Who on earth would want to play Worms United (Worms I with the Reinforcements add-on pack), when they've got Worms 2? No one. It's like having two Sharon Cons, each holding a tub of maple syrup, standing naked in front of you, the only difference between them being that one of them is real and the other inflatable. Now which would you choose? (Depends on the size of your PC, I suppose - Ed.) Some people may have prefened it, but Worms United is redundant - which means that a year or so after Worms 2 was first released, all you're getting for the same price is Worms 2 and the Worms pinball table taken straight out of Addiction Pinball. It doesn't make for a worthwhile compilation unless you're a Worms com pietist.
Having said that, Worms 2 is a fantastic game, which comes into its own when you have a couple of people huddled round a monitor with a few beers. It's a turn-based strategy game, but that does nothing to detract from the fact that it's fast-paced and has a great sense of humour, thanks to some attractive cartoon graphics and a feast of weapons ranging from shotguns and bazookas to exploding sheep and napalm strikes.
As far as pinball games go, the Worms pinball table is a good one, with crisp graphics and some great samples taken from the original game. The problem is that it's not quite enough to justify the price. Our advice would be to wait for Worms 2 to appear on budget and buy Pro Pinball: Timeshock!, which is already available for a tenner.
