Worms: Open Warfare is a portable edition of the long-running strategy game from Team17, allowing players to command war with those wily worms anywhere they go.
In Worms: Open Warfare, players command an army of worms into battle against others, and try to take them out by employing an array of lethal and quirky weaponry. The game features traditional weapons, such as grenades, pistols and rocket launchers, as well as non-traditional arms and gadgets including a sheep launcher and teleporter.
Each worm has health points, and by successfully using weapons, players can take out the individual worm threat by whittling down their heath.
When they finally die, these worms aren't pushovers, and if an innocent worm gets in the way of a defeated worm, they could potentially take damage from the impending explosion when another worm pulls a suicide bomber and blows itself into a better place.
Music and Graphics
The music is cute and doesn't disrupt the gameplay but the graphics make the worms look more like pink blobs with eyes than a worm.
The voices are high pitched and can be annoying but some of the battle cries are very funny.
The single player missions are difficult but the game shines in it's multiplayer. Single-card download play makes this game perfect for trips or just playing with friends. The guns, grenades, and exploding sheep will keep you entertained for hours.
I liked Worms: Open Warfare but unless you have a few DS's in the same room, the game is sub-par. If you enjoy the previous Team 17 games however, the worms are back and ready to rock!
