Overall, if you are looking for an awesome party game, pick this one up. It’s one of the most fun games you’ll see for a while.

The problem is the game is quite shallow and so some may get bored of it quite quickly, and even though the game seems ideal for children, some of the challenges may be far too difficult for them. Though if you're looking for a puzzle game or a simple game you don't have to spend hours at a time playing on, then Worms Blast may be a worthy addition to your collection.

Dabei waren die neuen Ansätze sogar recht vielversprechend: Ein Super Bust-A-Move mit militanten Würmern hätte durchaus makelloses Gameplay mit amüsanten Extrawaffen-Duellen verbinden können. Was Team 17 aber letztendlich abgeliefert hat, ist ein Spiel, das diese beiden Tugenden leider nur ansatzweise erfolgreich miteinander verknüpft. Zwar macht das Ganze zu zweit trotz spielerischer Mankos ungemein Spaß, kann aber mit keinem der beiden Urväter wirklich konkurrieren. Solisten sollten aufgrund der schwammigen und trägen Steuerung sowie des teils völlig übertriebenen Schwierigkeitsgrads und der fast schon lachhaften Gegner-KI sowieso einen großen Bogen um Worms Blast machen. Auch der reduzierte Verkaufspreis ist kein Grund für eine Empfehlung, können Genrefans das wesentlich bessere Super Bust-A-Move mittlerweile doch schon für die Hälfte erstehen. Wer hingegen oft zu zweit spielt und den Taito-Titel schon auswendig kennt, sollte dennoch zugreifen.

Worms Blast est une excellente surprise qui parvient à me réconcilier avec les vers de terre. En changeant la série de cap pour cet épisode un peu à part, Team 17 risque peut-être d'en décevoir quelques-uns mais offre surtout aux amateurs de puzzle game une bonne alternative au vieillissant Bust-A-Move.

There is plenty of quality in this title, as we've come to expect from Team 17, but unfortunately, the mixing of Worms-style blasting with Bust-A-Move-style puzzling winds up providing a muddled, mediocre experience. Hopefully, failed offerings like this one will convince developers that it's best to stick with a franchise's strengths, rather than attempting to shoe-horn a concept into a license purely under the logic that a recognized name will lend more to the game than a well-developed premise.

Worms Blast might appeal to those who are looking to get the most out of their worms games but that’s about it. Puzzle games have a very niche audience so those who just absolutely need another puzzle game just might want to check this out. Be forewarned though, it’s not nearly as addictive as the other games and it fails to have that “just one more game” quality that most of them retain. It’s a snoozefest in nearly every respect.
