Ruckus (Dreams) Review

Ruckus Just Another Natural Disaster (to use its full name) is a fighting game where you are destroying the city rather than other players. You play a Godzilla-style monster and must cause as much havoc before the missiles land and end your reign of distraction. Backed by mellow jazz and accompanied by understated news reports, this is both fun and slightly unsettling as you race to discover new ways to damage the fabric of society.
