Zero Punctuation: Godzilla - God-Awful-Zilla

i wish this Game was better then it is..

Sounds to me like the one level in Alice: Madness Returns where Alice becomes giant and wrecks everything is more entertaining than this game. I'll give it a pass.

This Godzilla game is a bloody tragedy.

All they had to do was copy the game play from the old PS2/Xbox/GameCube Godzilla games from about 12 years back with new shiny graphics. That's all it would have taken to make a game I'd be proud to have in my collection. But instead, they make a pile of crap with awkward controls and pointless game play that drags on. It's very disappointing.

Psychonauts, too. Great level.

There was only one nation being a jerk during the nuking of Japan, and it certainly wasn't Japan.

Clearly not a history buff.

OT:

I almost bought this game yesterday when I found out it came out.

Fortunately, one of my friends already bought it and warded me off.

Now I'm probably going to use that 64 dollars to buy a really pretty promo magic card...

Wow the Godzilla guy is going to be disappointed about this. Shame the game isn't any good.

I almost let myself hope we would get another good Godzilla game like Save the Earth and Melee. But they completely ruined it and turned it into something that looks barely better than a grindfest.

So what you're saying is, Godzilla controls like "the end" of Shadow of the Colossus, if you know what I mean.

Oh yeah that was a grand little setpiece, and that's what that type of gameplay should be I feel: a setpiece/mission, not an entire game.

CadashReaver:

Yes it absolutely was Japan.

OT: Very to the point and a shame to hear since I used to enjoy Godzilla stuff, even that movie that came out around 2000.

I haven't played this game, but it sounds like it perfectly depicts all the Godzilla movies made before 1984.

A Godzilla game that sucks? We haven't seen THAT before. /sarcasm

Maybe not during the nuking of Japan, but keep in mind we gave them days notice and a chance to surrender during the time between the First Drop and the Second.

And even if they weren't jerks during, I am sure the whole rape and murder of millions of Chinese during the China Campaign surely makes up for it.

Godzilla - God-Awful-Zilla

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Godzilla.

Sorry, but when a nation starts spreading propaganda to the average Joe [insert common Japanese name here] that your untrained, unarmed ass kamikaze attacking those armed foreigners invading is a great idea (if the goal is to get both killed...) to the point that two nuclear weapons somehow wind up being the way to get less casualties on both sides, there's at least one other jerk in this scenario (hint, it's Japan)

Captcha: have fun
I don't think this is the appropriate time for levity, Captcha

Pfff, Quantun army was already doomed at that point, and dropping the bombs had nothing to do with its devastation. Japanese capitulation followed Manchurian operation, thus bombardments were as unnecessary as they could be, and thus criminal.

As someone who went to university in Coventry, I take a personal affront with the end credits comment.

Godzilla should already have done it

A game based on the most recent Godzilla movie would be even worse, because Godzilla would barely even be in it, and you wouldn't see shit.

Unrelated... but Bojack Horseman can fuck right off, even without the mind-numbing repetition of it being before every video on this site, it looks painfully unfunny from the "highlights" they choose as an advertisement.

I got the game on release day and while it has flaws as a huge Godzilla fan I've been able to look past that and really enjoy myself.

I do realize I'm in the minority on that fact though.

Going by the reviews I've seen / read, it seems that they were actually trying to make a worse game than R**e to H*ll: R*tributi*n.

Sounds like they came pretty close...

That was, far and away, the best dick analogy I've ever seen Yahtzee make.

As for the game? Well, sad to say, but there are games from two generations ago that did it better than this with more fun and less frustration.

I didn't even know there was a Godzilla game on the PS4 until now.

That dick joke at the end was absolutely masterful.

Makes me want to find a Rampage arcade cabinet and waste some quarters.
Scratch that, 240 quarters in an arcade sounds like a wise investment compared to $60 on this game.

Yes because doing something so shocking that killed hundreds of thousands rather than millions to get Japan to surrender, at the same time also shortening the war significantly, is being a jerk. Not like how it was perfectly nice that the Japanese were basically comitting a wave of terror in China and the south pacific, while working prisoners of war to death, because they could. Also it's a perfectly nice to arm your planes with explosives and incendiaries, instead of weapons, and training the pilots to commit suicide as a form of attack. Also perfectly nice to develop human guided torpedoes that required suicide pilots, while developing other means of killing your own people. Also telling your citizenry that it's safer to commit suicide, instead of surrendering, if the enemy made landing on your shores. It's not being a jerk at all doing exactly what you say the enemy will do to your people if they invade using propaganda, when the enemy has a record of not doing anything like that, but you do. Right, sure, America was being the jerk.

OT: The vast majority of Godzilla games are absolutely god awful, with a handful of tournament fighter type Godzilla games actually being good. This game was shown as not being a tournament fighter, is it any surprise it came out deformed, mentally handicapped, and abuses it's subject matter? Not really, no...

I don't know, this game isn't as fun to hate. Since it's not actually broken or unintentionally hilarious kind of bad like Ride to Hell or Big Rigs and appears to have some fans, all the new videos popping up in the vein of "OMG THIS GAME SUCKS!" don't seem as necessary or as fun this time. If it wasn't a full priced release few would care.

I wonder if anyone will even remember it in the future?

"Godzilla moves like his parents are having sex and he's trying to sneak past the bedroom door."

I laughed so hard at that I fell out of my chair!

Sad though that this is what has become of the "king of monsters"

BoJack Horseman is a great show and I would highly recommend it. This game looks like total ass though, Angry Joe also ripped this game to shreds.

Also I don't believe the bombings of Japan were "criminal" at all, they never would've stopped coming if we hadn't bombed them, yes it sucks that people died because of it, but we couldn't just sit around and wait for Japan to slowly kill themselves by going after us.

Yes, you could of.
It's what your doing in with the war in the middle East right now.
Back then you decided morality didn't force you to commit slow mutual suicide though.

Stupidity:

Did you just suggest that the United States should start using atomic bombs on the middle east?

Or you could buy Just Dance 2015. I'm sure that dancing "The Fox" and "Gangnam Style" is far more entertaining than this...

They started it!

Speaking of the PS2, there actually was a bunch of Godzilla games on it (such as Godzilla Unleashed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTOTSqBLhh4 ), which were a lot better than this game because you could actually move faster than a glacier.
