Review imageWorms: Battlegrounds is the latest game in the Worms franchise. It features an extensive single player campaign covering 25 story missions and 10 “Worm-Ops” time-attack missions, which are set across five environments (Inca, Viking, Feudal Japan and Industrial Revolution) with new day-to-night lighting transitions.

Single story mode sees you getting used to the controls, before heading into numerous fun challenges. One level in particular sees you having to dispatch sleeping worm enemies who won't attack you unless your attack fails to completely kill them.

Review imageThere's the normal multiplayer mode where you have to keep your team alive and dispatch the enemy to ensure your team is the last one standing. Sadly the game's AI is pretty poor and so the only way to play this game is against friends locally/online or other online strangers.

Fans who have been following the franchise won't be disappointed. It's pretty much more of the same with a few more bells and whistles.
