I don't think I've ever played a game more irreverent and wacky in its humor and design while also keeping to one of the most accurate and precise physics engines I've seen in a while.

Worms Reloaded is actually an updated rerelease of Worms 2: Armageddon (Do not confuse this with Worms: Armageddon. They're actually two totally different games) released in 2009 and while it's one of the older titles in the Worms franchise, it is definintely the one with the most features, gameplay modes, options, and overall fun out of the games I've played.

Up to four teams each control a squad of four worms with customizable names, voices, and hats (in fact the Steam version has TF2-themed hats just for this occasion) and an arsenal of weapons ranging from rocket launchers, grenades, flamethrowers, and air strikes to ninja ropes, teleporters, and magnets to a variety of exploding wildlife and grandmas to the mighty meteorific field-wide death of Armageddon. These worms will use said weapons to blow the living hell out of each other in a manner befitting old-school Looney Toons designed by Michael Bay. Each worm only has a finite amount of time to make a move, inch across the battlefield, use whatever weapon or item they wish and end their turn. A surprsing amount of things can get done during this time, but moves must be planned very carefully as just about any situation can be used against you somehow if your opponent is creative enough.

The controls on the weapons are all fairly simplistic but at the same time surprisingly complicated. The physics engine is very in depth taking into account, angle, power put behind the shot or throw, wind power and direction, and the presence of any obstacles. The precision in which things can be done is fairly impressive and a competent player can do things that might not even seem possible. It is worthy to note while keyboard controls are present, a controller is generally recommended for this game due to how strange buttons are mapped originally, but this can be changed. Gravity effects everything BUT the terrain you're standing on. The randomly generated maps and backgrounds will stay put no matter how many pieces are blown apart until you're either sitting in a crater, traverssing tunnels, or recreating Bastion. However, even a remaining pixel can be the difference between a hit or a miss in some cases so keeping track of what was destroyed how can sometimes work to your advantage but freak accidents can always happen.

One thing that's consistent throughout any worms game, especially in multiplayer, is that no matter how good one side is compared to the other, random chain reactions and other assorted problems can show up as a result of anything happening. A grenade could be thrown and throw an enemy worm into a mine, which detonates a nearby gas canister that lights an area on fire that eats through the ground and frees up a hole for someone else to fall into- right onto a health crate that fell down previously. But by no means is this a luck-based game. Freak happenings aside, the mechanics, complex physics, and sheer creativity allowed in the vast arsenal of weapons and tools requires quick reflexes, careful planning, and a good knowledge of how the game works and mastering these can take quite a bit of practice.

While this game is best played with friends, the single-player campaign is long and full of missions ranging from puzzles to challenges, to simply difficult missions and the AI at later levels is surprsingly advanced given how complex the rest of the game is. Unfortunately, the campaign isn't really worth playing more than once as each mission has a special 'trick' to it that can render it fairly easy in the hands of a skilled player. The actual multiplayer is where most of the action is. Randomly generated landscapes of a variety of colors, themes and backgrounds from ancient Egypt to Hell to outer space never makes for the same game twice and customizable maps and game modes allow for more exacting factors to be controlled ahead of time should you wish it. Due to the antics of how the game works, I recommend you play with actual friends either in person (It's worth noting that local multiplayer only needs a single controller) or online, but online multiplayer is also a perfectly viable option. Fair warning to those who care, however: There is no word censor in this game and enemy team or word names you come across online can be inappropriate.

Overall this is a fantastic multiplayer game that, if plugged into a large monitor, projector, or TV can make a fantastic couch party game that doesn't rely heavily on the RNG, but has just enough chance to allow laughs at a chain of explosions due to a misplaced land mine. There's enough customization to keep games from getting boring or samey and custom teams are always fun to deal with and it's very easy to personify the little guys and give each of your team a distinct personality or strategy type in your head. The single-player allows for a lot of time invested and makes for good practice and a rewarding experience by itself. Still, only get this game if you plan on playing it with friends.

A modern update of a timeless classic. Quite good by oneself, but much better with a group of friends clustered round one computer, blasting each other apart in the time-honoured hotseat style.

Good old Worms. Worms Reloaded is the perfect game for everyone who loved Wormes Armageddon. The Weapon Arsenal is pretty big and you will find everything you want. From the basic Bazooka to the Holy Grenade and the awesome Banana-Bomb. If you don't know Worms, just know that this game is one of the best local-Multiplayer-Games out there. The Campaign is ok and packs some challenges, but you basically buy this game for all the joy and frustration you will cause you and your buddys. The Presentation is nice, funny and timeless, but i can't emphasize this enough: Play it with your Friends, they'll love/hate you for it^^

In order to forget the war in the real world,
you should go with three other friends for a little exploring
in the world of the worms.
Between joy and pain, maybe you will hate your friend, but
even if you lose, will you have a lot of fun playing this game. DEFINITELY!

