Summary: Godzilla: Unleashed is a fighting game on a gigantic scale — players are thrust into a world in which monsters are larger than life and the mother of all giants reigns. Players must battle with the legendary Godzilla and a slew of the most renowned monsters in a challenge to ultimately save the planet from mayhem and complete annihilation.
Excerpt: Sometimes playing games is a painful job, and more often than not these days that pain comes from the Wii and the near constant barrage of sub-par third-party efforts. The latest is Atari's Godzilla Unleashed, a game so devoid of fun it even makes the concept of giant monsters fighting in cities something I never want to see again - and I love giant monsters. The game is split into a four-player brawler and a single-player story mode.
Conclusion: Unless you are a huge fan of zombies, knights and all things goth, then it is difficult to recommend Undead Knights as anything more than a rental. The gameplay, while fun at times, is extremely uninspired, as is the rest of the game. After all the beautiful, fun and creative PSP games before it, it feels like a shallow and inferior experience, and if you pay full retail price for it, you will likely start feeling buyer's remorse after your first hour with the game.
Conclusion: Sadly, there is very little to recommend about this game. The only people that should pick this up are die-hard Godzilla fans that can't find a copy of Godzilla: Save the Earth . That game is basically the same though throws work and offer some satisfaction. If you are not overly obsessed by Godzilla, then don't bother. There are hundreds of decent fighting games on the market, and most are far cheaper.
Excerpt: sounds like a fun idea, at least in theory. How can it not be fun to control some of the biggest and meanest monsters ever created, fight other monsters, and destroy everything in your path? Unfortunately, Atari and developer Pipeworks found a way to make this a droll, ugly experience. Unless you are a huge fan of Godzilla and have to collect everything, you�re going to want to stay as far away from this game as you would from the real Godzilla.
Excerpt: Common thoughts when watching a Godzilla movie: "If you told girls you were the guy in the rubber suit, would they believe you?", and "If Godzilla spit at King Kong, wouldn't all his hair catch on fire? How is that even a contest?" A less common thought, on the other scaly claw, is: "Man, Godzilla is pretty cool, but someone should let that guy off his leash!
Pros: Godzilla is in this game!, Looks like a Godzilla game should look
Cons: Terrible targeting system, Short, pointless campaign, The AI is weirdly inconsistent, Generally awful production
