Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed Launches; Reviews Better Than Saints Row

Today marks the release of Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed. Judging by the reviews, this return of an old brand is more successful than the comeback of Saints Row.

The release day has finally arrived for Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed, a remake of the second part of the series of humorous action games in which we play as an alien sowing destruction on Earth.

  1. The game was developed for PC , Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.
  2. On Steam the game will be unlocked in just a few hours, and on PlayStation Store even sooner. We do not know when exactly the Microsoft Store edition will launch, but it will most likely happen in a few hours as well.

A lot of reviews have already appeared online - the PC edition currently has an average rating of 72% on Metacritic. Same with the XSX/S edition, while the PS5 edition obtained 70%.

These results are worth comparing with reviews of the new Saints Row. Both games represent the return of old brands (although one is a remake and the other a reboot) and were released under the banners of publishers that are part of the Embracer group. This clash was won by Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed, earning higher marks.

Saints Row was met with a fairly cold reception. In terms of gameplay, the game is described as average, and it has lost the unique charm of previous installments. As a remake, Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed does not have the second of these problems.

One can only hope that if the developers decide to make an all-new third installment, they will not repeat the mistakes of the Saints Row reboot and preserve the brand's unique atmosphere and humor. While it is not to everyone's liking, in trying to reboot the series in pursuit of new audiences, it is easy to lose what made it popular in the first place.
