    This remake of Destroy All Humans! is really quite incredible.

    Destroy All Humans! is a rare example of a remake that changes just enough to maintain the essence of the original while improving the overall experience. The gameplay enhancements give this a more modern feel but it maintains the original story and visual style to appease those seeking a nostalgia fix. Destroy All Humans! was always a fun game though hasn’t aged all that well. This version revitalizes the title, changing just enough to make revisiting Area 42 a worthwhile invasion.

    A decent remaster. Despite some shortcomings it still is fun to join the destructive alien on his adventure, that not only appeals to a new audience, but to old Crypto-fans alike.

    The Destroy All Humans remake’s skeleton is geriatric in some respects. Repetitive audio, antiquated objective types, strict fail states, and repetitive audio are dead giveaways that this game is firmly planted in 2005 in detrimental ways that this remake did not address. But the overhauled control scheme and thoughtful new mechanics add a layer of muscle on top of that skeleton and keeps old age from breaking those bones down into dust.

    Overall, this remake of Destroy All Humans is essentially the 2005 original with a fresh coat of paint and a few tweaks, and it carries over everything, warts and all. While there are definitely some frustrations in the gameplay mechanics, taken as a whole, the game holds up surprisingly well.

    The updated version of Destroy All Humans certainly looks a lot better than the original did on two-generation old hardware, but it really needed the gameplay to be updated as well. Artificial challenge created by horde-tactic mobs of enemies, a clunky skills and weapons system, repetitive gameplay, and claustrophobic open world levels all work against the graphics to really show the game's age. The game's premise still holds up today, so it's a shame that the gameplay was left stuck in the past.

    Fans have been clamouring for the return of Crypto for some time and Destroy All Humans for PS4 is their chance to relive the bygone PS2 era and relive those ill-tempered, extra-terrestrial antics from fifteen years ago. The remake looks great but unfortunately, THQ Nordic’s 2020 effort introduces more issues than it solves; keeping repetitive audio while adding in lengthy loading times, performance issues and poorly implemented gameplay updates. For the one small step of increased graphical fidelity, this version takes one giant leap back for overall quality.

    Man this game was amazing. Not sure whats up with the reviews. This is exactly what it claims to be - Destroy All Humans Remastered.
    Crazy good graphics, super fun gameplay, a dumb action movie story, etc make this game 100% worth picking up. Its a budget priced title too!

    There are a couple negatives - repeating dialogue, too much stealth - but these are all sort of forgivable when you remember this is a PS2 game.

    Anyway, go buy it! I want Destroy All Humans 2 Remastered

    Destroy All Humans! is and always will be my favorite franchise, there’s just nothing else like it out there. The original was amazing back inDestroy All Humans! is and always will be my favorite franchise, there’s just nothing else like it out there. The original was amazing back in the day, but it hasn’t applied face cream for a long time and is seriously starting to show its age. The animations and movement are stiff, combat is held back by restrictions like the contextual menu, the sandboxes have nothing to do, the side challenges were an afterthought, and so on.

    Black Forest Games didn’t just want to remake the game but our memories of playing the game. Did they succeed? In my opinion, yes, in fact, I believe they made the game better than I remember. It’s not perfect, there are still a few disappointments and annoyances, but great galaxies the remake not only managed to subvert my expectations but even exceed them! It surprised me in so many ways, and overall I had a blast with it. I can’t wait to replay it over and over just as I did with the original back in the day!

    Fans of the series have no reason not to pick it up. It’s the game we love with a few changes to keep it fresh, a lot of fun new bells and whistles, and a gorgeous new coat of paint, for twenty dollars less than what the original game cost. If you’re a newcomer and you’re looking to try something unique and fresh, you love sci-fi, destructible sandbox environments and want a game where you can just load up your Spotify playlist and cruise around causing chaos or a fun weekend killer, give the game a look!

    7.5/10 - Very Good/Recommended

    Positives

    A well-made faithful remake of a fun, solid cult classic
    Decent challenge for completionists
    Very enjoyable gameplay loop
    Absurdly fun psy powers with funny ragdoll physics
    Enjoyable boss fights
    Corny story and fun, campy dialogue
    Fantastic voice acting, from Richard Horvitz especially
    Gorgeous destructible environments
    Actual unlockable rewards, no microtransactions or loot boxes
    More replayability than the original
    Great ‘stress ball’ game

    Negatives

    Some disappointing missed opportunities
    Great moments, lines and easter eggs from original not present
    Challenges and missions can become repetitive
    Potential frame drops on older console versions
    Technical issues, bugs & crashes
    Occasional frustrating difficulty spikes, particularly in Capitol City

    Personally I adore the remake, it would easily be an 8.5 without all the issues and disappointments, but I do absolutely love the game and I sincerely hope BFG gets the opportunity to remake DAH!2 as I’d really love to see what they can do with it. But I do also hope they get more time to work on it because it’s easy to tell this remake could have been even better than it is if they just had the time. I still weep internally for what could have been a 3D, explorable Mothership.

    Here’s hoping THQ Nordic greenlights some patches and DLC, and that humanity isn’t totally wiped out before that can even happen! Fingers crossed for a remake of DAH!2 in 2022!

    You get what you paid for and then some. If you were a fan of the original game from 2005 then you'll LOVE this again with updated graphicsYou get what you paid for and then some. If you were a fan of the original game from 2005 then you'll LOVE this again with updated graphics but keeping the core gameplay and story exactly the same.
    If you take a 50's Sci-Fi B movie but make it into a video game then this is what you get, a silly action game that makes you, quite literally as the title implies, destroy all humans.
    Crypto 137 is probably one of the most hilarious, likeable and playable, "bad guy" in any video game. His dialogue and the way he acts is what I imagine an Alien who truly doesn't give a crap about Earth or his missions. Well maybe not talk perfect English but I digress.
    Set in 1950's America, you and your forces travel to Earth to find another member of your species but soon discover a bigger plot on this planet and it's up to you to uncover it and destroy it before the whole world finds out.
    Not much else I can say except I would recommend this to anyone because it's a super fun game that is truly easy to beat but rewarding especially if you want to complete every side missions and stuff.
    Here's hoping we get a remake of Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.
