  1. The best Worms ever. [Sept 2009, p.103]
  2. Still awesome online. [Aug 2009, p.94]
  3. Though I slightly miss the facility to generate random landscape types, this is a tiny insignificant niggle. Worms 2: Armageddon is sublime and should definitely be high on your XBLA shopping list.
  4. This Worms release is by far one of the best in recent memory and does an excellent job of providing fresh graphics that remain true to the original style.

    Best weapons to date, crystal clear sound, easier control than previous Worms games.
  6. For the $10 price of admission, Worms 2: Armageddon is a hard game to pass up if you've ever remotely been interested in the series. There's a slew of content here and lots of replay value due to the massive quantity of unlockables and level of customization that the game allows.
  7. Worms 2: Armageddon is the complete XBLA answer to the franchise that fans have been waiting for. Worms 2 is also good enough for me to recommend it to new fans of the series; even more so than the free PC demos floating about in cyberspace.

    The Xbox worms games have nothing on the 2nd gen 2D PC worms games. The good worms games: Worms 2, Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party on the PC. The controls worked really well, the complete customisation available and the attention to detail in the weapon selection and landscapes were fantastic, these arcade worms are not a patch on them.

    Worms has come a long way. And this, is one of the best Worms game out there. The graphics are pretty nice and it has decent weapons choices. Because, the more weapons at your disposal, the more fun and addicting it is. Especially with multiplayer mode. Multiplayer is totally, the best part of the game, as you can spend time with a friend blowing each other up. That aside, the campaign is pretty decent and can get quite challenging at parts. In the end, Worms 2: Armageddon is a great game, that you should get if you get the chance. It earns a 9/10 from me. Full Review »

    Great game, all the fun I remember from the PC version back in the 90's and enough customization for replay value. I'm sure they'll add some DLC too for people who want more! Full Review »
