A great game for gamers of all types, singleplayer will keep you occupied for quite some time, multiplayer extends longevity greatly.

It’s easy to see why the game has such staying power as no two games are ever the same, and even for single players there’s an extensive campaign and puzzle mode to chunk through even if you never take the game online.Worms 2: Armageddon is probably the most accomplished and polished version of the game, and one that’s eminently suited to the Xbox Live Arcade. Though I slightly miss the facility to generate random landscape types, this is a tiny insignificant niggle. Worms 2: Armageddon is sublime and should definitely be high on your XBLA shopping list.

Team17 Software have truly though of everything with this Worms title, and there is no doubt that if you’ve been hankering for a good game of Worms on your 360, it's finally here. Particular mention really needs to go to the ability to fully customise the game in a way that up until now only PC gamers have been able to do. It sounds like a simple thing, but really it isn’t, and Worms 2: Armageddon delivers in almost every area. As a downside, the game is still just Worms and it really does nothing to bring anything new to the table, but then again, does it have to?

Worth Playing
For the $10 price of admission, Worms 2: Armageddon is a hard game to pass up if you've ever remotely been interested in the series. There's a slew of content here and lots of replay value due to the massive quantity of unlockables and level of customization that the game allows. With a decent single-player mode and an incredible amount of multiplayer content, Worms 2 is sure to be a hit anytime you have friends over, and there's even plenty of fun in the single-player campaign. We're finally getting a fully featured Worms game for the Xbox 360. While it's a fantastic game, people who bought the original will probably be annoyed because they'll feel like they're paying $10 for the title that they should have gotten in 2007.

Worms 2: Armageddon is the complete XBLA answer to the franchise that fans have been waiting for. Worms 2 is also good enough for me to recommend it to new fans of the series; even more so than the free PC demos floating about in cyberspace. Team 17 did this one up right, and I expect to see the same level of competency in the DLC bits planned for Armageddon.

If you liked the first Worms game on XBLA, don't hesitate to download this bigger, prettier sequel. If you were a bit bothered by what was missing from the first game, take Armageddon's trial for a spin and I'm pretty sure all will be forgiven. This is one of the most fun multiplayer games around, and now the single-player campaign provides a satisfying experience, as well. Few games offer the chance to wield a weapon called the Buffalo of Lies -- don't miss yours.

Between all of the solo gaming available, the tons of fun you can have on Xbox Live, and the potential for more of both with DLC, you're looking at a great purchase for just 800 Microsoft Points ($10 / £6.80).

Worms 2: Armageddon is a worthy follow-up to 2007’s Worms. With an improved online infrastructure, new vertical levels and a variety of gameplay options, the game will keep you entertained for a long time.

Console Monster
To conclude, the new weapons, improved campaign and great Xbox LIVE game modes make Worms 2: Armageddon, like its predecessor, a contender for best Xbox LIVE Arcade title. At 800 Microsoft Points, it’s money well-spent and a must-buy.

The campaign mode is genuinely good fun, mixing in puzzle levels that really do challenge you to think outside of the box. There are loads of different backgrounds to play on and the combination of customization options means that online opponents really are recognizably different. There are the odd little quirks to deal with, like smoke trails disappearing or AI players pulling off completely ludicrous shots with suspicious regularity and the between-round animations / camera changes could be considerable smoother and faster. But this is easily the best modern Worms game and just about the most fun you can have with a bunch of smack-talking mates and a crate of your favorite beverage on a cold winter's night. Highly recommended.

Worms 2: Armageddon is a great arcade title that offers more content than most retail boxes, and at times, better gameplay.

Eigenlijk slaat alle kritiek die we op Worms 2: Armageddon hebben, op de gehele reeks. Als los spel is Armageddon veruit de beste Worms die tot nu toe is verschenen en een goedmaker voor de matige eerste Worms op Xbox Live Arcade. Maar Team 17 kan niet tot in lengte van dagen door blijven gaan met Worms opnieuw uitbrengen met een paar minimale aanpassingen. We zien het voor deze keer nog door de vingers, omdat Xbox Live Arcade nog geen goede Worms had en de game in essentie nog steeds erg leuk is om tegen vrienden te spelen. Maar het wordt nu toch echt tijd de reeks eens opnieuw uit te vinden. Na het mislukte 3D uitstapje heeft Team 17 een verstandig stapje terug gedaan, nu moet de ontwikkelaar maar eens een grote sprong vooruit maken.

Worms 2: Armageddon is a great package that compiles all the best elements of the series. It also brings Worms up to date with crisp visuals, plenty of customisation options, and excellent multiplayer. If you're a fan of Worms, then this brings back all of the classic weapons, and if you've never tried it out, then this is the perfect place to start. Either way, it's a great multiplayer game that delivers more than enough value for the money.

Una descarga francamente interesante. Los aficionados a las series encontrarán aquí una de sus mejores entregas, mientras que los que nunca se han acercado a la marca Worms darán en Armageddon con uno de los lanzamientos más completos de la saga.
