Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee
This is the best Godzilla game out there,
This game is really fun, hard, and addicting. Who doesn't like giant monsters destroying each other? The monsters are Godzilla 90's, Anguirus, Megolan, Gigan, Rodan, Godzilla 2000, Destroyha, King Chidora, Mecha Chidora, Mecha Godzilla, and Orga. (Sorry if my spelling isn't correct or if I left out a monster). My favorite Godzilla is Mecha Godzilla. Truly, if you don't have this game, you're missing out.
I got this game in 2006 and have loved it since. It is very addictive, but is more for kids. Either way if you love monsters fighting this is a good game for you.
It a Good Game
Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee is not the best Godzilla game but it gets a 8 out of 10 from me. The game includes over 10 monsters (not as much as Save the Earth or Unleashed) and a lot of arenas to battle in, too. The graphics aren't the best (I think I might just ne saying this because the other 2 games have better graphics so you might want to get this one first) but it's pretty good for the first Godzilla game on Gamcube! The story line is alright, although they use the same story line for every Godzilla fighting game (Melee, Save the Earth, Unleashed). The length I wouldn't know since I used cheat codes to unlock all the monsters and places and the challenge is horrible. Bottom line: If you have a Wii you should get Godzilla: Unleashed. If all you have a gamecube, get this game and if all you have is a PS2 you should get Save the Earth.
Good game, but something doesnt deliver
This is a fairly old game, but I will review it anyway. Here we go, first off the gameplay. I believe that the gameplay is well constructed, and the battle scenes are well organized, however the reaction time between the two monsters reminds me of the N64 with the painfully slow control reaction time. The unlockable monsters are fairly easy to unlock, however some of the fights are challenging late in the storyline. The graphics are above average, although not amazing. I've been a longtime Godzilla fan, even back to the 1950's black and white movies where the voices don't even match the lips. My final review is about a 7/10, its a good game but there isn't enough expansive content for it to be a long lasting game that someone would play over and over again.
A fighting game on an enormous scale!
Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee is, to sum it all up, an excellent fighting game for the Gamecube. When I first got it, I thought that it would be like any other fighting game I had played, with a standard combat layout. I was correct in regards to the basic fighting, but the scale blew me away. I knew that I would be fighting in cities on a huge scale, but I didn't assume that it would feel so real; like you were actually a 180-foot monster battling it out with another massive beast. Alright, let's get down to business. Gameplay. While the basic combat is just like any other fighting game out there, its scale adds a very different feel to the combat. You're no longer pulling a lightning-fast roundhouse kick to the chest; you're slowly pivoting to slam your tail into your opponent's torso. The combat itself doesn't feel too clunky, however; it's just slow enough to give it the "monster vs. monster" feel. A punch is fast enough to be effective, yet slow enough to give you the feeling that you're not playing Tekken. There are many different special moves to master, and each monster has its own set. What every monster has, however, is a ranged weapon. These range from Godzilla's fire breath to King Ghidora's lightning blast. These can be used to hit your opponent at longer ranges, but there are ways to dodge them, balancing the ranged weapon's power. Further balancing this weapon's efficiency is the energy meter, which powers the ranged attack, slowly recharging when not in use. Another factor that enhances the battle experience is the environmental factors that can be used to tip the scale of the battle. A few of these things include buildings you can throw, explosives that you can step on, and the many tanks and helicopters hovering nearby. Taking full advantage of these factors could give you an extra edge when battling it out with another player. The gameplay is very fun and challenging, so I'd give it a 9.2/10. The graphics are nothing outstanding, but they aren't terrible either, so you won't be fighting in a terribly-rendered environment. Water is done well, but it could be deeper, because in some places it just looks like the water is covering part of your feet. It would've been better if you could have waded knee-deep into the surf to battle it out with a retreating opponent. Explosions are done well, but they lack any kind of depth, so when you knock a chopper out of the air, all you'll see is a tiny flash. Hit animations are done very well, and fortunately, it doesn't give some giant flash when you land a hit on your opponent. Buildings, when destroyed, simply sink into the ground, so a city ravaged by a monster battle will be mostly empty, rather than the wreckage that most of us would want. Overall, I'd give the graphics an 8.4/10. The sound is fairly good, but all you really hear is the narrator saying "Fight" the sound of fists flying, and the sound of monsters roaring. Other than that, it's just the standard fight music. Overall, I'd give the sound a 7.6/10. The lasting appeal of the game is pretty good, considering that there's so many monsters to play as and play against. Most of the additional modes, though, feel kind of pointless. For example, adventure mode is fun, but it just pits you against the same monsters you could fight in versus mode, albeit with some kind of story to it. Destruction mode is good fun, and melee can be insane with a few friends, but anything besides versus seems to lose its charm after a while, and even versus can start to fell a little dull. Overall, I'd give the gameplay an 8.3/10. The final verdict? There really isn't a league of diehard fans for the game, but it's a lesser-known title that deserves some glory, and gets a 9.4/10 from me. Godzilla is an awesome fighting game for your Gamecube, and I guarantee that you'll be playing it for quite a while. Thanks for reading my review; I hope it was helpful. Good luck beating mechagodzilla!
This game isn't what I wished for
I really wanted to like this game, but the controls are horrible, the accuracy is beyond awful, and the annoyingly non-responding commands. This game just isn't good. The controls are so hard to get used to, and I've played this for 7 years, and they're still god awful. The responding of commands is frustrating. I press A and B to grab and I do a roar attack. Seriously!!?? Is this game making a fool out of me? The accuracy is what kills the game for me. I can't a single opponent without turning around? Save the Earth and Unleashed didn't have this! Fighting the monster is such a chore. The graphics are alright. The roster I'm fuming with. They can add a lot more monsters, but they didn't! What a waste. I don't like this game. It's bad accuracy, bad controls and bad command responding are beyond the hate scale.
Godzilla in all his glory!!!!!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters' greatest game is right here. It is just fantastic. I got this game when I was six, and have loved it since. I never get tired of this game. If I want some real godzilla video game action, or I am just bored, pop this in my Wii, and start playing. It has stuck with me ever since. Now Gamestop has a few things wrong in their description, first Godzilla is 300 ft tall, not 180 ft, and he ways several hundred tons, not 8. I should know, I know everything there is possibly to know about Godzilla and kaiju. I am the biggest Godzilla fan in America. So yes this Game is Great.
best Godzilla game
This is the best Godzilla game I've played so far! The attacks aren't so slow that the game is unplayable, but just slow enough that you can tell that you're playing as a giant monster! I love it!
Not as great as the XBOX one....
I was always a hardcore Godzilla fan growing up, but for some reason when I got this game, it didn't feel as fun as the XBOX one. The gameplay was still fun and finding all of the hidden images was easy, but if your a little kid wanting see giant monsters at a all out brawl, I would recommend this. Also, I missed Mecha-Godzilla 3, why did they remove him from the gamecube version I will never know.
Good for kids.Not for adults
This is REALLY GOOD GAME! This game is really good.I got this game for my son. He loves this game like he loves me!
