  • Summary: Worms Forts: Under Siege! puts you in command of a team of up to four fort-dwelling worms. The game is set in the cartoon environments, and you direct your worm garrison to quickly construct defenses to maximize your strategic advantage, you direct the worms to expand your castle to seize valuable resources, and you have them build weapons of mass destruction to destroy your opponents' fortifications. Test yourself against the single-player game by battling through the 20 missions. When you finish, take on three of your friends in Fort vs. Fort mode. Expand

  1. Playing Worms Forts is not entirely unlike finding that you have just been poured the worm out of the bottom of a tequila bottle. You're not entirely sure about whether it's a good thing or not; but swig back this odd looking creature and an hour later good times follow.
  2. Forts is probably not for everyone, but those of us with hearts as squishy as the loveable mud-chewers themselves will be in seventh heaven. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  3. The fun really does lie in the multiplayer, because the drunken laughs my friends and I have had with this game have been fantastic and they went on and on into the early hours. "Crack another can open, lets have another match, I won't lose this time!" - is something you'll find yourself saying more often than not.
  4. Just because you can cut a worm in half to get two new ones doesn't mean you actually should. [Apr 2005, p.81]
  5. Add in gameplay that revolves too much on slow moving creatures and fetching, and you have yourself a game that is frustrating some of the time and boring when it's not frustrating.
  6. The most glaring omission in Worms Forts: Under Siege! is some genuine enthusiasm.
  7. Despite graphical plus points, Worms Forts: Under Siege! suffers the pains incurred through fundamental flaws that impact the gameplay quality and the overall experience a gamer can have.
