PS4 Review: Destroy All Humans!

Crypto gets a 2020 remake, but is it as fun as we remember?

This is your chance to experience the other side of an alien invasion. Take on the role of alien Cryptosporidium 137 and terrorize the people of Earth to harvest their DNA in the most brazen action-adventure you’ve ever played. Take over all of humanity using a variety of alien weaponry on land or in the air.

I loved the original Destroy All Humans games and for those who own a PS4, you can actually download the first two games as PS2 Classics from the PS Store complete with trophy lists to boot. For those looking for a shiner updated version of the original, look no further than 2020’s remake of Destroy All Humans.

The remake is true to the original in design, but it has had obvious improvements made to its visuals and gameplay through QoL changes. The original was a blast, but now it looks and handles so much better and while it may have aged overall, it’s still a blast and makes me want them to either remake the second game or make an entirely new entry. Will either happen? I wouldn’t be surprised if both do at some point.

My only criticisms of the remake are that the load times can be quite long, and performance can take a bit of a knock at times, but not so much that it becomes game-breaking. The voice-acting and soundtrack remain the same as the original, which isn’t such a bad thing since the dialogue is hilarious.

The Verdict

The original Destroy All Humans was a blast and this improves it in a ton of ways, while staying true to the original. You can’t really ask for more than that from a remake.

Score: 8.5
