It’s a tough game to make fun of. It’s filled with absurdities, but they don’t translate well into comedy. It’s just, “Hey, you know how the game sometimes does that odd thing? Yeah? That’s dumb, isn’t it?” The plot is sometimes just tepid, sometimes painfully ridiculous and contrived. The fun comes from blowing up and knocking down buildings, and the game is always trying to portion that stuff out. It wants to make sure you eat a helping of driving around on labyrinthine brown terrain and babysitting NPC companions before you can enjoy your building-toppling cookie.
