    Destroy All Humans! brings the beginning of sci-fi back and improves the 2005 game. It's fun, the gameplay is well executed and the sense of humour and cliches are still there. Don't miss the opportunity to destroy all humans, because Crypto-137 and Pox deserve a chance.

    Destroy All Humans! definitely falls under the 'faithful remake' category, with great humour, short and sweet missions, and lots of stuff to blow up. Blowing things up does become repetitive, but it's still a lot of fun.

    In my opinion, I feel that Destroy All Humans 2 should’ve been remastered instead since it was made and released at a later time period in gaming. While first time players might find it a little stale, bland, and repetitive, old players regardless will have fun with the game as it throws them back into a more simpler time period than the one we’re living in now.

    Destroy All Humans! isn’t going to wow you. It will make you chuckle, however, and frequently put a smile on your face. It’s not overly polished, nor is it complex, but it is fun. Crypto is back, and we hope he’s here to stay. This alien’s got an attitude, but he’s lovable all the same. If anything, this remake primarily proves that he deserves more time in the limelight, and we’d love to see a fully-fledged new entry into the series at some point.

    Destroy All Humans! brings back the game from the 128-bit era with new graphics, new features and even restored content that was left on the cutting room floor. It wasn’t perfect back in the day and it isn’t now, but it’s fun if you want to have some classic, straightforward action.

    Destroy All Humans! is hard to criticize. It's not a bad game, it's just a product of its time. So you can only recommend it to those who liked it in 2005. These players will appreciate an upgraded visuals and laugh at silly, but still funny jokes. For others, it's a game with a repetitive gameplay and unremarkable visuals.

    Black Forest Games' remake of Destroy All Humans is a worthwhile adventure for fans of the series and those who grew up with Crypto's antics on the PS2 and Xbox. However, you'll need to make peace with its outdated gameplay mechanics alongside tired dialogue and story beats, many of which feature a number of offensive stereotypes.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If you are expecting a new entry to the Destroy All Humans franchise in terms of story, that might be still years away. However the only thing that hinders it a bit is the fact that it follows the original 2005 story to a near perfect tee. As for gameplay, weapons, and over all executing the games namesake is an incredible journey to a simpler time when games where made with love and not a needless cashgrab. If you are new to the series or just a longtime fan it's a welcome addition to a cult classic. Here's hoping it doesn't take another 15 years to journey back into the space boots of crypto. Expand

    A perfect remake. It keeps just enough to make you nostalgia, but adds enough for it to feel fresh.

    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!
