Worms Revolution is one of the best Worms games I have ever played.
I have been playing the Worms series since 1996, starting with Worms 1 on the Sega Saturn, so I am no stranger to this series.
If your new to this series, your are basically controlling a team of 1-8 worms (depending on game settings) in a battle to the death with some of the craziest weapons ever.
Weapons such as the Old Lady, Holy Hand Grenade, Super Sheep, Concrete Donkey, Bazooka,etc will be used as your team fights to the death in a turn-based battle with a time limit per turn and round.
You also get to use a variety of utilites to move around the map such as a Ninja Rope, Jetpack, Teleport, etc.
You also have the option of making your own gamestyles with extensive customizable settings, and this game also offers you the ability to make your own maps and play them online.
There are a variety of gamestyles to choose from for Multiplayer beyond the typical Deathmatch. Gamestyles like Survivor, Homelands, (think bases) Destruction, and Statue Defense will offer hours of good times.
Some new features for this version from other Worms series include dynamic water, new interactive physics objects, and new weapons and utilities. Yes, the rope behaves differently, (think bungee cord) but once you get used to this change you will not want to go back to the stiff rope of past worms versions.
Now let's talk System Performance. Worms Revolution as you may of noticed, wants at least a DUAL CORE processor and a good video card. I DO NOT have a Dual Core processor (I have A Pentium 4) but I do have a good video card and the game seems to run quite well.
However, the addition of dynamic water seems to be the big issue here. Lots of water on screen can cause slowdown for lower end computers like mine, but nothing too annoying.
Yes, there are bugs in this game involving the new physics objects, and annoying aspects relating to controls, but they are mostly minor.
There is an active community online to this day, and adding friends to your friends list who play the game can help ensure full 4 player games often.
There is also a Single Player Campaign you need to play to earn coins to buy new classes of Worms. This game has classes for your worms that helps them specialize in certain situations, such as stronger attacks from a heavy Worm, and quicker movements with a Scout.
If you like the Worms series, or if this style of gameplay sounds even slightly interesting, I highly recommend you give this a look.
