  • Summary: This is your chance to experience the other side of an alien invasion. In Destroy All Humans!, you play as an alien who must use a UFO, advanced weaponry, and special abilities to take over all of humanity. You'll terrorize the people of Earth with a variety of alien weaponry--the Ion Detonator, the Zap-O-Matic, and the Sonic Boom, or even the Quantum Deconstructor--on land or in the air. Expand

  1. It has been a long time since I've had so much fun with a video game... Love him or hate him, Crypto's intense hatred for our race and his willingness to fail missions just to !&%$@#* off his leader makes him this year's iconic character.
  2. Though the gameplay in general consists of nothing drastically new, the style and narrative flair that oozes from this game really do deserve attention from the gaming public.

    Talk about a game that took me totally by surprise. Destroy All Humans! is one of the most enjoyable experiences to come down the pipeline in awhile.

    Makes destroying humans fun with an original setting, enjoyable alien arsenal, and cleverly designed missions. Its sense of humor may falter once in a while, and content freaks will definitely find the game on the short side.
  5. 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.
  6. The concept is pure gold, and much of it works beautifully. We hope this becomes a series; a sequel that kept all the dark humor and cool powers, but explored and civilized its gameplay could utterly dominate us, and we wouldn't mind one bit.

    Uninspired visuals, disgustingly easy gameplay, and a complete lack of any real motivation to play the game awaits any who dare purchase this title. It is tedious and boring at every level.

    Fun Fun Fun... if your sense of humor is a bit twisted, you will love this game.. Even my Mom loves this game. there is just so many little things about the game that it going to take me, forever to get it 100% completed.. There may be repetitive gameplay, but there is in every game.. its also harder than it looks.. and things go BOOM!!! And thats all I have to say about that. SI-FI GEEKS will love this Expand

    Hey, who doesn't like playing around with telekinesis and blowing stuff up? Picking up cars and trucks then flinging them into enemies alone makes this game worth playing, but sadly it doesn't make it worth a good score. Sadly lacking, the humor gets old and the missions tedious. The extras, mostly time races, are absolutely unplayable rubbish. Expand

    Pretty good, certainly not great. The repetition factor is definitely in play here. I am about 50% done and so far everything has been float-easy. Fun concept, some funny stuff here, but clearly a rental. There isn't anything worthwhile looking coming out anytime soon, so worth a play. But I will say I was real excited about this one, and after a few hours of play, all I can say is it's just okay. Expand

    Incredibly average. The gameplay is dull after the first 10 minutes, and it's also way too straightforward. The humor is amusing at times, but it's also borderline offensive and in bad taste a good number of times. Definitely not for children. Expand
