a better understanding of the game. Even if you have played worms a lot before you will probably want to do basic t
                  raining as it needs to be completeled to allow you to do all the missions (as well as to unlock an unimportant, but fun, game option). Other than basic training there are other practice modes which aim to make you master certain weapons, these can be extremely fun and challenging no matter how often you've played the game before, particular fun is super-sheep racing, all of these modes have a hidden option that is unlocked if you get a gold medal in them so it's worth playing. Missions - In missions you have a set objective that must be completed, this can be to collect certain items, protect worms or just kill the opposition. As you progress through the missions they get progressively harder and if you do enough you can often unlock certain hidden options. Death-match - You play against the compouter in normal combat (although with computer-defined rules rather than your own). Each match you win makes the next match progressively harder and it really starts to get challenging after a while. Multiplayer is definetely worms strong point, whether it's against just 1 other person on your own computer or 3 other people over the internet. There is nothing like facing another human opponent and it's extremely satisfying when you manage to get a great attack in. The 2 main play modes in this game are single computer and LAN & Internet play. Single computer - While I said this is a multiplayer mode, it is also a singeplayer mode in a way. If you are playing alone and want to choose exactly who you are going to be facing and have computer players facing each other or working in teams this is a great game mode for that. If you are actually playing with more than one person however this is done by "hot-seat", each player changes seats after each go. While this is very fun it does get annoying to have to keep moving after every go. LAN - Only useful if you are actually on a LAN which I aren't so have no expe
                  rience of this mode. However from what I have heard it is basically the same as normal multipler without the need to switch seat and with each persons team stored on their own computer. Internet - Play against players over the internet, play mode is basically identical to normal multipler without the need to switch seats. When I've tried there have always been people to play against, although I won't say that everyone agrees on every single rule you want to use. In normal or multiplayer matches you have quite a lot of options over the map you use. You can either choose a completely random one, one of the included pre-set ones, or design/download your own. If you choose random then you still get options over what you want it to basically look like, however it will be a little bit different every single time. Problems do however exist in the game. I personally have experienced a problem where the screen flickers quite a bit when playing no matter what options I adjust on my computer. The game is still playable however (although not nice on the eyes). This problem seems to be fairly rare however and usually fixable. Another problem I have known to happen is that all team data can be lost by somehow accidently erasing the team when editing it. I am unsure exactly how I managed to do this and have been unable to duplicate it, but it can occur. However again it is rare and I don't know anyone else who has experienced this problem. One annoyance of mine is that to save game options after making a change you need to first select the option then change the options then actually type the name out again, click save and click ok. While this is an extremely minor thing, I personally would prefer you to automatically have the options name entered after you make changes. Computer AI is strange at times. The computer can be extremely intelligent in aiming, making shots with grenades & bazookas I would never eve
                  r be able to make, however it seems to rarely use the more devastating weapons, even when plentiful. As well as this it sometimes seems to skip goes or shoot a wall for no reason even on high difficulties. Due to these things it is sometimes easy to beat computer players, however if you are finding things too easy there are plenty of options available to make the game more difficulty so it's not a major problem. Alternatively, find a human opponent to play against, it's much more fun anyway :) Overall the few problems that exist are minor and don't detract from what is a fairly simple but extremely fun game. While the ideas may be fairly simple, the huge range of options and possible tactics make this an excellent game.

