The cult classic PlayStation 2 game Destroy All Humans! has been remastered and is now available to download on PS4 for $19.99. If, like me, you never got the chance to play this when it originally released, now is the perfect time to jump on the bandwagon and see what the hype is all about.
In case you have no idea what Destroy All Humans! is about, you play as Crypto, an alien who is both attempting to harvest as much human DNA as he can (yay for anal-probing!) and to save a fellow member of the Furon alien species from the U.S. Army. As Crypto, you can utilize both your UFO and the weapons you carry on your person.
The flying saucer has a Death Ray that allows you to burn those annoying humans and everything they care about, an Abducto Beam that can lift up those puny little people and throw them, a Quantum Destructor which plants radioactive bombs that destroy everything in it’s path, and the Sonic Boom, which launches a bomb that explodes on contact. Crypto himself is well-armed, though. He has his handy-dandy anal probe to collect all of that juicy DNA you need to gather, the Zap-O-Matic, which emits an electric charge (hence the name), a Disintegrator Ray that melts those pesky humans’ skin and organs into an ashy mess, and the Ion Detonatorm which is basically an RPG.
That’s not all, though. Crypto can also utilize “HoloBob”, a psychokinetic ability which allows him to take on the appearance of a human, and he also the talent of PK, or PsychoKinesis, which lets Crypto move objects with his mind.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sold. Bring on the cow mutilation and anal probing!
