    Somehow I've still not got round to playing more than 5 or so games of Reloaded..And I pre-ordered it!

    Just not enough time to play my games.

    It's a shame that Worms Reloaded was so terrible. Ah well, at least there's still the eternally excellent Worms Armageddon.

    Best one is still Worms.

    WTB Nintendo-esque hi-def 2d makeover!

    Worms and Worms 2 are the best ones to me.

    And here I thought they'd already failed with their previous attempt at 3D. Some games just don't translate well into three dimensions.

    Worms is a game that really doesn't need to be 3D let alone HD. 2D worms games are great as they are. I never thought Worms on Gameboy was any less fun than it was on any other format.

    +1 for 'some games don't work in 3d'...
    sonic 3d never happened

    Hated Worms 3D, Forts was ok but the 3d-ness was still horrible, never played Mayhem... and even then, to me it wasn't worms... It'd be like turning cannon fodder into a L4D-style co-op shooter... may sound great in theory... but it's not cannon fodder...

    personal favourite was Worms World Party

    I haven't enjoyed any Worms games that came after Worms 2. That was the peak of the series for me and is still really enjoyable today. Things just got messy after that.

    YEah. I remember it coming out, and tanking really badly. We used to play over a network in the house at uni (a whole 10MBit hub, not switch).
    Worms, Worms2 and Worms:Armageddon were F-ing brilliant.

    Worms 3D was almost impossible to aim, and made the game much much worse.

    I think Worms:Reloaded is great, not as good as Armageddon, but good enough ffor a comeback, and to get people back into Armageddon.

    Looks like history is going to repeat itself ;)

    Worms Armageddon was the greatest. I had two copies for the PC, one for work and one for home plus a 3rd version on N64 for those times when everyone wanted to play and it was AMAZING. I recently tried Worms Reloaded on steam and was not happy with my purchase. :( Time to dig up my old discs!

    The original worms on the amiga was and still is the best version - it may not have all the crazy weapons of the newer versions, but it was much more fun to play.

    I loved Sonic Adventure, and am quite happy to say so.

    Sonic R was awesome as well.

    Hey Team17 if you're reading this, don't bother developing new worm games.
    Just make Worms 2 work on Win7 and everyone will be over the moon.

    Every evolution of worms since worms 2 has been a downgrade. World Party was acceptable but the rest are missing the point and leave us hungry.
