The Worms franchise has had a strong presence during my formative years as a child. It all started with this one game. I'll admit that the graphics are quite dated, and the newer games have features that are beyond this title, but all the core gameplay elements are already present in this one, which to me is a sign that from the very start, they got things about right.
This is a nice slice of the past that people should definitely get a taste of.

They are pink, wriggly and very, very dangerous. Since the beggining of Worms series this game had one objective - total war. No matter if you have played new Worms games, it still same fun playing - with friends, or with computer player. Sure, it's not fun to play with AI, but since this one don't have multiplayer option and finding some friend in real life that love good old Worms would be hard, it's the only way to enjoy this game. Getting this game for the purpose of seeing how much Worms developed is also good idea. I mean, it's all remained same but was polished over the years. It's a hard work to make something good even better, and I think Team 17 is the best when it comes to that. I'm also glad that game that old make it one Steam - there are many players that just love classics, and having everything in one place is comfortable. Playing original Worms after so many years is just amazing.
Oh my, this game brings back the memories!AkiMatti | May 7, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
This game became a classic real quick. Playing this with friends on a hotseat mode was the best. The best times were when the attempts of destruction failed horribly, either by ninja roping to a mine or some other fluke of the player's doing.
There were also adult themed maps for this available from users and of course I tried them. I was a teen, what else was I supposed to do?
The animation clips were pretty fun, too. Somehow, this game seems to have more character than its sequels. Maybe its just the pixels and the retro boom.

The start of a great franchise and in fact a revitalisation of a genre, Worms was a uniquely fun game at its time allowing you to play hot seat and yet still maintaining the flow of action. The graphics is not the most exquisite by now but it was one of the first games that used randomly generated maps so at least there is plenty of variety. It might not be a great game to play alone but if you have a few friends who would also enjoy blasting each other with weapons of mass destruction the game will ensure potentially an unlimited time of fun.

What do you get when you cross annelids with weapons? Madness, you say? Yeah, just about.
The point in worms is to have two teams of four worms aside, and you can employ any number of weapons and gadgets to cross terrain and blow your enemy to tiny bits, all in turn-based combat. What you don't have in your inventory initially you can collect from weapon crates that will drop in random places on the map during play. But it isn't just other worms you have to watch out for – there are also other dangers, like mines. Oh, and worms can't swim – at least not in this game.
The team (or what’s left of it) still standing (or should that be crawling?) wins the round. You can play against the computer (skirmish mode or campaign) or your friends, and there are many options for customisation, with the player being able to select the team’s language, names of the worms on the team, right down to the type of tombstone they will have when they die.
Graphically the game leaves some to be desired – but this is mainly in terms of the worms themselves. The battlegrounds and backgrounds are rather well detailed even today, and rather varied. You will never tire of randomly generating terrain in skirmish mode. The sound is the best bit as worms will utter the most hilarious things in battle, with sayings often coming directly from classic series like Monty Python and The Simpsons.
It's just incredible fun, and for the price at the moment, it's a no-brainer, really.
