15Earthworm Jim 3D
I’m one of those people who would truly love to see a new Earthworm Jim game hit consoles. I also understand just how slim our chances are, and all because Earthworm Jim 3D ruined it for everyone. After changing ownership, spending a few years in development hell, and ultimately bearing
witness to the forced departure of its original creative team, Earthworm Jim 3D hit the N64 in 1999 to mixed reviews.
Although the game captured the offbeat humor of previous series installments, Earthworm Jim 3D suffered as the first title in the franchise to be rendered in three dimensions. Even the most seasoned players were forced to wrestle with the game’s camera, often to no avail, and that alone managed to completely sour what would have otherwise been a solid, enjoyable addition to the series.
