Worms Reloaded OUT !

Post by Dzani on Sat Aug 28, 2010 12:32 am

Worms Reloaded is released . You can check the trailer here



Yup, it is a 2D game.

Here is a review from pcgamer




Amazingly enough, Worms: Reloaded is Worms. Do you like Worms? Itís Worms! You donít like Worms? Move along, itís just Worms. They may be higher resolution than they were back in the 90s, the backgrounds a little more interesting, and the weapons more explosive, but at heart this is exactly the same turn-based war of bazooka-wielding annelids we saw in 1995, 1998, and every other Worms game ever, ignoring the seriesí brief jump into 3D back in 2003. Itís also much the same game as last yearís Worms 2: Armageddon over in Xbox 360 land, albeit with a few more toys thrown in.



And you thought your neighbours were a pain.
Most games would struggle to keep going so long without radical changes, but Worms constantly manages to get away with it. As Worms 3D proved, it isnít a template that benefits from too much messing around, and it never takes long to get hooked into the fun of blowing away enemies with a perfectly arced bazooka shell, or roping onto a cliff and giving an enemyís last worm a humiliating poke into the nearest ocean. Reloadedís new features build on that rather than reinventing it, offering new features like vertical maps, fighting atop open-air forts, and a dull Ninja Rope race mode.

Hardcore purists will chafe at specific balancing changes, notably the feel and physics of the Ninja Rope and only getting four worms per team. For everyone else, the biggest shift is the addition of more defensive weapons: Sentry Guns to help lock down parts of the map, and Electromagnets that deflect incoming attacks. These turn Worms into a slightly more tactical game, but somewhat spoil the purity of simply trading shots. If you like them, or the other, sillier new weapons, hurrah. If not, at least you can switch them off in the comprehensive but oddly clunky ruleset editor.

Forsooth, sir, thou hast been owned!
Any changes to the single-player game are less interesting, mostly because single-player Worms is as pointless as Strip Solitaire in a nudist colony. You get escalating deathmatches, a campaign that does a reasonable job of breaking up the action with puzzle maps and interestingly asymmetric teams, a one-worm army survival mode, and plenty of other options, but none of them are much fun thanks to the ridiculously bipolar AI. One minute itís pulling off mathematically impossible trickshots, the next itís shooting up the scenery or committing suicide-by-mine. At best, itís dull as paste.



Multiplayer is firmly where itís at though, and aside from a few mid-game syncing issues, a ridiculously oversized UI and some issues finding public games in the server browser that will hopefully have been patched this side of soon (check the official forums for updates), Worms remains as great as ever. Itís a simple, beautiful game, and while you may wince at paying for it yet again, Reloaded is a great version that will have fans and new players alike falling back under the spell of the spineless ones.

I have only seen trailers of WR, never played it, not even a demo. I might play a demo sometime. But for buying, if I ever do buy it, it will probably be in a few years from now.

I played beta, it's like earlier Wii versions of 2D game. Nothing special really, better graphics , weapons and new explosions, moving background and similar.
3D should mark the future, not 2D I believe.
