You're a pudgy, kinda-gargantuan monster that walks around city streets and slowly razes the bustling metropolis to the ground. There you go. Practically everyone on the planet knows what's going on with Rampage: Total Destruction before they even fire it up. With this in mind, there's definitely some guilty, people-munching fun to be had here - and for less than 20 bucks.
You begin with a handful of the towering beasts, but by tearing through locales like New York, London and San Francisco, more than 25 creatures can be unlocked. It really doesn%26rsquo;t matter if you're an oversized nautilus or an angry cyclops, as each monster handles about the same. Yeah, some may scale the buildings a little quicker, but it's more a matter of preference than anything else.
Total Destruction tries to make the mindless button mashing a little more interesting by giving you goals to accomplish in each wave of new buildings. Eat five bikers, learn a new move. Smash a few cable cars and now you can do a roar attack. Each monster can level up in this way, but again, it all amounts to pounding the square button.
The game's morbid sense of humor can add a little something to the mix, if you think violently shaking a bus to spill delicious people into your mouth is funny. It's also pretty cool when you bust down buildings like a kite store, and multicolored kites spray out like a broken artery.
