  1. A good fun game for a while, but the short story mode lets it down a little bit.
  2. It's fun to play and it captures the spirit of giant fighting monsters really well.
  3. Nintendo Power

    Select from six famous giants from the world of Godzilla and take on a field of other bizarre beasts. [Jan 2003, p.174]
  4. An arcade battle game that lacks depth, but does bring some nice characters to the program.
  5. Pocket Games

    It may be too simple for some, but rubber monster fans will eat it up. [Spring 2003, p.33]
  6. AceGamez

    It's above average and makes a change to the rest of the fighters, with its massive monsters destroying cities as they fight, but its bound to get lost amongst the more appealing games in the genre.

    Looks fantastic as a GBA title, but in terms of gameplay there just isn't a whole lot to do.
  8. Game Informer

    A sub-par fighting game whose action plods along with the raging speed of an awards show. [May 2003, p.94]

    For the GBA, 'Zilla should have been planned as a no-nonsense 2D beat-'em-up. This just isn't fun. [May 2003, p.63]
  10. 35
    The game isn't deep enough to offer anything else more complex than a block-and-return-punch style of combat.
  11. One big, kaiju-sized lump of crap. The monster selection is crap, the gameplay is crap, the audio is crap, but the graphical presentation is fairly good. So, does that sound like a game you would enjoy?
  12. 30
    Poor graphics and animations, a tear-jerkingly simple fighting system, painful bonus rounds, and one of the worst end-boss encounters ever put to pixel.
  13. 20
    No matter which monster you pick, you're in for a set of eight disappointingly quick battles.

    The game practically defines stupid fun, whether you're playing it to pass a few hours on a bus or just for the joy of being Godzilla. The game practically defines stupid fun, whether you're playing it to pass a few hours on a bus or just for the joy of being Godzilla. However, if you're playing it for the latter, let it be known that there are much better choices out there. Full Review »
