    Worms W.M.D feels like a celebration of over two decades of Worms, if you’ve been a fan of the series at any point it’s worth checking back in. If you’re new to Worms and after a good multiplayer game, there’s a lot to like in this game. Turn based worm warfare finds the perfect home on the Switch.

    It's Worms, and Team 17 has done a good job in restraining itself this time around so that the only gimmicks within the game genuinely add to it. What's important to note here is that the Nintendo Switch is absolutely perfect for Worms, and that fact alone makes this the best entry in the series in years.

    Worms is a timeless classic that finds the perfect home on Switch. One of the best episodes in the series, to play on the go. What could go possibly wrong? Nothing! Another must have for the new Nintendo console. This version has some exclusive content, soon-to-be released on other platforms as well.

    While not adding too much to the formula, Worms W.M.D’s back to the roots philosophy is welcomed. The new vehicles and weapons are great and the fact it’s on the Nintendo Switch enables you to set up a Worms party anywhere you go. It’s a great game that Switch owners should pick up.

    Worms W.M.D. is a game worthy of the Worms series and a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch library. Not only it features the classic gameplay of the Worms series and an abundant amount of content but it also offers its players high visual standards and plenty of customization options. A sign that the series is alive and well.

    The introduction of crafting weapons between rounds adds to the complexity of the strategy in a good way – the game can’t be picked up as instantly as games such as Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, but with time and dedication, you’ll find a seriously rewarding tactical battle game. Some niggling factors such as the awkwardness of moving your character around, the fact that your movement and weapon’s aim are frustratingly locked to the same control stick, and the unfortunate lack of ability to play online with friends prevent the game from being the amazing experience it could have been, though. If you love the Worms franchise or games of the genre you’ll likely have a lot of fun by grabbing a copy of this game, just bear these little things in mind as you make your decision.

It has an awesome art-style and a really good and amusing voice acting. Game play is really fun and has some depth to it for all the strategy lovers like myself. One complaint i have is how small the community is sometimes i cant find nobody to play with online even though its a new game. Good thing it has a really good single player and local multiplayer mode. Expand
