I am enjoying my time with Worms Rumble, but with Deathmatch being the only mode I find enjoyable to play, just three maps, only ten weapons and a slow levelling and unlock system, it feels slightly undercooked at launch.

Worms Rumble is a solid adjustment to the series, being familiar while also tipping the scales towards a battle royale in a fine way.

Worms Rumble may not be the same Worms fans have come to know and love, but it is still a wacky action-packed game that everyone can enjoy.

It is kind of a tough sell to hardcore Worms fans, but it ultimately works quite well. Worms Rumble is a more fast-paced variety of Battle Royale, with a Deathmatch mode thrown in for those who want a more conventional multiplayer experience. The experience is quite a lot of fun, at least for a few hours until the repetition sets in.

Once some sort of turn-based strategy game, Worms Rumble embraces the current trend of action, movement and last-man standing of a battle-royale with the same kind of progression and loop mechanics.

The Worms series has been around since 1995, so I’d be surprised if any gaming fan hadn’t heard of those angry anthropomorphic fellows! To sum it up, the series largely revolves around turn-based artillery tactics. Often having to be the last one standing, you use whacky weapons to deplete your opponents’ health. Sheep, Holy Hand Grenades, and more, Worms boasts slapstick humour. It has gone through character design changes, 2D to 3D, and even a mini-golf spin-off!

I wouldn’t dive into Worms Rumble looking for the original nuts and bolts if you’re an older player. I can easily picture that scenario since there are already a plethora of Worms titles and remasters on Steam. But if you seek a 2D Run N’ Gun multiplayer experience, you’ll have some fun. This game will stay relevant as long as there are enough players online to carry the torch. Without them, I can easily see it fall into obscurity.

There's not much to say about Worms: Rumble. It is a kind of beautiful canapé that will outrage avid fans and will definitely please others. You will laugh with your friends and here and there you will swear at places with breakneck control. But that's enough for a beautiful 7 points out of 10.

Worms Rumble is credited with bringing a new perspective to this beloved franchise. However, the gains from the inclusion of multiplayer modes with real-time action neutralize the charms of Worms: we don't have the humor, brutal destruction and tension of turn-based combat titles. Despite this, it is a game made with quality and attention to detail. Fans of classic style will certainly have a harder time digesting the changes, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. After all, the constant updates and the inclusion of new modes show that Team17 is involved with the evolution and improvement of the title, which can become more and more polished and interesting.

It just isn’t as fun as any of its turn-based counterparts. In a sea of multiplayer shooters with way more content out there, some of them not requiring an upfront payment in order to access them, this game just doesn’t have what it takes in order to stand out.
