    Still: warts and all, this is among the best fighters for the system. [Dec 2007, p.82]
  2. Sadly enough these great features cannot save you from a horrendous storyline, generic sounds, and iffy controls.

    Character choices aside, if you can get past the occasionally spotty controls and the somewhat sluggish combat, you'll have a decent time with this game, especially if you grew up watching Godzilla and King Ghidorah duke it out on Saturday afternoon TV. Just don't set your expectations too high.
  4. Godzilla Unleashed does too many things poorly to be recommended to anyone but the most diehard of Godzilla fans, who will be attracted to some of the game's attempted fan service, like the impressive roster of monsters.
  5. We long for a good Godzilla game, but this isn’t it.
  6. 40
    Unleashed isn't completely without merit -- it just falls far below any reasonable standard for fighting, wrestling, or monster games.
  7. I plan to sink my copy into a bucket of concrete and plunge it into the deepest part of the ocean, after dropping it in a vat of carbolic acid.

    This game is awesome. It's non liner storyline, and beautiful controls make this game the best fighting game ever made.

    Fun, looks great, sounds great. the controls take some getting used to, it takes too long to unlock all of the monsters, the arenas area Fun, looks great, sounds great. the controls take some getting used to, it takes too long to unlock all of the monsters, the arenas area little bland, and there are bugs. there is a lack of polishing features like cool cinematics and some of the load/save ergonomics are a little clunky. but, core gameplay is excellent, and monsters are fun, and it's a great multiplayer experience.

Though it does control somewhat stiff it still is a fun game with a lot of great unlockables. Expand

    Critics get paid to rate a game, but there is no objectivity when describing fun, especially the insane amount of fun I had with this game.
