Conclusion: Godzilla: Destroy all Monster Melee is by far the best Godzilla game to date. It will, however, become quite a boring game after a short while, especially in the single-player modes. It might be worth having around to satisfy the need for a party game where anyone can hit a few buttons and still put up a decent fight. This game seems to be much more of a party-game than what it was promoted as.
Excerpt: I remember back in the day, sitting early in the morning waiting for the Saturday morning cartoons to get under way. My local television station would play Godzilla movies until then. So there I am setting in my Spidey Underoos just glued to the TV as this giant 180 ft radioactive lizard was running around giving Tokyo a new make over. Those were the days.
Excerpt: There are plenty of guilty pleasures that can be found in watching the plethora of Godzilla movies that make up typical late night fare, but none compare to the joy of putting yourself in the rubber suit to thrash equally cumbersome foes and crush miniature buildings.
Summary: Quite frankly I never realized what was so intriguing about a guy in a giant rubber suit, pretending to terrorize a city when it’s obvious he was trouncing through a fake city composed of foam blocks and buildings. My disdain towards giant monsters took a turn for the worst when was released, effectively killing any hopes I had of sympathizing with monster lovers who had a soft spot in their heart for the giant lizard.
Conclusion: tell you, because I haven’t had this much fun with a fighting game since… well, it’s been a long, long time. (Okay it was DAMM on GameCube!) I have to admit an affinity for Godzilla and practically every movie he has ever appeared in – except the awful Godzilla (set in New York) that came out a few years ago – so actually getting to strap on the most famous rubber suit ever, is like a dream finally made real.
Conclusion: El mítico monigote japonés que vuelve locos a los nipones aterriza de golpe y porrazo en Xbox tras pasar por alguna que otra máquina de la presente generación de consolas. Si eres de los que se pirran por las series del sol naciente, léete el análisis que te hemos preparado sobre el último videojuego de Godzilla.
Tokyo nimm Dich in acht... hier kommt Godzilla wieder!
16 June 2003
Excerpt: Wurden hier wieder Atomtests durchgeführt, oder wie kommt es plötzlich, dass wir Godzilla auf unseren Konsolen wiederfinden? Keine Ahnung, aber vielleicht ist es ja ganz gut so, denn hier muss sich unser Erdenmonster mit ausserirdischen Invasoren herumschlagen, ganz im Stil der guten alten japanischen Filme, allerdings hat Godzilla hier wohl Kampfsport-Unterricht genommen!
Pros: - Spaß im Mehrspielermodus, - Fun für Godzilla-Freaks, - Ungewöhnliches Beat´em Up
Cons: - Kampfarenen zu klein, - Keine Verteitigung gegen Menschen und Ausserirdische
