Is innovation and modernization at the medium-minus level preferable to nothing? This is exactly the question that comes up around the launch of a remastered version of Worms World Party, the last two-dimensional title (before the modern comeback) in the favorite series about worms that deal with the elimination of each other with a variety of tools Weapon Original.
The Remastered version was designed to bring the beloved 2001 title to modern systems without the need for complicated manual workarounds and solutions, but managed to annoy many gamers because of early promises that simply didn't stand the test. The promise of FullHD playback and 60 frame rate per second was only partially realized, with the game actually running at 30 frame rate in FullHD, while the menus remained at an old 640 × 480 pixel resolution, just as they were a decade and a half ago.
Add to that the online game modes that don't really work, the lack of local online game capability and the inability to change the control buttons - and it's not really hard to understand why on the network you can find quite a few players taking the novelty, which cost 15 dollars (or 13.5 dollars now at launch), and claim that This is yet another attempt to make money in zero effort, at the expense of the nostalgia sensations of the series enthusiasts. Neither beautiful nor respectable.
