Worms is a action, turn-based 2D shooter brought to you by the British Team 17, released onto Xbox Live Arcade in 2007.
A very fun and entertaining game from its original back in 1995, Worms allows you to create your own team of 4 worms to battle against any other team of 2-4 worms, with maps which are entirely destructible.
The game itself is humorous and brightly coloured, from worms mouthing off at each other to just plain trash talk.
The single player contains 3 tutorial stages for those who haven't played the game before and 20 single player deathmatch challenges against the CPU.
There is also the option to start a quick match game, which you choose the difficulty (Beginner, Intermediate or Pro depending on how hard you wish the CPU to be), this mode also chooses the map and team of worms for you, instead of you having to create a custom game.
You have an array of weaponry at your disposal from the bazooka, hand grenade, shotgun and banana bomb, there are also weapon drops, health kits and other items that will drop down whilst playing, grab these to get some new weapon or tool for your enjoyment.
Multiplayer in Worms is much like the Single player, where it pits your team of worms against one of your friends team of worms (up to 4 teams), you can also use multiplayer to create a custom single player game, choosing your own team of worms and map.
Worms has the ability to play over Xbox Live to play against some of your friends or have a deathmatch against another player(s) team.
The visuals in Worms are fantastic, beautiful backdrops and ridiculous maps to blow away your enemies, the worms looks as silly as ever, making the game look stunning and very polished though even in 2D style.
There is not a lot of DLC available for Worms, these being new voice sound banks and more landscapes to play on, a few nice additions to keep the addiction flowing and pulls you back to the game, but not anything to celebrate over.

They are pretty straight forward, and not very difficult to obtain, some can just be time taking, and others like "Worm Community" can take a lot more time, depending if you can find four players online to play against.
I have loved Worms since my first Sega Megadrive, and have always came back to play it, regardless of the console, for my this was a must buy from the arcade, and will always be staying in my game library.
