Worms 4 received positive reviews. It has a score of 74/100 on Metacritic.[4]

148Apps' Jennifer Allen praised the single player campaign and daily challenges, but noted that the online multiplayer mode "is frustratingly quiet and there’s no sign of asynchronous multiplayer which would have combated such issues."[6] Gamezebo's Nadia Oxford notes that the game continues the old-fashioned combat from the series but also found issues with the online multiplayer, noting that "the server has a hard time finding other live opponents, and generally has connection issues even if you’re beside a strong Wi-Fi signal."[7]
