    Sure, with its simplistic graphics, it's definitely a budget game, but it's one that actually deserves a place outside the bargain bin. Those worms want to be on top, after all.

    Worms: Battle Islands brings the classic Worms experience to the Nintendo platform and introduces a range of features that while not initially useful do enhance the playing experience when played with friends. What makes the deal better, is that it is available at a budget price.

    Still, both Worms veterans and newcommers alike should check out Battle Islands; with such little left to expand on, this is probably as good as it's going to get. [Feb 2011, p.87]

    If you can get some friends together for local multiplayer, you'll probably have some fun with this title, but if you're picking it up and hope to get into the online side, I'd definitely suggest avoiding this one.

    Worms: Battle Islands is fun, but it's not long before it's relegated to the odd party game and the occasional commute.

    Worms is slowly getting stale and Battle Island is doing nothing to prevent that.

    A big disappointment from a one-time great. [Christmas 2010, p.73]

    Worms Battle Islands' graphics are bad, which is somewhat surprising as they are in 2D. The game name is due to customisable islands withWorms Battle Islands' graphics are bad, which is somewhat surprising as they are in 2D. The game name is due to customisable islands with special properties, but that is utterly forgettable. There is also a level editor, which sucks because it uses the wii remote to draw landscapes. Oh, and there's a custom weapon creator. Wow, amazing! No, because it's not a custom weapon creaor at all, just selecting power (out of three stars), speed (out of three stars), etc. A bad effort. Gameplay itself can be fun, but there's nothing different about it from other worms games. The puzzle missions are tedious. Expand
