Well... This is my first Worms game (Beyond a demo for Worms 4) a I think this game is quite enjoyable.

Pros +really easy to get into. Pretty easy to just jump into a quick game and figure it out. +simple controls. Not much to explain to people. The weapons are pretty self explanatory and you need to experiment with them anyway to use them effectively +fast multi-player. Not a lot of time to download which is a HUGE plus in my case. I normally don't have a lot of time to wait for the game to load which normally takes a while. The previous points also help out. +good replay value. There isn't a story so it doesn't really have an end. A good game to just pick up and play a few rounds. +random map generator. You can't just plan it out. You have to make a plan on the spot, making COUNTLESS strategies that will never be the same more than once... most of the time. ;) +a classic part of Worms: The voices. Ah... can't believe I almost forgot this one. Gotta love the voice overs and commentary. :D +The weapons. Take out the other worms with a strange arsenal of weapons. Anything from bazookas to exploding sheep...
Cons -Poor Graphics. Play it for the game play, not graphics. everything is pretty low quality, and the menus are pretty bland. -Useless Zoom. The zoom is pretty useless. It barely moves out at all making it hard to make accurate shots with the bazooka and such. -Pretty strange grenades. Grenades are TOTALLY UNPREDICTABLE! They bounce in some of the strangest ways... be warned. -Slow and Strange AI. I'm not sure if this has always haunted worms, but it seemed like it took a while for the worms to figure out what to do. They also take some suicidal shots into near by walls and such.
Summary I guess if you have never played a worms game, this is the best thing since sliced bread but I guess the pros feel like its just a poor imitation of the originals.
