“It can honestly lay claim to being the new definitive Worms game on PC”
8/10 – Strategy Informer

“a worthy entry in the series”
4/5 – Hardcore Gamer

“Worms Clan Wars is about as close to Armageddon as a Worms game has come since. In ways it is far superior, for instance the sleeker graphics, the clan-based multiplayer, and the absolutely endless customization possibilities”

Now with Steam Workshop

About This Game

Worms™ Clan Wars brings friends and families together in the noble pursuit of self‐improvement, world domination and exploding sheep.

Worms™ Clan Wars is the biggest and best Worms™ game to date - more worms, larger landscapes, more dynamic water, more weapons and more customisation items than ever before. Worms™ Clan Wars is designed to take full advantage of next gen PC hardware. It features beautiful high definition 3D visuals (but still retains the classic 2D gameplay) with new lighting effects, new features to help users interact socially, exciting additions to improve the single player experience, and more of everything a Worms fan could want.

Form Clans, Take On The World

Join together with friends and other Worms™ Clan Wars players to form a fearsome team; name your clan, design your own emblem, promote other players to act as leaders and officers. Enter your clan into the league and fight together to make your mark on the leaderboards. Nobody wants an empty trophy cabinet!

Keep in touch with friends and foes alike using WormNET, the game’s own lobby and chat system. Each clan has its own chat channel, and a number of other channels cater for a variety of hardcore gaming tastes! Jump online to hang out, chat, recruit new members or find games.

Stay connected with the game when on the road with a mobile companion application (web, iOS and Android). This is the best online multiplayer Worms™ ever!

Slick Single Player Gameplay Too

Story Mode’ adds a ton of variety by introducing physics based contraptions for the first time ever. A plethora of interesting machinery spices up the gameplay, and makes solo Worms™ much more fun! The single‐player game isn’t only about dealing death and destruction, it’s also about negotiating tricky swinging rope bridges and rescuing friendlies from death defying traps! The player spends much more time playing, and much less time waiting for their A.I. opponent to take a shot.

Get Busy With Steam Workshop

Definitely a step back in comparison for the older worms releases. Not only the controls, the mechanics became worse, but the mouse is also constantly lagging. Which makes this game a black sheep among the worms franchise.

The game looks visually atrocious with jagged edges around everything, I'm not normally the kind of person to complain about graphics, but the game just looks bad, even with anti-aliasing turned on, the game also runs at a terrible frame rate (generally hovering around 20fps) on a PC that easily meets the minimum required specs.

I am a huge fan of the Worms series but I unfortunately cannot recommend this game whatsoever due to the horrific visual problems this game has.

Sadly the game does not allow you to create your own AI teams. This is the entire reason I bought the game. I love to fight and watch fight many different AI teams I'd made like you could do in Worms Armageddon. I have no use for it other than this :(

I don't understand how this awesome franchise went as down for their two last games.

First of all Clan Wars & Revolution are the exact same games! A real copy and past, even for the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bugs!

One of my favorite tool was the rope cause you could do really funny things with it, now you get stuck all the time and die because of that...
Ho yes, now you have the water! Yeah.. The water... Well this feature is to-ta-lly useless...

The 3D graphics did make sense in worms 3D, but in here there is absolutely no point to use it..

The bots are completely useless! I don't know how many turn I have waited 45sec to see the AI doing nothing at all!

The games modes are seen and seen again and again. Nothing really new.
They could have create new vs games with this awesome feature (the water) but I think they realized how ♥♥♥♥♥♥ it was and did nothing with it...

Ho, and about the controls on a controller. Even this is totally wrong! The buttons mapping is totally TOTALLY NOT intuitive! I mean, jump with A? A?!! And fire with X? X?!!! That's the best way to mislead everyone!

The only good point is the story and the voice acting. It seams they spent all their money in it....


Anyway, I'm so disappointed with those games, I really miss the previous worms...
It a shame cause I really like this franchise, I have so many memories playing with friends. But recently it not fun anymore. It just kinda fun mixed with gameplay bugs & annoyance...

If you remember playing Worms years ago and thought that this is the new improved version with much better graphics and much more features you might be disappointed. It is rather fine but the weird multiplayer lobby makes it hard to get any opponents online unless you friend people who frequently play multiplayer matches.

The graphics are somewhat hideous, with blobs imitating water and 3d-ish models that lokk outdated.

The mechanics are so-so. The ninja rope is prone to blocking constantly, but other than that the combat is okay.

Would I recommend this game? Yes, it's a fun part of the Worms series. There's a ton of weapons to choose from and a lot of customisation. The single player/tutorial part is rather short, but the story part long and fairly challenging.

Is it what I was expecting of it? Not even close.

5/10

Fun multiplayer game, but Armageddon was better. The terrain is randomly generated, which helps with its replayability, but the environment styles are limited to only few options. Nevertheless, we still play it, so it gets my vote.

Most fun I've had with worms since Worms Armageddon. Steam workshop is definitely a big plus and the soundbanks sure make a hilarious match. All beloved weapons are included and even more! Only thing I would love to see are the Worms Armageddon style landscapes. Would definitely recommend to everyone!

This is good game, not good as Worms Armageddon and etc. You are likely to play around 20 hours, then its just boring.

Team17 had recently a lot of downtime of their servers for Worms Clan Wars.
It was very frustrating not being able to start a mutliplayer match even all players were ready.
A few days later, everything works again and online multiplayer fights are fully functional.
So in case this happens again: yes it sucks, but give it some time, try some days later again, it's worth it.

