SummaryWorms 3D + bunch of insignificant tweaks = Worms 4
The GoodIn comparison with Worms 3D this game contains some new weapons, like sentry gun, mine factory or fat kid. During the gameplay you can receive trophies. Trophies are given for many achievements, like collecting enormous amount of weapon crates or killing a group of worms with single sheep. Moreover, after completing every mission you earn some virtual money. You can buy with them new hats for your worms, maps or weapons. Your team is highly customizable - you can change look of your worms (they can wear hats, gloves, glasses and moustache), their special weapon (which you can create) and other things, such as their flag, grave, speech etc. Team17 also added to the game a weapon factory and some new game types for multiplayer.
The BadDespite presence of new weapons I can guarantee that you will mostly use shotgun, bazooka and grenade. Those novelties are rare and not so powerful like good old Holy Hand Grenade. Most of players will probably buy every map and weapon, but later they won't buy anything more. Why? Because after buying every map and weapon there are only new hats and speeches are left, and they mostly aren't worth buying. Weapon factory is very limited - you can create only your own bazooka, grenade and air-raid. Moreover, your weapons cannot be very powerful - there's an indicator which tells you if your gun is too powerful and won't let you save it, unless you decrease it's strength. Team17 also limited possibilities of map generator in multiplayer, without any rational reason. Some new features like teleports, gas barrels, and mine factories are rather annoying. Graphics and sounds aren't very different from Worms 3D, released two years earlier.
