Save the aliens-destroy the world!
on 25 June 2005
Normally in games, you play as man, with big weapons, destroying all manner of alien, however, this game has turned the table.
You play as Crypto-Sporidium 137. He's a little annoyed, his brother, Crypto-Sporidium 136 took a trip to earth, and hasn't been back since, Therefore the Furon empire has decided to invade earth, (You'll see all of this in the introduction.) and most likely, destroy it.
Now, the game is graphically superb. Creating an atmosphere of fifties America, which is seen in the way people talk and dress. The levels include the farm, the fairground, and the white house, and more. All have been excellently created, all feeling like a world in themselves.
Now, the game allows you to follow a plot and this in itself is incredible. In one level, you must take on the form of a human, read the minds of all around to find which one has the most simple mind, and then convince them to come back to the spaceship (well hypnotize them to come back to the spaceship!) Thankfully there are also a number of side quests in each area. These include racing, to collecting enough DNA in each level. This DNA can be used to upgrade weapons you have on your spaceship and you own hand weapon.
This brings me on to my second important point. You can either engage in hand combat, OR use the spaceship to wreak havok on the inhabitants of earth! You have your death ray, abducto beam and Atomic Deconstructor, and it can be a laugh to level an entire level as you please.
So apart from all this, are the any major flaws-well, actually no, the graphics are good, the sounds and voices are hillarious, and its actually pretty funny. Its got length and side missions-what more could you want! But remember, its a 15 for a reason...
