  1. Destroy All Humans is dead and Path of the Furon put the final nail in the coffin. Rest in peace Crypto.
  2. It's just more of the same, but worse. [Mar 2009, p.76]
  3. The game feels like it exhausted all its ideas and is recycling the weakest missions from past games. In other words, Path of the Furon is a lackluster game with not much to offer those who enjoyed Crypto’s earlier adventures.
  4. While the game packs some potential, the constant barrage of technical glitches renders it all but unplayable and leave it feeling like an unfinished work that was rushed to the shelves a month or two too soon.
  5. The sad decline of the Destroy All Humans franchise is a minor tragedy, because the core idea here is fantastic. [Feb 2009, p.85]
  6. Here, you’ll find little beyond groaners, pedestrian prattle, and underdeveloped monotony. Find another path to walk.
  7. Repetitive and uninspired missions abound as do glitches that can make completing missions more difficult or even impossible without reloading. The lack of a co-op mode for the campaign is also a huge letdown.
  8. The strongest part of the game…and, that said, it’s not all that strong either, with the weak elements poisoning what should have been more fun.
  9. Avoid taking this Path and track down the original Destroy all Humans instead. It's more fun and most importantly, cheaper.
  10. If you enjoy tedious objectives, racially insensitive humor, and ugly graphics, the latest Destroy All Humans is right up your alley.

    As much as it pains me to say this, THQ needs to put this series out to pasture. The franchise has been steadily declining since Pandemic let go of the reigns. Unless they're willing to really concentrate on making a quality game worthy of the "next gen" tag, I think it's time for Crypto to phone home.
  12. 40
    The story is surprisingly lengthy and more compelling than most video game stories, but it overdoes things with far too many low-brow jokes, childish innuendos and absurd parodies. Chances are you’ll find yourself laughing harder at the deplorable number of technical issues that plague the game than the actual jokes.
  13. The game tries too hard to be funny and to clever and misses a few important things like pacing, dialog, and fun. There are some cool things buried in the game but you have to look really hard to find them.
  14. Unless something drastic happens to the series, perhaps THQ is better putting this old dog down.
  15. This is a series that probably needs to be retired, because the joke isn’t funny anymore. [Feb 2009, p.89]
  16. Avoid this one unless you’re a sucker for dickhead aliens. The Path of the Furon leads straight to disappointment.
  17. One to avoid like Crypto's anal probe. [Mar 2009, p.93]

    Skip this game. It looks terrible, the concept is stale, the storyline is lazy and full of racial stereotypes, and it feels like an unfinished idea.
  19. For those who can look past the game’s flaws there are a few hours of mindless destruction and anal-probing to be had here, but only if you’ve exhausted every other game out there.
  20. Destroy All Humans is, at best, a mediocre exercise in boredom and at worst, a glitchy mess of incompetent design. It's lazy, it's dull and it's hideous to look at. Clearly rushed out in time for the holidays, you will effectively be abusing a loved one if you give them this as a holiday gift.
  21. Path of the Furon is, by far, the worst game in the Destroy All Humans franchise. Technically very flawed, with a very bad gameplay. We can't understand how destruction can be so boring and unappealing, but that's what this game has to offer. Better let the franchise die.
  22. 30
    Say what you will about Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon's shoddy graphics, lame script and bad physics -- when you throw it in the trash, it at least lands inside of the can instead of embedding itself in the wall.
  23. 25
    Some will likely fight the flaws for another chance to terrorize their '70s-era brethren, but if the name "Crypto" doesn't bring to mind a litany of past quips, Furon will simply seem like an out-of-touch, thoroughly unpolished romp through mediocrity.
  24. It's as if Pandemic's once shiny, happy puppy grew old and tired, as is the way of things, but then instead of being put down was handed over to a bunch of tramps. Who shaved all its hair off and fed it on Tesco Value Pilsner and let it get mange. It's time for THQ to get the shotgun.
  25. The Destroy All Humans! franchise goes out with a whimper not a bang in this disgracefully poor sequel.
  26. Bad. Terrible. Horrendous. There's so many negative words to describe this flawed game that I could spend an eternity naming them. Do yourself a favor and pass this up.
  27. Time to dig up those copies of "ET"; there's a new extraterrestrial king of the landfill. Absolutely horrible.

    I bought this only because i wanted to experience the sandbox gameplay and the cool cutscenes. but the rest of the game isn't so good. the missions are okay but some of them like the 1st level of sunnywood are really hard to complete and if you quit the game and start again, you will have to start from the beginning of the level again! you can't quit a mission if it's not completed, which means you will be trying to get off that part of the game so you can explore las paradiso and the other locations. overall, worth medium amounts of money, it has an alien with a funny accent, weird telekinesis powers, brilliant sandbox gameplay and mediocre missions.

    I believe everyone is harsh to this game. Sure the graphics are awful and the story line isn't the best the thing that makes this game shine is the ability to free roam a city and cause havoc. The best bit is the multiple cities allowing for more fun. Add being able to use the saucer in free roam and you have a free roaming experience as good as GTA's. I would love to see a sequel made by the developers of Saints Row because this game isn't meant to be taken seriously and with the extra help the game would be perfect Full Review »