                    Disadvantages

                    There's something delightfully perverse in seeing innocence behaving in uncharacteristic ways. I mean, look at the success of Monty Python, who perfected this particular form of entertainment into an art form. Who can forget (unless you've never watched it before) that priceless sketch in which Eric Idle starts off reading children's stories which quickly degenerate into tales of S&M? The designers of Worms: Armaggeddon have certainly managed to adopt that spirit into their games. A simple concept, two or more sides blasting each other into oblivion with various weapons. It's turn based, and works more like artillery than infantry combat (though there are exceptions) and things like wind speed and direcion affect the way your projectiles fly. The very earliest DOS games explored this concept with 'Gorilla' in which two gorillas stood on opposite sides of the screen and hurled explosive bananas at each other till one connected. Worms is a game that's 10 generations later and 10 times more fun. The concept remains the same although on certain modes in the game you can move around to find cover. Cute little pink worms with huge eyes and smiles casually fire bazookas, banana bombs, exploding sheep, Molotov cocktails, mad cows and even old women at each other in an attempt to do violence to the opposition. The backgrounds are colourful, the in-game music suitably bizzare and the sheer inventiveness and variety of the weapons makes you wonder what the design team were smoking while they came up with it (I'll have some of it please!). I have this image in my mind that in one of their brainstorming sessions, insane cackles could be heard emanating from the meeting rooms as each programmer strove to outdo their colleagues for sheer lunacy of the weapons. I'd dearly love to see the design notes and weapons that they did remove. As if that wasn't enough, this game gets a hats off from me for variety of game voices that
                    you can choose for your teams. There are around 30 basic phrases for each team, corresponding to the situations they find themselves in. Add to that around 20 different accents and you have quite a collection. Each accent approaches the stock phrases differently. When I discovered the Indian accent by accident and used it on my team, the first phrase that came out made for a real laugh out loud moment. The enemy was in a friendly fire incident (ie. he blasted his own troops by accident) and one of the worms on my team blurted out,'You are having bad eyesight'. He sounded just like all the really bad cariacatures of Indians and was absolutely hilarious. Politically correct people have been warned. The PC version is different to the one released on the Playstation in that one of the weapons underwent a name change. At the time of release, the Pakistani row with India over testing of nuclear weapons was going full tilt and in the PC game, you can get a weapon named Indian Nuclear Test. When the Playstation one was released later, Team 17 probably renamed it for reasons of sensitivity. Despite the looney premise and cute graphics, the best thing about this game in my opinion is the gameplay. It's surprisingly deep and replay value is very high. The computer opponents aren't the brightest bulbs in the room but they are horrifically accurate with their weapons. Thy also tend to stick to the same few weapons even when so many others are available. With sound strategic planning and good tactical execution however, they can be beat even on the highest difficulty level. This game is best played against other human opponents. Being turn based, it allows for round-robin style gameplay, with each player allocated a certain amount of time before they forfeit their moves. You could also team up with other humans to play against the PC but it's the free for alls which I find to be the most fun. Nothing beats seeing balls of flami
                    ng French Sheep tossed out of a meat van in the sky and destroying the landscape and your friend's worms. That's until he does the same to you. Customibility(is there such a word?) is also quite high. You can record your own phrases for use in the game. You can name your teams and each individual member. The cool thing is that the computer keeps a scoreboard for these things and you can track your team's progress from game to game. There's also a single player game in which you have to complete missions. Some of those are insanely tough. One thing that I wish they implemented was a save game feature mid game. If you buy the farm moments before you win a scenario, it's hasta la vista baby, and back to the beginning for you. While that doesn't sound neccessarily like a bad thing, when you've played the same scenario for the nth time, it can devolve into primal smash-the-Friggin'-PC urges. All in all, a good buy and especially now that it's going at reduced prices everyhere!

                      Worms Armageddon is easily the best worms to date. It is a like a chess game where the pawns are worms with heavy artillery. The game takes skill and strategy to complete the training and death match modes. But, the best feature and probably the most popular has to be the multiplayer mode. You can take on your buddies, make up the terrain, configure just about anything you want to make the match suitable for you. Also, what would worms be without the existence of some out-of-this-world weapons, including: the sheep launcher, holy hand grenade and the grandma that explodes. My personal favourite part of Worms Armageddon is that you can add your own voices. There is nothing funnier than watching your buddy's worms spout out his voice when his worm takes an arrow to the head. The game has a great replay value. The missions unlock some secrets like more weapons and useful tools to use in battle. The one bad thing is that sometimes the computer A.I. can be rather difficult. Sometimes they pull off the most unbelievable shots. But, that adds to the challenge of the whole game. Besides the tough computer A.I. there really isn't much else to complain about WORMS ARMAGEDDON. It is a fun and addictive strategy game. This game is a big hit with me and I know a good game when I’ve played one.

                        Disadvantages

                        This game is funny, addictive, comical, annoying, exciting, 'cute', and much, much more. Worm Armageddon is the feather in the cap of a phenomenally successful worms series. It expands and stretches the Worms series to new boundaries, new heights, whilst offering more features, weapons, annoying voices, and most of all hours upon hours of brilliantly exciting game play than any other of the fantastic Worms series. Worms Armageddon can either be a single player, for those ready to take on the wrath and skill of the computer or multiplayer, for those who want to share the hours of fun with their nearest and dearest, or if you just want to blow up your friends (worms). With no-holds-barred action, strategy and sheer outrageous fortune, thus you can play for hours and hours or just a mere ten minutes, either way you can experiences the full delights that are available from ‘Team 17’. Nothing will ever be the same after this, you will look upon worms in a different light, could they really destroy civilisation like that, nothing is impossible!!! The addition of a multiplayer game over the internet, makes it the ideal party game, you’ll always come back for more. A basic idea of the game:- Worms Armageddon is a turn-based strategy game, where you battle across some of the weirdest terrain’s possible from snow to desserts, from Paris to New York, or even generate your own finely crafted levels. Each team will take it in turns to pick off those unfortunate worms, of whom you are budding to destroy, using a range of highly strange and unusual weapons, from Holy-hand grenades to cross-bows, from concrete donkeys to mole bombs, anything will seems possible after these weapons. My personal favourite is the banana bomb, which initially explodes, then showers several more banana’s in every direction, causes so much damage and destruction, (you wouldn’t think a simple banana could do so much damag
                        e but take my word for it, it can and it will!!!!!) The worms will eventually perish after their energy, descend below 0 and then they will proceed to the murky depths of the dark beyond. Basically the last team standing , will come out victorious. Added features:- Along with the range of weird and wacky weapons, and strange and mysterious terrain’s, there are also the wide range of comical voices, e.g. 007, Soul Man, Cockney, etc,etc, who say strange saying such as, “’ave a banana!”, “To the queen, Gawd bless ya”, “Oh, that’s not cricket?!” and “At ease!” Saying that seem so strange but will have the whole room in fits of laughter. My personal preference is the Brummie accent, which is perfect down to the last sound. Also there is the added bonus of the beauty of the little worms squirming around on there bellies, just to plaster an unsuspecting worm into next week. Believe me, every Worms game they produced has all the quality of the previous one plus added feature, (see above), oh, just the hours of fun. It’s one of those games that once you’ve had a taste you will always want more. The additive voices linger in your head and make you laugh all the time, even in the most boring history lessons. Go ahead and pit your tactical knowledge and strategy against that of the computer. Scared?! You don’t know the meaning of the word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus for those who are uncertain of how to install it, there is a step by step guide in the instruction book, which also has a guide to the whole game.

