About This Game

Worms™: Ultimate Mayhem is the definitive 3D "Worms™" game! Load your weapons and experience a whole new dimension in destructive turn-based cartoon action! Taking the game into 3D creates all-new strategic and gameplay possibilities. With over 70 single-player missions and challenges, online and local multi-player for up to 4 players, 5 multi-player modes, Steam Achievements, unprecedented customization of both worms and weapons, and fully destructible environments, it’s bursting with anarchic mayhem. Battle and puzzle your way through all of the missions from both "Worms™ 3D" and "Worms™ 4: Mayhem" - it’s essentially two games in one. With the addition of HD visuals, gameplay enhancements and new extra content, it is the ultimate 3D "Worms™" collection!

Key Features

  • A vast array of single-player content spanning the very best of the 3D "Worms™" games, ranging from shooting challenges to speed runs, whilst a collection of crazy missions, interspersed with newly fully voiced narrative FMV sequences, make up the single-player campaign. Additionally, a huge number of challenges ask the player to master the individual skills of the game (such as piloting a Jetpack or steering a Parachute) in order to complete tasks such as target shooting or collecting targets, all against the clock.
  • Full online play for up to 4 players over a wealth of game modes such as "Statue Defend", "Homelands" or just plain "Deathmatch", plus the ability to create your own custom game settings to play against your friends! Because of the turn-based nature of the game, it can be played multi-player offline on one screen.
  • Fight on the randomly generated landscapes, even save and share them, which allows for a huge amount of multi-player map options!
  • Play standard or ranked games in a bid to scale the Steam Leaderboards!
  • Players are able to name their teams, choose which hats they want their worms to wear, whether they wear glasses, have moustaches, what they say, which flag represents them, and even what gravestone they leave behind when they die.
  • Many of the classic Worms™ weapons are present and correct, with the Holy Hand Grenade, Bazooka, Dynamite, Banana Bomb, Baseball Bat, Super Sheep and many more in your arsenal of destruction.
  • There is also a sprinkling of even more crazy and surreal weapons too, such as Alien Abduction, Fatkins Strike, Flood, Inflatable Scouser, Old Woman, Starburst and Bovine Blitz with which to wage war on your enemies.
  • Players are also able to construct their own weapons from a wide selection of components. These weapons are added to the players’ arsenals and remain secret until deployed, giving opponents a nasty shock.
  • In-game voice-chat so you can cheer on team mates or indeed win the battle against opponents verbally!
  • Deform everything in real-time.
  • This tracks every action a player makes when attacking, whilst at the same time allowing the player to retreat and not miss a single moment of the glorious action.
  • New camera enhancements make it easier to follow the action; optimized AI means more intelligent enemies, and the addition of speech and lip-synching to the single-player missions makes for even more cinematic fun!
  • New visual improvements, with dynamic real time lighting and post process effects and shaders, make the mayhem look even more impressive.

-My friend killed me by poking me
-I took revenge by hitting him with an uppercut Yelling SHOYRUKEN as loud as possible
-he then proceeded to launch a fat kid towards me
-I then took Holy Hand Gernade and said "You Need Jesus." then killed two of his guys
-he took all his dignity and hurrled himself towards me with a firework and we both died.

gotta love worms.

For people who can't find humor in this review here's a short "serious" checklist.
NOTE: I have none of the DLC

-great online games with friends.
-3D Worms is good.
-Weapons are fun
-So many references can be made to almost every weapon
-"FOR THE LOLS" - My friend
-customiization is fun

Can be taken either way
-Glitchy, at times, but its the funny kind of glitchy-ness
-customization is diverse, but on the other hand, feels restrained

-you might lose a friend or two, if you're lucky, only for a month
-Control set up is kind of hard to manage and change, ESPECIALLY camera movemnent

This is an amazing game! It gives a refreshing change to the stale 2D Worms games. Even though it is 3 years old it feels like it could be brand new! If you have 17$ I would extremly suggest getting the deluxe edition since it adds some nice additions to an already great game. 10/10

