  1. It is a marked improvement to the formula, but gamers turned off by the slow pace or average execution are encouraged to look elsewhere.
  2. 70
    If it had been afforded a little more finesse (especially regarding the Challenges) and a little more authentic Godzilla flavor, it'd be even sweeter.
  3. If you take it at face value and realise that it is a simple game that provides an element of fun especially in 2-player mode you wont be disappointed.
  4. 65
    There's barely anything that's new and even the online addition barely makes this aging game look any better.
  5. For those concerned with the legitimacy of the game, Godzilla: StE has the full backing of Toho behind it. This means that all of your beloved monster calls are authentic and have been simulated to the best of Pipeworks' ability.
  6. Hardcore Godzilla fans will appreciate seeing the decent renderings of some of their favorite monsters here, but they're unlikely to be terribly impressed by the action itself.
  7. 60
    Outside of diehard Godzilla fans, no one really needs to bother with Save the Earth in the first place.
  8. A sloppy fighting game that may be good for a few laughs and nothing more.

    A monstrous letdown. [Dec 2004, p.165]
  10. 60
    This sequel boasts larger battle arenas, including a surprisingly convincing New York City.
  11. Houses shake and crumble but certainly not in a convincing manor. The area is scattered with objects that can be picked up but when you take a look around, the buildings and other objects you really want to throw, simply refuse to budge.
  12. Don't bother renting or buying this game if you're only mildly interested in the Godzilla concept, felt the previous game sucked, or consider yourself a fighting game snob. The best thing about Godzilla: Save The Earth is that Godzilla is in it.

    Gamers weaned on faster smackdowns and who aren't turned on by the idea of a showdown between Megalon and Destoroyah should proceed with caution. [Holiday 2004, p.106]
