Kids say (3 ):

Whether you're a longtime fan of the series or new to this world, you'll no doubt have fun exchanging blows against enemy factions in the most ridiculous ways. We're talking about warring worms, for goodness' sake. As in the game's predecessors, you have a limited amount of time to move to a specific area on the map, choose the right weapon, aim at a rival worm, and fire. You'll see how you fare and hear a funny catchphrase, and then it's your opponent's turn -- whether it's the game's artificial intelligence (AI), the friend beside you, or a competitor online.

This time around, however, you have access to weapons -- from mechs to tanks to helicopters -- which changes the strategy somewhat. There's also the ability to craft weapons and utilities for the first time when your opponent is taking his turn on the battlefield. Create something new, wacky, and deadly with in-game ingredients. You can also swap out your weapon if, say, you need a ranged attack instead of a melee one or vice versa. Also new is the ability to enter buildings and fire off projectiles while inside -- but only for that round. Except for the lack of a formal map editor to make and share your own levels (which was available in some past games), there's a ton to like about this silly turn-based Worms sequel.
