Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed

Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is a third-person shooter developed by Germans Black Forest Games that was published by THQ Nordic on the 30th of August. The game is available on Steam and on the PlayStation 5 console.

Crypto the alien invader is back with a license to probe and to take revenge on the KGB for blowing up the Furon mothership. It is a remake of the good old PlayStation 2 game Destroy All Humans! 2, which was released in 2006, and it is an open world action-adventure game set in the 1960’s and takes place ten years after the events of Destroy All Humans!.

Like the Destroy All Humans! remake from 2020, this one was also developed by Black Forest Games, who are mostly known by the Giana Sisters games. It features a new engine and new textures, making it look marvellous. The lighting in the game is outstanding and renders some breathtaking views while you are traversing through it.

As mentioned, Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is played from a third-person perspective and involves straightforward shooting elements, as well as some stealth. As you will progress through the game you will unlock new weapons, abilities, and vehicles. It is set through five different locations, those being Bay City, Albion, Takoshima, Tunguska, and the Solaris moon base. New areas were added for exploration in all of the locations which are diverse and unique.

Crypto has a wide arsenal of weapons, everything from plasma rifles to probing weapons that are used for… well, for going up humans’ anuses to their brains. Besides the weapons there are also various items available like your shield, jetpack and hover boots, which can all be upgraded during your playthrough.

The missions you will encounter are mostly firefighting bonanzas, but also include light stealth elements, since the humans will contact the police when you are seen by them. The missions do not take long to complete and can be finished in various techniques. There are also optional objectives in every mission that you can complete or not.

Main down-points the game has are that the missions can get boring after a while, as the blueprint of most of them is quite the same. The story could be worked on a bit more as well, and the humour that is present will not cater to all people. Other than that, the game is quite fun and features a lot of action through the open-world areas.

Oh, and you are able to play through the game’s campaign in both single-player and a two-player local split-screen co-operation mode.

You can buy Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed on Steam or the PlayStation Store for 39,99 EUR.

Review Summary Title Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed will not be enjoyed by everyone, but I bet it will be enjoyed by those who played the original more than fifteen years ago and liked it. It offers great graphics and a lot of action, so you will not get bored easily, even if the missions’ arrangement is quite repetitive.
