Perhaps the main reason that this new version of Worms is so good, though, is because it sticks so closely to the traditional template for the best installments in the series. All of the weapons, abilities and utilities upon which we’ve come to rely on are back, joined by a host of new tools such as the boomerang and the electromagnet to help mix things up. Even when it isn’t following the standard blueprint, Team 17 still delivers - additions like Puzzle mode and multiplayer Rope Races prove that the ideas are still there.
This is the definitive handheld version of one of the world’s favourite multiplayer games. You can pass a PSP around, have a blast with local players or take the fight online. You’re hardly going to want to put it down. Welcome to the party.
