Worms3D Hands-on
9:42 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Computer and Video Games recently got their hands on the latest build of Worms 3D, and have posted their impressions online. A warfare strategy title involving worms, Worms 3D is the latest incarnation in the Worms series and is the first inclusive title to make the jump to 3D.

While Worms 3D seems to maintain most of the weapons and gameplay aspects of its predecessors, C&VG notes that one of the more impressive additions, thanks to the new 3D aspect, is that of a first-person perspective. Not only does this allow for easier targeting, but it also allows one to follow a fired projectile, which in turn allows for the viewing of a worm's subsequent demise.

Also noted is the adaptation of certain attacks to 3D:

Surprisingly, something like the Air Strike attack, which we thought would suffer from the change of dimension, actually works really well, and the 3D graphics engine also allows for the rather nice introduction of an aeroplane gracefully gliding over the battlefield and dropping its payload onto the ground below.
The write-up also discusses some current issues and is accompanied by a host of screenshots. A Mac version has been confirmed by Team 17, though a release date has yet to be announced.