Join the Hype once more! We're talking about a Worms game that belongs in Team17 Studios' 3D series, which I personally love! (Oh boy! I can't forget how many hours I've spent with Worms 4: Mayhem). The game's mechanics are pretty simple, meaning that you can Move/Scope/Shoot easily. The use of a Joypad is highly reccomended since it makes it a lot easier for you to play this specific game. Well, the game's Single Player storyline is smooth and very funny, but what is more exciting and fun to play is its Multiplayer! Moreover you have the option to customize and to create your own Weapons and of course the Worm's Outfits and Style, which I find really good and interesting if I may say. Furthermore the game's goal is simple and that is what makes it "easy" as I mentioned before. Obliterate the enemy team!.To sum up its a valid game to play if you want to relax and have some fun, especially if you have your friends with. Finally I have to mention that there are many 2D Worms releases that are also good and viable (For Example: Worms: Reloaded).

I give this game 8/10

This game is pretty awesome. Not as good as Armageddon or reloaded, but really fun nonetheless. I strongly recommend a 360 controller for playing; it makes it much easier. The create a weapon system is also cool.

Good amount of weapons
Fun environments
Brilliant gameplay

Keyboard control can be bad

For the record my favorite Worms game of all time is Worms Armageddon. The art style, the game play, weapons, level editor, and game layout (options, theme, layout of menus) were all done right. This is when games were made to be bought once, and to be bought as a whole.

I saw Worms Ultimate Mayhem as a recommended game instead of Armageddon. The first thing that caught my eye was that this game was the 3D version of what I loved so much. I figured for the on sale price, I'll give it a shot. I can tell you that I am not at all disappointed with my purchase (except that Worms is still a turn based game! I wish they would make a real time one - how? Well I'm not getting paid to make or suggest games). Seeing worms in 3D is phenomenal, and the art and them style they chose to go along with the game just fits it perfectly. The game play is just as good as ever, however will take some time to adjust and get used to the new range/power system. I didn't know a worm could throw a grenade three football fields away from the map. Lesson learned.

Game play itself can be seen from first person or third person worm view. Weapons are varied as usual and are cool to use and shoot. The explosive or corrosive materials found around the map can also be used to eliminate your opponent. Does the 3D land disappear after you blow it up? Damn right it does. How are the camera angles? Actually quite consistent when using weapons, can be a bit confusing or frustrating when simply observing the map. I find that even with unchecking the inverse box for camera angles sometimes it turns itself back on. This is usually fixed by simply squaring the screen with the worm again. That's essentially the only complaint I have is the camera controls.

This game does have CONTROLLER SUPPORT - which is greatly appreciated.

This deserves an 8.1/10 as worms in 3D with the game play and art style they chose, I'd have to give it a .1 over than my solid 8 average. It is a fun game - and can keep you busy for a while with the story, challenges, or just a quick match.

(I did get this game on sale :)

Worms Ultimate Mayhem isn't the best Worms game to date but brings that great sense of humor and over the top weapons that we've grown so fond of. There are some issues with the camera and the game progress can be slow at times. Ultimate Mayhem has a lot to offer but the real Worms fans will stick to the 2D games.

I think this is the worms game that i am spending the most time online with my friend logan! We have a blast on his custom game type and i suggest you get this game instead of 4 mayhem or well mabaye 3D i think as a combination of the 2 i think it makes a slight better experience than 4 mayhem and worms 3D. The single player is the same as the 2 games espically 4 mayhem but for 4 mayhem's story and cutscenes they added voices and i think they're funny and cute XD! the multiplayer is good at best but u cant use wormpot online...uh WTF?! that would've been an amazing choice to make lots of different things to do online! and u can save random landscapes...thats nice but i still would justs probally pick one of the other landscapes. Anyways this game is awesome for a 3D game lots of armageddon fans will be like WHATS WITH THE PHYSICS?! OMG THIS SUKS SO BAD I LOVE ARMEGDDON ENFEGABA. well i dont care u armageddon fans go back and play ur competive style this.. is fun. anyways i give this game a 9/10 its very good but not perfect. and i highly recommened it!

If the 3D branch of the Worms series didn't irk you, then you will find this really is the ultimate edition. It has the Worms 3D campaign as well as a new one, and tons of other new features. My Xbox One controller is working quite well, although the game didnt tell me what buttons did what. You do need a mouse or keyboard to skip the launcher.

