    The game is fun. very customizable and the good humor continues. The controls take a bit to get used to, but are interesting once you get used to them. The only drawbacks are the price and the lack of online multi player.

    Yes there are fewer weapons. Having no OL play is silly. But the controls are fine: Better than any previous Worms game in fact as you can even line up shots with dotted "practice throws". You can also see the whole screen by pressing the "+" button: It has a far, near and close camera that works great, and apparently undiscovered by some of the critics.

    Multiplayer skirmishes still make for a good time, and I definitely support the return to 2-D, but this series just can't seem to take a real step forward without taking two steps back. [Apr 2008, p.85]

    This is one Worms game that should be left to float off in space. [Apr 2008, p.76]

    The weapon control is fresh and fun, there’s still a huge list of options, and the CG and voice work inclusion certainly helps. If you were hoping for a robust online experience, however, that will have to wait for A Space Oddity 2, which we’re sure will be coming sometime down the line.
