Review :

Covert Ops Commander log: Taking a tour of the ship I noticed that the security personel is not well trained and combat ready, in fact I could kill them with a well placed spoon blow. So I decided to inform commander Johnny that I will be installing a battle simulator in the guards' quarters to educate his men about the art of war, deception and weapon improvising. I picked Worms Reloaded for this job, a new version of a very old war game filled with humor and bloodlust.

For those of you not familiar with the Worms series, they are games in which the players control a team of worms that talk and can use many different weapons to destroy other teams. In this version of the game the graphics were brought back to the original 2D style but with cool animations this time.
There are plenty of weapons in the game some of which are very funny and some others are very deadly. Also there is a vast collection of gloves, hats, beards and other things that lets you make a unique style for your team. Most of it is locked though but as the game progresses it gets unlocked. In addition, there are many many maps and the players can easily create more, randomly or custom made.
The Hotseat game mode is excelent as it was in all other worms games, especially the versus modes in which each player gets his/her team and they have a dirty fight untill only one team remains standing. Cooperative is also fun to play but I really prefered the versus ;)
Finally I have to say that this time the game has a plot for single player campaign, it is not a super intresting story but it is a bit fun, it isn't boring and it is better than nothing.

Thats the game I recommend for playing when you have friends over to your place and if you get bored of kicking their soft places you can always change to Magicka to play some cool cooperative.
