4 April 2008
Summary: Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed delivers an all-new sci-fi action gaming experience, where players control Crypto as he travels the world in the 1970s, unleashing massive destruction on foot, in his UFO and for the first time, in the Big Willy mech.
Conclusion: occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, if you can make the connections with some of the references, including Fantasy Island . The usual tools are at Crypto’s disposal – weapons like the Zap-o-Matic, Anal Probe and Psychokinetic abilities like Psychokinesis – including the arsenal of the flying saucer.
