Critic Reviews for GigaBash

GigaBash succeeds as a fun arena fighter with a focus on four-player chaos, even if that fun doesn't quite translate over quite as well to the solo or online experience.

Solid and definitely have an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

GigaBash is a love letter to Kaiju cinema, assuming that a love letter can involve throwing buildings at each other. Raucous, entertaining, and brilliantly designed, GigaBash deserves to stomp its way into players' hearts around the globe.

GigaBash has a lot of fun elements to it. The monsters are quite varied and well-designed, in terms of both original creatures and obvious nods to classics. I also really enjoyed the battlegrounds, music, and stories (as short as the latter was). And that last note ultimately sums up my experience. In both gameplay modes and story, it doesn’t take a lot of time to see everything GigaBash has going on. Even so, if you can wrangle some buddies together either locally or online, GigaBash would make a solid addition to a party game night.

GigaBash is not be a spectacular brawler, it still does a fantastic job of capturing the feel of a bygone era of monster movie whilst also playing out as a fun multiplayer title. It faces a tough battle in an oversaturated modern market where online is concerned, but as a local multiplayer title, it could easily maintain a healthy shelf life.

Multiplayer is undoubtedly the game's main draw. Supporting up to four players, you've got free-for-all, 2v2 team battles, while Mayhem Mode – which is sadly not available online – introduces minigames, including classics like The Floor is Lava and boss fights. Our personal favourite is Rampage, which sees players racing to destroy as many buildings as possible for points, though there’s plenty of other options. This all adds some necessary variety and if you can assemble three other players, GigaBash is a great time that comes recommended.

GigaBash is a fun take on the Kaiju genre that features original character design and music. The gameplay is the best of both worlds allowing casual and seasoned gamers to enjoy the various levels of strategy required.

Whether Gigabash proves enduringly sticky enough to weather the wax and wane of the console’s fighting game community seems up to chance, and its prickly price tag isn’t doing it any favors. It’s not a Smash Bros. killer but has its own eccentricities and charm, even while begging for that franchise’s array of match-changing items or epic single-player modes; just a tournament mode or randomized match queue would be welcome. As it stands, it’s still a smooth and quirky kaiju brawler packed with cities and buildings to crush to dust.
