As Godzilla players will trample and lay waste to cities and environments with the goal of taking out each area’s Energy Generator while collecting as much G-Energy as possible. The G-Energy can then be used to power-up Godzilla, increasing both his physical size as well as his offensive and defensive skills.
    The game will also allow players to utilize a dynamic Movie-Style Camera Angle System, delivering the most epic camera angles from which to destroy both a multitude of locations as well as classic enemies such as Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla.

    It’s absolutely rough around the edges, but there’s some fun to be had here.

    The game is littered with fan service and was clearly made by people who love the property. In a way, that’s what makes it so frustrating.

    All in all, there may not be enough substance for a gamer to really stick around and play the game more than a few times in curiosity.

    Its poor graphics, repetitive missions and awful controls make this Godzilla a bad videogame.

    While it does have a lot of fan service, it really doesn’t have much else besides clunky gameplay, horrible visuals, and repetitive gameplay.

    Bumbling combat, laughable visuals, and terribly overpriced.

    You would think a game in which you can pimp-slap a moth as a 40ft-tall garbage monster couldn’t possibly be that bad. You would, however, be wrong.

This game was developed to correlate movement, visual gameplay, roster, and mechanics to that of the movies so thoroughly that it makes you think of how unauthentic previous Godzilla "fighter" games (Save the Earth, Unleashed..) were compared to this. This is the Godzilla movies..in a game. His interactions with the environment, encounters with other monsters, and sluggish movement all give you that authentic feel of what Godzilla should be in game. The only downside would be graphics ( which aren't terrible for a PS3 port ), for the power PS4 holds the graphics could have definitely been better. Beside that, A+ in my book. Expand

    I'm writing this review after destroying a city as King Ghidorah, flying and blasting buildings apart with my beams then stomping Battra whenI'm writing this review after destroying a city as King Ghidorah, flying and blasting buildings apart with my beams then stomping Battra when he appeared. Destroy All Monsters, Save the Earth, Unleashed all had mixed reviews from critics. But fans of Godzilla, like me, enjoyed them for countless hours. This Ps4 title is no different.

    I'm not sure why people expected a AAA budget game and thats why they're getting their panties in a knot. I'm stomping around destroying buildings, smacking other kaiju and having fun with decent graphics and good sound. What's more to love? As someone who wished that Destroy All Monsters and Save the Earth on the Xbox had more of a destruction focus, I feel like this complements that well. It's not a fighter like them but a monster rampage simulator. Exactly what I always wanted.

    Main point? Come in with a love of destroying buildings and rampaging through Tokyo and you won't be disappointed. If you come in expecting a heart wrenching monster opera crossed with a fighting game, you'd best look elsewhere.

Sure the game suffers fromAfter playing for about three hours, I can safely say that this game is only garbage if you look too hard at it. Sure the game suffers from some issues with difficulty at the beginning, but the game does not punish you for going the easy route. For all that it's worth it certainly simulates what it's like from the monster's point of view, just destroy whatever is in your way. Tank controls on it could be better, but this is probably the first time Natsume (developers of Harvest Moon and Abadox) has programmed a game of this magnitude. It is simplistic and kind of repetitive yet stays true to the Godzilla playstyle: slow and lumbering, yet unaware of gunfire. I'm only guessing this, but they may have just forgot to put in a life meter for Godzilla because he regenerates from near death damage so quickly. Overall I'd say that the game is fun for what it is and is quite aware of how gimmicky it is. 8/10 Expand

I'm a pretty huge fan for Godzilla if I do say so myself, so I was curious on hearing of a new Godzilla game. I hadn't played one in many years, Godzilla saves the earth being the last I had. I remember enjoying that game pretty fairly. Not that great, not that bad. But this, this game slaps you across the face and then pukes on you. A crappy ps3 port from Japan, the game looks disgustingly outdated and it's online functionality is on par with throwing your router out the damn window and then attempting to stream on Twitch. Stay far away from this disgusting thing. If it weren't for the fact that it functioned and had some of my favorite monsters in it, it would be even lower than a three. Expand

    This game is garbage! I wasted sixty bucks on this abomination. This game makes Sonic 06 look like Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in comparison.This game is garbage! I wasted sixty bucks on this abomination. This game makes Sonic 06 look like Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in comparison. Although, there's a few, very few positives.

    The game gets the many monsters that have appeared throughout Godzilla history spot on. From Mothra to Rodan and Mechagodzilla to King Ghidorah, fans will adore seeing each kaiju pop up for a brawl from time to time. The monster roster's a decent size it's one of the title's strongest positives. What's more, each beast has its own set of unique moves, and you can even upgrade their abilities via Evolve mode, which sees you unlock upgrades on a skill tree by using collectible items earned from bashing other enemies.

    There's really no story here in the main King of Destruction campgain because I only did it in forty minutes. Gameplay is dull. All you do is destroy generators or either battle other kaijus. That is it! Really!

    Gameplay is too repetitive and I can't stop saying "He's a kaiju, not a god!"

    Oh yeah, I forgot! You need to complete the campgain numerous times to unlock other kaiju, which is full of bull****

    The King of Kaijus mode is the best thing about this game. Although, no local multiplayer, you can choose to play as other kaiju (whom you unlocked) and play against the CPU.

    I'd give it a 2/10 if there was any emotion on this game but NOOOO! We get a horrible PS4 port of a horrible PS3 game... No effort at all.

    Also, why was Yoko Ono, John Lennon's wife involved in development of this game. Very confusing and funny. Maybe that's why this game flopped like a plate of jelly!!

    As a Japan fan, I'm heavily disgusted by this game.
