4.0 out of 5 stars the original and best big green fella returns!
This game is superb. The graphics, sound and music are excellent and replicate the Toho godzilla films. You can choose from about 11 different monsters (though you have to unlock most of them) and battle over various different cities, demolishing them along the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating 1-Player Mode
I love the visuals, I love the sounds, the gameplay is fun and frantic and the multi-play is hilarious. BUT....
The one player mode is just horrible - even on easy setting, you'll more than likly be tearing your hair out in frustration as the computer controlled monster runs rings around you.
It goes for power-ups you cannot see - Fliers zap you while you try to...

You can choose from about 11 different monsters (though you have to unlock most of them) and battle over various different cities, demolishing them along the way. You can also play in destruction mode, where the aim is to gain points by destroying buildings and landmarks in each city. Unfortunately, destruction mode is two player only - otherwise I would of rated the game 5 out of 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godzilla thrilla, 21 Dec 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (Video Game)
I absolutly loved this rowdy fighting game, which mixes decent beat 'em up standards such as a variety of charecters with individual special moves with many fondly remembeted elements from the original series of Toho movies. Not only can the monsters fight each other, but they can also use range attacks, pick up buildings and throw them, push over sky scrapers and use many of the moves seen in the movies. All whilst being attacked by the human military. Most defenatly a post pub game to play with mates.

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (Video Game)
This game is already a little bit aged, but if you still have your old Gamecube you can still have tons of fun with "Godzilla destroy all monsters". My 10 y.o. daughter certainly does. We have even more fun when playing together - although she beats the holy @#*µ%! out of me every time...)))

In this game you have initially only three monsters but you can unlock others by winning fights in adventure mode. The challenges will probably not be very tough to an experienced player - for me however they were quite serious. The last battle, against Mechagodzilla on board of alien Mothership, is really hard.

After unlocking all the monsters there will still remain one shadow with a question mark - it is a glitch. I believe this slot was supposed to show Space Godzilla, but this monster was ultimately not developed in this game. For that reason only the following eleven monsters can be played: Godzilla 90, Godzilla 2000, Anguirus, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Gigan, Megalon, Mechagodzilla, Destoroyah and Orga. A very good thing is that all monsters can be very dangerous, if well played - and surprisingly that includes even Anguirus (usually very mistreated in the movies), who in hands of a good player can knock out Mechagodzilla in a couple of minutes!

When well played, Mecha-King Ghidorah is probably the most dangerous monster, because of his darn !&*!%£+*! paralyzing rockets!!

Once all the monsters are unlocked you can play this game in solo or in one-against-one mode or even in teams. The fights between monsters can be really hilarious once you discover all the possibilities (like burning feet of opponents to make them dance, catching and throwing tanks, etc.). A particularly funny feature is the "destruction" mode in which two monsters compete for the destruction of the greatest possible number of buildings (and other things like cargo ships, bridges, oil tanks, etc.) in a limited amount of time.

There are many arenas where you can fight opponents and wreak havoc on human cities - Tokyo, Osaka, San Francisco, London, Los Angeles, Seattle but also Monster Island and the alien Mothership (which seems to be really the side of the Death Star!).

I must admit that this game became a kind of guilty evening pleasure of mine, tempered only by the fact that my sweet little princess always trashes me, no matter what kind of monster I choose to play...)))

The one player mode is just horrible - even on easy setting, you'll more than likly be tearing your hair out in frustration as the computer controlled monster runs rings around you.
It goes for power-ups you cannot see - Fliers zap you while you try to juggle with 2 analogues and the 'Z' button to hit them while airbourne...and so on...I spent most of the night with this one, and at the end of it, was ready to bite the head of anyone who so much as looked at me!
If you're a natural with beat'em ups you may get along with it, but I am left feeling just a little let down. I wish I had waited for a second hand copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars great fun, 12 April 2005
This review is from: Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (Video Game)
OK, this game is not an intellegent strategy game, it's a game to play after drinking lots of beer. The game involves Godzilla and his mates beating each other up and smashing cities in the process. There's a good sense of humour - check out the Aliens speech at the beginning of Adventure mode - and let's face it, a game involving giant reptiles smashing up cities needs it. I'm not a huge fan of fighting games generally, but (on single player mode) this one is challenging enough to keep me interested without being too hard.
Single player mode isn't what this game is about though. The multi player mode is great fun, whether you choose to play as a pure fighting game or in Destruction mode - points are scored by causing as much damage to the city as possible in the time limit, and defeating the other monsters doesn't really matter so much.
There are 11 monsters in the game, including Godzilla, Anguiras, King Ghidora and Mecha Godzilla, but for some reason you only have a choice of 3 to begin with, and you have to unlock the others by completing adventure mode (using a different monster each time) so one star lost for that.

This review is from: Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (Video Game)
If you and/or your children enjoy the Godzilla series, or simply like the idea of being a large monster able to trash large areas of any major city you choose, then this game is for you! Works best as 2-player, and has great graphic detail, and considerable "return" playability - ie you won't get bored too quickly with it!
Lots of neat detail touches, and much less disturbing than some of the violent gun-crazed shoot-em ups that are out there. Recommended.
