Godzilla has managed to strike terror on the patrons of Tokyo for years, but sadly his latest game does that for very different reasons. By providing slow gameplay and downright boring levels, Godzilla manages to somehow take all of the fun out of playing with giant monsters.
You can find fun in causing destruction in Godzilla for about forty-five minutes, before the repetitive game play, awkward controls and disappointing Kaiju fights take their toll. Godzilla deserved better.
It can make like Godzilla himself and get in the sea.
Godzilla faithful will be once again disappointed by this lackluster offering. Unintuitive controls, poor responsiveness, broken combat, repetitive missions… Not even Jet Jaguar can save this game from itself.
This is a Godzilla game that's struggled to evolve beyond the basics of what's expected of it – it's the iconic roar without any of the menace to back it up.
Godzilla is a game that may offer some satisfaction to hardcore fans, but casual players won't find much to like here. Clunky controls, poor visuals, and boring and repetitive gameplay make this game experience one that you should skip.
What could have been a cheese-filled celebration of the history of one of the most famous movie monsters around instead winds up as a tragic and premature obituary.
And that's what it feels like to play Godzilla - you're a man in a giant suit, blindly bumbling around a fake cardboard city, swinging your arms and trying not to pass out - not because you're exhausted, but because you're bored out of your mind.
The King of Monsters returns to the video game scene in a massive compendium of destruction and chaos with all of his allies and enemies.
