I'm currently playing Destroy All Humans on PlayStation 4.

It's just a straight port of the PS2 version (but with trophy support and upscaled graphics) which I had rented way back in 2005 but never got to finish. What I remember most about the game originally was the TV commercials for it. I liked (and still like) the 1950's sci-fi theme they were going for. It's one of the only things left of the game I enjoyed.

In the end, it ended up being just a so-so game...in 2017. I kinda was enjoying it until I reached the 8th or 9th mission (out of 22 I think) and then was told I needed to collect more DNA to unlock the next mission, so that meant I had to replay older levels and do side missions to grind for crap. That made me start enjoying the game a little less. I'm of the opinion that side quests should always be optional and I don't like when you're forced to play them if you don't want to.
They want $20 for this on PSN but hopefully you were lucky enough to get it dirt cheap in the humble bundle they did, because it isn't worth anywhere near $20. It's a PS2-era game and that's exactly what it looks and feels like and hasn't aged well enough.

I haven't decided if I'm going to beat this game yet, but if I do, it's because I had to force myself to do it. That's something I shouldn't be doing when I have way better games like Super Mario Odyssey to finish up.
