  1. The fun really does lie in the multiplayer, because the drunken laughs my friends and I have had with this game have been fantastic and they went on and on into the early hours.
  2. It may take a while for you to get into Worms Forts. I didn't really like it at first but like a tapeworm, it eventually grew on me.
  3. While it's not as polished as most modern offerings, it's priced to sell and still raises grins like nothing else.

    The base-building mechanic isn't a terrible idea in itself. The way it's implemented however limits your freedom of action and has you focusing more on grabbing crates and erecting towers than on actually fighting the opposition.
  5. Ironically Worms Forts would probably be a faster and more intense game if worms didn't feature at all. Read into that what you will.
  6. Forts Under Siege might have enough reward on offer but the series is still relying on gamers to meet it halfway by investing ample time and patience in learning its demanding intricacies. [Dec 2004, p.112]
  7. Suffers the pains incurred through fundamental flaws that impact the gameplay quality and the overall experience a gamer can have.
  8. And now, dressed up in this sorry state, trying to excuse itself like a dad in a night club, there's not even that to defend it. [May 2006, p.97]
  9. The fort-versus-fort gameplay definitely doesn't gel with the Worms dynamic. Instead it robs a once-proud series of almost everything that made it so memorable, and the result is a game that tires as much as it feels tired.
  10. It barely raises a smile, reducing most gamers to a grim comatose zomebie-state, the only sign a life now a dull flicker of hate in their glazed, cold eyes. [Christmas 2004, p.107]
