    Rebuilt from the ground up in every way, Destroy All Humans! (2020) puts every other remaster on notice -- this is how it’s done.

    In the end, Destroy All Humans! seems like the perfect palate cleanser in between games like The Last of Us: Part 2 and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. It isn't going to win any game of the year awards, but then again, it isn't trying too. It is simply here to make jokes, give players a power fantasy that involves invading wise-cracking aliens and allow people to live in their favourite b-grade invasion flick. By those goals, Destroy All Humans! is a resounding success and people looking for a light-hearted bit of fun should look no further.

    THQ Nordic brings back a cult of the early 2000s to the screens. Destroy all humans! that's all you remembered, with even more.

    Destroy All Humans (2020) is a fine offering by updating a fan favorite PS2 game for the modern era. Technical issues plague this remake from being the perfect 1:1 recreation, but what is there is fun enough to warrant a few hours of destructiveness. Fans of the series will surely find a lot to enjoy with Black Forest Games’ remake, but Destroy All Humans doesn’t offer enough actual new content to bring new fans in on the invasion.

    It’s just pure gameplay, and sometimes, that’s all you need in a game. Unfortunately, it does suffer a little bit from repetition. While it’s nice to see this style of game back again, it’s a shame it wasn’t a full remake, as the technical limitations of the older consoles can be felt in some of the level designs.

    Solid and true to the original, but even mordernized graphics can’t save the mediocre gameplay of the original.

    Destroy All Humans! has excellent visuals and is fun for a couple of hours. But it's so redundant, uninspired, and devoid of any real energy that I can't recommend it to anyone that doesn't already love the original.

    A great little short game and an amazing remaster. The open-world is really fun, it feels like GTA but you are an alien.

Undeniably weird, and consisting of a pretty fair variety of tasks from mind control, to some stealth, to all-out blowing stuff up and more I was also pleasantly surprised with how it remained pretty fresh throughout for the most part… though perhaps its pacing and reliance on connective cut-scenes that each need to load feels pretty dated as well. In terms of looks and performance I’d say it’s pretty consistent with many refreshed updates from previous generations, with everything having a certain unrefined look and some performance quirks at times that typically run a bit more pronounced when playing in handheld mode. All in all I can understand why people enjoyed Destroy All Humans in its original outing, and putting myself into the time when it was released I can even see how it would have fared well among its brethren, if nothing else by just being an atypical animal in the herd. If you’re feeling nostalgic and would like to recapture some of that fun it will likely deliver the goods, but if you don’t have that connection it’s up in the air for a recommendation… and would really depend on whether your love for games that feel off-center and different with abundant humor is more important than more compelling and consistent action and excitement.

    This game can be defined “good” only if you are a nostalgic fan of the og version.

    The concept is still fresh today, but the gameplay is too old. The tutorial is endless, the commands are sloppy, the in game dialogues should be funny but they are simply annoyingly stupid.

    The loading times are exaggerated: they are fast overall but a remake CAN’T have a loading every time I have to “watch” (most of the time skip because of the poor quality) a cutscene.
