Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
If you're already a Destroy All Humans fan hoping for the next fix, this is definitely it. If you're new to it, this is a great place to start. The plot, subplot, and characters are all pretty absurd as usual. The humor is more crude than ever, and the excessive violence comes in even more varieties. The AI (people) are stupid as ever, and still blurt out all kinds of funny one-liners. The music is all right, and the graphics are pretty nice for the most part, except for all of the humans which are blocky as usual.
You complete missions toward a greater objective, as well as self contained odd jobs. You have a nice array of weapons and "pyschokenetic" abilities, as well as a flying saucer and the new giant metal robot fast-food chain mascot that shoots lasers out of its eyes and vomits corrosive acid. When you're not completing a mission or odd job, you can just have fun wreaking havoc however you want, which might be the best part of the game.
The controls are fairly awkward at first, but well worth learning. Crypto, his saucer, and Big Willy all control differently. Crypto uses the control stick and pointer, and you aim his weapons by pointing at the screen. The saucer and Big Willy use the gyroscopic motion sensor in the remote, which takes getting used to. Big Willy is a cool edition to the game and more than just a gimmick. Ultimately, it shouldn't take you too long to get the controls down and when you do, you'll see how easy and convenient they really are.
The Wii control scheme is similar to Metroid Prime 3, but it doesn't work as seamlessly, in part because Metroid is first-person and Willy is third-person. When Crypto is too close to another object, the camera moves into a pseudo-first-person view that becomes hard to control. It's also hard to get Crypto shooting where you want him in a mass firefight -- he has to be pointing the right way, even if you can put the cursor on what you want to shoot. As with Metroid, you can't get too excited while playing -- move the Wiimote too far to the side and it loses sight of the sensor bar, and you lose control of the character. However, the controls aren't terrible -- especially considering it's obvious from early dialogue that the game was planned for the PS2 and ported to Wii later.
The graphics are disappointing compared to other Wii titles; they're on a par with the previous PS2 outing, although the Wii's superior hardware doesn't drop frames when things get busy the way the PS2 did.
The biggest disappointment, though, is the writing. The sarcasm, wit, and biting satire of the previous two games is oddly absent. There's a lot of puerile jokes about Big Willy, but relatively little skewering of the 70s. Worse, Crypto no longer has the ability to read minds -- so the joy of listening to all the twisted inner thoughts of the game's residents is gone. True, you can hear some remarks by wandering around wearing someone else's body, but they're relatively few and more repetitive than in the past. The result is a game that has the mechanics that made the series good, but it's missing the soul that made it excellent.
In D.A.H: Big Willy Unleashed they added a big mechanical burger joint mascot. Which is very fun to use.
1. When Big Willy jumps he damages nearby objects when he lands.
2. He can pick up objects and throw them or swing them at enemies or nearby buildings.
3. He also has lasers that should out of his eyes and he burps up some nasty green green goo that burns all the victims it hits.
4. You can restore his health by grabbing nearby humans and opping there brains into his mouth. Willy is really invinsibile. He can be stopped but when he is fully drained of energy you just use the zap-o-matic to recharge him. As long as you constantly are eating human brains he can't be stopped.
I'm not sure what other abilities if any that he get's. I haven't really got that far into the game. You still get to use the trusty spaceship, but it's just not as fun. It can be disguised as a blimp though to hide from enemies.
Just remember this is based on only about 10% of game completion. I'm sure with more progress and more abilities to unlock that I will only continue to enjoy playing this game.
