    Simply the best monster fighting game with destructible environments. Many imitations were released, including several with Godzilla branding, but nothing ever came close to the magic of War of the Monsters. You have had the rest now try the best. WOULD BUY HD REBOOT.

  1. I am simply amazed at how cowardly these creatures become when close to death.
  2. As dee-lish as all the camp and nostalgia is, it's also very reminiscent of the source material; pretty, stylish, but ultimately rather vapid when it comes to depth.
  3. The battles themselves are chaotically free-for-all, allowing up to four monsters to grapple hand-to-hand and even rip up handy lampposts, buildings, and cars to bludgeon enemies.
