Game Review ( Worms - 360 Arcade )

Graphics: 4.25/5 They're in HD, the game is really colorful, and it looks nice. Thing is though, there's only a few levels to play in ( 3 to be exact ) and you'll really only use a few different weapons over and over again.

Sound: 4/5 Same background musical score throughout the whole game. The worms say little words here and there, and you can even create your own team and choose the name of the team, name of the worms, and choose what language they speak.

Control: 4.25/5 Definitely takes time getting used to. The wind effects the direction of your bazooka shots, and it gets annoying, because the A.I. will get a dead on shot or near dead on shot 95% of the time, and it's sickening.

Fun: 4.5/5 Worms is an awesome game. Only 3 levels, but it's worth it. There are 20 challenges you can play through on single player, which get progressively tougher, and if you beat them all, you get an achievement. Also, the achievement list is great. There is also online multiplayer, so you can play on Xbox Live, which is pretty fun, too. For $10, some people may be skeptical, but this is a great game. Is it frustrating at times? Yes. Does it take patience? Yes. Is it for anyone? No. But this game is a lot of fun to play.


( Ideas for teams: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) , and Seinfeld )

Achievement Difficulty: 3/10

Some of the achievements may take awhile - mainly Gold Damage, which you have to get 20,000 total point damage, which is basically the equivalent of killing 2,000 100 health worms, which would take a VERY long time. Other than that, most of the achievements are managable. It's a great achievement list.
