When Pipeworks Software's monter battle royale, Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee, was released in 2003, Gojira fans rejoiced. Featuring a handful of some of Toho's more iconic kaiju and destructive environments, Destroy All Monsters Melee was close to the Rampage-like experience with Toho monsters we always wanted. 2004's follow-up, Save the Earth, delivered even more: New monsters, new game play modes, and more importantly online multiplayer. While neither of the two games was perfect, the improvements and fixes between Melee and Save the Earth made it seem as if Pipeworks was well on their way towards perfecting the core gameplay.

Rather than finding that hoped-for improvement to the core gameplay, Harper instead contends with poorly implemented features and an atrocious control scheme for the Wii remote. UGO gives Godzilla Unleashed an overall rating of C-.
