Product Description

Product Description

Do you ever wonder what all of those worms squirming around subterranean tunnels are scheming? We do, too. As it turns out, according to Worms Armageddon, our wacky segmented friends have a stockpile of crazy weapons and are waging a war big enough to turn the world into a heaping compost pile. Who knew?

Worms Armageddon brings the humorously addictive gameplay of the very popular Worms series to the PlayStation for the first time. The strategy-based gameplay is as unique as the premise. Commanding a team of worms, players wriggle and shoot through 30 missions and 14 training levels. Players take turns moving a worm warrior into position and then firing at the opposing team, using an arsenal of weapons ranging from mines and kamikaze attacks to the more traditional exploding sheep attack and banana bombs. Naturally, the commander who best combines strategic moves with creative attacks wins the worm war.

Join the throngs of fans of this unique game series and you'll never look at a grinning, gun-toting earthworm in the same way again. --Eric Twelker

Review

Do you ever wonder what worms do in their free time? The third chapter of the popular Worms series, Worms Armageddon, has you believe that instead of just hiding under rocks and floating down storm drains, worms are actually ruthless militant creatures with boyish British accents that constantly fight each other. This simple, somewhat innocent premise sets the stage for an excellent turn-based strategy game, as Worms Armageddon is not only the best Worms game, it's also an incredible multiplayer experience. The concept is pretty simple: You control a team of well-armed worms, and your objective is to kill the other worms any way you can. You do this on a 2D plane that's usually a series of odd platforms and objects precariously placed over deadly water. (Worms can't swim.) The combat itself takes place in a series of timed turn-based rounds that seamlessly flow into each other. Each of your worms shares a collective arsenal from which you can choose all sorts of weapons - from the devastatingly serious to the laughably wacky. From there, you switch to a manual aiming and firing scheme used to unleash your weapon of choice at the worm you're targeting. This leads to all sorts of havoc, as combat tends to lend itself to poorly aimed explosives and the fun effects they cause. The worms and everything around them have a distinctly animated look to them. Big eyes and oddly shaped household items show the comic-strip influence of the graphics, and combined with the simple 2D layout, it makes Worms Armageddon something of a throwback to the old school. The detail is simple but effective, and it helps support the humorous themes running through the game's elements. Switching to more offbeat weapons will generally change your character's appearance - a worm will don a headband before administering a dragon-punch, and a worm armed with a battle-ax is also outfitted with a Viking helmet. Explosions and animations are simple - worms shuffle along when you're moving them, and explosives blow up within a pretty obvious radius. Still, more detail to some animations, such as the shotgun fire, could have provided Worms with a bit more graphical prowess and, in turn, could have helped sort out exactly where the blast hit (or missed). Apparently, all worms come from Europe somewhere and have a definite lack of testosterone in their voices. Squeaky, high-pitched speech fills the game with colorful comments from your worm army as you play. If a live grenade is tossed next to you, your worm will scream, "Run for it." If it completely misses, your worm will ask, "What was that?" This effect is only mildly cute and strictly tiptoes the fine line of being annoying. Other sound effects - such as explosions, bouncing grenades, and submachine gun fire - are done well and lend a bit of realism to an otherwise unrealistic experience. Mild, almost unnoticeable music plays in the background and helps you focus on the task at hand. The only particularly bad thing about the audio is the German beer commercial-like Euro-dance that pulses over the title screen. Still, a few button presses, and this is all but forgotten. It's the weapons in this game that make it really fun. Every combat game may have grenades and shotguns, but not a whole lot of them have pneumatic drills, ninja ropes, supersheep, and sticks of dynamite. This huge assortment of instruments used to deal out the pain keeps things fairly fresh and funny, as each weapon has its own silly effect. Still, there are some weapons that are just too powerful, and once you've mastered them, they have a countereffect on the gameplay. On top of that, instead of switching off between worms, the turn system switches off between teams - meaning a team with a single worm will get four turns before four worm on one team goes once. This makes it unduly difficult to kill the last worm on a team, as he easily gets a tactical advantage with his multiple turns. It's terribly frustrating to be killed before you can even get a shot off. Multiplayer is where this game is at. You can go at it with up to three friends, and you don't even need a multitap. The turned-based combat makes controller-passing feasible, and a generous time limit lets even the most thorough planners establish exactly what they want to do before they make their move. The easy-to-pick-up gameplay makes this a great party game, and the ensuing hilarity from the calamity that is bound to happen makes this a game everyone can laugh at. Unfortunately, the single-player game just isn't as good. The computer still has eagle-eye accuracy, and down to its last worm it is capable of factoring in wind, trajectory, and ricochet, so you can place that one deadly bazooka shell halfway across a level, through a series of ledges, and right on top of your worm. This makes it all the more frustrating to play against the computer, as it seems to almost cheat. Still, the AI is capable of doing some pretty lame things itself, such as bouncing a grenade back to its sender or shooting the floor out from under itself. But the AI definitely favors certain weapons - the bazooka, grenades, shotgun, and mines are all high on the AI's list of weapons of choice, while the dragon punch, the battle-ax, or the Uzi are almost never wielded by the computer-controlled worms. Also, the computer tends to take an extremely long time plotting exactly how it's going to attack your troops, and, as such, you spend a lot of the single-player game just waiting for a worm to make its move. Worms Armageddon is designed so you can play with other people, and the single-player match is really no substitute. If you've got plenty of friends who spend their time lounging around your place, definitely pick this one up for some rewarding gameplay and good laughs. Although the game has its weak points, the solid gameplay and simple control make this game a must-have for anyone who likes to play games with other humans.--Ben Stahl--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc.

