  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. It's not just the best Godzilla game ever, it's just a great game, period.
  3. Each environment is fully (and gloriously) destructible and more "alive" than ever. The graphics are fantastic! Equally so for the animations.
  4. One of the most enjoyable multiplayer games on Xbox, and is probably the best arena-party fighting game on the system.
  5. 85
    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.
  6. Watching the beautifully rendered Godzilla lurch around the screen at your every command is a wonderful experience and the game plays as if the staff were all huge fans of all-night Godzilla-thons.
  7. 80
    Some may be put off by the somewhat sluggish controls, which make you feel as if you’re actually manipulating a towering behemoth, but the rumble adds a nice effect whenever you’re struck or take a nasty spill.
  8. Combat in G:DAMM is both slow and simple when compared to smooth, combo-heavy fighters like "Tekken" or "Street Fighter." Giant monsters can't be bothered with fancy combos, juggles, reversals, or counters. [May 2003, p.80]
  9. Like the movies, this game incarnation doesn't try to excel at anything except making its monsters attractively cheesy and the gameplay decently exciting. [June 2003, p.113]
