Godzilla: Save The Earth
Godzilla has been fighting monsters, destroying buildings, and scouring the seas for a long time. With all the battles he’s had, it made sense for game developers to craft a game centered around the prolific kaiju. Godzilla: Save The Earth is a follow-up to the Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee and exceeds it in many categories.
The game features an enormous playable roster, fun gameplay mechanics, and astonishing visuals. Like GigaBash, this game specializes in arena fighter combat, allowing players to fight monsters with their claws and by throwing buildings. The game comes jam-packed with an entertaining story mode that have you run through a gauntlet of some of Godzilla’s fiercest nemeses.
The game’s map selection is as grand as its character roster. Many people will love taking their fight to cities or space. With a neat art gallery and some heart-pumping music, you’re sure to love this game if you adored GigaBash.
Power Stone is a dormant Capcom series many fighting game enthusiasts want to see return for a modern audience. Due to being a Sega Dreamcast and PSP title, Power Stone may be difficult to find for some folks. However, the game’s worth locating for its incredible arena fighter gameplay, likable roster, and marvelous arena design.
Unfortunately, players can’t play as enormous kaiju nor can they chuck building at each other. Instead, the game includes several items for players to use in combat. The power stones can also provide characters with incredible power boosts. These boosts will allow characters to transform and utilize powerful attacks that can do insane damage to your opponent.
Since this is a Capcom game, fans can expect the music to be as stellar as their other fighting game series. This will help fans stay engaged with the battles and make them feel more exhilarated. If you seek another arena fighter with a fun playable roster, check this game out.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
When it comes to beloved Shonen Jump properties, Naruto is among the few that are genuinely popular. The anime and manga hold a special place in fans’ hearts and inspired future tales that are currently releasing in Shonen Jump today. What better way to appreciate Naruto’s legacy, than to play as he and his friends in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4?
While previous entries feature enormous character rosters and nice reimaginings of Naruto’s storyline, this game offers a definitive experience. It features a solid roster, great gameplay and modes, and adrenaline-pumping soundtracks that will make your fights feel grandiose and mesmerizing. This is one of the more interactive ways to relive Naruto Shippuden’s final story beats.
Even if you’re unfamiliar with Naruto, you’re bound to adore the game’s fast-paced action and beautiful visuals. Therefore, I’d recommend giving this game a shot if you’re after more enjoyable arena fighters.
Monster Hunter Rise
Capcom’s known for developing action-centric works that will get fans excited. From games like Marvel Vs. Capcom to Street Fighter, the company knows how to get gamers pumped for fighting games. While Monster Hunter Rise isn’t a fighting game, this title will appeal to those who enjoyed the monster mayhem found in GigaBash’s gameplay.
In it, players are hunters who embark on several missions to slay monsters or retrieve specific goods. Slaying monsters allows players to carve them for parts. You’ll sell these parts to make money or use them to craft better gear. The game features some maps with beautiful oceans, gorgeous ruins, and calming forest life. You’ll love the diversity of each map and its many secret locations.
The game’s storyline isn’t anything dynamic or complex. Players will enjoy this series more for its gameplay than the plot. If you’re looking for an action game where you can battle large monsters, check out Monster Hunter Rise.
Gang Beasts is a comical, fun, and entertaining title that’s worth your time. It’s simplistic in scope and design but packs a massive punch. The game works much like WWE’s Royal Rumble event. In the game, you control a cutesy character who must knock out and throw the opponent out of the arena to claim victory. You may need to devote time to practicing the game’s controls.
After playing Gang Beasts for a while, you’ll get used to its control scheme and design. You can play on many creative maps, and it has stellar online functionality. Gang Beast gives players options to customize their characters for a more personalized experience. Expect to laugh hysterically at your and your friends’ constant mistakes.
War of the Monsters
War of the Monsters is another 4 player arena fighter. It sets on Earth during an alien invasion. The aliens left behind a toxic waste that caused all sorts of monsters to appear and cause mayhem. These monsters will fight in free-for-all matches to determine who is the strongest among them all. This game has the same formula as GigaBash.
You’ll choose from a variety of monsters. You’ll work toward depleting your opponent’s health bar by throwing punches, kicks, and items at your opponent. You can roam the environment freely, causing destruction with every step. Monsters can perform special attacks to drain their opponent’s health bar swiftly.
The monsters are inspired by classic kaiju like Godzilla and King Kong. They all have clashing personalities, abilities, and weaknesses. If you’re looking for another arena brawler where you can play as giant kaiju, check out War of the Monsters.
Dawn of the Monsters
Dawn of the Monsters is a fun beat-em-up side scroller. It mashes Streets of Rage’s addictive gameplay loop with giant rampaging monsters inspired by beasts like Godzilla. While the gameplay is different from GigaBash, this is another game that’ll entice kaiju lovers from around the world. The game features multiple monsters for you to play as.
Many resemble beasts you’d find in kaiju-oriented works. They also have excellent special attacks and love causing a ruckus in every city they traverse. Your goal is to defeat swarms of monsters and bosses at the end of each level. The bosses start off easy but get more difficult the more you progress in the game.
This game offers some enticing RPG-like gameplay mechanics like skill trees. This entices players to continue playing since you can unlock unique attributes for your beast that’ll make its villains easier to defeat. With an incredible soundtrack, unique comic-book-styled visuals, and an alluring narrative, Dawn of the Monsters is worth your time.
Rampage is a classic arcade game many people aren’t aware of. Titles like Pac-Man often overshadow this game, despite the gameplay being memorable alongside its cast. Its simple yet invigorating gameplay will pull you in and the game’s graphics were astonishing when it was released. In it, players control one of three monsters.
These include a gorilla named George, a reptile named Lizzie, and a bipedal wolf named Ralph. Each monster has different reasons for existing, but a similar goal, and that’s to cause widespread chaos by crushing buildings. However, the military won’t be tolerating their horrendous activity and will do its best to put a stop to it.
The game gets more difficult the more you advance. Buildings become bigger and taller and the military brigade ups its personnel. It’s a simple yet addictive gameplay loop that’ll satisfy any kaiju enthusiast.
Arena fighter fans who have a party of four should look into Buissons. In Buissons, players must take control of a bush and compete in a game of hide-and-seek against three other players. This activity takes place at night, but you can use the daytime to scout and plan your moves accordingly. Buissons help players improve their observation skills.
You’ll adore thwarting your friends’ plans and getting a kick out of the game’s fart button. The character animations are charming and well-drawn. Like GigaBash, this game’s best played with a group of friends. You can play online via Steam’s Remote Play feature, but the developers recommend gamers play the title locally. If you’re looking for another fun-filled game that’ll make you laugh, check this one out.
Pokken Tournament DX
For a more action-oriented title, I’d check out Pokken Tournament DX. It’s what you expect, a mash-up between the Pokemon and Tekken franchises. It doesn’t feature any Tekken characters, but Pokken’s gameplay is reminiscent of it. This title includes tightly-packed stages, a great roster size, and fun modes for you to play.
In it, players can choose from different Pokemon like Pikachu, Charizard, and Mewtwo. You’ll fight in one versus match-up and utilize standard and special attacks to deplete your opponent’s health points. The game is jam-packed with a variety of intruiging stages with colorful designs and sets. Each Pokemon offers a different fighting style.
It’s important to choose someone who appeals to your play style. Therefore, if you love monster-fighting games with fun gameplay mechanics and gorgeous stages, give this a shot.
