BOSTON – Nostalgia is a very tricky thing. Was that game from a decade ago really great, or was it just the right experience at the right time? THQ Nordic is arguably tempting fate by remaking two fan-favorite games from the 2000s: Destroy All Humans and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. When these games first came out, fans and critics received them politely. But each game garnered passionate fans, who couldn’t be more excited to see the titles get a second chance.

I went hands-on with both games at PAX East 2020, and it was actually my first experience with either title. The good news is that both games look solid, whether or not you’re an existing fan. And the better news is that each game has a little bit of new content in addition to better graphics and tighter gameplay.
