    I've bought a few worm games over the years and quite like the look of the new one. Its back to 2D and has a number of entising new features in it.
    In line with a lot of nowadays you now have different classes of worms fighters. There's a Soldier, heavy, sniper and scientist.

    There are 32 campaign levels plus 20 puzzle levels and a very customisable multiplayer game. For £10.99 you'll get a lot of fun out of this especially if friends have it.
    I will be downloading this in the next few days. If anyone else fancies a multiplayer worm battle then let me know.

    Played a demo of it on Xbox Live. Its ok, but like you Ive played every single bloody worms game. Bit of fatigues set in now, so I wont be getting it. Nothing fundamentally wrong with it, other than a vague sense of deja vu

    I was an avid player of Worms (PC), Worms plus (PC), Worms Armageddon (PC) and Worms World Party (PC & PS1). I've got worms on the DS and the paltry earlier PSN version. World Party was huge with weapons for days, a great depth and progressive AI which I battled all the way to Elite status on both the platforms I owned. I felt ripped off by the earlier release on PSN due to all of it's limitations. I've tried the forts versions and also the "3D" versions but never really liked them as they just felt like a gimmick on an old formula. This time I'd like to try before I buy but I don't think there's a demo available so pinball will likely remain my dip in game.

    I'm finding it rather hard to get past some of the levels, which is a good thing as Its going to last a lot longer. Haven't mastered the jet packs properly. Seem top be harder to control than in previous editions. The enemy have been training as well , they dont blow themselves up much and are pretty accurate with the weaponry. Still havent found anyone online to play it with yet.

    Well at least you got my interest piqued as a long term fan. Although I've been happily playing the Facebook beta but I have looked deeper into this new version. Visually it looks superb, the weapon range is sound but the AI seem as tedious as always and the PS3 version apparently suffers from game breaking frame rate drops making it difficult to aim cursors for instance. I'm keeping an eye on it but as it stands I'll wait for a patch so you'll be on your tod a while longer.
