  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.
  2. 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.
  3. An average sandbox title with a charismatic anti-hero and hilarious B-movie presentation as its saving grace. And we'll take that.
  4. Destroy All Humans! 2's scope should win a few converts, while providing enough originality to sate the fans. [Dec 2006, p.131]

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. A welcome addition to this version is two-player, split-screen co-op. It lets a second player drop into the game at any time, thereby doubling the destructive potential.
  8. 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]
  9. A minor improvement over the original, with just as many silly sci-fi shenanigans.
  10. The game suffers from a lack of new gameplay quirks, but those who couldn't get enough of Crypto's antics the first time will find plenty to enjoy here.
  11. Destroy All Humans! 2 really isn't a huge improvement over the original, more like a mild upgrade.
  12. Destroy All Humans 2 is initially enjoyable, entirely endurable and gratifyingly easy. But at its heart it remains an average experience. [Dec 2006, p.86]