Okay, I have never played this game before on N64 or PC, so I'm a "virgin" Worms player. With this in mind, this game rocks, especially when up against another human player. There is nothing quite like using a well aimed exploding sheep to blast your best mate's last worm into the drink, where it sinks like stone (because, as everyone knows, worms can't swim). The single player missions are not quite as good, but especially the further you get the more challenging they become. However, the often dead-eye accuracy of the AI shooting a bazooka into a howling gale and sconing your worm dead on the noggin tends to get a bit frustrating, especially when you try the same thing and blast yourself to oblivion. All in all, though, a great game, especially with company.

OK, I have a number of playstation games and nothing compares to this. The day I bought Worms I spent 8 hours playing and only got up for a bowl of cereal. I've never done that with another video game - ever!
This is the most addictive, strategic, and entertaining Playstation game I've played. However, I have to admit that the first two hours were very frustrating for me. There is a steep learning curve in getting some of the weapons down and understanding what to use in given situations.
Anyway..........I can't think of another Playstation game where you money would be this well spent.
Every game is so different......it just doesn't get boring.

I am not going to claim to be a fan of turn-based strategy games, or for that matter, real-time strategy games either. They've never appealed to me. But one day I read a review of this game in Electronic Gaming Monthly, and I got curious. A good friend of mine had recently purchased it on PC, and after playing it at his house I quicklsy saw what the folks at EGM were so excited about.
This game is just brilliant. It's a turn-based strategy game in which two, three or four teams of worms wage a war on eachother on an unlimited supply of randomly generated terrain, and annihilate eachother using a wide array of clever and unique weapons. The gameplay doesn't get much funnier than in this game.
The only reason I took a star off is that I feel this game loses some of it's appeal if you don't play it with at least one friend.

Here's the scenario: The worms of the world have taken up arms and are intent on obliterating armies of opposing worms-your job? Be the tactical commander who succesfully leads his team of worms to total domination using uzis, hand grenades, bazookas, the occasional farmland animal, and angry video game producers who just couldn't handle the pressure... So why buy? Easy- how else could you show your military genius and enjoy stomping your friends into fishfood all while hearing the teams cry hilarious comments at each other like: "Revenge!" or, "You'll pay for that!" and my favorite, "What was that?!?" From 1-4 players and the ability to save teams and stats, everyone can join in good clean fun without the usual violence problems associated with human based games...

I have been a big fan of the Worms games for years; it is fun, entertaining, and in every way a fantastic game. We just got the Playstation version, thinking that it would be faster than our computer, and it is just HORRIBLE. The game play is basically the same with some bad changes: you can only have 4 worms per team (with the PC version you get up to 8) and you have to choose a sound scheme per game, not per team. The graphics are a major step down from the PC version: several key animations (like the fire explosions from oil cans, the clouds and stuff in the background) are just not there, and the graphics that are there are just pathetic. The graphical quality is so poor that it's almost funny. So by all means get the PC version -in fact, I can't reccomend it enough- but save your money and don't get the Playstation version, because it's just terrible. I am very, very disappointed.

I would have given this one star, but if you don't own a PC, Dreamcast, or N64 and have never played a Worms game before, then this would be a lot of fun.

The worst part is choosing weapons. On the PC, choosing your weapon is a two-second process. On the PlayStation it takes between 10 and 20 seconds, because the pointer moves so erratically. Time is carnage.

Almost as frustrating is back flipping. That can be a 20-second process, too. On the PC, you press the button twice to back flip. On this game, it can take try after try.

Moving the view of the screen, finely adjusting your angle, and selecting the exact position for overhead weapons can take a long time as well.

All of these things are very annoying. However, if you have never played this game before you won't know what you're missing, and it will be a lot of fun.
