Worms Revolution was developed and published by Team 17 Software. It was released on October 10, 2012 for $14.99 or your regional equivalent. A copy of the game was provided for review purposes.
The Worms franchise has been around for a long time, almost two decades. If you haven’t heard of it by now, you should probably put down the PS3 controller, hop online, and do some research about the PC games of yesteryear. Somehow, developers Team 17 have found a way to keep players coming back for more. Maybe it is the insane gameplay of the Worms games, or maybe it is just the fact that the feisty little worms are so darn cute. I’m not really sure. But, Team17 set itself a high bar with Worms Revolution by promising to bring the quintessential classic Worms experience into the 21st Century. Did they succeed?
