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)

This is the best Worms out there. The graphics are low-fi but very charming, the physics engine feels great, and there's all kinds of neat weapons and game options that never made a reappearance. The only problem is that the single-player sucks and it's how you unlock all the cool options but if you really want that stuff you can just get a team editor and give yourself a completed save file.

Or you can be a total dork like me and do it for real for no particular reason.

The definitive Worms game. Worms 2 was great, I thought it couldn't be topped. Then this (in 1999) and World Party came out, and my mind has blown. Why do the other Worms games exist? Reloaded? Clan Wars? I'll never understand. This is one of the best games in the universe.

This is by FAR the best worms game created, throughout the entire lifespan of the franchise. The essense of my childhood, this game still gives me an awesome feeling when I predict where a grenade will land perfectly. The 'roping' community has vastly expanded over time and it's gotten to the point where 50-100 people can be found actively playing this game every night! How's that for a long run?

Nothing more to say apart from the fact that this classic worms game is something that you do NOT want to miss.

The definitive Worms game that still, 15 years later beats all the competition. To this day no other Worms game has been able to reach this level of strategic versatility and creativity.

Seriously, this is the best game ever made. I am not lying!
Ive played it for about hundret hours in its steam version.
Some years ago Ive played for even more hours with the retail version. (I have plenty of them, always managed to lose the disc at some point heh) And when I was a kid Ive played Worms World Party when it was released for even even more. With my schoolmates Ive played the demo version on the same map over and over again for I-cant-even-remember-how-many-times. I bet Im scratching on the thousand hours now.
I dont think I could handle any real professional player online. There were some years of inactivity in between my sessions.
But being the best isnt really the point of the game. The point is to play with others and having a great time.
Its turn based, so its ideal for chilled evenings. When your turn is over you can chat with your enemys in the chat. The most enjoyable moments are these when something funny happens, when a whole dozen of worms are flying through the air or when a tricky shot succeed. Or failed and killed your own team instead the enemy.
Really, there are so many cool moments in this game you dont have in any other kind of games.
If you dont know anyone who plays with you, you can join the online servers. Depending of the daytimes you will find others to play with. If you fear this game will ever stop being popular online: Dont worry. The userbase was never really shrinking since its release. Of course playing with relatives is still way cooler than doing so with strangers.
And a few of the developer are still working on this game. They do fixes, keep it running on up-to-date computers and adding features. Still the game itself stays oldschool. I bet you wont find any game which are still getting that much attention from their devs.
If you get the concept of the game and like online matches with up to 5 other people from all over the world, this is your game. I think the single player of Worms World Party is better, but nothing tops the multiplayer of this timeless classic!

Finally decided to get this game on steam after playing it on Xbox. This game is hilarious and super fun to play multiplayer, but single-player can get a bit dull.

Want to play one of the best, most fun and addictive strategy games ever? Your old CD won't work on your modern PC? Well, then this Steam version of Worms Armageddon is for you! While Worms World Party outdoes it in terms of customization, Worms Armageddon is a tremendously fun game that is very much worth your time. You'll have loads of time creating and customizing teams, and completing missions or blasting opponent teams.

Good old classic Worms, this is brilliant!
2D worms is the best type personally, this one works well...

-Except, with Windows 10 it seems to flicker on 1080p?
If there's a fix I'd be grateful...
