  • Summary: Godzilla: Unleashed Double Smash is a fighting game on a giant scale. The game stars the legendary Godzilla and a slew of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to ultimately save the planet from mayhem and destruction. Set in urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed's interactive 3D cityscapes, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction. Players claw, kick, stomp, throw and blast their way through the streets of major world cities in order to claim the ultimate, beastly title: King of the Monsters. In addition to a fully reinvented combat system, Godzilla: Unleashed features an innovative non-linear storyline which allows players to influence how the story unfolds through their choices within battles.

  1. Inoffensive, with samey levels and enemies, and unchallenging boss fights. [May 2008, p.75]
  2. If you're looking for some mindless monster mashing stick with the versus fight-focused PS2 or Wii versions or, better yet, revisit the arcade classic Rampage.

    None of the recent Godzilla games have been very good, but at least they were fun. Godzilla: Unleashed Double Smash cannot make this claim. It looks terrible, and reduces the King of the Monsters to a mush of no-texture polygons, then puts him in a tedious series of punching planes and kicking boats.
  4. This game makes the American remake of Godzilla look like an Oscar contender. It's an affront to not only fans of Godzilla, but fans of fun. The gameplay is uninspired, and there is no redeeming quality to make it bearable.
  5. A good idea, an imaginative tale, a scary but heart-warming hero and some lovely childhood memories are all completely wiped out by this atrocious game.
  6. Somebody let the collar off this lizard a little too soon.
  7. Everything about this game, from the simplistic graphics and the incoherent story to the lack of a workable save system and the horrible hit detection speak to a rushed effort. Even the manual is filled with errors, with the table of contents pointing to sections that don’t exist.

    A shallow, horrible looking game that loses its appeal within a half hour. The game is devoid of story and gameplay is a jumbled mess. There is no real reason to buy this game. Expand
