What could go wrong? Nothing as far as I can tell from this gem of a game. There are so many different goodies, and situations, that you can actually replay many rounds and still not get bored.
Graphics are not your high-demand bling bling style, but they are enough to be clean, smooth and enjoyable. The sounds are hilarious at times, and well "OH NO!"
Fun game solo or with a friend or few. Worth it.

I love this game + It works under Mac OSX Lion

OK, I'm prejudiced here: I have loved Worms ever since the original came out on the Amiga over 15 years ago. It's a funny, violent turn based "war-game" starring worms with really big guns. The new hi-def graphics are crisp and clear, sounds are varied and the teams are fully customizable with voices, hats, outfits individual worm and team names and even tombstones allowing you to tweak to your liking. You can even create your own maps. A credit based unlock system gives a reason to keep playing and you can even play multi-player hotseat: This game is a hit at parties. My only serious gripe is the lack of internet multi-play. I really miss this from the old Worms World Party. That said, for a lousy $10 this game is great fun!

Its an ok game
by Vincent BOIREAU, China - Sep 20th 2011
I ha not played Worms in ages and it is good to have it again for a game once in a while. That said, its nothing revolutionary, Worms is good as it gets ... nothing outrageously fancy but enough for some fun alone or with friends ... a sure value.
