Most people have a soft spot for the beefy-thighed lizard, but that doesn’t mean that everything featuring Godzilla is worth jumping on board with. In fact, when it comes to gaming, some of the releases based on Godzilla over the years have been horrifically bad.

The movies have always been worth watching, with a number of classic releases registering huge success in the past. When it comes to the gaming options, though, it’s fair to describe the offering as a fairly mixed bag. Some games don’t offer up the all-around chaos and destruction expected of a Godzilla release, while others were never going to deliver due to weak graphics or poor controls.

It is a shame, especially for fans of the beast desperate to satisfy their cravings in-between movies. Other fearsome monsters have been handled better by a variety of developers, too, with casino sites offering a great experience with your favourite character from Mighty Kong slots. Not every Godzilla gaming release has been appalling, though. Some games eventually become hit releases, although the vast majority haven’t.

With that in mind, we thought we’d go through some of the worst of them. Games developers, take note.

Super Godzilla - 1994

Available on the SNES in 1994, Super Godzilla had impressive graphics for its time, but the gameplay really held it back. Most of the game was spent staring at a map searching for action. As you trudged around annoyingly slowly in search of other monsters to fight against, the game became even less appealing. Then, which was perhaps the final straw for many, once you did encounter an enemy, the battle system in place was hard to understand.

Godzilla - 1990

Godzilla games should feature chaos and mayhem from the start to the very end. It’s what fans of the beast have become familiar with, although sadly, this 1990 release didn’t possess any of it. In actual fact, it was a gentle puzzle game with no destruction whatsoever. In terms of being a cutesy puzzle-platformer the developers nailed it, but no Godzilla game should ever be that.

Godzilla: Unleashed - 2007

Godzilla: Unleashed had to make the list. The game had an all-star lineup featuring the likes of King Ghidorah and Fire Rodan, but it came under fire for its shambolic controls, terrible graphics, and a general rushed and incomplete feel. It felt like a lazy release, designed to make an extra bit of cash although it did sell well compared to other games of its type.

Godzilla 2: War of the Monsters - 1992

A game with strategic play at its heart, Godzilla 2: War of the Monsters was the second Godzilla game on the SNES. Playing as the military trying to stop the beast in his tracks, the aim of the game was to outwit Godzilla and save the public in the process. Although it was a well thought out idea it was simply too hard to understand. Plus, although being up against Godzilla is appealing to some, the vast majority of fans want to play as the creature. Smashing things up and causing mayhem is what we’ve all come to expect from a Godzilla game.

Godzilla: Monster of Monsters - 1989

Godzilla: Monster of Monsters was a truly painful game to play. Yet another failed NES release, the game is based in space. That in itself was a disappointment as it meant there was no buildings to destroy. The weird board game in between levels didn’t help either. The main character was painfully slow to operate, too. Overall, Godzilla: Monster of Monsters didn’t have much to write home about.

I tried playing Monster of Monsters and it was too hard for me... usually, I can understand some NES games (Rygar, Rattle n' Roll, and River City Ransom being some examples) but the way MoM was laid out and the number of things you have to focus on at the same time just takes away the fun.

I've really enjoyed the wii version of Unleashed. the Ps2 version felt like a STE copy paste with slighlty better graphics.
