On the same day I bought One Piece: Unlimited Adventure I also got Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleased – there was a buy-one, get-one-half-off sale which meant they were only fifteen dollars each. The most recent entry in the DAH series (or rather, co-current with another one for another system) seems to have been pretty roundly panned as a big step back for the series, but I’m enjoying it. It’s not Mario-quality or anything, but it was a good deal for three fins. The controls, using the Wii-mote and nunchuk, take some getting used to but are easy to use once you get them down, and the ability to aim directly is wonderful.
I’ve only passed the first zone so far and already the ‘Big Willy’ jokes are getting painfully stale. “As stale as the crusty buns wrapped around my Big Willy”, as not-even-thinly-disguised Invader Zim expy Pox might say. Other than that, it’s pretty funny and has that GTA thing where the characters will sometimes chatter during missions. If you’re looking for sandboxy games for the Wii where you get to explore around and be a jerk to people… well, get Bully first, because it’s better than this on every level, but if you already have it and want another one, you can get this from the cheapo bin, because it flopped big time. LIKE POX’S BIG WILLY.
