    This is a great little arcade version of Worms and don't let the nay-sayers convince you otherwise. If you want a million weapons that get more and more ludicrous with every edition of the game, then go back to the myriad of other Worms games and play on your own. This is like the original Worms with suped up , Armageddon graphics.

This is like the original Worms with suped up , Armageddon graphics. Yes, the settings are basic, but if you want a full-blown Worms game, wait til Team 17 bring out the next instalment, but this is the Live Arcade version which, by necessity, needs to be simple and it is... and it's a joy to play! As ever though, the main problem is the Xbox Live... not the game itself, but the idiots who play online, lose two of their Worms early on and bail out of the game, leaving the rest of the players with the "Game session is no longer available" message and nothing to do other than restart the game. I do hope Xbox bring out some kind of system that allows for automatic punishment of early leavers. Collapse

    CLASSIC! This game is one of the best. More weaponswould have made it better, but this is well worth the few bucks spent.

    The classic Worms is now available on xbox live arcade. They say simple ideas are often the best and this is definitely true in the case of this game. Forget the 3D updates which improved the graphics but lost the 'pick up and play' fun factor this is Worms as it was originally, 2D and brilliant fun.

    Even if you haven't been a follower of the Worms series since its inception many years ago, you should still give this addictive little game a try. It's like artillery on steroids with a touch of Cartoon Network. If they hadn't scaled down the weapon and map sets, I would have given it a 10. If you've never played Worms in its previous incarnations on the PC, though, Even if you haven't been a follower of the Worms series since its inception many years ago, you should still give this addictive little game a try.

    Only the all-time classic PlayStation 1 version of Worms tops this. For 800 points ($10), you get a fantastic game, and one with replay value far exceeding most $60 retail games.

  1. At the very least, the 360's first "Worms" game recalls the series' hearty roots--and for that, we're thankful. [Mar 2007, p.79]
  2. It does right by the classic Worms gameplay, and it's probably the best-looking Worms game ever; but a shortness of features makes it feel a little bare-bones, not to mention a little overpriced.
  3. It’s a shame that some of the backgrounds and voice packs seem to have been limited for that trademarked MSP exploitation later on, but even in its most basic form, Worms is still highly recommended.
