If you own a PS2 or an Xbox, that’s more than enough reason to get hold of this game. It’s #$%&ing out of this world.
Improvements have been made this time around, but not enough to make it a truly immersive open-ended game. Mercenaries and the Grand Theft Auto series did a fantastic job of giving the players endless options for gameplay. Destroy All Humans 2 has a few side missions and collectibles, but not quite enough to escape that semi-linear feel. DAH2 is a better game than the original, but not by a substantial amount. With some more immersive gameplay, this could become a fantastic franchise.
Gleich vorweg: Innovationen oder deutlich verbesserte Grafik sollte man von Destroy all Humans! 2 nicht erwarten, das Spiel – innerhalb von 12 Monaten zusammengestrickt – ist vielmehr eine typische Fortsetzung. Heißt im Klartext: Detailverbesserungen beim Gameplay, eine neue Storyline und frische, nun frei erkundbare Level, die zudem nun auch kooperativ spielbar sind. Die wenigen Änderungen schlagen jedoch ein und heben das Spiel in Punkto Qualität ein gutes Stück nach oben. Auch beim Humor – von vielen US-Medien bemängelt – können wir nicht klagen, haben doch die zahlreichen Anspielungen auf Hippies, Kommunisten, Briten, alte Science Fiction Filme und nicht zuletzt den ersten Teil für herzhafte Lacher gesorgt. Kurz gesagt: Destroy all Humans! 2 ist ein gelungenes Actionspiel mit reichlich Humor. Wer den ersten Teil mochte, der wird auch beim zweiten Teil zugreifen können!
"Destroy All Humans! 2", basicamente, não mudou muito de um ano para cá. Se por um lado as piadas já não são tão engraçadas (mas há ótimos momentos), o progresso do game é mais solto, privilegiando a ação. O game é relativamente curto, com duração de cerca de oito horas, mas as boas missões alternativas, e a coleta de itens, aumentam bastante sua vida útil. Enfim, quem gostou do primeiro deve curtir também essa continuação. Para quem está chegando agora, é uma mostra de como transmutar com originalidade uma fórmula estabelecida, no caso, a de "Grand Theft Auto", com muita ação e humor.
So we've established that difficulty is an issue, as it was in the original; it's not always a cakewalk, but you won't really struggle to progress through the storyline. Thankfully, Destroy All Humans! 2 provides enough variety and a quirky cast of characters to make it a worthwhile purchase for fans of the first and for gamers with a taste for the distinctly original.
G4 TV: X-Play
There’s a lot to like here, and the game does a nice job of blending mindless destruction with equal parts stupid- and well-thought out humor. As Crypto edges ever closer to the game’s double-secret plot twist, War ramps up the violence and mayhem to a fever pitch until it’s all just a blur of non-stop twisted bodies and hurt feelings. In doing so, it gives the 1960s exactly what it deserves: lots and lots of free hate culminating in a fiery sendup.
In the end, Destroy All Humans! 2 removes all the annoying issues from the first game, but also feels a little too safe in certain instances. The story (except for the basic premise) feels a little tacked on and it's really the side-missions and exploration that will keep you playing. That is not to say that DAH2 is not worthy of your time, it still remains a fun romp through the sixties with the most jaded guide you could ever hope for. Crypto remains a supremely fun character and hopefully we'll get to see him again soon on next-gen hardware. A fun diversion.

Overall, Destroy All Humans! 2 is a solid, but unmemorable game. The first stood out because it featured a unique premise and sharp humor, this lacks either of those, and ends up feeling like a mere add-on pack to the first instead of its own game. There's nothing particularly bad about the game, but also nothing spectacular about it. It's simply a good game that does a lot of things right, but not better than before. As a fan of the first, I was disappointed by just how similar this is to it. Other fans of the first would be wise to wait for a price drop. There is no good reason to spend $50 on this, especially when the first can be found for $20 and packs in two B-movies as extras.
At $40, there are worse ways you could spend your money, but then again there are plenty of better ways out there as well. Destroy All Humans! 2 isn’t necessarily a bad game – it just isn’t all that great. I was hoping that laying waste on hippies, yippies and KGB agents would be a bit more fun and a lot less confining.
When it gets right down to it, Destroy All Humans! 2 is the sort of sequel that seems to exist specifically to be a sequel. It's pretty clear from the nonsensical storyline, constant self-referential humor, and general sameness of play and presentation that this game exists primarily to put another game with Crypto on store shelves. But it's a fine update of the formula, with a solid number of amusing gags and enjoyable missions that don't aim high but reach their modest goals. If you liked Destroy All Humans!, you'll likely be pleased and amused by this sequel, provided you don't expect the moon from it.
Now you people can't say I've never given you anything. If you haven't played the original, then you won't miss a thing with this title. Well, except the humor. Destroy All Humans: 2 does improve on a few things, most notably the side missions, but all in all, it's just more of the same. Find a human, probe his ass, take his body. Lather...rinse...repeat.
Suite directe du premier épisode, Destroy All Humans! 2, malgré des allures de jeu non terminé, est aussi jouissif que son ancêtre. Drôle, amusant, référentiel, il est simplement dommage que le titre ait conservé pas mal de problèmes qui n'ont, semble-t'il, pas eu le temps d'être réglés. Malgré tout, cette savoureuse farandole de blagues, de clins d'oeil et d'aliens sarcastiques vaut son pesant d'or pour qui possède une DVDthèque remplie de nanars cosmiques pleins de monstres en caoutchouc et autres scientifiques fous.
Destroy All Humans 2 is a very average action game that’s only funny when it isn’t trying to be. Vaporizing humans and terrorizing cities in a big flying saucer is still fun, but the missions are decidedly of this world. Without the charm of the original, Destroy All Humans 2 won’t be anybody’s favorite Martian.
