In case you live under a rock, like a certain critter, worms is series of turn based artillery games, where the objective is to eliminate the other team, with various wacky weapons. You can do that by hurting them until their health drops to zero, or push them into water, making them fish food. It's a simple, but fun mechanic, that i enjoyed for decades, and counting. I hardly ever play with other people anymore, who are in the same state as me, let alone the same room. But when i do, the best choice is always one of the worms games! Clan wars is a step up from revolution. The core gameplay is the same pretty much, but here, you have a lot more options, and setting up the game is way easier.
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.
