"It's rare that a videogame can remain just as relevant today as it did at the turn of the decade, but precisely because of the stylised graphics, simplistic physics and endless customisation options, Worms remains evergreen to this day." - StrategyInformer.com
"This is the biggest, prettiest Worms, yet. Strategy fans will find one of the most fun multiplayer games around, and there is plenty to do on your own, as well." - IGN.com

Worms Reloaded Is a 2D Turn-based, Side Scroller, Multiplayer Warfare game with tons of Weapons and variety of maps and customizations, There is no actual story, The gameplay is addictive and fun like the past worms games, The background graphics are nice, recommended for all worms fans.
That's not necessarily a terrible thing. Worms is still unique and it feels fresh amidst a sea of copy and paste money-grabs. That being said, if you've played Worms before, it will be simply he same thing yet again. In such a long franchise, some innovation would be nice. however, this seeks simply to deliver what they know fans like.
I can't really compare this game to the 'classics' since I have limited experience with worms. However I can comment on what I do know, this is a fun game :) It goes back to the 'basic' 2D style of the earlier worms games and looks great, with many weapons you'll recognise (and no doubt some you won't). Both new comers and old timers should be happy with this game, having lots of classic content, using the same voices you'll recognise but with plenty of new stuff, such as missions, game modes and a nice landscape creation tool to keep things fresh. Playing on your own is pretty fun but it's playing with friends where this game shines, getting a couple of friends on Mumble/Teamspeak/Skype and blasting each other to pieces in worm form is just good fun :D I picked it up on sale and would recommend you do the same, ideally as a 4 pack so you and your friends can instantly start playing together :)
This is a really fun game, and very representative of the standard Worms series. I love the franchise a lot, and if you've never played it before, it might be a good idea to test out any game from the series you can get your hands on since they follow a pretty standard model. It's an absolute blast to play with friends, so you should try to get a friend to get a copy with you so you can play multiplayer together. I love this game a lot and would recommend this game to pretty much anyone, but I will say I know a few people who aren't as excited as me about it, so it might be an acquired taste. Definitely give it a try, the price is right and it has amazing replayability.
The classic Worms are back! After they experimented Worms in 3D (which weren't very pleasing), they came back with a full 2D, but amazingly made Worms game! This game is amazing. The single-player campaign is fun and challenging at the same time. The co-op is decent. I really enjoy playing 'pass the pad' local multiplayer with my brother. Though it feels a bit short, it's an amazing game. The graphics are ground-breaking and make the game stand out of any regular arcade-ish game. The level editor is awesome and allows you to make as many as infinite combinations of landscapes as you'd like, you have full freedom. They are really varied and you'll never feel bored. The strange game modes are amazing and make the game a fun play. The missing LAN play is disappointing as this game was an amazing LAN series (I used to love playing Worms 2 on different PCs with my brother), but, nevertheless, the local multiplayer covers it up, and you have online connectivity always. And, the classic but modern gameplay is fantastic. This game is a great game to buy even today. If you like the Worms series, you'll like this game. Not so perfect game, but a great game to play.