Worms Clan Wars is a classical Worms-Game from Team17 like the early versions back in the childhood.
Still the cool old weapons like holy hand grenade, the Grandma Fart or the concrete donkey - but also plenty of new weapons.
Its awesome to play it with friends - Consider buying a cheap 4-pack of the game. More friends having a copy of the game - more fun. I would recommend to wait buying it until a sale with a good discount offers this game, because the standard price is way too much.

All in all: Awesome game!

One of the best if not the best edition of Worms 2D game.
Playing w/ friends is so much fun. Varied and smooth gameplay like in previous Team17 productions
Workshop content gives u a lot of options to customize ur lil soldiers.
The new thing - Worm Classes are a huge innovation, its a big and cool change imo.
Servers r a bit laggy but nothing serious fortunately!

Overall 9/10

This game is basically a standalone expansion to Revolution. It's a much better game overall, and the workshop support is very cool, but you can't help but feel like a lot of this should have been in Revolution to begin with.

The problem with the game though, is that even though it's better than both Revolution and Reloaded, it's still a shadow of a game compared to Armageddon. Sure, it has the same number of weapons and even lets you use the Armageddon HUD for your weapons, but that's really the only areas where it matches that old classic, and even then it replaces fun weapons from that game (such as the bow) with newer weapons that, honestly, just aren't as fun.

The graphics are decent, but you will have stutter and FPS drops even on decent rigs when you play games with a lot of onscreen objects/worms. They've said for some time now they have been working on the FPS issues, but the fact I have not heard anything in a while combined with the fact that one update actually made my performance *worse*, doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. Also, the game does not have an FPS cap on background objects, but the foreground objects are all animated at 30FPS. It's incredibly awkward looking and makes it blatantly obvious the game was made using an engine designed for consoles, not exactly the grand "PC exclusive" we were promised.

Even looking past that, it's just painfully obvious that you cannot have a game like this in 2.5D if you play for even just a decent amount. You can't always tell just what it is you can actually stand on, not to mention if a chunk of landscape is small enough, you can't even see it at all (I even have proof of this in my screenshots for this game). We do not gain a single thing going to 3D graphics, we only lose precision and performance. Team 17, please stop trying to make Worms in 3D graphics. If you want to do that, make another 3D Worms (and make a decent 3D camera while you're at it), because it's not like 2D graphics is some kind of forbidden thing to have in a video game these days.

Admittedly, all the new weapons and tools do serve their purpose and can be useful at times (to be honest, this is the first time in a Worms game I actually *like* using the mortar), but they range from fun to boring. And frankly, one weapon isn't even new, the Bovine Blitz was already in Ultimate Mayhem, yet they act as if it is new (maybe to 2D Worms, but they should specify that instead of just saying it's new). And everyone who cried that the rope is overpowered in Armageddon? The water jetpack is far, far more unbalanced than the rope ever was (and the rope wasn't OP to begin with...but the aqua pack sure is). To be fair though, the winged monkey is a very useful tool for stopping darksiders, and it's amusing to block someone between two physics objects and then go blast them out ("Oh, are you stuck? Here, let me help you...heh heh heh").

As for the teleport gun being the compromise to the rope no longer allowing Armageddon levels of speed? It's not a compromise at all, it's incredibly easy to use and has no real skill ceiling to it. It's like whoever was in charge had no idea what it was about the rope that made it so fun to use. Had it been developed with the mindset that you need to do a lot of practice to master it, it could have been something really cool, but it's a big disappointment if you're an old roper. Team 17 needs to stop being so pigheaded about the rope and just revert it to the way it was before, because I just don't see how anyone could think the new rope or the teleport gun are more fun, even after having spent hours using both.

But let's say you can ignore all that, and are willing to play anyways. What's that you say? You want to play Hysteria? Not possible because you can't fine tune the turn timer in this. Bow and Arrow? Haha, sorry, there is no bow in this. Shopper? You'll get bored when you realize the limitations of the rope. Heck, you can't even really get crazy with something original, because...and this alone is *THE BIGGEST PROBLEM* with the game, and the series since Reloaded in my opinion...Team 17 keeps removing gameplay options with which to customize schemes. We don't exactly gain anything worthwhile in their place either. Frankly, the only reason this is better than Reloaded is because Reloaded's physics were just that bad, Reloaded has far more options than Clan Wars, and that game is only a few years old.

I don't recommend any of the newer Worms games at all. Not because I'm a die hard Armageddon fan (I actually preferred Hedgewars, back when it was more active), but because these games are cash grabs that have obvious signs of Team 17 just flat out being lazy, all while promising they are listening to the community and that this game will be "the best Worms yet".

Heck, they barely acknowledge the old Armageddon fans, and make it pretty obvious they are not listening to their input on these games. So...they want to build a game with an active community, yet all but shun the oldest fans unless they are willing to lavish praise on their half ♥♥♥♥♥ sequels? And yet they wonder why the series has been losing fans. They also tend to delete negative topics on their forums (even banning users for telling people how to get refunds on the Revolution board...myself included), and I wouldn't be surprised if this review gets flagged by them.

So why did I buy this? Because I'm still a fan of Worms. And it was cheap with a discount and trading card money. But Team 17's rotten attitude and laziness make it extremely hard to like the new games. I seriously doubt I'd ever buy any of their future games, Worms or not. Not until they stop being all talk and actually make a game designed for people who don't just play casually (as casuals are less likely to notice a lack of depth or laziness on the developer's part).

TL;DR version: Another half ♥♥♥♥♥ Worms game from Team 17. One I wanted to like but I just can't. Avoid unless you have to have every single Worms game ever, and even then, get it for at least 75% off, as $25 is nothing short of overpriced for this game, especially considering Armageddon is $15 on steam and will last you far longer.
