I have purchased all the worms games in the series and out of all of them I really just didn't like the 3D aspect of the game. It seems more unappealing especially because it takes away from the game's origins and I find that doing this just partially destroys the game series Worms itself. The gameplay, animations, and weapons are all good. Graphically for me, as a long time player and fan of the Worms franchise, I found it strange and unappealing and that's not beneficial to the worms franchise to go 3D. For these reasons, I gave the game this rating. If you would like to see or try Worms in 3D, be my guest, but this game just isn't for me.
Worms Ultimate Mayhem is the evolution of the franchise from 2D to 3D. The game is not as good as it was Worms Armageddon or Worms World Party, but still being a good game. In this release developers strove to offer a better story in the campaign and other game modes (like siege, fortress, etc...). I recommend this game for those who want more worms experience in other game types. But do not expect so much fun as the first games.
The most thing I like in this one is how they tried to move 2D Worms on next stage. That was a time when 3D games were better and better, so I guess Team 17 tried to make their own game in 3D world. How did it go? In my opinion, not bad. Sure, Worms in 2D are god-like, and it's hard to beat something so great. Sadly, Worms in 3D didn't managed to do that, just look at new Worms games - all of them are 2D. So about Worms Ultimate Mayhem, it's a nice experience. You have much more freedom, exploring worms arenas are fun in 3D, using your favorite weapons from past games are also so much fun. Destroying the map, making your own maps or castles, are nice to spent time in. Playing with friends is also enjoyable, if you are playing for pure fun. I can't imagine playing this in serious matches, but that's my opinion. If you are curious how Worms would work in 3D, there is your answer. It's not a bad game, and it sure is kind of different from other Worms games.
If you enjoy all the other worms games, than this isn't much different. If your new to the series than i can't recommend you starting with this game. I personally love this game but i know many people who prefer the 2-D games to it.
This game has very good visuals, animations, and sound. The gameplay is, well, worms! Explosions, sheep, exploding sheep... Tons of fun to play with friends as you try to dominate their army of worms on an excellent 3D battlefield. Lots of weapons, landscapes, and everything else you've come to expect from worms. It's easy to play, and fun too. The only problem is it's a little easier and slightly less competitive than its 2D predecessors. Many of the old tricks don't work and it's a little easy to score kills. Thankfully, all new gameplay modifiers are thrown in to make the game just a little more hectic. Faster movement, larger explosions, and super melee are just a few of the changes you can make to form your own custom worms experience. A good buy for sure!
