The game got extremely negative reviews, IGN's, which was one of the first Dreamcast game reviews by a western source, slammed it for being tedious and simple. The graphics where also harshly critizied. Gamespot said that the inability to block and the fact all the Kaiju could heal made the game boring.
Fans have generally been much kinder to the game, since it's one of the few that has Minilla and Zilla as playable characters, and also one of the few games that allows free-roaming destruction.
- This game is one of the biggest Toho Kaiju compilations, along with Godzilla Movie Studio Tour, Kaiju-Oh Godzilla and Godzilla Trading Battle.
