So the game play isn't new or innovative - in fact fans of the series will find it to be a little too similar to the first two to be truly 'new.' But the one liners - the one liners almost make up for it. At one point we were laughing so hard we missed the police shooting at us and died, having to 'start over': a relatively painless event that usually just takes you back to the start point of the mission, if you were even on one.
The Wii doesn't have many landmark games, and if you're looking for innovation, hot graphics, or really anything unusual, Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed probably isn't your horse. But, if you're okay with a little mostly mindless fun and some clever, darkly humorous writing, this is well worth a shot. Just watch yourself - after this many anal probes, you may never look at a rectal thermometer the same way again.
