Godzilla Unleashed - first look

The Wii version's roster will also boast two new monsters, created just for the game. No clue what they'll look like, though we got some odd concept art for a Sphinx-looking monster being built for the DS version.

We're also waiting to see how the story mode develops. It starts with a meteor shower that devastates several US cities and causes skyscraper-sized crystals to sprout all over the eight in-game battlefields. These crystals will have some effect upon the monsters in battle, but we don’t yet know what.

We do know that each of the four factions will see different scenes and take unique paths through the game, and that the story branches. If you walk into a city being ravaged by a monster, you have a choice to repel it and save the city, or join up and double the demolition. Given the huge level of destructibility in the cities, your choice won't be easy. Especially if you're playing with a friend - though online plans have yet to be confirmed, same-system multiplayer modes plan to support two-to-four players (at least, on Wii). Knock down a wall to give yourself more room to swing those arms - you're going to need it come this fall.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
