Destroy All Humans!

I picked up Destroy All Humans! on Wednesday. Normally, I would spent a bit of time talking about a game, but this game is very simple to review, even after two hours. The concept of playing an alien in a B-movie satire is a wonderful idea, and the presentation, writing, and voice-acting are all absolutely first-rate. It's just about perfect until you actually start playing the game, and unfortunately the gameplay just isn't nearly as fun.

This game is getting roughly 80's in reviews, and I'll tell you exactly how it gets there--a 10 for presentation and a 6 for gameplay. Average them together.

This is still a wonderful concept, and I hope that games like this keep getting made. We need more B-movie spoofs and fewer first-person WWII shooters.
