For years, primitive Earth beings have been destroying hordes of alien invaders, all in the name of interactive entertainment. THQ and Pandemic's latest puts the boot firmly on the other foot. Assume the alien mantle of 'Crypto' (full name Cryptosprodium-137), a scout for the invaders known as the Furons, who is undertaking reconnaissance and making initial preparations for conquering our planet, in this highly entertaining third-'person' adventure.
Your mission is to infiltrate the human populace, assume control of them, harvest their brain stems and, ultimately, destroy them. Armed with an array of intergalactic weaponry, including the Ion Detonator, the Zap-o-Matic, the Sonic Boom, and the Quantum Deconstructor, Crypto can exterminate, obliterate and disintegrate humans with shocking ease.
Should a more discreet approach be required, Crypto has a variety of other means by which to subdue and manipulate homo sapiens. He's able to hypnotise, mind-read, body snatch, and levitate the feeble earthlings. Should a less tactful approach be required, Cryo can always take to his UFO to wreak large-scale havoc on humankind's cities.
The game's conspiracy-laden plot is packed with popular sci-fi references, with regular nods to the likes of Men In Black and The Twilight Zone, making for one of the most entertaining alien invasions on PS2 to date.
