War of the Monsters by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • Summary: All in all, War of the Monsters is a good fighting game and a decent game over all. Overly convoluted controls can give you trouble while keeping up with the fast paced game play and the AI sure could use some work, but it's fun setting and tank throwing wackiness will keep you happy in the long run.
  • Pros: Great classic monster designs and killer environments.
  • Cons: Lousy AI and crappy control combination.

War of the Monsters

Into Liquid Sky
14 September 2003
  • Excerpt: War of the Monsters , at its heart, is a full blown melee fighter where the players take the role of one of many mutated beasts destroying their way from location to location. The game begins with a story sequence that explains the reason behind the game. In true B-movie fashion, players are informed of an alien invasion of the Earth. To defeat these aliens, Earth's scientists set up these electric machines, which knock the UFOs from the skies.
  • Pros: Lots to unlock, Captures B-movie feel well, Simple, easy to get into gameplay
  • Cons: Lots of button mashing, Cheap impaling attacks, Only two players at any time

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The Adventure mode grows quickly trite, and while the other single-player modes prove entertaining, the game is simply not worth a purchase if you do not plan to get together with a friend for two-player battles.

  • Excerpt: Incog. Inc. has made quite a name for itself in the past couple years, mainly credited with the success of the Twisted Metal series. Expanding the car-combat genre to its breaking point, the development company has truly presented gamers an experience like no other. The question, though, is whether Incog. Inc. has what it takes to expand into other areas, and in this case, the fighting genre.

War of the Monsters

Game Over Online
19 February 2003
  • Excerpt: Look out! The monster is destroying the town! Let’s face it: Everyone loves a rampaging monster. Watch little kids playing with Legos, and after they’ve painstakingly constructed a building, car or other structure, you’ll see them gleefully stomp and crush their creation. There’s something cathartic in watching a giant creature (often the byproduct of man’s misguided experiments with radioactivity) demolish an entire city.

  • Excerpt: With B-movie science fiction flair, Sony 's War of the Monsters lets you play as a gargantuan gorilla, an oversized lizard (sort of a No-Name-zilla) or a number of other city-stompers of likewise ludicrous largeness.

28 January 2003
  • Excerpt: There's something utterly satisfying about throwing a good four of five punches, then just letting loose with a shot that knocks the other guy 30 feet into the base of a skyscraper, splaying rubble across busy streets, then watching - almost in slo-motion - as the gutted mass of steel and concrete gives up its battle with gravity and topples down onto the beast sitting dazed at its base.

War of the Monsters

The Next Level
6 January 2002
  • Excerpt: Presentation is top-shelf, from the menu screens styled after a drive-in movie theater to the fully-orchestrated soundtrack recorded with real instruments. The graphics are among the best I’ve seen on the PS2 – crisp, clean monster models moving at a perfect 60fps. Even when the onscreen action is at its most hectic the engine never slows down.
