  1. Destroy All Humans is dead and Path of the Furon put the final nail in the coffin. Rest in peace Crypto.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Unless something drastic happens to the series, perhaps THQ is better putting this old dog down.
  5. Avoid this one unless you’re a sucker for dickhead aliens. The Path of the Furon leads straight to disappointment.
  6. 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.
  7. Time to dig up those copies of "ET"; there's a new extraterrestrial king of the landfill. Absolutely horrible.

There is an incredible number of things you can do in the world with even more combinations of weapons and abilities. There is a lot of emergent gameplay to be had. In addition to all this, there is the innovative weapon scarring system and building destruction. No other game does anything like it. Remember, it's a $40 game so it's not going to compete with a GTA4 or some other game with a 100 milliion dollar budget. Also, you can blow up nearly everything and you can take to the air as well as the ground. Naturally some visuals will have to be compromised to allow for all this freedom and activity. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Crypto is back and he's got tons of new weapons to blow junk up! :D In this 4th installment to the DAH! series, crypto is in the late 70's now and hes ready to make a disco inferno! The developers switched during the 3rd sequal, and the new developers are good so far. The graphics are pretty good, but there are so many glitches and times when the game freezes, that it makes gamers that play all day aggrivated when they have to get up and reset the console multiple times. Crypto has many of his original weapons back, like the dislocator from the second game. His on foot arsenal includes the explosive Ion Detonator, the Zap-o-Matic, the Anal Probe, a new hippieish weapon, the Superballer, the trusty Disintigrator Ray, th new Black Hole Gun weapon which sucks up cars, people, and anything that isn't attached to the ground, the new weapon, the Venus Human Trap, which by its name, eats humans that pass close enough, but it can also eat tanks, cars, and the main antagonists for a while, the Nexo warriors, as i said earlier, the Dislocator is also back, and able to fling more efficently this time around. His old saucer was put on retirement after crypto crashed it when he was drunk, so his new spunky saucer has new features. The Death Ray is back and scarrs the land literally, The most powerful weapon is also back, the Quantum Deconstructor and is badder than ever, and there are three new weapons, the Tornadotron, which makes tornados to gobble everything up, the Seeker Drones, which are specifically designed to attack helicopters and nexo saucers, and the Plasma Cannons, which are like giant, super powered galting guns that demolish buildings and fling cars into the air. Overall, the plot is pretty good and the action keeps you on your toes, there are lots of items to collect, and then there are the weapon upgrades, which will have you killing thousands of humans for a week or two, but after everything, its just nice to see the citys crumble. ;) Expand

    This is painful to write. This game is decent. The graphics are an aquired taste. The story is lackluster. The actual gameplay is average.This is painful to write. This game is decent. The graphics are an aquired taste. The story is lackluster. The actual gameplay is average. There is nothing special in that department. What frustrates me is that Destroy All Humans 1&2 were both good, and they ran on last gen tech! Why the developers didn't go up instead of average boggles my mind completely. Expand

    The game play isn't all that good, actually it feels like a rip off from the PS2 Destroy all Humans 2 but somehow fail to be a decent game,The game play isn't all that good, actually it feels like a rip off from the PS2 Destroy all Humans 2 but somehow fail to be a decent game, the dialog is out of sync with the animation, the game overall feels like a mix of the first and second game done badly. Honestly the reason I finished it was to see the story line and that wasn't even all that good.

    The only good thing about this one was that you get new weapons and powers and that they still let you level an entire city.

    What a way to end the series by taking a massive dump on it with the last game just being an absolute bore vest. I'm not sure why butWhat a way to end the series by taking a massive dump on it with the last game just being an absolute bore vest. I'm not sure why but metacritic says the PS3 version was canceled which is strange because that's how I played it but none the less THQ ruined Something that was perfectly fine for the ps2 & xbox But atleast the first & second are coming on the PS4.
