Excerpt: Life is full of unanswered questions, and unless you’ve had an encounter with a strange flying craft or found yourself being probed in areas you’d rather not talk about, then the existence of aliens isn’t assured, so if you haven’t encountered little spacemen before, just keep watching those skies...
Excerpt: Since Space Invaders, defending the earth against hordes of aliens has been a recurring preoccupation in video games. But how about a game where you play the sinister interstellar interloper, and mankind is your prey. Destroy All Humans!
Excerpt: I've never been one to object to violent acts in video games. Gouging out eyes with shards of glass? Acceptable pastime. Hooking lengths of chain to people's limbs? No problem. Sundering three torsos with a single swipe of a battleaxe? Fun for the whole family.
Excerpt: When watching MTV's Pimp My Ride, I always wonder how long these modded cars are going to last. Not only are they prime targets for car thieves, but they also appear to be lacking a little something under the hood.
Excerpt: You’ve got to love the 1950’s. It was a time of innocence as well as a time of mass paranoia and the source for some of the campiest tellings of science fiction ever told. Destroy All Humans has the era down pat, where instead of fighting off an alien invasion you’re actually the invader.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game features plenty of killing: killing innocents, police officers, soldiers, government agents, the president, and even cows. But the game's mischievous, playful tone defuses much of the impact of the violence.
Excerpt: Before you pop the game into your PS2, even before you crack open its case, the unique style of Destroy All Humans! is more than evident. Pandemic Studios did a fine job in conveying the sense of an "idyllic" 50's America combined with the cynicism of an invading alien culture.
Summary: Taking its inspiration from 1950's
B-Movies, THQ and Pandemic Studios' humorous Destroy All Humans! allows players
to single-handedly invade Earth. The game doesn't follow the conventions you'd
expect and actually allows you to see the invasion from the aliens' perspective.
Excerpt: This game can be easily summed up in one statement "Brainless destructive fun!" This game is by far one of the most fun brainless games out there. Right from the get go it's instant destruction. This whole game is about being and alien and destroying humans, what could be more fun than that?
Excerpt: Destroy All Humans puts you in control of a one-man alien army bent on pure human-based carnage. With a wise eye towards classic Sci-Fi B movies and a good amount of carnage-creation tools, this is one for all the SF geeks in the house.
