Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed is a remake of the franchise’s sequel that probably many of you can’t wait to get your hands on.
The remake developed by Black Forest Games is set to release on 30/08/2022 on PC, Playstation, and Xbox.
I want to mention that this was my first encounter with the franchise, but it didn’t make me enjoy the game less.
Playing the action-adventure game taught me that the aliens invading Earth are having a lot of fun. So it’s nice to see what it’s like to be on the other side for once.
However, the game also has flaws, so keep reading to learn about the pros and cons.
Story & Fun Factor
For the new players like me who haven’t got to play the original game, the main character is Crypto or Cryptosporidium-138 if you want to get technical.
Cryptosporidium-138 is a clone of the main character in Destroy All Humans, who is now dead.
Crypto is part of the Furon alien race that the Soviet Union sees as a threat because the extraterrestrials managed to infiltrate the USA government.
The adventure starts when the KGB destroys Crypto’s mothership. Playing as Crypto, who luckily wasn’t on the ship, you have to get your revenge and see what other plans the KGB has.
Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed is an open-world game with five different regions you get to explore, the first being Bay City which resembles San Francisco.
The main story is not that long, but it complements well with a lot of side missions that are pretty fun, most of them at least.
The side quests reward you with upgrade materials, so I suggest doing them to have an easier time with the story missions.
To not spoil the game for you, I’ll just tell you that the story is hilarious, like watching a parody movie.
But not just that, you’ll encounter an interesting plot twist at some point in the game.
You also have many collectibles scattered through the game’s areas, which I’m sure many of you will enjoy getting.
The weapons Crypto can wield are extremely fun to use, even the Anal Probe, or especially?
As for the remake’s difficulty, some missions can prove more challenging than others, but the good part is that you can set the difficulty as you wish, scratching the needs of either a casual or a hardcore player.
An important feature for some of you is that you can play the story in co-op. And that’s not all! You also have another two modes that you should try with a friend:
- Duel mode
- PK Tennis
What took a little of the fun factor away for me were the occasional bugs, like cars going through buildings or humans driving invisible vehicles. Nothing game-breaking, but they were there.
You can control Crypto quite well, considering you are playing a remake of a game released in 2006.
I’ve played on Xbox, with a controller, obviously, and I enjoyed the movement, especially while skating or flying with the jetpack.
Of course, there is room for improvement, but we must be satisfied with what we have.
Combat is fun, mainly because of the cool weapons; however, it still feels like an old game, which is understandable since, once again, it’s just a remake.
So, nothing too frustrating in that department to make me not enjoy the game.
Graphics & Sound
The developers did a good job with the visuals. You can really see how the graphics evolved in 16 years.
In the sound department, I enjoyed Crypto’s voice actor the most; he is amusing and fits perfectly in the role.
After finishing the game, even though I had a lot of fun, I don’t really think I will play it again, at least not soon.
However, I ended up playing some of the missions multiple times to achieve 100% and get all the rewards.
Overall, I really enjoyed Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed, and so should you, provided you don’t mind the occasional bug or the fact that the gameplay feels old. If you can go past that, the game is fun and will probably make you laugh quite often.
