I played Worms 3D non stop on my PS2 when I first got it. I liked that game.

So, $50 disc on the Wii, $10 downloadable on everything else?

I imagine there's a direct correlation between having worms and having gun butt.

Posted by blacklab

Been watching for 10 minutes and still cannot determine the goal of this game. What is worm trying to do?

liero is superior

Posted by Vexxan

Man, does this game look boring.

Edited by Zaxex

God, Worms is always incredibly boring.

It takes so long to do anything and the music and dialogue aren't very interesting.

I try to like Worms, but damn.

I Lol'ed at Shoryuken!

Total Gash

I kind of wish the worms sounded like the dwarf from Myth: The Fallen Lords. High pitched but not sped up.

Posted by BenderUnit22

This idea simply doesn't work in 3D. It was garbage when they first tried it years ago and still is now.

Why do so many Wii games have terrible fonts on purpose?

You mean Hogs of War? and yes.

I loved Hogs of War! Rik Mayall was great in it, well certainly when you were 10.

I have such fond memories for Worms 1 and Worms 2 on the PC.

This, on the other hand, is cringe-worthy at best.

If they made a modern military shooter with no worms in it at all and no team-based death match, I wouldn't care, but I also wouldn't expect them to call it a Worms game.

Yeah, this does look pretty rough. I would stick with Worms: Armageddon.

Which is the way to go if the voices are an issue, since you can put in voices yourself. Remember I had a pretty good Johnny Bravo one. Oh, Mama!

Posted by Benjamimmy

This is EXACTLY the same game as Worms 4: Mayhem. In fact, it's just a re-release, except downloadable. The only difference is, it now has voice acting during the cutscenes, whereas before, the worms would just talk in "Me,me,me" language. Originally, this was released after Worms 3D and Worms Forts: Under Siege on the PS2 and Xbox.

Not trying to defend the game or anything, it really doesn't look very good, but must they always be SO bad at figuring basic gameplay stuff?
 
I mean there's a perfectly functioning minimap on the upper left portion of the screen yet he haves a real hard time finding enemy worms... and it's right there on his face.

This looks like the worst project; I'm so sorry for all the hard-working programmers and designers who spent the time to realize this clearly flawed game concept. The most confusing perspective is not the camera's, but of the management who lead a development team to create this mess.

Posted by Deathinmusic

I can't believe how bad Ryan is at this game. I loved the original Worms 2 on PC, what a wonderful game. Worms in 3D just doesn't work though, it's pretty terrible.

That worm said SHORYUKEN! WTH

Tey have alwats said that since they added fire punch as a weapon I think. Definitely say it in both the other XBLA games.

Posted by PrivateIronTFU

No more 3D Worms games. Come on. They can do better than this.

Posted by Bevinsky

I'd like to point out two things: this is an exact copy of Worms 4 Mayhem, and that voice acting was definitely not there in the original version.

Worms 4 Mayhem was also a much better game than Worms 3D. Doesn't really mean much, though.

Posted by BeachThunder

This franchise has so much potential :(

Posted by Pop

I played worms 3D it was poop, wow Jeff doesn't like the voices, hope he at least likes the weapons :D. I was thinking that I would totally play a FPS worms game, like really serious worms FPS but they have to have these voices :D. Totally make that!!

Posted by B_Heart

Worms 3D should not exist. It does look very boring. I'd stick with any 2D worms game over this

Posted by vexidus

Yeah this looks pretty painful, they should have used the same engine and made the game with a 2D side-scrolling perspective.

Posted by gbrading

I used to play the demo version of Worms original in MS-DOS. Those were the days...

Posted by StarErik

"'Come on then!' Now pitch that up a few octaves, ship it." <3

Edited by ryanwho

They should probably make the next one an FPS since that's the only way to modernize a tactical game according to Ryan.

Posted by AndrewB

Oh Team 17. You peaked with Worms 2. Possibly Armageddon (but Armageddon lacked the crazy customization options of 2).

This doesn't look as as bad as I'd imagined, but the AI is crippled. It didn't know how to move two inches to pick up a crate drop on another level (if that's a difficulty level thing then it's just stupid). Then on the other spectrum, it can either make a dead-on bank shot or completely flob things up (admittedly a problem with past Worms games as well).

Posted by smiddy

Can't believe they're still making Worms games.

Can't believe they're exactly the same.

Posted by Largo6661

worms needs to go back to 2d.

Posted by Sunjammer

Yeah, another Ryan-hosted QL where the first quarter is nothing but looking at menus. ENTERTAINMENT AND INFORMATION. INFOTAINMENT.

Posted by Evenstar

I played worms once and it was not very fun.

No, this is the first (well third) person remake of an old favorite (even though I liked scorched earth better). This is exactly what people are worried with games like X-Com etc. It can be done well, this wasn't. If they would have kept the side view they would have a playable game.

Posted by Talis12

this just proves some games need to stay 2d

Never played a Worms game. I will continue not playing Worms games.

Your loss, bro.

Posted by christ0phe

This looks like pure shit

Edited by spinoir

This is actually a really good game......cant understand why people are complaining abt it though, takes a while to get used to the controls but its easy and fun enough, if you actually put a little effort in.

Posted by tourgen

man I remember playing Worms and worm-like-games as a kid and really getting a kick out of them with friends.

This 3D version just makes me sad though. Is there no way to make Worms work today? Does it really need to be 3D? Is there something else they can do to "modernize"?

In 3D like that it just looks like a really bad turn-based death match game. Which is super weird and terrible.

maybe if the camera snapped orthogonal to a plane containing the shooter and the target, and rendered a section-view or used some alpha transparency. kind of making it 2D when you activate a weapon, but allow you to roam around in 3D.

Posted by kollay

A worm just said "shoryuken".

That's cool.

yeah i played the fuck out of pigs of war

it even had a good campaign

Posted by ComradeKhan

Had a bad case of "gun-butt"

Posted by HarlequinRiot

@tourge They've been making normal Worms games in the modern age, about one every year actually. It still works and is fun, but it really is the same game. And Worms 3D has been around for a while now, the first one came out eight years ago.

Posted by Box3ru13

I completely enjoy the voices, they are silly, stupid, and funny. This on the other hand looks not great. Shame because I really love the 2-d ones.

Some of my most played games are worms on PS3 and 2 on 360.

They mention it, but then dismiss it pretty quickly as still unhelpful.
