    A Game that any Godzilla Geek would appreciate

    Posted .

    Godzilla the Game is not for the average gamer but for the Godzilla movie buff specifically in mind. The game is best described as a Godzilla Simulator that puts you in the rubber suit of Godzilla and your favorite Toho monsters (similar to the Japanese Godzilla game, Godzilla Generations). The Kaiju are beautifully rendered on the SH MonsterArts line of model figures and the sound effects, roars and monster movements mimic their film counterparts perfectly. The attention to detail of what occurs in the movies are also impeccable. You want to see Mechagodzilla 2 lose his head - its there. You want to shake hands with Jet Jaguar - its there. You want to see Super X2 reflect Godzilla's heat ray (atomic breath) back at him with the Yellow laser and sound effect - its there! Chances are if you seen the Godzilla movies, you will recognize every weapon, enemy and bit of fanservice in this game. The main mode is God of Destruction which starts off as you the player guiding Godzilla on a destructive rampage to destroy the cities, military, enemy Kaiju while destroying Generators to gain G-Energy. The more you destroy, the bigger your Kaiju gets. The higher score you achieve as well as the more monsters you kill, give you upgrade points to supe up your monsters with additional moves or powerups in Evolution Mode. Also, every monster you encounter in GoD mode is then unlocked for you to upgrade. Just to be clear though, even though you are upgrading your creature, since this is a Godzilla Simulator, your monster is going to move slowly like a giant titan. If you are looking for the fast paced arcadey style action with UFO dropped powerups seen in the Gamecube, PS2 and Xbox Godzilla games, then look elsewhere. If destroying the world is not your thing, you can also choose to be a Kaiju defender and play as Mothra, Kiryu, Super Mechagodzilla or even Jet Jaguar. Upgrading your monsters allows you better pass through the later difficulties of God of Destruction mode and certainly prepares you for King of Kaiju Mode and Online Multiplayer. King of Kaiju allows you to select your Kaiju and battle 6 monsters in a row to get the best time. The reward is obtaining upgrade points for your Monster while also collecting a random amount from one of the monsters you defeated. Online Mode is where you show off your upgraded Kaiju in a 2 on 2 or 3-for-all. The 3-for-alls tend to be the best where it turns into a battle royale of monsters jockeying for position to get in their hits or sometimes double team a stronger creature. One thing to note though is that this isn't your typical fast-paced balanced fighting game. Some monsters are overpowered from the start such as Burning Godzilla and Godzilla 2014. If you want to stand toe to toe with these monsters as the Mothra Larva or Rodan, you will have to upgrade your characters. However, when you win, it does feel satisfying. Lastly, there is Diorama mode which is a photo model mode allowing you to place kaiju figures that you unlock in different poses and take photos. (I included some pictures of my own). It literally looks like the Toho sound stages from behind the scenes with the matte painted backgrounds and lights shining through the top of the screen. This to me is a treat and any other fan that I have spoken agrees because it lets you re-enact battles or scenarios from the movies or just make up new ones. You can only put 4 items in a level at once but it is fun to play around with if you are a fan. Is this a game for everyone? Not at all. The creators specifically said that they wanted to create a cinematic Godzilla experience where the fans could play as Godzilla and their other favorite monsters. They even brought in the creative director from the 90's Godzilla movies to get the feel right. Is it perfect? No - the game's graphics don't push the PS4's to its limits at all and there is clipping that occurs when fighting the monsters or destroying buildings. Online can sometimes have lag but most of the time it runs pretty well. I will add that any of the claims that say this game looks like a PS2 game or even worse are false. The controls themselves are similar to tank controls where you use the L1/R1 buttons to turn but after a while, the controls became 2nd nature. The R3 button then serves to swiftly swing around the camera and gives you the perfect movie look. It sounds weird to the average game, but trust me, it works. If you are a Godzilla Geek who always wanted to be Godzilla and other Kaiju in the most realistic style to date, then this is the game for you. If you are looking for the Godzilla Melee fighting games from 2 generations ago, then I would either rent or pass on this one. Personally, it is my favorite Godzilla game to date - but I knew what I was getting into. I hope this review was helpful and enjoy the game if you do get it.

    Needs a block button

    Posted .

