Destroy All Humans! on Xbox Originals

With Intellvision Lives! on Monday.

Microsoft is popping exclamatory siblings Destroy All Humans! and Intellivision Lives! on Xbox Live Originals this coming Monday, 15th September.

Destroy All Humans!, which appeared on Xbox 1 back in June 2005, puts us in the space-boots of alien invader Crypto, who embarks on a rather comic rampage across Earth after his saucer crash-lands here.

It's certainly charming, we concluded at the time, but also let down by rather bland run-and-gun (and then get in a saucer and fry people) gameplay. Our Destroy All Humans! review can tell you much more.

Incidentally, THQ has a PS3 and 360 follow-up - Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon - planned for later this year.

Intellivision Lives!, the other - and equally surprised - Xbox 1 game on offer, cobbles together a bunch of 60 games that appeared here in 1982. Good year, that.

Both games cost 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40), as do all the Xbox Originals released so far.
