Destroy All Humans!
Top Critic Average
This remake successfully preserves the Destroy All Humans experience, regardless of whether it's fun or funny today
A straight port from 2005, Destroy All Humans! is not pretty to look at, but the writing has held up well over the last decade. That said, nostalgia can’t fix the repetitive gameplay of Destroy All Humans!, and technical glitches mar the fun on tap. If you want a trip down memory lane, you might catch this on a sale, but it’s hardly a must-have in its current technical state and price point.
Although it will seem short for most players, the title manages to shine thanks to its very cartoonish artistic direction as well as its crazy, characteristic humor.

Destroy All Humans! Is still a fun game in 2020.
To say that the game feels like a relic from a different age would be an understatement.
It may be a bit of a stretch to see if any game holds up after 15 years, but Destroy All Humans! is still a mindless romp of manic mass destruction that excels in the replayability department. A brilliantly polished slice of nostalgia, Destroy All Humans! knows exactly where to focus its energies with its silly story, updated gameplay and a graphical overhaul that is light-years ahead of the original invasion.
Destroy Al Humans! is what the original title was 15 years ago, but losing the surprise factor. It's still as much fun as it was originally, but it won't surprise you.

Regardless of the lack of new content, this game was and still is a seriously funny, perhaps underrated title from the PS2 era. The gameplay still feels solid on a fancy new controller, and it’s always going to be an interesting premise, in this case executed well. If you’re looking for a nostalgic way to pass the time, I’d like to think this is the game for you.
Destroy All Humans! is never better than when you're carrying out the remit of the game's title. When you're doing stealth missions, it's not nearly as fun. As far as its remake credentials are concerned, meanwhile, this is a perfectly solid, serviceable piece of entertainment, if somewhat unremarkable. That said, if you lapped up Destroy All Humans! fifteen years ago, you'll no doubt be more than happy to do it all over again.
All in all, Destroy All Humans! is a competent remake featuring revamped visuals and a unique premise that will surprise newcomers. The only thing holding this remake down though is boring missions and outdated gameplay mechanics.
