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.
There is only so far you can take a game titled Godzilla. After the fun of smashing up buildings and flinging helicopters soon wears off, you begin to find yourself with a mediocre title that becomes repetitive at best. That said, for gamers with those requirements and a love for Godzilla, you should definitely try out this year's entry. Just not yet.
The worst part about my experience with Godzilla is the fact that it didn't provide laughs or enjoyment because of its poor quality. Instead, I just sat there bored for much of the time as I endlessly destroyed cities and fought other monsters in terribly unbalanced fights.
Godzilla's biggest flaw -- thanks to its horrendous performance across the board -- is that it forgets to be fun or anything closely resembling that.
This game feels like something that would interest the two New Zealanders who watch Grown Ups 2 every week and talk about it on their podcast, Worst Idea Of All Time. Because unabashed masochism is the only discernible justification for putting any time into Godzilla.
[W]hile Godzilla might be an average game in many ways, it's also a very faithful Godzilla experience, and one that fans and will treasure having in their collection.
Worst of all, unlocking the new monsters involves trekking through the tedious campaign over and over again, grinding for experience.
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.
Godzilla should be fertile material for a fun game, but the slow pacing and shallow controls hold it back, creating a repetitive experience that misses too many opportunities for me to recommend it to anyone but the most hardcore of Godzilla fans.
Godzilla puts you into the destructive feet of the King of Monsters. Unfortunately, being the king is kind of boring.
