|Strap on some monster-sized boots and prepare to wreak havoc all over the world as you battle gargantuan opponents from the classic Toho Co. movies. Godzilla: Save the Earth features more than a dozen battlegrounds in cities all over the globe, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Osaka, and New York City, all of which have been enhanced and enlarged, and feature hills, oceans, mountains, and harbors. |
The game boasts advanced destruction mechanics; a gouge to a large building reveals its skeletal structure, before another hit sends it crumbling to the ground. Players can chose from nine game modes -- such as Action, Challenge, Custom, and Versus -- as they go bare knuckle, err -- claw, against more than 18 classic Toho movie monsters, like King Dhidorah, Gigan, Mothra, and Biollante.
For more destructive mayhem, players can go online where a number of multiplayer options exist for up to four players including head to head, three or four-player-free-for-all, team, and two on two.

I am a HUGE Godzilla fan - the Japanese movies, not the poor excuse of an American monster. When I heard Godzilla was going to have new games, naturally I was ecstatic - but playing this game really let me down. This is the second of the two recently released Godzilla games. Both games are relatively the same, the only difference being characters basically. Playing through this, though, you will tire quickly of the repetative action and such. Here's my quick take:
Likes: I like being the monsters and running through cities, destroying buildings and other monsters. I like the multiplayer and the mayhem it creates when four monsters are battling it out. It's just fun being monsters you watched on TV. I like having to unlock the other monsters. The random power-ups are fun too. The graphics are so-so and the sound effects are the same - at least they got the monsters' roars good!
Dislikes: There is no story mode - oh, they say story mode, but all you really do is choose a monster and fight one monster after another. It's more like an arcade game than anything. You'll fight several different monsters in a row, in different cities and then that's it - it's done. I also don't like the limited moves. Each monster has different moves, but they're all similar in the styles. Each characters can pick up and throw, or do a move while holding the opponent, they can punch and kick, use their tail if they have one, some can fly. I know we're talking about large monsters, but their move sets could be a bit different and expansive than they are. As a long time Godzilla fan, there's a few things that bother me as far as the monster selection goes. Where is Titanasauras (from Terror of MechaGodzilla)? Where is Hedorah aka The Smog Monster? - He has a walk on role, but why can't we play as him? Howcome there's no Godzilla from 1960 or somewhere in that era? We have Godzilla 90s and Godzilla 2000, but shouldn't use long time fans who adore the classics be rewarded as well? And speaking of the older movies, why can't we be the original MechaGodzilla? How about Ebirah the large lobster-like creature? Long time Godzilla fans might crave more monsters than this game presents. Also, there are mini games along the way that just take the game down to a child-like level. There will be games that simulate basketball and other such activities that these monsters should not be engaging in, in any way.
I think Atari could pull out a better Godzilla game if they tried. I cannot stress that it IS fun, but only for a limited time because they repetative action and lack of variety or story kills this game. I'd like to see a game with a story where you can play as Godzilla - destroying cities, fighting armies, aliens and other monsters - but also as a person! As a person, there could be scenes where you have to escape Godzilla in a car chase, or have to escape from a building he had destroyed before it crumbles down and kills you. Maybe you have to sneak onto an alien space ship and bust up their computer? See where I'm going with this? If Atari had a true Godzilla fan develop a game, it would be awesome. Instead, we are left with an arcade, smash-em-up, brawling game whose replay value is rather low. Better luck next time, Atari.
Probably one of my favorite fighting games. There's something about playing as a giant monster fighting with other monsters and doing it all within a fully destructable city that just makes me happy, and having Godzilla characters only makes it better.
Although this game does not appear to be made for widescreen TV's, on my XBOX 360 the picture is turned into a box with the sides of the screen black.
Still a great game even for how old it is, I have owned this game a total of three times, every time I get rid of it I want to play it again within a few months.
My Kids also enjoy this game, I've seen them play it several times for up to an hour since I added it to the game collection.... for the third time.
4 out of 5, mainly due to not being in widescreen.
I decided to purchase this title for one, I'm a fan of the Godzilla series and whole giant monster genre, but aside from that, this is still a fun title to play on XBox Live, with other friends who have the game.
Unfortunately, this game has seemed to lost a lot of players online, and finding an online match is near impossible (unless you know the person, or e-mail them ahead of time).
The multiplayer in the game, such as match making is the worst I've ever seen a game. The multiplayer menu is terrible, after every game you cannot stay in the same game, you always have to create a new one and re-invite whoever was in your last game. The voice while trying to talk with your friends in the game is glitchy and a bit jumpy so it sounds weird.
If your a fan of the genre, and have other friends that occasionally play this title on XBox Live, I would say go for it and get the game, otherwise...I'd wait for a much better Godzilla game, or even for Godzilla:Unleashed to come out for the 360.
What a fun game.Got it for my two boys they can't get enough of it.How cool is it when you get to take out the city you were born in with your favorite giant monster?18 monsters to choose from,battle with each other or against the AI...yeah...I play it too...can't help it..I'm a huge fan and it's a really fun game!
I bought Godzilla: Save the Earth for my six year old son. He has other Godzilla games, but this is his favorite. He said it has more characters available and is easier to play. Even though Godzilla: Save the Earth is made for Xbox, it plays well on the XBox 360. The only thing he does not like is that the "cheats" he uses (to unlock all characters/places)cannot be saved.
