  1. All the wacky weapons and wormitude are present in Worms 3D, but it offers far more frustrating moments than fun ones.

    While Worms 3D essentially delivers what it says on the tin, in surrendering its intuitive interface the concept has evolved into a far less attractive proposition. A shame. [Dec 2003, p.126]

Some did better than others, and Worms 3D managed to pull the Z axis off very well.

    Why am I reviewing this more than ten years late? Because I still play it! XBox 360 supports this gem of a game. With a huge variety of maps and weapons, the game is not going to grow old soon.

    In 2D Worms, games are always more or less the same due to the fact that the maps are literally two-dimensional. In Worms 3D, all the maps are so different that you're going to find dozens more ways to enjoy the game.

    The introduction of Z axis means that you have to aim your shots much better than in 2D. Thus, the skill ceiling is higher, which is always a good thing. A couple of weapons have been removed/replaced and the flame system doesn't work quite as well as in other Worms, but those are very minor setbacks.

    Overall, it's a deep and diverse game. Try it if you can. Do note that the console version has a glitch: not all weapons can be obtained from crates outside of the PC version.
