    Though the story line of the overall franchise can be a bit stretched, it is very easy to have fun with this game but even easier to be bored with it, therefore this game deserves a "5".

    I love the DAH games; this game was the reason why I bought the game but this game is true and uter **** in every way possible. I grew up with DAH 1 and 2 always loved playing them, I still do, they we great sand box games, this was not. the controls were awful, aiming was ridiculously difficult and I never got used to it. to tern, you had to move the cursor to ether side of the screen, this sounds fine but try doing it wast shooting moving and being shot at. weapons weren't satisfying at all; before (and after) the DAH games has fun and imaginative weapons that were practical to use and upgrade, in this, you use the disintegrator ray and nothing else (unless you have no other choice). levels were badly designed and riddled with glitches that at times could stop the game from working (getting stuck in walls, missions not appearing and other smaller ones). the vehicles (saucer and big willy robot) were badly implemented and weren't fun to use. there is no reason to play this game, its **** in every way.

  1. Big Willy Unleashed is an interesting title to play, but it lacks the longevity of other sandbox titles like it.
  2. Mission design feels particularly lazy this time round, Locomotive seemingly jotting down amusing cutscene scenarios before finding tenuous ways of tying ‘destroy this’ or ‘abduct that’ tasks to the constant stream of ooh-er references to ‘big willies’ and ‘meat’ in the dialogue. [May 2008, p.97]
  3. Rather than taking an average game and making it fun like it was intended, it took a decent game and turned it to crap.
