Earthworm Jim hands-on

The invertebrate space-hero squirms back into the limelight

Of course, Jim is well-equipped to deal with all this stuff. As always, he can yank his wormy body out of the suit and whip it in any direction. This is useful for killing things, of course, but it's even better for snagging random hooks and swinging across chasms like Indiana Jones. And although he wasn't able to use it until a few seconds into the level, Jim can bust out his trusty, rapid-fire machine pistol to blast crows and over-amorous junkyard dogs into mucilage.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
