Destroy All Humans! is an adventure game series that parodies Cold War-era alien invasion films. With open-world like a bit like Grand Theft Auto, you play the alien Crypto, tasked to gather DNA from humans and explore the open-world levels to do this. As you do this you discover a story about what happened to previous clones.

You are equipped with vast array of alien weapons and technology. You also have superhuman powers such as psychokinetic powers and the ability to disguise himself as humans and can use a jetpack to quickly navigate the environment. There are six sandbox locations which can be explored freely. Each location offers unique challenges for players to complete.
  • Destroy All Humans! (2005) on Xbox and PS2
  • Destroy All Humans! 2 (2007) on Xbox and PS2
  • Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed (2008) on Wii
  • Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon (2009) On Xbox 360
  • Destroy All Humans! (2020) on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4

The new game is a remake of the first Destroy All Humans! from 2005 that reboots the series. It modernizes gameplay and enhances most aspects of the game. Crypto’s legendary weapons cache, from the Anal Probe and Abducto Beam to Psychokinesis and Teslatastic Electricity, is all in there.
