Despite the orgasmic amounts of fun you’ll have, Worms Armageddon isn’t a seismic shift from the first outing of our hermaphrodite heroes, in fact fans of the first game will notice considerable similarities. The turn-based action remains just as lethargic as before, quips and chatter from the slimy straws come in a familiarly constant stream but Worms Armageddon still remains pure, 100% thrilling gameplay. It is nearly indescribable to sum up the satisfaction and sheer ‘just one more go’ appeal of it, so we won’t try. We’ll just say two words again. Buy it.

All the violence is handled in an easy-to-digest cartoon style, making this a great game for almost any age group. Training missions that introduce the various weapon sets and almost unlimited customization options make this more than just a party game. Being able to play on the couch almost makes up for the resolution drop that was necessary to port it from the PC. Armageddon is here - make sure you have an exploding cow handy!

This is possibly the most addictive multi-player game played since the Roman orgies. Even if you own the original Worms check this out because there's bags more game modes, all new graphics and some of the best weapons ever seen in gaming history. Did I mention the Mole Bomb, or the Battle Axe... If you are going to own one multi-player game then Worms Armageddon should be it.

Worms Armageddon is designed so you can play with other people, and the single-player match is really no substitute. If you've got plenty of friends who spend their time lounging around your place, definitely pick this one up for some rewarding gameplay and good laughs. Although the game has its weak points, the solid gameplay and simple control make this game a must-have for anyone who likes to play games with other humans.

Other than those two problems, one personal, the other more universal, the game is essentially the same as on the PC and on the Nintendo 64. It looks a little worse on PS, but it's all there. The recipe is still a good one, and it hasn't changed too much in this third try, so if you simply want more maps to battle on and weapons to use, then dig into this can of Worms Armageddon. For those who didn't like the first two and were hoping to play something wild and different, you're simply out of luck.
