Easily the pinnacle of the Worms series. Everything that needed to be added to the earlier games without the more gimmicky and confusing content of the later games. This is the essence of Worms. Should delight fans of the series and newcomers alike. Easy enough to pick up and play, but perfecting the art of Wormfare is no small thing.

Worms Armageddon was the stand-alone expansion to arguably the best artillery strategy ever made... Worms 2. Though it lacks the insanely tweakable ammo and game settings of the original and doesn't have boobytrapped crates, WA is the best iteration in the series. Especially given that it's playable on modern Windows systems since the 3.16 patch.

Forget Reloaded and other new Worms games: this game delivers everything you'ld want in almost perfect style. Thing is: you could get really good at it. It allows a great deal of skill development and at the same time it's a very capable strategy in its own right. Figure out your own style of play: very creative or very effective. Mass damage or darksiding!

ALSO a must on any decent LAN so make sure everyone of your friends picks it up at a sale (or have a working install on your pc as the game is portable ;)

gameplay: 10/10
sounds: 10/10
fun: 10/10

(PS just picked it up on steam, so time invested doesn't reflect the the real number of hours I spent on it since the 90's)

[EDIT]
I've read some negatives and wanted to give some heads-up to people that are unfamiliar with Worms games or with the old ones.

The full price of 15 euro's (or bucks or whatever) is quite a lot if you do not know what to expect. You'll probably better wait for a sale. Also, it's pretty smart to try and check if the game works on your system like it should beforehand. We have LAN's at least twice a year and some pc's have problems with the title, while others have no problem at all. I'm running Win10, my Win7 had no problems as well. I've seen people running 7,8 and 10 with and without problems, but mostly Win8 seems to be the biggest issue (which is to be expected of course :P). But as I said, I've never experienced problems on my systems after patch 3.16.

Furthermore there's quite a lot of contempt over the control scheme and that it isn't rebindable. I understand the issue, but that is indeed how old games often were made. And the game also provides few explanation about the mechanics involved. It's probably best to play with a friend that knows some of the basics, or someone that does want to give some education about it.

I'll consider making a small tut guide and vid if people'd like it and link it here and in the community hub.

Many moons have passed since the worms went to war.
Onwards and upwards, bigger weapons than before.
Boggy B took cover, he shivered on patrol.
The arms race crazy, simply way out of control.

Then his friend threw it, the latest device.
Boggy B went and got it, against all advice - "What the...?"
His tail was split, and his energy lost.
How many more will this dreaded war cost?

Then came the nuke, and the disease tumbling down.
If the bug didn't get to you, you'd probably drown.
But the worms battled on, through hunger and pain.
Living to fight, just to victor again.

And now it's the curtain call, the final onslaught,
no better bullet could you possibly have bought.
But spare a thought for Boggy and with it his friend.
So fight with their honour, and fight until the end.

The best Worms game to ever come out - seriously. If you are looking which Worm game to buy first, make it this one. Do not be fooled by my hours on steam, I've spent countless when I first bought the game back in 1999.

Worms Armageddon has single player elements and multi player elements to it. Traditionally, Worm games are turn based, and there can be two to four teams present on the battlefield. Each turn, a different worm has a chance to unleash mayhem. The playing terrain can be shot away with and you might find one of your worms just sitting above water, short of drowning. What makes this game dynamic is the multitude of weapons given at your disposal. Super sheep's that can fly through the air, controlled by the player. Holy hand grenades that take away a good chunk of the map. Banana bombs that bounce around everywhere and release more banana bombs. On the map as well, there are randomly placed proximity mines and fire barrels that explode and spread fire when provoked.

One player training missions are available and make for a good challenge and breakaway from single player mode. Teams can be customized from grave choice to voice type, even a flag can be thrown into the mix to represent your team. Custom names can also be given to team worm players.

This game is a good local game to play with friends, and probably is the only turn based game I'd be willing to play at any time. Absolutely, I would say this game is what made the series.

I would like to see maybe in a future Worms' series a real-time worm game rather than turn based. How would that work? Well if I got paid for further suggestions in my reviews I'd share how :).

Once upon a time, in the dark ages before I joined the Internet, a friend I had at the time somehow managed to get me a bootleg copy of this game. I installed it on the computer my parents had at the time.. and me and the friend spent endless zany hours blowing each other to smithereens.

"I'll blow you, up! No, I'll blow YOU up instead! ...Oops, I blew us both up..."

And I spent even more hours smacking the AI around for fun and hilarity when my friend wasn't around.

Fast forward to 2016, The computer and friend that I had at the time are long since gone, replaced by the doldrums of ordinary adult life. Then I found this game on sale via Steam and knew I had to buy it right away.

So that I can spend more endless hours blowing things to smithereens! =D

Come on guys, it is worms! The best part of the entire series, I would say. Really fun when you play with a friend on one computer and watch that via projector.

Great for casual gaming against a friend via Internet or sharing one computer.

There is no other Worms version and / or series which is beating the original Worms Armageddon of Team 17. The multiplayer mode is great, the amount of fun is unlimited + the community still active. Lots of editing possibilites inside and outside of the game, a must have for every Worms fan.

2D is the best D.
