The Worms 2 Armageddon – Game Review
The Worms series is most probably one of the most funny gaming experiences that you can have on a PC, and you will certainly enjoy playing a skirmish against your friends or even against the AI. Recently, the series has been ported to the iOS and Android, so you can now join the battle on mobile devices.
Worms 2 Armageddon is the latest entry in the mobile Worms games and it comes packed full of amazing, cool features that you will certainly enjoy.
First of all, the game comes with 30 different singleplayer missions that take place in various locations. We liked the fact that you do need to strategize quite a lot as you play them, and a lot of depth is required sometimes in order to get to the next mission. Alongside that, we were amazed that there’s actually a body count mode in which you can take on endless waves of worms, pretty much like in a survival fashion, which is really nice.
Moreover, the weapons in the title are quite interesting and there even are some new ones for the mobile world. Fans of the series will certainly enjoy the return of the pneumatic drill, super sheep, napalm strike, electromagnet, sentry gun and so on.
On top of that, the hotseat multiplayer works quite well, especially if you get the opportunity to play the game on a tablet. You can complete your turn and hand the device to your friend once you finish moving and attacking.
You can opt for one of the 12 different games styles that provide you with a unique game experience. As expected, there’s a lot of content here and tons of customization options. Moreover, you can even access achievements and leaderboards which we do find as being a good addition to the game.
Wi-Fi multiplayer is also available and from our experience it works really nice. If you need more practice, you can go to the practice mode which, surprisingly, is included within the game.
From a graphical standpoint Worms 2 Armageddon looks very good. The game looks really nice, it’s very appealing and the worms look as good as you might expect. Animations are fluid, the game worlds have the amazing intricate design that we always enjoyed and overall everything combines into a great visual package.
A special mention has to go to the worm voices which are masterfully created. The soundtrack is funny, as expected and overall everything combines in a professional, enjoyable package.
Overall, we found Worms 2 Armageddon to be one of the best multiplayer oriented games you can find on mobile devices nowadays. The game is really cheap to begin with, but the fact that it comes with such a huge amount of content and it’s so polished definitely makes the purchase well worth it. If you want to have a good time with your friends while playing some games then you can’t find a better game than this.
