  1. Great value. [Feb 2011, p.103]
  2. It's the small touches that make a difference. [Feb 2011, p.87]

    Personally, we love Team17's game, but the concept is starting to grate a little now. [Issue#201, p.99]

    As solid as the core gameplay is, it's hard to shake the 'been there, done that' vibe of the whole package.

    With a 15 years history, Worms is one of the most loved and known brand in the entire Industry. Like all its modern ancestors, Battle Island lacks of innovation, offering a maybe too proven gameplay, but it's always a Worms chapter, and this is really more than enough.

    Worms: Battle Island keeps the series principles, two dimensions and a turn system, and it adds few but interesting new features which help it keep being fresh.

    Classic Worms gameplay is still an option in Worms: Battle Islands, but there's nothing else to justify buying it if you've already done so 19 times before. [Issue#105, p.118]

    One of those titles that gives the PSP it's bad name. The controls, level-design, and overall gameplay are just poorly designed. At no point did I ever have any fun with it. Admittedly this style of gameplay has never appealed to me. I've experienced numerous versions of this game on various free-to-play flash game websites. Unfortunately this PSP version brings nothing new or interesting to the table. It's just an overall bad strategy game. I highly recommend you don't play it. Expand
