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.
