In the end, Worms is the kind of game that has to be played to be appreciated and once you've tried it, you'll be hooked.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Worms is a little hard to describe, except that it is probably the most fun you'll have in a two-player game. The game looks very similar to Lemmings, except that there are two teams, both trying to eliminate each other with various methods of attacks, like Dragon Punches and guided missiles. Each team of worms also has special abilities such as pneumatic drills, bungee ropes and kamikaze attacks. Some games have great graphics and control, but Worms doesn't need either because the fun factor is a 10+. With multiplayer ability of up to four people, Worms is one of those games that is so unique, it doesn't fit into any category --- except innovative and incredibly addictive. Try this game!

Zugegeben, das Spielprinzip ist echt asbach, die Aufbereitung der Idee ist allerdings derart gelungen, daß man Worms getrost als Highlight einstufen kann. Ich muß allerdings gleich dazusagen, daß sich das Teil nur mit menschlichen Mitspielern wirklich lohnt. Gegen den Computer machen die möglichen Fisematenten einfach nicht so viel Spaß. Kämpfe gegen den Prozessor eignen sich allerdings hervorragend zur Übung. Ihr merkt schon, Worms ist wieder eins von den Spielen, deren Spaßquotient viel mit Schadenfreude zu tun hat.
Pour de nombreux fans, ce premier Worms est le meilleur de la série. Même si le jeu a vieilli d’un point de vue graphique, la recette reste imparable. Une souris, un ordinateur, et vous pouvez jouer avec une demi-douzaine de potes à l’un des meilleurs jeux multijoueurs de l’histoire du jeu vidéo. Pourquoi se priver ?

If you're into video gaming, which I think you are when you're reading this article on this site, it's quite nearly impossible that you don't know Worms. It has been released on almost every system, so it was no surprise we got a Saturn version as well.
GamePro (US)
The battles aren't much fun. Puny worms and weapons make for weak characterization. And the action is too repetitive and slow to generate any excitement. You'll eventually want to squish worms.
