Worms for PS3 £7.99 from PSN (Download)

20
Found 22nd Oct 2009
Full blurb below - but with online support, trophies and in HD I didn't bother reading any further, one of the classic games from my youth for a very reasonable (IMO) £8. Will be downloading as soon as I get some time to play it. didn't realise it was out (since April LOL) would have got it much earlier if I had.

Anyone reccommend any other PSN download games? Have crash commando and that's pretty good.

Add me (PM first) same name as on here

Have the Worms Changed at all?
Team 17 have kept the formula for Worms pretty much identical over the decade and a half since the titles inception, so it comes as no surprise that this newest iteration is pretty much indistinguishable from its kin.

Thats not saying its a bad thing, however, as the established formula is more than worthy of re-release after re-release. If it aint broke, dont fix it!

While the gameplay hasnt changed from the original version, the graphics certainly have. Adopting the cartoony style first employed by Worms Armageddon and with a HD lick of paint, proceedings look like a wonderful, vibrant (and explosive) Disney cartoon.

The completely destructible backgrounds are as ever randomly generated, meaning no two are ever the same (unless the player wants them to be, in which case codes can be used).

Everything about the look of Worms simply screams character, and the voices of the little critters just serve to accentuate these loveable characteristics.

From the traditional high-pitched cries to the Yorkshire-based hilarity of Ee, chuff me, fish and chips, there is little about Worms that fails to raise a smile.

The weaponry, as always, is the key element of the game and contains just as much vitality as any other aspect. While one might expect tools of destruction to be rather morbid, they are far from it just look at the Super Sheep and try not to laugh.

A Classic Worms Formula, Pulled off in a Classic Worms Style
This certainly isnt a title to revolutionise the way people play games, nor is it one that is likely to throw any surprises the way of the player.

What Worms for PS3 is, though, is an absolute classic formula pulled off with some stunning HD graphics and just as much heart as when the first game came out all those years ago.

Unlike 1995 though, there is now online multiplayer and trophy support. To battle!

Worms + HD + Trophies for £8 = HOT!!

What are the trophies like, easy, challenging, fun?

superstar dust hd is one of the best downloads, highly recommend it.

Love worms, got my iphone on Tuesday and downloaded it for that instantly! We play the ps1 ones all the time, although they are only good with human players as the comp has overly good aim with a grenade!

I was waiting for a comment like that. You've got a point:- its not on offer, no.

But considering I must have paid £100 for worms in various incarnations over the past 15 years, £8 is the least I've ever paid for it. Plus it has online support which it didn't on the PS1 (obviously). Plus it has trophy suport which it didn't have previously (obviously). Plus its in HD which it wasn't before (obviously).

So all in all I think its a good deal and a good price. Great even. But I've not really posted for the heat, I posted because I didn't realise it was out on PSN, and so I was missing out on this game. If it makes more PS3 users aware of this great game, then this will be worth it , heat or no heat.

BTW because I didn't realise this was available on the PS3, I bought Worms Space Oddity for the Wii thinking I would get a good worms fix. £13 for a second hand game, no online, no high def, no trophies, no gameplay, total carp, sold it for £9 the next week, plus it cost £1.80 postage. Plus fees

Something similar is available on XBOX too I believe?

PixelJunk Monsters. About £3. With trophies. two player option.
Must have put 20-30 hours into that game.

Repped. However I don't want to pay £8 for an old arcade game, is there any added content?

Repped. Saw this the other day and wondered if it was any good. Will get this ASAP

how is this a deal?? It's a ripoff for a start, £8 for this game when it's cheaper on the 360 and it's not reduced in price or anything.

Cold!

I've found it cheaper. 20% cheaper :thumbsup:
Buy a £20 PSN card from Zavvi/7dayshop for just under £16.

Wasn't there an online bug when this was released? Has it been fixed?

It's a real shame it doesn't have a lot of the more interesting weapons in the game, unless they've added them in a patch or something (which I doubt).

im stupid too i went to look for words on the ps3 store and couldnt find it anywhere i wonder why

Classic game. I bought this a fair while back for the same price, shame they haven't reduced it.

It is a good little game but be warned you may get bored of it after a while.

The only real thing to do is play it online, after some people mess around it gets annoying and boring.:x

Cheers for the heads up, now got and get yourself UNO & Bejeweled :-D

Worms=Great
