Team17 had recently a lot of downtime of their servers for Worms Clan Wars. It was very frustrating not being able to start a multiplayer match even all players were ready. A few days later, everything works again and online multiplayer fights are fully functional. So in case this happens again: yes it sucks, but give it some time, try some days later again, it's worth it. Worms Clan Wars is a classical Worms-Game from Team17 like the early versions back in the childhood. Still the cool old weapons like holy hand grenade, the Grandma Fart or the concrete donkey - but also plenty of new weapons. Its awesome to play it with friends - Consider buying a cheap 4-pack of the game. More friends having a copy of the game - more fun. I would recommend to wait buying it until a sale with a good discount offers this game, because the standard price is way too much. All in all: Awesome game!
Worms Clan Wars is a quality entry in the long-running Worms series. Improving on several aspects introduced in Worms Revolution, such as improved water physics and the newer abilities for the four different classes, as well as not having to play a single-player campaign with a distracting narrator to unlock more worms for the non-soldier classes, the game provides loads of fun (and funny moments) that many can enjoy together (especially in local multiplayer) with a heaping dose of cartoon violence. The Steam Workshop support is a nice bonus, adding lots of user-created landscapes, soundbanks, and worm decorations to add some variety. It's not perfect, though; there are occasional frame rate drops, the environments are not quite as interesting as Revolution's, and while the game is fully-compatible with controllers (including XInput), there is no way to change the key prompts to reflect controller use, so new players might have trouble playing if everyone uses a controller instead of sharing a keyboard like the game apparently wants everyone to use. Still though, Worms Clan Wars makes for a great strategy game to play with friends.
Worms, the game that never really gets old and still going strong. Keeping old mechanics in place as well as adding new, fairly seamless additions to the series. The gameplay is as solid as ever and they did a great job mixing 3D with 2D as well has having some fun animated backgrounds. Simple game that is hard to master but a lot of fun getting there. Even without friends for local co-op, PVP, online multi-player it is a still great experience. One of the better games in the series especially with Steam workshop support and lots of customization for your worms team.
This game is amazing to play with multiple friends, be it local or online. The weapon variety is good and the single player missions/story is alright. but this game truly shines when you play with buddy's. There will be betrayal excitement, explosions, and the sweet sweet feeling of annihilating an opponents worm after he pleads to you to aim your bazooka elsewhere.... ah the good times. now this game isn't a huge improvement over revolution but it's still tons of fun.
Worms Clan Wars is Worms. If you played a Worms game before you already know exactly what to expect. If you haven't played one before you can expect a hilarious turn based action game to play with friends, or alone, but mostly with friends. Worms Clan Wars boasts a more feature filled game than it's predecessors. This comes in part of it being PC exclusive, unlike Revolution which was on consoles. A clan system for multiplayer is added for players who like competition. And perhaps the coolest addition is the Steam Workshop integration, now you can use modded hats, voices, and more in multiplayer. My Worms wear Jotaro's hat from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and speak using sound clips of Jesse from Breaking Bad. Worms Clan Wars gives you a ton of stuff to mess around with, for sure. But for the more casual gamer, it might not be a worthy upgrade from Worms Revolution. However Worms Clan Wars is not at all expensive, and if you're new to the series it's a perfect place to start. I don't just recommend Worms Clan Wars, I recommend you buy it, plug your PC into the TV, and get a controller. Then invite some friends over, bring beer, and spend the night laughing like maniacs. Worms Clan Wars is an excellent party game. It's an insane amount of fun if you suck, and if you're good there is a robust multiplayer mode waiting for you to conquer.
