An original take on the shooting game and a subversive take on US paranoia executed with character and style. Destroy All Humans is hard not to enjoy.
2) Review excerpts
Playing as Crypto, a psychopathic alien with contempt for all mankind ("pea-brained scum!") who's ordered about by the more strategically minded but no less disdainful Pox, your mission is threefold: Find out what happened to a comrade who crashed at 'Rockwell', harvest the DNA and then wreak contemptuous revenge on the pathetic humanoids.
DAH starts out as it means to go on, with a hilarious tutorial involving cow-tossing, extracting farmhand brains and using your flying saucer to burst buildings.
Missions make use of a wide range of these extra-terrestrial abilities...Missions revolve around recovering bits of ships, impersonating and controlling increasingly influential specimens of the human hierarchy and flat-out destruction...
...Letting you loose in the saucer is awesome. In addition to the death ray, you have a couple of wide-spread missile attacks and an 'abductor beam' with which you can pick up vehicles and throw them about.
Buildings crumble beautifully while you weave about the sky avoiding anti-aircraft guns and vicious robots...
...For all the charm here there's no escaping the fact that it's basically a shooter with stealth and mind-control elements.
The admittedly cracking plot-driven action makes up only a very short part of this game and DAH does provide enormous levels to explore outside of the main storyline but it doesn't really offer enough to fully compensate for the Campaign mode's brevity.
If you're going to go all out, explore every nook and cranny and complete all the side-missions then the lifespan will increase dramatically. But what makes DAH great is the biting wit and OTT action.
It's another very strong title from Pandemic and well worth a play. Believe it.
