  • Summary: In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 combines the devastating power of the Mobile Suit, the rich legacy of the Gundam universe and the furious Tactical Action game play of the Dynasty Warriors series. The game thrusts players into incredible battles against legions of enemy Mobile Suits on distant planetary surfaces and in the far reaches of outer space. For the first time, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 lets players engage in melee battles against colossal enemies such as the Psycho Gundam. The massive Psycho Gundam can quickly reconfigure their bodies into titanic mobile fortresses which can move with remarkable speed. However, highly-trained pilots can utilize their own Mobile Suit’s speed, agility, and of course firepower to defeat these deadly juggernauts. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 also includes new stories featuring mecha from the latest Gundam anime, plus mecha from Char’s Counter Attack and more. With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players can adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

  1. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 should exclusively be played by its fans. Newcomers won’t appreciate the storyline or building the mechs as much as a fanatic would.
  2. Dynasty Warriors fans will be happy with this offering because the gameplay is still the same but you now have the opportunity to fight in something that doesn't involve the Yellow Turban rebellion.
  3. I would love to say Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is an improvement over the original, but it's honestly not -- at least not on the level of a numerically graduated title.
  4. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is a repetitive and bland hack 'n slash experience with a thick anime coat of paint.
  5. 49
    The PS2 version really is a minor disaster. It's so blurry and it stutters so frequently, I can easily say it's the worst version of the three -- even if it has the same content as its current-gen counterparts.
  6. Having varying objectives that may change at a moment’s notice add a little flavor to this very bland dish, but it’s not enough to save it.
  7. This bot-filled sequel delivers all of the mind-numbing monotony that we've come to expect from the Dynasty Warriors franchise.

    This game takes the Dynasty Warriors franchise and turns it on it's head. Great content and relentless battles take this to the extreme of action fighting games! Collapse

    the first game was a 5 at best....but this sequal is 5x if not more times better in every aspect....nothing is perfect but for a dynasty warriors game to get this much attention from me has to be doing something right.....9/10. Expand

    I really enjoyed the first DWG so i couldn't wait to play the second . Unfortunitly the second game doesn't bring alot new to the table . Even though now it has a ungodly amount of missions for you to play in mission mode . They feel like such a bore to do since now you are doing them to unlock other mobile suites to use which in the first you didnt have too do and now you have to keep friendship relations up to unlock missions. which means alot of pointless grinding through levels just to boost that up. It would have been much better served just having 10-15 story missions and forgetting all that other crap. A online VS mode was also added which is dead so no use ever checking that out. The game is fun but if you have the first one there is just not enough in this one to warrent a buy. Expand
