It's time to put away those epic, serious games and instead break out the Wii and get ready to kick some monster ass as Atari releases Godzilla: Unleashed. Specially designed for the Wii, Godzilla: Unleashed is a fighting game that makes good use of the controllers so that anyone can pick it up go for it. The game is well balanced so that more skilled gamers will still get the challenge they need, while still being fun for casual players, too.
The only hard aspect of the game is choosing which of the 23 monsters to play. Obviously, playing as Godzilla is bad ass, but other creatures have some sweet skills, special moves and special powers, too. A well-rounded fighting system will let gamers upgrade power-ups, use hand-to-hand combat and grappling moves, plus a variety of breath weapons keeps the action from falling quickly into a tedious slugfest. Never forget that it's an all-out war, so there's no need to pull punches or hold anything back. Claw, kick, stomp, blast, mash and brutalize enemies for the win and move on towards the title of "King of the Monsters."
To add to the chaos, each of the 3D cities are interactive and destructible, so that smaller buildings and items can be picked up and used as weapons against opponents. A rampage isn't a rampage until the city lies in rubble, so practice those special moves and mop up the ruins with an opponent's head for a little extra satisfaction. Both single player and multiplayer game modes are available, but this game really comes to life in multiplayer mode. Up to four players can fight at the same time, so pass out the controllers, turn up the subwoofer and fight to the death! Godzilla: Unleashed is a great game for the Wii and one that offers lots of replay value because destroying cities and monster wars never get old.
