THQ's angry alien antagonist Crypto makes his PlayStation 3 debut in Path of the Furon. Set in the "burn, baby, burn" 1970s, the game offers five parody-packed areas to conquer, each inspired by real-world locales like Las Vegas, Hollywood, Hong Kong, and Paris. While humans must be eradicated at all costs, Crypto will also deal with a mysterious new threat to his Furon brethren. After seeking spiritual guidance from an alien Kung Fu master, Crypto prepares for his biggest, most irreverent battle yet.
Over the course of multiple missions, Crypto will engage enemies on the ground and through the air on board his flying saucer. Entire buildings can even be razed, offering plenty of opportunities to snatch fleeing people for DNA harvesting. Returning weapons include the ion detonator, anal probe, and disintegrator ray. New devices range from the "Venus human trap," which spawns a giant plant to gobble up nearby gawkers, to the black hole gun, which automatically sucks enemies into a dark void.
Added psychokinetic powers consist of the PK magnet, which has Crypto attracting multiple humans, and the temporal fist, allowing Crypto to stop and then resume time after manipulating objects. The UFO also features a few upgrades, sporting enhancements like the "tornadotron," an analog-controlled tornado launcher, along with the usual assortment of death rays, plasma cannons, seeker missiles, and "quantum deconstructors."
