    "Well, I am rating this game high enough because it stands out among the rest. The strategic elements that can be found in the game give the users a deeper experience. While Worms 3 still remains to be a fun game, they added new strategic modes: 1.) Squads and 2.) Cards. YOu can also play either online or local multiplayer. :D "

    "Personally I do not think I would be interested in playing this game. The graphics really bother my eyes and make me a bit dizzy. If I were looking for a multiplayer game this would be fine to play against one other person only. It is not a typical multiplayer game where you can talk to people from all over the world and wear a headset to communicate. It is good that you can play one handed though."
