In our review of Worms Rumble, Gareth scored the manic multiplayer title a solid 7 out of 10. Here’s what he had to say:
Although purists may balk at Worms Rumble, I found Team17’s reinvention to be a welcome change in direction for the series. Real-time action wrapped around the battle royale genre works a treat here when combined with the zany, explosive world of Worms, but in order to become a multiple mainstay it needs more depth both in terms of strategy and player progression.
Worms Rumble is currently available via PC on Steam as well as PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with online crossplay enabled between all three platforms. Anyone with an active PlayStation Plus subscription can grab a free copy of the game throughout December. Worms Rumble is one of three games you can redeem in December via PS+ alongside Just Cause 4 and Rocket Arena.
So far we’ve been having great fun with Worms Rumble and the way it twists the series’ tactical 2D formula into an explosive multiplayer shooter.
