Worms World Party Remastered Gameplay Review

I'm playing Worms World Party Remastered, a turn-based strategy game by Team17.



This remastered version adds higher-resolution graphics (but only during a match; the menus remain very much low-res), improved sound, controller support, and Steam features (like cloud saves, leaderboards, and achievements). The rest of the game is identical to the original: a feature-filled smorgasbord and the best Worms game overall. Single player and local multiplayer scenarios consist of missions and deathmatch on randomized or custom terrain with flexible weapons, items, timing, and game rules. Online multiplayer utilizes antiquated IRC chat for matchmaking. The familiar weapons spread makes its return: bazookas, grenades, guns, air strikes, teleporters, melee attacks, and flying sheep all make an appearance. The AI still serves as good opposition. Still, due to the inconsistent resolutions and odd online features, Worms World Party Remastered is a meager update to a fantastic game.
