In a word, Worms Rumble is great. It’s fun and as hilarious as ever, whether it be from an over-the-top-kill or the witty banter from the Worms themselves. I worry that the steep learning curve may turn some players off, but if you’re able to stick with it, you’ll have a ton of fun in the latest game from a longstanding franchise that keeps on delivering.

Worms Rumble is a fun twist on the tried-and-true Worms format. While it can be purchased standalone for $14.99, considering the online nature of its matches, most players will be better off subscribing to PlayStation Plus and adding it to their library via the free download being offered this month. Regardless, Worms Rumble is worth playing for a few rounds, and then a couple more, and so on until suddenly it's 2 AM and you really should be asleep as you have work in a few hours but just one more game couldn't hurt since you're so close to unlocking that next skin anyway… While destructible terrain may no longer be a feature, the interactivity of the sprawling maps makes up for it. Worms Rumble is easy to play but difficult to master, and worth your time whether you're a fan of the series or enjoy fast-paced competitive games that test your reflexes and quick thinking.

‎Giving a drastic twist to the franchise, Worms Rumble offers us a concept that may not please the most staunch players who have been there since the beginning of it, but that gives ‎‎a breath of fresh air to the playable section‎‎ and that maintains many of the characteristics that made these worms famous. By singing goodbye to turn-based strategy, Team17's work adapts to the new times through an experience that offers action-based encounters and can only fall short due to the few game modes it treasures. Although, that's something that only time will tell.‎

Legendary Worms are back - this time with realtime combat! It is acceptable new challenge, but there are not enough maps and game modes.

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.

Technical limitations aside, Worms Rumble on Nintendo Switch is a solid addition to the eShop, which is surprisingly sparse in its collection of Worms titles – Worms W.M.D. being the only other title available digitally right now. The better Worms Rumble experience can be found on other platforms, but the Switch version is good enough for wherever you have just a few minutes to play or while traveling.

Net of a not exactly impressive content offer, Worms Rumble is a very enjoyable iteration of the series and has not forgotten that strategic component that has always characterized the crazy battles between annelids.

The "mutation" of the Worms essence to battle royale dynamics works surprisingly well. Rumble is a fast, attractive and, more importantly, fun experience. It needs to grow in content, though.

Worms Rumble proves that worms don't need to take turns to sentence one another to a sheepy death. Not only that, but Worms Rumble succeeds in giving us an accessibly fun shooter with a decent amount of nuance for the competitive to wrestle with. The real-time combat and traversal work very well, and with speedy matchmaking, you'll always be up for one more game. The levels are well designed for a fun experience, although we would hope for more options in the future.

It's not Worms. With that out of the way, let's talk about what it actually is: an easy-to-get-into Battle Royale with fast matches, fun and quite casual as there isn't that much to do in the way of unlocking stuff: you'll just play, and play, play. This could be an issue in the long run: for how long will Worms Rumble be able to keep its players entertained? But do we really need to have an answer right now, or should we still be able to play just for fun, without worrying about seasons, events, tournaments we'll never take part and prizes we'll never win?
