In single-player modes there’s even more beyond the day-to-day business of destroying worms. Through the 25 missions, you’re also charged with objectives such as recovering items or smashing scenery. All the single-player maps are available to play in multiplayer mode, along with a further set of 20 multiplayer-specific maps. With bold levels, an improved 3D camera and animation system, a stunning arsenal delivering comedy kabooms, the loveable, customisable, yet entirely destructible, worms are back in force with Worms 4: Mayhem.

  1. One of the best turn-based strategy games on the market. The single player mode is not so glorious, but with friends the game is a real blast. [Sept. 05]
  2. If there’s any huge issue with Worms 4: Mayhem, it’s that there’s no massive leap into uncharted ground here.
  3. Another masterpiece from the Yorkshire Tea drinking developers, another multiplayer hit from those flat-cap wearing geniuses.
  4. One of the worst downfalls we found in the PS2 version was the lack of an online multiplayer mode, which is intact in the Xbox and PC versions.
  5. Not a great game, but it is a good one.
  6. The 3D view tends to slow the pace of the game as you struggle to find your targets, resulting in play that's not as frantic as it should be. But aside from this frustration, Worms still has a magic touch.
  7. The gameplay itself is still in relatively good health, and with a good deal of thought and tweaking could be as enjoyable as it ever was, but if Worms is to once again be a post-pub game of choice, it needs to regain its sense of humour.

    Worms was always a fun game to play with our brother and neighbors and friends, the side scrolling playstyle always worked well, but bring itWorms was always a fun game to play with our brother and neighbors and friends, the side scrolling playstyle always worked well, but bring it all to 3D universe, was a great idea, the game has a good variety of weapons, a good set of items for customization, the worms voices are comical and make you smile often.
    maybe the worse part in this game is it's campaign, it's boring.
    graphics are ok and sound effects and soundtrack are good, the physics in game is (for rockets and bombs) is good, you really have to do some calculations before shooting in your opponent.
    AI is a problem as well, like Yaysuz said, but you can create your own teams and set its difficult, that equilibrate the challenge.
    i recommend, Worms 4 Mayhem is one of the best Worms game we have until now.

    Team 17 are still a bit immature in the 3D arena but this is certainly an improvement over the original Worms3D outing.
