Top Critic Average
All in all, there may not be enough substance for a gamer to really stick around and play the game more than a few times in curiosity. While there is some enjoyment to be had, you may have to be a real fan of giant monster movies to really appreciate this title. As a fan I want to really like this game more than I do… as a writer and fellow consumer, I can see that the game is rough and could have done with some polishing up and tweaking such as larger maps to really feel like you as a giant monster had the run of the world.
Poor graphics and tedious gameplay
Despite any shortcomings it may have, Godzilla is a fantastically fun game for anyone who just wants to play as a radioactive monster causing havoc while fighting off humans and other creatures. The overall presentation is very cinematic and really recreates the feeling that long-time series fans will be looking for, making it well worth a go - but some people may want to wait for a price drop first.
The game is littered with fan service and was clearly made by people who love the property. In a way, that's what makes it so frustrating.
With ropy graphics, repetitive gameplay and wretched controls, Godzilla is so bad that it's almost lovable. You get a lot of classic kaiju to play with, and smashing them through the sights of Tokyo can be strangely entertaining. Sadly, it's not entertaining enough to warrant paying out for a full-price game.
The King of Monsters has crashed on to the PS4 and PS3 with Godzilla, but will the king claim is rightful throne or will he submerge with his fellow Kaiju beneath the seas?
Godzilla is an emaciated experience, with a dangerously ambitious price tag that smacks of men in suits preying on fans hoping for the best. Once again, this oversized, irradiated monster has been let down by video games.
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.
Godzilla is not a terrible game, but it's just not a lot of fun. The repetition sets in very early and it becomes a chore to play for all but the most diehard of fans.
