The Game Review
Worms W.M.D is a game which is based on a 2D environment. Although the graphics adapted are quite impressive, the gameplay is still featured in a single 2D map. It is also enriched with both single-player and multiplayer versions. Before the action begins, players are required to create and customize their own worm which they can play in both single-player and multiplayer modes.
Customization mostly just includes setting up a particular team and choosing different abilities for each member. Once customization is done, players can move on and select the game modes of their choice.
In the single-player version, players have the campaign mode where they are required to complete different sets of missions by performing numerous tasks. Most missions simply include taking down enemy worms and capturing different buildings. Apart from the campaign, players can also battle against the AI in an exhibition match.
The players have the option to choose the number of AI they play against and can even form teams with them. In the multiplayer mode, players simply battle it out together against different weapons. Players have the option to team up or against their friends in a one to one match or can alternatively play with 6 other teams consisting of eight worms each.
Worms W.M.D has been added a lot of extra features that weren’t present in the previous editions. One of the notable features includes how players, within the game, can craft their own weapons using different available resources. In total, there are over 80 weapons available for players to choose from. There are different categories of weapons such as rifles, pistols, shotguns, and even throwable bombs. Moreover, weapons are also dropped from the sky in the form of airdrops.
These weapons may include a flamethrower, machine gun, and sniper. In addition to that, a new feature has also been added which involves players entering into vehicles such as tanks and helicopters. In both online and single player mode, players can enter any vehicle that is available on the map.
Overall, Worms W.M.D is a very addicting game for anyone who has a keen interest in playing strategy-based games. The graphics have vastly improved compared to its previous versions and with the addition of new features such as vehicles, increased weapons, and larger maps, players have the opportunity to enjoy a completely new way of approaching it.
Apart from that, the game has also held on to some of its classic features such as the traditional guns including a flamethrower, pistol, and hand-grenades. The game is fun, entertaining, and can get very intense if you’re playing against friends.
