Destroy All Humans! 2 (also known as Destroy All Humans! 2: Make War Not Love as seen in the title screen) is a video game for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles and is the sequel to Destroy All Humans!. It was released on October 17, 2006, in North America. It marks the last game in the series to be developed by Pandemic Studios. Two sequels were made, developed by Locomotive Games and Sandblast Games, respectively.

Plot

The game is set in 1969, 12 years after the original. The main character from Destroy All Humans!, Cryptosporidium-137, is now deceased for unknown reasons. His clone, Cryptosporidium-138 (Crypto for short), made of more pure furon DNA, is now taking his place and continuing to pose as the United States President. KGBmarker intelligence reveals that Crypto-138 is the first and only Furon to have genitalia, referred to only as "The Package". Seeing the furons as a threat to the Soviet Union, the KGB destroy the furon mothership.

Soon after, Crypto's new adventure begins. Not only must Crypto stop the KGB from destroying America, he also desires revenge for the destruction of the mothership. Crypto's commander, Orthopox 13, downloaded a copy of his consciousness into a holographic unit (called a HoloPox Unit) just before he died. The unit projects a hologram of Orthopox and possesses a copy of Pox' consciousness. After saving Bay City from nuclear annihilation at the hands of the Soviets, Crypto discovers that the KGB have fled to Albion and promptly follows, where he meets Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe, the James Bond-esque head of M16 (a parody of MI6marker), and a rogue KGB agent named Natalya Ivanova. They discover that the KGB have created a type of spore that causes humans to mutate into monsters. Eventually Ponsonby betrays Crypto, revealing he is the leader of the English branch of Majestic, Majestic Command 16. After killing Ponsonby and puzzling over his cryptic reference that the furons may not be the only alien on Earth, Crypto learns that the KGB have a base on Takoshima Island.

Arriving in Takoshima, Crypto has to rescue a man named Dr. Go from the Black Ninjas and KGB. He provides access to the KGB base hidden in the island's volcano. Inside Crypto and Natalya are addressed by the mastermind behind the spore plot, Soviet Premier Milenkov. Milenkov shows a film clip of his men using spores on a Takoshimese intern, who transforms into a giant Godzilla-like monster called "Kojira". After defeating Kojira, Crypto follows Natalya to Tunguska, home of "Project Solaris." In the USSRmarker, Crypto discovers that another alien race has crash-landed on Earth. They are the Blisk, the enemy that the Furons had thought they defeated during the Martian War. Pox realizes that the Tunguska eventmarker of 1908 was actually a downed Blisk warship crash-landing into the Tunguskan hillside, not a meteorite. After destroying the crashed Blisk warship and rescuing Natalya from a Blisk gas bubble, Crypto meets Milenkov face to face. Milenkov then retreats to his moon base, Solaris, in a Blisk shuttle.

Crypto body-snatching a human
the moon, Crypto discovers that Project Solaris is actually a Blisk superweapon designed to bombard the Earth with Blisk spores and radiation, granting the Blisk control of Earth as their new irradiated, water-logged homeworld. Using his ability to "body snatch," Crypto disguises himself as Soviet cosmonaut Leonid, the head scientist on the moon, and convinces the rest of the humans to go to war with the Blisk. Then Crypto manages to sabotage the weapon's firing mechanism. Upon doing so, Milenkov confronts Crypto. He then reveals that ever since the blisk crashed, they have been controlling the Russian government, each premier before him had been a blisk, and they were responsible for several world crises, including the Cold War. After their conversation, Milenkov leaves. Crypto and Natalya battle for their various species to save the Earth by attacking and successfully destroying the Blisk Hive with the O.M.G.W.T.F. virus Pox developed in his lab, but after the last battle, Milenkov shoots Natalya in the back the moment she was going to kiss Crypto and then Milenkov reveals his true form, a heavily-armored blisk. After defeating Milenkov, Crypto relaxes in his flying saucer while Pox appears on the video monitor, congratulating Crypto and eagerly anticipating his newly-cloned body. However, he has detected activity in the emergency cloning lab. He questions Crypto about it, then realizes that Crypto has cloned Natalya, and is extremely infuriated by this and begins yelling at him, just before Crypto abruptly shuts off the video monitor mid-sentence. Lying next to him, Natalya awakens briefly and favors Crypto with a smile and an invitation to wake her "in time for re-entry." As the game ends, Crypto leers at the player and admits to having made "a few adjustments," and sips on a martini.

