    Just been reading the hands-on from IGN, sounds like a massive improvement over the original DS release!

    http://ds.ign.com/articles/786/786277p1.html?RSSwhen2007-05-07_181200&RSSid=786277

    Online play and map editor included, sounds like this one will be finding it's way onto my shopping list, was a bit disappointed with the(IMO far too cut-down) XBLA version recently so I still have room for another worms game in my collection.

    I missed the concrete donkey/holy hand grenade/super banana bomb/etc etc from the first version

    ...I hope they include the super weapons in this release.

    I think this will be amazing with online play. It is perfect for a quick pick up and play blast so will be perfectly suited to the DS, so long as it is not gimped like the original.
    I will definately be looking at this more closely.

    I just read about this elsewhere for the first time (listed as a pre-order at HMV for £25), and now I can't wait for it! Sounds much better than the previous version was reputed to be, and will hopefully be more in line with how Worms used to be back in the good old days - none of this 3D rubbish :)

    HMV saying 20 July - does that sound right?

    ONM have reviewed it and give it a good 87% with the only complaint being "bland 3d backgrounds". I love the XBLA version (nice and simple) and it seems this is going to be filled with a few more weapons although the review does not really make clear which.

    This is a definite "must-buy" for me as I'll then be able to play 2 of the most fun multiplayer games ever (Worms & Bomberman) on the Xbox & the DS :thumbsup:

    Sounds great, although I loved the visual style of the XBLA version I actually got bored of that one very quickly, it was just too cut-down for my liking and even then they tinkered with the effectiveness of a few of the riskier to use weapons:confused: Also the online play was very broken & I found it such a challenge to connect with my friends I gave up.

    Looks like I might continue to get my Worms fix on the DS from now on, from the screens it looks like plenty of weapons are included, I can live without the 3D backgrounds, just give me the fun gameplay with plenty of weapons:D

    Managed to pick it up in a indy in Cornwall. Anyway, first impressions:

    Having been a bit disappointed with Worms Live on the 360, I'm pleased to say that this is very much a return to form. Lots of options and, most importantly, lots of weapons! I've only scratched the surface so far via a quick single player match and playing the first few campaigns, but I'm impressed.

    The graphics are good - I got used to dragging the screen around to see what was happening very easily. There is some use of the stylus, but not for the sake of using it.

    Had one ranked match online, which I expected to be either very tough or full of darkside tactics. Pleased to report that neither occurred! The service is seamless. Quick to find a game. No lag. No worries! :smashin:

    Still lost though!

    Anyway, I think I'll get some decent play out of this one! Feel free to add me... (FC: 2019 7300 7204)

    I was just about to add everyones' codes but *** at the add friend code screen! You can't even just tap them in, it's all stupid with arrows and stuff.

    Screw it, that would take far too long. I'll just stick to playing randoms.

    In other news, this game is awesome, and reminds me of the hours of fun I had with mates playing Worms and Worms 2.

    Finding this version hard work! I am bad enough with my aim as it is but not being able to zoom out and see where I are aiming (for those distance shots) makes it even more hit and miss. It is going take alot more practice before I can hope to play online and have any decent kind of match. Good game though and well worth the (relatively) small asking price.
