Game Review: Worms (PSN)

wormsWorms is now available on the PSN. Wanna know if it’s worth a buy? Keep reading to find out.

Before I tell you all about this recent addition to the PSN, let me first say that I had never before played a Worms game. I had to talk to BOMBJosh for a comparison. That being said, I’ll begin.

Worms is a turn-based strategy game with the basic goal of killing the other team. You are given a variety of bizarre weapons to do this such as the bazooka, sheep, and concrete donkey. Not only do you attack the other team with your weapons, you also blow apart the terrain. Whether you’re playing singleplayer or multiplayer, the worms are divided into 2-4 teams, each with 4 worms. When playing single player, the worms on the other team are comuter operated. Each worm gets a time-limited turn to attack or move.  Last team standing wins. Multiplayer for the game is a combination of online and local with support of up to 4 controllers locally.

JOSH’S COMPARISON

From the dawn of the Worms games I have been a fan. Some of them are good, some bad. The original is still my favorite, but the only reason for that is because the PS3 version does not have mouse and keyboard suport. If it did I would have to say that the new PS3 Worms is the new winner. As far as weapons and the levels go it is the same old Worms. Randomly generated levels keep the game interesting and fun with the weapon set. The create your own game style and create your own team is in this version, only thing I want from the PC (besides the mouse and keyboard) is my old Beavis and Butthead voice mod. 😉 

So there you have it. This game isn’t one that I really enjoyed. It’s more fun with actual people, but I’d still rather be playing something else. Josh, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed it. If you’re a fan of previous Worms renditions, go buy this. Go buy it now. If you’ve never played a Worms game or you’re not sure if you’d like it, I’d still say check it out. The game is really funny, and hey, you might end up loving it.
