Worms WMD (what does that even mean?) is the Worms we've waited and asked so long for. After the explosive success of Worms Armageddon (released in, astonishingly, 1999), Team 17 came up with a lot of ideas. Pretty much all of them included the Worms series, and this is no surprise given this is their only hit. We then got Worms Golf, Worms Pinball, Worms Crazy Golf, Worms Blast and even a Facebook game (called Worms). But of course spin offs don't make a franchise, so we also got new proper sequels. Unfortunately, none of them managed to hold the flag as high as Armageddon once did. They we're not bad games, though, and I think they receive a lot of undeserved hate, but their lower quality compared to Armageddon is unquestionable. Now, 17 years later, we finally got what we wanted: Armageddon 2. Worms WMD brings enough new to the table that it doesn't feel like a straight up copy paste. However, it brings back all the good things we missed for so long. Worms WMD is a must have for any Worms fan, new or old school. Gather some friends and have the Worms time of your life, and be sure all those good feelings of playing Armageddon will come back.
Definitely a good attempt to bring us back the joy of Armageddon, with some twists. After a number of games developed by Team 17 which tried to innovate or modify some core aspects of the game... this one falls short on that department, putting the bet all on the good ol' style with nice additions such as crafting and vehicles, which work just fine. It's target audience is indeed the one formed by seasoned players of the series which will find here the much loved classic game we all love and miss. In the end, by the way, there's not much more than we could expect: traditional story mode (which is not so long), classic versus mode and maybe so not so much effort put into variaty towards the replayability aspect, that again will indoubtly see you having fun with your friends over some couch and cold beer, laughing and killing each other's teams. If you have your expectations set straight, it's just another good installment in the series, that I personally prefer a hundred times over the low peak reached with Revolution and a step-forward in respect of Reloaded, which I also liked when it come out despite all the flaws it had.
