Destroy All Humans – A Great Remake Of A Fun, Unfunny Game (Jimpressions)




Destroy All Humans is a good laugh, though it fails when it tries to make you actually laugh. An entertaining sandbox of alien weapons and flying saucers has been improved with this 2020 remake’s welcome overhauls.

Hellpoint, however, is a mediocre and rubbish videogame. Just saying.

    “LITTLE GREEN MEN!”
    “I’m not green!”

  3. Killer clowns from out of space theme nice.

  4. Draconis Eltanin

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space, such a Man of Culture!!

    Sectoids be lookin’ fine in XCOM: Chimera Squad

  6. I just hope they remake the second destroy all humans, I thought it was just a better experience overall. The plot was more appealing, the weapons were better and going to locations around the world was just more interesting.

  7. I totally agree with the “support the devs” stuff when we’re talking about long-lived games with free updates. Day 1 DLC though, that’s just greed.

  8. The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction wasn’t Pandemic. It was Radical Entertainment.

  9. Shade's Insane Chamber

    One of my favorite games ever got a Remake?

    *YES.*

  10. Nicholas Proudman

    I fell in love with this game as soon as I realized I was going to be constantly commentated on by Invader Zim.

  11. Reminds me of when I’d go over to a neighbour’s place to play this game ’cause my parents didn’t want me playing it at the time.
    That tongue-in-cheek guilty pleasure kind of game that gets more and more outdated as time passes, and I have a soft spot for the absurdity of it.
    I kinda like how a lot of the PS2 era games I never got to own back then are being remastered and remade.

  12. The Unheard Voice

    I do like that many games are actually getting “Remakes” instead of just an “HD Remaster”

  13. I remember DAH 2 being good. You fight godzilla, and become the Head of a ninja clan in the Japan level.

  14. Um actually, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was developed by Radical Entertainment. They also developed the Prototype games and some of Crash Bandicoot games most notably Crash Tag Team Racing
    While Pandemic is known for making The Saboteur as you mentioned, Mercenaries, and the original Star Wars: Battlefront games.
    Sorry, but not really XP, love the show, Jim.

  15. Disagree with the ‘endless communist blaming parody’ being a bad thing. From what I remember, but keep in mind I was like 12 the last time I played this game, the whole point of that parody reoccuring was that they commenting on how supposedly brainwashed Americans were during that era. I clearly remember, as the game progresses people start calling you a communist when they see your alien form. I thought it was funny and clever when I was a kid, I don’t think it needs to be much more highbrow than that for what it is.

  16. buy DLC to support the devs*

    *all profits go towards the publisher. developers do not receive commission from DLC sold. any support towards developers is purely coincidental. after a period of crunch (6 months to the entire duration of the project) developers may be subjected to mass layoffs after they’ve served their use. studios may be skeleton staffed after product’s release. developers are expendable sacrifices to Mammon.

  17. Come on, Jim. I can see why you’d think all the J. Edgar Hoover jokes haven’t aged well, but the anal probe?

    That’s a staple bit of nonsense alien lore.

  18. I’m older than you Jim, and Invader Zim was not after anyone’s time.

  19. “Not too fond of the sequels.”
    But everyone and their mother says 2 is the best one.

  20. I’m really glad they didn’t gut the humor of the game to satisfy modern snowflakes. Meanwhile Blizzard removes voice lines from units because they didn’t want a joke that was perfectly fine in 2001 to offend someone today. It’s pathetic and 1 of the 100 or so reasons I didn’t buy WC 3 reforge.
