  • Summary: Godzilla: Unleashed is a fighting game on a giant scale, starring the legendary Godzilla and a slew of at least 20 of some of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to save the planet from mayhem and destruction, but not before causing some of their own. Set in nine urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed’s interactive 3D cityscapes, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction. The character line-up on the PlayStation 2 system features new monsters not found on the Nintendo DS and Wii versions of the game. Players fight at least 20 monsters, with the newcomers fighting alongside or against favorites from past Godzilla video games. Godzilla: Unleashed features an innovative non-linear storyline which allows players to influence how the story unfolds through their choices within battles, and a flexible multiplayer mode which supports up to four players for the ultimate city-crushing monster extravaganza.

  1. Sometimes nostalgia isn't enough.
  2. Its sole redeeming quality are the incredible number of monsters that are available in the game.
  3. 49
    Godzilla fans deserve better than this. Unleashed isn't pretty, isn't compelling, and isn't nearly as fun as stepping into the skin of giant monsters should be. Everything about the game is phoned in. That said, my four-year-old nephews have a blast with it.
  4. Godzilla Unleashed has all the makings of a good monster fighting game and none of the content
  5. Godzilla Unleashed lacks the vibrant, larger-than-life, destructive mayhem of other Godzilla titles, and there really aren't enough redeeming qualities otherwise to warrant a purchase…or even a rental.
  6. Something to avoid like nuclear waste, Godzilla: Unleashed suffers from hideous gameplay, Neolithic graphics, no depth whatsoever, and shoddy design all-round. If you want to torture somebody then buy them this for their birthday.
  7. Godzilla Unleashed is a bad game. There’s really no way around saying it.

    The unfortunate problem with Unleashed is that it's almost an exact copy of the previous Godzilla hit Save the Earth, with only a few new levels, monsters and storyline. Expand
