In contrast to what is currently available in the gaming business, the PS2-era of video games was characterized by bizarre and unique titles. It was a great time, and it was also the era in which the Destroy All Humans series first surfaced. Black Forest is back with a new, fancy-looking recreation of the larger and wilder sequel after redoing the series’ debut game back in 2020. Although it has some technical issues, it’s still a great throwback with an extraterrestrial concept.
For the PS2 roms game and Xbox, the first Destroy All Humans! 2 was published in 2006. It was created by Pandemic, the same company that produced the first game in the series and the first two Star Wars Battlefront games. Like the first game, DAH2 lets you take on the role of a small silver alien invader on Earth who has access to an expanding collection of odd alien weaponry and even owns a personal UFO with a potent death ray. While the previous game was set in the 1950s and largely parodied alien movies from that time period, DAH2 is set in the 1960s and widens its parodies to include additional movie genres and more widespread gags about hippies, the beginning of the cold war, and cults. Additionally, the game’s primary alien has genitalia now, and boy howdy does he love to make jokes about it.

This updated and improved version of DAH2 was created by Black Forest, just like the first Destroy All Humans remake, and is a real remake with a completely new engine, textures, and models. Furthermore, the game looks fantastic. When I wasn’t killing people while flying around the several stages of the game, I would occasionally pause and just take in the breathtaking scenery. Particularly the lighting is frequently stunning, making me think of an animated movie rather than an open-world PS2 game. Additionally, there are many small elements in the game, such as how characters leave muddy tracks after walking through mud.
However, the price for these enhanced images is high. In crowded moments especially in significant portions of cities, the game occasionally has framerate problems as well as screen tearing and hitching. It’s not impossible to play, but it does occasionally stand out.
The plot of this intergalactic adventure is that ten years have passed since the events of the first game, and the Russian KGB has finally ascertained what happened. They have attacked the Furon invaders’ mothership and foiled their plans to conquer the globe and steal human DNA in order to preserve their own species. Naturally, Crypto (the alien you control) and his boss battle the KGB while also learning more about Russia’s history of encounters with extraterrestrials as they fly across the world and visit and destroy a number of well-known locations, including San Francisco and London.

DAH2: Reprobed uses the original audio files again, similar to the first remake, making for a reasonably accurate replica. perhaps overly devoted? There are undoubtedly certain objectives and activities that resemble those in a PS2-era open-world game, which makes sense considering that this is essentially one of those games. The game even forewarns you before you begin that some jokes and conversations feel a little out of place and old in 2022. If you only want to blow up buildings with your UFO or anal probe people, you can fortunately bypass all the dialogue and cutscenes in DAH2.
While the game’s plot and overall mission structure haven’t altered, Black Forest has made significant advancements to the combat to make it seem more contemporary and responsive. The sticks respond to your movement as you would expect from any competent third-person shooter published in 2022 as you shoot with the right trigger and aim with the left trigger. As Crypto, you have access to a huge arsenal of weaponry that may be used to cause havoc, such as lightning guns, plasma rifles, anal probin’ weapons, and even a “Free Love” ray that can make everyone around you start dancing and is excellent for getting out of tight spots.
Additionally, when you explore new cities and finish missions, all of this equipment, in addition to your shield, jetpack, and hover boots, may be improved through time. Unremarkable, yes, but the advancement is enjoyable, and after a few hours, I felt more strong and badass than I had at the beginning.

Since you are an alien and people will call the police if they see you, most missions require a combination of intense firefights, light stealth, and some fun with physics. Thankfully, no objective in the game requires more than a few minutes to do, and thanks to the variety of weapons and skills you have at your disposal, missions can be finished in a variety of ways without being monotonous or uninteresting. Each mission also contains at least one additional optional goal, such as “Kill 10 cops” or “Blow up five hippy vans,” that rewards you with additional upgrading resources.
Kill every human being! 2: I don’t mind that Reprobed doesn’t completely reimagine the original sequel’s formula or alter it considerably. It was in many ways welcome to have a bizarre open-world game that isn’t too large and crammed with a map that has a million symbols. The majority of players won’t need 200 hours to complete this type of game; they’ll likely just need about 20. And the majority of that time will be spent engaging in ridiculous activities like fighting mutants or parking hippy vehicles on roofs to form cults while having fun.
Not everyone will enjoy this game, but if you miss the zany and strange PS2 originals, this is an accurate and contemporary remake of one of the greatest from that period. Just let’s hope that a later patch fixes some of the performance difficulties.
On the PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S, Destroy All Humans! 2: Reprobed is currently available.January 8, 2023 at 3:46 pm #445520
