Toho's best in one game!
This game is amazing! It takes in 28(?) of Toho's kaiju into a great battle. Great to play with friends too, up to 4 players makes it way better. The only thing I don't like is that if it had some other monsters as well (some playable on the ps2 version) like Showa Gigan and Battra
Godzilla is back
Godzilla+ video game = A fun fighting game
Although the graphics are nothing to brag about, the game is still a fun game to play with a freind over. The fighting is the highlight of the game, but my favorite part is when you just destroy the cities for points.
So the game is fun to play, and im glad i own it for the wii
Great game for fans and for some non-fans.
I have to say, this is one of my favorite games ever made. I love Godzilla, and I love fighting games. They really did a good job at making you feel like an epic monster, and all the iconic monsters were authentic. The only real downfall to this game is it's graphics. They aren't that great.
Best Godzilla Game
Godzilla Unleashed is one of the many games that was screwed over by the gaming media despite it being no where near as bad as the they claim. This is going to be biased as I am reviewing this game from the perspective of a Godzilla fan (the intended audience for this game, after all).
The gameplay for this game is absolutely top notch. I have never had as much fun with a fighting game as this one, and I managed to have a lot of fun simply playing by myself. The reason is simple: You have 28 different monsters to choose from, including many obscure ones such as Titanosaurus and King Ceaser. This is basically every Godzilla fan's dream game. No where else has any form of Godzilla media brought all these monsters into one area, and you can use them to create your dream battles. The gameplay itself is also very good. The gameplay is much slower than typical fighting games, mimicking the several thousand ton monster battles we all love to watch on TV, which both adds to a genuine Godzilla feel and also forces you think more in battle than simply memorizing a long string of buttons and chaining a really cheap combo. The game's deliberate slow pace, however, does make it jarring when a general fighting game fan tries to play this, so the people complaining about it is somewhat justified. The controls also contributed to the less than great first impression. The controls are NOT bad. They are DIFFERENT. The controls take full advantage of the Wii's motion controls (this game, by far, takes the BEST advantage of the motion controls, basing the entire fighting mechanic around it rather than some gimmicky moves in many others). This takes time to get used to, which means you'll probably be playing this game for a week before you nail down the controls and get it right. However, once you get it down, the gameplay is PERFECT. Great for inviting your friends over and having a blast beating each other up as giant monsters.
The graphics and sound are no slouch, either. The game looks absolutely gorgeous on the Wii. Even though the game came out in 2007 (relatively early in the Wii's life-cycle), this game still is one of the best looking Wii games out there. The monster models are extremely detailed, the buildings crumble realistically, and the reflective water looks absolutely amazing. This graphical power does lead to some slowdowns within parts of the game, but they're rarely long or very frustrating (the slow nature of the game means that it won't affect much on gameplay, anyways). The sound is great, too. The music is absolutely amazing. It was probably the first full gaming soundtrack I looked for on Youtube, instead of simply finding a particular game's main theme song. Heavy Melody really did a good job with this one. The monster roars are also great. I can't believe they even incorporated the ORIGINAL 1954 GODZILLA'S ROAR in the game. The only complaint for the roars is for Mechagodzilla 1. His trademark screech is not there (for some reason, Kiryu uses it in his victory roar), but other than that, all the monsters sound like we expect them to: large and mean.
Finally, there's lasting appeal. Even though in most cases, lack of online play would've drastically reduced replay value (keep reading, guys), Godzilla Unleashed manages to be fun enough that I actually found myself continually playing this game by my self for hours on end. The story of this game changes each time you make a decision. Whether or not you shoot down the alien mothership, trash or save the city, fight or ignore a certain monster, or keep or destroy a power surge, that will affect your standing within the various factions of the game, and, by extension, how different scenarios will happen and play out. This means that unless you deliberately do the exact same thing over and over again in each playthrough, every playthrough should be different (even getting defeated will still move onto the next level, your defeat obviously affecting the story). Now, this isn't a complicated RPG. The changing storyline is not that complicated, and many scenarios simply switch times. However, the fact remains that this is still a much fresher experience in a fighting game, changing from a standard tournament type single player to an actual campaign in its own right, complete with walking around in a third person view exploring the city for new objectives. The gameplay itself is already fun, as it requires actual battlefield thinking instead of memorization, which means that you'll be spending a lot of time playing this game by yourself, despite the lack of online play. Then, if you have a couple of friends that are also Godzilla fans, this game will last you for a very long time.
Definite recommend to Godzilla fans!
This is the third game in the series and it is really bad.It is the same as the last two except even more boring.
very brutel and fun
This game is one of the best games i have ever played on any game system. I had this game for ps2 before and it was good but i traded it in to get a wii . The game has more monsters on the wii version better grapics and is way more fun. All of my friends love this game even though it is trickey to master at first play.
why i like this game!
this game is great because you get to create your own modes,and fight a total of 26 monsters!?!also, it really felt like if i was a real monster!
