Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game is full of cartoon violence as Godzilla and other monsters fight, but there is no blood. The game is rife with gameplay and technical issues that make it a questionable choice for players of any age, including Godzilla fans.
Is It Any Good?
It's a neat idea in theory, but unfortunately gameplay falls flat for several reasons. Hit detection is poor, and the monsters' moves are basic and sluggish to execute. Levels are unimaginative, consisting of repeating cityscapes with wave after wave of the same types of enemy that can be easily dispatched (or simply avoided) with little strategy or thought. The monsters only look straight ahead and can't turn around to face backwards, which makes boss battles maddening.
Another serious complaint is that you can't save the game during story mode -- if you quit half way through, you'll have to start back at the beginning. The only way to complete story mode is to play it all the way through in one sitting, which is an unfair time commitment and a primitive throwback to arcade games of twenty years ago. It's hard to call Godzilla Unleashed: Double Strike anything less than a profound disappointment. The King of Monsters definitely deserves better.
