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.

Wat een pret, wat een plezier. Worms: Armageddon is hier!

Dieses Spiel kostet mich noch Beziehung und Job. Beziehung, weil ich während unzähliger Multiplayer-Fights immer mehr mit meiner Sniper-Freundin in die Haare kriege, und meinen Job, weil ich sämtliche freie Zeit damit verbringe, explodierende Schafe durch die Gegend zu jagen. Ein fesselnderes Multi-Player-Spiel gibt es wohl nicht. Nicht so gut ist es vielleicht für Zocker die es gerne hektisch mögen - in der Ruhe liegt der Wurm! Das heisst ja nicht, dass es langweilig ist. Und selbst als Solo-Spieler hat man mehr als genug damit zu tun, gegen die verteufelt raffinierten CPU-Würmer anzukämpfen.

Avec autant de niveaux et un mode Multijoueur convivial, vous ne pourrez que vous amuser.

Voll korrekt, Hasbro, bringt ihr uns ultrakrasses Spiel in Laden. Was schon alleine Spaß macht, ist mit ein paar Freunden der absolute Wahnsinn. Selten zuvor hat ein Spiel in einer geselligen Runde mit ein paar Freunden mehr Spaß gemacht, und durch den Zufallsleveleditor seht ihn eigentlich keinen Level doppelt. Wenn das mal nicht Langzeitspaß verspricht! Allen Zockern, die nicht nur allein ihre graue Kiste quälen, rate ich daher: Holt euch diesen Titel, ihr werdet es nicht bereuen.
Conversions are always hard games to judge - the game is basically the same as on the PC, however there are enough differences and downsides to seriously affect the score it's going to receive. On that note, if you're considering buying W:A, then you may wish to just go and get the PC version, which is now fairly cheap and comes bundled with other Team17 Software. However, even if you don't have a PC, Worms: Armageddon is definitely worth buying, as its fun and addictive gameplay are almost unmatched by any other game on the console, even if the graphics aren't too flashy.

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.
