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.

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...

Worms has been around for years and still has new releases, yet this game remains on top. There are two primary gameplay modes: Campaign and Deathmatch.

The campaign is comprised of different levels that teach you the gameplay mechanics and give you different goals to reach with a given set of weapons. It starts out explaining how aiming, power, and wind effect different weapon such as grenades and the bazooka. You quickly learn how different weapons react to different environments. The game then puts you in situations where you have to get from point A to point B while only using specific utilities. There are many levels that will only be completed through trial and error--and that is one of the best parts of the game--it doesn't hold your hand. You learn how everything works through experimentation. You learn for example, that a girder can be used for protection as well as to traverse the maps.

Death Match is a simple 1 on 1 where each player takes turns controlling an individual worm trying to eliminate the other team. It starts out simple, giving you the obvious advantage in team size and poor ai aiming, while slowing ramping up the difficulty with each match. By the end, you have a smaller team size and the ai has impeccable aim. The last match will likely take many tries. But, when you do win, you will feel like you truly earned it.

All Worms games follow the same mold, but what makes this one truly stand out is the customization. You choose the name of every worm on your team as well as their gravestone and voice from a huge list of options. When you want to face off with a friend or the ai, the game gives an astounding amount of options that are sadly lacking from more recent titles. You can choose which weapons and utilities you want available (there is a lot to choose from!), how much ammo they have, when they can be used, etc. You can choose how often health/weapons/utilities drop. You have control over worm life and sudden death options. You can essentially change anything you would possibly want. Don't like the random stages the game gives you? You can create your own stages as well!

One of the things that makes Worms Armageddon so great is that you can play multiplayer locally as well as online. Sure, you can see all of your opponent's crate pickups during local play, but nothing beats being able to see their face when you land that amazing grenade toss to win the game.

Although newer titles may look nicer in the graphics department, this game still reigns supreme in terms of content and customizability. This game was amazing in 1999, and it still holds up today in 2015.

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.

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!

It doesn't have hats like the newer games, but the charming art-style means the old graphics have aged really well and mechanically it easilly the most well balanced game in the Worms series.
