Destroy All Humans! returns to planet Earth in a surprise, remastered addition of the PlayStation classic.
Originally released in 2005, Destroy All Humans! was a semi-open world title that was praised for its comedic, B-movie style, range of weird and wacky weaponry (yes, that does include an anal probe) and catastrophic destruction right at your fingertips.
Set in the U.S. during the 1950s, it parodies the lifestyles, pop culture and politics of the human race during this time period, while the players themselves take on the role of the invaders.
You play as “Cryptosporidium 137”, a foul-mouthed alien clone tasked with the job of harvesting human DNA as well as searching for his missing ally, “Cryptosporidium 136”.
Destroy All Humans! was a great all-rounder for the PlayStation 2, full of clichés, laughs and wanton destruction and has long been a classic of its era. Bringing it back with some enhanced visuals, cloud support and new trophies not seen in the original release, is a treat for nostalgic gamers who couldn’t get enough of the original series.
It’s a basic remastering of the original. Don’t expect any massive changes to the original format, which may have some questioning the price tag.
But hey; if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Destroy All Humans! is now available for the PS4 through the PlayStation Store for £15.99.
