Almost 20 years after its original release, and just 3 years following a revamp of the first game in the series, Destroy All Humans 2 returns with a fresh redesign. Originally developed by Pandemic Studio, ironically enough, Black Forest Games revived Crypto back in 2020 and recent years.
Resurrecting a PS2 Classic
This remake was completely rebuilt from the ground up within Unreal Engine 4. While a variety of assets are kept from the original release of the game, its re-release has been updated with new features, improvements to the upgrade tree, an expansion on the original story, and a modern graphical polish while maintaining the original style.
Old players will experience a wave of nostalgia with this play-through of a PlayStation 2 classic. Although, some players might be sad about the lack of updated dialogue or references. A lack of variety in a few asset models alongside slightly choppy animations may also deter some fans. Hopefully, however, that won’t dissuade you from picking up this new and improved comedic adventure. Despite some of the outdated aspects of the original game, this is still an incredibly enjoyable experience for anyone who decides to pick it up.
What’s The Verdict?
Whether you’re a fan of sandbox games such as Saints Row and Just Cause, a returning space invader craving a world on which to enact your wrath, or even just a strong supporter of our alien overlords. This title may just be what you’re looking for. Destroy a variety of locations from across the globe, as a way to vicariously live out that revenge fantasy.
There’s a whole new version of a familiar planet, so go free and conquer those ants wandering around on the ground beneath you. This release is already available across a variety of platforms including PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S. A single-player-only version, however, just released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