Forget about the 3D Worms Games,
this is best Worms game that I ever played! [imo]

7/10

Pros:
- Can play up to 4 players on the same computer/laptop.
- Has alot of content, most of which is customizable.
- Fun simple gameplay.
- Is a 'real' release (Little or no bugs). ++

Cons:
- Requires unlocking of content used in multiplayer, either through gameplay or microtransactions. --
- Clicking through the menu's can be a little tiresome sometimes
- Using custom audio from outside of the game is a pain/not user friendly.

This game would rate higher if not for one thing: The locked content/microtransactions. On an older game like this one, it should be removed.

I really enjoy this game, you get to kill all of the worms, or be traitorous to your fellow worms, in general this game is just a load of fun for family and friends, and dosen't require an amazing gaming computer to run it, either, which is good.
I DEFINITELY RECCOMEND THIS GAME IF YOU ENJOY MAKING FRIENDS HATE YOU JUST THAT LITTLE BIT MORE!

Armageddon may still be the best, but this is a very good sequel to one of the best turn-based skill/action/strategy games ever. The gameplay is highly tunable and the potential trickshots and movement skills mean there are some serious hardcore worm players out there, as well as hacks like me. but it's fun for everyone, and runs great on lower hardware specs. i think it's worth far more than it's currently on sale for.

A bunch of friends over a variety of platforms (Windows, Mac OSX and Linux) bought this game to play online multiplayer but it is not cross platform multiplayer. No mention was made of this ANYWHERE in the description. We can't even get Linux vs Linux multiplayer to work.

A total waste of money. Worms Armageddon was way better anyway.

I love the Worms franchise. They are party games that perfectly mix skill and luck, and do it with such flair that even if you're coming dead last, you never really stop having fun with all the crazy weapons and situations that arise.


Worms - Reloaded is I believe the "newest" iteration of this franchise, and I have to say that it isn't really the best... at least in terms of actually being a fun party game to play with friends.

Lets go back a decade or so to the playstation one, the good old PSX. Worms World Party had just been released, and it was the most fun I could ask for on a disk-based entertainment system. Sure, the previous iteration "Worms Armageddon" had a fantastic campaign, awesome music, HILARIOUS cutscenes, but as a party game it immediately loses out because A NEW GAME HAS NOTHING UNLOCKED! No weapons, no cool teams, nothing. Just the most basic weapons and voice packs. World Party has everything unlocked from the very beginning, and that made it perfect. He stuck that mother in at a party and went to town on each other's worms.

This is not a reason to hate on a game. Some people enjoy there being some challenge and unlockables to collect so you have a reason to play. Smash brothers brawl did this and was a huge hit... would the game have been better if everything was unlocked from the very beginning? Well... I think it would have, but it isn't my place to say.

Worms reloaded is the exact same game you played ten years ago. It is exactly the same. Same graphics, same voice packs, same weapons (with a few new ones). We opened this game up to play at a LAN a few days ago, and were immediately disappointed to see that the concrete donkey, the holy hand grenade and the banana bomb were all disabled. Guitar hero learned after it's third iteration that players want everything available at the start, as gamers we no longer valued achievement over fun, we wanted to be able to put in a game and do everything that game allowed us to do. People still say guitar hero 3 was the apex before the series' downfall, thanks to it catering to the 'casuals' of the world. I disagree completely. Like it or not, casual gaming is here, and in many ways, it is better. Worms Reloaded is a brilliant casual party game, but it is nostalgia blind, catering to the completionists and achievement hunters of the world, which takes away from it, somewhat... but once again, that comes down to personal interpretation.

I still reccommend this game, but if you're at a LAN and someone can emulate old playstation one games... World Party is still better.

The best time killer that's out there at the moment. Worms Reloaded might not be a 3D game with the sickest graphics you could imagine, but let's be honest, it doesn't need to be. The gameplay is addictive and can be adapted to your own liking. You can customize your characters' look, name and even the way they sound. There's multiple game modes to choose from, so being bored won't be an option.

The only negative thing about Worms Reloaded is the fact that its community isn't active anymore. You'll still find people playing it online, you'll just need alot of patience for your lobby to get filled. I can highly recommend gifting this game to your friends - so you can have some fun together - on those dull nights where boredom struck again.
