In single-player modes there’s even more beyond the day-to-day business of destroying worms. Through the 25 missions, you’re also charged with objectives such as recovering items or smashing scenery. All the single-player maps are available to play in multiplayer mode, along with a further set of 20 multiplayer-specific maps. With bold levels, an improved 3D camera and animation system, a stunning arsenal delivering comedy kabooms, the loveable, customisable, yet entirely destructible, worms are back in force with Worms 4: Mayhem.

    One of the best turn-based strategy games on the market. The single player mode is not so glorious, but with friends the game is a real blast. [Sept. 05]
  2. If there’s any huge issue with Worms 4: Mayhem, it’s that there’s no massive leap into uncharted ground here.
  3. Improvements have been made throughout the game and it retains a strong sense of fun throughout, something that has only been accentuated by the inclusion of the various customisations.
  4. One of the worst downfalls we found in the PS2 version was the lack of an online multiplayer mode, which is intact in the Xbox and PC versions.
  5. Not a great game, but it is a good one.
  6. The 3D view tends to slow the pace of the game as you struggle to find your targets, resulting in play that's not as frantic as it should be. But aside from this frustration, Worms still has a magic touch.
  7. The gameplay itself is still in relatively good health, and with a good deal of thought and tweaking could be as enjoyable as it ever was, but if Worms is to once again be a post-pub game of choice, it needs to regain its sense of humour.

    A very cool game to play with your friends, however game suffers from a boring single player mode.

    A very cool game to play with your friends, however game suffers from a boring single player mode.
    - The A.I is repetitive and boring to play with, it always take 2-3 paths to deal with the game, its very linear and bland.
    - Few technical bugs with weapons and maps.
    - Graphics wise the game is nice looking.
    - Music is ok, but gets tiresome after some time because of low variety.
    - Campaign mode and challenges are pretty cool, the costume mode and tweaks the game adds is also super fun.

    Still not as good as the Worms 2 world party, but its a nice game to play with friends.
