This Mac edition of Worms is exceptionally good. While keeping the usual worms format that fans know and love you are given an arsenal of weapons the British Army would be proud of along with an array of items to assist you across the battlefields. Newcomers will enjoy mastering the various functions so will find the excellent tutorials very useful, while seasoned players will find this special edition has literally hours of playtime fun.

The weapons are so big in number that it is useful to take time out to try to practise using them so not to waste time during the game ,plus you do have to earn some of them they aren't just given to you . Each one is different to the last so knowing which one will serve you best in a particular place is handy to. Weapons include the usual bazookas, rifles, mines, exploding sheep, dragon balls plus punk buster missiles. The gadgets are also great and include jet packs, ninja ropes, teleporters or parachutes. The usual customisation function is here too. You can choose names for your worms also what they wear plus how they speak, right down to their accents.

When playing in single player mode you have a choice of difficulty level starting with easy, progressing to hard. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a middle level that is neither easy nor hard which doesn't give the player that stepping stone feel in terms of gaining skills. That said it is still a great game to play. Players who are new to Worms would be best starting with one of the campaign modes as they are better for learning skills in my opinion. Along with the campaigns come various puzzles where you get less armoury or the targets are harder to hit. These are good for practice too.

Once again the graphics in this game are simply stunning. The cute faces of the worms with their ridiculous expressions are hilarious. The soundtrack also hits the mark with good musical accompaniment along with quirky sound effects such as explosions or the voices of the worms as they comment on the battle are really funny. The game is one of timing and strategy plus can be as challenging or as simple as you like. Worms Special Edition is certainly one you will want to add to your collection.
