Team 17's quirky, turn-based war game goes 3D in this release for home computers and 128-bit generation consoles. The added dimension allows players to view the action first-person, from above in "blimp" perspective or from behind their invertebrate warriors. It also creates yet another variable for which to account when firing off any of the game's numerous, unpredictable weapons. Battlefield landscapes are randomly generated and, of course, fully deformable.
Other additions include a deeper training mode and improved AI opponents for engaging solo play. Worms 3D is designed to retain the style and feel of its 2D predecessors, with the return of such favorite armaments as banana bombs, "Holy Hand Grenades," and exploding sheep, as well as deceptively simple-looking gameplay that seldom fails to surprise.
This version of the game comes to retail a few months after the other console editions, allowing developers time to add multiplayer support; unlike its PlayStation 2 and GameCube counterparts, the Xbox version of Worms 3D is playable online, through the Xbox Live service. ~ T.J.
