    The spicy, tangy combination of third-person action and real-time strategy is unlike anything we've played before.

    The missions vary from the mundane to the extremely challenging, and are chock full of sci-fi references and in-jokes, not to mention a whole slew of political zingers. [Aug 2005, p.74]

    Bottom line: being an alien is fun, even if it is a bit rough around the edges. [July 2005, p.76]
  4. And while the gameplay doesn't really do anything especially remarkable, and the adventure is unfortunately quite short, Destroy All Humans! shows such enthusiasm for its thematic inspiration that you can't help but at least appreciate what it tries to do.

    Destroy All Humans! is a successful mix of 3d-action, free roaming game play, conspiracy theories and sci-fi silliness. It has no apparent flaws but there’s still something missing from the mission design and the game as a whole. It promises a bit more than it manages to deliver. [June 2005, p.64]
  6. Perhaps if the reward system offered better mini-games this game might have been an instant cult classic.
  7. Computer Games Magazine

    Unfortunately, unless Crypto's race is looking to harvest tedium and repetition from our earthly minds, he's better off just harassing than destroying them. [Sept 2005, p.90]

    A great game controlling a classic alien from movies and what not, you get to do pretty much everything you've ever wanted to do as an alien.A great game controlling a classic alien from movies and what not, you get to do pretty much everything you've ever wanted to do as an alien. From flying around your very own ufo, sucking up cows (Classic!), cars, humans, destroying buildings. And even on foot it just keeps getting better and better. With a decent storyline for a game like this, it's a great pickup from '05. You'll be facing everything the human race can throw at you, military, even the Majestic 12! I highly recommend it if you're into alien games with humour. And when you've completed the game, you can always go back to the "zone/maps" and replay them as much as you want. Excellent game if you love replay games. Expand

    Totally kickass game. Campy fun anyone can enjoy. Lots of B-movie references, great lighting, lots of weapons, free run of towns and Totally kickass game. Campy fun anyone can enjoy. Lots of B-movie references, great lighting, lots of weapons, free run of towns and environments. It's like playing Mars Attacks the video game. A good buy and a great rental. Expand
