  1. All the wacky weapons and wormitude are present in Worms 3D, but it offers far more frustrating moments than fun ones.
  2. While Worms 3D essentially delivers what it says on the tin, in surrendering its intuitive interface the concept has evolved into a far less attractive proposition. A shame. [Dec 2003, p.126]

    Turning the much loved Worms series into a 3D title certainly made sense at the time but this attempt simply didn't work. The 3D environment made aiming much more difficult than it was previously and without destructible environments much of the strategy, and therefore fun, of the originals was removed. Full Review »

    This game is strategic and fun. I played it when I was a kid, and I really enjoyed it. The best in the series. It haves so many weapons to use, and some destructive bombs... and sheep :D! Full Review »

    Worms 3D is a fun and challenging game. The game play is similar to anyone who's played a Worms game before but now the game is played within a 3D rendered world rather than a 2D platform. This is a neat addiction to the series but it can be tricky to aim your weapons and judge where your shots are going to land. However, this element does add a lot of strategy to the game; you need to be really good and learn to judge where the shots of your weapons are roughly going to land. The weapons from past Worms games make a return like the Bazooka and Sheep which are fun to use and Worms 3D introduces a new utility; Red Bull! Guess what this does to your worm! The graphics are nice and like past Worms games, terrain is fully destructible which are formed from explosions and usage of your weapons. Worms 3D is a neat idea, bringing 3D to the Worms series and every Worms fan should like this. Full Review »
