    Playing online with a friend resulted in many laughs, which is what Worms is all about. While it may not exceed the greatness of Armageddon in some respects, Worms is definitely back, and W.M.D. shouldn’t be passed over if you want an enjoyable night of gaming chucking a bunch of banana bombs and a slew of other new crazy weapons at a friend.

    Worms W.M.D is a fun game. Sometimes it's silly, sometimes it can be frustrating, but no matter how the battles go, you manage to have fun. It's quirkiness and overall fun factor give it a charm that not many turn based games of this caliber can even come close to.

    One of the best Worms games from the last few years, thanks to old school gameplay coupled with good additions capable of deepening it even more. We're still missing a complete levels editor, hoping it will be added later.

    Worms W.M.D. is great re-entry point for people like me who have sort of fallen off the wagon with the series over time. It keeps what I remember, and refines what I had issues with. The hilarity is still there, the solid game play shines above the rest, and it feels good to be back.

    A worthy continuation of the Worms franchise, a nice return to form after deviating to 3D for a few years. Worms W.M.D gets everything right from a mechanical standpoint, but we can't help but feel a few of the design choices were unnecessary. The big new additions are hit and miss, but in the middle of all the fluff there's a solid, very playable game - especially if you're into couch co-op/multiplayer.

    The vehicles radically change the gameplay but are in keeping with the outrageous power and unpredictability of Worms combat.

    While this addition includes vehicles and crafting elements, Worms W.M.D is near identical to the same twenty-one-year-old formula that Team 17 have been chugging out since the 90s. I was expecting more changes but they’re on the right track.

    Worms: WMD is Worms as it should be, fast, fun, diabolically evil (AI matches are great) and loads of fun on your own. It really comes aliveWorms: WMD is Worms as it should be, fast, fun, diabolically evil (AI matches are great) and loads of fun on your own. It really comes alive when you play with friends, with, or against the A.I. The new weapons, vehicles, buildings, and emplacements change the game fundamentally and for the better. It's huge fun, and launching an ambush from inside a building with a rocket launcher, or exploding sheep never gets old.

    WMD going back to hand-drawn, hand-animated 2D graphics means that the game looks and plays really well. It's a solid frame-rate throughout and the levels of detail on everything is just gorgeous. The worms have huge amounts of character, reacting to the slightest danger with comical levels of fear.

    It's what Worms has been, and always should be.

    I'm reminded of the times I've had with the old PC game Scorch (or Scorched Earth), and the fun I had just blowing up little tanks. Only this time, it's little worms again.

    Welcome back Worms, you've been missed!
