Destroy All Humans

Destroy all Humans is one of those fun games that doesn't really take itself too seriously and takes a healthy dose of aliens and mixes it with that extraordinary genre of 1950's B movies. The game is best described at Mars Attack but rather than being from a human perspective, gamers get to play the bad guys and that involves flying saucers, ray guns and lots of probing.

Gamers get to play the role of Crypto Sporidum who is on a mission to investigate his predecessors disappearance on Earth when his ship crashed many years ago. Unfortunately for Crypto, his predecessor has been captured by the humans who have been performing hideous experiments on the alien and now it is up to Crypto to rescue him... or what's left of him.

Crypto the alien has three basic weapons at his disposal that include a gun, psychic powers and his trusty flying saucer. Each of his weapons can be upgraded, the gun can be modified into a number of weapons from a grenade launcher to a probing device that can also fire out electricity to fry any human in sight. Every time you encounter one of the games bosses you will revert back to the flying saucer. The weapons in the flying saucer are pretty special and far more powerful than the other weapons. The unfortunate thing is, the gameplay in Destroy all Humans is pretty average and quite basic. You will spend loads of time blasting humans and the reminder of time in the saucer.

Graphically, Destroy all Humans features the same tacky special effects that you would expect to see in those 1950 movies and it's almost as if the game has actually been taken from that genre. The unfortunately aspect of the graphics is the poor frame rate and the magical buildings that appear out of nowhere, however with that said, fortunately the character models in the game are quite impressive, especially Crypto himself who is extremely reminiscent of a grey alien.

As with the graphics, the audio contains that same tacky 1950's feel to it with cheesy voices and sound effects taken out of the worst science fiction movie of that area. Match that with a spooky soundtrack and you have one "B" grading sounding game... which is good!

In conclusion, Destroy all Humans is a quaint game that would probably interest the younger generation of gamers as the game does unfortunately become slightly repetitive. With graphics and sound that would impressive any 1950's B movie maker, Destroy all Humans is one of those action/arcade games that is unfortunately missing that vital element... addictive gameplay.
