Worms Open Warfare 2: Interview
he original Worms: Open Warfare seemed like a modern recreation of the original Worms on the PC in 1994, Worms: Open Warfare 2 seems to build on that ‘original’ feel but introduces many new weapons, could we get a brief overview of these weapons and how they can affect the game?
The game contains all of the weapons and utilities found in the previous game, and has an additional eleven items. The additions are a mixture of returning classics, ideas borrowed from the 3D Worms games and some completely brand new ideas.
