  1. It has been a long time since I've had so much fun with a video game... Love him or hate him, Crypto's intense hatred for our race and his willingness to fail missions just to !&%$@#* off his leader makes him this year's iconic character.
  2. Though the gameplay in general consists of nothing drastically new, the style and narrative flair that oozes from this game really do deserve attention from the gaming public.

    Talk about a game that took me totally by surprise. Destroy All Humans! is one of the most enjoyable experiences to come down the pipeline in awhile.

    Makes destroying humans fun with an original setting, enjoyable alien arsenal, and cleverly designed missions. Its sense of humor may falter once in a while, and content freaks will definitely find the game on the short side.
  5. And while the gameplay doesn't really do anything especially remarkable, and the adventure is unfortunately quite short, Destroy All Humans! shows such enthusiasm for its thematic inspiration that you can't help but at least appreciate what it tries to do.
  6. The concept is pure gold, and much of it works beautifully. We hope this becomes a series; a sequel that kept all the dark humor and cool powers, but explored and civilized its gameplay could utterly dominate us, and we wouldn't mind one bit.

    Uninspired visuals, disgustingly easy gameplay, and a complete lack of any real motivation to play the game awaits any who dare purchase this title. It is tedious and boring at every level.

    With limited weaponry, repetitive missions, and sometimes over-use of sci-fi B-movie schtick, it would seem that Destroy All Humans! would be With limited weaponry, repetitive missions, and sometimes over-use of sci-fi B-movie schtick, it would seem that Destroy All Humans! would be headed for iminent doom...however, there is just no denying the fun in picking up something with your mind powers and slamming it to hell!! I hated that the cache of cool alien weapons didn't even reach ten, but the abducto-beam attached to your saucer has to be the guiltiest pleasure in recent game history. While it is fun destroying the games redneck laden, communist-paranoid towns, they are all way to small, and you feel jilted that there isn't more to disintegrate. Crypto's psychic powers are the saving grace of this game, as it is endlessly fun picking up cars, people, etc. and giving them a hefty fling into the blue. The Holobob ability is cool too, but it is very annoying having to scan people's minds, and listening to their thoughts which range from the funny.- "I need to take another valium", to the stupid - "Where did I put my kids again?". The DNA collecting for upgrades gives an RPG element that wasn't really needed, but back in the mothership's archives, there all oodles of unlockables including up to 30 minute long clips of old sci-fi films. I was expecting a lot more, but all-in-all I wasn't disappointed.....7 out of 10 Expand

Definitely not for children. Expand
