Worms 2: Armageddon is basically the same Worms game that you’ve been playing for years, with tons of content thrown into the mix. There’s a lot of variety in every part of this game, and it meets the price tag. It’s the best version of Worms I have ever played, and there’s hours of content for people to enjoy. The multiplayer modes are great and the campaign is lengthy and varied. There’s really nothing unforgivably bad about Armageddon and the conflict is top-notch.

Alles in allem kann man sagen, dass „Worms 2: Armageddon“ ein wirklich gelungenes Spiel ist, das hohen Spielspaß der Spielreihe mit einer Up-to-Date Grafik, spannenden Mehrspielermodi und Individualisierungmöglichkeiten kombiniert!

To wrap up, if you haven’t played a Worms game before then this is definitely the best jumping on point. The game is full of fun for newcomers and includes plenty of content. For those die-hard fans looking to embark on yet another spree of global worm-fare, Worms 2 includes just enough iterations to make it worthwhile, though at the steep asking price, it’s hard to recommend to casual fans who have already played and tired of the series. The new modes and weapons are certainly welcomed and there’s no doubt that this is a good game, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that these are still just the same old ‘exploding cattle’ antics from the PlayStation One heyday. Team 17: you have the resources and you have the platform to experiment with. My advice is to think of some crazy concept and just run with it: put the Worms in go-karts or give the super sheep its own 2D side-scroller, anything.

Your multiplayer options are split between local and online play, and this is by far where the investment of your time will pay the most dividends. I would not recommend this game based solely on the merits of the singleplayer experience. Use the game’s customization options to create a team, give your team and it’s worm soldiers names, accessorize them, and head into the online arena to experience the real fun. There are a variety of gameplay modes that range from one-on-one deathmatches against another player and a free-for-all type mode where up to four teams can go at it. The game is chock-full of inventive weapons and gadgets and most of them are at your disposal during the match. Bazookas, shotguns, sheep grenades, jetpacks, ninja ropes, and a lot more allow for some awesomely creative ways of destroying your opponents.

Worms 2: Armageddon is still a really fun game. If you have some friends or family to play with you, it can be a blast playing locally. The multiplayer is very complex in structure, but still a lot of fun if you mind the lag here and there. There’s just a ton of stuff to do in the game that can keep you busy for a good long time. For fifteen bucks, I would definitely drop the money on it if you’re looking for a good turn-based strategy game.

Worms 2 is never going to replace Heavy Rain, so let’s not even start trying to compare apples and watermelons. But what you do get - a quick, smart, fun challenge that you can sit down and play with your mates while you’re waiting for the pizza to arrive - is definitely not to be sneered at. While the look is indeed basic, don’t let this lull you into a false sense of security; this cuddly number’s just waiting for you to turn your back. Currently retailing at less than thirty bucks via the Playstation store, Worms 2: Armageddon is a little mushroom-shaped cloud of gaming heaven just waiting to explode in your living room.

Worms 2: Armageddon wijkt niet af van de originele Worms games. Het werkt allemaal lekker en het ziet er goed uit, maar het is jammer dat Team 17 niet wat vernieuwing heeft aangebracht. Dat had de game nog beter gemaakt.
