Iíve been a huge worms fan for years, i bought this game expecting the same experience as the other 2d worms games i love so much...i was horribly disappointed. Granted this is the best looking 2D worms but whereís the holy hand grenade, super sheep, napalm strike, mail strike, sheep strike, carpet bomb, old lady, Molotov cocktails, bow, battle axe, fire barrels, single player missions, premade stages that look like funny crap...this is just off the top of my head. Itís not Worms Openwarfare... IT'S WORMS LIGHT!!! Is all this stuff unlockable maybe? Will there be some kind of patch to upgrade i can D/L to my PSP so I can enjoy this game? Or am i just going to trade this in for Bust-a-move.

Um...this game has a lot more replay value than bust-a-move. I've tried it out, and it's OK, but not as good as WOW. I'm not saying WOW is great, it's just better that Bust-a-move.

I dont know why so many people hate this game. This Worms game is more for multiplayer purposes, have you tried to play it with friends?

Its seriously fun, I play it everyday with my friends.

Those are in Worms Armageddon, where they've always been. There weren't any of those things in Worms, nor are there any in Worms Open Warfare.

Hey you know, this is the kind of thing I was talking about in my Worms Flash Game thread. Why waste hundreds of pounds making and developing a game for the DS and PSP that turns out to be a massive pile of what's that strange brown stuff that little dog left behind? Why not just spend a mere £30 for the same feedback, if that's what they wanted???!?!?

yeah, i know they're gone and i miss them. i still can't see why they couldn't of been put in WOW. it seems like they took alot out and didn't put anything new in. the multiplayer stuff is great i know... me and about 4 of my buddies used to Lan party with worms a few years ago on our computers untill 5 in the morning...i want that kind of worms on PSP, i hate lugging around my 'puter.

LAN party? Why not just play hotseat? Surely that would accomplish the goal of not having to lug a computer around?

You seem to have a wonderfully naive idea of how much it costs to make a computer game these days.

why does this game suck so much

I ask myself the very same question. I have a PSP and got this game. I am extremely dissatisfied. With the power of new generation systems I would expect a little bit more then this. Atleast some missions or something. And I don't care if "the original worms" didn't have any of those weapons, Worms Armageddon did, all the other games since Worms 2 had a lot of great weapons, and it seems with the power of a PSP they could have atleast added something in. The scheme editor sucks balls also. You can't even select how many worms you want in a game, when crates, health, or utilities fall, there are only like 5 different settings to change things to. The graphics are the only thing this games got going for it.

I like it.

Well that's funny, cause I don't.

I don't see why you're complaining. I just got this game today, and I gotta say that I love it. At first I was a little disappointed with the lack of weapons compared to WWP, but now I realize that these are a perfect set and I love using them. I also think the AI is good (although it could be a bit better), graphics are spot on and really worth buying in my opinion.

Well jesus you guys, it's a f*cking matter of taste.
Some of you don't like it, and rant, and some of you do, so what? What's this fighting's all about? Really childish...

Anyway, about the "diet worms" concept, really, this game (Open Warfare) is based on this FIRST WORMS GAMES, (mostly Worms United), that's why you don't have all the flashy addons W:A had. Got it? Good. Don't like it? Fair deal.
Nobody forces you to like this game. Personally I find making an old comeback like this is ace. Just an oldskool Worms game with better graphics and sfx.

Yes.. the first day i bought this game I found 4 glitches... and not just minor ones... they were ones that would either make me waste my move or lose the entire game altogether....

Major: one of them was that if you under another worm while connected with the ninja rope and let go, you will fall through the entire stage and drown. Another one had to do with the explosive barrels... you can easily get stuck in them... making you use teleport as the only way to get out w/o hurting yourself.
Minor: The sprite while walking will reverse, while shooting a shotgun sometimes the sprite will become corrupted.


the next day i found 3 more glitches.. all of this not including the AI glitches

I mean didnt they beta test this game at all???

Ive played many DS games that I can say are bad, but I've never been able to pick out bugs as they are called. I used to thing bugs were only isolated to platforms where they could be fixed. Obviously not these days.

