  • Summary: Legendary monsters battle among Earth's cities to determine the planet's fate. In Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee, you can play as Godzilla or any of his longtime rivals as they fight hand-to-hand, at close range, and with special moves. Each massive beast has different physical attributes and special projectile weapons. You'll fight in cities such as Tokyo and San Francisco--all featuring real building destruction and physics. For multiplayer fighting mayhem, you can bring three of your friends into the battle. Expand

  1. One of the best party games released on the Xbox yet. If you’ve been looking for a fun fighting game to play with some friends, or even alone, this is one to get.
  2. Each environment is fully (and gloriously) destructible and more "alive" than ever. The graphics are fantastic! Equally so for the animations.

    Not only does it absolutely trounce any of the previous Godzilla games, it's also one of the best multiplayer party games available on the Xbox.
  4. Better graphics and more modes equals better value. [May 2003, p.71]
  5. 69
    The visuals alone haven't received the facelift they should have. Skyscrapers and other assorted buildings are still boxy and flat, hi-res textures aren't applied to the proper effect, and the creatures themselves lack distinctive bump-mapping and polish.
  6. By far the best Godzilla game to date. It will, however, become quite a boring game after a short while, especially in the single-player modes.
  7. The general feel of the game is a very slow and clunky fighter – a feature that ironically does suit the whole Godzilla setting quite well, but sadly does not work for the beat-'em-up genre. Perhaps the two were never meant to meet.

    This game is awesome. Its not a twitch fighting game, you have to use your mind, and the things around you. Yea, its easy to learn, but its difficult to master. On top of that, you can play up to four players. Great party game! Expand

    Look, this is not a deep game and isn't intended to be. If you like the idea of having friends over and hurling buildings at them, don't deny yourself the pleasure. Expand

    Turdy old Monster age 99 are going to fight. This game is for old-time gamers and underground godzilla fans. I prefered senior citizen melee. It is a prefered choise for gamers age 6 (little cousins) since they need a slow paced game because the xbox controller is too big for their hands. Here comes a tail whip spanning 10 city blocks. Graphics are average and game is only usefull if you play with lot of people. Expand

    This game may be worse than the movies, it made me want to bash my head against a rock to make my self forget that I actually bought this game in the first place. Expand
