Worms W.M.D Review

September 12th, 2016 by

wmdboxYay! Worms! WOOOOOOORMS…

Ok so maybe I had to force that a little. After 24 outings and 6 spin offs since worms first appeared on the Amiga, CD32 gameboy and Mac in 1995, did we need another one? Did we?

Well… maybe.

Worms WMD has had a bit of an overhaul you see.  Customisable worms squads, new weapons and indeed some WMD’s in the form of a tank a helicopter and a mother chuffing MECH! Don’t call it a comeback,  they’ve been here for years, poking their peers, using uzi’s and sheep.  (sorry, my inner LL Cool J came out)

The game looks fresh. If you were a newcomer you’d be ok in thinking this was something new and different,  with weapon tutorials, a crisp lick o’ updated graphics and a seemingly slicker weapon system (though maybe it’s just been a while!)

It is, at its heart, a worms game, and Team17 have stayed true to what makes it tick,  timed strategic attacks,  ridiculous or odd weapons and some very cute, very silly soundbites. It plays…  like a worms game, with the aforementioned vehicular upgrades and some rather tasty turrets of both the machine gun and the rocket launching varieties. There’s not a lot of difference in playing WMD,  or playing worms 2 or 3 etc. As I mentioned earlier the weapon selection IS slicker,  a little faster, and thanks to upgraded graphics, a little easier to see what you’re selecting…  that’s. About.  It.

It’s shiny faster worms with more things that go bang, and so my opinion falls to whether I’ve been a fan or not.  And I have. I always find a little bit of joy in worms games, my inner sniggering 13 year old self always has a blast.  And couch Co-op Leads leaves you watching through your fingers after the latest silly move you’ve done ends up costing you the game. Add to that online multiplier (because I never tire of ‘your mum’ jokes from people whose mum has paid for the online subscription…  and who I climbed off just before the game), and you have a load of fun for not a lot of coin!

Midlife Gamer Rating: 7/10     Format: PlayStation 4     Release Date: Out Now
