Worms A Space Oddity





Worms A Space Oddity 


Worms A Space Oddity on the Nintendo Wii is a bit of an oddity. The Worms franchise has been around for awhile, but it is still a difficult franchise to put in a box. It is part puzzle, part strategy, and part action war video game. Players have worms, and objectives (like kill all the enemy worms), a timer to perform actions, and a set number of weapons that can be used on a particular screen. Turns are taken back and forth until the objective is reached. It is important to note that the player, or computer can accidentally blow themselves up in the process of trying to get the opponent. When a worm loses all of its health points then it blows itself up, which can possibly damage an opponent.

THQ made sure that Team17 used a whole lot of wonderfully bright graphics in this worms in space Wii title. The little cut scene movies of the worms are humorous, and entertaining. They are like watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon, so cartoon violence is included. Worms A Space Oddity is done in the 2D graphical style.

The WMG wishes the sounds department was as fresh as the graphical department. The player has a choice of different worm characters who have their own little sayings. These saying get old really quick though, and rarely are they humorous. At least not in this reviewers opinion.

The main replay value to Worms A Space Oddity on the Wii is playing other people. Friends and family that are using the same Wii can play each other. Once the story mode is completed there is little reason to replay, unless one wants to improve their time.

The WMG loves how there is a training mode in Worms A Space Oddity to teach the player how to use each of the weapons, tools, etc. The down side is some of these commands took the WMG awhile to understand. The first two weapons which are used the most were the biggest problems. Certain levels can be difficult to solve, and add to the frustration. Worms A Space Oddity gives the player hints but after failing fifty times straight in a row some additional guidance would have been appreciated.

The main issue with Worms A Space Oddity is the violence. The mild suggestive themes, and comedy will bother some, but the violence is a lot more present. Use of all the weapons anywhere is needed in sequels.
