Remember that scene in Spiderman when J.
Jonah Jameson is flipping through a bunch of stellar photos taken by
Peter Parker? He gruffly dismisses most as, “Crap!” Sometimes at the
Armchair Empire I feel like Mr. Jameson – the only difference is that
some of the stuff I do look at really is crap.
I really hate saying this – as I don’t like to slam any game, except
maybe Druuna – but Godzilla Domination (GD) is a waste of time. I’m a
huge fan of Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee for GameCube and had
hopes for GD but after coasting through the battles in about 20 minutes
then spending almost 90 minutes trying to beat the end boss,
those hopes were squashed under a big reptilian foot.
The list of gaming sins committed by GD is a long one. The control is
only passable; the fighting is so basic as to be laughable, but
performing the special moves is horrendously difficult; the two bonus
rounds are boring and un-fun; single-player options are limited to one
mode; the health bars are incredibly hard to see (some of this is
attributable to the GBA’s dark screen); only six playable characters;
and the graphics could have been a lot better.
If you actually manage to scrounge together some friends so you can play
one of the other modes, you’ll probably wind up being bored beyond help.
God help you if you’ve had a few cold ones. (Which will make you pass
out faster: GD or a six-pack of Kokanee?)
