    dkirschner's Worms Crazy Golf (PC)

    [December 20, 2014 07:19:57 AM]
    This Team 17 Humble Bundle turned out to be more lame than I expected. I remember loving Worms games when I was younger. Although they are still silly in a good way, I was so bored with every one of them. I think Armageddon was the best. It was 2D like the original, simple, but with good graphics, cool backgrounds, and fun weapons. Mayhem I had played in college at some point. It was the first 3D entry in the series. While I had fun with it then, I think it was because my roommate and I used to play each other. Playing solo was slow going. And the camera is not very good, making it difficult to see where your worms are headed and how to orient yourself to fire or at the end of turns to be protected.

    There was also included a horrible Worms Pinball game. It had one table and I couldn't even figure out how to control the flippers. No instructions. Finally, two were sort of neat. There was a Worms puzzle game which used various weapons to match three. Other minigames within that game I didn't like. Anyway, despite it being novel, again, I was bored. Then the name of this entry, which represents the whole bundle, is Worms Crazy Golf. It's just a little physics puzzler with a golf ball. You have to shoot par or better on each hole to advance to the next. There are a bunch of courses and various obstacles in each course, including lawn maintenance guys, grannies (why?), sheep, wind, and all manner of Worms-like geography such as cliffs, statues, and holes in the ground. It was my favorite of all of these, but...again...slow.

    It would be great if they speed up the pace of Worms. I still love the premise, and the weapons are zany. But it doesn't matter much if it feels like every turn takes 10 minutes and hitting a golf ball becomes a chore of watching it slowly fly through the air, then watching your worm crawl across the grass to the ball. How about a Worms arena shooter? That would be fun...

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Cute, strangely fun. But too slow, and therefore boring.
