Godzilla: Domination is a one-to-four player monster fighting experience, featuring landscape-levelling destruction and claw-to-claw combat. Players take control of Godzilla, Megalon, Mothra and the rest, and stomp around isometrically-presented landscapes, grabbing, tossing, smashing and taking swipes at their opponents. Each monster is equipped with a basic punch and kick move as well as special moves to perform during battle. All the relevant details on how to get the most from your monster are in the manual.

The game includes five modes of play, including Story Mode, where the player can choose from six officially licensed Toho monsters, and set out to destroy the other five creatures and, eventually, the final mystery opponent; Custom Mode, where the player can set up a single battle against a computer-controlled opponent; Multi-Pak Mode, a two-to-four player linked melee to see which will be the last monster standing; Single-Pak Mode, using only one cartridge, allows players to battle it out, but all as the same monster, in an up-to-four-player free-for-all; and Survival Mode, where the player faces off against the GBA to see how many monsters can be defeated in a row.

Atari are making a big, big deal about their acquisition of the rights to the Toho monsters, and rightly so. These beasts haven't had proper representation in video games for a long while, and with Domination on the GBA and the simultaneous release of Destroy All Monsters Melee for GameCube, Atari get a big RROOOAAARR! of approval from us.
