Worms Battlegrounds is a strategy videogame produced by Team 17, more than a decade after the original title in the series. Released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles in 2014, it has a single player campaign. The game is at its best in multiplayer, which accommodates large teams competing on equally sizable maps.
Worms Battlegrounds Gameplay
Worms Battlegrounds introduces a few new game mechanics, but overall its gameplay closely resembles the earlier games. Players control several worms and they take turns to use weapons against their foes. There are few innovations, but all the core mechanics were revamped to look better and be more accurate.
Players also have the option of choosing one of the four classes of worms such as Soldier, Scout, Scientist and Heavy. Each has unique abilities and overall players have an arsenal consisting of more than 60 weapons, including some new additions. 10 new guns were added, including the teleport gun and they invite players to perform more complex maneuvers.
Worms Battlegrounds Graphics and Sounds
Worms Battlegrounds graphics are miles away from what veterans remember from the original title. However, developers went to great lengths to make sure they capture the very essence of the first game in the series. Battles take place in 2D and there are dozens of battlegrounds to choose from. More funny voices were added, with Katherine Parkinson narrating the game.
Worms Battlegrounds was never supposed to reinvent the wheel but it manages to breathe fresh life in the franchise. The new weapons and game mechanics as well as the slightly improved AI make the single player worth the time playing. The videogame shines the brightest in the multiplayer where players control teams of murderous worms taking turns at killing each other.
