5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing fun!! January 20, 2003
By A Customer
It's like they took everything that I loved about the monster game genre (King Of The Monsters, Rampage), used it and improved it! So, yes you can feel the king of the monsters feel in it. But, it does it's own thing which is a lot bigger. The single player is very enjoyable and with solid A.I. and absolutely packed with features. You also have options of easy or normal, easy being challenging and normal being hard!. So far I've used Magmo and Ultra. You can really feel the differences. Magmo is super slow, but strong. He's just amazing to watch in action.
Ultra V will probably be everyones favorite. He's like using a transformer or samurai mech toy you had as a kid. Lazer eyes (Complete with the 'bzap bzap' sound effects), a plasma samurai sword and turbo boosters. Every monster I have seen so far is impressive. And, the intro is one of the best I have seen in a game in a long, long time.
The control system becomes 2nd nature within a few minutes of play and the camera is almost flawless. Playing the game with the mechs is an absolute blast. And it feels different then playing with the other monsters. It's hard to explian. Definitely, my favorite character is Ultra V. A Samurai Mech who knows Kung Fu, shoots lazers froms his eyes, has a grappling hookfor the classic 'Get Over Here' move', and a plasma sword. The sound effects of his jet boost are classic, and the metal impact his strikes and landings make are nothing short of spectacular. His Gundam voice has to be mentioned also. My friend has fallen in love with using Robo 47, the American Mech. A very cool robot if I do say so myself. Other cool ones are of course the lava monster, Magmo. Ultra powerful. The rock monster, Agamo who has the best voice in the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters wanted to be! December 9, 2002
War of the Monsters is fast, frenetic, and incredibly fun! Players take control of a 50's-style monster movie monster. There's a glowing plasma creature with one great eye, a Kong-style gorilla, a lava monster, a distinctly American-style gargantuan robot, a sleeker Japanese-style robot, a giant praying mantice, and more.
Unlike the slow, hulking, Toyo Studios-style monsters in Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters, the beasts in War of the Monsters are fast and manueverable. These guys can scale buildings and leap from tower-to-tower.
They also use weapons, and it is amazingly cool. You can pick up a girder and use it like a bat. You can pick up a radio tower and hurl--impaling your opponent. This is Super Smash Bros. with fangs!
The game has enough options to give it semi-respectable depth.
The biggest drawback to this game happens to be Godzilla's greatest strength--four-player competition. Godzilla has it, War of the Monsters does not. You either battle the computer or a friend--a single friend.
You can place bots on the battlefield, but four-player or online battles would have been a great plus.
That said, Incog (formerly Incognito--the Utah company that created Twisted Metal Black), the Sony studio that made War of the Monsters, has done a great job with War of the Monsters.
Incog is establishing itself as one of the few great studios. They proved they could do car wars way back in their Singletrac days--The folks at Incog met at Singletrac, where they did Twisted Metal and Twisted Metal 2.
Sony probably made a great choice, a quiet game like War of the Monsters might well get overlooked during the Christmas rush. They delayed the game for a early 2003 release, and hopefully people will try and appreciate this totally groovy game.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Albeit Short, Ride January 28, 2003
A week ago, I bought War of the Monsters, and today I have just beat it. That is to say, I have unlocked every single character, skin, level, and minigame, as well as having beaten the game with every character in "Adventure" mode. I've had a great deal of fun playing it, but now it seems like there's very little else for me to do, except maybe play through all the difficulty levels or see how long I can last in endurance, although there's little to motivate me to do so.
Graphics 4/5: Very sharp, detailed character models and skins. The levels are equally detailed (and quite destructable). I really loved the fact that most of the skins weren't just "different colors" of the original monsters (each monster has 4 skins, 2 of which need to be unlocked via tokens earned in fights), but actually unique from one another for the most part.
Music/Sound 3/5: I really loved this soundtrack, reminded me a lot of the old 50s monster movies which I always a big fan of. The sound, on the other hand, gets fairly repititive, though that's a given in most fighting games. I played the games mostly on a mono TV, so I can't comment on the stereo sound, but I imagine it to be pretty sweet.
Gameplay 3/5: Gameplay is on the surface incredibly simple - 2 buttons to attack, 1 to throw, and 1 to jump - but is a bit more complex than that for those willing to experiment. When I first started to play, it was nothing but random button mashing, but then I realized that there were actually *combos* in the game. A lot of these combos are real simple, though there are a lot I havn't found yet. For example, the average simple combo is around 3 attacks, but I've gotten some as high as 9 hits, and there's the chance that there are even higher ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Need more of this type of, gem of a game.
One of my favorites of the "smashem-up" games. Bringing back the whole 1950's monster feel was a good change of pace, which there's not a lot of out there.
