Worms joining the world of 2.5D

Fable339 | May 19, 2013 | Review of Worms: Revolution

So to begin, Worms Revolution brought new features into the turn based strategy game by introducing water and physics based effects which could literally turn the tides of battle. The game still retained its humor and narrative but felt like a much more polished game. The 3D visuals added much character to proceedings and the general ease of play made for a welcoming game for newcomers. Simply put, Revolution is the culmination of years of hard work from a dedicated team and plays extremely well. If there’s to be any criticism at all and that’s possibly due to impatience, is the general speed of the game which still crawls at a snail’s pace as players take turns. The AI can also be a little too advantaged at times, although sometimes succumbing to making silly mistakes and suicidal moves. The controls for aiming is still a little fiddly, and for beginners hit and miss at times, which might cause some frustrations especially as the AI has the potential of perfect aim.

There are still plenty of options for gamers including the campaign, puzzles, fort battles, deathmatch and classic modes of play as well as the chance to locally duke it out on custom maps or over the online airwaves. The inclusion of the Mars, Medieval and Funfair packs simply add much more to the game including new maps, puzzles, themes and worm customization options which are always good for a giggle.

Worms The Revolution is a fun and entertaining game for players of many ages and comes from a classic series that’s been around the block several times now. If you’re after a game that’s cute and offensive, then this is well worth checking out.