Characters

In addition to the return of Crypto and Pox, the following main characters are introduced:
Crypto and Natalya
  • Natalya Ivanova - was a KGB agent who went rogue after strange things begin to happen. She allies with Crypto in order to save both their species from Milenkov and the Blisks. She is killed at the end of the game, but Crypto reclones her. It is revealed in Big Willy Unleashed that they had a son. In an in-game conversation, Pox reveals that her clone died about six years before the events of Path of the Furon due to human clones having a short lifetime.


  • Agent Ivan Oranchov - he was a commanding KGB officer, and was in charge of the KGB operations in Bay City and Albion. In a final duel with Crypto, he uses Blisk spores to transform himself into a humanoid Blisk creature, but is ultimately killed. KGB agent's thoughts sometimes contain questions such as "Why does Agent Oranchov always shout at me?", even after the Soviet spymaster has been eliminated.


  • Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe - is secretly leader of the Majestic command in Albion. He helps Crypto in two missions, but then betrays him. He is killed by Crypto after he escapes. He speaks with a posh British accent and wields an umbrella rifle. It is discovered through mind-scanning Ponsonby or listening to his speech during his final battle, that he was in love with Silhoutte from the original game.




  • Blisk - The aliens that the Furons defeated in the Martian War. Pox describes them as "brutes with large claws and withering halitosis" and the result of "a cockroach mating with a lobster." They have a single hive mind, and are attracted to radiation, as it nourishes them.


  • The KGB - A original enemies of Destroy All Humans! 2 until the Blisk are discovered. KGB commanders include Agent Oranchov, Sasha Soyisorski, Soviet Premier Milenkov, Blazitsky, Zablazitsky and Leonid. The KGB base: in Bay City is The Rock, in Albion is the abandoned tunnel network (as well as M16), in Takoshima is the volcano, in Tunguska is the large KGB Base and on the moon is Solaris. If subjected to Crypto's psychoknesis, then the KGB agents may quote "I will lease to levitate me this instance!" or "You think we cannot do this in Soviet Union?!"


  • Majestic Command, Sixteenth Sector - The British Majestic, controlled by Reginald Ponsonby-Smythe and ultimately Her Majesty. If a British Majestic agent (or Secret Agent) is manipulated by Crypto's psychoknesis, then they will quote "I bet Blofield put you up to this." or "I haven't got a lisence to levitate!"


  • Citizens - The Urbans and Hippies of Destroy All Humans! 2 that are unarmed and will flee if they spot you. Should something suspicious happen, they will investigate; citizen quotes include: "Good heavens, an alien!" (Male Albion Urban), "Like kite-ski!" (Male Tunguska Urban), "I'm flying, and not in a good way!" (Male Takoshima Urban) and "I can see my house from here!" (Female Bay City Urban).


New features

In Destroy All Humans! 2, Crypto is able to go to San Franciscomarker (Bay City), London (Albion), a Japanese island (Takoshima), Tunguska (Siberiamarker), and the Russian moon base Solaris. Crypto can now body snatch humans, using them as a disguise. In addition, new weapons are unlocked by finding data cores ejected from the mothership before it was destroyed. New saucer landing points are unlocked by completing the challenges of the ancient furon god Arkvoodle. The player is now able to call their saucer from an empty landing site in order to eliminate back tracking, and the UFO can now cloak for limited periods of time. In addition, the Abducto Beam actually abducts humans into the UFO for usage in the Gene Blender, which upgrades Crypto's abilities. Also, Destroy All Humans! 2 has a co-op multiplayer mode, so the player can play through the story mode, free roam together and minigames, such as PK Tennis and Duel, with a friend. The new "Free Love" feature enables Crypto to momentarily force his victims to groove to psychedelic music, thus making them forget they saw him. The new ability called "Mind Flash" mentally stuns everyone in the world for a brief period of time. The Jetpack has a longer lasting battery.

Reception

The game was met with generally positive reviews. Critics felt it was a solid sequel, citing "If you liked Destroy All Humans!, you'll likely be pleased and amused by this sequel". GameZone stated "The new weapons and body snatching ability just add more fun to a game with huge open worlds and the plentiful side missions." and that the "game actually supersedes the original". The AI was criticized by Team Xbox, stating "every enemy seems as brain dead as Crypto thinks they are." The game sold over 340,000 copies and had a generated revenue of $13,000,000 in North America alone. Hyper's Diak Watch commends the game for its "funny script, lots of side missions [and] well structured".
