Worms Armageddon; February Game of the Month

The PC version is my favorite game of all time, and the N64 version is pretty good too. A few missions, weapons, and voice banks are missing, as well as no online (obviously) and limited to four players. But the gameplay, graphics, and music (including one excellent unique track) are all there.

It's the gameplay, humour, and atmosphere that make WA such a classic. The phsyics engine, although hyper-accurate and ripe for abuse by teh hardcorez (not to mention the AI), is a work of beauty, as is the map generator. The artwork and deep ambient soundtrack are *beyond* unique, and those crazy voices NEVER get old! X_D

The heart of all Worms games, however, is the customization. Every imaginable setting can be changed, including number of rounds, round length, turn length, crate percentage, weapon power, weapon delay, sudden death style, and so much more. Think Perfect Dark in two dimensions. :D

The local multiplayer on the N64 version is great, but the PC version's online play, plus tighter controls (especially where the rope is concerned) are more my style. ^_^

You can't really go wrong with either version, but the PC gets you the full package. It's available on Steam, which is cross-compatible with the old CD-ROM, which might be cheaper. And thanks to updates for modern OSes, the online "WormNET" community is thriving.
