  • Best enjoyed with some raucous friends, GigaBash allows you to take out frustrations kaiju style, wrecking destructible cities in the process

    If you’re a fan of mayhem and destruction, this generation of indie games has given you a few varied choices for dropping into cities and tearing things apart. Whether going with a throwback style that pays homage to the arcade classic Rampage, or going in a more beat-em-up direction, there has been some fun variety. GigaBash goes its own route, going more with a 4-player brawl format where you’ll choose your massive monsters and lay the smackdown on each other as the city is torn apart around you. One pleasant surprise is that given the 3D environment, buildings everywhere, and reasonably fleshed out controls every match-up doesn’t need to feel the same. Tactics can be fluid when you have the ability to pick up and throw large objects, including buildings, at each other or even use them as obstacles to get away from the action and regroup. If you’re going it solo there’s the option of a story mode that may not be terribly long but at least tries to add a little flavor to the overall package when you don’t have anyone to play with locally, though online play is always there as an option (keeping in mind how hit or miss that can be, especially after a few weeks). If you want to add a little more authentic flavor you can also pick up the DLC pack to play with the likes of Godzilla himself along with a few other legendary kaiju associates. While its staying power will be dependent on your continued joy of mixing it up with some friends, it’s at least a pretty distinctive package of destruction.
