  1. A solid, but unmemorable game. The first stood out because it featured a unique premise and sharp humor, this lacks either of those, and ends up feeling like a mere add-on pack to the first instead of its own game.

    Suffocatingly familiar. Excellent if you haven't played the original, disappointing if you have. [Christmas 2006, p.78]
  3. Destroy All Humans! 2 isn’t necessarily a bad game – it just isn’t all that great. I was hoping that laying waste on hippies, yippies and KGB agents would be a bit more fun and a lot less confining.
  4. Killing foolish earthlings was more fun the first time, but this sarcastic sequel to last year's inventive action game is not without merit or amusement.
  5. An average sandbox title with a charismatic anti-hero and hilarious B-movie presentation as its saving grace. And we'll take that.

    Now I've said this before, and probably before I'm finished I'll say it a few more times, but as you play, you can't help but feel that you're playing just another set of levels of the first installment. Even the boss levels are just as frustratingly difficult as before, but the rest of the game is a cakewalk.

    DAH2 still suffers from its share of frustrating escort missions, cross-map fetch quests, and ugly graphical pop-up, but Pandemic's strides make second contact more pleasing than the first. [Dec. 2006, p.138]
  8. An improvement over the original, but these improvements are marginal, and it still has a lot of the same issues that occurred in the first game.
  9. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    It's definitely worth playing, but it could have been better with more mission variety and more powerful hardware. [Dec. 2006, p.122]
  10. An enjoyable script and weapons will keep you playing until the game's climax, but don't expect to go back for more.
  11. While the formula is solid, I think it was a missed opportunity for Pandemic to just churn out practically the same game. However, if you're looking for a no-brainer with big guns and lots of explosions, it rarely gets as fun as this.
  12. A minor improvement over the original, with just as many silly sci-fi shenanigans.
  13. Very much the title that the first invasion should have been, we're looking forward to what Pandemic could do with a possible third outing for the stubby Furon.
  14. An unfortunately aimless and inadequate sequel: a game that somehow manages to improve many areas but makes others worse in the process.
  15. 65
    Destroy All Humans! 2 keeps a lot of what was good about the first game and adds enough to make it something of a better experience. Somehow loses a bit to the material and to glitch issues that shouldn't be found in games released in this period of a console cycle.

This is a great sequal to a good game but i really hope the two sequals are worth extending the story. Full Review »

Also, the needless A.I stupidity is a massive bonus. Anal probing policemen and then launching their corpse 300 feet sums up the game. It's a shame that 1)My ps2 broke
    2)The xbox original version is not backwards compatible.

    My single favorite adventure game on the PS2. I liked playing as the alien defeating the humans and not the humans defeating the aliens. FunMy single favorite adventure game on the PS2.
