  1. Not a great game, but it is a good one.
  2. 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.

    The series still doesn’t quite work in 3D; you’d need a lot of patience and considerable tolerance to truly enjoy this game. [Aug 2005, p.112]
  4. Now that the game is established in a 3-D world, it has, for me at least, lost a little of its gripping intensity — an option to switch action between 2-D and 3-D would have been a nice touch.

    As the rest of the games in the series, Worms 4 is a blast when played with other people. Single player experience is mostly training for multiplayer, but still quite entertaining. The games biggest flaw is the usual sequel curse: there’s really not enough new content that you’d have to get this game, if you own the previous one in the series. [June 2005, p.72]

    Old-school gameplay has never worked quite as well in 3D, and the entire production feels rough around the edges. Action fans risk dying of boredom with this one.

    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.

    Not as good as Armageddon but not the worst. But the AI only has 3 different setting. The "miss every turn and kill my teammates" setting. TheNot as good as Armageddon but not the worst.