Plus, games even without even starting a project cost thousands of pounds.
It just goes up from there, depending on how long it takes.

you know this game gets so much bad feedback that ppl dont even look into the game i mean honestly its one of the best ds games out there with great multiplayer and the only glitches i have really seen are the Ai they walk off the edge sometimes but that rarely happens for me ive never gotten caught in the terrain. Yes i wish this was more like armageddon but you have to realize IT ISNT ARMAGEDDOn its different maybe in the next worms it will be more like it but in this one no THis is a great ds game and i say if you have a DS and your a hardcore worms fan like me or you just want a fun and funny turn based strategy game Get this i Say its worth it

Best 2D Worms game since Director's cut on the Amiga :)

Yes, some weapons are missing but the game is pretty cool on the PSP. Even if I loved to buUUuueeen-geeeee :)

Yeah, those 60-70 year old grannies topless sunbathing and old guys in Speedos traumatized me for life. The fact that the beaches are made of rocks also makes walking on the beach hell in summer.

BTW, I've made a site with photos of Nice (taken by some friends of mine and by myself), don't know if I can post the url here, so :

To talk about the best 2D worm game ever, I have to say the last one I got before this one is DC on the Amiga. So, well...:cool:

I found yet another glitch...
if you on the ninja rope while it is curved and you activate a mine and that mine sends an enemy to the water you will be come stuck in the air and the ninja rope will dissappear.... you can no longer change weapons or move... it just stays there.... even after the round clock goes to 0 he is stll suck... but thats not all.. the next turn doesnt start... the match timer keeps going and the round time is stuck on 0.... I had to exit that match and restart...

I have the psp version and personally i didn't encounter much glitches apart from the time that the game freezed totally and i had to restart my psp to play on..

about the weapons: i think its much better they didnt put the super weapons in here, although i did hope for some new weapons which haven't been in any worms game up to now though... guess you can't have it all

I mean it's way too easy to throw a super sheep at a group of worms and have them die all at once (although the replay will be cool :P), i rather have some more challenge by using the weapons that i do got in a smarter way (like aiming a grenade next to a barrel causing the worms to fly away onto some mines, catapulting at least one of them into the water or something).

If you only can (or want to) play using those super weapons I think you'll be missing a lot of the fun, but that's just my opnion :p

i agree this game sucks really bad i was expecting a wwp related but it sucks here are reasons
1. no terrain editor a real shame drawing a terrain with ur stylus would of rocked

2. the weapons lack power and not as many

3. no wifi < :mad: this would of been really cool so even if u completed it on 1 player mode u could still play against people this really offends loaners :D since they dont have friends so they cant do the multiplayer with a friend

4. cant use ninja rope tarzan :( rope sucks

5.soundbanks same for both teams :(

6.no worm-pot :( not fair

7.graphics suck and terrain

8. and finally no different play modes like shoppa and fiddly controls and u cant lay banana bomb from jetpack so u always get hit

We should lock all of Team17 in a giant prison and throw away the key.

You CAN throw a banana bomb while using the jetpack...but it has a little odd bug in it.

If you already have a bananabomb in your weapons list, and then select the Jet Pack, a Banana Bomb icon will appear on the worm (because its the best weapon that can be used with the jetpack), meaning you can throw it... but if you try to throw/lay it, it wont be able to do it for some buggy reason.

Simply open the weapon list and select the banana bomb (while using the jetpack), and voila, you can throw it. (this for the PSP version, I don't know if the DS has this bug)

EDIT: Oh, I see you have the DS version, maybe you could try if this works for it.

I too am dissapointed with this game, it seems to have been scaled back too much to be a "portable" game while leaving no real ability for long games anymore.

I cant even explain it all, but basically I dont mind the lack of weapons its everything else that seems wrong. I would have preferred just a straight port of WWP or WA instead to be honest.

Why do console versions of Worms always suck apart from the original? Even the Dreamcast port had half of the graphical effects missing and computer would take AGES to take its turn.
