Worms 2: Armageddon Screen Shots

Worms 2: Armageddon is a Shooting game available on the 360. It can be played in Turnbased Competitive Sharedscreen modes.

Worms 2: Armageddon is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.

Worms 2: Armageddon can be played in a Turnbased mode. Turn Based games are played in turns, so that players can stop and consider their next move. This is common in tactical experience such as strategy or adventure games as this enhances the sense of control and planning the player has. Other genres - such as sporting, fighting and rhythm action games obviously rely on realtime game play.

Worms 2: Armageddon can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

Worms 2: Armageddon can be played in a Sharedscreen mode. Shared Screen Multiplayer games create a multiplayer experience where players all share the same screen space. Rather than splitting the screen into portions for each player the game scales to fit each player in view even when they are a long way apart. Football and fighting games often take this approach as the shared view doesn't impede the players ability to take part in the action.

Worms 2 Armageddon XBLA combines time limited decisions with careful planning to create a game on a knife edge. The tension is then wonderfully relieved by the insane stars of the show - the soft squishy pink megadriles.

Worms 2: Armageddon, considered by many to be the best of Team 17's turn-based blaster series, has arrived on Xbox Live Arcade as a budget download. It's a fun, colourful affair that brings simple, addictive joy to your Game Library.

Multiplayer Gamer review Wed, 17 Feb 2010

Worms has been enthused over since it's original, multiformat version arrived in the mid 90s. It's a bone fide classic beloved by armchair generals the world over, but is this latest installment worth adding to your multiplayer collection?

This was meant to be an opportunity to go back in time and relive my golden days of videogaming when all night sessions were par for the course. When five hours of Worms on a Monday night with an eight o'clock start the next morning was nothing out of the ordinary. But that was back when online console gaming wasn't even a pipe dream. If memory serves me well I have played Worms on the Amiga, Megadrive and PS1 we even played it on work PCs back in the 90s when no one was looking. It's like riding a bike, I thought, once you learn you never forget.
