    Worms: Open Warfare 2: After 2006's disastrous Open Warfare (the PSP version was good), Team17 had Two Tribes handle this instalment. There are 33 weapons and utilities to use. There is a lot of customisation including the landscape and flag editor. The online is excellent and the laboratory mode is fun. However, you cannot have your own names online. This is because parents don't want a little boy playing against a weirdo because lots of kids have a DS. Verdict: Presentation: 9 - Laboratory mode is fun and online is excellent. Graphics: 8.5 - While the frame rate can nosedive during explosions the textures are high-res and attempt to push the DS. Sound: 9 - Speech banks are really funny. But you'll miss out on Thespian. Gameplay: 9.5 - Perfectly paced and the AI problems from the original Open Warfare are fixed. Lasting Appeal: 9.5 - There is a ton to do here from creating your own landscapes to online play. Overall: 9.5 - Excellent - Two Tribes have done an excellent job with this sequel and every complaint from the original Open Warfare have been addressed. Collapse

  1. It's the same old Worms at the core, but it's the franchise at its best. [Sept 2007, p.72]
  2. 87
    A massive upgrade to the original game, so much so that it really should have been its own brand instead of "Number Two" of the 2005 release.
  3. A solid Worms game but one that's not particularly well tailored to the DS. [Oct 2007, p.84]