                            ITS BACK! Worms must be the most simplistic yet most addictive game ever to grace the computer market. However it is still one of the most entertaining and most satisfying games I have ever played, but what is there in this third installment of the hugely popular turn based game, that isn't in the others? Well first off, Team 17 have added a whole heap of new weapons, that you can play with including such beauties as atomic bombs, earthquakes, sheep strikes, flame throwers and the lovely holy hand grenade, just to name a few. You also have the option to have a go at at 30 mission based single player games where each time you are put in a situation (usually when you only have a few worms against about 8 of the computer's!) where you have to capture secret weapons, knock out one important worm or just annihilate your opponent etc...etc... Even though the single player option is a bit tricky it's not likely to keep any one entertained for long! The developers have also incorporated a re-designed and much easier way to access internet play, so now you can open a can of whoop-ass on your mates over the net. The old multiplayer deathmatch is of course still in there and now you can play that single-player earning ranks for your performance. Again this is a nice touch but worms was never destined to be a single-player game and unless Team 17 come up with something special it never will! Die-hard worms fans will appreciate the small changes that were missing from Worms 2. This will also appeal to those who have never played (If that's you...sort yourself out!!) Worms or just could never be bothered to buy Worms 1 or 2. If you already own Worms 2, don't bother but if you want a Worms game, this is a good choice because it's more of a "Ultimate Worms 2 Pack" then a full new game. However which way you look at it, its still one of the most addictive and niftiest games around!

                            Worms armmagedon on the Pc is the latest addition in team 17’s highly successful and highly enjoyable worms series which has included worms and worms 2. It has more modes and more levels than ever as well as an all new mode in which you have to earn medals by doing various tasks e.g. getting your worm from one side of the level to the other with a bungee rope. The one downside to worms is that it is still 2d, which in an era of 3d games isn’t really good enough. Still, if you liked any of the previous worms games then you will love this, even though it is more of the same.

                            Ok, they are nothing more then Worms. Little pink smudges on the screen, cute smudges but smudges none-the-less. They make funny little sounds, and they toss bullets and ammo of every variety around with the accuracy of a brain surgeon. You are an army of worms in a battle to the top. With your unique weapons you should easily be able to drown, blow up, punch and burn your opponents to a pulp. (hang on, can you burn to a pulp?) The number of weapons and utilities is amazing, with 60+ of them! Here are some of my favorites - Super sheep, flying Sheep! (says it all really) Shotgun, this is Pure simplicity. Of course, you can't forget the fabled 'Armageddon', it brings down millions of fireballs, doing 150+ damage to everyone, including your own team! (Better make sure you're burrowed underground when this happens!) The single player missions are quite hard, probably because the AI has brilliant accuracy. The training missions are pretty fun and are quite difficult, I think these are a good idea because it gives you a solid foundation to build your skills. But playing with your pals is where this game comes into its own - The ability to pound your friends into the ground, and then taunt them by killing them in some horribly pathetic way, like poking their last worm into the drink. There's nothing quite like hearing the screams of your opponent as they realize that you actually managed to throw that Holy Hand Grenade into the crater that was housing 3 of their worms. You can play over the web, but as I can't even bear to lose to people I know, I won't be going online with this one (I know, i'm a wuss!) Apparently (so i've been told), it's pretty good, you can either log in as a pro a regular or as an amateur, there are monthly tournaments as well as competitions. The sound is probably the weakest part of this game, the voices are funny but can be repetiti
                            ve, the music is laughable and the sound effects are pretty much just explosions. The system requirements are :- Pentium 100 Mhz Windows 95/98 32MB RAM 2X CD-ROM 50 MB Free 1 MB SVGA Card Time to break out the old ladies!