    Anyone that rates this game lower than a 3 is not a real Godzilla fan. Before you buy this game ask yourself how much of a Godzilla fan you really are. If you were not one of those kids that would stay home on a Saturday afternoon to watch like five Godzilla movies straight, this game is not for you. If you were to see a diorama of Tokyo had zero desire to jump on it and start destroying buildings then this game is not for you. Yes, Gojira is slow, yes the combat is repetitive and there is no block button (reason for a 4), but this game is what every Godzilla movie has been. You literally feel like you are in a big rubber suit destroying a giant diorama and toy vehicles. The only other downside is that fan or not, this game is not worth $60. It should have been $50 tops. Then again, if you are a Gamers Club Unlocked member, you only paid $48.

    A love letter to the Godzilla franchise

    |
    Posted .

    Over a decade after Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters was released, this new Godzilla game is part brawler, part Rampage game. If this sounds like an idea that would come with the price of less-than-perfect controls, it's because it is. And that's a good thing. For the first time ever in a Godzilla game, the famous Kaiju actually control, look, and feel like their big screen counterparts. They're stiff, slow, yet powerful, loud, and destructive. If you always wanted to fly as King Ghidora and rain electricity down on an unsuspecting town, now you can. The controls take some getting use to, but when you do, you truly do feel like a monster. In terms of the game modes, the game boils down to a single player arcade mode where you destroy a town and fight a kaiju or two, then continue to the next stage. There are multiple paths to take, which increases replayability. If a defender kaiju like Jet Jaguar is chosen, you must defend the city. Also included is a mode just for kaiju brawling and online multiplayer, including 3 way free-for-alls. Graphically, this game is just ugly. No way to defend it really. The frame rate does dip when destruction is heavy and the PS4 fans kick up as well. No excuses for this stuff. While the game is fun, I'm giving it 3 stars simply out of the fact that there is no true replayability. While there are around 30 kaiju, most with completely unique attacks and capabilities, it doesn't change the fact that the core gameplay remains the same. The average playthrough of the single player mode is 50-70 minutes. It is a very tedious game. However, if you're a big Godzilla fan, there is tons of fun to have destroying and smashing buildings and other Kaiju. Just know that there is a chance the fun might dry up faster than you'd want it to.

    King of the Monsters

    Godzilla fans should enjoy this title, I know I do for sure. Of course it has graphical and gameplay issues which has hurt its reviews. The attention to detail however for Godzilla and the large list of monsters he has encountered over the years is second to none. It's fantastic battling it out against Mothhra or King Ghidorah especially when the game is set up to look and feel just like Godzilla films of the past.

    This is a really fun game for me and I will say this game is for the Godzilla fan. Yes there is a lot of grinding for everything to be unlocked and upgraded but there is a lot of fan service. This is a kinda slow in gameplay and things but still the monsters are awesome and are recreated greatly. So remember if you are not a hardcore Godzilla fan don't buy.

    It's a simple game of destroying cities and fighting other monsters. There is plenty to unlock in this game and if your on the fence about buying it (which I was) Just do it. I'm into it and so will the kids. -Online VS. (1-1 or just 3 monsters at a time) -Choose a path level mode similar to NES Godzilla. -tons to unlock if your a fan.

    Fun to be had for a diehard Godzilla fan.

    Is this game a great game? No. Having said that, this game hides some fun if you can get past the awkward controls and slow pacing. It does get repetitive after a time but no other game will mimic the experience of being Godzilla smashing his way through Tokyo and any other kaiju yhat get in his way better than this game. As a fan, it is nice to see so many entries of the Godzilla timeline and get a chance to take them out for a test drive.

    Nothing special, but I like it.

    This is definitely a budget game. It is a re-release of a PS3 game from Japan. As a huge Godzilla fan, I love taking control of 10+ of some of my favorite Kaiju as lumbering hulking giants. If you are not a fan, I suspect you would feel very differently. The game is VERY repetitive, only has a veneer of a story mode, only online multiplayer (which you need ps+ for), and has a simple level up system for each monster which would be fun if it did not require an EXCESSIVE amount of grinding. Depending on your outlook, this game could have a massive amount of cons. As a long time fan of Godzilla, I take what I can get.

    WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME

    I thought this game was going to be good...BUT it's riddled with terrible game mechanics. Let's start with the graphics, they aren't even up to par with late PS3 games, this game has the graphics of an early PS3 game! Controls? You have three attacks you can do plus two special moves...wow! SO MANY OPTIONS! JUST KIDDING! The AI in the game are stupid, they back away from you to lure you into an attack THAT IS UNAVOIDABLE, even if you are attacking them with a heavy attack they can break it and combo you until you die (especially if you are stuck on an edge of the map). I don't review many games on websites like this but I thought everyone should know that this game is not fun at all and is not worth the 64 dollar price tag! I get that they are huge monsters but they move so slow that avoiding attacks is useless. On top of it all you can only play Campaign mode with the original 'zilla, you cannot use unlocked characters or anything. VS mode is even worse, the game has no filtering for skill level so it will put a level 10 against a level 70, there is no hope. Am i finished yet? NOPE. On top of it all the voice acting is horrible and through out the Campaign mode they talk NONSTOP and it is so annoying. To top this cake the Diorama mode is pointless, it is exactly that...placing figures on a piece of map and looking at them do nothing. That's it....the only good part of this game was the Kaiju guide which gives you back stories on all of the monsters in the game which i thought was interesting...but you have to meet them in the game first to unlock their story so it's not really worth it in the end. I'm sure I am forgetting some things but I think this is suffice If you like bad games that are labeled as 'Next-gen' then be my guest and buy this game

    Really Good, Could've Been Great

    The game is a lot of fun. Decent amount of monsters from across all eras of Godzilla movies. Unfortunately there is no local vs mode like all the Atari games had. There is also next to nothing for download content. Was really hoping they would increase the monster count via downloads. It is a really good game, but could've been great.

    Godzilla-The King needs better Technology

    Fun game that is ruined by lame tech-Namco/Bandai make the destruction of buildings look like a PS1 game as opposed to PS4!!! The monsters, sound design, and music are fine-the unlocking of monsters, choice of monsters, and annoying politicians need more thought! So...I adore Gojira!-got my Playstation gig through "The King", but this is just another thoughtless Godzilla game that Could have been great!!! Shame...!!!

    Solid arcade style fun, a little repetitive

    Big Godzilla fan and had enjoyed the previous video game entry, which I believe was all the way back for PS2? I haven't played this one now for some time, but upon release, head to head versus a friend was not available, at least offline. I would hope that a patch would add that option; it would add replayability value to this title, making it a game to pull out at parties.

    Fun for Godzilla fans, not so fun for anyone else.

    I am a huge Godzilla and classic movie monster fan. As such, this game seemed right up my alley. I am happy to say that Namco-Bandai perfectly represented the kaiju genre well. It really feels like you are playing one of those classic movies. However, the game itself is clunky and repetitive. Mechanically, it can be quite simple to play and if you are not a fan, it will get old fast.

    Overall, I like the game. That being said, I wish it had a little more replay ability. I was disappointed that this game had substandard PS2 graphics...it look like a direct port rather than a remastered PS4 enhanced version...which it should have been. Recommended for only the diehard Godzilla fans that will overlook gameplay graphics and objective overplay gaming.

    Disappointed

    Posted .

    Decided to buy this hoping it was more like Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters for the Gamecube. Was very disappointed that it was not like that. There are multiple modes, but each one boils down to either destroy the generators, or defend them if you choose defense mode. In story mode where you go and destroy the generators, normally after destroying the first one, a kaiju will appear, however, you can completely ignore said monster and keep on destroying the generators, and if you destroy all 3, the level ends. Defense is just the opposite, kill the kaiju attacking the generators with as minimal destruction as possible. The only real nice thing about this game, is the monsterpedia giving you information about each kaiju, movies and years they were introduced, etc. (Which you have to still unlock each entry) If you can find this game for $10 or under, maybe contemplate getting it. I made the mistake of paying full price for this.

    Repetitive, no blocking, great selection of characters, beautiful character design but boring. I was hoping for Save The Earth 2 essentially since it's been such a long time since a Godzilla game came out and this one fell short. If you are huge Godzilla fan like me, it's worth <$20 but I wouldn't pay full price.

    It is an OK game. The action is quite slow, but I think that might have been the intention of the creator of the game to make it like the movies. Just wasn't my style of game.

    the game is a great for anyone who likes Godzilla or Kaiju based movies... its a simple and basic fighting/destruction game. the graphics are good (could be better for a ps4 game) but the presentation and monster details were great... and its great indulgence to smash tanks and puny soldiers.. recommend to anyone into Godzilla...
