    A decade ago the video game company Atari had developed three Godzilla fighting games for game systems from 2002 to 2007. The games are

    Godzilla Destroy all Monsters Melee (2002/2003 on the Gamecube and X-box)

    Godzilla Save the Earth (2004 on the X-box and Playstation 2)

    Godzilla Unleashed ( 2007 on the Wii,DS and Playstation 2)

    I enjoyed these games greatly and does anyone here used to play them and if so do you like them?

    I was a BIG fan of Destroy all Monsters on the original Xbox.
    It was one of the few games that actually supported custom soundtracks.

    However, I feel the subsequent sequels, even thought they added more monsters, they went backwards in a lot of regards.

    Yeah, Destroy All Monsters was great! Save The Earth was kinda fun, but Unleashed... Bleh.

    I felt that by 'enhancing' the game with motion controls in Unleashed they made it difficult to do even basic moves.

    It was also painfully obvious that they were using the exact same character models from the Wii revs. :(

    I can only remember playing one of them with a friend on PS2, but it was a blast. Don't think it was unleashed, so that leaves only one option.

    DAM:M and Save the Earth were ace.

    Unleashed was bloody awful though. Combat just became a slap fight until someone threw an uppercut, and the beam lock/battling shit was so random I ended up just never using projectiles unless the enemy had no energy.

    Kudos for using Titanosaurus and 70's Mechagodzilla, even if they made the latter look awful.

    I have the first one on Gamecube, it's awesome! Loved this game, despite having to play it solo most of the time. I remember paying a lot as Radon, as I discoverd some sweet (or cheap) move that was really good :D

    Destroy All Monsters Melee was awesome. :)  Too bad you couldn't play as Mothra in that game. :(

    Ah, Destroy All Monsters Melee, fond memories there. One of my favorite GCN games hands down. I have Unleashed, but that's kinda being saved for a rainy day boredom playing. Hopefully a 4th game will come out someday.

    The first two games DAMM and Save the Earth to me are great, but Save the Earth was fun because I played as MOGUERA. I've seen Unleashed, but unfortuately didn't have a Wii, but reading about how bad it was thank god I didn't play it. I agree with some of you guys that their should be a four game.

    Save the Earth was great. MOGUERA, Baragon, Spacegodzilla, and Mechagodzilla 3 were all great additions to the cast.

    I just wish they hadn't gone to the wii with Unleashed, motion controls ruined it. No Online play was also unforgivable after it was available in Save the Earth.
