And Worms 4? Yeah, the 3D games were actually quite good. It's Sonic that should start making only 2D games, not Worms. I know this sounds really, really bad, but they should totally make another 3D game. They were better in my opinion.

3d wasn't anything compared to world party. Haven't you guys ever played a roper, shopper, w2w or anything? That's the funnest part of worms, flying around with your ninja rope.

Yes, I have. I own Worms: Open Warfare 1 (crap) and 2 (pretty good), and I've been thinking about getting World Party for my good old Dreamcast. But Worms 3D left me playing constantly for well over 2 months. Worms: Open Warfare 2 left me playing constantly for like a month. I occasionally play it time and time again, but the fact that no one is ever playing it online kind of makes me abandon it. Of course, no one ever plays Worms 3D online either, but I don't have to go online in THAT GAME to be entertained.

First time I ever played worms was world party on my cousin's ps1. We had so many hours of fun together, it was one of the best times I ever had with him. I've never played worms 3d, worms 4, or forts, but I believe that 2d is where worms belongs, but that's just what I'm used to. By the way my Nintendo power says no online for space oddity, but gamespot says it will have online. Anyone know the truth?

"Revenge!" "Hallelujah!" Ah yes, the great Worms. I hope this game is as insanely great as World Party was. Banana bombs are awesome, end of discussion.

So we don't get to only play as the worms. Looks interesting.

Gamespot is lying, benny. They've always been behind on details on a game, or making up crap. They said that the original Sonic Rush had a Chao Garden, getting many people false hope. Turns out they somehow got it confused with Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. I doubt it, it was probably just a jerk on their website, but anyway, this game won't have online play. The best place to confirm it is on Team 17's forums, and it does indeed say that there is no online play, giving a phony excuse not to put it in, rather than just admitting "Well, it's close to the release date, and we really don't have time". That's exactly what happened to Sonic Shuffle. But, Sonic Shuffle made a decent game (I know many will disagree with me, but I still play it with my sister from time to time), so why not this Worms game?

I was really surprised when I saw this game at the "Superstore" (Canadian grocery store with an electronics section) yesterday. I thought it wasn't coming out until the summer. I'm a big fan of the series since "Worms: Armageddon" on the PC. After checking out some other stores (that didn't have it), I returned to the Superstore and bought it. Anyways, here are my thoughts (after playing one level). The Bad: I don't like the menus very much. They are too small and hard to read. For example, when I was customizing my team the image for the currently selected gravestone was too small and I couldn't tell what it looked like until I actually started playing the game (and I have a 42 inch tv). The number of weapons have been stripped down to the bare minimum. No ninja rope, no banana bomb, etc. All the weapons have been renamed. When you fail a mission there is no retry button. You have to go through all the menus again to retry. The instructions on how to use a weapon are very, very poor. It took me a long time to figure out how to use them. Once I had the weapons figured out I found the first level way too easy. I have not been able to figure out how to move the camera. I can zoom in and zoom out but I don't know how to move the camera to the left or the right. The Good: The weapons take full advantage of the Wii controller. They are fun to use, once you figure them out! Still has that fun wormy gameplay. Conclusion: People who have never played Worms before should like this game (if they can get past the menus). People who have played Worms before will like the game as a novelty. Not nearly as good as the old PC versions but I liked it better than the PSP versions.

I just got this game. It feels like they took 3 huge steps backwards from Worms: Forts for Xbox. It's 2-D (which is fine) but the character animations aren't nearly as nice. There are FAR fewer weapons. There are no buildings to build. No jetpacks. That said, it's still a cool game. I'm excited to have it for the Wii.
