    These kind of games are just what the Wii is made for IMHO, just simple and fun games to play, ideal for gaming parties.

    Is this the same one that released recently on PSN? Either way, it's kind of a hard sell on Wii, simply because of the lack of online traffic on the system. Still, I totally support Team17 and will continue to buy Worms games. I do hope, however, we see another 3D Worms game in the future. The 2D stuff is Worms perfection, but I thought the GCN game had a lot of charm. It was a completely different dynamic.

    I have Worms Space Oddity or whatever it's called for the Wii. It's a good concept but once again let down by the Wii's controls. The arrows and icons are too small, especially when changing your worm's names, and with the wiimote being a little inaccurate getting the team you want is harder than it needs to be. With a few minor changes such as bigger icons and smoother controls it would have been great fun and an ideal Wii game given the subject matter, but it just wasn't polished enough. End result is that I picked up Armageddon for my N64 and the Wii version has been sat gathering dust ever since.

    There's a lot of online traffic on certain games, mainly Nintendo ones. Mario Kart Wii comes to mind [​IMG].
    I'm glad they're including online on this game since Worms is so much fun :3.

    Why do they have Weapons A, Weapons B and Weapons C? Why not just have everything on one screen? [​IMG]

    I've been a huge fan of the Worms series since I was a young lad. I used to play the demo over and over because I couldn't afford the actual game.

    I wonder if this is going to cost a lot. The game is pretty basic, but the developpers are trying to milk this as much as they can (custom maps, custom... Worms).
    Hehehe, meta-game

    This game was announced ages ago only back then it was a WiiWare title, shame it went to retail instead but I guess they might have not been able to fit it onto the space limit Nintendo has to impose.

    Many other people will disagree with you. I am pretty sure Team 17 has said they won't ever go back to 3D Worms games again after how horribly Worms 3D sold and how poor the reviews were, and that was around the time of the release of Worms Reloaded. I agree it was decent, but there were far too many perspective issues with the game that made it painful and not worth playing.