It's definitely a charming game. I really think it could have benefitted from a little cel-shading but otherwise, it runs great, and the destructable environments make things very dynamic. Of course, most fans feel like the move to 3D made the game too unreliable to play and I tend to agree, but I'm still enjoying it. It's just a very different game. You'll find arching lobbed grenades way harder, but direct line of sight attacks are much easier to hit. And it also gives you an indicator for when melee attacks will make contact, so you won't goof them up.

Good game here. I'll keep returning to it, but it wont replace the 2D Worms experience. It's a supplement.

Unlike most of the previous 2D Worms games, Worms Ultimate Mayhem features a 3D, turn-based artillery strategy that allows player to move freely rather from left and right. In the game lobby, players are able to choose from a wide variety of different weapons and use them when the game starts. At the start of the game each player is able to control four worms, due to the game turned-base nature, each player control one worm at a time with a set time limit; when the time limit expires or when the worm fires a weapon, the player's turn will end and the opponent will start his turn. The objective of the game is to eliminate all of the enemy team worms. There are two ways that a worm can be eliminated. The simplest way is to deplete the worm of its health, that can be done by choosing a weapon, aiming it at the enemy worm, and firing at the opposing team worm. The second way is to knock the worm out of the platform; some weapons provide the ability to push or knock back the opposing worm. Once a worm is eliminated, it cannot be brought back to life and once all four of a player's worms are eliminated the game will end. The team with worms left standing is the winner.

This is taken from a comment I wrote on YouTube a while ago, I'm posting it here as my review. Edited it a little, also.

I have the game on the PlayStation 3 too (don't ask why I have it for both the PC and PlayStation 3). To be honest, I prefer Worms 4: Mayhem (I only have it for the PC, pirated copy from 2005/2006). It has better game-play (it's better for battling, Roping, navigating, etc. and don't ask why, hard to explain it), better tweaks (Is it even possible to tweak Worms: Ultimate Mayhem? I have the PC version of the game and I don't know how to tweak it. There are no ".xml" files.), better music (this is my opinion, the Worms: Ultimate Mayhem music is great too, they're remixes of the old Worms 4: Mayhem tracks, but it really sucks that they took out the old Worms 4: Mayhem Sudden Death theme, they could have made a remix of that), better online play (They removed the Wormpot for online games in Worms: Ultimate Mayhem! How could they do this to us?! And you can't actually pick your own team in Worms: Ultimate Mayhem for online play, it picks one of your teams automatically, and it doesn't display the name of the team at the beginning of your turn, it simply shows your player name instead.), better HUD... They even removed the Icarus Potion Cheat in Worms: Ultimate Mayhem! I have 12 Worms games, including Worms Armageddon (the so-called "best game in the series", yes, it may be the best 2D game), and Worms 4: Mayhem was always my favorite, and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem is a very close second (and Worms 3D is third, but not that close). Yes, the new HD graphics for Worms: Ultimate Mayhem are nice, so are the new sound effects and the new "Credits" screen (it has humorous cut-scenes), and I like the Binoculars (although I was hoping for all Worms 3D weapons mixed with the Worms 4: Mayhem weapons), the new online features are also nice (such as "Ranked Match", but I still prefer the Worms 4: Mayhem online system), and they also added all the Worms 3D maps as well, along with the Worms 3D Campaign, which is very important. But, to be honest, I don't think they'll ever make a game that could top good old Worms 4: Mayhem.

As for Worms: Ultimate Mayhem, the PC and PlayStation 3 versions are equally as good. For the PC version, you could change the controls for your keyboard and controller too, which is very important. In the PlayStation 3 version, you can't change the controls for your controller, you can only choose three default sets for all controls on the controller ("Goofy", "Classic", and "Mayhem"). But for the PlayStation 3 version, there's a larger limit to the amount of characters for weapon and Game Style names, which is also very important. It also has a sufficient amount of characters for team names. For the PC version, it only has a large enough character limit for team names, not weapon or Game Style names. So, as I said, they're both equally as good.

But in general, I'd highly recommend this game. It's one of the best I've ever played.
