    Not all the missions are wildly inventive, but the majority are satisfing and entertaining, and each is more fun than the original title's simplistic collection quests.

    Even so, the improvements to the controls and mechanics, plus an option to have a buddy jump in for co-op at any time, means there's never been a better time to pick up a Zap-O-Matic and vaporize some meatbags. [Nov. 2006, p.130]

    Flower power takes it on the chin here, and Love is agreeable enough to put it down for the count. And the mayhem here should be enough until Crypto turns his guns on bell-bottoms, disco, and Jimmy Carter. Watch the skies. [Nov. 2006, p.84]
  4. In the end, Destroy All Humans! 2 removes all the annoying issues from the first game, but also feels a little too safe in certain instances.

    Suffocatingly familiar. Excellent if you haven't played the original, disappointing if you have. [Christmas 2006, p.78]

    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.
  7. This game is, to me, nothing more than a sad attempt to cash in on the nominal successes of the first game.

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.

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

There's a fair bit of crude humor and some stronger language, so don't let the young ones play, or even watch you play. Aside from that, however, this game is an improvement over the original. Lot's of new guns, some new mind powers, and, of course, the sixties makes this game more than a distraction, it makes it enjoyable. Expand

    Destroy All Humans! 2 is one of the best Xbox games. You control an alien and whenever you die, a new clone of you just pops up. The storylineDestroy All Humans! 2 is one of the best Xbox games. You control an alien and whenever you die, a new clone of you just pops up. The storyline is beatifull and by the end, you wil lbe left off with wanting to see more. Theres alot of interesting and challenging side missions, witch dont really tie into the storyline, so you can skip them if you want to. The human snatching, the hippies, the russians, the cosmonauts, they all make this game multicultural. What I dont like about this game is whenever you do one little thing, the police is on your tail and the woman who serves as the deuteragonist was very weakly written into the story. I dont get attached to her. But the game itself is awesome, you should buy it, if you still have an Xbox lying around. Expand

    Honestly, I found this game to be quite boring and dragging. The first one is much better.
