Battles include the Spanish Armada conquest in "Pirates!," the frontlines of real war in "World War II" and laser shooting spaceships in "Space War!," among others. In addition to the classic Deathmatch mode, the game also includes robust new single and multiplayer modes such as Rope Race, Fort, Puzzle and Campaign modes that challenge players to use new strategies and teamwork to defeat their enemies. The new Firing Range allows gamers to test their weapons skills, including 11 new weapons like the Bunker Buster and Buffalo of Lies as well as classics such as the Super Sheep, Concrete Donkey and the Holy Hand Grenade. Gamers that take the battle online will be able to demonstrate their Worms combat prowess with daily updated stats and leaderboards on the official Worms website. Players will also enjoy the new, in-depth customization options including custom landscape and team flag editors in addition to modified hats, tombstones and victory dances for their worm teams.

    With online options, fun gameplay, hilarious presentation and a can-of-worms full of extras, Open Warfare 2 shouldn't be missed by anyone.

    OW2 looks and sounds great, and offers more content than any Worms before it. It's an excellent value and a wonderful addition to the PSP's action-strategy lineup.
  3. Much like almost every iteration of the series, Worms: Open Warfare 2 does not seek to completely revolutionize the series, but merely adds another layer of weapons, modes, and customizations.
  4. So, whether online Worms floats your boat or it's a nostalgia trip you're after, this is the Worms game to get.

    Certainly one of the best multiplayer experiences on the PSP. [Issue#157, p.94]
  6. Being able to see more of the battlefield due to the widescreen form factor of the PSP is nice for aiming.

    Showing its age in terms of ingenuity. Shame. [Oct 2007, p.84]

    For critics to deduct points from Worms for not being innovative is ridiculous. The gameplay is classic, deducting points for it is like For critics to deduct points from Worms for not being innovative is ridiculous. The gameplay is classic, deducting points for it is like deducting points from a Tetris game for its gameplay or Pacman for its gameplay. This is the most balanced, best presented, fun and strategic Worms yet. Worms is a great game for a handheld, and this game capitalizes on that. Worms fans should be pleased and this is a great package for newbies too. Most highly recommended. Expand

    This game is awesome, it could possibly be the most feature rich game on the psp. Yes its still worms but worms is great an they put a few This game is awesome, it could possibly be the most feature rich game on the psp. Yes its still worms but worms is great an they put a few spins on the gameplay like new weapons and new physics elements like the water rising effect in the pirate level. My only gripe about the game is a very minor bug that makes you wait the cpu's hole turn even if hes down but its only an extra 30 seconds an doesnt hurt the gameplay an doesnt happen every time. I think this game should be a must buy. Expand

    Much stronger game than its predecessor: It has faster loading times, faster AI, a dozen new weapons, a long career mode, puzzle mode, a shop Much stronger game than its predecessor: It has faster loading times, faster AI, a dozen new weapons, a long career mode, puzzle mode, a shop where you spend points to buy new stages, sounds, weapons & more, good music, and last, but not least, online multiplayer with support for clans, buddies, downloads, leaderboards & more. Definitely one of the most fun and polished strategy/action games on the PSP. Superb work by Team17. It deserves a better score than 62 like PSM3 Magazine UK give it. I sincerely hope this game won't be overseen like a few past games have. Expand
