Worms is back on the PC at last — and it’s better than ever. Both fans of the series and newcomers will thoroughly enjoy all aspects, a game that’s very hard to find fault in.

Although Worms Reloaded has its share of rare but notable problems, it is without a doubt the pinnacle of the franchise, the single best and most complete version of Worms to date. The level of customization is staggering and the game’s timeless artillery gameplay is just as fun as it was fifteen years ago. Hopefully the developers at Team 17 will give the game a chance to breathe and find an audience before releasing yet another iteration to be filed in the worms’ seemingly endless march towards gaming oblivion.

Worms Reloaded oli - ja on - nostalginen kokemus. Olin tutustunut pelien kolmiulotteisiin kokeiluihin ja pettynyt ankarasti. Nyt täysin uusittu kaksiulotteinen versio, joillakin uusilla ja useilla vanhoilla kartoilla, pyyhkii niillä pöydän. Worms on tarkoitettu kaksiulotteiseksi vuoropohjaiseksi räiskinnäksi eikä miksikään muuksi. Piste.

This is the biggest, prettiest Worms, yet. Strategy fans will find one of the most fun multiplayer games around, and there is plenty to do on your own, as well. Few games offer the chance to wield a weapon called the Buffalo of Lies -- don't miss yours.

The Worms series continues to evolve, but it also keeps things simple. The engine remains largely unchanged from previous editions, but the level of customization and fun as grown even greater. Teams can be customized right down to their little hats and makeshift grave markers! Battles can be customized down to the number of each weapon, mine, and crate. In the future, I would like to see a sense of purpose and achievement added to the multiplayer modes. In the new Super Smash Brothers games, players can unlock secrets by either meeting certain objectives or simply playing a TON of multiplayer battles. If I could have gotten even a small number of coins for each multiplayer Worms match, I would have been able to buy Armageddon ten times over. I think the in-game achievement and the personal sense of purpose are enough incentive for fans of single player gaming to dig right into the campaign, but I’ve always felt Worms to be a lot more enjoyable in good company.

Wenn man es genau nimmt, ist Worms Reloaded nichts anderes als ein Worms Remake von Worms Armageddon oder Worms World Party, den Editor für Landschaften und Würmer gab es auch schon vor zehn Jahren. Ich kann mir auf Steam also für knapp 20 Euro die hübschere Version eines alten Spiels kaufen. Ganz ehrlich: Das mache ich gerne, und zwar mit einem breiten Grinsen im Gesicht. Natürlich bekommen Sie abgesehen von ein paar neuen Waffen und Karten nichts Neues präsentiert, aber was soll man an einem genialen Spielprinzip und einer Präsentation mit Kultstatus noch verbessern? Eben!

The changes are all skin-deep, as it’s still the same wacky warfare we fell in love with in the 90s. However, considering how slow, confusing and unappreciated the 3D versions seemed, a lightweight remake for today’s networking capabilities is more than welcome if you’re longing for this stuff.

My recommendation for those who are already fans of the series is definitely to buy it, but if you’re more of a real-time strategy fan or just aren’t sure that this is a game you’d enjoy, play it first.

Worms as a concept has remained unchanged from its early days on the Amiga but remains as absorbing as ever. The surreal weaponry, cut-out levels, and silly voices are all present and correct – as is, unfortunately, the ridiculous accuracy of the enemy AI, but the sense of humour and addictive gameplay will keep you coming back. Accessible to newbies and series veterans alike, this reboot of the recent console release sees the franchise make a welcome return to its spiritual home on the PC, and not before time. The Landscape Editor and speech bank extras are just the icing on the cake and go a little way to blunting the disappointment at the near identical port. The game is just Worms in all its cartoony, colourful, violent glory and it won’t likely ever change much – all Team 17 need to do is change the landscapes, mix up the weaponry, and cash the cheque every few years, but to be honest, they don’t really need to do much else.

Custom landscapes certainly aren't reason enough to buy Worms Reloaded if you've already played the aforementioned X360 game, but other reasons to pass on this $20 game are few and far between. The occasionally amusing voice samples repeat frequently enough that they might become grating after a while, and online multiplayer games take longer than they should because a "waiting for other players" message pops up a lot between turns and hangs around until everyone's connections are ready to proceed, but outside of these minor complaints, Worms Reloaded doesn't do much wrong. Even the cartoony art style, which is still recognizable as that employed in the first game, defies its age and continues to impress with amusing animations and updated effects for water, fire, and smoke. Regardless of your feelings about the ongoing Worms conflict, your best bet is to become embroiled in it.

В итоге перед нами все те же хорошо знакомые червяки, ведущие бесконечный бой не за природные ресурсы или расширения границ, а просто для своего и (в первую очередь) нашего удовольствия. Ветераны серии освоятся здесь, как рыба в воде, ибо совершенно никаких изменений в игровую механику разработчики не внедрили. Но если вы ничего раньше не слышали об этой легендарной серии (откуда вы тогда родом?), то Worms Reloaded – это прекрасный повод к ней приобщиться сейчас, а заодно и наглядно убедиться, что 2D по-прежнему актуально.

Après Worms 2 : Armageddon sur Xbox 360, Worms Reloaded confirme le retour réussi de la série à la 2D sur PC. Déjà drôle en solo, cet épisode devient une nouvelle fois carrément mortel à plusieurs. Et même si son contenu ne peut rivaliser avec celui de Worms World Party, son petit prix et sa jouabilité soignée justifieront certainement son acquisition.

Worms Reloaded is a pretty and engaging game that, while light on the single player replayability will charm and endear with its quirky weaponry and unique brand of multiplayer carnage. There is no other game series like it and the gaming world would be diminished without the presence of the endless warfare of Worms.

Game Kudos
Worms Reloaded is a game that caters to both the hardcore fans and newcomers of the series. Team 17 have taken the scaffold of the original games and beefed it up with an array of new features. At the given price, there is a fair amount of content offered, though it will be online gamers and socialites who get the most bang for their buck.

Nog altijd even grappig en nog altijd verrassend verslavend, maar jammer genoeg niet de vooruitgang waarop we hadden gehoopt.

If you already have Worms 2: Armageddon on a console, then you won’t be missing much by skipping Reloaded since it’s basically just an enhanced port. But if you have never played Worms before, or absolutely need a PC version, now’s as good a time as any to jump into the slimy, slithery, British-y chaos. 15 years in, and this war’s just getting started.

Multiplayer is firmly where it’s at though, and aside from a few mid-game syncing issues, a ridiculously oversized UI and some issues finding public games in the server browser that will hopefully be patched this side of soon (check the official forums for updates), Worms remains as great as ever. It’s a simple, beautiful game, and while you may wince at paying for it yet again, Reloaded is a great version that will have fans and new players alike falling back under the spell of the spineless ones.

Och ja, i sällskap med ett par mordiska vänner är Worms faktiskt fortfarande kul. Efter alla dessa år. Det som talar för just Reloaded är den skarpa grafiken och det smidiga distributionssystemet via Steam. Förvänta dig för allt i världen bara ingenting nytt från Team 17.
