Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed

  • The random sayings and sketch comedy humor
  • Running around destroying humans
  • Your own flying saucer!
  • The sometimes twitchy Wii Remote
  • The so-easy-to-be-silly 'missions'
  • The 'destroy all humans' riff is getting a little stale

Crypto is back, and this time it's in the disco-dancing, bell-bottomy 70's. The third installment in the series comes out with little that is new but does it with enough verve to make the game enjoyable, and sometimes, laugh out loud funny.

There is a plot - above and beyond destroying all humans to get our DNA - about stopping humans from figuring out what's really in Big Willy's hotdogs (Big Willy, by the way, is a how-did-they-not-get-sued-for-copyright-infringement replica of Bob's Big Boy, a famous diner), but it's pretty much just there to provide background noise to the overall objective: run around and anal probe humans for fun.


The missions are simplistic, but the ease of completing them - the whole game can be finished in about six hours - is offset by the flat-out hysterical one liners. And, when we got bored with the 'go here and move this' mission objectives, we could just careen around wildly anal probing people (there are other weapons besides the anal probe, but really, why bother with them?)

The Wii interface is clunky to start out with. We spent the first few minutes staring at the back of Crypto's head as he ran into a box, yelling at the TV: "TURN, why won't he TURN???"; but after the first dozen or so gleeful homicides we got the hang of it.
