Those wacky worms are once again making a welcome appearance on the x-box . I really enjoyed playing this game and as ever with worms the action is pretty much non stop with some of the action very firmly tongue in cheek.
Basically this is a fighting game featuring some rather cute looking worms who have a very definite dark side and overall there is a cartoon feel to the game with the way the graphics look and feel. In story mode you get to complete a number of different missions which do provide a decent amount of variety to the game. In fact at times in story mode the game plays more like a combat come strategy game as not all of the missions involve blowing up rival worms and in some the objective might be to blow other things up or to escape from a building.
For me the only real drawback to this game is the rather poor aiming system which s quite frustrating at times.
Visually the game is excellent with a very satisfactory audio input. The humour is very well done in the game especially when sneaking up on an enemy to leave a stick of dynamite in their vicinity.
In terms of difficulty levels the first few missions are really easy however you do notice the step up in difficulty levels as the game progresses and in some missions which have a time limit the challenge is pretty good. The replay value is ok bt it does become a bit repetitive after a while.
Overall this game is well worth looking into, not a classic but a solid four stars from me.
How satisfying it is to unleash a weapon of your own creation from the downright vicious to the comical on your opponents? So what's to stop players from creating something all-powerful? Well, that's the clever bit: each weapon element costs points. If you choose a feature like "Homing", then there are less points to spend on damage. Simple! Grenades, projectiles, air strikes, and guns are all in there and there are plenty of comedy components for you engineer weapons with too, including monkeys, buckets of sick, hamsters, and a ton weight for that classic drop-n-splat tactic! Once devised, just name and save your weapon and select it as the special weapon for your team to use in the game. Why not save it to your memory card and "demonstrate" it on a friend? Of course, you don't have to do all the work. The evil geniuses have already packed Worms 4: Mayhem full of classic weapons along with a load of new and inventive ways to eliminate your enemy annelids.
