Feb 10, 2011Worms 2 is here to rectify the mistakes made with the first game, but I'm sad to report that it isn't entirely successful. Yes, there are tons of new weapons and modes, and online multiplayer is finally here; theoretically, Team 17 did everything they should have to deliver the ultimate Worms experience, but a still-clunky UI and shoddy graphics make this an inadequate sequel.
