Is there something I'm missing by never having played a Worms title?  THQ thinks so.  There seems to be a new game (or revision to an existing game) all the time. This November, Worms: Battle Islands will be released exclusively on the Wii.  It will contain the expected single-player campaign and challenges but will also have online multiplayer support.  The trailer below does a lot better job explaining (and showing) what gamers can expect.  Expect more details about Worms: Battle Islands in the next couple of months.
