PostSubject: Destroy All Humans ! Big Willy Unleashed   Sun Mar 09, 2008 5:17 am

Metachronos overall score = 5.8 / 10

Positive
- Destroying is still fun
- The addition of a Big Willy mech increases vehicle variety
- Some clever weaponry

Negative
- Not nearly as funny as previous games in the series
- Rehashed combat that wasn't so great to begin with
- Lacks the engaging presentation of first two games

The gameplay found in the original Destroy All Humans! may have been so-so at best, but it was able to overcome this shortcoming with a fiendish sense of humor that used 1950s sci-fi to satirize Cold War paranoia. The second installment did its best to mimic what made the first so funny, but couldn't produce quite as many laughs thanks to a lack of focus in its storyline. This downward trend in quality continues with Destroy All Humans! Big Willy unleashed, which relies on a quickly tiresome flood of sexual innuendo to mask the fact that the human-destroying action has gone stale.



Big Willy Unleashed takes its name from the chain of fast-food restaurants Pox has opened in his newfound quest to take over the Earth through good old-fashioned capitalism. The twist here is that Pox uses the scores of dead humans that have been piling up throughout the first two games (a result of his partner in crime Crypto harvesting human brains for DNA) as a cheap alternative to beef in his hamburgers. Heiress-turned-activist Patty Wurst (rhymes with "Hearst"--get it?) is out to expose Pox's Soylent Green-inspired business practices, so it's up to you as Crypto to stop her and her cronies. From there, the plot spirals out of control with a smattering of halfhearted '70s pop-culture parodies that rarely illicit more than a faint chuckle.

Destroy all Humans 3 isn't as fun as the previous 2 games and better be missed by those who already own the previous 2 games. This tacked-on multiplayer doesn't add anything to the experience and only continues the general theme of disappointment established by the campaign. It would be tough to recommend such an underwhelming sequel right out of the gate, but if you can find it down the road on sale, it might be worth it for the few chuckles it offers.
