I’m probably not the biggest Japanese monster movie buff out there, but I do enjoy the occasional “man-in-a-rubber-suit-stomping-on-a-model-of-Tokyo” movie, and when it comes to crushing detailed scale models, nothing comes close to the Godzilla legacy.

I don't know why Godzilla should be saving the Earth in the first place, but y'know, it hardly matters in this sequel to 2002's Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee. The focus here is not on logic, but on fighting other giant kaiju and destroying your favorite cities in spectacular fashion. It's a good time, but I can't help thinking it could have been an awesome time. In some ways, this is a game about missed opportunities.

Once upon a time it was perfectly fine to throw in some classic characters, let them fight a bit and call it a day. That was the shape of things for when Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee came out and a couple years later we now have Godzilla: Save the Earth. In the meantime the gaming world has also seen War of the Monsters tackle the same material in a much more dynamic way. So when the same developer brings out a game that's basically the same as the old one with some minor additions as well as online capability there's little reason to be excited unless the title drops in price.

Godzilla Save the Earth hat ein gewaltiges Problem: den Vorgänger Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee! Auf den ersten Blick ähneln sich die beiden Titel wie ein Ei dem anderen. Doch wo der erste Teil noch mit interessantem, wenngleich etwas zähem Gameplay aufwarten konnte, ist die Luft bei Save the Earth raus! Und auch der zweite Blick offenbart wenig Neues und kann nicht verschleiern, dass sich außer den Mini-Games wenig getan hat - die Prügeleien der Filmmonster laufen sogar noch langsamer ab als im Vorläufer! Grafisch ist Godzilla mit aufwändig gestalteten Monstern und netten Animationen, aber dafür auch mit schwach texturierten Städten ausgestattet. Hinzu kommt ein kruder Soundmix, in dem Geräusche, schwache Musik und einstürzende Gebäude in einem merkwürdigen Akustikbrei kaum auseinander zu halten sind.

If I were to ask someone on the street to name one of films most classic sci-fi monsters, Godzilla would be on the tip of many tongues. That popularity is what Atari is banking on, as Godzilla once again hops into the videogame realm, this time in Godzilla: Save the Earth.

GameSpy (Dec 07, 2004)
The King of the Monsters looks really pissed on the cover of Godzilla: Save the Earth -- as well he should be. His new game essentially serves as little more than an update to 2002's Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee. New additions include online play, a few new monsters and environments, plus a gameplay tweak here and there -- but that's pretty much it. Unless you're enough of a Godzilla geek to know that "Save the Earth" was the theme song from Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster (hence the game's title), you're not going to find much added value when compared to the previous game.

GameSpot (Nov 05, 2004)
The world's greatest movie monster and his numerous, gigantic enemies are back in Godzilla: Save the Earth, sort of a sequel to 2002's Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee for the GameCube. The new game, available only for the PS2 and Xbox, features nearly 20 different, recognizable monsters, as well as what seems like a wide variety of modes of play, including an online one. However, at its core, Godzilla: Save the Earth is still a rather clunky, unfulfilling fighting game whose cast of characters is by far the best thing it has going for it. Hardcore Godzilla fans will appreciate seeing the decent renderings of some of their favorite monsters here, but they're unlikely to be terribly impressed by the action itself.

Mal réalisé, bancal et manquant de crédibilité, Godzilla : Save The Earth se réduit à un jeu de combat sans imagination et cruellement banal. On aurait espère beaucoup mieux pour les 50 ans d'un des monstres les plus charismatiques et reconnus au sein de notre planète bleue. Défoulant à court terme et proposant des images préparatoires assez jolies à débloquer, il ne mérite pourtant pas vos économies. Mothra on t'aime !
